AGV Sport Willow Perforated Leather Pants
Got these pants as it started getting cold out here in NYC. I usually wear Icon jeans or Kevlar jeans on the street but I've always wanted a two-piece. Since I already have a practically brand new AGV Sport jacket, I figured I'd finally go ahead and get some AGV pants to match. As others have said, the zippers won't necessarily match up (sorry but I can't remember the name of the jacket, nor is it written anywhere on the jacket) but that's not a biggie, there are many tailors in my area that do this type of work.
Even though it's cold right now, I bought the perforated version, and I'm glad I did. They kept me warm in 40 degrees, so imagine the summer! I definitely felt the wind rushing through the perforated sections, especially the thigh area. I got my jean size and they fit perfectly. They feel sturdy and look great. I wore them around the house a bit to break them in some which helped. Felt a little weird at first on the bike, but after some adjusting (ala Rossi...lol) things felt fine. The hip padding is pretty substantial, a lot more than expected and the pockets are pretty deep and can actually hold stuff. The accordion type stretch panels are all over the place so there's some "give" where you might need it. The zippers are quality and the pants are just put together well.
As always, Revzilla got them to me earlier than expected. Overall, I'm really loving these pants. The included sliders are ok, but I'm not dragging any knees on the highway. The perforation works and the fit is great. The leather is quite thick and everything feels "quality".... I would recommend these to anyone that wants to step up from a pair of jeans safety-wise, or anyone that wants the bottom half of a two piece... Can't go wrong with these! Oh, and the price. For the quality, fit and feel for the price here at Revzilla, these pants should be number one on your list, especially for those of us on a budget... have you seen the price for leather pants from some other brands?!!!...

comfortable and protective
Living in TX, I bought these in summer and have only worn them a few times. However, the few times I've used them, they're comfortable to wear and feel solid. They have a zipper in the back to connect to a standard jacket (they connect fine with my Teknic Supervent Pro Mesh Jacket). I haven't owned leather pants without perforation, so I can't compare, but these pants seem to breathe all right. They are definitely hot though, and when the weather is in the 90s they start to get really uncomfortable. If you know you want a pair of perforated leather pants, I would recommend these pants. They run slightly large, but I would still go with your regular jean size.

Excellent leather pants
I'm really impressed with this pants. The quality and materials are really good. I feel completely protected when ride with these pants.
I don't have too much to compare since this are my first ones but I think that you will receive an exceptional product considering the price. I have seen other pants and the texture and quality in some cases are inferior than this pants.
This pants are comfortable to use on bike but I will not recommend to walk a lot on them since are designed to fit over a bike.
Ventilation is fair enough considering that the pants are designed to protect your skin.
I definitely recommend this product. I'm really satisfied with this purchase.

My first sport bike pant.
The pants feel great, allow pretty god airflow. All the padding makes you feel very secure while getting low in the corners. They fit very true to size.

Best pants for this price
You can compare this pants with others. for that small price you will not find something better.
- High protection. When you put it on, u got a filling that your soft place now is more protected than before. i really cant ride without this pants, cause i fill naked.
- Price for quality.
- Comfortable. I clotheon this pants with SIDI Vertigo boots. Its not hot to use it, even if the temperature is +28C =>good AirFlow. But if you take 5 minute pause in ridding, and waste this time, for example, in queue, you'll be hotdogged quickly )
- stretch. I ride in it for 2 month, and now knee guard do not fit me so tight, like at first time. But material of pants - leather, and it is normal for that material. you cant ignore this fact.
- Cold. It even not minus.. but you should know, that if you ride in temperature under +7C, you should wear some base layer.
- Eyelets. There are no eyelets for belt.
What can i say? Buy it! It is awesome and stylish.
Best regards. Have a safe ride!

Good value - riding/track-day leather
I purchased these leather pants to go with my AGV jacket for some advanced riding and track days. They zipped to the AGV jacket with an 8" zipper in the liner. The fit and flexibility is good and worked well for me on a track day on a Ducati 996. They appear to give you good protection should you end up taking a little slide, although I have not tested this feature. The pants also came with additional zippers in the waist that you can sew into your favorite jacket. This is a better choice in my opinion because the 8" zipper is in the liner of the AGV jacket, which did not seem to be too secure. I sewed the provided zipper into the full circumference of my jacket with good success.

This product is true to size. When you put on the pants there seems to be too much extra slack. But once you get into riding position all the armour is positioned properly and it is very comfortable to ride in. Very good for all types of riding.

Great for the price
I bought these after some very extensive research on various sites, and real world shops. As I'm in Oz, I paid a lot of attention to sizing so ordered size 34. Too big! And, although Revzilla offers free exchange, the $60 postage cost to take advantage of this was prohibitive.
In the end, I just bought size 32 and sold the others to a more well-fed friend at a bit of a loss. No dramas.
The pants themselves - excellent. In Brisbane weather they flow just enough air through the crotchal (is that a word?) region to make things comfortable. These were cooler than my Kevlar jeans on a ride.
The pants feel odd off the bike, as they should, but spot on when riding.
The fit around the thighs is, well, generous - Tour de France cyclists and front rowers would find this useful.
They also came with both sides of the short zip and full zip for attaching to jackets - I've sewn the long zip into my Dainese jacket alongside the zip that's already there and it all zips together happily.
I don't think you'll find better for the price. As for size, my tip is get whatever you jeans size is.
