Good Pants Firstly, these things run big. I took my natural waist (over my belly button and love handles) and ended up fitting a pair fully two sizes smaller than the size chart said. I would just go with your jeans size to start. I also think they are bit short. Other than sizing I like these pants for the money. The aren't the most technically advanced this or that but they do what you expect. Air flow is decent with the mesh panel exposed and the two hip pockets will fit a wallet, phone, keys, etc. The knee pads can press a bit but I found the discomfort temporary. I think the stretch panels above the knee took a couple of rides to soften up. The hip padding is pretty minimal. The pants are not waterproof without the liner but will be fine is a short drizzle. Just don't sit on a wet bike. It will seep through without the liner. I haven't worn them out with the liner in but the material suggests significant sweating will occur. It's like a pant-shaped tarp which means it won't breathe. On the plus side it will probably be really cozy in the winter. April 14, 2014
slid out around 35 mph and saved my knee These pants are great! As stated in the summary I slid out around 30-35 mph and my knee took the brunt of the impact... a cager brake checked me and the front tire locked up on some gravel after having the pants for only three days :( Joe Rocket is an extremely good brand and the pants held up well. They even offered to send some extra fabric to patch it up. The pants basically just split the seams before tearing through. As for the waterproof capabilities, I never got wet through them but they do hold a lot of water as the waterproofing layer is beneath the textile. Overall a great pair of pants definitely recommend! 2007 Ninja 650r March 28, 2014
Knee proportions are wrong. Terrible zipper quality. I'm very disappointed with the overpants. They are the correct length, but even with the knee pads in the lowest setting, the knees are several inches too high, making them painful to wear for more than a few minutes. I don't know that they would offer any real help in a crash due to being positioned incorrectly. The only way that these would fit me is if you took four inches out of my leg above the knee and moved it to my leg below the knee. Did they test these on a person with normal proportions? If someone used the knee pads in the highest setting, their leg below the knee would have to be *twice* as long as their leg above the knee. Your best bet is to buy a few sizes up and then hem the bottom. Hope you have fat legs. A major factor in purchasing these overpants was the advertised "hip padding." However, the two pouches for the hip padding are empty. No hip padding. There were better pants for the same price that I would have gotten if I'd known that these didn't have any hip padding included. The zippers are terrible quality. I struggle with them every single day. What should take a few seconds ends up taking a couple minutes. At first I thought I just needed to get used to them and learn the trick to keep the zippers from getting stuck, but 90 days later using them every day they still get stuck every single time.

Easy on and off Solid overpants. Good protection, comfortable & look good. Very simple to get on and off. The only drawback is the zippers. They get snagged frequently on the liner. This seems to happen with a lot of gear though. The Velcro strap around the ankle could be a bit longer for a tighter fit during inclement weather. February 21, 2014
Overall Very Satisfied I use these as over pants and they work pretty well. They do seem to run a little small but expected that considering I'm wearing them over blue jeans. The only concern I have is about the rain suit insert. I've never seen a rain suit you wear on the inside of your gear. I removed the rain insert and haven't worn it at all…. likely never will. These pants are super comfortable, have long zippers on the legs for easy on/off, removable panels for more airflow. Very satisfied. Recommend! February 17, 2014
These are wonderful in cold weather. I have used these in the snow and rain and never got cold or wet. These are fantastic in the winter. i am sure they are also good in the summer. Only flaw i have found so far is you have to watch and make sure the zipper doesn't catch the watterproof fabric. February 10, 2014
Highly Recommend I bought these along with the Alter Ego 3.0 jacket. He loves the fit and comfort of them. He was concerned they would not fit over his clothes. They do. Definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great pair of seasonal riding pants ! January 23, 2014
Great fit and styling. We'll thought of features. Good design. The fit is comfortable . Totally waterproof . November 28, 2013

JerseyDevil: 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.

Andenthal: Riding pant.
I have worn with shorts underneath with no issues. Denim pants will likely not be comfortable

RevZilla: The Joe Rocket Alter Ego 2.0 Pants are meant to be a stand alone riding pant, however, they can be worn as an overpant if you were to size up. We also have a great selection of pants specifically designed and sized to be worn as Overpants.

RevZilla: 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. Mar 15, 2013

Jay B asked: 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. Nov 18, 2013

Corey C: 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.

Louis Renaud c/o J. B: the alter ego is smaller on the waist than the ballistic I think. I needed suspenders with the Balistic but not with the alter ego. I have a large size and short on the legs. Now I mesure 30 in the inseams and I have a 36 waist.
Depending where you live you have to think about warm clothing inside the pants. For me they are perfect for normal riding even in the cooler fall but would be to tight for more cloths inside then for colder weather.
They are great in the hot weather on account of the removable strip. I rode Mexico with shorts and the pants and never was i to hot. Good luck

jeff b: Jay,

I still have the Alter Ego pants (XL short) but I no longer wear them. The reason? They are HUGE in the waist. I like a comfortable (roomy) fit, but this is ridiculous in my opinion. The quality is very good, however, so if you're looking for this sort of fit you'll love them. By the way, my waist is 35-36.Good luck!

francis m: I am 36 in the waist and my friend loan me his L before I purchased my XL. The waist was fine and the length was good. My reason for getting the XL was because the knee pads pressed on my kneecaps an caused me discomfort in the L. I found I had the same problem with the XL and after removing the knee pads the discomfort went away. Nov 18, 2013

Michael A: I ordered the XL in the Alter Ego and they fit me fine. My waist is 38 and hips are 42. My XL pants are still roomy, but I doubt that I could wear the Large. If you have a 36 inch waist you are probably going to want the Large size not XL. Nov 18, 2013

Larry W: I have a 36" waist and they are loose if not wearing pants or shorts underneath. When wearing jeans under they are a great fit. Nov 18, 2013
