Recommendations for riding pants


Recommended Posts

I was looking into some riding pants like Rev'it or Spidi, but am not sure if I should go for the waterproof ones that have an inner waterproof lining.
On one hand, it's humid here, on the other hand, it rains so often.
Not really keen on jeans as I would prefer to pull the pants over my shorts if possible.

Anyone with any experience with mesh or waterproof pants?

Allow me to share my limited experience... Anything that is waterproof... WILL BE HOT... even "top of the line" breathable Gore-Tex. I use them for rain gear (outermost layer). Mesh is cool.

Great, thanks for your advice. Will get a pair of jeans too I guess.

Mesh is cool...er... SG is afterall hot & humid. Have got 2 jackets, one mesh and the other '3D mesh'. 3D is definitely cooler. For 'pants', i don't want the hassle of dealing with another piece of clothing so have opted for chinos and jeans. It's rather comfortable if you are milling about in air-conditioned environment (e.g. office, shopping mall).

Hope this helps!

Thanks Isaac! 
Are your jeans the fortified ones with protectors in them? Or just casual.. retail/uniqlo brand kind?

I think I may get mesh pants then.. would rather go for airy and pull over a raincoat if it rains.

I use normal jeans/pants with just a waterproof outer raincoat if it's raining!

Dedicated riding pants are too bulky for day to day riding if you ask me.

If going for a spirited ride with friends, then of course dedicated/armoured riding pants would be best! Plenty of options available from Motorworld, Regina, Racing World, etc.

You can check out some of Racing World's promos here:
