Olympia Airglide 3 Pants
Great functional pants for the price
I was looking for pants to go with my olympia nomad jacket for a 3000 mile trips i was taking. These pants were a great choice for me. They performed fantastic in all weather. The pants are easy to work with for getting on and off and the liner is easy enough to take in and out. We rode in temperatures between 45-85 degrees. I did not have any issues with getting cold with the liner in and they flowed well enough to handle the warmer weather while remaining protected. These are a great pant for all around riding and I'm very happy with my purchase

Airglide 3 great for 3+ seasons
I was looking for a light colored mesh pant with protection for spring/summer/fall riding. The Olympia 3 fit the bill perfectly. Great bang for the buck (especially with the sale price) because they come with a waterproof liner. In cooler weather I wear a heavy pair of long underwear and felt comfortable down to 32dF. The fit was near perfect. I got the size 34 and it was spot on. I'm a fairly fit 6'2" 185 lbs with a 34 waist and 34 inseam. They are very comfortable while riding with no binding or tightness. With the liners out, the airflow is adequate to keep you cool while in motion. I've used them up to 85dF and have not had any problems with excessive heat buildup. I haven't and hopefully will not have to test the protection of this product but it does come with removable knee and hip armor and has very sturdy construction. So far there are no durability or wear issues after about 2200 miles on them.

Purchased for my wife to go with her Olympia jacket
My wife tried several jackets and pants on at a few motorcycle dealerships and found the Olympia Airglide jacket and pants to be the best option. The dealership didn't have the right size pants, so we purchased them from RZ. The pants were initially a little uncomfortable for her, until she took out the hip pads. Now my wife really likes them. The zippers on the sides of the pants make it easy to pull the pants on, or take them off, with boots on. Air flow seems good, but we haven't really taken them out on a hot day yet. They seem to be pretty versatile, in terms of weather, but I would say they are a 3-season pant, as she had them on (with the liners in) when we rode from the DFW area, up to Oklahoma City, back in early March. It ended up being a particularly cold weekend, and even with the liners, thermals and some other layer, she was very cold. We weren't really concerned about that, since we don't plan to do much cold weather riding, and if we do, we will invest in some heated gear for my wife (I already use a heated jacket).
The button on one of the back pockets came off when opening the pocket, but hopefully that is not indicative of the overall quality (doesn't seem to be). The pants have a nice weight to them, protection looks good, and they are pretty nice looking.

Great overpant, nothing fancy
I have 1 riding session in on these, great amount of length (I'm 6'3", 220lbs, ordered the 38" waist). I ordered 1 size up to use as an overpant. Zips/fasteners and materials seem high quality. Knee armor is okay, wish there was takeup around the leg to get a slightly tighter fit. Up/down adjustment is fine (velcro). Also, no waist adjustment but does has some stretch paneling. Overall good fit, style is basic but not overly baggy. Would like some accent white to breakup the black, a la Alpinstars/AGV Sport etc.
Note: I took out the liner and plan to use only on rare occasions. I would probably just wear jeans, maybe a thin thermal for cooler weather than fuss with it. It does seem high quality and has pockets

I finally bought a dedicated pair of pants to wear when I ride. These pants seem to fit the bill for multi-seasonal use. I appreciate they have a zip-out liner, several pockets and armor. The knee armor is easily adjustable, and the hip armor (while thin) appears to be decent as well. Absolutely worth the price and would recommend.

Great fit, comfortable to ride in.
Had to exchange the original purchase because it was too small (got a 36, exchanged for a 38). The look is ok, better than some skiing pants, but not ugly at all. Pretty breathable. Easy to take out the liner and put it back in. Rode 100 miles in them already when it was 75 outside without the liner and I wasn't sweating at all.

Good fit, great price.
Pants fit good, look good too. With the stretch fabric in beltline, these pants easily fit over jeans too. Provides adequate air flow on the highway but gets a little warm if you're stuck in traffic. Pockets can't hold much without bulging out but that's not a drawback in my opinion. Hopefully I'll never have to provide a review on how welll the protection works. Myself, I removed all the pads and just relying on the protection from road rash.

Awesome product and great price!!!
Wanted some overpants for long trips as I'm pretty new to the biking world. Wanted a lot of protection but at a fair price. Saw the great reviews on these and decided to give them a shot.....and I'm glad I did!! These pants are awesome! They are built extremely well and offer a ton of padding in the right places. They're overpants so obviously they're not the most hip looking thing out there......but who cares?? They come off in less than a minute so if I go somewhere I can just stow them on the bike and not have to wear jeans out and can wear shorts. I know a lot of people say to get a size up......but I ignored that and got my waist size which is a 32. With the liner out it fits absolutely fine. I think I would be swimming in the 34's. I really don't see myself wearing the liner so it's not a big deal........I'm a very fair weather rider! If you plan on using the liner then get the next size up. Fantastic product and DO NOT hesitate to buy!! Revzilla was AWESOME to deal with as well!!! The delivery was stupid fast!!! Got them 2 days after ordering!!!!
