The French MP Motorcycle Pants are an excellent pair of water resistant pants from France. Originally these pants were issued to military police motorcycle officers, so they were made from very strong materials to stand up to the level of abuse that comes from daily motorcycle riding. With that in mind, these pants might be the best made wet weather pants that have ever been made.
With most wet weather gear, it is designed to provide water resistance but is made from lightweight materials. While these materials are strong, they are still subject to failure from things like rips or tears. Once a defect has been created in the wet weather pants or jacket, the water resistance properties decrease and the gear becomes completely ineffective. This is where these motorcycle pants come in, they are made from some of the toughest materials as they need to resist the elements while riding a motorcycle at a high rate of speed.
You may or may not ride a motorcycle. If you do not ride, you should think of these motorcycle pants as French Military Police Wet Weather Pants. These pants are just as effective off a motorcycle as on, with the features that make them great motorcycle pants also making them great wet weather pants. The features like the reflective stripes and boot zippers are just as important to those who walk as they are to those that ride.
