    Boot/Trouser interface

    OK. Having finally had my new breeks delivered, I've found out that either A. Dane trousers are made on the tight side or B. I have massive calf muscles.

    The story starts with a leaky pair of Klim Latitude trousers, which were repaired by Gore and then later returned for a refund as they still leaked. I ordered a pair of Dane Lyngby trousers and after a short wait on them, tried them on today and boy are they tight in the calf area. I admittedly do have slightly larger than normal calf muscles, but nothing like Arny in his prime.

    I can get a pair of Daytona boots under them, but it's very slightly tight but not impossible to get the zip closed, but I have no chance getting the zip done up with my Forma Adventure boots.

    Dane wearers - is this normal? Rev it users - I might return then for the Poseidon GTX trousers, but are they any more roomy in the calf area? Failing that, I might just get another pair of Latitudes or sell the Forma's and get some other boots. Or wear them with the zips undone - is that an option?

    Thoughts and discussions please...

    I have a pair of Rev'it Horizon 2 trousers and there is plenty of room in the lower leg. I have large calf's and sometimes have trouble with boots. Can't see you having a problem with Rev'it.

    Are they defiantly designed as over boot?

    They'll go over the boots no matter what people say

    Different trousers but I had a couple of 10 inch zips put into the inside seams of my Hood jeans. This makes getting into boots so much easier


    YKK do an open ended waterproof zip called Aquaseal

    If the fit is uncomfortable on your calves and you can’t zip up the trouser leg, then I’d return the item for replacement/refund. The Dane Lyngby are quite expensive, so I’d get the trouser which meets your requirements. I have the Dane trouser and I find the fit excellent and comfortable for touring and walking about in. The Dane Lyngby has a more “tailored” fit to go over a touring type boot (I wear Atlberg Hoggs) as opposed to Klim adventure type trousers which are a bit more “baggy” to provide much more clearance for the adventure offroad type boots which will probably meet your needs better.

    Ordered a pair of these from www.motoin.de today - might even be here by tomorrow.

    Nice spec for the money - https://www.scott-sports.com/au/en/p...=2406130001006

    Nothing wrong with the Dane trousers, but they're very fitted by design - very well made and again, nicely spec'd, but I don't want to have to change my boots just to fit the trousers - although I have been taken by the Revit Pioneer and Discovery boots...
