The Tourmaster/Cortech DSX denim motorcycle pants are what I was looking for to ride in the warmer weather. They are comfortable while riding since they seem to be more breathable than the padded motorcycle pants that I usually wear. Denim, though, can be really oppressive in the hot humid weather when you finally get to your destination. I find that the plastic knee protectors (which are removable) tend to bother me when walking around because the top of the protector hits the bottom of my knee cap unless I pull the pants way up around the top of my waist. In that case I take the protectors out.

Very comfortable riding pants. I'm 5'9" and around 195, with probably a 37" waist (some 36" pants fit perfectly, others are a bit snug), so I opted for the 38"W x 30"L, and they fit very well (they'll probably be a perfect fit after a couple of washes). Naturally, while walking around the knee armor is a bit awkward, but as one salesman explained to me, the armor is supposed to ride low while walking and should shift into place when you sit down to ride. If you do take the knee armor out at your destination, they feel just like regular blue jeans (can't really even tell the hip armor is there). I can see where they may get a bit warm in the summer, but I'd rather sweat than bleed, as someone else once said. Very nice quality, and feels very durable. Can't tell you how well they protect in a crash, and, Lord willing, I never will :-). Overall, I'd buy another pair in a heartbeat...I highly recommend these.
Great idea, mediocore execution. The sizing compared to regular jeans is off. The waist is smaller, and the legs are too wide causing the knee protectors to flop around. Not suitable for temperatures over 80 degrees, HOT
