Yeah like Simon said I don't really ride in the winter. I have been out in 40f with just the pants and no liner though and since they are pretty wind resistant it didn't get too cold. I guess i misunderstood the question.  I didn't realize it was about winter riding in particular. I thought the reason was because the pants would become slightly bigger and baggier without the liner and that you felt it might become an issue with the protection moving around or something.

The sizing is also part of the question- I'm kind of in the middle of the size range with off the rack offerings- For example I can fit in a large or medium, (Depending on manufacturer) but in the medium is to snug with the liner in
but fits perfectly without, and the large fits comfortable (just slightly loose) with the liner in, but like a tent without....
With my mediums I can get away with sweatpants as the liner when riding in 45-50degree F, and under 45F is just to cold
just wanted to see if anyone knew of a piece that is similar thermal barrier as the OEM but with a slimmer fit (base layers like long underwear is not adequate)

Have a look if you can find a local Cycle Gear, I use a FreezeOut long john from them.

I ride right through the winter, my recommendation is to wear a Merino wool base layer.

They’re cheaper from hiking/outdoor stores than motorcycle specific outlets

Hamburg, Simon
This all you wear under your riding pants with the liner removed?

I wear the same perforated Dianese leather pants and Alpinestars perforated leather jacket all year. Above 40f I am good with no pant liner(I get enough wind protection), below 40f I wear the Freeze out(If I actually ride!!!!). For the top, below 50f heated jacket liner(Gerbring), 50f-70f windproof liner.

But I will add that I have some un-removable permanent insulation!!!!

Got it Thank you- Thats typically how I layer up for winter, trying to find a solution to delete the OEM liner for a couple reasons
In other words trying to find something that will act as a base and mid layer as 1 piece of garment

LOL!!! Noted
Checked my local CG for the freeze out gear- they have everything but the pants ??? I guess due to the chip shortage a few things are on extended back order
