Olympia Airglide 3 Pants (Size 40 Only)
These pants seem well made, but the liner makes them a little snug. I mostly use them to cover nicer work pants for my rides to work.

Really like these!
I wear 36 waist jeans and ordered size 36. Fit great over my jeans. I have worn them for commutes to work. In June, we did a 4 day trip in NC, VA, and WVA. I wore them every day with no issues. One day was rainy so these were under my rain suit. I did not try the waterproof liner that comes with the pants.
True to size fit. Length was good too. I did not trim them.
Easy of getting in and out of the pants. I REALLY like this feature.
Good air flow.

Comfortable with plenty of air flow
I picked these up to wearing over a pair of shorts on really hot days, or for wearing over khakis when commuting to the office.
I wear a size 34 pants so I went with a pair of 36 in these so I could comfortably wear the over pants, and the fit is spot on. A little long when off the bike but perfect when riding (I have a 32" inseam)
They're comfortable, the knee protection doesn't flop around like they sometimes do in other pants and they look okay as well. The rain liner, which I removed, is an added bonus. I removed it because it doesn't promote much air flow but it's great to have if I HAVE to ride in the rain.
The pants come on and off really quickly and fit well in a small backpack when not being worn. Very happy with these.

perfect in every way
Size was true to my pants size but just enough bigger to let me wear shorts or pants underneath as needed. they are long for me standing, but actually on the bike with legs bent , the length is just right. I have used in temperatures from 55 F to 95 F. I use the liner at the colder temps and just shorts under them at the higher temperatures - and they provide good ventilation even in the high temps. The full length side zippers make them super easy to put on over my boots. Construction and material quality is good. Very happy with the choice, and they work well with my Olympia air glide 3 jacket. Bang for buck for me was really good because I got on closeout.

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.
