Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants
Great quality and fit, these pants live up to hype
These pants fit super well in the size advertised. They're a bit long so they won't ride up when the knees are bent, but they gather nicely over any boot. A decent amount of airflow; a bit warm in the hot sun; but, hey, they're black leather pants. I wish they had at least one pocket, but it's worth adapting. The armor in the knees fits well and can be slightly adjusted inside the leg pocket with Velcro. I had to get used to the high ride of a motorcycle pant, but I've always ridden in Levi's 501s -- not the wisest solution for protection. I don't doubt these pants will last a long time and provide solid impact and abrasion protection in the event of the dreaded get-off.

Good Protection, High Price
These pants are high quality leather, and do the job. They were pretty much the only "over the boot" leather pants I could find. The knee pads are a bit bulky, and get in the way of gripping the tank, although I have gotten more used to them. The lack of pockets is also annoying, as I have to find places to put my phone and wallet.
Fit: I'm 6', 145lbs. I got the size 30 pants. These pants fit me extremely well in the thigh and hip area. I wish they were an inch or two longer, but I wear riding boots now, so it doesn't really matter.
Overall, I feel like the pants are protective, and fit well. I just feel they are a bit overpriced.

Good fit, comfortable on bike and pretty good off the bike. Leather seems good quality and the armor and padding sit well. Could use something, zipper or belt, to fasten to a jacket but the back goes up high so there is a lot of overlap. Easy zip over boots.

Great Pants to Match Jacket
Pants fit slightly larger maybe to accomaodate jeans if you would like to use it as an overpant. The Icon knee label is white and not black. The construction is durable and it breathes well. I like the padding in the hips and it rides up the lower back for the extra protection incase of a misfortunate slide should occur. I would have preferred the Icon label to be black and an option of being able to change the removable knee pad to a D3O knee pad, but other than that it's a good pant for on the street/canyon ride. Not really made for the track.

Pants were a perfect fit even tho there is no adjustment if they are too big or too small. The only two things I'd change are putting at least one pocket on it some where and they are a tad too long, for me at least. I'm 5'7 175 but it's should be an easy fix for a shop to do. Most importantly they don't rub or chafe my knees/shins. They are very comfortable. First time out I wore them for 6+ hrs with out being uncomfortable.

Overall they are great pants.
Overall they are great pants. Would like to see some sort of adjustments at the waist and a zipper down the leg would be a great

Protection, comfort and great style.
I have nearly a 1,000 miles on this pants so its well past time for a review.
Pros: Excellent leather protection in key areas. Padding in knee and hip spot on. Plenty of air flow! You'll want the liner on in the morning 35-45F. High hip backing gives a feeling of more protection in commonly missed area from other brands. Easy zip up and 2 snaps and you are nearly ready to ride. 360 zip for jacket attachment (highly recommend attaching the matching jacket). They feel worn-in already.
Cons: No pockets. They do fit a little large like jeans. The bottom portion opening at the ankles is fairly large. You can stuff into boots (Sidi Vertigo) or leave on the outside. Some rubbing wear on the inside portion of the knees but this is expected if riding aggressive with your knees clamped to the tank. Inner portion of calf area where the aramid and kevlar material seems to grab any sharp points on the bike.
ICON has created a winner in these pants for the Street Rider who wants a little more. These are my first leather pants and the comfort, protection and styling goes a long way. I am usually a 36-38" waist depending on cut and 35-36" inseam so finding the right combination can be difficult. I chose the 38's for my frame. Which turned out to be a little bigger than I thought. I plan on using these for a long time to come and hope that ICON continues to build on these pants as well as the jacket.

love the style and protection for my aggressive street use
Got these overlord pants as a gift and was overjoyed to receive them but, I was not too sure of the fit and come to realize after a few rides that the size 34 was indeed a bit too big and long for my frame (5' 10' med build @ 180 lbs; - 34 pant size). any chance there is a size 33?
The knee pads tend to hang low when standing/walking and the waist is not snug enough to keep them in place with the weight of the thick leather material so I'm always pulling them up..." baggy butt" as I was told by a female on-looker... oh well,
They could use an adjustable waist band or belt loops and maybe a small waist pocket for a key or money/coins would have been a really nice touch.
I'm looking to get the matching jacket and the zip around may help with the loose waist issue ( other jacket for now). Guess I'm stuck with them until I can get another pair or just have them altered... unless someone got a pair too small for them?
Overall, I like them and I would recommend them to other riders along with advice on sizing and fit.
