    Need Advise

    I would like to buy a pair of Mesh pants. Problem----- I am 5ft 8inches tall. I have a large gut. Waist is about 46. Is there a company that can service a large body like mine?

    I was surprised that BikeBandit can get the JoeRocket 2.0 riding pants in just about any size you could want. It may take a week longer if not in stock but, ... Prices are not too bad, as well.

    Cycleport (Motoport) makes riding custom fitted kevlar pants and riding jackets. Good quality but a little pricey. Check them out at http://www.motoport.com/Home

    I bought a pair of Olympia pants that fit me in the waist, but were too long. I found a tailor that not only shortened them, but he kept the Velcro tabs and zipper perfectly functioning.

    You might have the same situation where in order to get the waist to fit, you're going to end up with pants too long. It may cost you an extra 40 bucks or so assuming you can find a good tailor in your area, but you'll end up with a pant that fits you great.
    Luck favors those who are prepared.

    Cycleport makes Air Mesh pants and jackets that can zip together if you want the style and protection of a one piece suit. They will also sell their pants separately and will custom build it to fit. They offer great protection being all Kevlar with CE certified armor inserted in key places of the pants and jacket. They are very cool letting in a lot of air yet they offer superb protection.

    For cold weather riding you can buy inserts that button and zipper into place. They offer not only warmth but serve as your rain suit as well. However if your basic pants or jacket gets wet, they don't absorb water so they dry off in the wind.

    Here's a link to the pants: http://www.motoport.com/_product_106...sh_Kevlar_Pant

    I did a low side on a Colorado gravel road at 30 mph wearing Cycleport mesh riding gear and I was fine. There were such minor scraps on the pants that people only notice IF I point them out to them.
