My Motoport Stretch Kevlar pants, with the low IR heat gain coating, are cooler than jeans, AND provide great protection from abrasion AND with all the tail bone, hip, thigh, shin & knee armor they protect well from impacts.
If you prefer a jean cut and fit, Motoport offers jeans in this material and armor too.
I've grown attached to my skin, understanding that it keeps all those important fluids inside.
Another important concern is that sliding on pavement tugs at clothing. A quick search will show significant skin damage where pants have been pulled down in a slide. I wear suspenders, with the alternative being jacket zippered to pants.
