Which Over trousers/ textile trousers

Hello :smile

Im looking for some over trousers which can be worn over normal jeans.  Have GOOD knee and hip impact protection which will be good for riding in the summer but most importantly have good abrasion resistance.

Currently Ive only got a full one piece leather suit but Im looking for something so when I commute I can just slip off some over trousers and change my shoes and im ready to go.

Id also like them to be light and breathable enough that when I take my bike (KTM 450 supermoto) off road in off road trim they can be worn for good abrasion resistance on the tarmac.

It would be nice if they have a water profe thermal removal layer for winter but that's not as important.

Im not sure if I trust most textile trousers for abrasion resistance?  But I need to come to some kind of compromise for traveling short distance's.  While not fully clad in leather ill be keeping speeds down anyway.

Is there anything in the market that will cover all of the above?

Textile trousers.

I think you are asking rather alot from a single garment, hence the lack of replies. However, Wolf Titanium textile trousers might come close. I've just bought the jacket and it is excellent. I might buy the trousers later too but I generally prefer to wear leather ones for best protection.

In the past I tried wearing jeans under Hein Gericke textile trousers but it wasn't comfortable.

I take shoes and trousers to work in a rucksac at the start of the week and I have a locker there. That works for me.
