Rainy Philly

So other than wishing you were on your bike, what's everyone do a rainy night like tonight?

Working a little bit, couple of movies and catching up on Game of Thrones for me tonight

I got my new (used but new to me!) alpinestars jacket last week, plus I have some tcx x-square evo boots coming in next week. I have some alpinestars pants, but they are a bit large on me - when I stand up, the knee armor drops just below me kneecap

Need some gloves and I will be on my way

I am definitely going to try and get out tomorrow if the weather holds up!

Where the knee armor lands when you are standing is not as important as where it is set when you are in riding position.... It will almost certainly hit when you are 'tucked' rather than standing up. I would also be somewhat surprised if there was no way to adjust the position of the armor. My textiles all offer multiple positions for the attachment of the armor.

It does come up a bit when crouched. I will check on the adjustments. This is my first set of pants/jacket (yep, was a squid when I was younger). Thanks for the tip!

Three pair of riding pants, all three have a way to move the location of the armor up or down the pant leg.
