We've been keen to get a hold of these pants since shortly after we added the ever impressive Skyline jacket to our lineup and began to hear rumblings of more.
These understated pants are made from a heavy-duty Scottish canvas that offers breathability with a natural fabric feel. Aether says the material was subjected to extensive abrasion testing and passed with flying colors.
The casual, boot-cut pants come with removable D3O hip and knee armor that’s CE-certified for motorcycle use. The Compass pants are ergonomically correct and motorcycle specific—note the pre-curved knee joints and carefully elimination of pinch points while on the bike.
The Compass pants feature an adjustable waistband with velcro straps for a personalized fit, while the bottom of each leg has both a zipper and velcro closure. These pants' pockets have also been angled for easy access while seated, and a mesh liner makes for a comfortable and airy fit. The clean lines, natural fabric, and muted color palette give the Compass pants a refined style—a rare feature indeed in a jungle of heinous and ill conceived motorcycle specific gear.
