AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants
My review after a few months of using it - It does its job.
I don't want to bash these pants all that hard since it is a cheap pair of pants and I could only afford that being in college at the moment. But to really summerize this pair, you could not do a better job than it does what you pay for. The looks are nice and it does block the wind and keep you warm for about an hour on back roads (I had to ride for an hour on back roads for 30 miles from San Diego to my house) at midnight or later. Which, in soCal you are looking at about 40 - 50 degree winter night weather not factoring in wind for an hour. So these were nice for that. Though they stop being comfy for a while after that and I immediately threw out the rain layer as it gets REALLY REALLY baggy otherwise. The pads are really bad and never stuck to where they sound like they were supposed to go and looked like they were loosely put in there. I ended up taking them out after it got really frustrating to try and re-align them, though I could see someone readjusting them permanently with sewn Velcro at the right spots. Air flow is nice enough so during the day it doesn't overheat my legs when I open the vents, and stops incoming air when I close them. Also since this is my first pair of motorcycle pants I don't know what features other pants come with, but for my first buy the zipper locks on pockets was nice so I didn't have to worry about what I was carrying, but they do run small. And the locking system for the waist is really nice; much better than a button or some other fashion of locking things down. One more thing I will say is I run a size 13-13.5 foot depending on the US shoe maker and I do have some trouble getting my foot through the layers sometimes, but overall its not that big of an issue, just something to note.

Looks great, excelent protection!
Really an excellent product. Looks great and excellent protection. It has two inner layers (water proof and warm liner). If you decide to wear all two liners, could be a little bit bulky. My advice: just use over long underwear.

I got these pants for some cold weather riding, and they do not disappoint went out recently in Dec, temp was between 40 and 55, a bit colder with the wind chill, did around 500 miles and I am very glad with this product, haven't had the chance to try them out in the hot weather, they feel a little heavy, with all the liners which is good, knee protection is good, I am 5'8", 170lb, 33-34 waist, went with size large, very good fit and comfort.

Pants seem very well made, they tolerate the cold well. I've ridden in into the low 30's with only shorts on underneath. The size is pretty accurate, I'm about a 34in waist and I got the XL regular length.

Very nice pants for the money but OTB barely
They appear to be a well made product. Like others have said they do run small. The legs are very tight with all the layers in and the otb claim is tenuous at best. I wanted to use these with Alpinestars boots but there is no way to close the zippers around the boots. I got these in 2xl so I would guess the smaller sizes would be even worse otb.

Great ban for the buck
AS for fit I'm 6' 215lb my normal pants size is 36by32. I ordered the 2XL reg size and they fit great. With the liners in they are a little snug perfect fit without liners in. These pants are a slim cut on the legs not like Tourmaster Baggy cut pants. I don't think these pants would be good for over pants. The rear zipper will zipper to a Tourmaster jacket if that important to you. What I like best about these pants in the mesh liner that the pants and waterproof liner have and the venting zippers. Not sure if these pants are water proof probably not with the leg vents? but I don't care about that venting is more important to me and I carry rain gear on my bike anyway.Great bang for the buck!!!

This riding pant rocks!
I was looking for riding pants that would fulfill a few requirements, and these pants fit the bill, and most importantly, they fit me! I'm 5'8, 140 lbs, with a 30" inseam. I purchased the 30 short and they fit me perfectly. Besides good fit, I wanted pants that would protect me better than jeans would, it would need to be breathable yet rain proof in the rare event we get rain in CA, and it would need to be able to keep me warm when it gets cold. This pant covers all the bases for not a lot of coin. I haven't tried out the rain guard yet, but im sure it will do its job :)

Pants that are comfortable and well made.
I'm relieved to say that these pants fit me perfectly. I ordered XL and received them yesterday. Wore them today on my commute. The knee pads are in exactly the right spot for me. I'm 6', 0", 192 lbs. I took out the winter lining since it's not winter yet, but left in the waterproof lining.
On my commute today it wasn't raining, but the pants kept me warm in 50 degrees at speeds of 75 mph.
I'm impressed with the look and feel of the fabric. The zippers feel durable and work smoothly. They are easy to put on and take off. Sitting on the bike was comfortable too.
