AGV Sport Solare Vented Pants
Wrecked at 75mph. No injuries!
So the build quality of these pants is hit and miss. the rubber zipper pulls fell off. The crotch ripped and needed mended. and the knee pads seem to not want to stay on your knees. A sporty riding position seems to help with that though.
The good. Very cool pants for the summer, comfy. Reflective stripping is a nice feature.
And despite being mostly mesh, my skin was unmarked following a 75mph wreck on tarmac. So adequate pants for street riding.
I'm getting another pair since my old ones were trashed in the wreck!

knee pad too low
pants are wayyyy to long... the knee pad is no where near the knee and is worthless. The 2XL size does fit a 38 size about right but unless you are 7 foot tall the length will not work.

After a few rides a seam started coming apart. Soon after it happened in an other area. I sent the pants back to the manufacturer (at my expense) for warranty. They approved the warranty, but are out of stock for 3 weeks. I hope this pair lasts longer than the last.

Great pants for the price!
For what you pay these pants are solid. Very breathable, solid knee protection, and the padding around the waist/hip area is not too bad. Im 5'6 150lbs and I got the small, fits perfectly once im on the bike. Got it for non-commuting riding in the summer.

Great hot weather pants for commute
I bought these pants after a co-worker recommended them to me. I am very pleased with them so far, I have worn them all summer in the Vegas heat of temps from 100-115. In those temps, any pair of pants is going to have you sweating at a stop, but these cool you down quick when you get going. The fit is slightly large I wear a size 36 in pants so I bought 36 and the belt straps have to be tightened quite a bit. A few reviews said they tend to tear in the crotch area, I have not had any issues with that, nor fraying in the area, they do run a bit tight down there though. And for less than $100, you can't beat it.

As good as advertised.
Fit me perfectly going by the sizing chart. Plenty of room to zip bottom of legs over tall boots. Cool riding even in temps to 90. Good comfort and protection and quality for the price.

Saved my knees
Did a low side after hitting a deer a couple of weeks ago. Slid and tumbled sideways for about 50 yards. Wore through the outer material into the knee pads on both knees but the pants did their job holding the pads in place and saved my knees. Hip padding might seem minimal but worked well and I have only minor bruising. Wore them during summer riding for two years prior to that and they were very comfortable in the heat and humidity of northern Virginia. Knees pads drop down when off the bike but obviously positioned the pads correctly when riding the bike and/or flying off/sliding after it. Will likely patch and wear again - possibly with contrasting stitching and something other than black for a post-apocalyptic Road Warrior look.

seems good so far
I probably should have gotten the short inseam, but I'm somewhere in between so I'll keep these. I love the adjustability of the waist. I can squeeze into them with a thinner pair of shorts on and use them as overpants if I had to.
The big zippers and large pulls make it extremely easy to work the pockets, which are of a decent size.
I'm slim and most pants usually end up making me look like I'm wearing a snow suit, but these are thin enough in fit (not material) its not as bad as most.Like most pants, the knee/shin armor hangs low when off the bike but fits in nicely when riding.
airflow is really nice and on a cloudy 70degree day I actually felt a bit too cool. some underarmour legging base layer might be in order if I use these in the early fall.
All in all I'm VERY pleased with these..especially considering the price point!
