Mesh Pants

Do you all think mesh pants are a good step up from jeans? (as far as protection)

I was specifically looking at these:

First Gear Mesh Tex

Depending on the material, you will get anywhere from 2-5x the protection of denim. Check out the "Save Your Hide Guide" and then see what the pants are made from to see how they compare to each other and to jeans.

I have the Joe Rocket ones and have yet and hope to never test the theory. They are comfy, provide good air flow and appear like they would hold up well.

I only wear them on really hot days as other times it is leather.

Dang...2-5x the protection of denim doesn't sound like much. Thanks for the awesome link though.

I have the First Gear Mesh Tex pants and jacket. I love them, the foam armor is a little bit cheap. But they are easy to upgrade. And they have tall sizes which fit me perfectly!

The mesh makes it feel like your riding naked...
