Winter Pants

When riding a motorcycle in the winter, manufacturers are faced with a true design challenge in making Winter Pants. These pants must be comfortable, warm, safe, and, most of all, waterproof. Nonetheless, manufacturers have been able produce a wide range of Winter Motorcycle Pants that are able to meet the tough needs of winter touring, adventure, and sport-touring riders.

A sign of good Waterproof Pants is whether they are waterproof and, if they are, what sort of a waterproof membrane they use. Since the winter is among the wettest times of the year, it’s important that your pants can keep you dry, since this will go a long way in making sure you stay comfortable. Though most waterproof pants will do well in keeping the water off of you, Gore-Tex Pants are the best choice if you want to make sure your legs don’t get wet. An additional feature to keep in mind when looking at Winter Motorcycle Pants is if the zippers are waterproof and whether the waterproof liner is removable, since this will also allow you to use your pants during hotter weather as well.

Winter Motorcycle Trousers offer a wide variety of safety features either in the pants themselves or available for additional purchase. All of these pants come with CE level knee protectors and pockets for additional hip protectors, though these are also sometimes included.

Lastly, it’s also important to consider what comfort features the pants come with. For example, can you adjust the waist and legs to better fit your form? This will help with ensuring the pants fit better and, as a result, fit more comfortably for long days in the saddle.
