Re: Olympia Airglide 3 pants
After deciding to buy a pair of Airglide 3 pants I rode to Colorado for a week of riding. I got back about a week ago. I based myself out of Gunnison where the morning temperatures when I left the hotel were anywhere from 35-40 degrees, and the afternoon highs were in the mid 70's. Very nice. I wore the Airglide 3 pants with a pair of UnderArmour level 1 coldgear long underwear. Level one being their lightest long underwear of level 1,2, or 3. I did not use the liner that came with the pants.
While I can't say that I was totally comfortable at 35 degrees, I wasn't cold either. Once the temperature got over 40 degrees I can say that this set up was very comfortable and a lot less bulky then using Olympia's supplied liner. Overall I definitely give these pants two thumbs up. They are comfortable, protective, and are useful in a wide temperature range.
