Pants for summer? Knee pads and hip protector?

Ok, I need summer pants:
I always use a helmet and armored jacket, and during the cooler months, riding pants with knee and hip protection.

Summertime I've just been wearing jeans, but really want to have knee and hip protection. I'm not interested in the Kevlar jeans. I want real knee armor. I've gone down before, and can attest to what would have happened without knee and hip protectors.

So here is the question: What type of summer pants will work in +90 degree weather? I need to be able to pull them on over my boots. I bought several pairs, both of which work great in winter, but not summer.

Is there any manufacturer that makes lightweight gear with embedded armor for knees (and hips, preferably)?

What does everyone else use?

Thanks!

Re: Pants for summer? Knee pads and hip protector?

Why not get strap on knee/shin armor, it stays in place better then pants with built in armor. I have Dainesse Knee V E1 N guards and they work great. I just wear them under riding jeans but can be used under any overpant. I'm not a fan of textile pants so I stay away from overpants. Your only other option is leather since you don't want kevlar jeans. They also make armor shorts you can slip on under your pants as well.

Your best friend in summer is proper base layers, your going to sweat it is unavoidable, but quality base layers keep you comfortable.
