Many factors are involved when exploring the overabundance of riding apparel options: comfort, style, protection, and fit. For long trips, you want something that's inter-changeable so when trekking during a dry and sunny day you're not drenched in sweat because your heavy pants and jacket won't breathe. You also don't want a setup that mimics a windbreaker. You need something versatile for whatever conditions you face.
We searched high and low for a stylish, inexpensive, all-weather riding pants and found what we needed in the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 riding pants.....
Joe Rocket has a large sportbike influence, but also carries items that are perfect for touring the country. At the end of the day, being comfortable is what's important. The Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pant is a great touring pant that features a rugged design made from 100 waterproof Hitena twill nylon with melt-resistant material on the lower legs. Many apparel manufacturers claim '100 percent waterproof' but never really stand up to the challenge. That is not the case with Joe Rocket's Ballistic 7.0 riders pants.
One could take a stroll through a car wash and not worry about his previous iPhone being damaged. The Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants is available in black and features height-adjustable CE-rated kneepads for both shorter and taller inseams, a removable waterproof liner. The two-way leg zippers make it easy for pulling over large boots, too.
The Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 definitely exceeded my expectations. When ordering, maybe try the next size up since mine fit a little snug in the groin area.
