REV'IT! Campo Jeans
Comparison Campo v Lombard
So. If you are trying to decide on either the Lombard or Campo here are some tips from my perspective.
I am 6ft with a 32 inch waist in Levi jeans. I have athletic build with lean but weight trained calves and thighs.
I ordered Lombard in 32/34 and Campo in 32/36. For sure the 36 is the right length for me. This is especially true in the saddle where jeans will ride up on your boots. I don't mind them being a little long off the bike. You can turn them up inside or outside.
Both fit snug in the thighs and calves. You might think too snug right out of the box. In my case. i thought too tight. But i wore them in for a few weeks and kept them away from a washing machine and they are stretching out a bit making the fit more comfortable.
The waist in the Campo is a more snug fit than the Lombard which is huge and you will need a belt to stop them falling off. Great if you want to wear armoured shorts. Not great if you don't and don't want a belt. Campo has no such problem around the waist and feels more fitted.
Both are very well made. Although there is one stitching flaw in my Lombards, i can live with it. Both are very cosy to wear in cold weather on and off the bike and i wear them all the time as casual jeans. With these styles no one is noticing they are motorcycle specific.
My preference between the two is the Campo for sure. If you are trying to decide check the reviews for both. The biggest issue with the Lombard is the huge waist. Others seem to agree.
With thequality, style, technical features and the price..Campo has my vote for best value MC jeans you can get today.

Decent for their purpose
I was excited about these jeans when I saw them reviewed. What I like: that they are discreet motorcycle apparel, you don't look all geared up when you are going around town; decent knee protectors; style is European. What I did not like after a few times wearing them is that they are pretty tight in the legs--and I am a thin, fit guy. On a hot day I feel like they totally cling without breathing room, and the dark color absorbs the heat. I'd say they are great for moderate temps, but feel pretty warm for those hot, humid, mid-Atlantic days. I also think the waist size runs large by an inch. I had to exchange my first pair. Overall, they seem like they will hold up to a lot of wear, but in retrospect I am not sure they are worth the high cost if you are not going to use them regularly.

Great Jeans - Waist HUGE!
The Campos just arrived yesterday. I took the advice of most of the other reviews and ordered a size down. Normally I'm a 32X34 so I ordered the 31X34. STILL TOO BIG! I have a good 2 - 3 inches of extra real estate in the waist. Rev'It really needs to fix this issue. The length is accurate.
Other than this, I really like them. The back pockets are a bit large for my taste but they look great and look less like riding pants than the other Dainese pair that I own. For jeans, the knee pads are substantial and the cushion seat is noticeable . I'm trading them in for the 30X34. If those don't fit, I'll be returning for good.

Knee height way too low, knee twists inwards
The fabric is soft and slightly stretchy, the color is a very dark denim, stitching is great...on the whole these are a great looking pair of jeans. (Legs are quite skinny btw...I was barely ok with them, YMMV) The quality feels great and the features are great too. Can't say much for durability/on-the-bike feel because I had to RMA - which brings me to the negative part of the review.
The knee pockets seem way too low. I tried inserting the armor in the highest pocket and it still sat below knee, and yes, I tried the bent-leg riding position. One could say that I possibly have short legs...but if I were to pull the knee up to where it should be then the bottom of the jeans came up way to high. I.e. the proportion is simply off.
Another problem is that the knee seems to twist inward and I had to manually twist it out to sit right. Not something I want to do if I spent $250 on a pair of jeans.

Not for Shortish legs
The quality, seems like its there and they felt comfortable when i tried them on, if slightly on the "hipster" tight side. The real problem for me was the knee armor, Too low even in the highest pocket, so i had to RMA. If you have normal legs these seem like they would be awesome. But if you have Long torso/short leg syndrome like me i'd skip these if i was planning on keeping the armor in.

very happy with this purchase
I have 2 pairs of riding jeans (draggin australia, partial and full kevlar lined) that were a disappointment in that they were incredibly warm to wear in the summer time. I can get away with wearing nice jeans at work, so wanted style, comfort and protection for a daily city commute.
Been wearing Campo jeans for 3 days. I am 6'3" and thin. I wear a 35"W and 34" L, but like a longer leg in a riding jean. I ordered 34Wx36L and they fit perfect. So sizing runs 1 size large. Look and feel are similar to the Japanese raw denim I wear. This are a narrow, skinny jean. This works for me and it holds the knee armor in place. They are not hot like the kevlar lined jeans I have. Knee armor is easy enough to take in and out in a bathroom when I get to work. Detailing and quality appear very good. This gives me some confidence that if I had a spill the seams are not going to burst.
I will for sure end up buying a second pair so I can alternate.

Only has 1 flaw
The style and protection are top of the line. The legs are not skinny per say but close enough for a riding jean. The extra loose waist is not a show stopper and can easily be fixed. The only major issue I have is with the twist. A friend of mine and I bought two pairs and both of us experienced a twist at the legs where the knee protection slides inward so you have to straighten it by hand when you sit or stand up. Other hand that, you can just spend your whole day in these (if you remove the knee and optional hip protectors) looking like a regular person which was what I was hoping for besides having the safety provided by the materials and the design.

Good looking riding jean
I usually wear size 31 standard fit seven jeans and size 30 diesel. These fit more like diesel jeans and I had to get the size 30. The size 31 crotch hung down too low and was very baggy in the waist. The size 30 fit just right in the leg area but the waist actually felt like a size 31. The denim material actually looks like designer denim material unlike Dainese jeans. The knee pads that come with it do not line up with my knees very well and they are also very cheap. Both of the knee pads broke in half when I bent them to put into the knee sleeves but that's okay because I wasn't going to use them anyways. Overall, a really nice look jean.
