Oh, no armor? Boo! I assumed that since there was the little orange CE flag below the description that there was at least knee armor. Hmm.flighty said:LOOOVE the Scorpion pants- I saw them for the first time a few weeks ago online. If they weren't so expensive, I'd totally go for them... I'll see how long I can hold off on my student budget. They're the first perf leather pants I've seen around, and the stitching + design is haaawt. Big drawback- no armor. As much as I hate my "fat pants" (Joe Rocket Cleo overpants, I think), they're loaded with protection in knees and hips. If I got these, I'd try to get some kind of knee guard to go underneath, but that would depend on the fit of the pants.
