I just saw this thread and thought I'd put my 2 cents in.
Got a pair of the VM pants about a month ago.
Been riding all around Mexico with them.
I can honestly say that they are the best hot weather pants I have ever had.
You really do not get hot in them and you hardly notice that you are sweating. (That's on a 100 degree plus day)
Once you get past the initial sticker shock (price) they are great.
I really would like to get the jacket also. But I have enough jackets to last me a lifetime.
