Warmth, comfort AND style...well...maybe NOT syle. But cheap enough!!

I suspect there is a reason they are just 20.00. And it looks like they provide no padding at the knees and hips in the event of a get off.

Motorcycle clothing should provide warmth in the winter and protection in the event of a crash. just warmth is not adequate. I have found that the best way to stay warm is with electric jacket and glove liners that heat up and worn under protective jackets and such. There are also some electric pant liners available if you get really cold.

Evidently the Swedes didn't like them either, or they wouldn't have shipped them to the U.S. as surplus

I got a pair of tourmaster flex pants last week. i don't like a few of the zippers on the pant legs but I'm going to see how they work for me and if they are not what I like i'll invest in some klim over pants next summer. right now I'm upgrading some of my riding gear and replacing other gear because its worn out, like my boots. I just replaced my worn out boots with alpinestar overland Gore-Tex boots, new shoei quest helmet, and new klim latitude masano jacket. I already have an electric jacket liner and electric gloves

I have a "set" of pants & jacket that I bought a couple years ago and a new set I haven't work yet ... that I prefer over the OD green of military surplus for riding, HOWEVER... those might make bang-up trousers for cold mornings in the duck blind.. it appears they're not waterproof... If it were really cold I'd wear them... my legs generally don't get cold. it is my hands that suffer... still looking for a pair of gloves I can wear down to 10 degrees or so, without plugging them in, that will keep my fingers from feeling like they're going to fall off...
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

I've got a really nice coat that's water repellant. It comes with a vest that's down filled with long-sleeves.
I also have Ski Bibs with a few pockets near the top.

I'm good to around +10*F in a T-Shirt and -17*F (so far) with a sweatshirt.
My gloves are layered for the below 0*F days. Socks the same, layered.

Believe it or not, I have yet to need my battery heated gloves.
I prefer regular shoes, boots don't fit the shifter peg.
