Lizardrider Thanks guys.

Panalp....the Carhart double front is my usual pant of choice! I wasn't wearing them when I went crashed but I doubt they would have helped much. The denim on my jeans ripped completely along with my boxers underneath....and my skin under that!

Buildit I'm 6'5" 280lbs, get the KLIM Dakar pants. I love mine because they have pockets, hip and knee protection and came in KTM orange amongst other colors.

Glasser You might check out Joe Rocket. Not state of the art but they have extended sizes, come with removeable armour, and are reasonably priced.

SLO-KLR Theese would be better protection and some air flow.

SLO-KLR These come in your size.

planalp I hear you. They're not textile riding pants, but I've been using these for years. They might not offer protection equaling more advanced pants, but they're better than nothing.

I have a 34" inseam and wear a 46 waist (6'4"/275) so they're big enough to wear over my 44 jeans. The legs are plenty long enough that they stay at my ankles even when seated. When standing, they're not overly long to where you're stepping on them/dragging them and both my riding and work boots will slip through the legs so I can put them on right over my boots.

You don't have to get the standard Carhartt brown color: mine are dark gray.

Just a thought if you don't find anything else. Good luck with your search. It sucks trying to find "King Size" riding gear.

biggy sizing....who's got em?

I have been looking for some textile riding pants but can't seem to find what I am looking for. I am tall at 6'5" and have about a 42" waist. I want some 'dual sport' riding pants. Something with some minimum protection in case of a fall but also something that doesn't ride up to mid-shin when sitting on my ride. My inseam is 36" and I have found that all pants I have found are no where near that and I look like I am ready for the next flood with them on!

Any taller riders have any input?

I mostly ride gravel forestry roads and single track. I am not so concerned about highway travel as I just use the hwy to get to my preferred route.

I was thrown off my beloved KLR last weekend and down a fairly steep slope.....ripped the backside off my jeans and underwear and suffered a nasty 'gash' to my backside. Thus my motivation for a little more protection. It was a beatiful week and day today and since I can't sit on my bike without pulling the nasty scabs apart I figured it was time to find a solution!

thanks in advance!
