Womens Gear?

Well after a handful of rides with my girl on the back I can't get over the fact that she only has a good jacket, gloves, an helmet. I need to get her some pants since that they would be protecting a pair of her best assets... . I am looking for protection over all, not style. And guys or gals on here that have experience with this, their input would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Icon and AlpineStars make some fantastic women's riding gear, top to bottom. Cycle Gear also has their brand, BiLT or Street&Steel, which is significantly lower priced.

I'd recommend going with a quality overpant, something textile of course. You know how fit can be an issue w/ our women and most overs have elastic in the waist and/or an adjustable strap. They offer excellent protection and can be taken off when you get to your destination and put in a backpack if you have some walking to do. I did a quick craigs search to show you some:
Here, here and here. One more.

If you'd like to see her in a pair of leathers... here is your chance.

Wish I lived close to this guy!

If you have the chance, check out the brand FirstGear. Very high quality stuff and I speak from experience. My wife can wear my overpant easily. The legs are a little long for her when standing, but on the bike they are fine.
