Saved me in a crash
I have ridden these pants for 20,000 miles. I live in Idaho and do a lot of riding in every kind of weather. I have ridden across the country, done Iron Butt rides, including the Border-to-Border. I've worn these pants A LOT! Here is my review.<br><br>Size:<br>They have a larger American fit. I'm 6' and 250 lbs. They fit me well. The legs can be long but are made to be hemmed. I like the pant legs long to cover my boots better in the rain. They are easy to put on and take off, especially with the large leg zippers.<br><br>Comfort:<br>I like these pants. They feel comfortable and I can easily ride in them all day for many days in a row. They are light with out the liner and provide good air flow. The airflow also depends upon your fairing and bike's dimensions. I road a Kawasaki ZX-14 for most of my miles; now I ride a Suzuki Vstrom DL1000. In the summer I ride them with shorts. In the winter with long underwear. With the liner in they are a little more bulky, but that is normal.<br><br>Style:<br>These are not dress pants. I can walk around in them all day but there are obviously riding pants. Not ugly though. They don't have bulky pockets and buckles and are fairly streamlined.<br><br>Weather:<br>They are cool and comfortable in the summer with the liner out. With the liner in, they are fairly waterproof and warm. I have never been too cold in them (I am fairly warm blooded). In an all day rain nothing stays very dry on a sport bike unless you are in a dry suit.<br><br>Durability:<br>These pants have worn very well. The zippers work well and the velcro holds.<br><br>In a Crash:<br>I laid down my sport bike on the highway at approx 50 mph. I slide on my left side for around 50 meters. The pants held up remarkably well. There was a tear at my left pocket about the size of an iPhone and the knee area was roughed up a little not torn. The ripstop worked great. I had a little bruise on my hip and was sore for about a day. That was it.<br><br>Recommendations:<br>Create a way to open up the lower leg for maximum airflow in the heat.<br><br>That's it. I like these pants and I'm sticking with them.

Best Over Pants yet.
My riding partner is on his 2cd pair,- crotch zipper failed after 3 yrs.- i've finally tried them and love them. I don't use the liners but might try them someday. When it rains I wouldn't pull them off to put the liner in -I just pull R.Suit on over. At 6' 3" I had to move the knee pads down but am glad I could ! Light weight and great fit..can't ask for much more...when it's hot there's no other way to go.

Not waterproof
These pants are a nice mesh pant for dry summer riding with liner out. Rode to work in the rain the other day have a thirty mile commute and by the time I got to work I was absolutely soaked the waterproof lining isn’t so waterproof the water came in through the front zipper so I had to walk around for a couple of hours looking like I wet my pants. The water also came in the side leg zippers. If you’re looking for an actual 3 season riding pant to ride in any weather I would spend a little more money and get something that’s waterproof. If you’re a fair weather rider this pant does flow a good amount of air and is comfortable for long distance rides.

Good looking warm weather pant that WORKS!
One of the things I can't stand is black motorcycle gear. For one, it is too hot in the summer sun, and for another, it just does not look right to me. So I purchased these in Silver and it fit the bill.<br><br>Negative - lets get this out of the way. The wind/water layer goes inside the pant. Why nobody can seem to make a pant that allows the barrier layer to be worn OUTSIDE is beyond me. As a result, I have put the lining away and pack along an oversize uninsulated ski shell pant. Not only is it waterproof and windproof, the only thing I need to remove are my boots to get it on. With an inside barrier, not only does the rain get into the mesh and make drying longer, all the road junk that gets kicked up also gets embedded in the mesh. I've never been successful getting that junk out in the wash entirely. With an external rain shell I keep the mesh clean.<br><br>Lets face it, I don't usually ride when heavy rain is forecast. But I always ride if it is just a chance of showers or some other low probability. Keeping a light rain shell on the bike that I can quickly pull on if the sky looks threatening or when it is raining as I head home is far easier than putting a liner in. Also, if the day got too long and it is getting cold, again it is easier to just pull on an over layer to add some wind protection. Why manufacturers can't seem to get any of this is beyond me. Yea, it isn't as stylish, but it is far more functional. And lets face it, when the weather sucks, the last thing you care about is how you look. I give up fashion for function every time.<br><br>Style wise, the manufacturer blends the mesh and textile pieces well, From a distance they don't scream "weird clothes", so you can actually walk around a bit and not have everyone looking at you strange. (although the neon green jacket and the bright helmet might get noticed anyway.) Still, these pants really look great. There is a thin line of reflective piping down the legs just forward of the side zippers. You really can't see it well unless it reflects back to you, but they are bright when they do.<br><br>The construction is fantastic. I had to hem about 3" off mine and the local dry cleaning shop did a fantastic job and said the design made the alteration simple. Be sure you don't hem them where you normally wear your pants, but a bit longer to cover your boot when seated. In my case, I'm normally a 29-30" inseam and found the 32" length to be ideal. They are a bit long when standing in my socks, but once in my boots, they do not touch the floor. When in a riding position, they cover my ankles. Nothing to snag and adds that little bit of extra overlap. My boots are waterproof, but the more I can keep water away from the top, the better. Having the cuff of these pants reach so low helps to hold my ski pant lower too. (ski pant has an elastic cuff that grabs the bottom cuff of the Olympia pant and holds it in place.)<br><br>I normally wear a 38x30 jean and ordered the 38" pant. I think it fits just fine. The waist on these rides higher than most denim jeans and if you have a belly, you might want to go larger. I find the added height works well to both stay under my jacket in the back when seated, and provide the protection all the way over my hips. In some pants I'd be sliding on my belt, not the pant if I was on my side.<br><br>The hip armor is nothing to write home about - just a thin pad in a dedicated pocket, but they are hardly noticeable and there does seem to be room to put something more substantial in there if desired. I figure it's more than just the fabric and frankly the pants are just as comfortable as pants I've owned without any hip protection at all. The knee armor is CE rated and is a good piece. I had to fiddle with the pocket velcro adjusters to get it to sit right on my knees, but was able to work out the design and now the pads stay in place nicely although I would have preferred them shifted a bit more to the outside. Still, I like the fact that they don't move much at all. Should stay in place in a slide.<br><br>Areas where you expect to slide are well covered. The sides, knees, and butt are solid textile. While the butt does not feel as thick as the other areas, it isn't as thin as some textile pants I've seen. Elsewhere is a fine weave mesh that blocks the sun from burning your skin, but allows a fairly good airflow. A large panel on the top of the thigh, the middle of your shin, and down the lower half of the leg provide an amazing amount of venting area. The mesh is also a lot more pliable than the solid textile which gives the pants a much better flexibility in those areas. I think this allowed the manufacturer to keep the fabric thick and stiff where it needed to be and still fit nicely.<br><br>There is a lining that keeps your skin off the more rugged outer fabric so you can wear as little as you need under these. Many times I've had just boxers on. I've also tried them on a 30 degree morning with the full wind/rain lining and a pair of light thermal underwear and was actually toasty warm. While I would not expect a summer pant to work so well in cold weather, it is nice to see that it does.<br><br>Zippers are good quality. The snaps that hold the waist closed could be stronger as I had them pop loose now and then when bending without a belt. However I always add a heavy leather belt and once in place it isn't an issue. The belt loops are a bit wide spaced on the side, but seem to work. No issue with them, but it is an unusual arrangement. I do like the stretch panels on the sides. Allows adding some light clothing underneath. I can wear a light pair of shorts and use the pants as overpants. They get very bulky over a denim short and I'd not want to wear them over jeans. I can wear thermal underwear under the factory liner, so there is a little bit of room for some clothing. Perhaps a suit or dress pant would work if it is thin enough material.<br><br>The pants are stiff, especially the fabric down the sides where the zipper is. Would not want to wear them for a long time walking around as it does not bend and flex cleanly - not uncomfortable, but the stiff fabric moving is noticeable. This might break in over time, but not a big deal for me. For anyone that would need to park their bike and walk a few blocks or take the train to an office might want to try them around the house before making modifications to see if they are too stiff for their intended use. Since I've really only worn them riding and change soon off the bike, I've not given them much motion to soften up and they really have not. I've only laundered them a few times and that has not made any difference in the fabric.<br><br>While riding, I have no issues with the construction. There are no seams that cause discomfort or anything that binds or pinches. I get no 'ride up' from shorts under the pants, and shirts do tend to stay tucked in.<br><br>The mesh does not release all the little debris that it can capture. Tiny evergreen needles seem to love to bury themselves in the weave. A little bit of going over with a pair of tweezers before hanging to dry gets the pieces out. I can imagine what these might look like after several weeks on the road. But every mesh item of clothing I've owned seems to have some kind of affinity to collecting something.<br><br>Before I describe the airflow, I want to let you know the perspective I am coming from. I live in New England and will usually not bother with a jacket down to 0 degrees F if I'm getting in the car (I will pack a jacket, I just don't wear it) When it gets over 80 degrees I am uncomfortable doing much of anything. I simply don't do well in the heat. I'm the guy who visits Florida and walks around in shorts in the winter comfortably wondering why the pool is closed. The following are my perceptions of these pants with that in mind.<br><br>The venting is fantastic. I have a fully faired bike, so I get less airflow than most and I would be very uncomfortable in these riding around town without the liner if the temps were much below the mid-50's. The few times I've ridden below 60 degrees in just the pants, the cooling air was very noticeable to the point of being cold. Where I've worn the BMW Summer Pants (non-mesh, but fairly thin fabric) down to freezing without any issues, these flow enough air that you will feel the cold. I'd say anything more than about 5-10 degrees lower than you'd be comfy in shorts is about the limit. There really is that much air flow. Add the liner and you can go much lower.<br><br>When the heat is on, they shine. Days above 90 are not too common here in New England, so I don't really need to worry about extreme heat as much as some areas of the country, but I have had a chance to ride in the high 80's and was very comfortable. Between the light color and the air flow my lower body was kept from sweating and that really was the goal. Having had several pairs of armored pants in the past of various types, this was a first. Usually the mesh is dark and absorbs heat, or it won't flow enough air and gets too warm. In any case, these just work great.<br><br>My daily summer commute is usually in the upper 50's or low 60's in the morning and then in the upper 70's or low 80's going home. These pants are comfy for these temps for me. On cooler days, I wear a solid textile pant. But these pants have been that missing element when the days are really warm. I have pushed them into cooler weather as I noted above, and with a good wind barrier and an added thermal layer, they certainly can do the job.<br><br>The only reason I don't give these 5 stars are due to the liner. If they made a wind/rain layer that fit over the pants rather than under, you'd see 5 stars. I feel I paid for a really good wind/rain layer that I can't use and had to go buy another.<br><br>Will absolutely buy again.

Wonderful pants, but sizing is a bit off ...
These are great pants, easy to put on since the sides zip almost all the way to the belt line. There are plenty of adjustments for the knee pads and. The external pockets are exactly where they need to be, so I'm not fumbling for the zipper. I'm not eager to test the protective capabilities, but they are certainly robust, made out of the heaviest Cordura that I've ever seen and adequate knee armor (the hip pads are a bit on the soft side, however). I wanted an up-sized version to wear over lightweight slacks, but the 36" version I got was a bit tight even when worn alone, and I normally wear 35" Levi's, so I had to exchange them for 38" (thanks, RevZilla) which are a bit too baggy. The extra length, however, is perfect since I like to have them cover the full height of my boots even while bent over in riding position.

Adequate, could be better
I've been wearing these pants for about a week to commute to and from work. I needed something that provided decent venting, armor, and could be used as an overpant.<br><br>First, the good. They do vent, they do have armor. The full zip sides make them a breeze to get on and off. The pant legs are long when you stand, but fit right when you sit. The waist also comes up high to provide a nice overlap to your jacket. At the bottoms they have velcro strips around six inches in length to hold the pant around your boots, and it works well. The liner is easy to install and remove.<br><br>Now, what could be better. My biggest gripe is probably the velcro. While it is grippy, it's grippy on everything including the inside of the pant. Yesterday I pulled the velcro off the inside of the pant and it had also caught on one of the tabs used to hold the liner in place and ripped it clean out. After looking closer, it appears that just two stitches were all that held the tab in place. It seems that the velcro will shred the inside of the pant rather quickly - perhaps a micro velcro would have been a better design choice here.<br><br>The knee armor moves all around and doesn't stay in place. A compartment with several velcro dividers is used to position the armor but it's not very effective. Maybe I'll sew the armor in place when I address the torn out tab.<br><br>With or without the liner there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of difference to airflow. If it's raining you'll definitely want the liner, but unless it's really cold or really hot you probably won't notice much.<br><br>It would also be great if the front pockets had a passthrough to get to whatever you were wearing underneath when used as an overpant.<br><br>Not sure I would buy these again, seems they could be better for the price point. The protection is there but it seems like a lot of easily remedied little things were overlooked.

Good summer pants
Fit is true to size but for an overpant that might not be good. I haven't gotten to wear them very much because it is still warm one day chilly the next here. They seem well constructed and they do flow lots of air. I think they will be great summer pants.

Cool and comfortable.
I really like these pants. I am an older guy and I'm all about comfort. I'm also kind of on the cheap side and it about killed me to spend this much on a pair of pants. They are worth it though, and I would buy them again. Riding is so much more enjoyable when you are cool, comfortable and protected.<br><br>Fit.<br>I like that they are sized like your jeans. No looking on some size chart and trying to figure out if your a medium, X-large or 2XL, whatever. Just order what you normally wear. If you are a guy with a beer belly that laps over your belt some, no worries. They fit even though the rise is higher than on your jeans. I ordered my jean size 36 inch. I have a short inseam at about 30 inches. I could hem these up a three inches and they would still be plenty long. I don't know if I'll get around to it though. They work fine with my boots as is. I appreciate the adjustable knee armor. I had to return a different brand pants that the fixed armor was more of a shin guard than knee guard on my stubby legs.<br><br>Quality.<br>These pants feature top notch name brand materials and seem to be well made. They should wear very well and last a long time. They have a lot of well thought out features too. Full length side zippers, belt loops, rivet reinforcements, side stretch panels, zipper pulls on the front pockets, etc. The pockets are sized and placed correctly. Don't you hate pockets that are just wrong? I like that the rear pockets have an easy to use snap instead of Velcro.<br><br>Comfort.<br>Normally by the time I get all suited up I am sweating like a pig. Not so much with these. These pants are about as cool as one could hope for. You can feel the air flow through them while walking around in the house. I am very well protected from wind on my bike due to the fairings. Even so, I am much cooler in these pants on hot days than I would be in jeans. If you ride a more naked bike you are going to get some major air flowing.<br><br>The crotch is roomy and non-binding. I like that I can access my uh... unit, with just a normal zipper. No extra flaps or strips of industrial strength Velcro to fight past while you're dancing up and down in front of the urinal. The older I get the more urgent easy and fast access becomes. Enjoy that 128 ounce bladder while you can kids!<br><br>I have not had the chance to try out the liner yet but it is nice knowing I have them stowed on my bike should the need arise.<br><br>I really can't think of too much bad to say about these other than having a short inseam option would be nice.

High Quality, Well Ventilated
This is a great pair of pants. They run pretty much true to size and fit well. I ordered the same size I wear in jeans and can wear these either over jeans or as a stand alone garment. They fit well either way without looking like you're wearing a diaper underneath.<br><br>These pants flow a lot of air. Worn alone without the liner they start to get a little cold for me at about 75 degrees at highway speed. They work great in hot weather, and I suspect worn over pants and a good base layer would be a suitable three season pant.<br><br>My inseam is 32" and the unhemmed length is a little long when standing, but fit perfectly when seated on my bike. The quality of the material, zippers, and workmanship are top notch.<br><br>While these pants are pricier than some others, I don't regret spending the extra money on what is truly a quality product.

I love my Olympia all-season gear...it has lots of vents. However, when riding in 90+ temps, it would be nice to not break out into a sweat once my bike stops moving...so, Let's try out the summer gear. Now, several rides into using the summer gear...it is exactly what I had hoped it would be.

I was looking for some armored pants that wasn't extremely expensive and would work in rain, cold and hot weather.

Have Olympia jacket and like the way it fits. I hope the pants also fit with Olympia quality.

Protective safety qualities and they matched my jacket. Also, adjusts to weather by removing the lining.

I have two Olympla coats and I like the product.

I have the Airglide 4 jacket and I've been very happy with it (bummed that I paid full price and now it's on sale for 40% off!!!). The reviews of these pants are along the same lines as the jacket and on my last trip I was wishing I had a pair of riding pants. 40% off sealed the deal for me.

One of my riding friends had good things to say about the pants, and especially liked the ability to put the rain liner over the pants as well as under.

Will the Forcefield knee and hip armor fit these pants?
A shopper on May 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Forcefield knee will fit and you still have a couple of inches of vertical adjustment. They slide around much less - definitely recommended. Can't help ya on the hip armor.
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.
A shopper on May 26, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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).
I'm 6' tall, 165lbs, actual waist and inseam measurements are 34 / 33 respectively
The size 34 Airglide pants have a 34 inseam according to the size chart.
Just wondering if they will cover the ankles of a short motorcycle boot when in the riding position ?
The short motorcycle boot is the Alpinestar CR4 XCR
A shopper on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5-9 and 175 with a 31 - 32 inch inseam and I went with the 34 inch waist in part because of the leg length. My first ride was down the WA and OR coast in rain and 45 degrees. My pants were perfect but my buddy with just over the ankle high boots and the 32 inch inseam and regular socks had two to three inches of bare lower leg while we rode. They are considered over pants and I made sure mine were big enough to wear insulation under them which also gave me the length. So I was glad I bought mine about two inches longer than my inseam. The pant also has a belt loop which I use. I don't care if they bunch up a little at the boot when I'm walking around. I only care that they are fully functional when I ride. You can always just sit on the bike and send them back clean if they don't work.
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?

Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 25, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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 ...
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?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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
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?
Kendall S on Nov 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
How can you hem these if there is velcro on the bottom?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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!!
Wondering how these compare to the Tourmaster Venture Air? Which would flow more air?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I wear 36" jeans...should I get the 36" in these?
Thank you.
Achim H on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I noticed that the demo has the rider wearing a belt. Do these pants have an adjustable waist as well as the belt loops?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
