Icon Hypersport Pants
A hot exhaust will burn a hole if your leg touches it
I'm 5'8, 185 lbs and purchased these in size 36 at a store, so I was able to try the different sizes before I bought.
It was my first pair of leather pants. They were a little long but I figured I could deal with that. The smaller size was too tight in the waste.
Everything from the knee up is great. After riding with them, they are just too baggy below the knee.
I was very disappointed that a hole was burned in the material they use at the bottom of the leg from making contact with a hot exhaust pipe. I can't really ride with them anymore because that hole catches on the bike... not very safe.

Non-Skin Tight Leather Protection
These are one of the few "relaxed" fit options if you are looking for pants that offer leather abrasion resistance.
The pants fit true to size, I am 5'6", 160 lbs, 34" waist. I bought the 32" size to account for any material stretching during normal wear. Even with the stated waist being 32", I can get at least 5-6 solid "clicks" when buckling the waist strap.
One of the options that riders of all sizes I believe will appreciate is the adjustable height knee protectors. Simple, but it's a mystery that more manufacturers just don't incorporate them into the pants.
If I can give any negatives about the pant, it is possibly the lack of any pockets for hip protection (most if not all manufacturers get the placement wrong on these anyway), and that the lower leg is stretchy nylon (you are most likely wearing boots to protect this area).

Nice quality and features for the price and fit welleven for me.
I'll start by saying I usually have a hard fitting clothes etc. I'm 5'8", stocky build and I usually have to comprimise on fit. (size 36 waist)These work well for me even if the pant legs are a bit long when walking but with my boots on I don't notice too much. When riding my ZX-14R they take up fine. The knee pad adjustment helps also. A little warm on hot summer days but all around great for my day rides and commuting to work. I ride in temps down to the low 40s and will soon find out how they do this autumn in Vermont. I would reccommend these for sure.

Excellent Value, design, quality and protection for the money!
I've been riding with these pants on my FZR 1300 for the past couple of weeks. The fit is very good and true (at least for my anatomically less than perfect Bod!) The knee protection and quality/thickness of the leather should provide very good protection in day to day street and highway tour riding. It's summer here in New England, I've ridden in very hot 95 degrees F, 90% humidity days and the pants stay pretty comfortable with regard to temperature control, venting and design breath-ability. These pants are a terrific value and add a superior level of safety and performance for any biker either sport or cruiser.The low profile look with the low lustre black finish fits right in with both the cruiser and sport touring crowd. A terrific investment in preserving body parts and skin surface!

Did anybody try to zip these pants to hypersport jaclet???
Wonderful pants, well made, fit perfectly (size 34 fits like a glove). Best fitting/looking pats I ever had--so why only 2 stars?
I take of 1 star for insufficient knee protection (same as for Overlord Resistance pants). D3O protector that Icon uses is too small for knee pockets. Just trash Icon protector and install something larger, and problem is solved. The other problem takes another 2 stars down. It actually made me completely baffled: Did Icon designers ever tried to zip up hypersport pants and Hypersport jacket? That is did they ever try to do this while wearing both? Firstly, because pants zipper is on the inside (guess to make pants look nicer) it is almost impossible to zip them to jacket, and when you finally manage to do this, and check yourself in the mirror... whoa, back of the jacket is pulled up and over the upper edge of pants... looks like you have a sack of potatoes under the jacket. The only solution was to cut out the zipper from the pants, and saw it on the outside. Now the pants look far worse then Dainese and Astars pants that come with zippers sown outside that are of-course partly hidden. My is now just hanging on the outside and very obvious, but at least now I can zip pants and jacket together, and then they both look okay.

Icon Hypersport Pants - great value
Bought for my husband. He says - Icon Hypersport Pants are a great value. They are a good touring pant, as long as you pack REV'IT! Acid H2O Rain Pants.
I vary base layer according to the season. When riding in hot summer weather, I use Terramar silk longsjohns. I use a synthetic Under Armour longjohns in cooler weather or if rain is expected during a long tour.
Depending on your build & the fit, you may want to consider suspenders (don't laugh). The pants can ride down over a slippery base layer.
They fit the same as my Levi jeans. Well made. Not garish.
Negative - no pockets. Fortunately, my Klim ADV jacket has plenty of pockets.

Best pants hands down.
Great match with the Hypersport jacket. Can be zipped together or just wear your normal gear. Pants look awesome. Ventilation is top notch. Fit is slightly small. Super comfortable on and off the bike. Great use of the zipper on the back of the heels to slip on your boots. Adjustable knee D30 plates. Overall great leather and textile mix. Don't forget no pockets. Highly recommended.

Love these pants
I am a skinny size 28, 5' 6" and these pants fit perfect. They're not too tight and there is still room to move around. I'd definitely say they are a more relaxed fit and will look good going over a pair of boots (for ex. I wear them with Chippewa cowboy style boots and it doesn't look weird). The knee pad adjustment is a great feature and when I am in riding position they cover my knees and shins perfectly at the "short" setting. The pads do not interfere with my almost knee high boots as well. So far they have easily kept me warm and do not feel too hot in warmer conditions. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a pair of low key leather pants that fit perfectly between harley leather style and sport bike style. Also seem like they will protect me in a fall and I like how high up they go up my back as well as the rollerblade style belt/velcro tighteners.
