Dainese Norsorex Pants
Good impact protection
These fit small so order a size up. I am 6'6" with a 40" waist and a 36" inseam. The XXL fits me. I think these long johns offer good impact protection, but almost no abrasion protection. I wear them under jeans, but I'm now thinking about getting a pair of the kevlar lined jeans.
You don't want to see a picture of me wearing them. Trust me.

After buying - but rarely using - another brand of armored underwear, I wanted something similar to wear under jeans, but with much-slimmer armor. These are exactly what I wanted. I wear 36x32 jeans, ordered a "Large" Norsorex pant, and they fit me well (losing 5 pounds of my 185 would increase comfort, though) in the waist and length: tight, but that keeps the armor in place.

Great mid layer protection
This base layer is actually used as a mid layer protection for me. Great padding, sits comfortably although you want to order one size larger for you heavy lifters. I wear a size L when typically I wear an M.

Perfect for some under-jean protection
I wear these under mildly tight straight-leg jeans from time to time, and they're are hardly noticeable while walking around. You can see the knee armor when in the riding position, but who honestly cares. They breathe very well, and are a perfect extra layer for CA bay area winters. They also add a nice bit of extra protection when worn under leathers.
While they offer no abrasion resistance, they are still a great option if you are a habitual jeans rider.

Get a pair!
I wanted protectuon that was not too bulky and afforded better protection than blue jeans. The Dainese Norsorex pants are perfect. EC level one protection. Tight, but great, fit and can be worn easily under blue jeans or leathers. Pretty easy to forget that you have them on. Not any hotter than long underwear. I have had them on all day without discomfort. Wash easilly in the sink and dry fairly fast.

I wear these under my riding pants and love them. The extra sense of protection it provides is great. They are very easy to get on and off, fit sung and are very comfortable. If you're looking for a little bit of extra impact protection these fit the bill.

I bought this armor under pants to go along with my Kevlar jeans for extra protection; it fits well, a little too high on the waist, not too hot, shows a bit the volume of the pads of your knees but that’s ok. I would recommend to anyone looking for extra protection.
I am 6’1, 218lbs.

I wear 32 x 32 pants and I ordered a medium which fit a little snug. The protection seems good. I'd recommend these for all types of riders. Very well made.
