    My bike puts off a lot of uncomfortable heat in the knee and shin area which can be alleviated with leather but I don't want to wear full leather pants. I noticed Revit has their ignition 3 pants but does anyone else known of any other casual pants that have leather from the knee down and mesh along your thighs?

    The Held Hashiro and Camaris suits are leather/mesh. Joe Rocket used to make a set, Dainese had a sporty suit like that (the Mig), and I've seen a couple others over time - but mainly via European retailers.

    Hi

    Wow ...interesting

    I have been using that pant for over 5 seasons now, I feel it flows a ton of air, especially when standing.

    I’m sure if you’re standing frequently it does, but it doesn’t have lower leg mesh to flow air up it on a larger adv bike.

    Hi

    I also own the Motoport FULL mesh kevlar pants.

    Lower leg is full mesh on these pants

    I notice no significant difference in airflow standing or sitting between either pant.

    Both pants flow air better standing than sitting for sure.

    I'm comparing the Rev'it gear/ignition pants against the mojave. In hot and humid VA, I noticed that the ignition pants felt significantly cooler under way then the Mojaves on my Tenere & Africa Twin. I find that the newer Mojave pants fit incredibly well, but this tight fit reduces the ability for air to flow along the skin to cool.
