I wear fire fighter trousers. Padded where you need them to be. Insanely tough. Very warm. Water proof. Don't flap about in the wind. Support the back a bit as well. And kevlar lined. They usually go for 40-70 squid used on the ebayz. Available in a few colours, and all have various reflective markings. I find that, here in Ireland, most the officers assume I am a fireman, and have never pulled me aside at checkpoints whilst wearing them. I also like how comfy they are and how they look in tan. I used to fight wildfires stateside as a youngster, so the idea for me was a no brainer.
