I initially liked the style of this jeans until I tried them on for the first time. I wear a 38" waist, however, the thighs were so tight that when I returned them for a 40" waist to adjust to the thigh discomfort. I was scared and ended up buying a size 42 waist instead. Needless to say, the thighs fit great now, but I have to wear my belt really tight to make the waist fit.
I have an older pair of SLIDERS kevlar jeans which would be great if the pockets were a little deeper and there were two more belt-loops at the back. I tried the SCORPION COVERT JEANS because of the advertised increase in kevlar area. I made the mistake of washing them right after receiving them instead of inspecting them, and discovered that while the SLIDERS JEANS had thick substantial kevlar, the material purporting to be kevlar in the SCORPION COVERT JEANS was very very thin and stretched as easily as a cheap t-shirt.
These are good over pants and generally they fit pretty well. They are a little snug over jeans with a leather belt, but fit nicely over a light weight pair of shorts. Good adjustment in the waist, so if I had to do it again, I might order a size up. Zippers go about 2/3 up the leg, which is nice for getting in and out with boots and long pants on.
Great pants--I like them..feel good about the added security of construction and added armor without going to full out racing armor..the only real criticism is the pockets are just to small..i had a tailor add 2 inchs to the depth of front pockets...now my stuff stays where it belongs..
