Leather all summer. Either older two piece and very heavy First-Gear... pants not perforated, are very thick, and they do get warm; or one piece Teknic that is fully perfed... legs are fine when moving.
Yeah, I'm surprised at how good they are in the summertime. I thought it would get gross & sticky, but I hardly even notice it when I'm off the bike. I had a tailor remove the kevlar & put it in one of my Levis Skinner jeans. Got thrown off my bike once. Although I skidded a bit my jeans surprisingly came out ok. It didn't even go through the denim, but it did grind down the metal rivet of my jeans. Well, glad you like the jeans!Formerly known as hawaiibiker said:I have an older pair of Vanson perforated pants that I used when I went cross-country on the bike. They gave good ventilation while moving but not as good as the Vanson perforated jacket.
Since I've been in Hawaii, leather pants are definitely out of the norm and a bit too hot. I took your recommendation and bought a pair of the Hood jeans. I love these jeans [thumbsup] The kevlar lining, although warm, never really got too hot.
