The ultimate universal heavy trouserReview by Shane
After owning a pair of Lifties for at least 5 years I reckon they are the most versatile pants you could own. I use the same pair for Adventure motorcycling, daily road riding (approx 25,000k a year), skiing, snow boarding, and once used in the high country while engaged in the "only in NZ" activity of pulling sheep from big dumps of snow.

They are warm, waterproof, windproof, tough, breathable, and padded. They are sufficiently roomy to fit a pair of pants under them, pull over boots for motorcross style boots, ski boots, easily over my road boots, and with a little effort gumboots as well.

I am really pleased I bought these, they have saved me buying at least 2 other pairs of pants. Pretty good value, and yet to show any signs of wear. (Posted on 11/06/19)
