Satisfied But Not Recommended
These come barely recommended because they have some flaws to it. On paper these pants seem like an excellent deal. I like the clip on the front instead of the buttons. I had tourmaster pants before and the button broke. With these pants you get a nice comfortable mesh material inside with front and back vents for hot days, an extra layer for rain, plus another extra layer for winter. Add in knee and hip padding and you've got one heck of a deal right?
Well, it would be if the execution was better. The first unfortunate fail are the front pockets. They are very tight front pockets, and why they didn't decide go with larger side pockets I have no idea. Next is the knee pads. They fit terribly like a lot of others have stated, falling a bit too low. I tested them on an all day ride and I was getting sore at the end due to the uncomfortable fit of them. I wanted to send them back but then decided to get shop for a good set of knee pads instead, and not risk getting other pants with bad knee pads.
So I bought the Leatt 3DF Foam Knee Guards and it made a big difference. Those knee guards are outstanding and much better then the stuff you'll find that comes with a lot of these pants. Plus they fit comfortably underneath.
So after that adjustment things feel better but now the price is a little over $200, so the bang for buck deal on these pants is no longer there. They're okay, but to be honest everything I own from AlpineStars and Spidi are much better quality.

had to return first pair because they where way smaller than expected. but once i got some that fit they have been fine. the waist band needs to be really high compared to normal pants to get the knee pads in the right spot and the pockets could be better. I would say they are a good value for the money.

Good pants, just a little small.
I got these for a long highway trip. Great pants, but they definitely run a little small. I'd order a size up. Unless you're in a sportier position with rear pegs you won't really get any airflow either. However they're very comfortable and a lot of bang for the buck.

Amazing value, great comfort! It's a steal at this price!
Bought these pants based on the reviews I read from others and for the price point. Was looking for some pants I can wear on weekend rides in the mountains in some aggressive sport riding. These pants fit well and are pretty comfortable. Nothing over the top as far as styling or features but they do some with an insulated layer (haven't had to use yet) and a waterproof liner (not used yet either). For the money, it's tough to beat. I wish the venting was better but it's on par with what I expected from two small zip vents on the legs. As is, without the waterproof liner, the pants do provide some water resistance, as I found out first hand while getting caught in a small shower on my last ride. Didn't get soaked and dried up pretty quickly. While riding, these pants are great, but do warm up pretty quickly when stopped, especially in high temps. I think i'll keep these for cooler days and get another pair that vents better.

Good airflow (when you want it), comfortable and insulating

Very small and poor quality.
I am 5'10" and weigh 185lbs. I normally wear a 34x32 or a 34x34 for riding. I ordered the XL. When I pulled them out of the box I was initially impressed with the weight and overall appearance of these pants. Then I tried them on. It was a struggle from the beginning. The legs are way too tight and when I first tried to push my leg through a lot of the inner liner came out before my foot did. When I did manage to get them all the way on they were very tight to buckle and the length was easily 4 inches too long. The knee pads were on my shins. The zipper only comes a small way up increasing the difficulty with putting them on.So off they came. I took out each liner and tried them on and every time they were a struggle to get on. The inner lining seemed very cheaply made and sewn. I guess you get what you pay for and I learned my lesson with these pants.

Cold weather pants
These are perfect for cold-weather when using both liners. Overall, quite satisfied with the choice.
