AGV Sport Willow Perforated Leather Pants
Great protection for the money
The overall quality of these pants is quite impressive and you will have a hard time finding better protection for the price. The knee/shin protection height can be adjusted slightly, but I can't get these pants to fully zip at the ankle over my Astars SMX-6 boots. Speaking of zippers, this brings me to my only real gripe about these pants. The stitching on the fly failed after only 15-20 hours of riding.
These pants are more comfortable than I expected and the thick leather should protect well in the unfortunate event of a slide. There is some airflow through the perforation, but no leather pant is going to flow as well as a mesh/textile pant... such is the trade-off for better protection.

Incredible bang for the buck!!
I love these pants! They fit according to your jean size so real easy to get the right size. The protection feels solid and the they allow for a lot of movement in the saddle so you can drop a knee real easy. They breathe real good too sometimes too good in that your jewels will get cold on 45 degree day. That said these are not a cold weather pant. They also have a zippers to attach to an AGV jacket for a 2 piece racing suit.

Fits great, really comfortable
I went with the size chart and worked perfectly. They fit a little odd when standing/walking but that's because they are made to be riding. Makes me have so much more confidence. Ride hard and safe

I wear them for Supermoto and they move very well like motocross pants. Had a few offs and they held up well, no splits and I'm still using them. I am definitely buying another pair when these wear out.

Good protection for price.
I purchased the AGV Sport Willow Perforated Leather Pants as a first pair of riding/touring pants that I thought would offer good protection at a decent price.
These pants offer excellent airflow, as well as protection for the price that I paid. Even after a few hours of riding, I feel no discomfort with these pants. I rode with these pants for a 6 hour ride to the California coast and can say that I was confident with the protection, had plenty of airflow, and felt very little discomfort. They offer some decent sized pockets that can be zipped closed up front to store your wallet, keys, etc.
The only drawback I would say is there is a bit of discomfort in the knees after about 4+ hours of riding; but that could also be attributed to just general fatigue.

Great Pair of Leathers
These pants fit pretty nicely, like every one else has pretty much stated...the fit is great, after you break them in they are perfect.
I want to talk about what most people haven't really covered in these reviews and that is Cold Weather Riding. Let me say that yes the airflow in these pants is superb in my opinion. So when its sub 40F and your wearing these you will have to make sure you have a good pair of long johns on plus a pair of maybe some sweatpants. I use my Adidas soccer warmup pants cause they hug my legs and are comfy. So with my briefs, johns, and sweatpants under it..it WAS manageable. The perforation is right on your thighs and I mean you could still feel the air slightly but it wasn't bad for my 40 minute commute in sub 40F temperatures. They actually stretched a bit with all that on under and it was still comfortable.
Let me reiterate what some other people have said, these pants are HEAVY. They use a quality grain of cowhide leather that makes up 90 percent of the construction. All the other features are great at this price. This was my first set of leathers, I have a very old random tecnik leather jacket and the waist line zipper interfaced seamlessly to make like a full suit which i thought was pretty cool. You really wont be disappointed if your looking for a good all around entry level racing pant. They look bad a** in my opinion too.

Great fit, great padding, needs belt loops
These pants rock! Just wish they had a belt loop for the days when I don't want to secure them to my jacket.
