What do you wear to ride?

I am not going to be doing any racing with my 700xx but I do want to wear some gear that is protective. We mostly ride trials, gravel pits and woods. So nothing real high speed. I ALWAYS wear my helmet and googles, but what else do you casual riders recommend? I usually just wear jeans, a carhartt and some steel toed logger boots.

(laugh away)

I wear Wal-Mart Jeans, some old 3/4 footballs shoes with cleats and any long shirt.

I just never bought riding pants. Come to think of it, only one of my friends has "riding clothes" that aren't jeans and shit.

if you don't have nerf bars, boots are really a good idea. i would have broken my foot or ankle about a week ago whe my foot slipped off the peg. i was wearing full length mx boots, so i just got a bent peg instead. leather stronger than steel...go figure!

1. Most important... HELMET at all times!
2. Good boots
3. Goggles
4. Gloves
5. Chest protector!

MX pants and jersey is just an option if you want to look pretty.
