AGV Sport Corsica Riding Jeans
Good bang for the buck
Protection: These pants are thick and seem like they will hold up in a slide. Fortunately, I have not yet had to test its durability, but It's got the Kevlar lining on the inside which covers the knees and the hip. I think it's also got pockets for additional knee protection but I have not really figured out how to get to them.
Fit: In terms of fit, this fits pretty small. I'm 6 feet, 185lbs, I usually wear 34x32 in regular jeans so I ordered 34x32 in these as well. But these jeans are pretty tight around the thighs and crotch. It's sometimes a little cumbersome to get my leg over my bike. I think if I got them much bigger though, the legs would be too baggy for my liking... Anyways, just order a couple sizes up if you don't mind having some more room in the lower legs.
Style: The color looked okay online, but in person, the color of the jeans remind me of 90's moms jeans, LOL. It's got a really blue color and it's not faded anywhere to give it some modern taste to them. But I only wear them on the bike so not a big deal for me.
Overall: Seems like a good bang for the buck deal. Thick heavy jeans with Kevlar lining gives me more confidence over regular jeans in case of a fall/slide. But the fit and style is not the greatest. I'd give it 3.5 out of 5.

Overall, decent! Fit is tight, especially if you want to include the armor. I normally a 30/30 (at the largest width) and actually went to a 32/30. Fit perfect with some hard knee armor underneath. The fit is such that I think the manuf made them true to size, if you didn't have the Kevlar...
Airflow wise, it's wearing a double layer of pants, but I'd rather be warm and safe than cool and vulnerable...
The pants I got were zipfly and not button, so I think they updated the pants.

First off, I have to say that these jeans do not appear to be modeled (in terms of sizing) off any standard brand like Levis or Wrangler. They are odd. I normally wear a 34/34, so I ordered a 36/36 based on other reviews. They fit low on the hips and tight in the crotch. The 36 leg was a little to long also. Too, I am slender and the legs are on the tight side. The button fly is a pain, should have been a zipper. The one other thing that nags me about these jeans is removing them. Because the inner lining is not stitched down at the end of the cuff, my heels catch it and I almost rip the lining out. All in all they aren't bad for the price, but I wouldn't buy another pair. If real comfort is your priority, spend a little more and get something with a standardized fit.

Spend a while looking for a pair of riding jeans that had Kevlar in more then just the knees. Fit true to size as well. I wear a 33/32 and ordered a 34/32. Just have to wear a belt and they work great.

Great Casual Jeans with Kevlar Protection
I've had these jeans for a month now and I'm thoroughly pleased with them. If not for the little "Kevlar" tag sewed into the back pocket seam, no one would know they were motorcycle pants. Very stylish and extremely comfortable.
Many reviewers have noted that these jeans ran very small. I normally wear a 32 or 33 waist and I like my jeans slim fitting so I ordered a pair of 34 and a pair of 36. The 34 fit great with a belt and the 36 were way too big. I don't think these jeans are cut drastically small, but like many Italian/European clothes they are cut slim. Order one size up and you should be fine. Don't know how they will do in the hotter months as they do seem a bit heavier than regular jeans. We'll see when summer gets here.
As I said, these are the most stylish Kevlar-lined jeans I have found. I'd put them up against the Dainese's and Alpinestars any day of the week and they are half the price of these other lines. People are genuinely surprised when I tell them these are Kevlar-lined motorcycle pants. The legs are almost straight cut and look good over boots. I can also tuck them in my engineer boots with no problem. My only complaint is that they come in only one color.
I hope I never have to test the Kevlar construction in these jeans but the lining seems quite sturdy and well-stitched. There seems to be adequate lining in all the necessary areas. There are also pockets for armor in the knees. I tried the knee pads from my Moose pants the jeans were still comfortable.
All in, this is a great option for jeans with protection and I would highly recommend them. In fact, I'm ordering another pair myself.
- Great Looking
- Great Fitting

Order 2 sizes larger!
I am 6'0 / 198 lbs. Flat tummy but medium muscular build. XL shirts. I wear 505 in 34x32 and they fit me perfectly. Based on other reviews I ordered the AGV Corsica in 36x32. The AGV waist size 36 is about equivalent to the 505 waist size 34 but still the AGV jeans are extremely tight on the thighs. They would marginally work on my 1200GS ADV (upright seating) but are impracticable on my K1300S (sport oriented position). My 17 year old son wears 505 32x32 and the AGV 36x32 fit his legs nicely and are just a bit wide at the waist. Since he rides too, I gave them to him. It seems that I will need a 38x32 to be comfortable in the thighs and it will probably be a bit wide at the waist. I never had this sizing issue before and I do not have weightlifter legs, so it seems to confirm that the AGV Corsica are cut really really tight. Order 2 sizes larger unless your legs are on the skinny side in which case you will probably be OK with 1 size larger...
I also got a pair of Icon D3O Knee Pads and they fit well and are essentially invisible in the AGV Corsica, hence you can have good protection while still being business casual.

Well made and stylish.
Comfortable and good looking jeans with good protection. I used other reviews here to try to gauge my correct size and decided on a 36x36. They are still a bit tight. Should have been 38x36. I am 6'3 and weigh 185lb. Apart from that,great buy. I would return it for the correct size, but I live in South Africa and the postage costs don't make it worth my while.

Not what I was expecting
They do not look like normal looking jeans in my opinion unless you're trying to bring the Wrangler rodeo cowboy look back. In that case, you're better off on a horse than a bike/ They were far different from the photos which is why I was a bit surprised when I saw them. I was expecting them to be a bit dark and more slim fitting than how they actually were.
I guess I could now see why Revzilla chose not to do a video review of the jeans due to it's looks. In terms of protection, it does seem that it well constructed and will be skin saver in a fall. Had the jeans been a bit more modern- slim fit, a more raw denim look- I think I would have kept them, but it just didn't match the look I was going for. I rock a Biltwell Gringo with a lite mirror bubble shield, Aerostich elkskin gloves, custom brown Icon Super Duty 3 boots, and a Tobacco brown Roland Sands Ronin Jacket along with my Red and white custom Triumph Scrambler Cafe. With that said, these will be going back. I could see these jeans working with the cruiser crowd, but they were just not my cup of tea.
