Can't ride without them!
This product looks good and fits well when in the riding position. I wouldn't say you could walk around with them on for a while. Maybe a stop to eat or rest for a short period of time. Other then that there a great buy and I feel safer as a rider wearing them. I'm 5'9 155 athletic build - purchased the mediums and they fit fine, slightly fitted around the thighs and .5 to 1 inch long while standing. But get into the riding position and everything falls into place! Great to have the two yes two liners available depending on weather conditions. Not sure if the quad vents work well as it's just getting chilly here in NY. I'm sure without the liners in and the vents open it will work great. Safe riding! And don't forget the wave!

I purchased these pants in February of 2013 and now in November they have a hole worn through the fabric in the crotch. I have also had multiple issues with the zippers and am currently in contract with AGV Sport to try to get the pants replaced. Also the fit is really weird. Tight in the waist and thighs but really baggy from the knee down.

Pretty good pants for the price
168lbs. 5'11", 32" waist. Ordered a size large.
I read reviews saying the legs fit tight, which is true so I thought I would buy a Large. The waist on the Large is loose on me, while the legs are tight-ish (with both layers in). It is slightly harder to flat foot my bike with these pants on which I can do easily with jeans on. These pants are good for touring if you don't have to bend your legs too much to use the foot pegs. With all layers in I wouldn't be able to wear pants/shorts. With no layers in I can fit a pair of shorts comfortably. The thermal layer doesn't run the full length of the legs so with my low cut boots my ankles do get some exposure to the wind. "In regards to the inseam length, it is the same between the Medium and Large (about a 32)." I don't know if the legs fit the same between M and L but if they do then I would recommend someone with 32" waist get the Medium. I am use to wearing jeans when I ride so it will take some time for me to get use to wearing riding pants. But I think they will be good.
I don't have warm weather experience but they easily keep me warm in cold with all layers in down to 40F (except around my ankles like I mentioned above). I bet I can wear them when it gets to 30F but that is yet to be tested.

Some issues, but a nice pant.
I initially ordered these in a size large based on the sizing chart. I had to return them as i couldn't even get my leg over the bike they were so tight. After Revzillas easy and awesome exchange process, I soon had a pair in XL. The XL's seem a little large where the L was too small. I wish there was an in between size, but outside of a custom suit, I can't imagine how that would be possible. I would echo the sentiments of another reviewer who wishes that the knee pads had a way of being adjusted inside the pad pocket as they seem to reside further down my shin than is comfortable or desired. I have to reach down and hitch up the lower leg/knee area before starting my ride and after about 30 minutes of riding as well.
I rode to/from work a couple of times in these (an 80 mile round trip), and in 26* F weather (using both the water/wind liner and the quilted thermal liner) they were perfectly warm and comfortable. My next ride was a bit wet with conditions varying from an irritating drizzled to a moderately steady rain in 50*-60* temps (using just the water/windproof liner). Unfortunately the ride was wet inside the pants as well. The pants leaked significantly, close to where the front thigh vents are located( but not directly under them oddly enough), but more towards the inside of my thighs. Also, when sliding the pants off my legs, one of the legs of the liner pulled out all of the way (I had already taken my boots off, and I was pulling the pants off from my foot end after pushing them down past my knees from the top). Upon closer inspection, the elastic loops that the liner snaps through had pulled completely out of the seam of the pants.
Since I had worn the pants on the bike, I contacted AGVSPORT for warranty service, and received phenomal customer service from them. They are sending me a new pair of pants and instructed me to keep this pair to do with what I wish.
My only other thoughts on the pants are that it would be nice if they had suspenders included (or at least a provision to add them), and the zipper that is supposed to attach to my jacket is in the opposite direction of the one on my jacket, so I can't use it until I find a tailor to switch it around. I'm worried about the stitching holding upon a crash if I have someone else restitch it, so i'm not sure how I'll proceed with that aspect.

Great tech pants. Smaller than usual for "over-pants".
In jeans I wear a 36 waist, 33 inseam. I am 6'1" 195#.
I bought a 2XL based on the reviews and I am glad I did. These are smaller than normal for an over-pant. I wear them over jeans with both liners removed. On 45-50-degree mornings they are comfortable without the liners, over jeans.
FIT & FEEL:
I find that they are not "tight" in the legs, but they are more fitted than a moto-x pant or baggier over-pant. I actually prefer that; they fit nicely and not floppy. I have not tried the liners with jeans, but i think it will fit, just kinda tightly; but if it's cold enough to wear jeans AND liners then tighter is better. I have very big thighs & calves (lifelong bicycle rider) and they are not like skinny jeans on me (keep in mind i got the 2XL). They do ride-up the ankle just a bit when on the bike, but i have 10" boots and they do not ride up above the boot tops. The knee armor is "adjustable" by about 1.5" up or down. i have then on the "lowest" pocket and they align fairly well with my anatomy (long legs).
APPEARANCE & FUNCTION:
They look great. Very nice lines. reflective piping is cool. The tiny hand-warmer pockets are not very versatile, but they work for a small wallet of cell phone or keys. There are no other pockets (a thigh pocket would have been awesome). All zippers are gaiter'd and that is cool for wind blockage. The adjustable waist straps are functional as well as the 8" jacket-connect zipper which mates right up to my Tourmaster Transition 3.0. Its easy to dial them in to my waist with or without jeans on. The rain-liners are pretty thick and would make we sweat like a baptist in a brothel! I live in San Diego so the 3 days a year it rains I will drive the cage - I will most likely never use the rain liners, probably the quilted liner a few weeks a year however. With the quilted liner in and NO jeans the fit was fine. Not tight at all.
For my 6'1" athletic build frame they fit me well. I maybe could have gotten an XL but i don't want the skinny-jeans fit or feel. I need to be able to throw my leg over the bike and move in the seat without a blow-out! See the pictures for the pants with NO liners over jeans with a 10" boot. Bummed that I cannot put these on or take them off with my boots on. The ankle zips do not go up high enough to allow my size 11 steel toes to slip through the legs.

Excellent riding pants
These pants are excellent, especially for the value. A little heavier than I expected, but not surprising in a multi-liner piece of apparel. They fit true to size, about the same as a Levis or Wranglers fit. They are NOT overpants, however, so if that's what you're looking for you should probably go a size or two up. Very durable and easy to move in. Thermally speaking, they block wind great and keep you warm (overly so if you're going to be spending any time indoors with these on).

Nice Pant; TIght Fight
I'm 5'7" and 173 pounds. My waist measures 34" and I wear a 32x30 jean. I ordered a Large Short. I put these pants on but have not ridden in them yet. They fit perfect in the waist and in the portion of the leg below the knee. In the groin and thigh area the pants are very tight. Like skinny jean tight. With both liners in (rain & thermo) the pants are tough to get on the thigh and without the liners there's a bit more room but it's still a tight fit. The length fits me great.
