back on topic...during the summer, armored pants insulate from the heat, but only up to a certain degree. For running around town, I wear BMW armored jeans or BMW Summer pants, and a BMW Airshell jacket. For mobility, I wear Joe Rocket sneakers instead of Dainese race boots, and Dainese gloves with no wrist support instead of BMW DoubleR gloves.
It is downgraded protection from full leathers, to go textile and have no wrist or ankle protection. But creaking around the mall in race boots just doesn't work!
