Scorpion Deuce mesh overpants

Just got a pair of Scorpion Deuce mesh overpants for the summer time... couldn't make myself drop the change for Motoport...

If you want pics, there are plenty at Newenough.

They are very sturdy in design, much heavier than my FG HT overpants. Construction seems top-notch. The thigh and back of calf are mesh and flow a decent amount of air, although not as much as the other mesh pants I've seen. The flip-side is that they feel more protective (I don't plan on testing them any time soon).

Main point I wanted to share was that they are built for you tall skinny muthers. I'm 6ft 230lbs, wear jeans in either 36x32 (too tight) or 38x32(too loose) sizes and ordered the XXL in the Scorpion pants to fit as overpants. With jeans and a belt, the XXL fits snuggly, and there is plenty of inseam. If I lose about 10 lbs. they shoud fit perfectly as overpants, for now they fit fine as long as I don't put the liner in.

Overall, I like them very much... they are made from a heavy material,and feel very protective while flowing enough air to keep my boys happy (for now anyway, I'll know more when the temp climbs higher during the summer).

+1 on the scorpion deuce pants. I've had mine for about seven months and love them. Fit easily over pants and with the liner I've been able to wear them throughout the winter and on rainy days. Agree that they're not quite as free flowing of air as I would like for lower than highway speeds but overall I am happy with the amount of protection/air they do provide.

I am looking at these and the Icon Arc Mesh or Textile over pants for daily riding. Obviously, to wear as over pants ;-) Got an opinion on which is better? I am really torn.

I wear shorts to work everyday, and just want something to throw on to give a little protection. Easy on and off, throw them in the side bag. I'm watching this thread too for some suggestions.

I knew if I didn't qualify my answer it would come back to 'haunt' me. :-D

I should have added that I like wearing these pants alone as well versus having overpants and a separate pair of riding pants.... These look good on and off the bike and just don't seem to be as baggy as other brands I looked at. I sometimes think of getting perforated leather pants but the upkeep, expen$e and not having the functionality of these makes me feel these are a good choice.
