Took my first spill unscratched
Just laid my bike down for the first time today. Low side at about 20mph. Had these on and walked away without a scratch. Scuff marks on the hip and knee. Pretty sure these saved me from a decent road rash. Super glad I got them.

I think they breath just fine while moving, and OK at stop. Mind you I'm only 5'9" 160lbs so I'm not normally prone to overheating, but I'd rather be sweaty than bloody.

Also a lot of people complain about the knee armor being too low. I suspect most people try to wear these at their hips. They're supposed to be worn up at your navel. I button mine right at the navel and the knee armor fits just fine in the top pocket.

Great Pants
I've had these for 3 months now and put on 5,000 kms through a wide range of conditions. I'm not using my bike everyday, but I like to go out in everything and be comfortable. What i like:
great fit with design that fit into the small of the back - super comfortable and seals up well with jacket in riding position.
Length is perfect - a little long for walking through the grocery store, but just right when on the bike (my legs are 33" inseam and i got Med).
Material is comfortable to wear all day and the venting combined with the ability to open side zipper from the top is huge on the 30 degree (90F) days. Had two 10 hour days this summer through the full range of temperatures and conditions and never felt i wanted something different.
Zippers work well and allow me to easily take off pants without taking my boots/shoes off.
Came to understand and appreciate the design of the inner waterproof layer. In a downpour you wouldn't want to be without it, just to keep the crotch puddle on the outside. Light rain not necessary. Elastic cuff on bottom cuts off airflow on the cold days.
What i think is less than perfect:
Pockets work well, but they are a bit ugly.
Waist cinch inevitably twists off (but doesn't really have any function that i need)
Knee pads are probably good protection and are fine around the city, but for trips over an hour or so they end up pressing on the kneecap and for me that eventually produces discomfort (I tried making them smaller, then simply removed them - now its file) The only way i can think of solving the problem would be to design in more articulation in the knees. (My bike has me in the sportbike position with knees at more than 90 degrees - wouldn't be a problem if knees were straighter)

Great Multi-season Pant
Being a taller guy (36" inseam) I was unsure if these pants would fit as pants tend to ride up when your on long trips on the bike. I wear Alpinestar S-MX2 boots, with low ankle and the pants are always covering what they need to cover. These pants fit a little larger then advertised which is what I wanted as it allows me to layer up when needed.

They are put together very well and the zippers have held up to some strong abuse. I am also impressed with the rain liner as it feels more like a rubbery material rather than a plasticy material like my jacket rain liner.

The only complaint I have is that there aren't enough pockets on the pants. It would also be nice to see a jacket loop on the back so I could link my gear together to prevent it from riding up.

Overall, great bang for the buck and they offer a great amount of versatility. These pants will continue to see a lot of use.

Great Pants
So far I haven't had the luxury of testing out the waterproofness of these pants, however I have rode in them several times. In warm weather with the waterproof liner removed and the vents opened there is a lot of airflow (this is in max of mid 80's weather). When the liner is in on colder days (mid 50's) they keep you nice and warm.

The knee pads unfortunately aren't positioned great for my build, but if I pull them up a little bit and adjust them when I sit down I can finagle them into position.

Perfect all weather pants
I'm 5'11" with 32" waist and 32-33" inseam. The medium regular fits perfect. These pants when worn as over pants with the liner has kept me warm in freezing temps and got me home dry in a Vancouver rain storm. With the liner removed they are perfect for nice spring/fall days. With a pair of shorts on underneath and the mesh panel exposed these pants will keep you cool during the hot summer days. It's like 3 pants in one. Perfect for unpredictable Vancouver weather where we can get 3 or 4 seasons in the same day. I would highly recommend these pants. My only complaint is that there is no tail bone protection.

Just a little small
I bought these to replace the Joe Rocket Ballistic 7.0 pants after a crash did them in. I thought they would fit the same, and they almost do that. With the large tall Ballistic 7.0 I was just in the middle of the velcro waist adjustment. The Alter Ego waist adjustment is slightly different and tighter. They do fit but

Very good in all regards EXCEPT, as reported by others, the side zipper gets stuck a lot. A real defect in the fabrication/design. The zipper itself is good but some of the material gets caught. This will keep you from getting in quickly. Not a problem getting them off.
If you have any gut at all, consider suspenders. Good quality. Great dollar value. Fast shipping.
NOT waterproof but with the inner rain liner they should be fine. I used with pull-over rain pants.

All around good overpants
These pants are very comfortable! The knee armor aligns perfectly, and the removable strip that exposes the mesh is a huge plus for warmer weather. The weatherproof liner is very finicky, and the zippers constantly get caught, but most people won't be taking it in and out all the time. The side zippers can also be fairly bothersome sometimes. Overall, I would recommend an upgrade to the zippers by the manufacturer, but don't let it deter you from these pants. They are a little "storm trooper" as far as the style goes, but that's to be expected.

Good product for the money
Just started riding a motorcycle for the first time last fall. Was looking for inexpensive but good quality pants to wear over regular clothing. I am 5'7", 185lbs with a 34" waist. These are designed as an over-pants and are oversized, however I still went one size up and got an XL but got it in the Short size. It fits perfectly over my jeans or dress pants.

The knee pads align fairly well, just slightly lower than I would like them to be and have to adjust them occasionally. These do not come with hip protectors nor do they have a spot to install them, which I wish they did have.

The zippers can get caught often, especially if you try to zip them quickly. If you take your time and tuck the fabric back, you should be fine. What is nice about the zippers is that the ones on the leg open all the way up to the knee to easily get these on and off without taking off your riding boots.

These do feel a bit like snow pants and definitely get warm when you stop, but are very comfortable when riding. I took the liner out right away and rode in 50 degree weather with jeans under and I was very comfortable. I can't see needing the liner unless riding in very cold weather. I do wish there was a little more air flow, but all in all these are quality pants.

The epitome of mediocrity
I've had these pants for quite a while now. At this point, I wish that I had looked elsewhere for pants, but I got these because they were the match for my alter ego jacket. Overall, they're ok, but after owning them a while, I believe your money would be better spent on something else. Being my first pair of riding pants, I feel like they served me well, especially when riding below freezing, but they have their quirks.

The pros
They have an inner waterproof liner that is definitely waterproof. It would have been better if the liner was made onto the pants. They do excellent in cold weather. In warmer weather, they have a flap that you can remove that lets in more air. They have CE rated knee pads and have padding for the lower back. They have loops that allow your pants to be connected to your jacket. The length and waist sizing was pretty much spot on. The pockets are very utilitarian - easy to access and have enough space for your phone, wallet, keys, etc. They're easy enough to put on and take off, even with the waterproof liner installed.

The cons.
The adjustment straps at the waist are pathetic. The straps roll over and bunch up on themselves inside the loops making it difficult to get the pants adjusted correctly. The retention loops for the waterproof liner are very easily torn. The top button doesn't stay buttoned. The retention loops to connect the pants to a jacket are easily torn. The pants aren't any good for hot weather even on the open highway. The knees are very uncomfortable if you're riding in shorts without the waterproof liner in because there are some pieces of material that dig into your knee. Last but not least, these pants make you look like an astronaut and they don't make them in all of the colors that match the alter ego jackets.

I am generally satisfied with how these pants have done, but really only because I used them in sub-freezing temps. If you're riding in a hotter climate or only a fair weather/summertime rider, look at some different pants.

Are these meant to be a riding pant or an over pant?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: From Joe Rocket website:
The Alter Ego 2.0 pants are over-pants, pre-sized to be worn over your street clothing.
I ordered them in my "natural" pant size and have no problem wearing them over dress pants.
Do these pants have a zipper at the top to attach to my Joe Rocket Blaster 4.0 jacket?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Sadly, these do not have the 8" connection zipper. Currently, the only Joe Rocket men's textile pants that include the zipper are the Phoenix 3.0 and Ballistic 7.0.
How do these fit in the waist and hips compared to the Ballistic 7.0 pants? I bought an XL in the Ballistic 7.0, and they are huge in the waist (I measure a 36" natural waist). I was thinking of ordering a Large in the Alter Ego, but if they don't fit the same as the Ballistic and are less roomy, I may need to get another XL.
Jay B on Nov 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Jay I wear a 38-40 in jeans and got the 2xl based on zilla's recommendations. They are a bit big on me but with the rain liner in and on cold rides with thermal layer on too they fit good. Being a little big they can always be taken in with the velcro straps at the waist so I'd follow the size chart (I seem to recall I even ordered the XL in these since I never wear 2XL in anything and realized they where too small and sent them back).

They're a good riding pant that I can use all year round. I've warn them in 36 degree weather spitting sleet to 90 degree + days. Hope this helps.
With the liner in does the pant still function as a overpants and do I have to take off my boots to get the pants off?
jessica p on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is a bit of a tight fit with the liner in but yes, they can be worn as overpaints w/ the liner in. I have a pair of Dinesen SSC Alpha short riding boots and they do come in / out of the paints w/o the liner but are a little difficult to get in / out with the liner. Frankly, I never use the liner as I see rain protection falling into something I put on head to toe if needed. I like the paints though and have bought two pair in the past 5 years.... don't ask about the first pair but suffice to say the road protection works
I have a pair of the original Alter Ego pants, and the small-diameter coil-type zippers along the outside of each leg has snagged, broken, and is no longer usable. I also have a pair of the Joe Rocket Phoenix pants, which have no liner (they are designed for summer riding), but they have a larger molded-type zipper on the outside of the legs. Does the new Alter Ego pant have this same larger molded zipper that might hold up better to repeated use? I'm trying to decide if it's worth finding a seamstress to replace both leg zippers in my original pants, or if I should just buy a new pair of the new model.
Aaron P on Feb 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Coil type. I have these and while they are otherwise very well made, are comfortable, perform excellently, and look good, I would say their weak link is still the coil type zipper on the legs. Beefier than I remember on my original Alter Ego pants, but they still snag on the inner flap every time. Have not had one fail, but if your original pants are still in good shape and offer you confidence in their protection ability, I'd say it might be worth having better zippers installed in your old ones.
How would be altered ego pants here to the ballistic pants? Specifically in terms of waterproof protection and cold weather riding? I have a pair of ballistic series pants purchased new in 2000 with the removable liner that I have a waterproof shell and wondering how these compare to those.
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought the alter ego jacket and loved it. Then I found out that they had pants that match so I bought these pants. These look and feel great and they match the jacket perfectly. They have the pads (armor) right where you need it. But one size larger due to you will be wearing pants and maybe maybe long johns. There is no doubt that they will keep you warm. Mine are water proof but I would not ride in bad down pours anyway. I hope this helps.
Is the waterproof liner in the Joe Rocket Alter Ego pants insulated?
A shopper on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The liner is not insulated but it makes the pants quite warm. In fact too warm for my daily riding which is usually 40 degrees or warmer. After using them a couple times, I took them out and have never put them back in. Without the liner in light rain I'm still dry. I've only gotten wet in downpours.
Where can I purchase some new knee pads for my Joe Rocket Alter Ego Men's pants? Thanks!
A shopper on Mar 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Never needed to replace mine - sorry
