How are the Slider pants?

I saw the Sliders all season Kevlar riding pants. Has anyone used these? Or is there another suggestion. I am looking for some type of mesh riding pants that also has a water proof liner and maybe a quilted liner.

I like mine. I wear them on my FZ1. I have ridden in them anywhere from 100 - 30 degrees. In the summer I just wear basketball shorts underneath and add layers as necessary in the winter.

I have about 10k miles on them and they are still going strong. I wouldn't hesitate buying them again.

Yea--i have a couple of pairs that I wear when I ride my 'busa. No--not as good as leathers, but better than regular jeans. I've seen guy who had a "get off" while wearing regular jeans and those things shred in seconds when they come in contact with pavement. So yes-the kevlar jeans are much better--IMO.

I have a few pairs of Cortech Kevlar Cargo pants. I really like them. Very heavy, but that's good.

Any comparison between them and the Bilt pants?

No sorry. They're dope though. Zip off to shorts. Really well made. I got a good deal on them, but they are worth it. They wouldn't stop a bullet, but they'd prevent a hell of a lot of road rash I bet.

Hey LJ,
Do you have a link or more specific to brand and type. Those pants sound great for summer season.
