Icon Compound Overpants
good quality. .a bit stiff until you break them in
No regrets. .love them, yes even for girls. Really like the leather placement. My only problem was how stiff they are at first. Pants eased up after a few uses.

Great protection and got on sale
Nothing protects like leather, but it can be a bit heavy. These pants are a good compromise as they have ballistic nylon in non-impact areas to make the pants more comfortable and a bit lighter. That said they are HEAVY. BIG zippers and snaps and heavy cow hide on the places that count. The hardware and build quality on them is impressive. The bottoms can be trimmed if, like me you suffer from SARS (Short Assed Rider Syndrome). The only thing that would have made them better is possibly including hip armor (or at least pockets to add some). Otherwise nice pants.

Fit/Finish/Protection BIg Thumbs Up
These pants are really nice and far exceeded my expectations. I did not expect them to be of this caliber and they are really nice. No hip protection, but the knee protection seems to be top notch. Leather is of a very high quality. Hope I never have to test them, but know I am safe if I need to. Would be very warm in hotter climates, but fall spring, and winter they do offer some nice wind breakage. They do breath through the textile, but ultimately would not want to wear on a 90 degree day.

I LOVE these pants!
As a moderately tall but leggy girl at 5'7" and 144#, with a 34-36" inseam, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find something that fits and protects. I have literally been searching over a year. I have been eying these- but as a man pant, I was hesitant. I had tried a few other man pants, but even they are high waters for me (usually top out at 32 inseam), especially on the bike. Most of them also fit like a potato sack on the top end and I can pull them off when all buttoned up (I imagine that wouldn't work well in a pavement slide!), so bad everywhere.
But- when these went on closeout, I got nervous I'd lose my chance to try them. I hesitated long enough to lose the option for black, but then finally ordered two in white. I wear a 32, so I got a 30 and a 32 to try (I didn't want to risk a sell out of my size). The 30 is PERFECT. They are long enough (no cutting for me), and they are the ONLY pair I have tried that I can actually move around in, and swing my leg unimpeded over the saddle. By now it is in the 50's, and they keep me warm on the way to work in the morning, and I can layer under them with no problems. They are easy to get on and off, so great commuter pants.
They feel substantial, and the leather is thick and the textile tough feeling. I could not be happier. I sent the 32 pair back, and Revzilla customer service hit an ace again. The return ship label option is half what I would pay setting up shipping myself, and all the particulars (box weight, addresses) are filled in automatically. I dropped the box off at my local UPS, and my money was returned within 2 days.
I feel great wearing these pants- and am looking at the Q&A to decide if I should go for the mesh for warmer weather. I hope they don't sell out! I also hope they continue this model in some form, I've tried the rest, and finally, I bought the best!

Exactly What I Was Looking For
I've put around 500 miles on these pants now and can honestly say these are a great purchase. Haven't come off the bike with these yet but I am confident these will prevent the need for skin grafts.
Pros: tough, heavy leather, flexible for walking and riding, easy on/off, easily fits over boots, cheap price.
Cons: little to no air flow (but sweating is a norm in Texas), armor is useless (buy strap on)
4 star product due to no air flow but 5 stars for what's to be expected based off description
Pants do run large as other reviews have stated.

Good pants for the price
Good pair of pants for the price. Would be better if they put hip armor in, or atleast pockets for them. I wear a 36-38 pants, ordered a size 34 because a 36 wasnt available. Worked out good. Any smaller and they wouldnt have worked as overpants. Being leather they are heavy but not noticeable on the bike and barely notice off the bike.

Great dual purpose pants
First off, as always, props to Revzilla for the speedy delivery and awesome customer service helping me pick these out. The pants are great. Lots of airflow and they fit just fine over jeans or whatever I'm riding in. And if I want I can cinch them up a little tighter and just wear them out as pants for a day of riding. Air flow seems to adjust depending on how i position my legs, and the knee pads slide down a little when walking but in a riding position they're right where they should be. All in all a great buy for the clearance price I got them for
