My plan is to use the Air Mesh year round. Cycle Portís web states the liners provide ďÖ-20F to 85FÖĒ. I donít really believe the -20F claim, but with the mild winter weíve had, the coldest Iíve have to ride in is around 18F and I was comfortable. I have found that unless it is below 35F I donít need them for my 12 mile ride to work. For long rides I would put them in if it was under 50F. I canít comment on their use in the rain, Iíve been lucky and seem to dodge the rain most of the time. Iíve only used them in the rain for short periods and they seem to work fine. The liners do make the setup more bulky, so they are relegated to an ďI really need to use themĒ status. I still carry Frog Togs as my primary rain protection if Iím not using the liners.
After almost 2 months the pants are feeling more comfortable and I am very happy with them. I plan to order my Air Mesh jacket by the end of the month. I anticipate Iíll use the liner in that a bit more than the pants liner.
In summing up:
I think they are a great product.
The liners are needed for warmth, but in summer I wonít use them for rain.
Expensive but worth it.
12+ weeks to build!!! A custom motorcycle doesnít take that long to build. I canít fathom why it takes them so long, but they tell you that up front and they are worth the wait.
