Leather Pant Fit?
How should track pants fit? I just got new leathers from RST for my 2-piece jacket - I have a 32.5" waist. I order a 34" but it was loose, as in when I zipped up and strapped the pants (without the jacket), I felt like I needed a belt to hold up my pants. I went the next size down and it's snug around the hips and thighs, but this is when I'm standing up. Is this how it should fit?
Also, I don't have any pockets for hip pads (nor any space) - do most track riders wear some kind of hip protection? The sales rep at RidersDiscount (where I got the pants) told me it's not common for riders to have hip protection. He said shoulder, knee, elbow, and back protector and I'm good to go.
