Great Summer Over-Pants
Fits well, comfortable over-pants. Air flows really well through pants. I wear 32x34 pants typically and a Medium Tall fit well.<br><br>If you're not too concerned with protection these are amazing. Knee protection is good. There were hip pockets for additional protective pads (not included).<br><br>I took a spill (low-sided at around 40 mph) and the pants did not hold up well (see photo). Knee stitching tore immediately and knee pad came out. Left some road rash on my right knee. Additionally the perforated part frayed a lot.

I rode 800 miles in my Air Waves ... IN ONE DAY!
I am a serious, high mileage, Lives to Ride kinda guy and I'll toss a jacket if I don't like the zipper...it's gotta work or it's back to the seller or in the trash. There are few things that will get me out of my leather other than HEAT. I don't generally like textile suits but the Airwave is an exception.<br><br>It was hot hot hot and I was due to ride a 3000 mile trip with temperatures ranging from 50-100. I purchased the Airwave jacket, pants, and gloves and tried them out in 90 degree weather. I was so impressed I bought my wife the same outfit immediately. She's a fashion babe and loved how the silver and black looked and fit her. We both have very nice Joe Rocket perforated leather outfits but they don't work in severe heat.<br><br>I rode out in 100 degree sun shine wearing a full face helmet and the above ensemble. My underclothing consisted of a T shirt and jockey shorts. It worked, the heat was tolerable. In the past I would have worn jeans and a T with lots of sun screen ... an it is miserable ... not to mention NO protection in a crash. My next day it was 85-95 degrees for 700 miles of interstate riding at 85 miles per hour ... fuel stops only! On the third day I ventured into the mountains as high as 8,000 feet and the temperature varied from 50-90 degrees. All was well! On the return ride I did an 800+ mile ride with at least 200 in the rain... wear upon... I donned my rain suit. The rain suit came in handy when I was in 50-60 degree temperatures, overcast, and for long periods in the mountains ... I used the top only to increase my temperature.<br><br>The air flow is great, the silver and black suit looks sharp, and the armor (although untested) is nice too. I've washed the suit 3 times already and ridden 3000 in it and it looks new. I am 65 years old 5' 11" and 220 pounds of criticism when a product doesn't work or doesn't fit (follow the sizing guide). Get the entire Airwave ensemble if you want to ride smart in the summer. I find it perfect for 70+ degree riding.

Great Fit, Well Made and High Tech!
The Airwave Pants are indeed a high-tech garment, and are a natural match with the Airwave Jacket (as they should be). The pants are very adjustable in the waist and cuff, as well as the internal pockets for placement of the knee and hip armor. They do not come with hip armor, but I just swap the pads from my BMW Jeans.<br><br>Fit: The rise on the Airwaves are cut so that the waistline will be positioned right at the level of one's bellybutton. This should work well with most people's anatomy, but if you are overweight or have a pronounced belly, you might consider ordering a size up, although the built-in belt sliders on the sides of the pants offer considerable range to fit. I am 6'2" and 190lbs and size Large works for me. The pant legs are roomy enough to wear pants underneath if need be, although that kind of defeats the breathability factor. Even though the pants are slightly baggy through the legs, the design of the garment's geometry projects a very athletic-looking fit. I really like the design of the cuffs, as their adjustability will make them work well with most any boot or footwear. Full zippers up the inseam are nice too. The front zipper and waist closures are excellent as well. Don't order these too big, or you will look like a member of the lunar landing team.<br><br>Aesthetics: The Airwave pants are a very technical-looking garment, and are articulated at the knees, for excellent comfort while riding or just walking around. I strongly recommend getting the light-colored, silver variants of both the pants and the jacket, as the black will diminish the various dark-colored accent panels (jacket and pants) on the shoulders, sides, knees etc. which are what make this set look aggressive, tailored, thinning and physical.<br><br>Breathability: I've been riding for a couple weeks in hot, humid weather and when you are moving, the pants (and the jacket) allow a tremendous amount of airflow to the body. If your bike has a fairing, big tank or you are one to grip the tank with your legs, you will find the need to periodically spread your knees out when in the saddle (at speed) to let the air flow to the inner legs. I recall one day, I was riding in the early morning (around 65 degrees, sun blazing), with only a t-shirt and underwear on under the suit, and I was cold! You would really have to wear warm layers underneath to use these pants (outfit) in colder weather. At rest, in a windless, mild environment, the outfit does insulate, so don't expect it to be breezy and cool feeling in that sort of scenario.<br><br>Function: The Airwaves are easy to get on and off, and probably could be removed even when your boots are still on (I haven't tried this yet). The side pockets are great with zipper closures and I have no problem putting keys, money or other items in them. The waist fasteners are excellent and secure. Front zipper is long and easy to access for wizz breaks.<br><br>Negatives: None really, other than the pants will tend to slide down (depending on your anatomy of course), but if you utilize the rear zipper that attaches to the jacket, this is not a problem.<br><br>Great pants - I love them.

Your jeans won't cut it, but these will, if worn on top!
Who wants to dodge traffic with just jeans? Your slimy, soft tentacled friends riding in flip-flops, that's who! I don't know about you, but the last thing I want to feel is the road summarily peeling my flesh from my bones. I hate riding in jeans, which offer minimal protection, but I'm weary of the heavy full leather track suit when it's a sweltering hot summer day; and believe me you, we've got plenty of these in Albuquerque! So when it came to mesh pants, I looked and looked, high and low, and nothing appealed to me. Until these, ZLA stamped Revit mesh pants that are ready for urban (rural too) combat. Nice large pockets, cool white/silver color, I never understand the appeal of black (unless you're one of those wimpy Emo kids) to keep those evil sunrays bouncing off, as well as for for visibility. When I unpacked them and put them on top of my Jeans, they fit perfectly, and boy are they comfortable! Just be honest with what your girth is, I'm a hefty 205 with a 36 waist and 31 length. The quality seems top-notch and I've ripped my fair share of Cycle-Gear knockoffs. Delivery was fast, and I'm looking forward to not cook my fleshy bits in the summer. BTW, do NOT even thing about using these without some kind of clothing underneath, melted nylon on skin is just as unpleasant as road rash. How do I know this? Because I was once a kid with matches and plastic.<br>Keep rolling on that throttle, and no matter what you ride, cheers!

Awesome
Decided on something better and more comfortable than my Kevlar jeans for the summer and after trying on the Rev'it Tornado pants, I settled on these. The Tornados were a more boxier fit but the material felt a lot softer. I also didn't know how I would utilize the waterproof/thermal liner in them. I mean I'm looking for a summer pant, not exactly going to stop when it's raining to put in my thermal liner when it's 82 outside. What's the point of keeping the rain out when you're just going to sweat to death. So, since I already have Frogg Toggs for my rain gear, I decided to save some cash and grab the Airwave instead.<br><br>Strangely enough, I liked the way these fit and looked on me vs the Tornado (which I like the looks of better in the pics and video). I have worn the Airwave pants for just over a week straight and love them. They let a lot of air through in the warmer temps and are quite comfortable on the bike. I'm 5'11" 175 with a 34" waist. Medium pants fit me perfectly in the waist. Length is perfect, a little long while walking around and a little short while on the bike.<br><br>I went with the gray colour mainly as they are meant for the summer heat. About the only negative is how quickly they pick up bug splatters. My other pants I wear the rest of the year are black and they continue to look brand new, so this is clearly a compromise.<br><br>I have worn these with a thin pair of UnderArmour pants underneath on my way to work the one day and at about 16c (61f), these were a little chilly. It really depends on your temp tolerance but anything south of that, I would be cold! In fact my ride was on a Wee and at that temp, anything longer than my 30 min ride would have not been comfortable. This is about the only time I would have loved to have the liner of the Tornados. Of course had I been on my ST1300, I could have gone a little lower in temp and perhaps a little longer than 30min, just more wind protection on that bike, so YMMV depending on your ride!<br><br>With the pants on underneath, the crotch area felt very snug and I don't think I would have ridden more than 30 min. If I had planned on wearing these as an over pant (something they are advertised as), I would have preferred to have gone up to a LG instead.<br><br>Overall these have been great so far!

Great Summer Overpants
This year I ratcheted up my level of protection after a friend hit a dear at 75 mph with little protection. I purchased these overpants for my daily commute to work, and for hot weather touring.<br><br>Pros:<br>- Airflow is great, even on 85+ degree days, I stay comfortable.<br>- Easy to get on/off.<br>- Protection, well I was able to check this out in an actual crash on my way to work. Low speed crash (25 mph), broadsided a car which pulled out in front of me. The armor worked great. I slid approx. 30 ft, and the pants held up great. I walked away from the accident, but my BMW R1200RT was totaled.<br><br>Cons:<br>- No rear pockets.<br>- Front pockets too small for practice use.<br><br>Purchased a new set after the accident, use them every day I ride to work.

Tried the others, this is the right one.
I commute to work where I have to wear slacks. Needless to say, the thought of going down in gaberdine is not something that I want to experience. In the summer months heat is a problem so airflow is essential.<br><br>I tried the Joe Rocket mesh pants but the Velcro stuck to the pants. There was lots of airflow but the flimsy material would flap around and one day tore when putting my boot through. I don't think there would have been much protection in a crash if they tore with normal wear and tear.<br><br>I have a Cortech air mesh jacket that I have been happy with. So, I tried their pants too. They also have good airflow and were a lot sturdier than the JR. However, they tore in the crotch region after about 10 months. Also not too happy with that.<br><br>I have the Rev-It winter pants that cost a pretty penny. I was very impressed with the quality of construction and the fact that they were GoreTex so I decided to try the summer version.<br><br>These things are sturdy and the mesh is twice as thick as the other pants. This restricts airflow (when compared to the thin, flimsy competition) a bit but provides protection--which is the whole point. They are well made and a size L long fits nicely over slacks or shorts for weekend riding (I am a size 34 in jeans and 36 in slacks and I'm 6'1 205lbs).<br><br>The zipper comes all the way up the leg and does not tend to snag on the liner which was a problem with some of the other pants. Sure, the pockets are small but pocket size limits the amount of mesh. Besides, you should be wearing a jacket which should have pockets.<br><br>My only complaint so far is the lack of belt loops. This is not that much of a problem on these but the winter version is heavy and wants to sag with extended walking.<br><br>Great pants! I'm getting a pair for my wife.

Ride In Shorts Without Looking Like A Squid!
Rev'it pretty much nails it with these. Quality is great, and they look sharp. I got the silver, which I wear with the black Airwave jacket, and ladies are throwing themselves at me (in my mind). I am getting the hip protectors for that extra measure of safety. I've worn them on the freeway in LA Summer temps and they are comfortable, and move quite a bit of air. I've also worn them with just shorts underneath, and it's a good option for around town in 90+ heat. They are not light-weight, however. While I'm sure leathers would be much heavier, these are pretty robust pants and you can certainly feel them when you're walking around. They get hot, but I'm sure much less and slower. On the bike it's not an issue.<br><br>Only complaints: I wish the pockets had an option to open through to my jeans, so I didn't have to transfer wallet, keys, etc every time I go somewhere and remove them. I also wish they just came with the hip protectors - it's a bit of a ripoff that they couldn't throw in the $20 item.<br><br>I have the Medium Tall, as I'm 6'1" and 165 lbs. I adjusted the knee protectors to the higher position and they line up perfectly on the bike, and they fall to the perfect spot on my boots as well. Again, I needed a non-leather solution, and I'm very happy with my whole Airwave ensemble.

Not an overpant
Writing this to inform others who are looking for an over-pant that these are cut like a jean so an over-pant they are not. No room in the croch / waist area to serve over anything other than shorts / underwear.<br><br>That said, love them as a summer mesh option. No liner so be mindful of that. Quality is very good, durable, good materials. Armor is about what you'd expect. Overall they look great, vent very well, are durable and definitely not cheaply made. If you're looking for a summer mesh exclusive pant these are a fine choice.

Wanted to love this pants but it doesn't work for me.
There are so many things about this pants that I wanted to love. At this price point, it really had some great features and the airflow was also very nice. The unfortunate thing is that I have too much hip/thigh thickness for this pant to be comfortable on me. If I rode an upright bike, I think it would have been fine, but I ride an Aprilia RSV 1000 R (aggressive sportbike) and in that position, I feel a ton of constriction in my hips. I have a 38" waist and the XL fit me well when standing up. Unfortunately, when on the bike, I couldn't spread my knees out far enough because of the crotch tightness. I wish that manufacturers would put a stretch panel in those areas just like they do with leather pants. I went back and tried an XXL, but that didn't help much either. It was just more baggy and felt slightly better in the hips but still didn't have good hip movement.<br><br>The other thing that I didn't like about the pants were that they only had two pockets. Because they were so tight in the hip area, anything put in those pockets would add to the discomfort. I would have liked to at least see a back pocket for my wallet.

After freezing and soaking in England I now live in South Africa. Great weather for biking but I am 70 and risk too much riding in shorts. So I need really cool mesh protection and that is hard to find, especially when you do not want to bake in black.

I'm replacing a pair of Airwave pants I burned through in a low side crash. They did the job, so I'm getting another pair.
Randy S on Oct 3, 2015
I wanted a pair of dedicated motorcycle pants with more protection than just jeans alone. Deciding factor was the breath-ability, the knee protection, and the option to get the hip pads. Although at this price, the pads should be included.

I was looking for a reasonably priced hot weather mesh pant. These are an ZLA Awards best in class, and have reasonable reviews.

Tons of awesome reviews & REV'IT reputation
TripleT on Jun 25, 2015
I needed great ventilation (hot weather around here), wanted good protection, and liked the great reviews. Stellar job by Revzilla helping me decide. Should be very versatile--I'm getting a rain suit, and I have some pants that will go under, which should turn them into 3 season pants that will do better in the heat than dedicated 3 seasons.

Looked like very good quality pants to wear over my work shorts, on hot Florida Summer days.
William A. S on Apr 20, 2015
Looks like a good deal. Haven't gotten them yet but the white or gray color with the reflective trim increases my visibility at night.

5 year old Rotor mesh Revit pants need replacement, zipper area and velcro leg closure seems coming apart from wear and tear. Need something to match Revit GTR air jacket
Joon K on Mar 29, 2015
Wanted a good air flowing pant that provided good protection that I could possibly put over shorts or pants when I'm commuting or having a fun time in the canyons. That and they go together with my REV'IT! GT-R Air Textile Jacket.
Bandaru on Apr 13, 2016
Well ventilated according to RevZilla reviews and others
Bill C on Feb 28, 2016
Where did the hip padding go? - I have the women's version of these pants, ordered last summer. I liked them so much that I bought a pair of the men's pants for my father. My pants have removable hip padding. My father's pants arrived and they don't have any hip padding. That's when I noticed that the product description for the women's Airwave pants has changed this year. Did Rev'it! remove this feature from the men's pants as well?
Ivy M on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Ivy
Had to dig mine out to find out! Too cold up here to be using the Airwave at the moment. Mine does have hip padding in a small velcro pouch just behind the regular pockets. I agree, they are amazing pants (and jacket), but you do have to watch what you wear underneath if the weather gets cooler...they sure let in a lot of air!
What are the cleaning instructions for this pant?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hi, what is the "specially formulated textile wash" referred to in the above reply?--something Revzilla carries or something that I can buy locally?

Textile:

Textile and waterproof garments should be cleaned with a specially formulated Textile wash. This detergent gently removes all stains, without risk of damage to the membranes and breathable fabrics.
Hey everyone, I was just wondering if these pants would work well as an Autumn or early Winter pant as well as a Summer pant? It'll be in Southern Virginia in the mountains, so I'm just wondering if these would keep me warmer than say a pair of jeans in the 40-50 degree weather range? Thanks!
Will S on Aug 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Will

I cannot answer your question based on my experience with the airwave pants since I use them exclusively at 60+ temps. They are designed for maximum airflow and I am very happy with the product from this perspective.

Here are my thoughts based on your question:
1) jeans provide virtually no protection in a fall but the airwave pants do have knee and hip protection plus the fabric is more tear resistant so you will have better protection
2) warmth is also controlled by the bike you ride. I ride a BMWK1600GT so I have pretty good protection from wind which will extend the temperature range for the airwave. Your bike will also determine your comfort.
3) What about rain? These pants will provide no protection unless behind a fairing then it will only delay the inevitable. Of course jeans just soak up water and never dry.

Not knowing if you already have motorcycle clothing for other weather conditions, I will assume you do not.

Based on the conditions you mentioned I would get clothing that is not designed for summer riding. In the mountains during Fall, I would plan on some rain and would prepare for it. I also think a 3 season pant that has some venting option but can be zipped closed would be better for the temps you specified.

Revit clothing is very good and I have BMW clothing to compare against, so I would highly recommend it, but perhaps another type of pant.

Safe riding!
how are those over shorts ?
A shopper on May 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear them that way all summer in Texas. No problems. Transition to jeans in fall/spring and then to different winter pants that are water and wind proof.
Moto newb here: Is this style of pant and these pants specifically meant to go over your boots or tucked inside?
Philip W on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these work best if they are worn over your boot if you are wearing full boots. If you're wearing riding type shoes or street shoes they wear like normal pants.
How do these fit over a pair of regular jeans? Should I go a size up or just go off the size chart?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: i used the size chart and did't have any problems using my size and being able to wear jeans underneath
I'm interested in using these as a commuter overpaint in the summer to go overwork cloths. I currently have a set of Axis pants in Large which fit great. Would sizing be the same with these pants?
A shopper on Feb 27, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I'm 5'11" 34" waist and 175 and wear a MED in the Ariwave pants. I tried to wear them over my work pants which were a thin pair of UnderArmour pants and the crotch was too tight while riding the bike. If I were to wear them as an overpant regularly, I would prefer to have gone to the LG instead.

You can always order LG and XL, try both on and return the ones that don't fit as Revzilla does not have re-stock fees. Although you'll have to pay a few $ for return shipping, you'll get the best fit possible.
Do these pants have full zippers to get in and out on the side of the legs?

Do these pants have zippered pockets?

Do these pants run large like an Icon branded Overpant?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The pants unzip all the way up to the knees making it easy to pull the pants over boots.

These pants DO NOT run large. Order your size or even one size up.
Do these come with the zipper for attaching to a jacket?
Aleksei Potov on Jan 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have an older pair and they came with a zipper in the back for attaching to a jacket.
Hello! I have a 36" waist 30" inseam with a bit of a gut. Which would be the appropriate size for me?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a 36/38" waist and 31" inseam. I originally ordered size large, but they were too tight in the waist, so I returned and got XL. I would go size XL for you. I think a medium might be ok length wise, but it will feel way too tight around the waist.

We're going to break down a brand new pant from REV'IT!. It's called the Airwave pant. It is the new match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket. Now, the Airwave jacket is a replacement for the REV'IT! Air jacket. The Airwave pants match it perfectly, and they are a replacement for what we consider the roader pant.

It's a single season . . . actually, you know what? I'm going to refine that. I'd say it's about a two-season pant, so it's going to work beautifully well with the amount of mesh that you see in summertime riding conditions. You'll probably get the latter half of the spring and the early fall, depending on your temperature tolerance and depending on what base or mid-layers you wear underneath. There is no liner to this pant. It is a PWR shell D stretch construction with... you could see the silver are the new style Airwave mesh panels so they're going to flow a ton of air.

And actually, in my opinion, there's a black version and there's anthracite/silver, which has a really nice sport touring style to it, but you can really wear this in a lot of different scenarios depending on the bike you're riding. Notice we have a new style here. The way that the knees are articulated is new for these pants. It's a big step forward in mesh pants from REV'IT!

If we start at the top and work our way down, you're going to see that we have a snap and a slide construction, which is a bit better than just a double snap. Sizing wise, the Airwave pant is actually going to come in shorts, regulars, and tall sizes, which is really nice in both colors. There's also a completely styled and ergonomically fit ladies version as well. 

The other thing I want to showcase is that it's a nice safety feature. We saw this for the first time in the Tornado, but what they've done is they've put the entry zipper that goes all the way up to mid-thigh and they put it on the inside. It's a nice high sock there you got it going, buddy. But they put it on the inside of the leg, and what that does is... it's a preference thing, but in our opinion, it's a safer garment because you're taking an area of weakness in a seam -- because zippers can explode -- and you're moving it away from the impact zones. Typically, the outside of the leg, the lateral sides of your body, are more prone to impact and abrasion with the ground than the inside of your legs.

Homing in on things on the side, you're going to see a side pocket. You're also going to see a zip and an adjuster, a slide on both sides of the hip. This is a nice feature. And as we move down the leg, you're going to see Scotchlite reflective panels, and you have a velcro adjuster that goes around the bottom of the cuff. 

Looking at the back, you have some slate elasticated panel across the back side, seven-inch connection zipper. This is a YKK VISLON zipper, the most durable of the YKK family. And then also note, you're going to have Airwave mesh that goes all the way down the backs of the legs. You do have temper foam and hit panels as well on these guys. 

So remember, it's sub $200. It's a hot weather riding pant. You're going to get two season out. There's a ladies version, a short, medium, and tall sizes, and you're going to have two color options. The silver/anthracite, or the anthracite/light color here, and then also a black.

We think it's well-positioned and we surely like the style and the new fit pattern from REV'IT!
