AGV Sport Willow Perforated Leather Pants
Comfortable with serious protection and great price
I've used these on about 6 rides so far, from 45 mins to 3 hours, including at night and on fairly warm days in the sun in southern California. The hottest day I've rode in these was about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. They breath pretty well and fit properly. The pockets on the front aren't too hard to use and the legs get nice and narrow to fit inside your riding boots.
The knee sliders are removable and replaceable via heavy duty velcro.
They have hip protectors and a tailbone pad which is great and means I don't need to use my dianese hard-shorts with these.
I noticed that, on a warm day, the knee pads start getting a little bit uncomfortable after wearing these for 4 hours. That's not a big deal though.
Just make sure you get these in the right side because there are no belt loops and the velcro tightening strap doesn't do much. If they're too big, they will sag and the knee pads may drop too low on your legs.

Incredibly durable leathers
So far I've had 4 lowsides in these pants and they have held up fantastically. I ride with these zipped to a Dainese Veloce jacket and while both have protected me adequately, the AGV Sport pants have worn much better. No holes in the leather at all, and even though a lot of the stitching has rubbed off the pants are holding together great.
The pants run VERY large. I ordered a 32 and they feel like a roomy 34. The kneeslider does feel like it should be lower on the shin, but it's NBD.
The perforated version vents a surprising amount of air.
These pants are heavier than the boutique brands (9lbs!!), but they're great if you don't mind the weight.

Protects and has good airflow
I've lowsided twice wearing these pants and they've saved my skin both times. Didn't even get a bruise. The pants are still perfectly fine with no tears or holes. Air flow is good while riding. I'm trying to save up to get the matching jacket to do a track day in these!

I have an AGV Dragon jacket and AGV willow perf pants combo that I use for spirited riding and track days. I recently low sided on the track at about 45 and slid on my front and then over to my rear. The dragon jacket was untouched (no scrapes). The Willow pants took lots of abrasion across the knee, leg side, and rear end panel with no ripping. I keep my pants zipped to the jacket and there was no issue there. Overall there was not a scratch on me and the AGV gear held up well.
I also use a forcefield CE2 back protector with the setup.
The setup is comfortable up to about 90-95 degrees if you keep moving, and as cold as 50 with some long johns. Highly recommend this setup if you are on a budget and are doing track days or spirited street riding. Thanks Revzilla.

Great Option for beginners
I bought this pants as my first equipment.
Is made from a good quality leather, everything looks ok except the sliders (They look cheap) but they can be changed.
This pants is meant for long boots, is kinda short.

Best deal in a leather pant
Fits snug and has great protection for knees, shins and even padding for the side of the hips.
Wear a 32 and this fit me just right (ordered same size). Another pound or two and it will be tight. I'm 5'11, 170.

This is the first pair of leather pants i have bought, and i couldnt be happier. I wear these everytime i go out on the bike and have probably ridden about 1000 miles in them to date.
I have about a 32" waist and ordered the same size. I think the waist runs a little big, but the legs are spot on. They are easy to get in and out of, and fit snug to my legs with a pair of gym shorts on underneath. I am an athletic build, so my quads are kind of big, and i think they fit perfect. The average build person might have a small amount of wiggle room in the legs.
I like the protection these pants offer. I always feel safe when im wearing them. I think if i went down in them i would be well protected. The leather is thick, and is nice quality. The knee and hip protection is nice. My only gripe would be that the butt pad is rather small, but generally when i go on long rides the inside of my thighs are what hurts so i dont really need it anyways.
All in all these are great pants that i am very satisfied with. If you are looking at these and are on the fence, pull the trigger. You wont be disappointed!

safety and comfort at a great price
I decided I needed more protection for my 100 mile commute and rare mountain runs. Decided on these pants after watching and reading lots of positive reviews, and because they fit my budget. This was my first Revzilla order and they did not disappoint. Lightning fast shipping, and excellent service. I ride in South Carolina which means 90+ temps and humidity. After 2 weeks of use these pants are now my must wear riding pants. They go on relatively easy, breath great while moving, have insane knee and shin armor, and most importantly they are comfortable to wear. They fit perfectly inside my sedici boots and at speed the air flows strait up my legs from the boots venting holes. I am 6'3" 210 and usually wear a 36/34 jean. I ordered the 34 as everyone commented on there slightly large sizing. Out of the box they fit tight, like a glove. After a few hours of wearing them around the house they started breaking in and are really quite comfy. I wear only underwear underneath, and would need the next size up for anything else. Order these just like your jeans for max comfort, or maybe a size smaller if you wanna glove like fit. Quality seems great no issues so far. Knee and shin armor is substantial, works seamlessly with in-style riding boots for complete leg protection. Zippers are great, short and 360 to fit a variety of jackets. Knee pucks are kinda cheesy looking, I just pulled them off as I do not knee drag or track ride. Overall great pants that provide that next level protection without the next level price.
