As the years go on I find myself more concerned with practicality and comfort in my clothing choices. I like clothes that function when I’m working, and when I’m not working, I need clothes that are comfortable, nothing more. So that leaves me wearing cargo pants and leggings. When I spotted GoGo Gear LA riding leggings I had to order a pair and see if they would be a comfortable and practical pair of riding pant. I asked Desiree for help in choosing my size, and was told not to freak out when she suggested size 10 would be the size I needed. She informed me their sizing runs a little small. She nailed it! I gave her my dimensions and size 10 fit perfect! I got to wear these riding around up in New Hampshire for Laconia Bike Week. The leggings are comfortable, and more important the quality is outstanding. These riding pants are made of 100% Dupont Kevlar fibers. Thankfully I didn’t have to put these to the extreme test, but have read testimonials of others who have, and they were able to make out unharmed. The leggings feature CE-approved removable knee protector pads, and also have two inside pockets for hip protectors, though the hip protectors are not included. They do have 2 outside front pockets, but no back pockets, which is something I found I really need. When I ride, I carry a wallet, it’s just easier for me to keep track of those important things. Riding around the white mountains of New Hampshire I got to put these through cool days and blazing hot sunny days. I stayed warm when it was cool, and I didn’t feel overheated when it was warm. I will mention, I tried to avoid direct sun as they are black.
I’m currently riding cross country with an amazing group of female riders on the Sister’s Centennial Ride and I noticed another rider sporting the GoGo Gear leggings. I asked her for her opinion on them. She was pretty pleased with them, and we both acknowledged that sometimes it felt like the knee pads were slipping down, but we both choked that up to “short girl” problems and agreed a belt would help that issue. As the days on this journey go one, I’m seeing more and more riders wearing these leggings and all these ladies are giving them a thumbs up.
If you have been looking for a great pair of comfortable and protective riding pants, do yourself a favor and check the GoGo Gear LA leggings out, we all agree they are a great addition to our riding gear!
