Great product! 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! August 19, 2014
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. August 18, 2014
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. August 4, 2014
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). July 28, 2014
Good protection, great air flow More comfortable than they look. After a while, I forget that I have them on. July 23, 2014
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. July 21, 2014
pretty good 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. July 10, 2014
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. July 8, 2014

C A: Aditional protection May 11, 2014
Enoch K: I was looking for protection to wear under my jeans for casual rides. I researched many products and found the Norsorex Pants to offer the best combination of protection, comfort, and price. Plus, Revzilla makes shopping and buying easy. My only concern is how comfortable these pants will be in hot weather or while sitting in a restaurant with no air movement to provide evaporative cooling. I plan to review this product after a few rides. May 2, 2014
Diego V: Great reviews, already own one and is great, buying another for the wife Apr 21, 2014
Ellery P: I purchased these for extra protection and warmth under my jeans. Apr 10, 2014

A S: I bought other pants and they were too small. I called about sizing for this and got good information about it's streatchiness and sizing. I can wear pants that fit me over these for added protection. Mar 28, 2014
A S: I have kevlar jeans but they do not have any armor so I thought this would be a good addition in the event of a get off. Mar 26, 2014
Michael L: I usually just ride with jeans, so I want a protective base layer that isn't going to be too bulky. Mar 25, 2014
karl r: I chose this for adv/dualsport riding. I chose these of competitors because of better customer reviews. I generally hope on my bike with maybe a maximum leg protection of knee pads. I'm going to be trying them in a lot of off road environments and I will review if I feel they offer enough protection after I give them a shot for a few weeks. I'm 6'0, 185lbs, 33" waist, and I ordered a large. Mar 20, 2014

Diana B: will go under sufficiently loose clothing street clothing as well as Dakar pants Mar 9, 2014

Elijah S: I wanted some protection under my jeans and these were perfect for that. Jan 28, 2014
Mark L: CE rated armor in an undetectable base layer plus the Dainese brand and quality that comes with it made this a no-brainer. The fact that they won a ZLA award is what initially caught my attention. I had been looking into purchasing the Bohn armored tights before I found these. Although the Bohn seemed to have beefier armor, they were significantly more expensive. These are comfortable and the armor stays exactly where it should while I'm riding. Dec 23, 2013
Joseph M: Wanted armor I could put on under every day clothes. Dec 18, 2013
Chuck M: Wanted protection to use with the regular well fitting pants I already have. I also wanted some protection that stays where it belongs...none of the jeans today offer hip pads without looking like a pair of Hand Me Downs! Nov 7, 2013
Ricardo K: I leave in Brazil where is very hot so I had to choose this item to use under my Jeans. It is the first time using this stuff I hope it will get me protected. Nov 3, 2013

C J: I read many positive reviews, I was looking for an underarmor to use under my kevlar jeans. Oct 12, 2013
Gregory W asked: People that have bought a pair, when riding multiple days in a row, are you washing these every night? When you go into work, do you change out or wear these all day long? Feb 28, 2014

Benjamin N: When going out to Sturgis I spent about 8 days in these and only rinsed them out once. Temps were over 90 on most days and smell, or general grime was not an issue. I did wear a under armor compression short under these at all times though. As far as wearing them at work I do not. If your job requires alot of walking aruond I think the seams on the inside would get a ittle bothersome. I do like this product andd highly recomend it, people can not tell you have them on and they are comfortable even off the bike as I found out when we walked around Mt. Rushmore. I just wouldn't want to spend all day in them if i wasn't on the bike. Feb 28, 2014

Max Z: I wear compression shorts underneath, so no need to wash more than usual (but it doesn't get that hot in San Francisco).

Might be uncomfortable to wear all day, and sitting down people would notice the armor at the knees. I change out of them at work.

Tony D: I actually think these would be well suited for a woman. The lack of any shape in the front mean that I find them a little uncomfortable and restricting for extended periods. Perhaps they were designed more for woman than men!
They do feel like I am protected though and that was my primary motivation for purchase.

Mikhail L: It depends how tight your jeans are.
Norsorex pants don't really add too much bulk and they are comfortable.
Get them and see how they feel before buying Kevlar jeans.
Hope this helps.

Ricardo D: James, I am 5'10" and was at 190lbs wearing 34's in jeans and the XL fit me great, even a few pounds lost (I'm at 175 now) and they're still comfy. Go for the XL and you should be fine. You can always roll down the waistband a bit if they are too long. Apr 25, 2014

John S: When I ordered this product, I had to return to size up. I found that even though it is Lycra type material, that the armour prevents stretching in these areas causing it to size smaller. I'm a 36 waist and had to go from L to XL. My suggestion for you is L. Oct 8, 2013

They are snug but by no means tight as they stretch, and I find the pads stay put in proper location regardless of movement.

A shopper asked: I am considering base layer armor pants, comparing these Dainese Norsorex with the Klim Tactical Pant, and the Forcefield Pro Pant (at roughly 2.75 times the investment). How would the gear professionals, or a customer who has tried these, compare the three products? Oct 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph M: I have the Dainese Norsorex pants. The Klim offer more thigh protection but the Norsorex offer more knee padding. The Forcefield Pro offer a lot more protection than either the Norsorex or Klim. I have been very happy with the Norsorex but if money was not a problem, I would go with the Forcefield Pro. That being said I am perfectly happy with the Norsorex.
Hope this helps, Joe

Stephen G: I have only tried the Dainese pants so I can't compare the 3. I can say I really like the Dainese pants especially for the price. The pants are thin, light and pretty comfortable. I like that the pads are thin, you can't tell I'm wearing armor under my jeans. I haven't crash tested them but I'm assuming they'll offer decent protection. I would recommend them to anyone.

Micheal R: I have the Dainese Norsorex, which I frequently wear under a pair of Dainese jeans. I find them to be relatively comfortable and breathable.

Malcolm C: I wouldn't say these provide any insulation for warmth. They are thin where there aren't any pads, sort of like compression pants. But they do block the wind so you end up feeling warmer but not really a real cold weather solution. Oct 12, 2013
