Alpinestars Oxygen Air Overpants
I bought these a size small because they were not to be used as an overpant as recommended by the video.
Things l like:
Nice fit without a baggy feel.
Good upper ventilation where the mesh is located.
2 good size pockets up front.
Things I don't like:
Not much lower leg ventilation, will have to slightly unzip the bottom when it gets warmer.
Hip padding is weak.
Overall I would recommend the product however I think it is slightly overpriced for what you get, $150 would be a better price point for these pants.
As always great shipping, received item in 2 days.

great pants - attaching to same brand jacket via zipper is a little tedious (a clasp design seems better) has pockets and armor in all the right places, fits comfortably enough for every day commute usage. Relatively light.

Confort fit and great quality
I bought this oxygen pants for commuting with the alpinestars viper air jacket that can be zipped together. They are very comfort to use them as overpants and it offer the right amount of protection. It mesh flow nicely... I say they'll work perfect from 4 to 28 Celsius.

I wear these over my work clothes when I commute. Great fit and they breathe well. They unzip all the way to the knee, which makes taking them on/off super easy. I definitely recommend.

Keeps the boys cool.
I have been wearing these overpants all summer. They are big enough to go over my jeans or I go commando when it is really hot. They keep me cool when moving, but will heat up fast if you are sitting still.
The two pockets are big enough to hold a cell phone and wallet, but there is no pass through on the pockets. You have to unsnap them to get to your jeans pockets.
The hip padding is minimal, but the knee armor is strong and sits in the right place when on the bike. There is no adjustability in the knee armor.
The length is a little long. I am 5' 8" with a 33" inseam and I purchased the large.

I bought these for additional protection when riding in the canyons, vs riding in kevlar jeans. I'm 5'10, 165 and have worn these over some gym shorts. The pants do exactly what I expected out of them, however there are two things I wish were better on them.
1. The mesh is a little on the sparse side, I would have preferred if there were more airflow. Below the knee, there's no mesh, and you'll find that area starting to sweat heavily, especially if you're wearing boots of any sort.
2. The knee pads are nice, however they slide around a lot. The pocket where the pad goes is barely large enough for the pad to fit. They tend to move around quite a bit, and I find myself constantly readjusting and making sure the velcro keeps the pocket closed. This is rather annoying, and probably my biggest complaint with the pants.

It works but is hot
Most of the promise is accomplished. IS a goof looking well built over-pants protections. Very easy to get in and out; and match with Alpinestar jacket zipper attachment.
My only problem is that I though that the AIR would be cooler than it is.I hoped that AIR would somehow help with hot days and the fact that I have to pants (under pant and these). But it just gets hotter with the over-pants. I dont know if other pants are even hotter than this, I am just saying it does get hot.

Love these pants
I am 6' 4" and the size chart on this site is off quite a bit for these pants. I ordered the XL and the length was surprisingly long compared to other brands (which was perfect for me). I tried tall sizes in different brands and was not impressed with the length. I am about a 35" waist and it was a bit too big, but fit as an over-pant as designed. I just wish there were a couple belt loops for when I decide to wear shorts underneath.
It zipped right up to my Alpinestars T-GP-R Air jacket. The styling was great. Look like they will flow an adequate amount of air, but no exhaust vents.
Hip protection was low, so I added more foam padding that I had laying around.
Overall, a really nice pair of pants. Good length for the taller riders.
