AGV Sport Solare Vented Pants
What you want to know -- how do they fit? I'm 5'11", and weigh 165, with a 33" waist and 32" inseam. The medium fit me perfectly.
How cool are they? I used these exclusively on a recent week-long, 1,555 mile trip through Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio. The week started cold -- in the mid 40s -- and ended in the high 80s, with humidity. So these pants took me through a range of temps. When it was cold I wore a pair of windproof, winter running tights underneath them, and I stayed warm enough. When the temps were warmer these pants breathed pretty well. Didn't have to test them in the rain, although I assume they would be porous -- had rain pants along just in case, that I never had to access.
I was pleased to discover that the rear waistline zipper worked perfectly with a textile jacket made by another brand -- that was handy.
I'm not sure what the care instructions are, but hand-wash, hang dry is what I did to clean them up. Time will tell how they hold up.

Good for the price
I was trying to decide between these and riding jeans. I'm a newbie to the motorcycle world so I figured I'd start with these. Physical appearance they look alright, not to bad. They only gripe I have about them is the knee pad is kind of low on my knee, but when I bend my knee it comes up into place. But I feel like if I ever did fall these would deff protect me . So I'm happy with the buy. I'm about 5'11 190 34 waist and I got the Large and the fit pretty good.

I'm content with this product. Fits nicely and looks cool.
I'm eager to try it in hot weather!

good for the price.
Good pants, wish they would vent a little bit more. Biggest negative is that the inner thigh area is a bit slippery on the bike. I haven't had them for too long, but they seem like they would hold up for a while.
Another gripe, the velcro that goes around your boot, doesn't wrap all the way around, so it continuously will come undone while riding.

Three pairs have ripped at the crotch
I've had three separate pairs of these pants all rip apart at the crotch. Each time I have paid to ship it back to the manufacturer and they have sent me another pair. I'm not exactly overstressing them either, I'm a slim guy and the pants are not too tight on me, and each pair I have only worn for about 10 days before ripping.
I would highly suggest you avoid these pants. The durability issues outweigh their comfort and price. They just won't last for more than a few weeks, and then the price is no longer worth it.

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.
