So, they are big. I bought a 10/short in 2015 and they have lasted me from regular jean sizes 10-16. I've put on some weight and now in normal size 16 jeans but I can still wear my size 10 riding jeans, they are a little snug so i'm gonna buy a pair of these in 12/short but still wearable.
So if you wear 12/14 I'd advise getting a 10. 16/18 probably would fit size 12 of these well.
I was 10/12 when I bought these.. they fit best when I was 12/14 normal jean sizes.
They are warm in the summer but keep me from having to wear chaps in 50 degree weather.
i have fairly large legs(thigh) and it makes buying jeans pretty rough but theses are really comfy.
I recently got into an accident. The bike went down and I was sent rolling across the pavement. Only damage to my skin was in places between my pants and where my jacket covered. The jacket took some serious damage - tearing and rips. But my arms, back, stomach, and shoulders didn't. Extremely grateful for the CE armor protection this jacket provided.
There is only one flaw I have come across and that's after a yr of owning them, the button popped off then a few weeks later the zipper came off line. I have not gained weight since owning them and have worn them as casual pants on top of ride time.I'm not sure if anyone has also come across these issues or if it is just me. But I still love these pants and will rebuild.
