Icon Anthem Mesh Over Pants
Great over a part of gym shorts.
I like these over pants and they fit great over a pair of shorts. Riding in AZ these pants breathe great in the valley when it is hot and then give just enough protection from the cooler temps when going up into the mountains/canyons. Only knit pick I have with the pants is the stretch areas above the knees needs to be larger so the backs of the pant legs don't ride up as much when moving on the seat in the canyons. Great pants for the money and size is just like video stated.

Great Protection for the money
I commute almost everyday. The buckle is riveted to the mesh so it will rip out if you trash the pants; I treat my gear right so it is not a problem. I went down on the street last week and these pants only had a slight scuff. My older mesh jacket from another manufacture did rip bad on the forearm and my arm got bruised but these pants worked great and I didn't have any leg injury at all. These pants are an affordable, big step up from jeans and will save your legs/knees when you go down. I got the grey pants and they look like a blue/green/grey color :-/ but i didn't want black because I'm in Florida and cant do black gear with the sun. I wear size 30 pants and jeans and i got size 30 and they fit great over my work pants. You can adjust the position of the knee armor in the pants with separate knee pockets in the pants. Good Affordable Armor.

Good with mods
These over pants are incomplete as they come. There is not a good way to hold them up. I want an overpant to be loose so I can get them on and off easily, but that left the waist too big. My fix was adding clip-on suspenders, and that is working well. They should come that way.

major flaw in product
The buckel fell off and now i have to buy another pair which is going to cost a couple hundred dollars just because people do not know how to design their own product

Good but not "overpants"
I bought this with the matching Icon Anthem 2 jacket (which limited me to white since there is only one color in these pants).
First, these are not "overpants." I'm 6' 1", 205 lbs, and wear a 33" waist, 34" inseam in jeans. I ordered the 34" waist pants, but they fit like a pair of jeans. There is no way I could fit a pair of jeans or khakis under these. Also, since these don't have a zipper on the ankles, you won't be sliding these on over your boots.
That said, I bought these to have a good pair of hot weather pants. They are surprisingly more substantial than I expected from the pictures and videos. You'll still sweat in them if you're stuck in 100 degree heat in traffic, but as soon as you start moving again, you'll cool right back off. I actually think white is a good color for this niche as a summer pant, since they're cooler as a result, but a nice light gray or more neutral option would have been good also.
The armor is great and I didn't have to adjust the knee pads - they were spot on.
I also have to say the waist ratchet is a big improvement over my RevIt overpants that have snaps that pop off with the slightest twist, despite not being tight on my waist.

Does what it says
Great overpant by Icon. The video was spot on and these are great value for the outlay. They fit great as an overpant, I wear them on my commute to work over my scrubs and they are a bit more loose, but they are made to go over jeans. The armor sits well once adjusted in the pockets and the pass through pockets make filling up at the station easier. Would definitely recommend.

Awesome, but a few things.......
They are really nice. My only two complaints is they are sized for those with long legs. I ordered to size, and they are difficult to get over cargo shorts (waist is fine once on, just getting it there is a process) and they are long. Like under the heels of my boots when I walk long. I am 5'10", and most of my height is from my legs and they are still a little long. Would still recommend.

Weird knee armor
The pants are nice, the fit is good (not too baggy), the air flow correct but the knee armor is...bizarre. When sitting on the motorcycle it fits nicely around the knee cap but when standing up it falls at about mid-shin level... There are two pockets, one for short legs and the other for long legs to adjust but unless you have cricket legs, they don't make much of a difference.
So, a nice product but you have to assume that the pants would actually slide up in case of a crash to protect your knee.
