AGV Sport Airtex Pants
Great but be careful on the sizing.
These are great looking pants and good value for your money. Lots of airflow. The only thing I didn't like was the sizing. Going off of the size chart I ordered a medium. I wear a 34 and couldn't even button them. Had to send them back. Luckily revzilla is awesome about returns. I exchanged them for a large and its a tight fit but manageable. Cannot use the side tightening straps have to leave them undone.

Good look, good feel
These pants feel and look great both on and especially off the bike. My only complaint is that the lack of elastic above the knee means that the pant hem rides up above the top of regular shoes or short boots while riding in a dualsport/street bike posture leaving your ankles exposed. Other than that, these fit, feel and look great.

Used these on a recent trip to Colorado. They were great. Only shortcoming is they are a bit short for me, i think they list at 32 " which allowed them to ride up on my boot.
With the liners in, they are super warm and dry.

Great pants for the price, good balance of airflow and protection
These are great and stylish pants. After going across the US and wearing them for roughly 5000mi, I can confidently say I've tested them thoroughly. I've gone down twice in these, and both times I got up without a scratch.
- Pockets are waterproof even when you remove the waterproof liner. (very important when you're caught in a sudden downpour and don't want to strip down to your underwear on the side of the road to put on the waterproof liner)
- Knee pads slide below your knees when you're standing and don't get in the way of walking, I played basketball wearing these with no issue.
- Great airflow when you want it, and great wind-blocking with the liner when you don't.
The only things I wished were better:
- NO BUTT PADS, please add butt padding pockets or make it come with butt pads in the next iteration
- seams by the pockets wore out quickly, had to get it sowed back (but it was only a minor tear and I used these heavily)
- more reflective strips, these pants only have 3

Over all style and features are nice. I have a 32 inseam and I find that these are a little short. I am a 34 waist and 32 inseam and got the Large based on the chart, video would have had me leaning towards the Med. but thankfully I did not watch that till after I ordered. Over all they are good, but again legs could use an inch or 2 more at the bottom.

These Pants are great at a price you can't beat
Watch the overview video on revzilla about these pants, it will tell you eveything you need to know. These pants are VERY comfortable. I wear them everytime I ride and have no complaints. I bought these pants because I wanted overpants that did not look very baggy like the others. These are very good looking when going into public places after/during your ride when you are not on your bike. These feel like they will offer great protection if I am to wreck and they are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I wear combat boots when I ride and the only downside to these pants is that I have to take my boots off to take the pants off. Not a big deal, just wish I had boots with a zipper on the side. The waist is very adjustable, so if you are concerned about side, get the right length and you will have plunty of room to tighten it around your waist.

Great for the price.
I've been riding around in these for a couple of weeks now and so far they are great. The only small complaints are the reflective piping in the knees area rubbed off on the sides of my motorcycle but a microfiber towel took it off. The knee pads take a little getting used too. I've worn them over jeans and shorts and work well as an over pant. Breathe well. I've been in 92 degree heat and don't notice it until I've come to a stop. Zippers tuck away so no worries about scratching the paint. I can't say how they hold up on the ground. Hope I never find out. I'm 5ft 9in 150lbs 32in waist 31in in seem. The medium-sized fits perfectly with plenty of adjustability in the waist.

Covered at last!
I bought these pants in February (Virginia) figuring I'd be able to suffer in the cold for the next few weeks until the temperatures reach the warmer levels that these pants were designed for. Prior to these pants I was just wearing ski pants over my work slacks on my daily 35-mile-each-way 90% highway commute, which left me warm but totally unprotected from the waist down in the event of a 'get-off'. Now, with these riding pants I wear more layers, but I am almost as warm AND protected. Now it's Boxers + Thermals + Work pants + AGV Pants.
Here goes my cold-weather review of these pants:
These pants come with a super thin liner on the inside. This liner will not keep you warm or keep the wind off of you in the colder temperature ranges. You will need to wear a windproof layer over these pants or a thermal layer under them cold days #both on the coldest days#.
Protection, Fit, and Quality:
I have not crashed yet with these pants on, but they do feel durable and have good knee and hip protection. Bottom line, I feel protected when wearing these pants. The size is true to the manufacturer's scale. I did not find them to run larger or smaller than advertised. I wear a size 34-36 pant normally and the XL fits perfectly over my pants. The legs provide adequate space for my work pants even with the Reissa Liners in. The adjustable cuffs at the ankles can be tightened around my boots and do not move whatsoever while on the bike. The knee pads are substantial and rest exactly where they should while riding. They sag a bit #as expected# when standing. The craftsmanship seems to be top notch and I haven't encountered any loose stitching or defects. The hook-and-loop strips on the zipper and the ankles seem to be securely attached and don't look like they will start pulling apart.
This is the subjective part, but these pants look good to me. They are not overly baggy for motorcycle pants and they don't look like space-pants. They do not flap around while riding at highway speeds. The reflective piping is not obviously visible unless there is a light shining directly on them, but whey they light up they really stand-out. I feel that the black on black look is less juvenile and 'look-at-me' than the two-tone option so that's what I went with. No regrets.
For cooler weather, these pants are great if you layer up to enhance the wind resistance and warmth retention. I am confident that during warmer weather these pants will become much more comfortable. I am happy with the purchase of these pants and don't see why anyone would need anything more from a pair of motorcycle pants. Great bang-for-buck factor. Buy a pair!
