    Hi all, her indoors tried a pair of these Kevlar leggings on in York last week and really liked them, the only thing we're not sure about is, with them being black and quite thick, what will they be like in a hot country? we're heading down through Spain to Portugal this summer where hopefully the weather will be a bit better than it is here in Blighty!! Has anyone experienced these in the heat?

    Female motorcyclists dressing like skiers..............

    I hope this trend comes to America. And, yes, I do miss that aspect of skiing........

    They're going to be rather hot as Kevlar doesn't breathe.

    If I'm wearing tighter motorcycle pants, I can have an issue with knee armor being pressed into my knee from the tension while riding, so make sure it isn't pulled up too much past tight over the thighs.

    Haven't seen motorcycle jeans in other colour than black or blue yet.
    They're less hot than normal motorcycle pants, even less than the blow through versions since these have the tendency to be narrow cut and stick to your sweaty legs :).
    If you buy a jeansy type of pants, make sure to go for comfort on the bike, which means not to narrow cut, instead of trying to be super hot when of the bike.
    And don't get your hopes up: in summer Spain & Portugal can get rather hot , up to 40°C, with even 45°C around Madrid and in Andalusia, so'll you be swimming in your gear anyway...

    I presume you mean York near Leeds? Did you try them at Infinity or somewhere else?

    My wife runs a ladies only motorcycle club in Yorkshire and I know a few members have been taking about these but nobody has any experience of them. They'd be interested in your wife's thoughts.

    I wouldn't worry about the colour - isn't most motorcycle gear black anyway?

    One alternative may be too buy the Kevlar only leggings that are designed to be worn under outer clothing of your choice. Something like these https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/238653

    As with many things trendy...................Those who "do" are the ones that "shouldn't".

    BTW - My initial posting on this thread was purely sexist.

    I wear the Spidi Furious jeans, which have a lot of airflow on the inner thigh. Very cool for motorcycle jeans, can cool off at will. Wonderfully form fitting as well.

    Perhaps, the only solution is to be Scottish whenever the temps rise.....

    OK! My wife wore Hein Gericke ColdBlack air trousers and jacket with a thin bodysuit on colder days and nothing.... on warm days....

    She was a true 80's jeans and trainers rider until discovering vented textiles...

    Hope this helps as she swore by this new type of clothing.

    My girl bought these a few weeks ago. She likes them a lot.
    They are pretty warm though so not ideal for a eurotour in summer - but ideal for a three season UK pant I reckon.
    They hold off a light shower no trouble and you could 'proof' them easily enough.
    She's 5'11" and has strong legs, larger calves and is slim/ medium build.
    The waist is nice and high, but doesn't ruck up whilst sitting - belt loops and pockets, and they suit long legs. Good quality. Bought them at Bikestop online.

    I forgot to mention my wife and her friend bought the Moto Girl leggings from Infinity in York.

    We did 2,000 miles from 31 August to 13 September around northern Spain. Both women loved the leggings. They are both comfortable all day and had no issues with overheating.

    I got my cobbler to knock up an adapter which allows her to zip them to her jacket. She didn't want to sew in a zip as the waist is stretchy and sewing a zip in would likely reduce the stretchiness.

    Moto Girl have just revised them, so they now have pockets on the back and zips on the ankles. My wife is considering buying another pair
