Looking for some good pants...

Ok, I am getting close to finishing up my winter bike accesory/clothing shopping and I need to get some decent biking pants. I have the following already:

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...s--609924.html

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...s--610068.html

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...t--614912.html

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...s--610089.html

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...urce=cleverset

I am looking for more of the casual pants like denim pants above or the Air-Flo type things that people have worn that they feel are comfortable. I am not looking for padded stuff necessarily. The denim stuff above have no armor, but are designed for bikers none-the-less. I can't try the crap on really anywhere so I am looking for opinions of stuff you guys have purchased and liked.

Did the pain meds create a void in your life you are trying to fill?

Search the board for motoport air mesh kevlar (actually, just search for motoport). They are great.

You got any suggestions, or do you just freeball it these days? I need some comfortable stuff - mainly for the longer trips.

No, I wear underarmour stuff on longer trips. Keeps me comfortable

Some buzz about Draggin jeans, Iron Heart jeans, and Ducati jeans though.

You're welcome. BTW, Jammin and somebody else also have them (Jammin has 2pc suit from this stuff). I believe they are also happy with it.

I'm also considering getting a two piece. Greatest stuff in hot weather.

If you will be in the city, you can stop by and check them out. I crashed wearing those pants at ~70 and there're only small abrasions, no holes.

paul cant you just make a list and make one post how do you keep track of all these threads lately

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I usually try to do a bunch of research first, but there are a few things I need opinions on. I've already burned money on stuff I thought I knew enough about only to find that I should have asked - after it was too late. Because I am doing this in stages, it's hard to know what I will need help with until I get to it.

I am coming off of years of going blindly at this stuff. I figure it's about time I do it right.

You cheaped out on the Icon pants. I am not too impressed with my pockets getting holes in them leaving me in search of my keys after it falls out.

Yes, hence this thread. They weren't cheap - well, maybe they were, but they suck. No more Icon pants, although I like their jackets.
