the protection worked
When I bought these, I tried them on in a store. I am 5'10"-5'11" and on the thin side at 165 lbs, 32 waist, 32 inseam. I had to buy a small, and yes, that included putting them on over my jeans. It feels as though the knee protectors hang too low when you are in a standing position, but when you are on your bike, in a riding position, the knee protectors feel like they cover your knees better, although maybe still a tad low.
Last August, I was on a ride in the country when a baby deer jumped out of the grass on a two-lane highway, colliding with my front tire. Target-fixation and locking the front brakes caused me to low-side, sliding down the asphalt 60-80 feet. Amazingly, the pants protected my knees and skin without any road rash whatsoever. Unfortunately, the road did wear through the outer layer of the pants, chewing some large holes in them. As the guy in the store told me: leathers can be worn after an accident, but these textile pants are only good for one crash. He was right, but I was very happy with the protection.

Satisfied Overall (no pun intended)
I bought these as I was looking for a windproof full-zip overpant that was a bit more trim fitting than some of the American branded products. As far as that goes, I'm pretty satisfied. I'm 6'1", 190 lbs. and my jean size is usually 36W 32L. After first trying the XL's I ended up with a large. They're a bit long when standing and the knee pads fall below the knee, but in a riding position everything is right where it's supposed to be. I normally wear them without the thermal liner over office attire when commuting to work but on colder mornings #40-50#, they're not quite as windproof as I had hoped. When wearing them over shorts with the thermal liner installed, they're pretty toasty.
Only other complaint is that the waist adjuster is a somewhat flimsy piece of elastic that really doesn't do much adjusting. On other pants I've had, the adjuster acted more like a belt. Fortunately they already fit pretty well so for me, it's not a big deal.

Good product for the money, but...
Wanted some waterproof textiles to help stay dry during downpours. The removable insulation is good and keep you toasty warm. The built-in in hip pockets and knee guards are some of the main motivations for getting it. Aside from those, it zips up nicely with a Alphinestar textile waterproof jacket I have. Ordered a XL since i am 6' but the knee guards rides a little low when standing up. Not sure how the knee guard is going to stay in place during a spill. Would be nice to have a adjustable velco or drawstring right on to of the knee guard from dropping or going out of place while airborne.

In my opinion.. 5 Stars easily.
I'm about 5'10 at 190lbs and ordered the XL as I planned on wearing them as over pants as intended.They fit well over jeans or sweats and I never think about the comfort as they never intrude on my riding. I use them to commute to work and also as my weekend riding pants. I couldn't be more happy with the results so far. I live in New Jersey so we get all kinds of weather, I wear them when it's cold, and/or when it's raining and never had a problem with water intrusion or with the cold. It was even snowing on my ride home and they worked flawlessly. overall I rate them 5 stars for the quality at the relatively low price. Your fellow rider Jeff.

Maybe a bit too oversized?
Perspective: By most accounts, I fall under the "average" title. I'm 5ft 10in (178cm), weigh about 150 lbs (68 kgs), and am of average build (neither too flabby nor too athletic). If anything, I might seem "skinny" by north american standards.
Sizing: The medium size for this product tends to run a little long in length and a little loose around the waist.
With boots on the back of the pant drags ever so slightly as I walk. If the silly thing came with belt loops I'd just cinch them up a little more but in lieu of the sensible option they have ineffective elasticized adjustment bands that do little to keep things up.
Protection: Haven't crash-tested the gear (yet?) but it all feels solid. As others have commented, the armour hits mid shin while walking but this corrects itself when perched on the bike. (just be sure to keep your knees bent when you hit the ground, yea?)
Features: Waterproofing feels solid. I can't yet comment on the all-season comfort but they don't get sweaty in 80°F (26°C) weather over a pair of shorts.

Needs to be better for the price
Purchased these pants to replace old Kushitani over pants that they no longer produce. Quality of the press studs holding the removal lining is not good, already one fastening has come away. I'm 75 kg @ 186 cm and find even wearing these as over pants the size suggestion was a little large making the pants slip down as the waste band elastic adjusters are next to useless. Having said that the pants are warm in the current winter temperatures in Tokyo, about 2 degrees C and are waterproof in a heavy downpour for a 40 minute ride. One final point The knee protectors are too low and very uncomfortable so I had to remove them.

Not Waterproof
I bought these to replace my old pants (another brand). I commute everyday rain or shine about 10 miles each way in city traffic. Even in a medium rain, water seeps through the butt where I'm sitting. The seams are sealed, so the only possibility seems to be that the coating is not enough to resist the pressure when sitting and therefore water is forced through the pores. Not acceptable at all, especially considering the price. The cut of these pants is a bit tight in the hips and the legs are super long. I'm 5'11 and 185lbs and the large is OK but would be tight with the insulated liner in place. If they were waterproof, the rest would be acceptable, but i'm very dissapointed in these pants.

Great Construction, Slightly off fit
These pants are leaps and bounds better than my old Joe Rocket ones. My old ones had the zippers bind on the flaps and eventually it destroyed them, so I bought these. The zippers are higher quality, the design is better and they zipping is very smooth.

I'm a tall slender build, so the fit is a bit off. The knee armor seems to be just below my knee while walking. Once I'm sitting on the bike, everything seems to be in the right place.

These can get pretty hot on a 70+ degree day, but are acceptable while moving.

Great Value for the price
Pants are a little long but ride good. I recently moved to Kauai and have had several opportunities to try them out in the rain. I've gotten to work dry every ride. The full length side zippers make it very easy to get them on and off and they are comfortable on long rides. I'll defiantly be buying another pair when these are ready to retire.

Great over pants, a bit on the smaller size
These are great, They are waterproof, I took them snowboarding with the knee pads removed. They are a tighter fit then regular over pants, just like my A-Stars jacket. If you are in the military get at least a size larger. I can barely fit a large with my ABUs on. I am 6' 190 lbs if that helps. But they held up to all day on snow and ice without getting torn up, so they seem durable.

I live and commute in SF. Looking for reasonably priced 4-season(fair weather) riding pants to wear over my jeans. One main feature I want is a long leg zip so the pant can be removed without taking off my boots. Also like that the zip is 2 way so you can open from the top to vent in warmer weather..

I have alpinestars summer riding overpants, the construction is good, it's a premium brand name and includes all the nice-to-have features - pads, pockets, zippers that don't get stuck, wear protection in the right spots - so i figured they'd do just as good as a job on the winter riding pants. also the good reviews didn't hurt.

I am looking to commute in colder weather than I did last year and wanted a pair of pants that would fit over my normal cloths, had removable insulation, were water proof, were able to be connected to a jacket by zipper and had some armor. These pants offer all of these features for an affordable price.

10 year experience with older Andes model, wanted newer style and ability to leave boots on when putting on or taking off...
I am sure as with all my Alpinestars equipement they will last a very long time...Daily rider, daily used.

Will this get zipped on the Alpinestars Viper Air Jacket?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, I have a Ducati jacket and don't zip them
Hi, i want to use this overpants with my jeans underneath. Do i need to pick a bigger size for this pants to fit me like an overpants? or i just pick my actual size? Thank you very much for your time.
A shopper on May 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Just get your regular size pants. They will fit over jeans no problem.
Will these pants zip into the Alpinestars Andes Jacket?
Kyle T on Mar 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They should. They zip to my Astar AST jacket and I'm pretty sure all recent Astar zips are the same.
Will it zip up to the P1 Drystar jacket? Will it match that jacket in texture and color shade? Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The P1 Drystar jacket is an older model and may not zip with current Alpinestars pant models due to a change in zipper toothing. Any pair of current Alpinestars Drystar pants with the waist connection zipper comes with the "upper half" of the zipper to sew into your jacket if it does not match.

The P1 Drystar had a 500 Denier Cordura Texland Air Guard fabric construction. Sadly, Alpinestars does not have a current pant model with the same construction as the P1. The Express Drystar pants are made with a PU coated 450 Denier fabric so it will not be an exact material match but should still be close to the same shade of black. Please keep in mind that different materials and garments are typically dyed in batches so it is entirely possible that two garments even from the same product line could have some variation in the color.
Anthony did no mention of knee protection but the written description says CE Knee Armor. Does it or does it not have knee armor?
Daniel H on Oct 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have the pants and they have knee armor.
Will these pants zip to a Megaton jacket?
Nicholas B on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it doesn't line up perfectly, the jacket side zipper is shorter by like an inch well for my jacket / pant combo. But I've been commuting with this set for 8 now and it been zipping together with out an issue.
Are these comfortable without jeans under them? Can you wear them in 25C or 77F?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: well, i tried to wear them w/o jeans once, and you can definitely do it, but they become very large (i' had to get the 2xl to fit around my tire), and w/o 'pants' they don't stay up, however, i didn't try to zip them into the jacket? but wearing them w/o pants i felt like a 3yr old running around with his pants falling off, but when i'm in the saddle, they're very comfortable!
Unfortunately we've not seen 77deg weather yet, up here in the PNW (Seattle) we're still hovering in the mid 50's, but the side zips have a zipper at the top, which would definitely work as a vent!

these are a great pair of over-pants though!
How do these pants do down into the 30s F with jeans underneath?
Jonathon H on Nov 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They do well. I've worn them with slacks underneath and they are still very warm. Great wind resistance as well.
Are these suitable to wear in temperatures ranging from 75 to 120 F? Do they circulate tons of air?
Baasir J on Nov 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not wear these in temps over 70 F (or even over 60, tbh), they're just too warm and don't have enough circulation. I bought the Rev'It AirWave pants for warm weather and they're INCREDIBLE for circulating.

Just in case anyone is wondering - I wear these in the coldest temps we get in the PNW and stay nice and toasty. Love these things so much.
There are clasp buttons on the bottom inside of each pant leg, what are these for?
Jason T on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are for securing the removable winter liner.
