Here’s my 2 cents worth about heat- I’ve logged roughly 90K miles over the last 7 years, mostly in Texas. Have taken a couple of rides out to Utah, same for Arkansas.
Used 3 bikes to gain that mileage: Octane 23K, Chieftain 51K, and as of today 18K on a Challenger.
….As strange as it sounds I have found riding in insulated pants ( insulated blue jeans) makes the Texas heat bearable. In fact, that’s what I wear year round.

Ok, I have to know... what kind of insulation? I've got insulated jeans but they have a fleece lining. They're great for the winter but when it gets above 55 or so, I ROAST.

I have a pair of Wrangler (RIGGS workwear), pants are 100% cotton while the liner is 100% polyester.
Also a pair of Carhartt (b172 OST), both jean and liner are 100% cotton.
I don’t sense any difference in the two (functionally).
