your not talking about full leathers right??? i wanted to become a ninja and but a set of all black full racing leathers but it kinda felt like i was trying on a leotard..... not the most comfortable thing to stand in and if i sat i think my arse woulda split um....
Sounds like they just did not fit you properly. A good set of "custom fitted" leathers will feel like a second layer of skin and not be bothersome in anyway.
But, yeah, I was not talking about full leaters, but just leather pants or the armored Cordura type riding pants. Chaps are for those that think the skin on their ass won't hurt when it is shaved off by concrete. (Trust me, the one place you really do not want to lose any skin is off your butt)
Although they sell well, those "Kevlar" jeans are really not worth the money. They usualy have no armor, and what Kevlar they do use is in very specific parts of the pants. (knees, hips and ass) and does not cover the entire leg or the ever important crotch.
I have a pair of leather pants I had made for me around 30 years ago, they still look great..even after a few get-offs. The sad part is as of this year, they no longer fit me, so looks like I am in the market again for some. I do own a pair of Fieldsheer Titanium Air Mesh pants...which is as close as anyone can come to feeling like they are naked in hot weather ...without risking protection.
I highly reccomend Bates Leather for custom made leather pants or jackets:
(They made the leathers Arnold wore in the Terminator movies)
