Dainese Norsorex Pants
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.

Long term update
After having a chance to ride in cool and hot weather I would still recommend buying these in conjunction with a pair of Kevlar jeans. They flow a good amount of air so you don't get swampy. They are not very noticeable under a pair of jeans, unless you're wearing skinny jeans. They make you look like your leg muscles are slightly larger.
Overall a great product and highly recommended.

Hurry up and Buy
All you guys out there wondering "Man I wish I had more protection for my knees..." here ya go. These things are legit, and no one knows you are wearing them. Take that stupid butt crack protector and you can wear these things all day long during an 8-hr work day. So much better that armored jeans, because you can wear any jeans you want!! Because we all know, most rider jeans are fugly as a redhead baby. The only gripe with these things is that the tag does get annoying, so cut it off, don't rip! Trust me on that one. And the hip protectors are kind of in the wrong spot...but that's not what your buying them for. You only get 2 knees. Highly recommend.
These underpants DO NOT protect against road rash on any place other that the KNEES AND HIPS. If you are not going to wear Kevlar lined jeans, proceed with caution.

Best bang for buck hands down!
I wear a 34-36 inch waist, I am 5'10, and weight 190 lbs. The XL I ordered looked small coming out of the box, but it is an amazing fit! The armor stays where you want it, the material is light and breathes very well, I could do squats in these!
I bought these to wear under Kevlar jeans. Everyone who has ever worn them knows the armor in them does not stay in place. I no longer have to worry about that!

The pants are great, I feel more confident and protected with them on. Can't speak on the protection factor, haven't gone down yet with them on but when I do I will be glad I had them on. I wear them under my jeans and no one can tell. If you do t have a pair.. Get some, highly recommend!!
