AGV Sport Solare Vented Pants
Ordered size LG pants.
The fit is good, although a bit short for my long legs. Fine when standing, but on the bike the pants ride up and there is a gap between my pants and boots. Most motorcycle gear is made for people of average height, so this is not a knock on these pants. Overall I really like the look and feel. Great for summer as they provide excellent air flow. The quality is rather good, minus the infamous crotch seam coming apart. I have this issue and plan to stitch it up.... altho on second thought maybe I'll just wear them until it looks like I'm wearing crotchless chaps;) Ladies and Rob Halford will love it!

Goood bang for the buck
The fit of the pants are true to your waist size. And they have adjustable Velcro straps at the waist if you want them to be tighter as well. The pants fit a bit slim so it makes it a bit harder to get on and off the bike because the crotch area is tighter.
The knee pads sit a bit low when standing and feel like they move around too much, but I guess when your on the bike it will sit in the right place. Length was good,
I am 5'7" and 150lbs, I got a medium short and fit was good other than the knee pads moving around.
When I first took them out of the box, it didn't feel like it would provide much protection in a slide, but if it says 600d cordura then I guess it should. Not sure about the durability or if the material will hold up in a slide, but it is better than jeans I guess.

Best pants you can buy for its price
Very very comfortable, good protection.
Consider one size up.

These are some nice pants with good protective in them. Diffidently better than just wearing jeans. I did notice the liner rubbing on my knee cap and making it kind of uncomfortable. This could be because they fit me a little tight in the legs, but this doesn't bother me. Just remember if you do buy these, that there is no rain protection on them.

One of the best looking riding pants
I really love the style of these pants. They fit a slightly big for me. I ordered a Large and they are a tad bit of too big. But overall I love riding with these. Definitely give me a sense of security with the integrated knee pads

Really like the look but big thumbs down.
I really like the way these pants fit and look. I also have the H2O Telluride and have been very happy with them other than some slight seam separation in the crotch. The Solare flow air very well however have totally come apart at the seams after a couple hours of riding in the crotch area as well as the hip. Like everything else but cannot recommend due to poor seam quality. Hope AGV will address the issues (seams) then we will have a quality product.

Poor Quality/Design! Steer clear.... Look elsewhere.
Bought this pants after seeing some good ratings and reviews here.
PROBLEM: I had fraying show up in crotch area in less than 2 hrs of riding since purchase. Seems like quite a lot people have been getting that problem. Would definitely not recommend this product. A ~$100 pants that frays (leaving a sizable hole/gap in the crotch area) in less than 5 hours riding is neither worth its "low" price nor acceptable. I am sure there are better products that will last longer than that for under $100. That seems like a BIG quality/design issue that AGV should correct.
Does anyone know what the warranty is on this product? and how to go about getting a refund or replacement (esp those who have the same problem as me)? or am I stuck with this "defective" product?
