Overpaints

Does anyone know if BMW has over pants in their apparel line? I wear the Atlantis jacket and pants but when it starts gets above 80 I would like to have a quality pair of over pants to wear over shorts, or even a pair of jeans, along with a Airflow Jacket. I prefer leather but like everything in life that's not written in stone. Any suggestions?

They have the Airflow Three pants now. Could be worn over shorts and is mesh vented like your jacket.

I have been using the Firstgear HT Air overpants for a couple years and even in hot weather they provide protection and are probably cooler than jeans. I have worn over shorts, jeans and dress slacks and as they have a liner you are even good going into known rain. Easy on and off too! Not Leather but give them a look! MUCH lower cost than any leather or a BMW version.

I wear the airflow with and without shorts. It is comfortqble and does permit free flow of air. It can be quite cooling in very hot temps. The airflow jacket with a damp t-shirt is amazingly cool also.

Smile Over or not.

After many years of looking, I finally fount the perfect pants and they are made in the USA (California is still part of the US, right?) They are the Cycleport stretch mesh Kevlar. 100% waterproof. Easy on, easy off. I wear them both over pants or shorts, or over Underamor Heat Gear in the Summer. They are cool in summer, warm in winter. Wayne will make them the way you want them in a couple of days. They have a removable waterproof, windproof liner that will take you down to 20 degrees. I've never used the liner as I live in Florida and we don't allow cold weather here! I've worn them in heat and rain and am still dry. They breath unbelievably and the stretch Kevlar allows for big meals. They have a stretch, high waist that keeps water out and the fly zipper runs diagonally from waist to right ankle for easy off and no leaking in the crotch. These are truely one of a kind. The only thing I would add is an extra smaller pocket on the leg for a cell phones or what ever. You won't regret these pants. I loved them so much I bought a jacket too!
By the way, I have a pair of Fieldsheer and Olympia motorcycle pants and these are 100X better. They have a money back satisfaction guarantee. And if you read about Kevlar on their site, you'll never wear Cordura again! WWW.Motoport.com
