Look for an inexpensive pair of overpants

Hello all,

Can someone recommend a good cheap pair of overpants? I want something that will hold knee armor and zip at least 3/4 up the leg so I can quickly/easily throw them on and of over jeans without removing boots. I have seen some very nice big name brands but they're all $250+. That's just not in the budget.

Any ideas?

I've mentioned them earlier this week but motorcyclegear.com has awesome deals. I have a great pair of Joe Rocket over pants that retailed for about 300, got them for 115. I would look around on that site.

I've got these:
Tour Master Elite II Nomex Rain Pants - Street Bike - Motorcycle Superstore

They keep the rain and wind out very well (tested in PNW downpour). Only downside is they don't breath, so if you wear them all day, they can get clammy. But for the price...can't complain much. The suspenders and boot loops is a bonus too

My classified(s):

Care to give a thorough review? Material good? Good for chilly temps and hot temps? Hows the waist clasp holding (snap ok, or is it a pita).

I really want these but would love your full take on them.

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

I have something similar to those now. I should have been a bit more specific in the op but I need warmth also.

Hey I just noticed your reply. The pants are awesome!!! Material is great. Fit is perfect to size. Just check out joe rockets sizing chart. Very comfortable pants. Hottest I rode in was 75 degrees and I did not need the zippered panel open. (that light grey section completely unzips, from leg, to back of ass, to leg). So I'm willing to bet you could ride these in very warm temps

Great pants. One day I was riding, it got cooler, maybe around 48-52 degrees F. I did not have the waterproof liner in which I'm sure helps with wind, but I did get a tad chilly. Not too bad, but enough to notice it.

When I get some more riding in I'd be glad to tell you more. But it seems like I'm going to be using these pants for the warmer to hotter weather. Although it could be used in the colder weather. I personally have the joe rocket ballistic pants as well. And those things ROCK the cold/ windy weather. So warm.
