Olympia Airglide 2 Mesh Tech Over Pant

Anyone out there familiar with these pants. I'm looking for a single pair of plants that I can wear in all New England riding conditions. Water resistant (if not waterproof), full side zips, armor and great venting are high on my priority list.

Thanks for any feedback.

I really like mine.

I've had a pair for a few months now. The shell with out the liners do a good job of letting the air through. I like to wear shorts here in California during the summer. Not the best idea for riding the motorcycle. The over pants let me keep cool while riding and they are easy to take off after I arrive. Just in the past few weeks it has been necessary to add the liners for the cool mornings. Keeps everything warm and comfortable. Last Wednesday a rain storm surprised me but I stayed perfectly dry. Works just as advertised. I also wear the Airglide 2 jacket and can say the same thing for it.

Great products!

I own the Airglide 2 pants. Good airflow. Reasonable protection. Removable liner is definitely waterproof. Liner is moderately insulated and provides enough for me to wear these pants as year round (including winter) riding pants. Only disadvantage: wearing liner due to rain in summer = hot due to the liner being insulated. Trade off is worth it to me.
