I just got my second pair of Motorpool riding pants from Ugly Bros USA ($329) and here is my brief review of it so far:
Comfort: This is the best aspect of this pants. The pants has elastic shirring knee & waist-lower back panels (as seen in pic), which for one, prevents your butt crack showing while you ride, and two, it just makes your leg movement feel much natural. I don’t hesitate to say that this is the most comfortable pair of pants I own.
Safety: Well this obviously isn’t the most safe or the most technical motorcycle pants, and I don’t think you should be wearing this if that’s your first concern. However; the pants has CE pad inserts on the hips, as well as on the knees. Best part about the knee inserts is that you can remove it from the outside, without taking your pants off.
Value: Yea, this is pretty damn expensive. In fact, this is probably the most expensive pair of pants I own. This will set you back $320 and that’s really not affordable by any measure. So value? That’s very subjective so I’ll leave that up to you.
Fit/Style: Style is great. There aren’t that many motorcycle pants that has good casual style that you can use it as a everyday pants, which is what I do. Fit? That’s another story. Motorpool is probably the tightest pair of jeans I own but doesn’t feel that way because of its elastic fabric. I know other models are slimmer, so if you have thick log like legs like I do, anything other than this model won’t really fit you too well.
So that’s my 5mins review of the pants. Also, @townmoto has the best photos of these pants, so you might get a better idea of what they look like and how they will fit.
Disclosure: Fortunately, I didn’t have to pay for my pants; however, my review is fully independent and is not externally influenced
