AGV Sport Shadow Riding Jeans
After reading reviews, I bought a size larger than I would normally do. I did not realize that fit is slightly more lose, thus I am wondering if I should had ordered my regular size. At any rate, I am not complaining, I would rather be comfortable on the bike, instead of being all stuffed up.

Great pants but came belt loops broken
Revzilla really needs to check their product before shipping it out!! The pants belt loops where broken and not worth shipping back for cost of shipping to exchange. Was very disappointed in rev. Besides that the pants fit and feel great. Deff have to go up a size as they fit small. They are very baggy so u have to like that style to like the pant. Good protection also. Besides cheap stitching, the pants are nice.

Well made. Comfortable Jeans!
I recommended this product to my friend. These jeans are very comfortable. They are loose fit jeans which makes riding more comfortable even with the Kevlar lining.

Bang for the buck but fits small and the next side will be like Parachute Pants !!! tight in the waist and the rest is way baggy.

Depends on your definition of "Relaxed Fit"
These are not exactly what I'd call "relaxed fit"... more like "hip hop baggies". But if you are OK with that, these are pretty good pants and good value.
The fit in the waist and the length are spot on, same as my normal jean size (36x34) and the pockets are deep and generous. They are actually super comfortable being baggy, so I decided to keep them and put up with the odd looks from my pals! The upside is that there's plenty of room if you want to put armoured shorts and knee protectors on, and wear full moto boots under them, no one will ever know!
The kevlar inserts seem generous enough, and are pretty consistent with the other kevlar jeans I've owned. I do have a slight concern that the kevlar reinforced impact areas might not actually stay where you need them at crunch time just because they are so baggy and have so much fabric that could move/twist around under duress.
But if you're ok with a very relaxed relaxed fit, then these are a good buy. I personally don't like the style, but I have to admit they are comfy, so I'm OK with this pair, but I won't be ordering another.
(On the same order, I also ordered the Excursion Cargo Pants in the same brand and size, and had to send them back as they were way too small in the waist, so be aware, there is some inconsistency in sizing from this manufacturer between styles.)

Comfortable After I Got Used To Them
I got these pants along with the Malibu. I'm a solid 32x32 in regular jeans, but a 32" waist in both AGV jeans was almost impossible to button. I traded them in for a 34x32 and they're both just slightly loose in the waist.
The Shadows are more of a modern relaxed fit. The legs are only slightly loose and the waist line to crotch area is a little smaller than I like. After a couple hours though I finally got used to them and now they're super comfortable. They were already broken in and extremely soft.
They're about two to three times the weight of regular jeans, but indoors they don't feel any warmer. They're also longer, probably by a couple inches, and probably to keep your ankles cover while riding. A couple riding buddies of mine couldn't believe they were Kevlar. They looked "too cool to be riding jeans."
The only negative I can think of would be the sewn on plastic buttons both on the wist and back pockets.

"one size fits all"
The legs were too long. Kevlar below the knees. So I had to fold and sew the legs above the knees 2 inches. Then fold and sew the hem 2 inches. They still drag the ground in the back. Had to add Velcro at the bottom because the diameter of the leg opening is quite large.
These pants are made "one size fits all" so they may have to be modified?
