Alright, I'm just wondering what brands/models have and would recommend. I'm looking for textile as I'm a new rider & student, and leather is a little outside of my price range at the moment.
I'd like a textile pant that would be good for year-round commuterish riding. Immediately, the Joe Rocket Alter Egos may spring to mind, but I'm wondering if there are any other options. I'd prefer CE armour, or upgradeability to it. Other than that, colour/style etc doesn't really matter as long as it'll keep me (relatively) dry in the "winter" here, and won't be unbearably hot in the summer. I ride a dualsport, if it matters for riding position.
Some brands I've checked out online are:
BMW City Pants
Joe Rocket Alter Ego
Field Sheer Four Season Mesh
Any recommendations/pros/cons...stuff I've overlooked? Please help a new rider out...
