Olympia Ranger 3 Over Pants
Bought for the protection they offer.
These are my first pair of over pants.I bought these foul weather over pants because of the protection that they offer. I have rode 5,000+ miles in them this summer. At 80 degrees they are fine if you are moving. I have wore them from 55 degrees to 95.I knew that there would not be much air-flow, but I wanted the protection.I am 6' 205 pounds and my jeans are 35x34 . I didn't plan to wear jeans under them, and ordered size 36. They fit me great in the waist and length is fine with tall riding boots. I have not used the liner in them. I have only rode in light rain, and kept dry.

Fits great kind of but works well
After agonizing for months on which britches to buy I went with these. I ride a r1200 gsa liquid cooled. I have an older Olympia jacket and love it and never had the pants. I purchased these as over pants with durability and weather proofing in mind. The first day I went to ride with them was 90 + degrees. There isn't much airflow but I have pants for that. these were for protection and they do that for sure. I took a few scrapes and actually dumped my bike. The pants held up and look great. Now I ended up wearing them just with my undershorts as with the liner they are too bulky and it was hard to close the waist. It fit well like a pair of jeans without. I'm 6'4" with a 32 waist and 34 inseam. I ordered 32 and they were again perfect with no liner and just about long enough with my SIDI boots. Although they were tight around the cuff. So I would say for my 180lb frame 34 would have been better with lining and length although I might've needed braces for the waist. I drove through mud dust rocks and some streams they held up great. Worth the price.

Well protected when riding with these Ranger 3 Overpants!
This is my first order with Revzilla and the product information with the video, online order system, prompt and correct filling of my order, and the package product was excellent! The product is extremely rugged, will last a long time, has excellent wind protection from the cool Michigan morning commutes on my '69 R60/2 BMW. The only challenge is the length when sitting on the bike as the 35" inseam isn't long enough to cover the back of my short riding boots. I wear a 36x34 jean and the size is also tight with the liner, however, the liner zipped in make these an extreme cold riding pant which I may never test out on the old bike. Great product and recommend them if you want a heavy and warm pant even with the liner out. I will be ordering tall riding boots from Revzilla soon and that should take care of the back of the leg coverage.

Overall a value
These are made from some heavy duty material that should protect well in a crash/slide scenario. Knee pad position is adjustable, Olympia seems to have solved the issue of the knee pad being too far inside when in the riding position. Heavy duty zippers along with hook and loop closures along the legs make it easy to get in and out even with your boots on (I wear Sidi Armada boots size 13).
I have reached the conclusion that nothing will keep you dry in a prolonged heavy rain while riding a motorcycle. These pants are fine in light to medium rain for 2+ hours rides. I have ridden with them in a prolonged heavy rain, including riding through water running over the road. Eventually my jeans got wet where the zippers/hook and loop seams down along the legs were. Keep in mind it was a prolonged heavy rain, which most people would likely stop at a coffee shop and wait out. The only reason I rode in it was to thoroughly test these pants.
I did not like the belt that came with the pants, so I contacted Olympia, they sent me a another identical belt in exchange for me returning the original. No joy, but I can't fault Olympia customer service, they tried. I found another belt that works much better.
These pants function well for what they are intended to do, which is keep you dry in any reasonable rain, keep you warm in the cold, and while not crash tested, the 2000D Cordura does inspire some confidence.
Overall, a great value.

Good value, good fit.
After an exaustive search, I finally found these pants. I already own the Olympia jacket, and love it. I don't know why I did'nt just go with the same brand. The fit is just about perfect for adventure riding. lots of room in the legs, and crotch. The themal liner eats up most of the extra room. Without the liner, they have ample room for street pants. Quality of construction is very good, price is reasonable, based on the competition. I would recommend these pants to other riders. Size is accurate, and they have ample length for taller riders. Definetly a good over boot fit.

Adjustablitiy of legs is a myth
These pants run small with legs which run long so if you are tall and skinny they probably will fit. The adjustability of leg length by a tailor is possible because the side zipper doesn't go all the way to the bottom, however the complexity of the garment at the bottom of the leg will make this an expensive proposition if done professionally and daunting if you do it yourself unless you are a highly skilled tailor. Remember with the liner you have 4 legs to alter. I feel this adjustability is a ruse which saves the company money by offering fewer leg length options to the buyer. Better to spend the extra $50 to 75 you would give to a tailor and move up to a product which has better selection in terms of fit.

I bought these to go with my AST jacket and i'm sure glad I did. Great protection and good comfort while riding. I bought size 32 and I typically wear a 30-31 and they fit dead on. Now this is without the liner. If you are wanting to wear the liner then you must wear shorts. I tried the 34's but they was too bulky and I couldn't keep them up around my waist. Great purchase though!!

Perfect for my needs
With a 40" inseam and a 34" waist it is always difficult for me to find clothes that actually fit me - but these do (or at least well enough to work well with riding boots). I just got them in December (3 months ago) so I haven't worn them during the summer, but they've kept me warm and dry through snow, rain, and 25°F temps before the 80mph wind-chill. I gave a top rating for Air Flow because I've noticed no air flow that would chill my knees - we'll see what happens when the weather warms up. The pockets do an excellent job of keeping my wallet and phone dry, too. I would heartily recommend these Ranger 3 pants to anyone. Kudos to Ryan for helping me figure out sizing over email.
