Our Two Cents
Need a simple textile overpant for commuting or touring? Something that is lighter weight with just the basics? And a reasonable price? The Fly Racing Butane Overpants should be just the thing. The shell of these pants is simple solid textile nylon, which gives the basic coverage for road dirt grime and give the basic abrasion protection case of a fall. The shell material is made waterproof with an interior barrier so they should work fine for wet weather use too.
These are traditional “overpants” which means that the pants are fitted with long side zippers on the outside of each leg. You can use those zippers to put the pants on and take them off over your regular street clothes without taking your boots off, so you can do it right in the parking lot when you get to work or where ever you are going.
Typical molded knee armor pieces are located in pockets in the knee area that are adjustable in two positions to help you position the height of the armor to fit your knee when you are in a seated position. Keep in mind that the armor nearly all motorcycle pants will down down lower on your leg when standing so you’ll want to make your adjustments and evaluate fit while in the riding position. The pants are also fitted with some simple foam pads in the hips.
A couple other nice features… on either side of the waist band are Velcro adjusters to help you get the right fit in the waist. The adjusters can make the pants fit smaller (but not bigger). There are two hand warmer pockets in front to store a few things and those have waterproof zippers to keep rain out. I notice the long side zippers are “two way” meaning you can zip down from the top. This is a handy thing for overpants since it allows you to reach into the pants through that zipper opening and reach your jeans pockets. Otherwise, you’d have to open the waist and reach in through the top.
Gosh, for the cost of these pants, I think they’d work great for everyday use on the street, and perfect for commuting to work with street clothes on underneath. :: Paul, 09-19-17
