With rain liner in what do we think the temperature range is for the Turbine pant? I do most of my riding in So Cal and Arizona so rain-proof and super warm is that important. Will the silver color match up well with the grey/green Cayenne jacket?
Many folks pair the Cayenne Pro jacket with the Turbine Pants. They actually use the same materials, so the colors will match up well. The Turbine pants with the liner in are probably good to the mid-50's or so, but that hugely depends on your personal temperature tolerance. The Turbine will out-perform the Cayenne Pro jacket in the warmer end of the spectrum, but I would say they can comfortably go up to 90 degrees.
One more issue of note with the Turbine pants, the SuperFabric on the knees can scratch your fairing. If you are riding a naked bike or a GS, you should be fine. I have used the Turbine pants (ladies version, of course) on my GS1200 with no scratching issues.
Other than the fairing-compatibility thing, the Turbine pants are rock solid, super protective mesh pant, and really a shame REV'IT! discontinued them.
