I had to think on your question, as it seems almost every robust pant on the market is waterproof or has thermal liners to fuss with. Both the Klim and the Held are Gore-Tex pants, so if you are using a waterproof rain pant over your protective gear, it seem like a waste to pay the premium price attached to anything Gore-Tex.
The option I like best is the Dainese Drake Air pant
. The outer shell has similar construction to the Defender pants with a large air vent backed in 3D mesh. It has a euro fit, and at $259.95, it's much more reasonable than any similar pant offered by REV'IT!, Klim, or Held.
