These over/pants are the best I have used so far. They are a little snug with jeans on, but when I ride with shorts, it is a great fit. I like the fact that they breath as well, so when you're riding you don't getting too hot.

Cuffs not finished but this is only one thing. The fit was bad and the pockets not right. I am still looking for a pair of air pants.

I ordered exactly as specified on the size chart - they were HUGE. Sent them back the next day.

This is my first type of motorcycle pant that I've owned and they are great. I live in Hawaii and wanted something a little more protective than just my jeans alone. The fit is true to size (I wear a 33 waist and bought a 34 which fits great, the inseem is a 34 which is a little long but with boots on it's fine). The ventilation is great over my jeans in my mid to high 80 degree weather, don't really know that I'm wearing them (have not worn them in standing traffic yet). I just wish there were leg zippers so I wouldn't have to take off my boots to get them off. Also I've read reviews about the knee protection being out of place, I find while standing yeah they are low but when on my bike with my knees bent they sit where they should, so no complaints from me. I really enjoy them and having that extra protection.

I use them to commute when it's hot. I don't use them for rides. No way to get the pants off without taking off boots/shoes. The fit is excellent though, and they look good. Belt loops are worthless, but there is plenty of built in adjustment.

I like the outside look of the pants. However, the liner tends to stick out at the ankle. I wish it came out and was not sewn in at the waist.

It's hard to examine an Internet item before buying. Most Motorcycle Superstore items that I've purchased have even better quality than described. But this one is not as good as I expected. The inner mesh lining was only loosely fastened at the cuff and with a few wearings has ripped completely loose in one. Also one knee armor pad got twisted early on, but it has stayed in place recently. I expect more airflow than it has, but that's my fault, not the fault of the description. Overall, I would have expected to pay less for this particular item than I did. This is not the case with all my other purchases from Motorcycle Superstore, which were great values.

These pants are baggy and short, made for pudgy people. This is ironic, because the people buying these are young guys on sport and urban bikes, generally athletic (but oftentimes short). I'm 6'4 and, while riding, the longest pair leaves my legs exposed about 4 inches ABOVE my boots. Since they're baggy the pads don't stay in the right place.
Great for hot days

I don't use these as overpants, so ordered a size down, they fit relatively well. In the early morning they get a little too breezy, but wearing a thermal layer rectifies that. I love the cargo pockets and the zip up pockets. great pants overall

Although everyone has said how cool these are, I was unable to notice a difference the 1st time I used them. I'm considering cutting down the inner liner to allow more airflow. I'm wearing them over shorts and the added protection is exactly what I was hoping for, I was just hoping for a little more air movement. Be cautious when ordering, the temperature difference is not very different from wearing jeans, but they do allow the flexibility to show up some place with shorts on underneath.
