    Go for moto torque. It is the cheapest L2 in market. If you care for armour brand also , go for solace sabre. Which is sestac L2, including the back.

    Rynox Air GT3 is your best bet out of these. Gets Safetech protectors approved to CE level 2.

    Others would be just namesake poor quality protectors. Goodluck.

    I would opt for Rynox Air GT any day. It is a more reliable, level 2 protection, lightweight and has a proper street fit.

    I am looking for a riding pant to go with my Solace Furious(V 1.0) riding jacket and an all weather gloves. Budget is 8k and 3K respectively. Since I've found the Furious to be of very good quality and meeting all my expectations, I'm a little inclined towards Solace Coolpro riding pants. As per my knowledge, it's an underrated product - any users here? Would like to know about any other alternatives from users as well.

    However, it's the all gloves which I am not able to decide - Solace Striker is no longer available. I did not have a very good experience with Spartan Aspida gloves(no offense to the owners). The knuckle protectors have come off after the slightest of touch with water. Any suggestion about a good pair of gloves which can withstand a little rain/water is welcome.

    With pants, honestly there are lots of options out there with most of them almost with similar construction, and some have better armor such as L2.

    Most leather, be it goat or cow, will soften after prolonged exposure to rain and some will even ooze out the dye, which in my case has happened even on a branded European glove.

    Stitch pattern and thread thickness matter a LOT when it comes to a glove's reliability. I'd suggest RYNOX DELTA EVO SC or Inferno FG, secondly I'd strongly suggest Cramster's FLUX. One of the finest glove I've owned, on my second pair after a crash where it completely saved my entire right palm from getting mince. Excellent ventilation. Viaterra too have some decent firepower.


    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Rynox Air GT 3 is the best one among all the option you have given us!
