Sliders “All Season 2” Pants With Kevlar The Sliders All Season 2 Pants With Kevlar provide a good balance of protection and hot weather riding comfort. I live in a part of the country that has seasons. Four of them. In summer (as it is now), it is hot and humid. But when winter comes, …

Rukka “AirVision” Pants Review The Rukka AirVision pants are, of course, the perfect match the Rukka Airway jacket, reviewed in Part 1. The pants could be worn with other Rukka jackets or with jackets from other manufacturers, although that doesn’t seem likely. The AirVision pants have the same Cordura AFT mesh fabric as the Airway jacket …

Sliders Cargo Pants Purpose-built motorcycling pants thinly disguised as regular cargo pants. I have reviewed several different motorcycle pants and jeans through the years. But some of them are not specifically designed as motorcycle riding apparel. For example, see my Cortech and Carhartt jeans review. Or my Duluth Firehose Logging Pants review. Those are both pretty popular …

Rukka “Armas” Pants Review The Rukka Armas pants are the perfect match theRukka Armas jacket (review) but they could also be worn with other Rukka jackets or with other brands. The pants incorporate most of the same high-tech ingredients, including the Gore-Tex Pro Shell with Armacor exterior. A removable suspenders system and a nearly full-length zipper …

The Spirit pants are fully waterproof at the outer boundary layer and they do not require an inner waterproof liner. The …

Bilt Trackstar Leather Pants Review A very good pair of leather sport pants for the price point. Let me state first that I’ve never considered myself a leather pants kind of guy. Certainly leather is a great material for motorcycle apparel and I have always owned a leather motorcycle jacket, gloves and boots, but pants …

Klim Badlands Pro Pants The new Klim Badlands Pro pants are the perfect match for the Badlands Pro jacket (review) — naturally! But the pants are also a good match with many other jackets. They feature the same rugged exterior and Gore-Tex Pro Shell guaranteed waterproof construction used in the Badlands Pro jacket. The Badlands pro pants …

Lightweight REV’IT! Pants The new REV’IT! Axis pants were announced in 2011 as a match for the REV’IT! Energy HV (review)commuter jacket. These lightweight pants have a clever and unique design. But they’re missing a few important features, perhaps making them too much of a compromise. The REV’IT! Axis pants (or trousers as they’re known in …

Firstgear HT Overpants Review If you want what is arguably one of the best heavy duty textile outer garments on the market, then these pants, albeit slightly flawed, are the solution. Firstgear continues to offer a wide size range for the HT and other product lines, one reason why their products may be in such …

REV’IT! Defender GTX Pants The new REV’IT! Defender GTX pants are, of course, the perfect match for the Defender GTX jacket. The pants are just as waterproof and just as warm as the jacket and they have a similar tailored fit that keeps the armor and padding in place. Features like a reinforced seat, grip …

Version 2 for the Firstgear Escape TPG Pants This is the third review of Firstgear TPG products; first was the original Rainier TPG jacket (review), reviewed in 2008. One year ago, in November of 2009, I reviewed the updated Firstgear Teton TPG jacket along with the matching Firstgear TPG Escape pants. Now in November 2010 I’m reviewing “Version 3” …

Speed and Strength Pants Pants to match the Speed and Strength jackets, but which could also be worn with other brands. Both of these pants feature a zip-off panel that exposes a mesh insert for ventilation and water-resistant removable liner. I hope I don’t have to type the phrase “Speed and Strength ‘Coast is Clear’ …

British Motorcycle Gear BMG “Adventure” Pants Review These lighter weight pants fit like a comfortable pair of jeans and they’re  a good match for the British Motorcycle Gear Adventure jacket. I briefly mentioned the British Motorcycle Gear Adventure pants in my review of the BMG Adventure jacket, Part 1 of this two-part review. The Adventure pants …

The New Mid-Range Sand Pants The new REV’IT! Sand pants are here and they’re a perfect match for the REV’IT! Sand jacket (review).

More TPG Gear The Firstgear Escape pants are designed as part of the Firstgear TPG system but they would make an excellent choice no matter what jacket brand you own. They’re very comfortable with a “real people” fit. Featuring a water-resistant outer shell, Knox armor and a removable thermal liner, the Escape pants were obviously …

Diamond Gusset Defender Jeans Review Very comfortable and good-looking jeans with a Kevlar bonus! Denim jeans have been popular with motorcycle riders since, well, since the beginning of time, and with good reason. First of all, no doubt about it — they’re really comfortable. They also flow a lot more air than any leather or …

Ixon “Ambitious” Pants Review Ixon’s Ambitious pants have a great name, but do they live up to the moniker? Ixon is a French company that has been producing motorcycle-specific gear for several years. webBikeWorld has reviewed some of their products before, namely their X-Pand tank bag, and found the company’s products are innovative and well-made. The …

Joe Rocket Speedmaster 5.0 Perforated Pants Review Ask me what the Joe Rocket brand represents and I’d probably say “a line of decent, serviceable motorcycle apparel, sold at reasonable prices”. While their products might not be the most stylish or the most innovative (although I’m sure they’d argue with that), one thing’s for sure: you …

REV’IT! Mistral Mesh Pants Review Stylish mesh pants with Rev’it quality.  These fit better than the Rev’it Airvent mesh pants we reviewed several years ago.  With the zip-in Hydratex wind- and water-proof liner, these could be three-season pants, depending on your local climate.  Get ’em while you can though; our sources tell us that the Rev’it Mistral …

Motoport Police Kevlar Pants Review High quality pants offer good protection and are useful in many different environments. My goal was to find a pair of pants with a high level of protection throughout the garment. The pants also had to be practical to wear even in the warm, humid weather that is typical here …

REV’IT! Off Track Jacket and Dakar Pants I think we can safely credit BMW with popularizing the Adventure Touring or Enduro styling movement way back in 1980. I’m not saying that BMW started the fad; in fact, this type of motorcycle, which is a sort of two-wheel equivalent of an SUV, has one of the oldest legacies …

BMG Pioneer Pants Robust all-around motorcycle pants with removable insulating liner. Slightly higher than normal waist provides good lower back coverage. Perfect match for the Challenger jacket we reviewed just a couple of weeks ago. The “classic” Belstaff motorcycle clothing line has been sold and distributed in the U.S.A. by British Motorcycle Gear for several years. …

Roadgear Tierra del Fuego Pants We’re very lucky indeed to have a huge selection of motorcycle jackets, pants, helmets, gloves and other gear lying in wait for the next webBikeWorld review. But even with all of the various combinations of jackets and pants to choose from, I still seem to gravitate towards one or two …

Excellent Cold Weather Jacket and Pants Outfit It was exactly two years ago today that we took delivery of the unique clone Jacket and Pants for evaluation. At that time, we came away very impressed with Teknic’s “out of the box” thinking and the multiple features that made the outfit a real standout. The uniqueness …

REV’IT! Challenge Pants More:  wBW Reviews Home  |  See our review of the Rev’it Airforce mesh jacketand Solar mesh gloves, which are a good match for the Challenge pants.
