Pants - tall rider

Anybody have suggestions for pants that hold up and allow range of motion with under the pants knee guards. I have burned several holes in my Klim Dakar pants (34 Tall). I have a 36 - 38" inseam but since they could go in the boot they could be a bit shorter than normal pants. What doesn't burn up when a hot pipe lands on it?

This is exactly why a pipe guard, is essential... I have had the same one for at least 4 of my own bikes... plus, I hate pain, nothing like getting a sever burn from headpipes, to make you not only hate replacing your $150 trials/riding pants, but not having the weeping infected wound as well.

Header and pipe guards are installed - 4 stroke Sherco with TI header. It just seems that there are still spots on the header that find the pants - side opposite the pipe where the header bends is the latest culprit. I value my leg more, and I'm burn free so far.

Right here is also my advertisement for leather gloves. I had a weird get off recently and ended up grabbing the pipe with my right hand. Hurt/stung like hell, but the material didn't melt and didn't end up with any blistering or anything. Not sure what would have happened with synthetic palms...?

I have an old pair of pants I resurrected by sewing a large leather patch over the melt holes inside the right leg. Leather is the best.

Pants? It`s been awhile since a hot pipe has landed on me with a trials bike.
