Olympia Airglide 3 Pants 4.6 5 128 128
Great riding pants, but I expected no less from Olympia I expected a great garment from Olympia and got it. They may be underrated and less-talked-about than other gear makers, but it's a shame: their stuff is great. The pants were sized as expected, and are very comfortable to wear. I forget I'm ever wearing riding pants over my jeans. March 18, 2015
Good value. Armor that comes with the pants is inadequate I put Forcefield Armor in these right away, as the stock stuff was typically low budget. Everything else is what you would expect out of a good pair of ventiliated riding pants. The liner was pretty pointless for me, as I have heated gear and RevZilla only had the uggly gray version of these pants without the liner. March 16, 2015
fit and feel as comfortable. great design! highly recommend The features in these riding pants are one of the best designs. They are roomy comfortable and fit nicely over jeans as well as sweats. I feel much safer having the extra layer of protection for long rides. February 2, 2015
Great airflow Just one ride, but here's my take. I normal wear a 36 and have recently lost 20 lbs. Most reviews say they are true to size, but my 36 pair would pop the waist snaps on the bike with nothing on except bike shorts, weird. Easy return and re-order for the 38. All good now. Can get jeans and a belt under easy, very comfy. Tons of air flow. Did a 50F ride and needed my rain bib on to stay warm. They flood the tops of my boots with air. I haven't used the included rain pants, too hard to change out on a ride. Really like these, nice long inseam (I'm a 32) and they stay over the boots with knee fully bent, great, no hem for me. Seem very well built and will go great with my Columbia mesh jacket. Bring on the heat!! January 27, 2015
Good product the confort and air flow is amazing, for weather cool, this pants have liner December 15, 2014
Great protection and great fit Purchased to go along with my Dakar dual sport jacket. Fit was right on and the pants seems to offer a lot of options with and without the liner. Good airflow and easy entry. Like the side zip for adjusting boots. Purchased for warm weather riding and they are just what I was looking for - protection and good airflow. November 17, 2014
You won’t be disappointed I just received these pants a few weeks ago. I ordered them on a Friday (regular shipping) and they arrived on the following Monday. Exceptional service as usual. So on to the pants. I agonized over the sizing (since this was an online order and could not try them on), but ended up going with my jean size, as I intend to wear these as pants (i.e., just underwear and Under Armour compression shorts underneath), not over pants. I am 6’, 185 lbs with an athletic build. Here’s the part that I agonized over: I wear 32” jeans, but my waist measures in at 34”, so I could not decide between ordering a 32” or 34” waist. I ended up going with a 32” which fit a tad snug in the waist, but are definitely the correct size. 34” would have been too large as a pant, but probably OK as an over pant. I had them out for my first ride in them last week. I did 300 miles; the temp was mid 50 F and I got caught in a heavy downpour for about 100 miles. Appalling conditions for a ride, but excellent conditions for testing a new piece of kit. I was wearing underwear and Under Armour compression shorts underneath and had the liner installed. Temperature-wise, no problems; the liner kept me warm. Dryness-wise, surprisingly I was dry as a bone dry except for my butt due to sitting in pooling water for over an hour; again the liner did its job. Style-wise, I hit two restaurants and did not feel like I looked like a dork. Materials-wise, very impressive fabrics and armor. The adjustable knee armor is a nice feature for my height. Fit around the leg is perfect; no billowing up to 90 mph. Length could be a bit longer, as they ride up when on the bike, but in fairness I typically wear 32” W 34” L jeans. My cold-weather pants are Bell-staff Pioneers, which, in my opinion, are one of the most robust pants on the market, so I’d be critical of any failings if there were any significant ones. I cannot comment on their performance in warm weather, as this was a late-season purchase, however, the amount of mesh is quite good, so I expect they will do well in the hot weather. Bottom line, I would highly recommend these pants. Excellent pants from a great company and vendor. I believe you will be entirely satisfied with these pants. September 25, 2014
Why did I wait soo Long I'v been riding in these for about 2 months now. I wish I'd had them for the last 20 years, as my jeans really offered NO protection. I have never been down in them or riddin in rain With the liner in, so cant comment on that. They have kept me fairly dry in the occasional T-storm w/o the liner & no rain drop pain as with denim. They flow plenty of air, remain comfortable into the 90s, fit & finish is excellent. Ill be saving up for the jacket next. September 7, 2014

Jeff Trevor D: The closest match to the Airglide 4 jacket on Revzilla. Maybe I could have bought the 4 from somewhere else, but these will serve their purpose and the Revzilla reputation is growing on me if assistance was needed. Dec 12, 2014
George L: I have the Airglide jacket and it works, fits and looks great. I hope the pants will be as well made. Probably won't wear the pants or jacket in the heat and humidity of a FL summer, but then I avoid riding much in FL during July, August and September. Dec 8, 2014
ALBERT S: Because I wrecked in the first pair.
They are comfy and do the job well.
Nov 29, 2014
Robert K: Value, features, reputation. Nov 28, 2014
Tom C: I have an Olympia one piece suit with thinsulate liner. I thought these would work for three season and waterproof wear with the liner. Oct 20, 2014
Randy D: I am very happy with the Olympia jackets I already have (air glide and ranger) and I know Iâ??ll be happy with the pants if they are the same quality as the jackets. The airglide Jacket is a true 3 1/2 season jacket. Oct 16, 2014
Matthew B: Olympia quality. I have the Airglide 3 jacket and it is a superb product. I am assuming the pants will perform the same-protection, air flow and excellent fit. Oct 5, 2014
Nesbitt C: Want mesh pants that are stronger than Joe Rocket and easier to get on/off. Sep 29, 2014
Aaron S: I've been "squidding" it from the waist down, and it was time to get some protection. I like the multiple liners and knee/hip armor. Sep 26, 2014
Roger S: Needed something cooler than my Aerostich pants. Not as robust as the Stich's but work well in warmer temps. Have been quite comfortable wearing shorts under these from 60 degrees. Sep 20, 2014

Randy L: Seemed well designed for hot weather. Now that I have them, I am very satisfied and would recommend them without hesitation. With the included liner, you really don't need to take anything else on summer trips (except a rain suit, of course). Jul 24, 2014
John M: Appears to be top notch quality, great reviews and one of the few m/c pants that come in tall size for the larger person. Jul 24, 2014
Mike L: 2nd set
first ones were GREAT.
Perfect all weather pant.
Jul 22, 2014
Michael S: Keepers... great air flow! Jul 21, 2014
M I: This has been my riding pants for the past 3 years! I'm happy with it. I'd buy them again. They are light and aired and perfect for easy climates (I live in California). I also used them in the winters here (above freezing) with their liners in and additional longjohns and no electrics and they are great. Most of the time though, I wear just the pants without liners. I ride a Concours and I'm pretty well shielded by the big fairing. Jul 18, 2014
Michael H: To get some armor and to have the 3 season versatility and rain protection in one garment - And I like the pewter color because it should look pretty good with all of my jackets. Jul 1, 2014
Dale A: I chose these pants because I live in Florida and it gets hot here. The reviews sounded good and Revzilla has a great reputation for customer service. Jun 29, 2014
Jerod A: I have the Airglide 4 jacket and have been very happy with it so I wanted to purchase the matching pants to complete my gear. The price, along with my Revzilla cash made these less money than my local dealer even with 10% off from my rider certificate, thanks Revzilla! Jun 6, 2014

Jeff S: Matched my Olympia jacket May 24, 2014
Casey H: Tried these on at a local dealer. Great fit except for the knee pads were a little low, but I believe I can adjust those up some. The EZ Hem bottoms are excellent. I have short legs and can't wait to get them hemmed up.
Super comfortable. The legs zipping all the way to the hip made it so easy to slide on quickly and zip up.

Can't wait to go ride with these.
These will be my first "new" pants.... others have been hand me downs or bought used off the internet.
May 13, 2014
Timothy M: Good pairing with Olympia Airglide 4 jacket, great protection. May 9, 2014
David B: Purchased these to go with my Airglide 4 Jacket. Unfortunately, the inseam was way off for me (the pants came up to my nipples when testing their length). May 8, 2014
Gina K: Birthday gift for my husband, to match his olympia vented jacket. May 6, 2014
Ray W: I have the Airglide jacket, which I like. Anthony's video review convinced me this was a good choice. Apr 24, 2014
Christopher F: Recommended by RZA team when the AGV pants I got didn't fit right. These are super comfortable and will give me the venting and water proof protection I need for my upcoming cross country trip. Apr 20, 2014
Joel F: Choose these pants based on user reviews, price, and the fact that they were a mesh pant with a removable waterproof/insulated liner. Exactly what I was looking for. Apr 16, 2014
Donald R: Needed summer pants. I liked what I saw on the video. Apr 10, 2014
Christopher F: Brand was recommended by CS. Tried a AGV Telluride pant, but that is too tight in crotch...could barely get my leg over the bike. Rep said the Olympia should fit better. He did recommend the new quest but wanted to keep the cost down. Figure if these work, I'll save my pennies for a whole quest jacket pant combo next year. :-) Apr 6, 2014
Sandro R: Bay Area Rider's Forum recommendation for price+versatility. Apr 3, 2014
Gabriel T: Versatility. Mar 25, 2014

Ebrahim A: Purchased the Olympia Airglide 3 Jacket and I enjoyed riding my bikes all year round in cold and hot weather without any problem. After that I decided to give the matching pants a try and so far I am happy with them. Feb 5, 2014
Jon D: I decided to upgrade my riding armor this year. I just ordered and received the Olympia Air glide 4 jacket. I liked what I saw in the quality of the jacket, so after reading all of the great reviews of the pants, I decided to seal the deal. Jan 19, 2014
Harry W: Needed a pair of pants that I could wear in cooler weather and also for the hot Texas summers. I have the Air Glide 4 Jacket and they make quality stuff. Dec 25, 2013

Andrew S: Summer pants. Nov 25, 2013
Scott J: Good looking pants. They are a perfect match with the Airglide 4 jacket, which I have found to be an EXCELLENT buy. Oct 26, 2013
ben a: Needed all season pants, these fit the bill. Work well enough up to high 90s and humid as long as you keep moving, great in fall and spring, and decent in winter 40s with liner in. The air flow is great in the summer, acceptable in the spring/fall, and definitely need the liner in the winter to stop the airflow. Oct 25, 2013
Gerry L: So many postive reviews and Revzilla's excellent video reviews of products. Sep 28, 2013
Russell H: good reviews and matched up with the Olympia jacket. Just got them today, fit great and impressive quality! Sep 20, 2013
David B: After researching and reviewing many different types of pants and manufacturers I chose to go with Olympia. The reputation is near flawless and the versatility of this pant will eliminate the need for purchasing two or more different type of pants. Aug 19, 2013
A shopper asked: With a full length zipper, you can zip it UP in hot dry weather, tuck it to the inside of the leg and get good air flow. If it starts to rain, pull over, zip it down and you're good to go in the rain. May 26, 2011

mikejt: Yes, it does ... both the external shell and internal liner have zips from the cuff all the way up to just below the belt ... they are so easy to get on and off (with boots *on*) that I store the liner in my tank bag and when it rains (or we get a windy, cold, wet fog along the coast), I actually stop, pull off the shell, put on the liner, then the shell back on top. It takes less than five minutes to do all that (maybe faster if I wait until the rain is actually starting). Jul 7, 2011

Ed S.: Full length side zipper on the liner as well as the pants. I ride without the liner when it gets warm. I'll keep the liner with me in case of rain. I typically use these as two pants (liner and outer), first putting on the liner then the overpant. These are great. Feb 15, 2012
Reply to Ed S. Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
sxt173: Are you asking whether the waterproof liner has a zipper? No, it does not. It goes on like regular pants, so in your scenario above, you would have to take the pants off, but can still tuck the waterproof section towards the back and inner sides. Apr 17, 2012

VDawg: This is interesting...I never tried or even thought of tring to stuff the liner over to the inside>>>seems a bit much, but I'd have to try it....and maybe sometime I will. I just pull on my rain gear right over them, no problem. Jul 4, 2011

A shopper asked: I'm very confused by the size chart. I'm planning to buy the Mens Airglide Pants and my true waist is 43". However, my jeans waist size is 36. Now which is the size presented in the size chart? What size shuold I buy for the pants?

Aug 25, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
mikejt: Your mileage may vary depending on whether you plan on use them as overpants or not. I have a jeans waist of 35", but had to get the 38" to fit them over regular khaki's ... in fact, the 36" were a touch too small even when just wearing shorts underneath.

Mind you, the 38's are rather baggy on me, but I'd rather have that than a rather stiff band of Cordura squeezing my gut for 8 hours ...
Aug 31, 2011
Reply to mikejt Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
motopilot: I think that you can go with your jean size. My jeans are 38 and I wear the Ranger 3 pants in size 36 WITHOUT THE LINER PANT. I used to be a size 34 but gained weight due to a health issue. My Airglide pants are size 34 and I am planning on using them next season after I lose the weight. I hope that this helps :-) Jul 13, 2012

Mike1313: Thank you for all your answers.

I ended up buying a size 38" (I sent back the 43" -- they were way too large/long). The 38" are a big baggy for me (I'm still wearing 36" jeans), but on the bright side, I can easily use on top of jeans. I do also wear them directly over shorts and they are fine.

elektra: I wear a 31 Jean and bought the 30 airglide as 32 was loose. If you will wear them where you wear jeans you should use that size size as a guide. Maybe go one size up. Also I suggest calling revzilla as I have ways gotten good advice from them on the phone for any issue specific to my needs. Aug 31, 2011

ergray: I found that the pants are true to size, got 32 and fit like the suit that I use to work, they also have enough elastic on the sides to stretch 1 or 2 sizes up. Hope this helps. Jan 23, 2012

A shopper asked: I'm a 33'' waist and I plan on wearing the airglide primarily in hot weather with no liner. Can I go with a size 32? Jun 8, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
orangebanana: The pants do have a couple areas of elasticity for some give when needed, but I wouldn't recommend going with the 32 if you are 33 unless you intend on wearing nothing underneath. If you are wearing pants with a belt, you might find it too tight. I wear 31 waist, got the 32 airglides and they fit over my pants/belt with just slightest amount of stretch from the elastic areas. I think you would probably have too much stretch and they might feel way too tight around your waist. I would recommend you go with the 34 if you are 33 waist Jun 20, 2011
Reply to orangebanana Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
elektra: I would say yes. I am a 31 and the 32 was a bit baggy. I am very happy with the 30 which I use without the liner. They have elastic in the waist so a 32 will expand a bit. Also the smaller size is less baggy I have a slim build so the smaller size looks more trim. I'm vey satisfied over the last month. Good airflow. I'm using them as an overpant and even then the size down is good Jun 9, 2011
Reply to elektra Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Donald R.: I doubt it.
I'm a 36 and ordered 36. I can get them on over a pair of denim shorts, but not with the liner in. An inch less would be uncomfortably tight for me.
On the other hand, Revzilla has a very good return policy...

Kendall S asked: How snug are these? When it's warm, could I fit baggy cargo shorts underneath? Also, would you wear these as pants only or always as overpants? Nov 25, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Salim W: They're a relatively average fit, like a relaxed Levi's 501. When it's cold I sometimes wear full pants underneath, and it's not too cumbersome.

Certainly shorts will be fine.

In terms of pants or over pants, they are not something that is wear out to a bar or a party, but will serve you fine for riding to the market and wailing around without too many stares.

Dave S: The liners are not too snug, at least on me. (I'm fairly trim.)In the winter I routinely where these as pants, over a winter base layer if needed, or with my Ex-officio boxers the rest of the time. The have a full set of pockets and they look pretty cool also. I like these liners so well I'll wear them under my "waterproof" Kilimanjaro pants in the winter. Nov 25, 2013

Eric G: Well, I'm a 33" in the waist and I bought a 32. They fit perfect on me . I don't wear these as overpants. If you want to have cargo shorts underneath don't buy them small like I did.
By the way, these are very nice, I'd buy them again.

William P: I wear baggy cargo shorts underneath mine all summer long, no problem. I've never considered wearing them as pants alone but I guess you could. I strip them off when I get to my destination so I always have shorts or jeans on. Nov 25, 2013

Gregory G: You'll have no problem with baggy cargo shorts. I wear pant size 32/32. For some reason, these pants fit well with my regular pants and belt underneath AND fit well with just my bunders underneath. It's probably due to the elastic. I only wish the pants had cargo pockets on the thighs. I enjoyed those on my all-weather pants. Also, I couldn't find any full-zip pants that completely unzipped - ala basketball warmups - even through the waist. That way I wouldn't have to step out of and into the pants. Nov 25, 2013

A shopper asked: How can you hem these if there is velcro on the bottom? Jul 6, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
motopilot: The 'EZ Hem" means that the pant leg zipper stops about 6 inches short of the cuff of the pant so if you need to have them hemmed you won't have to worry about removing or replacing the zipper. The velcro can be easily cut anywhere in that 6 inch area without affecting the pant zipper. I am same size pants as you and have the Airglide pants. Love them! Depending on your preference you probably won't have to hem them if you don't mind some bunching when walking; on the bike should fit great!! Jul 13, 2012
Reply to motopilot Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Olympia refers to their pant bottoms as EZ-Hem because the side leg zippers stop six inches short from the bottom hem. One of the most difficult and costly alteration for a seamstress or tailor to perform is to remove, shorten, and replace zippers. With Olympia's finishing method this is not necessary and an alteration fee is minimal - should run about $15 to $20 max. Be sure you're fitted for length is a seated position and to utilize the do it yourself adjustable knee protector positions. Jul 6, 2012

Warren65: I wear 34x30 jeans, I am not going to bother hemming the pants as they are perfect length when seated on my DRZ400. As for walking, the Velcro adjustment allows snugging the cuff to your boot so the excess length is not an issue. You most likely wont need to have them hemmed anyway as I don't think I would want to take off any more that an inch or they would be too short when riding. Aug 21, 2012

Mac3051: After owning these pants the EZ Hem is a term meaning that you don't have to modify the zippper or the velcro to hem the pants if they are a little long but you will still need a heavy duty needle! May 28, 2013

A shopper asked: Wondering how these compare to the Tourmaster Venture Air? Which would flow more air? Sep 12, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
AZNoah: The Venture Air will actually vent better that the Olympia, but in this case more is not better. In hot dry Arizona air like you ride in, sweat evaporates the moment it leaves your pores. 100 degree air blowing on you will not cool you down, it will heat you up. Sweat cools you by staying in contact with your skin and slowly evaporating. By wearing a jacket or pant that allows the sweat to build up a little and evaporate slower you will stay cooler, at least while you are moving.

The Olympia is also a much more protective pant but both are better than a pair of jeans. The Venture Air would probably be slightly better in colder weather because of the thermal liner.

Dennis M.: Hi there! Please disregard the first answer I provided you. I was writing a review on Winter gloves at the time and I guess I had that on the brain! :-)

The Air glides will work better in terms of air flow for sure. I have a pair and they are wonderful for hot weather riding. We get days in the 100s and they were great even in that heat. They also look very nice as I have received numerous compliments on them!

maxist: I was comparing this to the Airglide and the Veture Air has more mesh and greater air flow. It offers less abrasion protection. To me I thought the airglide offered a good comprimise between protection and air flow. May 17, 2013

A shopper asked: I noticed that the demo has the rider wearing a belt. Do these pants have an adjustable waist as well as the belt loops? Mar 1, 2013

Mac3051: The pants have two, 2 inch elastic bands, one on each side but they do not have an adjustable waist. They fit me almost exactly like jeans but a little longer. I wear a 34x32 jean and these will go over them but it's tight. May 29, 2013

RevZilla: The Olympia Airglide 3 Pants do not have any adjustments at the waist. The pants only have elastic panels and belt loops to help with waist fitment. Mar 5, 2013

DAVID W: Based on my experience with a 32" waist and buying 32" Airglide pants, I would say yes. I use suspenders with them. I am short, which makes the pants a bit "high-waisted". They must not look too bad since my friends don't make fun of me. Hope that helps. Mar 4, 2015

A shopper asked: How do you care for them? Can I throw them in the wash? Oct 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeff S: Yes you can throw them in the wash. I've washed mine twice so far. Just remove the pads and throw them in the wash. When done just let them air dry, do not put them in the dryer. I have not washed the liner as of yet. Also there are cleaning products on this site to use in the wash and to give back some of the water repelling capabilities back after numerous washings Oct 8, 2014

Sandro R: It fits great, and I love these pants. I use them everytime I ride. Yes, you can washed them but as someone else said, remove all the pads. I did put them in the dryer though, at the softest setting, alone with a we towel. No issues, but only did it once. Nov 16, 2014

A shopper asked: Can you explain the differences between these two pants? What does the Airglide have over the Recon3? Sep 12, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
MichaelInVenice: Recon3 lower legs zip off, turning them into cargo shorts, This means (among other things) that you'll have more seams and more zippers that might fail either in a crash or in general. Airglide include a removable waterproof/windproof liner which will make them more useful in cool and damp weather, whereas Recon is pretty strictly a summer pant. Nov 13, 2012
Reply to MichaelInVenice Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The main difference between the Olympia Airglide 3, and the Recon 3 is that the Recon 3 offers more pockets with a different design, a leg zipper to transform the pants into shorts, and does not have a liner. Otherwise, they offer a similar fabric, construction, and amount of mesh panels. Sep 12, 2012

A shopper asked: Can I buy the liner only? I bought the olympia dakar dual sports, but it doesn't come with waterproof liner ( but jacket yes) would they fit ? otherwise any suggestion for me? I want an under liner not over pants. Nov 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dennis M: I do not believe they do, but they should! The liner on the Air Glide not only makes a good wind/water barrier and good base layer, they make a great destination pant as well. Dec 19, 2014

A shopper asked: hi, i have an olympia ast2 jacket, will this zip into it? I am a 36 x 32 in jeans, with a 38 measurement at belly button. What is best size to order? (I am 6'2" 197 lbs) Thanks. Apr 22, 2014

A shopper asked: Will the Forcefield knee and hip armor fit these pants? May 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)

Jacket Size Guidelines
We suggest you use these size charts as a general guide. Variables in weight distribution and height may alter the appropriate size range indicated. As a general rule Olympia Jackets are designed in America, with an "American" body in mind. As such, you will find that Olympia tend to fit more generously than European brands (such as REV'IT!, Dainese, Alpinestars and Spidi). If you are in between sizes, we recommend to you to err on the smaller side.

Pant Sizing Guidelines
Olympia pants fit true to size. If you intend on using them as over pants, please go one size up.

Inseam Lengths
Olympia pants are cut with generous inseams to accommodate various riding positions. Olympia EZ hem bottoms (can be hemmed up to six inches) and adjustable knee armor help riders achieve a custom fit

Olympia Men's Pants Sizing

Men's Waist Size Inseam(in)
30 32"
32 33"
34 34"
36 35"
38 35"
40 35"
42 35"
44 35"

Olympia pants tend to run true to your jean size. Olympia Pants and 1 Piece Suits do not come in "Short" sizes, however the knee armor is adjustable and the bottoms are made to be easy to hem.
