Textile pants

Does anyone know if they make cordura or some form of textile pants with a velcro base for knee sliders? I've been looking for a while and can't seem to find anything.

Just my opinion and thoughts here, but on my textile pants if you were to velcro knee sliders on it ,they would just rotate out of the way when touched to pavement because the pants are not fitted or made that tight! Now maybe mine are too big.... hmm..

Yeah, the thought had crossed my mind. They would have to be pretty tight fitting. I thought it might be a long shot. Oh well. I'll keep looking around. Thanks.

I have a pair made by Firstgear that fit the bill. I was just on their site and newegg.com though and it looks like they stopped making them last year. I have a seldom-used pair. What size are you?

My waist is about a 29 or 30, inseam is about 30, but I prefer a 32 for riding pants so they actually reach my ankles.

That might be a little on the large side for me. Thanks though.

If you can just find a pair of pants that fit you snug you can purchase the velcro bases at many different places and then sew them on. Easy peasy, I didn't just say that.

If you're gonna be going fast enough to drag a knee, seems like leather would be better. I've got leather for that and textile for slower paced riding or longer trips.

For the small price difference between Textile and Skin, I'd go for the protection... if dragging a knee is what you want.
