Icon Overlord Riding Jeans
First pair of riding pants, very happy.
I'm normally a 32/33, but the 32 was very tight, 34 was perfect. Size up one to be safe. I'm 6'2", the length of the size 34 is perfect in the riding position. Thick, quality material all around. Behind the knee can get a bit sweaty, but other than that they are plenty cool when you're moving. The adjustable position of the knee armor is nice. Love the elastic portion around the knee, makes them much more comfortable than regular jeans in the riding position. Haven't tested the pants against the road and hope not to.

Good riding jeans
I read that these jeans tend to run small so as usual I went to my local motorcycle riding great store and tried them on I am 6ft 170 and wear a 34 in Levis and these jeans are very tight on 34 I tried 36 and they fit much better like my other jeans do now these jeans are heavy and can be hot when stopped in traffic or light for a while but they are very very comfortable once broken in and once you wash them once ( recommend by hand ) initially very stiff but now they are just like any other jeans I wear great protection they are also long but I don't mind I had them fixed and its all good

Excellent style and protection, great value.
REVs awesome shipping, nice fit up top, extra wide tho from knees down, I'm a 30x30, they only come in a 30x32 so was gonna have them hemmed anyway-will also taper the sides a little. Overall great value!

SAVED ME TWICE
I wear these and the Spaztyk jacket. Was in 2 crashes on Okinawa while in these. Both crashes didn't involve much slide. I was going relatively slow for both. Maybe 40 - 60 kph on the high side and maybe 15 - 25 kph on the low side. saved my legs from a great deal of hurt both times! They aren't messed up at all.
I will point out that these rub the back of my knees while I ride, just like normal jeans. So if normal jeans bother the back of your knee after hours on the road like me, just know its going to happen with these as well.
Would recommend these to anyone.
Make sure to get one size up! Trust me, these run small a size. Had to ship back my first ones to get a bigger size.

Worth the money.
It wasn't easy for me to spend as much as I did on these riding jeans. But I am very glad I did.
I recently bought my first bike and then these as my first riding jeans. Because of this I can't compare these to other products.
What I can say,
These are obviously going to be a lot heavier than regular jeans. This makes them significantly hotter, especially when it's humid.
I'm not a huge fan of the knee pad on the outside of the jeans. I would rather not have it, but jeans that don't have it usually offer less protection than this model.
Size was about normal. I overshot and ordered a 38 the first time and had to return them for a 36. I had no problems with the revzilla return process.
I hope I never have to change this review to say how they fared in a crash.
When I considered other jeans, the Overlord really hit the middle ground between protection and affordability.

Closest thing to having protection before moving up to leathers. Fit is correct to measurement sizing and over all have a skinny jeans feel which is good if you did go down and need the protection they are a tight enough feel to keep the knee pads in place. They are a kool looking style piece that look good when you get off you bike and go in to a diner for lunch.

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.
