Leather Motorcycle Pants

Humans have been wearing leather for as long as history has been recorded, and it’s not hard to see why. Leather is strong, durable, and surprisingly malleable despite its durability. This makes it a motorcycle rider’s dream, and it didn’t take long for our motorcycle manufacturing forebears to realize leather would be the perfect material to protect their riders. Leather motorcycle pants have since become a common choice for riders around the world. Here at Dennis Kirk, we can see that riding and leather pants are a perfect match. That’s why we’ve taken the time to put together a great selection of leather motorcycle pants.

When buying leather motorcycle pants, there are several different traits to consider pertaining to their protective attributes. The first and most obvious is the addition of any shin or knee protectors! These pads definitely make the pants safer, but they also add bulk. Whether or not you consider this worthwhile will depend on your riding style and how important safety features are for you.

It’s also important to keep in mind how thick the leather is. Leather thickness is typically gauged in millimeters and, generally speaking, the thicker the leather, the more durable it will be. We say generally because the way that the leather has been treated and processed obviously has an impact on its durability.

We’ve covered the main attributes to consider when determining safety, but you don’t just want to be safe, you want to be comfortable! Features like stretch panels that improve airflow and mobility will be greatly appreciated, especially on a hot, sunny day.

These are just some points to consider as you choose your pants. We wish that we could just point at one pair and say “Here are the best leather motorcycle pants on the market. They also happen to be incredibly cheap.” Unfortunately, it’s just not that simple. We can’t tell you which pair is best, that’s a choice that you’ll have to make yourself. Good luck!
