Pants Advice?

I'm looking for a new pair of riding pants. I've always worn overpants, but I'm finding more and more that even in the summer I don't really take them off that often.

So I'm looking for something with knee and hip armor (so Sliders and Draggin' aren't really ideal) that doesn't look too far from normal, bonus for color options other than black, under $150. Any personal experience to help guide the search?

I've got the Alpinestars Street Cargo:



Look pretty normal, come with armor, but no Kevlar. Made from abrasion resistant material. Come with removable liner. No hip armor.

Take a look at the Olympia Cargo pants. They are great for warmer riding (late spring to early fall). They have the armor your looking for and are very comfortable. They even have some thigh vents for those really hot days.

It looks like these only come in silver, yes?

I love the look of the khaki BMW Summer II pants, but damn they're spendy!
