need some pants recommendations

So i want to get some pants, i'm thinkin the cortech HRX to match my jacket, zip together suit for hot days, but I also really like the tourmaster Apex leather pants in flat black and would offer better protection. I wonder if the Apex pants would zip to my HRX that would be tight.

they are around the same price too. most places seem to be out of the HRX pants I don't know why.

the HRX has got to be the most perfect all around suit, you could take that on a cross country trip and just swap out the dual liners when its either really cold, or wet. just add some waterproof boots and gloves in case.

but for textile pants with armor what are my best options. i'd like hip and knee armor because i know that will hit hard in a slide.

And if your worried about hot weather get the perforated leather. Trust me air flows thru it enuff to cool ya off. Its all hot when stopped tho. But like they say sweat washes off.

sweat does wash off this is true, so some perforated leather pants would be perfect, or jsut get those HRX's for the summer they have hip and knee armor i believe.

yup those will work. I'd stay away from textile or mesh unless you live where it get ridiculously hot. Like 100+ etc. They do their job well but like a rubber one use n they're trash. With leather normally they are just scuffed up and if its more than scuffs they can be repaired and/or redyed.
