Deal of the century I am very impressed with the features and the fit and finish of these pants. I bought a pair and was so happy that I bought a second pair as a back up pair. Great product at a great price. January 19, 2015
Good pants for travel and adv riding Ordered a M. I'm 5'10 / 165 lbs and the size is just right. December 15, 2014
Medium tall is a great fit for a tall skinny guy. I originally ordered Neptune GTX pants to match my Neptune GTX jacket but they only came in a medium regular length. These turned out to be to short and didn't offer enough coverage over my boots. I switched to the Defender since it is available in a medium tall. I am 6'2" 160lbs and these fit great. I like that they have a slimmer cut. I recently did a 1000 mile trip and wore them in all 3 configs - (Pant, Gortex, Fleece), (Pant, Fleece), (Pant only). All 3 configs were very comfortable. I do wish there were more vents for air though. September 30, 2014
The Defender is great gear! I bought the Defender jacket 2 years ago and absolutely love it. I wear it in torrential rain frequently and I can attest that Gore Tex is king. When the time came to retire my beloved REV'IT! Dakar pants I'd been wearing since 2007 simply because they leaked, The Defender was the logical choice. I love the drop liner design and the most prominent feature here is the Gore Tex. I am 5' 10" / 190 and 39" around the middle. The XL standard length fit spot on. I really appreciate the higher waist. The 3d mesh backed vents seem ample but are there at the expense of cargo pockets. The front pockets, the only pockets on the garment are rather small. I don't use pockets much so I don't miss them. The velcro closure cinches up nicely around my boots. However, the absence of gussets at the bottom of the legs places the velcro strips in direct proximity to the Gore Tex liner when the leg zippers are open and could cause damage if one isn't careful. It's just something to be aware of. I don't know how they missed this in an otherwise top of the line piece of gear. April 23, 2014
Sizing all over the place Bought these based off the size chart. They are not even close to realistic for the sizing. I bought the medium, even with all the liners in, they are so big, like clown pants. March 10, 2014
Great Purchased with jacket (see my review they are the same) These pants are great! This is my first pair of motorcycle pants so I don't have another reference. I used to wear gortex rain pants and a set of insulated gortex bibs when it was cold. These have replaced both and have the added protection. They are a bit bulky to walk in. They are very comfortable in the saddle. I'm looking forward to some long days riding in them. They are very waterproof. The zipper and velcro on the cuffs is great. My only complaint is that I have to take my boots off to put the pants on or off. May 21, 2013
Let's hope 3rd times a charm Acquiring right fit has been a head ache. I referred to the sizing chart, videos, and manufacturer website before submitting my initial order. First purchase was size Medium Tall. These fit great in the waist--no ruffled up material after synching them down--but thigh was ridiculously tight (it looked ridiculous and was terribly uncomfortable). Returned those and placed second order so as to get a quick turn around. The $38 (w/ insurance at $600 value) return shipping w/ UPS hurt bad! The replacement pair were the Large standard length. These arrived w/ a Hershey's chocolate wrapper in the pocket; that was odd? The seem in the crotch was tearing already, and the knee protection was riding high when seated on my Ducati Multistrada 1200 (even after adjusting the knee pad to the lower setting). RevZilla came to the rescue and provided a pre-paid return shipping label and I'm now awaiting the same pants in Large tall. May 8, 2013
Great pants I have had these pants for a while now. Worn them mostly in colder temps, and they perform very well. Normally I wear them with just my skivvies, but if it's really cold, usually under 45 F or so I will also wear long johns. Have ridden with them down to low 20's, and no problems. fit and finish is excellent, quality construction. A bit pricey, but definately worth the money. zippers don't leak, and they don't snag. Taking liners out isn't super quick, but only takes a few minutes, so that's really not that bad. I love em! March 9, 2013

David C: Excellent reviews,good price,comfortable dealing with Revzilla. Jan 3, 2015
Steven U: REV't is excellent quality and the sale price is great. Dec 16, 2014
DeLeon A: I chose this pant to go along with the Defender GTX jacket I also ordered. I have a big trip coming up and wanted to have all weather protection and something to keep my legs dry. I hope that these pants will live up to my expectations. Dec 15, 2014
Max G: It is part of the gear i decided to buy for my first trip to Chilean patagonia. My decition was taken after looking at Anthony's review at Revzilla, plus those published by customers who already bought the product Sep 26, 2014

Bobby S: webbikeworld review! Apr 29, 2014
Robert M: Cuz I liked its looks Oct 18, 2013
Theodore J: I have a Sand 2 jacket. I tried the Sand 2 pants and the Defender pants on in a store, and I thought the hip padding in the Defender pants was a lot more comfortable than the hip padding in the Sand 2 pants. Aug 19, 2013
David V: Florida weather made me choose the matching jacket (best airflow reviews in a Gore-Tex jacket), so I had to get the pants too. I wish the pants had forgone the extra layers of 'comfort' material inside the outer shell and attached the Gore-Tex layer directly after the protective outer layer to reduce bulk. I wear them with the Gore-Tex layer in more often than I use it in my jacket because it's so much effort to remove both linings and then carry them around and then put them in when it rains.

A shopper asked: I'm 6'0" and 170lbs. From your experience, what would be the correct size for me? May 5, 2014

Richard G: I am 5"10" and 185 lbs and have size XL. My inseam is 31". They are a little long, although I am not walking on them, but more importantly when I am sitting on my bike the knee pads are in the perfect position and my ankles are covered. I didn't want them to ride up high on my legs and not provided protection/warmth to my ankle area. Remember they are not worn as overpants. I wear just underwear or long johns and a t shirt on top. At your height I would think about going up a size from XL. The sleeves on the jacket are the perfect length. There is plenty of adjustments to tighten both the jacket and pants. May 5, 2014

Jeff S: In my opinion the sizing guide near the bottom of the page is pretty accurate. The best way to get a good fit is to use a measuring tape to determine your waist, hip and inseam measurements. Given your height and weight I think you'll probably end up with a medium long length. The folks at Revzilla are also really good at finding you the right size, so give them a call. Whatever the case, Revzilla has a great return policy as long as you return them in new condition...i.e, don't remove the tags unless you're happy with the fit. May 5, 2014

christopher n: i'm 6'0" and 175lbs and these fit perfectly. my inseam is 30" and outseam 42". i wear a pair of SIDI gortex boots which fit perfectly under the bottom cuffs as well. if you take out the different linings, then you have a lighter product and it still fits very well. goes with the jacket like PB & J.

the build quality is great, prebends in the all the right places, zips, buttons, pockets, vents all extremely well crafted and seams are watertight.

Ken M: First I'd say...check the measurements in their size chart. For me they were accurate. If you're looking for pants to wear alone (not as overpants) my guess would be size medium... depending on your inseam you may consider the talls. I'm 5'11" and generally wear 32x34 jeans and the medium (not tall..not short) fit well for me. May 5, 2014

James M asked: Does this product work well as an overpant? Much of my riding will be commuting? If so, how would I size it (1 size up?)? If not, what is another overpant that works well with the REV'IT Defender jacket? Thanks Dec 18, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Bobby S: On this product, definitely size up, although not sure on 1 or 2 sizes. I have the pants and like them - but they are not designed as overpants. they'd be too tight over jeans for instance.

Also, just as an fyi, if you are between lengths, go longer. I wish i'd bought longer. Since the pants have some thickness to them, when seated on the bike they "ride up" more than regular pants. Fine with riding boots but not so much with shorter height shoes.

Christopher E: I use these as overpants worn over jeans, with a few caveats. First, I ordered them 1 size larger than would have been indicated by the sizing chart. I'm able to wear them as overpants either alone or with the goretex liner. As the pants fit for me, I can't squeeze in the thinsulate liner over jeans. They're a little snug in the thigh area, so if you deadlift more than 400lbs, that may be a limiting factor. Dec 19, 2014
Reply to Christopher Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David B: I wear a 36 waist and the large fits very well. It is a great over pant and I am very pleased with my selection. I did remove the liner and use heated, uninsulated liner in place, along with my jeans. Let me know if you need more specific info. Dec 18, 2014

bostonbear: Very nice. I just received them and indeed they have a hook and a nice snap. True about sizing. I normally take an XL with a 29-30 inseem... ordered the XXL short and they fit perfectly.

Love 'em. Thanks.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  REV'IT! sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
