Good leather pants

I am looking for good leather bike pants that fit well without needing to be zipped onto a matching jacket. All of mine are designed to work well with a like jacket and zipped together.

Anyone have anything they recommend?

Thanks!

I have 3 pairs of leather pants Paul. I have the FirstGear ErgoTech pants, HDTony has them too. I also have Honda Racing Leather Pants and The Tourmaster Apex....but they all have zippers, I never use them.

The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

You're looking for pants that don't zip together?

Regardless, I really like the SHIFT racing pants and don't think the zipper would get in the way if you decided not to use it.

They do have some nice jackets that zip into them.

Thanks all. Yah, the ones I have sag down and bulge out unless they are zipped onto a jacket. I am looking for ones that fit well while on a bike without needing to be zipped up - even if they have a zipper.

Paul, thats the nature of leather once it's broken in, especially motorcycle pants.

Joe rocket speedmaster pants stay up without having to be zipped in......

Since you dont want them to zip into a jacket, I am assuming these are for bedroom use or you are trying out to be a Chippendale dancer?

I bought some heavy-duty suspenders (carhart) that clasp onto my heavy ass leather overpants....very comfortable.
