1. Laminated GoreTex memrane (or imitation, if it can be waterproof/ breathable)
2. Good ventilation
3. Not too loose fit- I don't need overpants.
I watched a lot videos and read reviews, but still couldn't get a clear picture in my head. Or maybe such pants don't exist.
There isn't a perfect answer to your question in the REV'IT! pant collection. The closest is the Legacy GTX pants. They do have a removable thermal liner which would potentially allow you to ride with them year round, depending on your climate. The Gore Tex membrane is the most breathable waterproof membrane on the market and this pant does have leg vents, but only vent to the Gore Tex membrane and not directly to your skin. The fit is in line with what you are looking for, as the Legacy GTX pants are riding pants, not overpants.
