AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants
Coming Apart at the Seams
I really liked these pants at first. The features are great, they have nice airflow and decent protection.
I usually wear a large, but I ordered an XL in case of wearing something underneath or having both liners zipped in. I ordered the right size. Not too baggy, not too snug.
Unfortunately, the crotch seam started coming apart after only a few rides. Then I noticed the seams coming apart by the lower leg zippers too. I've only had these a few weeks, worn them maybe 10 hours total, mild riding, no downs.

GET THESE ON YOUR LEGS RIGHT NOW
I bought these pants for tip through NJ, some of which was off road. I read about 198723 reviews on anything before I buy it and this was no different. Everyone said they run a little small, they kinda do. I'm 6'2" with a 32" inseam. I'm about 220-230lbs depending on the day, and I have a waist of about 36-38". I bought the XXXL pants and was a little worried that they might be too big. They fit perfectly. i thought they felt a little long when trying them on in the living room and was worried that the knee pads were sagging a little low. i started to get that sick feeling like I messed up, I didn't.
So when got on the bike it was a little strange the first time, but it worked out really well. it was between 75-85* outside all three days of my tip and i was completely fine. The airflow in these pants was amazing. They actually insulated my legs and kept the engine heat off my legs, it was awesome.
The padding in these pans is in all the right places. My rear felt great even after 550 miles.
I wore them through some nasty stuff albeit a little tame. they total protected me and kept the thorn bushes at bay. like i said i wore these for three days and was more than comfortable all day the entire time.
The ONLY downside to these pans is the lack of pockets. It has two little ones that seem to be waterproof, but then again, I don't really put a whole lot of stuff in my pockets anyhow, so mute pint really.
I haven't had a chance to wear them wight eh waterproof liner of the quilted liner either, but i imagine they will be just fine based on what I've seen thus far.
GO GET YOU PAIR, DO IT NOW.

Excellent bang for the buck
Fit pretty much matches a jeans measurement. I have a 30 inch inseam and the short cut is perfect with a great placement of the knee armour. Not as cool as you'd hope but I'd rather sweat than bleed anytime

I use these pants to commute to work 3 or 4 days a week. They are versatile, functional, and comfortable commuter pants.
-Ventilation in thighs is good, still comfortable in low to mid 80's F with liners out and vents open. A little too warm in 85+ degree weather.
-Warm in cooler temps with liners in. So far I've commuted home at night in 55 degree weather with the vents closed and the water proof liner in and they were comfortable. At sub 50 degree temps add the thermal liner and you will be sufficiently warm.
-Less dorky looking than a lot of textile riding pants but still obvious looking motorcycle pants
-I've worn them for 1200+ miles of commuting and the quality is good, zippers, velcro stitching etc... are holding up nicely.
-My only real gripe is the knee armor tends to slide inward towards my inner knee leaving the outside of my knee unprotected.
-The hip pads are thin foam, I would suggest replacing them with CE rated hip armor.
I am 5'9/10 and 150/155 lbs.
I bought the mediums and they fit well. There is a little extra room in the waist and the pants have a slightly baggy fit with both liners out but the extra room is necessary when the liners are in. Also, the velcro adjustments at the waist take care of the small amount of extra room in the waist quite well. The length is perfect. Overall a good fit.

Love my first pair of riding pants!
Love my first pair of riding pants. The confidence it inspires over jeans are worth the money I spent alone! I listened to those who reviewed the pants suggesting to order a size up. They were wrong. These are NOT OVERPANTS! They are straight riding pants. They come with two liners. Snug fit when you first wear them with both liners. I'm 5'9",176, wear a size 34/30 jeans. The large/regular fit awesomely! The first pair I ordered were XL, and were too big, and taking them off, I noticed the liner was loose on one side. Seems the fastener was torn. I called Revzilla, and Devin asked for pictures, and within a few hours I had an RA to return, no charge! He also wears the same size as I in pants and made the recommendation to go with the size large/regular. Because of the friendly, and helpful customer service, I ordered the large before returning the XL. I forgot to mention, the shipping was fast as hades. It's only a day to me from Philly to VA! Back to the pants. I'm wearing them with no liners, and just athletic boxer briefs. The athletic boxer briefs don't move around when I'm sliding around in the saddle for 2+ hours. Other drawers bunch uncomfortably. I share that because I wear these as straight pants. It's summer, and I've ridden in 90+ degree heat already. The vents on the pants do work, but it helps that I ride a naked streetfighter. I've worn them for at least 3x a week for a month now, and as far as durability the little rubber zipper handles are cool, and branded, but one as come undone. I found another one on the floor, but don't appear to be missing any off the pants. Must have been from the first pair.
I like that they zipper into my Fulmer jacket. The "armor" or padding can be replaced with more durable, which is cool. The cover my boots even in "the tuck". I actually played basketball in them on fathers day with the kids. Had no idea where I was going there was going to be a half court in the back yard. They were hot as you'd expect in the summer heat, but not uncomfortable. No hotter than sweat pants. I do use the front pockets for a cellphone occasionally, and a leather money clip that has pockets for license and whatnot.
These pants have broken in nicely. I have not ridden in the rain yet, but I doubt I'd need the rain liner? I'm wondering what the pants will feel like with the liners in now that I've broken in the shell?
For the money spent on my first pair of riding pants sub two hundred dollars, I'm elated! As a first time Revzilla customer, I trust Revzilla's customer service and support! Not always the lowest prices, but fast shipping, and great people on the other end to help. I hope this review helps.
Peace, stay up!

Good & bad
The styling and fit of these pants are great. Having 2 separate zip-out layers is very handy. They feel comfortable to wear, and are not too bulky. The downfall is: the zippers. The zippers for the thermal & rain layers are very cheap. The end piece that keeps the zipper from opening... broke off after a couple uses. Not impressed with that. I would have given them a '5' if the zippers were not junk.

I compared these with higher priced pants and these are comparable in quality and performance. I have replaced my worn out high priced gear with this item. I ride year round in all kinds of weather so any thing I use is well tested.
