REV’IT! Everest GTX Pants Review The new Rev’it Everest GTX pants are the perfect match for the Everest GTX jacket (review). But the pants would also make an excellent choice for pairing with any other motorcycle jacket. They’re fully waterproof, light weight, comfortable and beautifully tailored. The Exkin Air insulation works very well also and the …

Tourmaster Flex Pants Review The Tourmaster Flex textile pants have the same rugged build quality and the “convertible” versatility of the Tourmaster Flex LE jacket (review). This is a high-quality, rugged pair of pants that also have the ability to adapt to any season or weather condition. Police Motor Units may want to consider this civilian …

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 …

BKS Gloucester Waterproof Trousers Review By far the best-made and most comfortable motorcycle trousers I’ve ever worn — and probably the least stylish. Motorcycle trousers aren’t very exciting. Helmets, jackets and gloves give you plenty of ways to express your style and individuality, but trousers are much of a muchness and tend to go unnoticed. …

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” …

Low-rise jeans with a women’s specific fit that hugs our curves; there’s no need to settle for men’s baggy riding jeans. ATGATT: All the gear, all the time. Many …

Key Indigo Denim Dungarees Review An inexpensive double-front jean that could be used for riding, but are they the bargain they appear to be? Unreasonable demands! Yep, I said it and here’s why: It’s unreasonable to expect denim jeans to take the place of pants designed specifically for motorcycling. I’ll admit I’ve done it, and …

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.

Joe Rocket Dry Tech Nano Pants Review Styled to mach the Joe Rocket Nano jacket (review), the Nano pants offer the same potential for water resistance. They’re comfortable and warm, with a thick liner but a looser-than-average fit. The Joe Rocket Dry Tech Nano pants are made to pair with the Nano jacket, although either could …

Scorpion “Haley” Pants Review These low-rise leather pants have CE approved knee and hip armor. They also include adjustment straps on the legs for a custom fit. With all the finishing touches, the Haley pants are anything but boring. Leather or textile riding pants — that is the question. When I started shopping for gear, …

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 …

Duluth Trading Company Fire Hose Loggers Jeans Review Another pair of working men’s pants moonlighting as motorcycle gear. Back in May of this year, webBikeWorld presented a review and comparison of two different approaches to jeans for motorcycling: Cortech DSX Jeans vs. Carhartt Double-Front Work Dungarees. The Cortech DSX jeans were designed from the ground up …

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 …

Scorpion Savannah Pants Review Flattering riding pants with attitude, armor and plenty of style. What more could a woman want? How about: 1) Versatility – a removable windproof liner takes these textile and mesh pants from cool mornings to hot afternoons. 2) Options – Scorpion’s Savannah Pants are available in three colors. 3) Value – …

Cortech vs. Carhartt Jeans Review Two pair enter, one pair leaves. Which will it be? We all want to be as comfortable as we can be when riding our motorcycles. And now with the weather warming up — here in the Northern Hemisphere anyway — the urge to quickly throw on a pair of blues …

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 …

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 …

Rev’it Cayenne Pro Pants Review The new Rev’it Cayenne Pro pants are designed to be the perfect match for the Cayenne Pro jacket, but they’re also make a very nice all-around pair of trousers for touring, sport-touring or general motorcycling. They include sharp “Enduro/Adventure” styling, high-quality tailoring and materials and dual liners that zip connect …

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 …

SHIFT “Lowdown” Jeans Review Very comfortable; slightly heavier than normal denim; stylish and with Kevlar lining. Also include stretch panels at the crotch and rear waist. SHIFT is another relatively new motorcycle clothing brand attempting to establish itself in the U.S. I’m not sure if the gear is actually made by Shift; I could be …

The Latest Joe Rocket Phoenix Outfit for Summer The Joe Rocket Phoenix mesh outfit is reasonably priced. The jacket fits well and it flows a lot of air. It is also an improvement over the original Joe Rocket Phoenix jacket. But the fit of the pants is a problem and they’re not as well ventilated. …

Expensive as far as jeans go, but if they live up to their claims — a bargain. Are any jeans worth $399 a pair? Only you can decide, but for me it’s cheap insurance. This reviewer caught the motorcycle bug again — 15 long years since selling his last bike, a 1989 Honda CBR 600. …

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.

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. Rev’it updates their clothing probably more frequently than any other company I can think of. For example, during the time that the Shoei RF-1000 helmet has been available, Rev’it has …

Firstgear Hypertex Mesh Women’s Pants It doesn’t make any sense, at least to me, to have the FirstGear Hypertex Meshtex mesh jacket (review) without having a matching set of pants. I don’t like to wear jeans when riding, first because I don’t think that jeans offer even a minimum amount of protection and also because jeans just …

Rev’it Airvent Mesh Pants This is Rev’it! month at webBikeWorld — in addition to this review of the new Rev’it! Airvent mesh motorcycle pants, we’re in the process of evaluating the new Rev’it! Cayenne jacket, Ultimate pants, Ultimate gloves and their new Fusion boots. I got a quick overview of these new Rev’it! products during …

Draggin’ Jeans Draggin Jeans are a good alternative for motorcyclists who like to ride in jeans but are looking for something more substantive than flimsy cotton street pants. Many riders favor warm or hot weather for riding, but not me. The perfect riding temperatures for me are somewhere in the mid 60 degree range. That …

Bohn Bodyguard CoolAir Pants Review Padded and armored pants offer protection when worn under jeans or leathers. The Cool Air mesh provides good air flow and are designed for warm weather. Is there a place for body armor in a world of motorcyclists whose riding gear consists of shorts and a T-shirt? I’m continually amazed …

Diamond Gusset Jeans Review Comfortable, nicely tailored and good quality. Available in many colors and styles. Extra gusset in crotch makes them more comfortable than regular jeans. There’s not much that can be said about a pair of motorcycle jeans. I don’t usually wear jeans for riding, although I seem to be in the minority. …

Insulated Pants Match Any Jacket The Roadgear Euro-Tec pants are comfortable, warm and waterproof. They’re also breathable. The lightweight padding is the compromise for comfort. You can’t beat a nice pair of textile overpants. Throw ’em on over your street clothes for your ride to work or down to the local hardware store. Granted, some …
