AGV Sport Solare Vented Pants
I've only used those on a couple of rides and so far I am very happy with the purchase. They look good, seem to be well made, and flow a lot of air. Mesh looks solid, but I am yet to see how the stitching will hold up.
I still consider myself a beginner and I do take my protection seriously, so for longer rides I put on shin/knee guards and a pair of armored shorts, taking the armor out of the pants of course, and they fit very comfortably. They also flow quite a bit of air even with my additional protection on.
A bit shorter than I would have liked, but they don't ride up as much as my jeans do (sport bike riding position). I am 6'2", around 200lbs, jeans size is usually 32x32 (skinny legs). I went with size L and I am pretty happy with the fit, a bit loose around the waist, but the adjustment velcro tabs work well.
For the money, I'd definitely recommend.

Great pants for warm weather.
Love these pants.I wear 34 waist 32 length pants and the large are a perfect fit. I was wondering what to do because I am not sold on Kevlar jeans,so for me this is a great compromise.I can wear long johns when a little colder and my Columbia rain pant's over when I want to cut the wind.I live in the Yukon weather changes hourly.Thank you revzilla.

I've been looking for some Mesh/Textile overpants for a while to use while riding into work and wear over my work pants. I ended up ordering one size up from the normal 32" waste that I usually wear. One size up fits very well with the dress pants and jeans that I've worn underneath. The knee armor does slip down a bit while walking with the pants on, but once on my bike they shift to exactly where they should be.
Only issue I've had with these pants so far is that the 8" zipper on the back does not work with my AGV Leather Jacket. The zippers on both my AGV jacket and pants go in the same direction.

Not good for big legs.
I have muscly thighs and a thinner waist. I have a problem finding normal jeans so these were even worse. Sitting on the bike, my gentlemen's area it squeezed very uncomfortably but the waist is loose. The knee pads sit so low that I feel they are not going to help me at all in a crash. They are better than just wearing jeans but they are not comfortable or attractive. The breath great however.

The pants vent well, that's for sure. I'm pretty skinny... 6'1" 160lb. I wrench the waistline velcro pretty tight to keep them up while walking around. There is velcro in the fly to keep the flap of the fly shut, protecting the zipper from your tank. That velcro does not seem to be sewn in place very sturdily, and I plan to have someone sew it in better so that I'm not worrying about the velcro pulling up. Overall, I really like the pants and would encourage my friends to buy them.

I am 6'1 220 lbs 36" waist a d the extra large fit very good, the legs are a little long but the fit is good none the less. I can wear these with basketball shorts underneath or jeans if I choose to but I bought these for the ventilation so shorts will be the best for the under layer. Love the zipper pockets. Can't say anything wrong about these other than don't think twoce about these.

pant looks ok , the feel when wearing it its itchy , and way to tight on the hips u can barely go on your bike cause its to tight your legs wont spread the way it suppose to be , my boot fits really good inside the pants ,

I bought these so that I have a nice breathable outer layer to wear on the trip to and from running. They fit a little tight with pants on, but with shorts underneath they fit great and have excellent air flow. I would suggest buying one size up if you are planning on consistently wearing pants underneath them.
