I really would like to get a pair of mesh overpants for this summer that I could wear with bike shorts or even just my underwear . I've looked at the wide variety that first Gear, Olympia ect...make and also at the Motoport Kevlar Mesh. Here is my question...how much more protective is nylon mesh if any over say Cortech riding jeans with knee armor and added leather on the hips? In the case of a low side "get off" , will the Olympia mesh pants be destroyed as quickly as a pair of jeans (both of which I will only be wearing tighty whiteys), or will they hold up longer and protect more. Obviously I'm going for the "cool" ride in temps over 80 f and also for ease of wearing my work clothes under pants for commuting puposes.
The Motoport site makes it sound like "if it aint kevlar...then it aint working"
