Cold Weather Gear/Over Pants

Looking for a good pair of "over pants" to wear now that the weather is getting colder. Looking for something that I can pull on easily over jeans/dress pants for those early morning rides to work.

Thanks

Brent

I use insulated overalls. Warm as hell. Probably not what you are looking for, but just throwing it out there. Very easy to get on and off w/zippered sides.

I see many people wearing the Over suits, Mostly BMW riders as they seem to ride no matter what the weather.




The BMW CoverAll one-piece makes it easy to ride your motorcycle to the office, into town or anywhere the you need to show up in"normal" (business) wear. Light, but designed for safety, it's waterproof protection against inclement weather. Perfect for a daily commute from home to work are because it can be donned and removed is fully easily.
The BMW CoverAll Suit is comfortable! It's wide-fitting, not tailored for a body-hugging fit, belted with Velcro at jacket waistline and collar and closures for width adjustment. Enables a rider to don the suit over normal clothing, even a complete business suit. Features side zippers for adjusting the fit and leather inserts at closures and straps to ensure wear comfort and convenience. Front zipper and two side zippers from hip to cuff make the suit easy to put on. The waist adjustable by straps at the sides. Double-thickness pant seat protects the entry zone as the wearer dons the suit

Sizes, Colors
Unisex Sizes: XS-XXXL BMW - specific size chart Available Colors: Black

Material:
3-layer laminate of Cordura«500, climate membrane and calendar-coated liner.
Inside pockets mesh lining.
Protectors:
Very light SC protectors made of visco-elastic foam material at shoulders, elbows, hips and
knees (adjustable to 2 height settings)
Protectors have very good impact-absorbing properties, certified to DIN 1621.
NP ProAir back protector can be retrofitted to back pocket.
Protector pockets are welded to the fabric, not stitched.
Visibility:
3M« reflective prints on shoulders and back.


Other Co's also make them, like this First Gear:





New for Fall 2010 another smart product from FirstGear providing value to the rider who wants the benefit of a one-piece riding suit without having to make the $1000+ investment required by some other brands. The Expedition Suit is a 1-piece waterproof breathable oversuit meant to keep you comfortable in all hardcore riding conditions or if you are commuting to work. Utilizing many of the technical features of the TPG line of products, the Expedition is a great option at a reasonable price for the avid rider who likes the ease of in and out and the added flexibility of a 1-piece oversuit.
EXPEDITION SIZING NOTES: The Expedition Suit is meant to be an oversuit with room for layers to be added as temperatures dip. Use your jacket size for reference when deciding. The Knee Armor is adjustable 3-4 inches up and down and 2-3 inches left to right. For reference the Large Expedition Suit fits someone who is anywhere from 5'9" - 6'3" depending on their weight due to the adjustability in height. In the summer months, the suit will fit much more loosely than the winter due to extra room for base layers.

Another cheap effective option is nylon snow bibs. They slide on easy, are made for cold weather and wearing something under it, and you can roll them up small when its warmer on the ride home. I had a nice pair from Bass Pro Shop, they were their own brand but $70 bucks. Took them to my neighbor who sewed some leather on the inside of the leg to keep the nylon from melting on the pipe. Target and other big box stores may have some even cheaper.

The CARHARTTS are decent, a little cumbersome but do the job. I have a set of my MARINE CORPS gortex top & bottoms. Say on a dry winters day APPRX. 20 deg., 1st layer is UNDER ARMOR; top/bottom, 2nd insulated jeans, 3rd gortex bottom or heated gear under the insulated jeans.

I wear an insulated leather jacket and lined leather overpants and heated textile gloves. I've ridden for 3 hours in the high 30s with this setup and only a windvest shield.

Joe Rocket makes a nice set of over pants that includes a removable liner. Nice high side zippers and waterproof. I wear them over suit pants all the time. With the removable liner they are good for many different temps. Got mine from Cycle Gear for $99.

That Aerostich stuff is really nice stuff, well crafted. If I lived in a different climate I would have some.
