+1 on the FieldSheer Mercury pants...they are waterproof, too...
They have thigh pockets that can be opened for ventilation, and two-way zips from ankle to thigh that could be opened a bit too. They have done well for me all winter long, and unless they are just unbearable in the summer heat I plan to wear them on any touring I do. They are already my daily-wear. I bought mine on sale from Motorcycle Forum - Wrist Twisters Motorcycle Forum
...They were about $80 at the time. Check with them, maybe they are still on clearance.
That being said, I also have a pair of Olympia Recon 2 pants with lotsa mesh that are great in the summer...My daily-wear jacket is an Olympia GT Air...I'm VERY pleased with my Olympia gear, I'll buy from them in the future.
Another +1 for the Fieldsheer Mercury 2.0s
I wore mine all winter down into the low 30s. Even rode a few times at about 20 degrees. No problems at all. That was commuting with just khakis underneath.
I've been commuting in them around her in the mid eighties in the same khakis with no heat issues.
On longer rides, like the 300+ mile trip I took recently, the weather was in the upper 80s and wearing cargo shorts underneath I was still comfortable.
My only gripe about the pants would be the knee area when wearing shorts. The armor pouch is made of nylon so it made my knees sweat at times. I think I'm going to get some underarmor pants to wear on hot days.
+1 on price i got mine for xmas for $80 plus i bought the misses her pair for $80 from bikebandit.
check around for best prices!
