What to wear under your leather pants?

So i was looking at Bilt Stay Cool Long Johns

http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product...hns/web1010129

as something to wear under my new-ish leather pants. The pants themselves are fairly comortable but the knee area is tearing up my knee's. So I was looking for something to wear underneath that would perhaps provide a tad protection for my knee's but also not be too bulky. I also was looking into the Dainese Norsorex Pants but their pretty pricey IMO.

Curious is anyone else has some recommendations for something like this and or wouldn't mind sharing what they wear underneath their leathers. (provided it's SOMETHING )

+1 for merino wool. Icebreaker is good. So is smart wool. Merino is a great material. Keeps you warm, doesn't stink, great stuff.

I finally wore out my "RedHead " silk long johns(top and bottoms). Good for those cooler days as well as the hotter ones. Leathers just slid off after a long day of plating in the hills.
