Zeus Motorcycle Touring pants review

For the ride to Goa for India Bike Week this year I had on test with me the Zeus Motorcycle Touring pants. Like most textile pants they are made from durable 600 denier outer shell with stretch panels in the crucial areas for a better fit and YKK zippers for better durability. It comes equipped with a Reissa Powerskin rain/wind/snow proof removable liner that was promptly removed for the warm weather between Mumbai and Goa. The fit is quite good with the stretch panels in the crotch and behind the knees. There are Velcro straps around the waist for an adjustable fit and the portion around the ankles is zippered so they are easier to put on. The fit around the ankles is quite snug and a little odd for a set of touring pants though and it's not possible to zip up the ankle adjustment over a set of proper riding boots. There is one other complaint that I do have and it's actually not quite with the pants at all. The jacket and pant set have a zippered connection. And while the pant portion of this zippered connection is quite securely mounted to the waist of the pants, the zipper portion on the jacket is mounted to the mesh inner lining, which is not exactly a secured spot and any little stress on this is sure to rip the lining.

On the ride into Goa the pants were pretty comfortable with long stints on the motorcycle handled quite pleasantly without much discomfort. In fact on the first day of IBW we arrived late and with a packed schedule of interviews and events to attend there was no time to get out of the pants. I comfortably spent the whole day in them, walking around the stands and between venues without much concern. That's always a good thing
