REV'IT! Gear 2 Leather Pants
A bit restrictive
Size chart was accurate. I'm 5'9", waist at the navel is 39" and inseam is 30." 54 short was what the chart indicated and the actual fit was spot on. I feel well protected when riding, but two design features make it restrictive: (1) the hip padding makes it hard to lean forward or into a tuck, (2) there is no give in the crotch which makes it harder to lift the leg over the bike, and when I'm sitting the pants rise up to accommodate the legs being apart. The problem was bad enough that I took it to a tailor and paid $60 to sew in a leather gusset in the crotch. I believe Rev'it should have addressed this in the design. Also, a suggestion for Anthony: while reviewing clothing it's great to see the models standing, but how about commenting on how the clothes fit while riding. Maybe have the model sit on a bike. Anyway, Revzilla customer service was top notch. Thanks.

A good choice for a summer pant, if not the perfect pair.
First I must say I had some issues with sizing. I got them in a size 50 which fit well in the waist and felt good over all. However the knee armour ended up putting pressure on my knees while in the riding position. Even after adjusting the knee armour it was not perfect. I have exchanged them for a pair of 52's, the pressure in my knees is gone but they do fit a touch loose (not too bug, just not what I would consider "the right size")
That said, they are a good pair of pants. They offer good protection in all the right places while moving enough air to keep you cool. The build quality seems great with no issues in the short term. They zip right up with my Revit galactic jacket. They fit well over my boots although I prefer to tuck the liner into my boot rather than leave it zipped to the pants.
The pockets are a little tight and wont hold much, I end up leaving my wallet and phone in my jacket instead.

Perfect fit provided you take 1 or 2 sizes up
I'm dutch as is the Revít brand so you would expect the size to be spot on. Most other European brands are difficult to get a good fit as they're too tight and/or too small for me.
My jeans are 38waist 30length. As these pants are also available in Short fit , I opted for the 54 Short. These proved to be too small on the waist, so tried 56 Short. I could get into the pants but on the sporty bike bending forward I wanted more waist and leg covered with leather and a less tighter fit. In the end I walked out the store with the regular 58 (58 Short wasn't available) ! The length is still not too much as it goes over the boot and then protects you from rain dripping into the boots. Keep in mind that most European brands sizes are way too small for sturdy guys like me, so start with 2 sizes bigger than your casual wear and go sit on a bike to check that protectors are in the right place and the pants/boots fit well together in that position. If then these pants are too big.. go back one size at a time until you're satisfied. Also keep in mind that the connecting zipper works with all Rev'it jackets when they're not older than 5 years. (Rev'it jackets come with an extra zipper that you can sow into any pants, no matter what brand it will allow you to connect pants and jacket this way).
For those of you that want to put the pants IN the boot, in some narrow boots this won't be comfortable (won't fit comfortably in my Daytona Road Star GTX boots)
These pants really keep you dry even after driving 3 hours in the rain ...we have plenty of wind and rain over here in NL ;).
Quality and protection are excellent, ventilation is a bonus when driving in warm weather conditions.

Fit is perfect
I would say these pants strike a pretty good balance on airflow and protection but lean toward protection. Fortunently, this is carried over in looks. I've yet to see any vented gear that looks good and has a serious construction. The suggested waist and length were spot on for my measurements and the knee armor is positioned well as are the hip pads. I suspect with the rain barrier in or light layers, I could ride these almost year around.

Great product but lenght is too short even with tall size
I just tried these pants for a 1500 mile trip though Arizona and Utah. The termps ranged from 38 degrees F at the low to 97 degrees at the high and they were great. I'm 6'2'' tall and I ordered a tall size, but they still aren't long enough. I wish they were 2 inches longer as they rode above my boot. I also wish they gave another inch in the crotch.

These pants were just what I was looking for! I spent lots of time looking for something that was not too bulky, would offer protection but be cool enough for hot weather riding as well. Also bought a pair of the womens version for my wife.
They are made well and have leather in all the right places. I have not used with the inner liner in yet but for riding in the spring through fall, its been nice. Comfortable after the first few rides. Added extra padding to the hips. Zips to my Revit Jacket.
I got a size bigger since everyone noted they run a size small. Here is my stats since I found it very useful as well. 215 lbs, 5'11, 38 waist, 32 inseam. Bought the size 56. I dont have much of a butt so although the overall fit is good, it still looks a bit saggy back there. If I went with 54, the waist would have been too tight.
Hope that helps!

Отличные функциональные мотоштаны
Мотобрюки отличные. (Покупал в комплекте с курткой. Тоже Rev'it! Ignition) В жаркую погоду хорошо продуваются. В холодную и мокрую погоду с дополнительно пристегиваемыми внутренними штанами ездить вполне приемлемо. Выглядят отлично. Так как падать, слава Богу, пока не доводилось, то по защите и прочности ничего сказать не могу, но первое впечатление о защите - хорошее. Бедра прикрыты, колени есть. Удобные. Вывод: отличные мотоштаны и на жаркую и на прохладную погоду. Своих денег, я думаю, стоят. (хотя сравнивать не с чем. Это моя первая мотоэкипировка:)

I really like these pants. Take the time to get the fit right, it pays off. I got these on a Friday and went for a partially intended ride that only got longer. At the end of the day, I had been in the pants for about 12 hours straight. No complaints tho. They feel great on the bike, and require minimal break in. If you're looking for something to wear underneath, I use the Klim Tactical shorts, also from Revzilla.
