Icon Overlord Riding Jeans
Cheap rivet button on the waistband.
Broke the button on the fly at the head where it was glued onto the post. Had to pay a tailor to replace the cheap hardware. Lots of "Irish pennants" or loose threads. Went over the pants and used a lighter to melt the loose ends so they wouldn't run. Pads shift around the knee area awkwardly.

My only gripe is that the sizing on these pants are off. The waist is really tight. I'm usually a 34 waist (33 when I have the option) In these I would get a 36. However, the length of the jeans are the opposite. The kneepad goes way below my knee about mid-shin, and the cuffs go about 4 inches past the bottom of my feet, even in a sitting down position. I'm by no means overweight and can comfortably fit into size 34/34 pants.
I can't size up because of the length of the jeans and I can't size down because of the waist. Other than the extreme sizing, everything about these jeans are perfect, which makes me jealous that I can't fit into them.

Very Happy with These
For what they are Their great. Good protection at a fair price all the other pants fit to tight I wear between a 34 and 32 depending on pant and got these in the 34 and was happy I did. After two full days of riding in them 8 hours a day I got a bit chaffed at the friction area so that why I gave a four for comfort. Plan to buy some of their other pants because I like em I like em allot

This product design works
I just got back from riding with the ICON Overlord jeans. I ride a ZX14R so I'm often tucked in a sports riding position. I rode with True Religion jeans because they had heavier material than regular jeans but I felt unsafe and my knees were exposed to the elements especially riding on the freeway with potential of being hit in the knee by a flying rock. I tried Speed and Strength Rage With The Machine, Rust and Redemption, and Bilt Iron Worker jeans. They all failed to protect the knee cap while in riding position so I returned them. The knee pads of these jeans left up and they don't cover the knee cap at all.
These ICON Overlord jeans has it all. Looks, comfort, design, protection, heavy material, adjustable knee pads that are very easy to remove and put back on, stretch at the knee when you are in a tuck position so bottom don't left up and show your socks or flapping at high speed and beat your shin. They do come long and I had them hemmed.
As you can see, I really like these jeans. I think they are will designed and ICON certainly put a lot of R&D money into it. That is why I believe they are worth what you pay for them. I hope I don't put them to the test, but I certainly feel safe in them.

These are well made riding jeans. The style and protection is great. I like the removable and adjustable knee armor. The denim also has a very slight stretch to it I think. This in addition to the elastic in the knees makes it easy to get on and off my bike.
They are very long and have more of boot flare than is evident in the video. I had them hemmed and tapered from the knee down to reduce the semi-bell-bottom look. I reduced the cuff to 7.5 inches wide seem to seem. They now look and feel much better IMHO, and fit easily over my boot. The knee protectors sit below my knee when standing but move up into place when seated on the bike. I just hope they are in the right place when needed.
Overall, awesome jeans.

ANOTHER SOLID PRODUCT FROM ICON
These pants are great. At $160, its a good value considering what you get. The construction is top notch, added adjustable knee protection and double layered in all the right places. My only concern was the fit. I'm 5'10, 175 lbs and normally wear a size 34" waist x 30" length. The waist was spot on, but the legs were two inches too long. Icon only offers these pants in a 34" length in my waist size. After I received them, I took them straight to my local tailor and she hemmed them 2" and the perfect length for $8. Great deal. Overall I would recommend these pants to anyone in the market for a nice pair of stylish riding jeans.

The Kevlar covers the critical areas. The outer combined with the inner knee pads appear to provide a high degree of protection from impact. These jeans are both rugged and comfortable - ready for a quick urban assault or a longer ride through scenic highways.
