not sure if this is true... but i had heard somewhere that kevlar lined jeans are better for slides and textile are better for impact (since they typically have armor in them). i would imagine regular leathers (chaps and pants) are only good for slides since they offer no impact protection. leather track pants (typically with knee pucks) do have armor but are prob very hot in the summer.... and who wants to spend $500 on pants you only wear when it less than 70 deg out. each seems to have a trade off. more protection = discomfort/higher price.
