Dainese Norsorex Pants
I love how I can wear this protection easily under my jeans to give me the extra protection on my knees, hips, and tail bone! it sits underneath my jeans or pants easily, and you can't tell at all that you're wearing protection. I'm a city rider doing short distances around down to run errands, so to have something that is light-weight but gives me some extra protection without being bulky is really fantastic! I fully recommend this product!

Not Quite Right
Tailbone pad uncomfortable after an hour on a cruiser, I surmise it would be OK on a sport bike. Keep moving to stay cool in 80F / humid weather, make sure you are dry before putting them on. Hip pads are really thigh pads, They could use another pad at the hip bone. Kneepads get uncomfortable after 6-7 hours, I find myself moving them around after a long stint and they could offer more side of the knee protection. They survive the washing machine.

Good comfort - peace of mind
I ride a lot of recreational miles on weekends and usually wear jeans.. The Norsorex pants seemed a good alternative to finding just the right size of protective Kevlar jeans. None would ever fit just right. I have used the Norsorex pants 4-5 times in hot weather. They are super comfortable and fit under all but skinny jeans. The hip and knee pads are soft-ish and are pliable. The spandex material grips enough at the ankle and waistband to keep everything together. On a wet trip over 5 hours, everything was soaked, but the pants stayed tight and relatively comfortable. One gripe is the rear but pad that gets annoying after a few hours. There is no way to remove the pads and care when washing - hang to dry. I haven't been 'down' in these but I will use them under proper riding pants too. Size is accurate. Order what you would normally get in western (US) size.

Not too much money, Not too little support... Just right...
The Dianese Norsorex Pants hit the Goldilocks zone when it comes to providing the perfect amount of protection for my knees, hips and tailbone for a great price.
My dimensions are 6'0'' and 170 lbs. The large fit me like a glove and can be comfortably worn under any of my jeans (even slim fitting ones).
They are comfortable enough to stay in them after the ride but the knee armor is made for the riding position so expect some bunching.
Only thing I could recommend to Dianese to make this product slightly better is to increase the size of the hip armor towards the upper hipbone (iliac crest).

Good protection, great air flow
More comfortable than they look. After a while, I forget that I have them on.

Excellent armor choice for under clothing
I got these for my husband, as he does not have a pair of pants that are great for hot weather, and prefers to wear jeans.
Overall, these fit him well, are comfortable, and stay in place armor-wise very well. They are not as comfortable when it's very hot (90F+), but they definitely add a level of protection better than just jeans.
Keep in mind that these do nothing for abrasion, which is a significant factor when in an accident. The armor helps keep your hips and knees safe from impact, but the rest of the pant is just to keep the armor in place. Wear something abrasion-resistant over them, and you'll have exceptional protection.

I normally wear size 32 and I ordered a M , i am 6'' and pretty skinny and these fit pretty well, the only thing I did not like was this pants are a little short. I wish these were tighter though.

Great on bike, not bad off.
Norserex Pants are awesome when on the bike. barely know they are there because of the position on your knees. Great for trips even in the summer. They are less comfortable when off the bike because the knee pads bunch slightly but definitely not a deal breaker. Much better then wearing full on riding pants.
