Especially in Thailand 'khao' is used in place names, so it should come as no surprise that both the Khao Air Lady pants and jacket are equipped to perform optimally in high temperatures, while being able to withstand a bit of humidity. Even when it comes in the form of a heavy shower.
This combination is not obvious, so they designed a pair of windproof pants with a waterproof, removable membrane. The Khao Air Lady-motorcycle pants of Modeka consists of about 50% tear- and abrasion resistant polyamide (450D), supplemented with 50% mesh. The abrasion-resistant elements count double on the critical areas - where you most need good protection. Underneath these summer pants, you can easily add a water and windproof Humax® membrane. Ventilation zippers are not necessary.
What else do you get? Two zip pockets, two velcro cargo pockets and quite a lot of individual customization possibilities for what looks at first glance like very simple pair of pants. Two press buttons below the knee, two just above, a long instep zipper (easy with or without membrane!) and a velcro strip at the bottom. A central closure with button-and-slider, on top a zipper and finished with two adjustable velcro straps with loop. And an elastic waist. Fine accordion strips above each knee and above the seat, for extra wearing and seating comfort. This same seat has plenty of anti-slip material attached.
As simple as it seems - "summer pants, right" - it is not. Not at all. Especially when you consider that the waterproof but breathable Humax® membrane is pleasantly lined and therefore surpasses most of its peers. Add to that the YF-knee protectors, the option to fit a good hip protector and the possibility to fit these Khao Air Lady-pants by means of the connecting zipper to the jacket of the same name, and you're there.
This is - especially when it comes to price/quality ratio - an absolute winner.
Khao means 'mountain' or 'rice’, depending on the place in Thailand you ask about it.
