Can't go wrong with LD Comfort tights or riding shorts.  May be expensive but well worth it and a US company.

I ordered a pair of the LD Comfort tights as well as a pair of the CycleGear heatouts to check them out against the Texas heat this summer.  No doubt they will both work, but wanted to see how each would wear against the Motoport kevlar mesh. :beerchug:

I haven't had a chance to ride since I bought mine.

Post up when you get 'em tested.  I'll do likewise.

Kinda curious.

I was going to say something dumb like, wear underwear underneath...  But then a more practical answer came to mind.  Have you thought of the REI convertible pants?  They are lightweight and dry quickly if they get wet.  The bottom half of the leg unzips if you want to have shorts on.  And the way they designed the lower half, you don't have to take off your boots to remove them.

I guess I am a bit confused as to what people are feeling. I have stretch on the rear and kevlar mesh in the front. I don't feel any of the mesh with the material on the inside and the armour in place , I wear basketball length shorts and knee high UnderArmour All Sport socks with Forma Adventure boots. Where is it you are feeling anything? The fabric they use between the Armour and my skin is soft.

I have three pair of what I  call "hiking pants" (like the REI convertible pants) that I  wear for this purpose. Sierra Trading Post  is a good online price alternative  to REI. I wear HeatOuts under those. I'm currently looking for some thin, over the calf wicking socks. I have thicker wicking boot socks from BassPro (Red Head brand) for the summer.
