Get some riding pants that aren't leather as well, if you can. There will be days where wearing the leather pants just isn't gonna happen. I have a pair of the Joe Rocket Atomic jeans (they are cargo pants though, dunno why they are called jeans) ... They are great riding pants. Thick material, armored knees and hips, plenty of zippered pockets. A lot of places have them pretty cheap right now too. I know I saw em on the clearance rack at Rec Leisure the other day (a local gear store) for $49.
