After years of wearing regular jeans or Carhartt's on the bike, I'm going to get a pair of biking specific pants. Living in Labrador, I have to order something online, which makes it a little harder to decide, as I don't get to see them before buying, nevermind actually trying them on. I'm a little torn between a pair of adv style pants, or denim. My biking every year usually consists of a very limited amount of commuting, (during which I'll wear my regualr work cloths anyway), a few day long rides, one or two over-nighters, and one multi-day trip. I like the idea of having biking jeans, and think I might be more likely to wear them. But spending that much on a pair of jeans makes me wonder if I shouldn't get something that offers better weather protection. Nothing worse than having to put on the rain pants for a light shower, or worse, getting soaked because it sprinkled for 5 minutes. Here are two of the pairs I'm considering https://fortnine.ca/en/trilobite-parado-jeans https://fortnine.ca/en/alpinestars-andes-v2-drystar-pants One thing I don't like about the Alpinestars is that the hip armour is sold seperately, and they don't have rear pockets. I've also have the Scorpion Coverts in my shopping cart for a few days now, but I'm hesitant to spend that much for a pair of pants that comes with zero armour. https://fortnine.ca/en/scorpion-covert-jeans Anyone have experience with these or something else similar? I was trying to keep the price below $200CAN, but two of these are $300+ tax, and that is my absolute limit I'm willing to spend.
