Best Overall: Klim XC
From the technical riding gear giant, the Klim XC lives up to the company’s claim to durability.

A moisture-wicking mesh liner and vent panels on both the upper thigh and lower leg make this pair versatile.
Best For Mobility: FoxRacing 180
Stylish, durable, and versatile, these pants are high quality for an affordable price.
The Fox Racing 180 was made for mobility, featuring a Rider Attack Position construction that facilitates movement.

Most Ventilated: Klim Adventure Rally Air Pant Gray
Though these are designed for off-road biking, they are adaptable to any condition thanks to the reflective mesh fabric and ventilation zippers.
Klim uses Kevlar mesh on these pants, which makes them expensive—but worth it. They are tear and abrasion-resistant and feature panels of fabric at the knees for abrasion resistance.
These pants have fully integrated armor made of D30 XERGO: the highest quality limb protectors that efficiently protect against heat, moisture, and cold.
