I haven't tried them, but I don't see why they wouldn't work. IMHO, a good pair of denim's will do just as well. I usually wear denim's and then leather chaps if its cold, or a good set of ski pants if its really cold. There are much better items out there than either of those if you are looking for some protection. It all depends on what you want.....

I know of a lot of riders that use the 'firehose' pants and like them. They do offer a tiny bit -very tiny bit -of protection against abrasion, and MIGHT be marginally better than normal jeans.IMHO, neither offer any real protection. I think, as a minimum, the kevlar reinforced riding jeans should be worn. I have those and also a few pairs of Cortech riding pants. They are padded and kelvar reinforced. They also have hidden zippers so that once I get to where I'm going, they easily convert to shorts. I've seen what regular jeans look like after a lowside and it's not pretty. No one plans on going down, but "road rash" should really be called what it is- Abrasive Grinding away of your Flesh-and it's painful.
