AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants
You get what you pay for
It is always difficult choosing the right product online, but living in Montana, doesn't allow a lot of options. Fortunately, Revzilla is easy to work with on exchanges/ returns.
This was my 3rd pair of pants before satisfaction. The other pants were leather and too tight or my needs.
I marked the durability low because after only 5 rides, things are falling apart. Day 1, interior loop to hold layers at the bottom cuff ripped out. Day 3, belt tightening strap ripped. Both occurred just getting into the pants, not cool.
On the positive side, the pants fit me well, I'm 6'4", 35" inseam. I removed the "waterproof layer" cause it made my legs clammy. Much better.
Another complaint is the pants are slick on my seat. It's almost alarming when going into turns and my butt is sliding around. Hope I can get this resolved.
All in all, decent pants for the price. There are probably better models out there, but you will spend $$$ for them.

Excellent versatile pant for the price
This pant is an awesome deal for the features it supports as a 4 season item. The main seller for me to this pant over similarly priced ones were that it can be worn as an overpant and that it had hip padding which is often sparse in this price range. The pant fits small. I am a 30x30 pant regularly and I originally ordered a medium short pant. The waist was too tight and when testing a squatting position it cut into my stomach. I returned them for a large short and couldn't be happier. These can be used as an overpant even with the thermal liners in. Just be mindful that it not a loose cut so it will be tight around the legs. I like this design over the Icon Hooligan pant which is baggy and lacks hip padding. In my opinion these pants are the best bang for the buck hands down.

Just what I was looking for...
Taking a long road-trip this summer, and needed a good pair of armored pants. I have a unique build, and after reading the reviews, I was hoping the slender legs in these would fit the bill. They do. If there is any downside, it's that I wish the inseam was a touch longer. I have a 32" inseam and purchased the medium size. At 5'10" and 172 lbs - the waist fits perfect, but the inseam rides just a little high. If you're roughly my build, but have a 31" or less inseam, probably be good to go. (assuming you're looking for a snug fitting pant.) I didn't want to go up to a large, because I wanted them to fit snug in order to keep the armor in place, and because they look better. I look forward to never having to test that armor.

Agv telluride pants
Pros. look cool. Good value. Nice features. Warm.
Cons. Front pockets small. Cut for skinny legs. Hockey player legs are too big! Ordered an xxl size. I'm 6' 200#s 36" waist. Thighs are tight but calves are loose. I'm a lil chunky I guess.
Overall happy with my purchase. Got the hi vis jacket too. Too warm for summer. They have a one year warranty so let's see how it goes

Small, disappointed (that's what she said)
After fewer than 10 rides and only 3 weeks of ownership, I've torn a hole in the crotch of my AGV Telluride pants. Very disappointed.
I bought a size "large" which is supposed to be for 32-34 waist. These pants are definitely pants, not overpants. While the waist fit was fine, they were quite tight in the thigh/crotch area. It's not like I'm a massive body builder or super fat kid either - I'm 5' 10" and 175. Obviously this ended up being a problem.
If you need to layer up, then you'll have an ever tighter fit in the pants, and further reduced mobility (since the pants were tight to begin with for me).
I'd recommend AGV widen the crotch, use elastic material, or simply use higher quality stitching that can handle that amount of stretch/load.
In any event, I'll be contacting AGV/Revzilla about warranty/refund stuff.

Good for the price.
These pants are quite heavy. A lot of protection and that was what i was looking for as well as bein warm for riding in weather around 0-12 degrees C. They do this well. Been out around 5 times with them and i find them warm enough for about 1-2 hours. I recomend these pants for the bang for buck factor. I can however see them getting very hot in the summer the vents are small and therefore inadequate for proper ventilation.

So far so good!
Good pants, per recommendations here I ordered a size up from what I normally wear so these will fit over my pants. Still fit pretty snug around the knees but this helps keep the kneepads in place. So far these pants are WARM!! I have been wearing them without any of the liners and its in the 40F-50F. Great wind protection. Vents help quite a lot (we'll see when it starts hitting 90F weather). Haven't tested how waterproof they are yet, hopefully the pockets stay waterproof as this is usually where my cell phone resides. My only gripe is I wish the zipper went up the leg more, as it stands you cant put boots on before the pants.

Leaving on a 2 month tour from Florida to Seattle and back, so need the perfect pants for all weather, the Telluride fit the bill. Have talked one of my riding partners to buy them also.
