There aren't as many full-length armored pants out there as you'd expect. With CE Level 2 knee, hip, and coccyx armor, the Pro Pants are a great way to up protection levels in your riding denim. Since the base layer fabric keeps the armor tight to the body, they're also a great alternative to the built-in armor in many ADV/touring pants. In those garments, the knee armor in particular tends to be loose and can slide away from the body when it's needed most. The Pro Pants keep armor where it's meant to be.
