Default Leg covering

I have to wear slacks to work but also want to ride to work. Rain and road grime will ruin my pants so I thought about partial leg coverings. I wonder if anyone has suggestions?
Full chaps are too much a hassle. I need ease on /off and protection.

You can get these plain, without the studs, conchos, fringe and lace.
I was thinking of getting a pair of these but I never did. Only my shins need covering. THey get blasted if you don't have lowers.

On a feeling fat day it takes me 30 seconds to get chaps off or on.

Next excuse?

How about bringing a GOOD pair of pants to work and changing into them at work. ??

Wear your biker pants that is when u ride. Then change into your work pants at work. <-- That is what I mean.
