Riding pants-Thoughts recommendations!

I am looking for something to use as I would a pair of jeans but with protection & breath ability( Live in the south hot summers) . I am looking for either perforated or mesh pants that have protection ,rain liner would be a plus but not a necessity. Looking for quality and bang for the buck lol. I did see these https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...-dry-pants,and fit what i am looking for I think was wondering if anyone else had any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Check out the Tour Master Venture Air. They are mesh with armor and not too expensive.

Might want to check out motorcyclegear.com They usually have good sales going on....

Olympia Airglide. With lightweight long underwear as a base layer they are more comfortable for me than Draggin Jeans.

I find it difficult to shop for pants on line.

I rather go to a store, lOOk at the pants, and try them on for size.

I recommend cyclegear stores. They are all over the place. Sure their stuff is cheap, but hey! its just clothing to ride a bike not to attend a gala.

I went to the Revzilla store in PA but their stock is limited; mostly high-end and a lot of crouchrocketeer stuff.

Don't even bother to visit Motorcycle Superstore in Medford OR. I went out of my way 100 miles to find it it ain't there anymore. Gone on line.

If you want really expensive but good stuff, BMW stores are for you

Aerostich in Duluth is said to be good, though I never been there...yet.

The dilemma with Summer pants is that on at least some occasions, your mornings can be quite chilly (particularly if you are around the Coast or in high altitudes). At that point, mesh pants are not.

I have mesh pants, but I can cover them up with a rain pant and/or an inner liner to handle chilly Summer mornings. You 'll only need to handle about 40deg at most.

If it gets colder than that, I assume I forgot to get back home before the Summer ended.
