Alpinestars Bregenz Drystar Pants
Pants run small. Great in cold weather. Nice looking, Knee protection pocket opens sometimes, pad drops out! Biggest complaint is my seat gets soaked in all but the lightest rain. Must wear rain overpants,

Comfortable, warm and actually waterproof. Runs very small.
By far the best riding pants I've owned. The removable liner keeps me warm and the pants are waterproof as advertised. They run REALLY small. The fitment chart said a size Large fits up to a 36" waist over jeans. I wear a 35" and I can barely get the pants on over jeans and zipping up the fly is out of the question. Buy a size larger than you think you need.

Runs small, but perfect otherwise
Great all weather pants, keeps me warm down into the 30's and with the liner out have ridden in the low 80's. Fit wise, it's a little absurd. I'm 6'1 215lbs and wear a 34x34 pant - which somehow translated into a XXL. I normally wear a large pant and XL jacket. But with that aside, the knee pads sit perfectly when crouched on my bike (speed triple).

The protection seem to be a little low when you are not riding but it's normal the y fit perfect when you sat. The only issue I've found on this pants are that they fit very small, I'm 32-33 and I've bought 34, and they fits me perfect.

runs small, knee protection to low
1. It runs small, like others have commented.
2. The knee protection is below my knee, and not adjustable.
Ended up returning the pant.

Great all-around pant.
I purchased these pants primarily for added protection and for riding in some fairly extreme weather. So far, the pants have been great and they're rated at 4 stars because I haven't had the chance to use them in the rain. However, I have ridden in 80+ degree and down to 16 degree weather with them and I was totally comfortable in both situations. The removable liner will allow you to adapt to many different riding conditions.

Get them while you can
I recently purchased these pants for my winter riding. I will break this down into three basic categories (Good, So-So, and Seriously?)
First the good, These are very comfortable. I was able to use them on the second half of my 700 mile ride this past weekend. My legs stayed temp neutral in 35-50 degree weather. For that reason, I would recommend to all.
Now the So-So. While these are reduced to $200, I would think a $400 pant would have some sort of velcro or tightening option for the ankle. Seems a bit of wind can get in here. If I was using a full boot I might not have had the issue. But I cannot be sure. The amount of wind was minimal, but if the temp drops, I could see this causing some discomfort.
Now the SERIOUSLY???. First, I want to say AWESOME JOB REVZILLA. I ordered these pants with second day delivery so I could try them on my 700 mile ride. I did received them when expected. My pants size is a 36W and 29inseam. My "wiast" is a 41. By the size chart, I am a Large. However, Revzilla suggested XL because I want to wear them over street clothes. So, I ordered XL. XL for who??? A kid??? I couldn't get them past my knees. Without my jeans, I couldn't zip or button them. Revzilla was AWESOME at the exchange. THey were able to ship them to my hotel. Sadly, these pants run VERY SMALL. at my stated measurements, I actually needed a 3XL (SERIOUSLY???) The only other downside here is I guess 3XL is implied to be for TALL people. While I am 6 foot even, When I put these pants on, the knee/shin protector rests at the bottom of my knee (even in sitting position). I know I could take these to a taylor and have them repositioned. And I might. But really???
Overall, these are great pants. Just make sure you get help from Revzilla in ordering the right size.

I wear 38 pants.
Usually, 38 are a little loose around my waist, sometimes snug around the waist, but fit well everywhere else. As in, loose around the hips and legs, not problem moving around... comfortable.
For these pants, following the size chart, I got XXL, which sould have been the equivalent of 40+ waist. Well... I had a hard time getting these over my hips. Button barely closed, tight around the legs, hips and butt, and too long!
I have no idea who does their sizing... but they are WAY off! Not even close, and don't even THINK of using those as overpants... forget that.
So there you go. If you are tall and very skinny, you can probably pull that off. But if you're a little more filled in, like 6" and over 190lbs... those pants will not fit you.
