AGV Sport Airtex Pants
CRASH TESTED, Better off in Jeans
Low sided wearing these at 40 mph, they came apart at every seam, knee armor shifted and now I got two giant holes in my knee that I had to get surgery on. Still got rash on both legs and lower back.
Sure they were comfortable and move a lot of air, but what good is that when they don't protect you.

What I Expected
I wear a 33/32 in jeans and ordered a large because I wanted to wear them over jeans. They're a bit snug but will go over my jeans. I didn't plan to take them off every time I stopped somewhere. If you're looking for a pure over-pant that you can throw off quickly, you may want to look elsewhere.
I've ridden about 3 hours in these pants and have really only one complaint. The left knee armor is pretty uncomfortable for me. It eventually will find a home, but until then it's pretty annoying. I'd assume it's just my fit as my right knee has never had a problem. I can probably adjust the left knee a bit to get some more comfort. Just reporting what the out-of-the-box fit was like for me. Walking around these pants are extremely comfortable over jeans.
Airflow feels good. Again, have only worn these over jeans on a 50-60 degree day, but i wasn't sweating or freezing. Mesh seems good for Summer. I'm in TX, so I got these as a 4 (or at least 3.5) Texas season over-pant.
Overall they are what I wanted. Annoying left knee armor for me, but that can possibly be fixed and could easily just be my experience. Not unhappy with my purchase.

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.
