AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants
Great Pant for the price!
Bought these pants to commute and ride on weekends with. I am very impressed with their fit and finish. They fit well and work as they should all zippers are robust and both the WP liner and insulation liner can be worn separately. The WP liner is hard to wear above 45 degrees because they don't breath through the liner very well and get quite hot. Overall I think they are a great pant for the price and I would buy them again for sure.

AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants - Black - XL
My first pair of riding pants!
They are bulkier than what I was expecting.
Very good value for the price with good protection & decent airflow.
They aren't as vented as the AGV Sport Solare pants so will have to see how they hold up as the temperature rises.
I bought these over the Solare pants due to some reviews commenting on the quality issues of the Solare pants.
They come with 2 removable liners so you can extend usage when it gets colder.
These pants run a bit on the larger side unlike a lot of AGV Sport apparel.
Based on my waist sizing I was recommended to purchase a 2XL but they were just too big on me.
I returned them for a size XL, which does fit well but with the liners removed the fit is still on the baggy side - I believe a size LG (my usual size) would be perfect.
On the plus side, I can use them as over pants also.
The CE rated knee armour drops down when off the motorcycle but comes back over the knee in the riding position.
The hip pads are very thin pieces of foam that I have since bolstered with a pair of Forcefield hip armour (Forcefield Upgrade Performance Armour - Hip).
They fit over my SIDI Fusion Air Boots.
Definitely recommend as riding pants - excellent value for money!

Summer Winter Rain Pants
I use these pants almost daily on my commute. Cold or rain requires the layered insert and does a good job. In summer I wear shorts or jeans under and pull them off in a minute and no one would know I rode in on a bike.
I mainly use these as over pants so my work attire doesn't get dirty. They are perfect for this, easy to take on/off and comfortable. They look a bit like snow pants but fit the adventure look.

A whole lotta pants for the money
SIZING: I'm 5'9 160lb and wear a 33/30. I ordered these pants in a Large/Short and they fit perfectly, both on and off the bike. They're mighty snug with the liners in, but I can stuff a pair of jeans under just the outer shell.
PROTECTION: Adequate. It would be nice to have kevlar and CE armor in the hips, but I'm not going to go bombing through canyons in these things. The build quality is good so far; no loose seams after ~600 miles.
STYLE: They look awesome, in my opinion. There is no mistaking that they are motorcycle pants. Little bit of reflection going on too. I just wish they came in a lighter color too so I don't bake in the sun at stoplights.
COMFORT: Very flexible thanks to the stretch panels. My skin gets a little clammy under the rain liner. I've found I can install just the rain liner, just the thermal liner, or both at once. With both, these things would feel warm even at tire-crackingly-low temps.
If you want tougher, more capable pants than these, you've gotta go high-tech and high-dollar. If you're on a budget and only need one pair of motopants, get these.

Good cold/cool weather pants
I've ridden in weather down to 39 degrees (Fahrenheit) and have been comfortable. When it gets a little too warm for the liners you get clammy pretty quick, but its not a big deal since they are easily removed. There isn't much room for anything other than long underwear in these pants, so don't plan on wearing your tie dyed jeans underneath. Good bang for the buck.

Good entry level pants.
Purchased these as an all in one adventure riding pant. I'm a 28-29 waist, 30 inseam. Got the small short. A bit loose around my waist. I use some heavy duty suspenders to deal with that, and it's actually nice that way, there's room in the waist but the pants stay put. I previously had a pair of AGV Sport Solare vented pants, and don't recall them being as loose. I suspect its due to these having two zip out liners that, when in the pants, make them quite snug; probably could not or would not want to wear pants underneath with the liner(s) in. Without the liners, I wear lightweight BDU pants underneath, which works well. The vents do a good job at speed, although they probably wont do as much with the rain liner in, which is to be expected. Speaking of the liners, they're definitely not something you could quickly install or remove; you'll just have to plan according to the weather. Overall construction seems well done, haven't had any zipper or stitching failures yet. The hip pads could be just a little higher in the pant, they just barely cover that top part of the femur where you'll likely impact if you go down. The hip pads could stand to be a little thicker as well. Knee pads seem adequate, and are well positioned. Some reviews say they are too low, but I think the pants are meant to sit high on the waist so the lower back pad is in a good position, and that puts the knee pads where you want them while standing and when on the bike. Again, suspenders are helpful here. Overall, I'm satisfied with these.

Great pants for the four seasons weekend warrior.
I've put a 100 miles of cold weather riding on these so far and they have done an excellent job. Down to 20F I was still warm with the thermal and waterproof layers in. Great quality and durability from what I can tell so far. Very comfortable riding, not so much walking(as expected). Armor is comfortable and sufficient for the price. I think these pants are perfect for the less than hardcore riders out there that don't want to break the bank but still want more than jeans protection. Can't wait to test them in warmer conditions AM I RIGHT?!

First set of textile pants. Love them. New rider. So far for price and protection will continue to buy Agv.
