Arlen Ness Waterproof Trousers (NP-6066-AN)

Recommended Posts

I have a set of what i believe to be called "ARLEN NESS NP-6066-AN WATERPROOF PANTS". Piccy here: http://www.bigbikebook.com/ProductImages/fullsize/np-6066-an_black_f.jpg

The trousers seem to have soft but fairly bulky shin pads in them that seem to prevent me from wearing boots over the top of the trousers. However, the zip on the lower leg of the trousers allows the fit to be loosened, but not fully opened, so it is a big struggle to get the trousers to go over standard motorcycle boots.

Does anyone know if am i supposed to take out the shin pad material when wearing boots (which would seem to leave the upper shin unprotected?), or is there another way this armour is supposed to be worn with boots? Do i need special boots?

Hmmm... Suspect they are meant to fit over the boot's but you are obviously struggling with it. Would recommend removing the shin pads and trying that. In theory if you have good length boots that should work for you.

See what others say though mate, I could be wrong.

According to a guy in the local Bike Gear shop the trousers are "touring style" and so need a touring style boot, even with the padding out. Had a go with some Vortex ones, but wasn't convinced by the level of ankle protection (i.e. low), and found them a little too "tall" (they were "bunching"/crumpling downwards as i stood up straight - makes sense?).

So am still none the wiser regarding good boots for these - the Aldi boots i have (badly worn and no longer waterproof) weren't the worst, but not available AFAIK!
