Heavy duty pants designed for tree climbing. Sounds like ideal wear for casual trips on the bike, yes? No substitute for specialized protective gear of course, but a lot better than regular jeans. Their purposeful construction for tree climbing also applies well to riding, as you can throw your leg over and settle in, enjoying the gusseted crotch and resultant freedom of movement. Made of strong, pre-washed 12oz. canvas and featuring a double-layered panel from the knee to mid-thigh, with hook & loop closed access for kneepads (available separately), these exceptionally well-made pants are both comfortable and durable. (Same TF3 knee pads as your Roadcrafter or Darien in a special bag that is unique to these pants.) Chestnut Only. Sale: Discontinued color, limited sizes and quantities available.
