https://www.airlite.ca/ - Airlight Motorcyle Chaps. Had them on several bikes that didn't have the factory lowers on them. Just sold mine to a friend since I installed speakers in hard lowers on my Rushmore Roadie. Easy to take on and off and came with a bag.

I must live under a rock, next to my bike,of course. I haven't heard of any of these awesome suggestions. Thank you my brothers for keeping this forum a true stand-out. TEAR-IT-UP out there!

The airlites read amazing. Do they really move enough air to the engine in warm weather while raining or just riding after day warms up? Thanks

Yes, and no. The center of the chaps is mesh, which allows air to the front cylinder. But the pieces that wrap on the bars are not mesh and block air from getting enough air to the sides of the front cylinder and rear cylinder, so riding with chaps (any soft lower) above 60* is not a great idea. I've left mine on in the rain over 60* with no issues and rode over 50 miles at over 70* in sunny weather because I just forgot to take them off when I left work. Again, no issues. The Airlites go off and on so easy that you can take them off , roll it up, and stick it in saddle bag if the weather warms up on you.

I have had Airlites on my last three bikes. Love them and extremely well made.
So what is the benefit of the Airlites product over the HD soft lowers? The price is basically identical from what I can see. Not trying to shove money to one over the other, but I am just wondering...

Another vote for the Airlites. I have had them on my last two bikes, and my two riding buddies also got them once they saw mine. Ease of on and off, you can get them with holes for highway pegs or without (not a zipper like HD), and really effective windblocking are the pros. Also I like it being one piece and the buckle on the HD also steered me away.

Well for one they look better on the bike but most of all they are much easier to put on and take off. They are a one piece construction and they just slide over one side and you just wrap and secure the Velcro on the other. I've had both and the HD weren't bad by any means but the Airlites were quite a bit better.

I got my Airlites with the pouches on the back so I also gained some extra storage space. Not a ton of space but I'll take it. I've looked at other bikes with HDs version and the quality just isn't comparable with the HDs lacking.

Thanks for the comparison!
