Textile Pants

So I have decided that I am getting tired of spending the summer fun rides sweating in leathers and I am finally going to get some textile pants. I have an Alpinestars textile jacket, and figured I'd get a pair of pants to zip to it. Looking on the Alpinestars website, it looks like there are 2 different Air-Flo pants. An "ACR Air-Flo" and just "Air-flo". The ACR appears to be a little different in construction and has a waist that zips to a jacket, whereas the "air-flo" doesnt seem to zipper to a jacket. I'd prefer a zip-to-a-jacket option. However, I have yet to find a vendor that sells the "ACR" pant. So, I have a couple of questions:

1) Does anyone know anything about the ACR pant? And,if so, who actually sells them?
2) For those that own the Air-Flo textile pant, what are your opinions of this product?

Anybody got any plugs for any other moderately priced textiles with decent protection that I wont dehydrate myself in?

I have a pair of First Gear textile pants. They zip into my jacket(not same brand) and have great airflow and armor. Haven't tested them on the pavement yet (fingers crossed), but they look to do the trick. Brand new on Ebay for 80 bucks.
