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"

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.

Olympia Airglide 3 Pants 4.5 5 146 146
So far so good for these pants! I purchase a pair of Airglide 3 pants for myself and my wife, and we both like them, although I've had more experience with them and been wearing them on every ride since receiving them. Most of the riding was hot sticky weather in Florida, and the Airglides were a Godsend, allowing me to wear shorts under the 'Glides and stay cool AND protected. I took the MSF Experienced Rider Course (all slow speed maneuvers) on a 90 degree high humidity day and soaked all of my gear with sweat (sorry for the visual!). But on arrival home I washed the Airglides (and my Airglide jacket) and my helmet lining on a gentle cycle with a bit of detergent (no bleach), let everything air dry, and everything was fresh as a daisy and good as new. Minor gripes: I chose to wear the Airglides as a cover-up, mainly for warm weather riding with shorts. With jeans, there's a bit of bulk, and it's a bit of a chore to assume and maintain the riding position on my Fireblade-no such problem on the Harleys! Another gripe is the pathetic foam inserts that are supposed to be hip armor. This foam inserts (only included with the Men's Airglides, and for some reason not with the women's) are trash. I tossed them and replaced them with SAS-TEC hip armor, and hopefully will never have to test any of the protective features of ANY of my gear. And, Oh, yes, despite the apparent good quality, the Airglide products are made in China. I'd be happy to spend a few more $$ and give an American a job. What a Brave New World we live in! Ride safe! November 10, 2015
Great pants with excellent features. Just finished a six day ride through low to high temperatures and heavy rain to drizzle. Love the pants other than their long for my waist and not easily hemmed without professional skills. Zippered legs are a great touch as they're easily taken on and off with boots on. Would definitely buy again. September 9, 2015
Good protection! Comfortable and great water and wind protection , For colder weather recommend one size bigger , little short fit. September 7, 2015
Cooler when toasty out. Overall I like these pants. Decent airflow but based on reviews I thought it would be better. The armor is CE rated and stays where it is suppose to. The zip to jacket feature is there and they included both sides, so you can add it to another jacket. The length choice is pretty limited, they are just right when I am on the bike with bent legs but a little long when standing. I usually ride with a pair of Diamond Gusset jeans, so from a protection standpoint these are better, and a lot cooler as well. September 7, 2015
Nice fit, very comfortable. These pants fit me better than any I've had. I am a 31 waist and 32 inseam. I ordered size 32 and they fit great with enough room for a pair of sweat pants underneath in cold weather. The length is just right too, wouldn't want them any shorter. I really like the full length zipper making them east to get on and off with your boots on. August 31, 2015
Good features, but a little warm Got these to fit an Older Olympia Jacket. Have only worn them on one ride, but they seem sturdy and the leg side zippers work well to get in and out of the pants. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 260 lbs with 30" inseam and I got size 44. I normally prefer 'khaki' style pants with more space in the seat and thighs and these ones are comfortable, even over a pair of regular shorts. On an 86 deg. sunny day I felt they were a fairly warm when going on gravel or in city traffic at 25 - 35 mph, and OK when going ~55 mph on asphalt - I was still sweating a bit. A few more areas of air flow mesh would be welcome - e.g. closer to the knee and on the inside of the thighs. Compared to a pair of Riggs Workwear pants that I used to ride in in this kind of heat, these aren't nearly as cool, but likely protect a lot better, of course. The knee armor adjusted easily and sits in the right place for me, when adjusted to the top setting. The hip protectors are just thin, soft foam - so thin, in fact, that I first thought they were missing completely and had to go looking for them. The length worked for me - they have the perfect length when seated on the bike, but obviously bunch up a bit when standing. The belt loops are surprisingly small - I could fit a 1" dress belt through, but probably would have trouble with a 1.5" work belt. July 27, 2015
Fits much different than other pants on the market My previous summer pants were REV'IT Airwave wants. I went looking for a replacement because of the 'European' style fit of the Airwaves - I felt like the Airwave pants didn't leave enough room in the upper thigh and groin area when on the bike. After doing a bunch of research, I landed on these Airglide 3 pants as a replacement. They did solve my problem - they fit looser and are much more comfortable to wear. I don't wear them as over pants - with just shorts on underneath the Airglide 3 is a MUCH looser riding pant than the Airwave pants, or my Dainese Tomsk sprint/fall pants. Good for comfort, and the airflow is good, but other parts of the pants aren't as great. The looseness makes the knee armor move around. It's not really a knee 'cup' either - just some floppy flexible armor, and it tends to work its way to the inside of my knee when riding, which is about the lease useful place for it to be. Hip padding on these pants is very light - I don't think it's going to do much in a crash. The leg bottoms with the velcro as a goofy as others have said - it works, but it's an odd design... Overall, I would say these pants are a decent option if you really are looking for a looser 'American' style pant, or for an over pant. However if you are ok with a bit tighter fitting pant look at some of the other options on the market - you can probably do better. July 27, 2015
Awesome for the commuter These pants make riding a motorcycle to work/school enjoyable again. They're very easy to take on and off, and allow you to wear whatever you'd like underneath without compromising safety. They breathe very well from the knees down, and remain relatively comfortable even on the hottest of days. I have confidence that if I take a spill, I'll be better off than if I were just wearing kevlar jeans and knee pads. Two drawbacks that I've noticed in the couple of months that I've had them are that the leg zippers get snagged on the last inch or so every time I zip them on, and the material on the inside of the leg melts extremely quickly (it doesn't seem like that area is made with 500 wt cordura). The pants are baggier than what I'm used to, so just be mindful to keep your legs well away from your exhaust. July 24, 2015

Joan L: They state this is for hot weather. Tried these on, and took a ride around the property on a 4 wheeler to see if the air came through, and was wonderfully surprised at HOW MUCH ventilation you get, and still get protection. Ready to go on a 5 week cross country trip now, once he gets the next size larger. The pants fit great, except in the waist-----if you are a 36, go for the 36!!! There is no cinching these up with a belt----very little give in the circumference of the waist. Jul 4, 2015
Ryan H: I was looking for pair of mesh riding pants that I can use on a trip through central California during summertime. These pants have good reviews and were recommended by my local motorcycle shop. It was easy for me to choose this pair because of the thorough video reviews of this product on the website. Jun 29, 2015
DEAN C: Olympia has held up well for me in the past. I used these pants in Death Valley. We did 300 miles in the heat and dust and The Airglide 3 pants worked out great. I wear 36 jeans so I ordered size 36. They fit but I returned them for 38s so I could use them as an over pant for comuting. These are my go to paints. Easy on and off. Large pockets too. I appreciate good equipment. I would buy them again. Bought my son a pair a couple of months later. Jun 27, 2015
Michael A: Have another pair, really like them in hot weather. Have light grey color - color is nice in hot weather but really start to look pretty grungy after a couple of years. Black wont show dirt.

They fit well. Usually I have jeans on underneath. In really hot weather I wear fox motocross padded shorts and light cotton pants. I could not have survived north Florida without them.

I added better knee and hip armor.

Jane M: Recommended by someone who has them! Good for New Mexico riding. Dec 13, 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

They are comfy and do the job well.
Nov 29, 2014
Robert K: Value, features, reputation. Nov 28, 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

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

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
michael w: Needed something for the hotter weather and I have the Airglide jacket and really like it. Jun 3, 2014
James G: needed mesh pants with rain protection Jun 2, 2014
James B: Friend recommendation May 24, 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
Dmitry K: one of your guys over the phone suggested it Mar 22, 2014
H U: beats riding in jeans for protection and I didn't want something heavy. Mar 19, 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
gary w: flexibility for different weather conditions and matches airglide 4 jacket Dec 15, 2013
Lars N: The Airglide 4 jacket is well made, It stands to reason the pants would be as well. Dec 10, 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

Pvan: Yes, they have a full length zipper. I keep the rain liner in my backpack if the weather is looking iffy. Takes less than a minute to get the pants off, liner and pants back on. Feb 10, 2013

A shopper asked: 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

Gary H: 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. May 27, 2015

JOSHUA K: I'm 5'7", and wear a 32/33 with an inseam of 30. The 34 size olympias fit me over jeans, with not too much overage in the length when in the riding position. I would go 1 size bigger if i were you. These naturally ride high at the waist,, not like jeans. May 26, 2015

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?

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 ...

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.

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

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

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...

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.

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

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.

David B: The knee armor fits in an inner pocket that has three velcro adjustable positions. The velcro closures hold the armor in position by closing the pocket at the three positions so that the armor cannot fall any lower than the desired position. The difference between the lowest position and the highest is 4 inches. I have a size 34 and keep the knee pads in the lowest position. They are positioned correctly when I am sitting on the bike.

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

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.
