Especially hard to find here in Florida. It's so hot in the summer.

I wear my jeans with just my leather chaps, as far as my lower half. My problem is that I'm so short and I wear a size zero, so its hard for me to find a comfortable pair of good riding pants that fit. But being that I crash my dirt bike a lot, I would hate to feel what its like to hit the asphalt not wearing padding.

Leather is warm and wind resistant as well, but in rain can stain and need mink oil after. I have ridden myself for forty years or better. I do like the corduroy type with the plastic inserts so they protect your joints. I have a rain suit as we all do, but are cumbersome over my clothing.

For multi-day trips, or long rides, I tend to wear jeans and textile pants with mesh on the inner thighs and padding in the knees over them for abrasion protection. For shorter rides, I tend to wear my Kevlar jeans, not usually with the knee pads, but sometimes I leave them in (although rarely). But I'm typically AGATT.

Where I see a challenge is in finding good leather riding pants that will fit my shorter and wider lower half especially my larger calves. I need to try gear on before buying, and most local shops don't carry regular leather riding pants; most only carry sportbike leathers which don't fit me. I hate having to order online, only to find it doesn't fit and have to pay to return the items. And also, I've read the most recent article on WRN called New Women's Motorcycling Gear Collection Debuts but those leather pants featured are way out of my price range at this time at $480 but exactly the style I'm looking for. So I may opt to try the leather and textile pants instead.
