    What's wrong with leather for offroad? I still have some leather motocross pants, the brand name was/is 'Jofama'. Pretty sturdy, although well before any CE certifications.

    Dealing mud and water is not leather's strong point :lol3

    ....and I don't fancy spending 3-4 hours re-conditioning a my leathers if I can avoid it.

    Thanks for all the input I think I found what I was looking for and bought some adventure spec Mongolia pants. Lots of 1000d material and big vents. Hope they work out.

    My first time with vented pants I got stung by a bee, two-up on the downside of a mountain at about 120km/h :lol3
