Default practical lightweight overpants

After a bad experience being stuck in the city at 3 am looking for a place that would let me use there bathroom so i could change into my textile pants... im out shopping. I need something for this upcoming weather and easier to get on/off. something I can quickly zip over my jeans, and lightweight enough I can roll it up tight and throw in my bag.

so I guess a pair with the following:

1. lightweight, for spring/summer riding. to cut the wind.
2. ZIP over jeans easily
3. portable
4. no armor or insulation ( wear knee pads and need it compact )

thats it.... THANK YOU!

Forgive the ignorance, but if you don't what armor or insulation, what purpose do these pants serve? (why cut the wind when it's hot?)

What about pants from a rain suit? There's always Aerostich, a number of options there, but all come with (removable) armor...

shouldve explained more. I dont need armor becuase I wear knee armor underneath. And I dont want a liner because that adds bulk and I think liners are mainly for when its winter like temps.

im gonna update what im looking for because i realized theres more...

1) full leg zip overpants
2) lightweight
3) no liner
4) no armor or removable
5) waterproof

its hard finding an overpant without a liner that is still waterproof. And on top of that lightweight enough to be rolled up.
