Thanks Mike. I went to BMW dealer today picked up BMW all around pants and City3 pants. I couldn't find any store around me to try on Darian pants.Hi Switchglide,
I can't tell you how they'll perform with any authority just yet. The fit is different from the Darien pants I've had for so long. My initial impression is they're more comfortable than the Darien and the material is, essentially, the same. Several of my riding bud have switched from Dariens to AD-1s and they love the fit and performance.
For hot, humid weather, these pants will be hot, just like the Dariens. On my trip this past summer out to Montana, I wore my Darien coat with a hydration vest when crossing the Great Plains in 100° heat. My riding pants were BMW's City Pants. If rain were an issue, I put on Aerostich Ultralight Rain Pants :: Aerostich Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear I've had these for several years and they fold up to a palm-sized package. They've been great.
