    Best pants... ever!

    I know it is very subjective... depending on fit and need... but I just received a pair of BMW Cover Pants. WOW! Nice quality, water proof, easy on over anything you would want to wear underneath... zippers up and down in a snap!

    They are bar none... the best pants for those who are looking for waterproof, mid/low-temp coverage...

    I own a pair of all weather BMW Comfort Shell Pants, Ralley Pants, FT, etc... but just soooo impressed with the Cover Pants and wanted to share my experiences.

    Best ever? I don't know about that, but they are very nice pants with that typical BMW quality. I have a pair and regret that I have to sell them. I just bought a nearly new pair used and they don't fit.

    Santiago Pants

    For me I love my Santiago pants. I know the seperate liners is a pain sometimes but I love that they wear like jeans, They are very cool even on the RT. If I think it might rain I just put the liners in at the start of the day. I've only been caught out once or twice.

    They are size large. You can have them for what I paid: $150 shipped ConUS.

    Okay VERY true... "best ever" is definitely stretching it... but I was thoroughly impressed with the design and recommend the Cover Pants for any traveling (except for very high heat due to lack of significant breathability). The only other negative is lack of hip armor... which could take it down a notch But just wanted to share the recommendation.

    I do love my Comfortshell jacket and pants... perfect in theoretical design... but would probably grab the Cover Pants for 99% of everyday riding due to versatility. Since armor is only as good if you use it, I think that usability factor took me over the top on these pants.

    Thanks.
