AGV Sport Willow Perforated Leather Pants
Great pants for the price
Bought these for track days. I'm a size 32, ordered a size 32 and they fit great. They are also comfortable after you break them in.

Excellent pant for the price tag. Good features, comfy and fits true to size. Would buy again.

Good quality pant, air flow ain't bad for leather, size is true to pant size and Revzilla's size guide and videos were spot on. I would definitely recommend these. Only one neg they don't connect to my Topanga AVG jacket and have to take them in to get the zipper attached. Hoped AVG products would be more compatible with other AVG stuff. Minor considering the price though. Revzilla ships really fast thats always a big plus!!!!!

Poor construction, liner is flawed and tears at the top
These pants could be nice, but you definitely get what you pay for with AGV Sport.
Since I was pleased with my AGV Sport Dragon jacket, on 3/21 I ordered the AGV Sport Willow Perforated pants from Revzilla to match my Dragon jacket. When I received them, I found that the zipper did not mate to the zipper on the Dragon jacket. (smaller zipper teeth and zipper slider on the jacket). Revzilla indicated that they contacted AGV Sport/Motonation (Motonation is the US distributor) and were informed that it was a known problem that some pants had the wrong zippers. I exchanged for a larger size and they assured me it would also solve the zipper problem.
-I received the replacement Willow pants on 4/5 from Revzilla. While they did fit me, I discovered that the zipper was exactly the same as the last pair of pants...the teeth were much larger than the teeth on the jacket. Clearly the problem was with my Dragon jacket. Revzilla reimbursed me immediately to have a seamstress sew in the correct mating zipper on my Dragon jacket. (The whole purpose of buying jacket and pants from the same manufacturer is to avoid this task!)
-I noticed a tear in the lining after the first time I wore the Willow pants, so I returned them to Motonation for a warranty claim on 4/8. Three full weeks later, 4/29, I received the replacements from Motonation only to discover that they have a tear in the lining in the exact same spot as the pants that they replaced! (see attached photo)
-Upon emailing Motonation a photo of the tear in my replacement pants and demanding a replacement to be overnighted to me so I don't have to wait an additional 3 weeks, I received this response: "Unfortunately it seems as if this quirk in the construction of the pants is present throughout the line, so a replacement would have the same issue. I'm sorry that this was not caught earlier." Motonation/AGV Sport admitted they sell a flawed product and offered a refund.
DO NOT BUY THESE PANTS.

Had these pants for a month or so but due to rather cold weather have had waterproof pants over them. Today in 45f weather with pants under them they flowed a good breeze. Super comfortable, I've doubled the hip padding as 10mm is not much. Would be nice if i could get something to cover the velcro on the knees as I'm not using the pucks at all. But superb pants that also go rather well with my Sidi Vortice air boots!

Definitely a good start.
These are the first protective pants i've bought and used. Over all really great, strong leather, protection everwhere and very convenient to remove the CE, knee pucks and what not, plenty of breathability. Im currently waiting on my AGV sport sniper jacket to come in, im assuming the 8' will connect with the jacket ,but as youve read above I suppose im rolling the dice. Haha

Great pant except check your zippers (YBS vs YKK)
I ordered this product along w/ the AGV Photon Coat thinking that I could have the two zip together to make a suit. I was wrong. All of the AGV Sport Bike Coats use YKK zippers for the 360/8 Inch connection zipper. The AGV Willow Pants use a YBS zipper for the 360 and 8 Inch connection zipper. Why AGV did this, I have no idea. One would think that their sport bike pant would be compatible with their sport bike coats.
The Willow Sport Pant is a great product, fits well, and would have done exactly what it was intended to do except for this issue.

So with some track days planned, I started out trying to get myself into the AGV Sport Willow 1-piece suit, which is also a great product but I just couldn't get the right fit with two different sizes.
I decided to give these Willow pants a try, also realizing that for me, a 2-piece race suit is much more practical, versatile, and offers the same amount of protection. Along with these pants I ordered the AGV Dragon jacket (essentially the same style / pattern as the Willow suit, which I really like). Another plus is the pants & jacket combined cost over $100 less than the 1-piece suit.
I'm a 33x32 in pants and I got the size 34. PERFECT fit. What's great is there is some adjustment with a velcro strap above the fly but mainly, the elastic in the waist allows for flexibility and a secure fit. I was really surprised at how comfortable these are within 15 minutes of just walking around. Two front zipped pockets are a nice addition too.
Calves are a *little* snug, but it's almost not even worth mentioning. My TCX boots fit over them great. Also impressed that these pants include a back zipper, AND a separate 360 zipper. This allows me to zip them into my Dragon jacket or my lighter-weight Veloce jacket. If your jacket doesn't have a built-in zipper, these pants also include top zippers that you can sew into most jacket liners.
Opted for the perforated style since summer is coming up, and when the temps drop I'll just get cool weather under-pants to stay warm.
