AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants
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.

Great but not recommended
I have purchased this product sometime ago, however I started using it a few months ago.
The product looks great, I was very happy with it until my third normal on-road use and on dry weather conditions, when unfortunately the pants ripped in the front, by the middle seam and this is only after my third use!
Unacceptable, as the pants are really new, but can no longer use it!
I noticed in some other websites that other people had the same problem!
This is a no go!

Overall solid quality and styling
The quality and the styling and features are excellent. I have an athletic build (I have a butt). The crouch was really swallow when wearing the inner liner and if you have any butt at all don't even think about sitting down. Other than that no problem.

Not bad for the price
I needed a pair of insulated riding pants that would be able to get me from Georgia to Indiana in a range of temperatures from 35-70F. The sizing chart was accurate for what I needed and I did enjoy the fact that they kept my legs nice and warm during some colder weather. They do weigh quite a bit, but I assume anything with 2 interior liners and knee protection will have some weight.
The only major negative was that I did end up melting a section of the pants to my exhaust while stopping for a minute to look up directions. Nothing caught on fire, but there is a quarter sized hole now. I expected the material to be significantly more heat resistant than what I saw.
