The sophisticated solution to your ventilated overpant needs. The Citadel mesh pant features Iron Weave mesh and nylon chassis, two-way inseam YKK access zippers and 3M reflective welds for a refined appearance. Reinforced with D3O knee impact protectors and nylon paneling, all with ICON’s proven overpant fit. The Citadel Mesh Pant is a portfolio piece for the demanding riders warm weather kit.
Well built, highly recommended.
Recently crashed. Low sided, front tire slid out taking a turn in the wet, maybe about 35mph, other than some abrasion and a few superficial scars the worst the pants got was a small tear on the right knee, but it's not substantial enough to make me retire the pants or even to try and see if I could repair the tear. I was lucky to be geared up and suffered no severe injuries, and I was incredibly impressed with how my gear held up.
As far as the pants themselves go, I found the sizing to be appropriate to the size chart and recommendations in the video. The armor in the knees is adjustable up/down via the use of a multi-tiered pocket. There is no hip armor, there also is no liner.
The pants are meshy and flow air well, but the pants are reinforced with smaller gauge mesh and solid textile in many places so on hotter days you'd best wear short pants underneath and change to full pants when you get to your destination.
There is a simple belt that is used to adjust the waist. It functions fine, but I did notice the teeth on the buckle have begun to fray the web. If you pull the belt as if to tighten it as you open the buckle you mitigate the "bite", but a replacement of a D-ring style belt or a side-release buckled belt from a Mil-Surp store might be appropriate.
My only real gripe with these pants is lack of pockets. It has pockets on the seat, but if you are like me you ceased to put your wallet back there years ago because sitting on objects tends to be uncomfortable. I'd like it if it had some forward pockets, but it would block the biggest panels of mesh on the front of the thighs.
I've taken to wearing a backpack and/or bringing a tank-bag as I commute every day on the bike, so the lack of pockets isn't a deal breaker for me.
Great price right now, too. Get them while they are available!

Great but check sizes...
It is great gear. The pants are super I wear a 2xl size and this ones were too small and too long.

These are nice pants. I think they are a bit long and a bit loose. In denim jeans like levis I wear a 34/36 waist and 32 inseam. I purchased these pants in size xl and they were way to baggy and long; I returned that pair and now have size L and they fit much better. Perfect over pants and acceptable over a pair of shorts. The build quality is great, all zippers work great. Not sure what's up with the big metal belt buckle, not a very paint friendly way to hold your pants up. No front pockets, not a deal breaker but I kinda like having front pockets. Ventilation is great, looks are awesome and hopefully I won't find out how well they work in a crash.

David D:I ordered the XL and they were sized as an overpant for a 36 inch waist. I have a 34in waist so returned them and ordered the large. I had the same concern so I asked customer service and they confirmed these waist sizes on L and XLFeb 18, 2014
ARTURO V:Dont know. I am 36 waist, i have XL and feels a little bigger for me, so I could have bought size L Buy I could Worn base layers under the jacket during fall/winter, so probably get the size that you mostly use in Jackets.Dec 29, 2014
ALLEN G:Jin - I bought the 2x, and had to return them being that they were too small and I have a 40-42" wait in levi's jeans. I see that they have the 3x now in stock, so I might have to pull the trigger on these.Jun 1, 2015
Austin B asked:The video says these pants have hip protectors but nowhere else I've looked, including icon's website says anything about hip protectors. I just want to check for sure, do these pants really have hip protectors or not?Jul 8, 2014
