Riding pants OPINIONS?
I generally ride pretty redneck. Helmet, chest protector, MX gloves, cowboy boots, jeans, and t-shirt. Recently picked up a couple of clearance MX jerseys and think I will really like them. I also bought a pair of MX pants. Couple issues with them and have to return.
First, they only sold by one size ( 32 or 34 or 36 etc) figuring it was waist I chose my needed 34 waist size. The waist was perfect, but at 6'3" they were about 6 inches above my ankle. They were the inside boot style so riding shoes or cowboy boots would have been hilarious.
Second, they were very stiff and sounded like I would start a fire walking around. Corduroy jeans were laughing at me.
So, are they worth trying another pair? Really beneficial over jeans? If I buy another pair I planned on doing the over boot style this time. Still concerned of ending up with a fitted waist and way too short. Generally buy jeans in a 34 waist 36 length.
