I've been wearing over-the-boot off-road pants since the late 90s (not the baggy freestyle type) and very much prefer them over in-the-boot style. They keep the tops of my boots clean, they help to keep my feet dry on wet days & watercrossings, and they've never been a bothersome snag hazard. However, some swear they've been ripped off the bike when they snagged on a tree or they get their kickstarter or footpeg tangled up in the pant leg. If you're like me and wear OTB pants, what's been your experience? Are they really the safety hazard some claim? Or, are they just full of it?
