Comfortable pant, needs hip protection

Great Pants, Good fit. I do wish that there was protection around the hip area. I've been down and that is a spot where you land.

Pants are extremely comfortable and give great protection. Only improvement could be different inseam lengths.

This is my second pair of street cargo pants, and I got the awesomely cool sand color this time. I melted my first pair onto my tail pipe by standing next to the bike reading a map - so be advised that like any cordura nylon product they don't stand up to heat. But I like them so much I got a replacement pair. They are a good mix of decent protection, decent versatility, decent weather management - just do everything pretty well but don't specialize in anything. They are comfortable up to 90 degrees and down to 45 so I wear them a lot when touring. They look enough like normal pants that you can wear them around and not feel overly biker-ish. They are not as comfortable as a pair of jeans for walking but are much lighter than leathers. Not waterproof but fine in a light rain. Basically my favorite all-around riding pants other than a pair of BMW pants that are 2 or 3 times the price.
Good pants but limited protection.

I returned these pants because for the price, I did not think they offered much protection, if any. They are very comfortable to wear, but with minimal protective armor/padding.

Good looking pants. Nice fit, comfortable and durable.

Pretty comfortable to ride in. Haven't been able to see if they are really durable, but hopefully I don't have to.

The Pants fit well and the outside cargo pockets are accessible. The only drawback was I had to send the pants to a tailor and have a 8" zipper placed on the inside of the legs in order to fit over my boots (Alpinestars SM-X plus)

First off, these pants are fairly heavy, especially for having very little protection. The crotch seems larger than it actually is, but they don't seem to ride up too bad and the overall fit is pretty good. All the pockets are deep, but I wouldn't trust the back pockets with anything important. These pants do a great job at keeping you warm and the removable liner is nice for the cold season, but they heat up in the sun, making it somewhat uncomfortable in warmer weather. The price is a bit steep too (2008 model was like $40 cheaper), especially for having only several layers of textile for protection and basic foam kneepads. You can upgrade the knee protection and put the kneepads in the pants instead of on your legs, which is a plus. Not a bad investment for more temperamental climates, and if you have upgraded kneepads or plan on buying some.
