I've been riding in these for a couple of weeks now in moderate desert heat (80-90 degrees, no humidity). I got them to wear over my workout shorts to go the gym, and over scrubs to go to work. They flow a ton of air, and offer way more protection than a pair of jeans. But then again, they should offer more protection because that is why we buy them!
The knee pads have two different height pockets to be placed in, neither of which fit me (5'10", 180 pounds, short waisted). The in-hand description of the fabrics? Pretty thin. But if you're looking at these you are probably willing to compromise a little abrasion resistance for the excellent airflow. Summary? These pants perform well, but if I were looking again, I'd go with something that offers a bit more protection. But then again, it isn't summer yet here, so suffering with less ventilation in 100 degree plus temps doesn't sound too "cool..."

Thick, hot jeans that protect (I hope).

They're jeans. A little longer in the legs, a little thicker, quite a bit hotter and way more durable. I like 'em.
If you wear a helmet every ride, you should also protect the rest of you. An armored jacket, gloves, boots and at the minimum, a pair of kevlar reinforced jeans for your lower torso. I also often wear hard shorts under these. Call me paranoid, but better safe (and hot) than sorry!
I hope I just continue to gripe about how hot they are, and I never, EVER know how well they protect when you go down in 'em. They fit true-to-size in the waist and run long for more protection.

These are like a helmet for your hips. I think we all hope we *never* need to use our helmet, but we wear it just in case. We put up with a little discomfort and just deal with it.
That is these shorts. They're hotter than no hard shorts (duh) but I just live with it knowing that I'm a little more protected for that just in case.
I hope I never know how well they protect in an emergency...

Dark Smoke isn't dark enough

I live in the desert Southwest, and usually wear polarized sunglasses. I bought this dark smoke shield because it is the darkest lens they make, but sadly it is not dark enough for our intense, constant sun. I'm stuck still wearing sunglasses in addition to this shield.
Pros Fashionable, Rugged
Cons Too much light transmission
Yes, I recommend this product.
