Welcome
+1 for Hood.
They make them to measure so the fit is good while the cost was just over 100 UK pounds.
So far I wear them without the armour which can be fitted into pockets within the hips and knees. I use the cargo pants for the extra pockets and the velcro flaps secure all sorts of stuff very securely while riding - using them for winter riding, and so far, so good.

Yes, they are. They're brand-new and not on the Polo website yet but I found them in the 2011 catalog (if you happen to have it: page 45). According to the store clerk the new 2011 clothes are bound to arrive in mid March 2011 except for these: the day I went to the store they shipped from the central storage and I was able to pick them up three days later. Together with the older Namib and the also new (and not yet to be found on the website) Tour 2 they're the only non-black pants Polo sells. Louis has one pair, HG only sells black.

I found them on another website, check it out

Not to worry, the website I found is Motorrad, the biggest German biker magazine. They don't sell the stuff, they simply tell you what to get

You'll probably have to wait until mid March anyway.
