Zip on overtrousers?

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by Gavin Edwards, Jul 18, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know of a manufacturer who makes overtrousers which zip on over
    your everyday clothes - preferably with some form of protection included?

    I know that the Triumph clothing range includes a one piece suit that zips
    on in a few seconds - but I don't want a one piece. Is there anyone out
    there making this kind of kit?

    Horse Riders have several such items available, but they wouldn't be
    waterproof enough to use on a bike.

    Any suggestions?

    I got mine recentle, great stuff!
    Full protection included, and zip-out liners for when it's too warm!
    Zip-open vents if it's too warm with the liners out. Fully waterproof too!

    My Hein Gericke stuff is absolutly brilliant, some items were reduced by up
    to 50% last time I was there.

    I keep seeing a chap at work trying to get one of those Triumph thingies on
    over his business suit. More like a (good) few minutes than a few seconds.
    Plenty of contorsions involved. Fun to watch!

    Do you have an objection to a one piece suit other than the difficulty
    of getting in and out of it? My Aerostich Roadcrafter 1-piece does what
    it says on the tin. At most it takes 15 seconds to put it on or take it
    off.

  6. It's probably too small.

  7. OK folks - thanks - Heine Gericke offer a solution - but what is the name
    of the pants? I have visited their site and cannot tell which are the ones
    with the full length zips.

    really? Last time I was looking for something like this, I asked in
    their branch in Ilford, and they said that none of the trousers they
    had were intended to wear over over clothes. I bought a pair which can
    just about be worn over jeans, if the removable lining is taken out,
    but you couldn't wear it over a business suit, as it'd crease the
    trousers badly.

  9. I used a pair of Chalk's off-road trousers, which featured full-length
    zips down the outside of each leg, in my green-laning days, and which
    managed to keep me dry through various river crossings and welsh bogs
    [1] and just about everything the weather could throw at me. They
    weren't that expensive either, IIRC. You could visit a Moto-X centre
    and see what they have to offer. Evolution may have decreed that such
    products now feature pockets for protectors.
