Side zip pants, do they still make these?
 
I remember when all the popular athletes wore these but they must have went out of style as I couldn't locate any. I have a short commute and wanted to get something that I could just put on over my work pants to keep them from getting dirty, if I could find something like those that zipped all the way down the sides it would be easy.

They make them with velcro now. Check stripper supply stores

Go to Goodwill.
Get some nylon sports pants a larger size then you wear.
They zip at the ankle.

Or target or walmart or sports authority or...

I have two pairs from Target made by champion. I stash one in my van to throw over my tights when I need to run errands.

Are you taking about roadie training pants withthe zipper in the back?

Wanted something that zipped all the way so I could take them off and on without having to pull over my shoes. I've looked at Dicks sporting goods and Target, didn't find any, found some online for $80.

These are still very popular amongst soccer players. Check your local soccer store. :)

Try some of the outdoor/hiking/backpacking suppliers for full zip pants, such as Cabelas, Backcountry.com, Campmor, Sierra Trading Post, REI. These stores' pants are typically baggy, not form-fitting like most bicycling clothes, so its easier to move in them while hiking on uneven terrain where. Here's the pair I use when hiking:

Most sporting goods stores have some. Look at warm-up pants for soccer, track, tennis, etc. While most don't have full side zips, they usually have enough of a zipper on the bottom of the legs to get them off over standard street shoes (or cycling shoes).

There are others if you look. Bibs often have leg zippers so that they can be put on over pants. :thumb:

I have a pair of (covered full zip) bib pants. They weren't cheap but I use them for all
things cold winterish. My 3 season rain pants have an ankle zip that I can don or doff
over shoes.I have used a cheap(?) pair of ski pants with articulated knees at one
time also ankle zips that worked.

I have a pair of Patagonia Rain shadow pants that have the half-leg zip. I'd wear them snowmobiling if I had to go snowmobiling.
