Customer Questions

Below are some common questions we get from customers about our Armored Riding Pants.

Q: Are these pants abrasion resistant?
A: Our main design function is impact protection.  While the armor pieces do offer you some abrasion resistance, the pants themselves are not reinforced.  If you require additional abrasion protection, we recommend choosing an outer layer designed for that purpose.

Q: What is the difference between the Cool-Air and Adventure pants?
A: The Cool-Air Pants are made entirely from a stretchy, lightweight elastic mesh material.  The Adventure Pants are made from a stretchy, mid-weight Lycra material with a ventilated crotch panel.  Both types of pants have tailbone, hip, knee/shin and thigh armor.

Q: What temperature are these recommended for?
A: We do not have a specific temperature range for our gear but if you are at all concerned about heat and humidity then we recommend our Cool-Air Pants.

Q: Do these last as long as your regular stuff?
A: The Cool-Air mesh is all holes and is naturally not as thick and strong as a solid Lycra material.  Reasonable caution must be exercised when pulling the knees on or off—don’t just pull on the cuffs!  However, we have carried out extensive durability testing on our mesh and have found it is a very practical and durable solution, providing that a little more attention is given by the rider.

Q: But are they scratchy?
A: Many people think of mesh and instantly think of a stiff, scratchy fabric.  Our mesh is actually designed specifically for active wear so it has a lot of stretch and give and is very soft against the skin!

Q: Do I have to wear underwear with these?
A: That is a personal choice that we leave up to our customers, but most riders choose to wear undergarments with their Cool-Air Pants for cleanliness, hygiene and modesty reasons.

Q: Do these have a fly?
A: Our Cool-Air Pants are unisex style and do not come with a fly.

    Great ProductI've been using this armor for four months now from hot weather to cold, and I am very pleased. It actually holds in more heat than you'd expect for winter riding. I wear Under Armor thermal pants and shirt under them, then layer my outer clothing as needed for the conditions.

    Awesome protective shell!I was previously wearing nylon pants that included knee and thigh pads. Because the pads were not fixed and would easily move around, I never felt safe. The Cool Air Mesh Riding Pants Shell offers far greater protection. Because it's form fitting, the pads are held firmly in place. In addition, the pants include additional shin and tailbone protection. I also haven't been bothered by any additional body heat. Their Customer Service Dept. is top notch. They are eager to help you with any questions or exchanges. Great product! Great company!

    Hot weather friendI had purchased the mid-weight riding pants two years ago. Recently purchased the mesh/ summer weight pants. Transfered my original armor to the mesh pants, and I was ready to go. Very comfortable in the heat under my jeans. This product works as advertised. Also, the Bohn Armor system holds the armor in place, unlike riding pants with pockets to slip in the armor pieces into. I’m am very happy with this company. High quality products, & great customer service

    Works as intendedThey do fit the armor pads from my all season Body Armor set as promised. Need to take the usual care to insert the armor pads correctly, especially the hip & upper leg pads. Very noticeable that it was cooler to ride with the mesh pants on a really hot day.

    Great!These fit perfectly under my Kevlar pants with all armor inserted allowing constant airflow to keep me cool on these warm/hot summer days.

    Been a customer for well over a decade. Great product. I did stress mine a few years ago, worked great. Most impressive is the flat out abuse I put on my Bohn Armor gear. I only needed to replace mine due to a large weight loss

    One for Winter and One for SummerI received the perforated bohn armor shell I ordered from your website.
    I have also tested these pants out in different weather conditions.
    I can now write back to let you know that I am extremely happy. I do not get as hot as I did with the non perforated bohn armor pants.
    I will order some more pads for my non perforated bohn armor pants soon, so I can have two. One for winter and one for summer.--Elias V (Australia)
