Overpants - what a good idea! I was thinking chaps because I can take them off when I arrive at my destination. I didn't know about "overpants". I'll definitely look into that.

A pair of overpants that will cover your behind as well as your legs, and includes armor for the knees and hips (two common points of impact).
This is true with Asian or European Union made leather but American, Mexican and Guatamellan leather is usually measured in ounces of weight. Canada, Central and South America may use ounces or mm sometimes both. (most motorcycle leather is rated the European way but most horse stuff still uses ounces)you want at least 1.1mm thickness
That got your legs and front side covered, but what about your fanny? Damn near every time I've come off the bike, I hit or slide on my arse.....Thistleback wrote:Went shopping yesterday on my first day out with my first bike. The local power sports shop had 50% off Fieldsheer that day, and I found some Fieldsheer Marlyn chaps that fit really nice. Tried on overpants, but they didn't have any cut for women. The unisex fit didn't work, and I hated the way they felt. Happy with the chaps though!
Bullet proof knickers????? What will they think of next??Johnj wrote:Have you ever heard of kevlar underwear?
