Scorpion Covert Jeans
First pair of riding pants. Definitely happy with them.
I had to have the legs hemmed, but I expected that being in the "vertically challenged" category. The pants are heavier than normal jeans, but they don't restrict movement in any way. The morning chill is blocked a little better. The mesh lining inside is soft and comfortable -- sometimes I have to remind myself I am not wearing pajamas at work.

Jeans are comfortable and look / feel like regular denim jeans. For the price and protection you can't go wrong. I'm a 33 in jeans and had to go with a 36 and get the jeans taken in.

Quality, heavy denim and very nice style. Fit is pretty standard in the waist, but as noted elsewhere, I did have to have them hemmed ($20) after I received them due to the uniform 32" length. These jeans are great for riding around town, and allow you to look very stylish on the bike while maintaining an extra layer of protection.

Good riding jeans bad armor placement
I am 6' 185lbs and got a 34. They fit as well both on and off the bike without hemming and are relatively comfortable except that the Velcro pokes my leg once in a while. They are warmer than regular jeans and dont allow as much airflow. My main problem with them is that the armor pockets are too high up and are not adjustable. I got the sas-tec knee armor but returned it because they were not in the proper place. The hip armor seems to be in the proper place. I would recommend these if you dont need armor.

Great safety jeans that look normal
They look & feel just like normal jeans. Well, more like flannel-lined jeans as they do get a little warm wearing off the bike. For the definite added protection, the cost, and the look, I couldn't recommend a better pair than the scorpion. Probably going to get another pair for the summer commute.

Waste sizing is spot on and they look and feel like regular jeans.
The jeans look and feel great. I wear a size 36 in Levi jeans and ordered a size 36 - perfect fit around the waist. The jeans are very long however so I'll need to have them hemmed. I've worn them 3 times now and have no complaints :)

Great price for amount of protection, slightly large.
Haven't gone down in these so cannot comment on the reliability. I am normally a 36-38 waist (5'11" 210) depending on the brand. I tried this on in a 36 and they were way too tight but just in the waist. I got a 38 and they are way too loose. They say not to wash, I assume so they do not shrink too much. So I washed them twice in hot water so they would shrink up a bit. This worked pretty good, they fit much better now, a little baggy in the legs. They are also long which is to be expected, I had my wife hem them and they are all good. The placement of the knee pockets is strange, sits very high on your knee, unlike most overpants where the pads sit way too low. They are heavy jeans so being too big makes them hard to keep them up have to ratchet my belt real tight, but with the protection thats what you get. I wear these if I need to get off my bike and walk around etc. for commuting its just easier to where overpants. But all in all I am happy with the purchase at this price.
