    Looking for pants

    I wear youth large or extra large since I am still growing. I wear regular jeans when I ride and it gets real hot, feels restricted. I wear long pants because I ride in the woods where there are a lot of ticks, had one crawling up my leg the other day. Another reason I prefer long pants is so I don't get sunburned just makes life easier for me.

    What would you recommend for pants during the summer? A lot of the ones I'm finding are for winter or are very expensive for me such as the fox pants for $90. I would spend a good amount on pants but nothing close to $100 for a pair.

    Not sure what to offer you here. Downhill or moto pants are rarely cheap. How about something like a pair of Under armour compression tights under a pair of shorts? You can pick those up for around $30 and will hopefully be a little cooler than jeans. You can also treat the tights with Permethrin for added protection.

    Search for closeout motocross pants you'll be able to find some very cheap, but as far as tick protection goes I think they're bad this year pulls 5 off my the day I left Pisgah, none had bitten me yet just check yourself after your ride

    Yeah. I use permethrin on my riding and hiking apparel and DEET on exposed skin. Works well in keeping ticks off and mosquitoes from biting.
    Do the math.
