In terms of affordable riding gear that claims the same materials as their higher dollar counterparts I'd have to put this pair of riding pants up there as the best deal currently running.
Extreemgear based in Baltimore Maryland has been in business for 6 years specializing in the manufacture of both leather and textile motorcycle gear and accessories. Everything I could find to read on them and these pants hollas' worthy. Including every single review I could find. Seems like a no brainer at $75. One of the most common claims is about their quality, substantial feel which is commonly the biggest complaint about lower priced gear, that it doesn't feel substantial. With that and the detail given to the design itself I'm thinking these pants might be my next pants. Let us know what you think if you pick a pair up.
