Scorpion Trey Pants
Heavy and very snug with jeans
This is the first pair of riding pants I've owned so I don't really have anything to compare these to.
Based on the sizing chart I am supposed to be firmly in a Large (33-34 waist and 34 inseam). However, with the liner in these pants they are very snug when you wear jeans underneath. I am hopeful that they pants will "loosen" up over time.
Even with the liner out, if you're wearing jeans, they are a little snug in the crotch.
I wore shorts under them today, with the liner out, and they were great. However, yesterday, with jeans under them, I couldn't even tell there was venting. I was just hot. However, I can't really fault the pant for that -it was hot out (85+) and it would be unreasonable to expect a pant with so much material to seem like it isn't on.
1. I really like all the heavy duty denier material. I feel like if I needed these pants to provide some abrasion resistance they would.
2. I really like the fact that the side zippers go all the way up to the waist. If you wear these fully use those zippers as it makes it so much easier to put the pants on and adjust your normal clothes.
3. I like the hip and knee armor. They are the main reason I bought the pant and I feel much more protected with these on. The knee armor is pretty long and covers the top half of my shin. I'm pretty happy about that.
4. I am glad the ankle cuff can close firmly. Before having these when wearing jeans my pant leg often got caught on my foot peg when I was putting my foot on the ground (at a stop light for instance). Having everything cinched up is really nice.
1. They are Tight with pants on under neath. You might want to order up a size. I don't know if this is normal. Maybe ask the experts at Revzilla before you order.
2. Heavy. This is really a pro and a con. I'm glad they are heavy becuase I feel like they will offer good protection but, at the same time, they are much heavier than I expected so they are pretty warm, even without the liner if the temp is over 75 out.

My son loves them
Bought for my son who is 6'1". He tried the tall first because pants are usually not long enough. The talls were too long, knee pad too low. Returned then and got standard length which are perfect.

Great value and comfort
These riding pants have great value and comfort. Only thing I have found is that the hip protection pads keep rolling/folding up and have to be constantly adjusted. Other than that they breath nicely, easy to put on and super comfortable while riding or just standing around.

Great for the money but you still get what you pay for
I bought these pants about a month ago. These are my first pair of riding pants and I was looking for an overpant that I could wear to work and something waterproof for long trips.
First thing out of the box they looked great! The styling is clean but not dull and the workmanship looks excellent. I tried them on and at first they seemed like they might be too small. With a pair of jeans on and the liner in it was borderline uncomfortable (I'm 6'1", 175-ish pounds with a medium build and a 32 inseam, I ordered the large) I decided that they were closes enough and kept them. After a few uses they stretched just enough and are now perfectly comfortable.
With the liner out they breathe great. With the liner in they're comfortable to around the upper 70's if you're moving. They don't look completely ridiculous off the bike. They're still very obviously riding pants but they're not too bulky or restrictive. The adjustable knee armor is a nice touch as is the velcro adjustment at the hips and ankles. The full length zipper on both the liner and the shell make it a snap to take the pant off and on.
The liner is a bit awkward to get in and out. Well, awkward to attach. I'm new to riding pants but I would think there might be a better solution then the tiny loop-plus-snap mechanism. Also, the zipper around the top snagged on me a few times right at the end. It hasn't done it the past few times so maybe it's fixed itself but it was pretty disappointing when it caught the very first time I tried to take out the liner. More reflective piping couldn't hurt.
They're not completely waterproof. I rode through 9 hours of heavy rain during a recent trip and after about 2 hours I started feeling like something wasn't quite right. At first I thought maybe the waterproof/breathable liner was one or the other but couldn't do both at the same time. Maybe I was just suffering from "swamp shorts" but no. When I stopped for lunch I pulled down the overpants and sure enough my jeans were soggy in the crotch/seat area. Not completely soaked but still moderately unpleasant. The rest of my pants were completely dry (except near the cuff but that was likely wicking from my saturated boots). There is also the issue that since the liner is the "waterproof" portion, and not the shell, that you now have to walk around with soggy pants till they dry. The shell does dry quickly, though. As did my jeans, even with the overpants still on.
For the price these are great pants. But you don't pay for Gore-Tex and you don't get Gore-Tex level protection. If staying 100% completely dry in all circumstances is a necessity you might need to go up in price or settle for the garbage bag style rain suits. I would recommend these pants if you're on a budget but with a few caveats. For my needs and budget these will work just fine for the foreseeable future.

great pant for the price
these were just about THE ONLY riding pant that came in a 36 inseam (in the large tall)
im 6'1" about 155lbs. i tried 2 other brands in medium and large talls. they were all too short.
and there is enough adjustability in the sides that theyre not too loose.
the trey pants are comfotrable, breathe well (still get hot in the florida sun at stop lights), and overall im VERY happy with them after about a month.

For the price these pants are very well made and the full length side zippers make them very easy to put on and take off. I'm about 6'1" and 185 pounds with a 34" inseam, after using the Revizilla video to measure myself and the Scorpion sizing chart I ordered size XL and they fit perfectly over a pair of jeans.

Great Riding pant!
The pant is over all worth every penny and they are very comfortable with lots of adjustability, I can only say that the one thing that bothered me some was that when I sat on my seat the pant kinda rises up due to how it's made I assume, but the waist of the pant was touching my belly button and had to adjust it but other than that I love the pants!
