Size Chart for the Men's Hi-Viz Reversible Motorcycle Chaps
HOW TO DETERMINE SIZE. Please measure the thickest part of your thigh (circumference around your thigh at the thickest part) using a cloth tape measure. Be sure to take this measurement with your jeans ON.
Comment: The fit on theses chaps matched my leather chaps and easy to get on and off. The only issue I had was that all of the belt-loop buttons popped off the first time I used them. I was able to retrieve most of the buttons and re-attached them with good thread. Not sure if this is an isolated issue but I wanted to share the only issue I had with these nice chaps.
Detour Reversible Textile Chaps Review
Comment: I really like these. They are really sturdy and light weight. The only issue I have with these is you have to have a belt. I'm a lady rider and i don't always wear a belt. If you have these in your saddle bag and need to put these on...better have a belt with them as well. Other than that I love them.
Comment: They fit me well and they definitely show up at night. You can't tell with the black-side out that they have that reflective fabric on the other side.
Comment: LIGHT WEIGHT DID NOT RESTRICT MOVEMENT
SIZE INSTRUCTIONS RIGHT ON
Comment: 2 in 1 now that is a cool deal! With the temps getting much cooler, especially in the mornings i need a bit more warmth on my legs. I ordered a small & they fit perfect the length was a bit long, fold it over & you got the orange/yellow/ black cuff - depeding which side you choose to wear. The zipper pockets are just enough room for some cash, keys. Plus it comes w/ 2 D rings nice to have. Used it going up to Santa Barbra from L.A. sure felt good & lady's dig them.
These chaps are completely windproof. But they are only water resistant. They will keep you dry through heavy mist or road spray after a rain, they might even keep you dry through light rain, for a while. But they will not keep you dry if you ride in steady rain.
I plan on wearing these chaps over my Rev'It Tornado Trousers when I'm in high traffic urban travel conditions. I've measured my thighs with the Rev'It trousers on (26-inches) but, are these chaps going to fit over my Tornado Trousers knee pads (measure 25-inches) in a sport riding position?
As we are now into the colder riding season here in Northern Virginia and West Virginia I am looking for chaps that will help keep me a bit warmer through the cold of the coming months; any experiences how these meet the cold and wind chills?
These 8552 Chaps Leggings are made from an abrasion resistant nylon and come
in two colors, Hi-Viz Orange and Hi-Viz Yellow. They are available in sizes S
thru 3XL and feature a combination snap and zippered closure. You will notice
that the closure has an inner and outer row of snaps. That is because the
leggings are reversible. Remember to switch legs when reversing your leggings to
make sure the closure flap will be facing in the right direction to keep the
wind out. The Hi-Viz side features reflective panels that match perfectly with
the 8202 Mil-Spec style vest. Check out the listing to see the vest video. The
belt flaps feature two buttons and can be used to make the chaps a little longer
by using just the top button. There are accordion style stretch-panels on the
inside of the leg that also help add to the versatile fit. The only downside to
a textile chap versus a leather chap is that the hem at the bottom has to be
stitched so you can't adjust the length the way you can with leather. The major
bonus, though, is that the textile chaps are much lighter weight and pack
smaller, making them easier to fit into a saddlebag. The other feature I find
handy is this metal D-ring hanging off of the black side of the chap. It's
perfect for holding onto your keys when you are off the bike.
