The Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 Pants are a good choice for an all around street riding pants. The combination of a the waterproof liner and the full textile shell make this pant perfect for cool to warm weather riding. The shell of the Ballistic pant is an abrasion resistant nylon which helps keep the wind off your legs and provides good protection in the event of a crash. Pair that with the CE approved knee armor and the foam hip pads and you have a good all around set of motorcycle pants at a pretty good price. Plus the CE knee armor in the Ballistic 7 pants is height adjustable. There are 2 pockets for the armor, so you can most likely get the right position.
One feature we really like is the long side zippers, which allow you to remove the pants even with your boots on. So if you are going to be using the Ballistic pants as overpants, just remember to read the sizing guide and go up a size from your normal motorcycle pant size. Just like most motorcycle pants, the ballistic pants feature a short ( about 8 inch ) zipper for connection to a Joe Rocket jacket. Plus, if you dont have that brand of jacket, you can use the mating half of the zipper (included with the pants) and visit a tailor to install the zipper in the jacket you own. Buy these with the Ballistic Jacket and Ballistic Boots from Joe Rocket and you will have a nice riding suit.

JR Ballistic 7 pants - Knucklebuster TN
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Well made for the price
Cons: Way too long for me had to return them
I only have a 28 inseam, and these pants had to be about 10 too long, I have problems with this all the time because I have a 48 waist, they did fit the waist properly. I guess I will have my pants custom made, I have a mesh suit that was custom made.
