The pants are made from the same Fieldsheer-developed 500 denier Maxtena-Pro outer shell — “heavy duty” stuff.
With a different approach and to simplify the on/off process, the Exkin Air insulating liner is attached to the Nanomax waterproof removable membrane in the pants.
Like the Adventure Tour jacket, this makes the pants perform very nicely in the coldest temperatures in which anyone would care to ride.
But, maybe it’s not quite the optimum setup for summer, although if it’s raining hard enough to need the waterproof liner, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to have the insulating liner backing it up anyway.
The pants have a full-length zipper at the waist to hold the liner, with snaps in the legs. And the knee protectors have 3-way height adjustment.
Full-length zippers on either side of the shell and the liner mean that the Adventure Tour pants can be worn as overpants.
But their cut with a trimmer style, so they don’t look like baggy overpants (and that’s good).
Two pockets in front, two in back and one on the right (?) thigh all use waterproof zippers and the waist has plenty of adjustment and some elastic for comfort, along with an 8″ attachment zipper.
Like the jacket, the pants come in a varied size range in regular and short lengths, from S to 4XL.
Our conclusion is that the Adventure Tour pants make a nice addition to the jacket but the pants will also work with any other jacket, regardless of brand.
These are very nice, all-around useful motorcycle pants that perform in a wide variety of conditions.
One difference here is that if you leave the liner in to hold off the rain, you get the insulation by default.
We’ve been wearing the pants as cooler-weather fall riding gear and it hasn’t rained in some time, so it’s hard to offer a pro or con on wearing the pants with or without the liner.
We did try a quick water hose test on both the jacket and pants and the Nanomax liner does the deed.
Will That Be Overpants or Regular?
Note that these are both overpants and regular pants. We didn’t even realize that at first and we’ve been wearing them as a normal pair of riding pants anyway and, in fact, they both look and perform very nicely that way.
The pants shell and the liner have full-length zippers on either leg.
so you can slip them on over a pair of jeans or something, although it might get tight with the liner installed, depending on your sizing and what type of pants you’re wearing.
The zipper on the shell has a full-length flap to keep out the water.
But the zippers on the liner do not, so in those real torrential downpours when you’re riding for 8 hours straight (who does that anyway and if you do, get a full-on rain suit) you may get some crotch wetness.
