So I'm doing the right thing and spending a bit on my gear before I get my bike so that I dont just save up enough for the bike and then buy a crap helmet and leave it at that. With pants though, I'm a bit torn between getting some draggin jeans or some dririder type pants. Obvioulsy the jeans aren't waterproof and probably don't offer as much protection but are much more practical when you arrive. Dririder stuff is pretty much the opposite, more protection but you look like a tosser swish swashing around in bike pants when you get wherever you get. My question is, does anyone know if there are like slip over kevlar pants that you would wear normal jeans / pants underneat and all the pants do is provide protection and water resistance?
