Xelement Advanced Level-3 Black Tri-Tex

I've been looking for some pants when riding on the street and gravel roads and stuff on my KLR...
I found these Xelement Advanced Level-3 Black Tri-Tex pants over at Amazon.
They are pretty cheap for $60 bucks...
anyone ever hear of this brand before?

ok I've owned them for a little over a week now and they seem to be ok adventure pants...
the knee cups are pretty much useless......they will not protect you knee at all... they slide around.... I ended up ordering some strap on knee guards and will just remove the knee cups out of these pants. Also there is zero hip protection.. but its not a big deal for me because I wear padding riding shorts under neath them

The two vents on the legs are very nice to keep your testicles nice and cool.....

I have a pair and like them for "overpants". I took out the useless knee protection and wear Bohn Armor Adventure Pants underneath...and the vents are awesome. They are NOT waterproof or resistant.

also they fit small... i am normally a 34 inch waste and saw people saying that so I ordered a 36..... and they are snug around the waste but not bad...
kind of baggy down low...

I do wish they had some more vents.... I did ride through some prickers and stuff on my KLR650 and they seemed to keep me from getting scratched up....
