Aerostich   Utility Pants

398_1e_sm398_1a_sm398_1c_sm

When it comes to comfortable, versatile, tough-as-nails do-it-all American-made trousers that also function as exceptional rider’s wear, Aerostich Utility Pants have you covered. Patterned exactly like Aerostich’s popular AD-1 riding pants, but without the full-length outseam zippers, they offer the fit and comfort of traditional jeans-cut styling, combined with the rugged, all-weather protection of either 500D or 200D Mil-spec Cordura® GORE-TEX® fabric, making them an excellent choice for riding, as well as all rugged off-bike activities. They wear and feel great doing yard work, camping, for all construction work, or anyplace a durable and comfortable pair of pants are needed. As stated by David in a recent product review, “They fit great…and are ideal to wear against the skin, with running shorts, or over a medium weight base-layer in winter”.

1981, Sunrise Cycle park and we’re testing the brand new YZ465. The big news came in the 43mm fork and improved rear Monoshock. I loved this bike, Super Hunky groaned.
