It looks like it's a tight fit but it should work.
It might also help if I point out that not only do I have some Forcefield Armour in the knee pockets of the pants but I'm also wearing strap-on Knox knee armour. Also, the lower legs are cinched tight via the aforementioned Velcro closure tabs.

Did they increase the size of that little pocket? Mine is thin and tall. Also, I don't have a removable fanny pack pocket :(

The funny thing is, Belstaff makes plenty of jackets called "drizabone"

Hmm, I saw some Belstaff jackets (had the Belstaff label and logo) and the model was called drizabone. Maybe it was just improperly labeled, I think they were on eBay. But hey, if they started out in 1858 and are still in business over 150 years later they must be doing something right.

As I recall, either Belstaff made some Drizabone gear under license or vice versa. Somebody was selling a jacket in FM recently labeled with both logos.

A bit of research suggests that the companies had a reciprocal marketing agreement in the UK and Australia.

This is getting a bit too close to geekery......

Wink Belstaff Driza-Bone

Belstaff jackets were made by Driza-Bone in Brisbane for about a year.

If anyone knows anything about Driza-Bone they are a part of Australian Folklore " Legends Lore & Lies Australians and their Diza-Bones" a great book of poetry and folklore about the old full length waxed cotton Drover Coats made by Driza-Bone and their history. Commisioned by the Australian Goverment.

I guess they got along for about a year... Funny you would thing the Australian and Brits would get along better..

Kind of like my house growing up.. Dad from Oz.. mum from Liverpool

What a bunch of useless knowledge I have accumulated..

Anyway.. Sorry I did not get to the questions last week. Great Answers ... Thanks again Schtum.. A bit of a War with USA customs... an extra 20% import duty was added to Ladies Pants over Men's and we lost the war..

The Adventure Pants are here and ready to go..

Paul - can you confirm the Adventure pants will indeed go over DS type boots - Schtum leads me to believe they will.

Also, sizing wise, do we select our normal pant length or do we need to add a couple inches to take into account the sitting position on the bike ?

Finally....any plans to offer the pants in other colors ?

Cheers

Thumb New BMG Adventure pants arrived today

New BMG Adventure pants arrived today, and aren't I a happy boy!!

Pants fit perfectly. The size advertised is the ACTUAL MEASUREMENT SIZE!! Amazing I know, but if your waist is 33 inches, the 33 inch pants actually fit!!!

This is my first attempt at posting photos, so please bear with me if this doesn't work...

Me in the new pants (yes, that is my sweet new ride in the background)


You can look, but you can't touch...


Plenty of room for MX boots


My sweet new ride....


I'm really looking forward to giving these pants a workout. Will let you know how they go.

Thanks to BMG for getting them sent out to me so quickly.

Cheers

JT

Pictures didn't come through JT.

Can you comment on the lenght of the trousers please - i.e. did you order your regular trouser length and if so, are the trousers OK while sitting on the bike - i.e. they are a little long when off the bike but don't ride up too much when on the bike ?

Many thanks.
