Thumbs up Aerostitch Fleece Pants

I don't like wearing jeans under my riding pants, they bunch up and it's just not comfortable for me. I'm fortunate that I can keep a pair of jeans at work and change when I get here, or in the summer just wear shorts under my pants. That leaves the winter... Riding in my boxers and riding pants gets dam* cold and sweating my but off all day in longjohns is no fun either.

The answer of course is Aerostitch's TL Tec Fleece Pants ! I ordered a pair the other day and have been wearing them for a week or so and feel confident saying they work durn well! there's three options to choose from ranging in price from $77 for the "cool" weather version I got to the "cold" version for $87 to the "Gad Dam*, you riding in this sh*T???" version for $97. Unfortunatly the catalog doesn't explain this, the only way to differentiate the three is color and price, but it's fairly obvious.

The pants will of course work with any riding pants, probably jeans too if they're baggy and as with all Aerostitch products are sized right for us 'Muricans, meaning XXL fits me, not some 190lb Asian. They have a full length zip down each side and a hook and loop + zipper in the front, as well as a wallet pocket in the back. I wear them over my boxers as pants, the bottom is elastic and is meant to be worn over boots, then with you riding pants over them.

They're nice and soft and stretchy and warm as toast in the upper 30*s and low 40*s I've worn them in so far and are basically invisible in that you don't really know you're wearing them, your legs just aren't cold. Workmanship appears to be top notch and they're made right here in the USA and guarenteed by Aerostitch

In combination with the fleece jacket liner, also available in three temp. ranges they so far have kept me warm, dry and comfy in temps ranging from low 30*s to mid 50*s and drizzle to downpour, Highly recommended if you want to be warm this winter.

I feel like I'm becoming a shill for these guys but honestly all their stuff I've tried has been the best fitting and most usefull gear I've owned, well worth the money.

Always good to hear about solid cold-weather riding gear. So, thanks for that. And I concur on the quality of Aerostitch merchandise. I've bought a few things from them over the past couple of years (the big ass messenger back for instance) and been thoroughly impressed with the quality and functionality of the items.

You still haven't noticed your wallet is missing? Oh, and I have the deed to your cabin too.

First off my wallet has no money in it and my wives have already maxed out the credit card.

Second, after a few visits to the cabin under my wives' tutelage and you'll be begging me to take it back rather than having to chop even MORE firewood, replace the decks, paint, dig a new outhouse....... Oh and don't forget you need to buy a snowmobile so you can even get to it.
