Scorpion Trey Pants
These pants are everything I wanted and needed.
When I first bought these pants. I should have fit in the medium sized pants. My waist is average, at a 32 waist. They fit really snug. Especially when I wore a pair of jeans under them. I couldn't close the zipper. I sent them back, and it was super easy and simple for the exchange to a large. So if people are gonna get these pants. They should consider getting the next size up. Figuring everyone would want to wear jeans under them. Other then that I'm super happy with them. I'm glad I got them.

Fit was very close a bit tight. Made very well, quality zippers.

great fit and feel
did a lot of research and finally decided on these pants. Have increased my riding time since the inner lining blocks the wind. No more long johns. Have not tried without the lining.

Made for skinny giants
First my size. I'm 5'10 with a measured 33" waist and a 30" inseam. I'm reasonably athletic but not a small guy. I ordered these pants in size medium and they simply do not fit. As you can see from the pictures, they're at least 4 inches too long. They have a 34" inseam, but the top section is also longer than typical pants so the inseam sits a bit low. Overall the pants measure 43-1/2" long. For comparison's sake I measured a pair of khakis I would typically wear and they're 38-1/4".
I could deal with the bunched up material around the ankles, but the real problem is in the knees and waist. Revzilla says these are sized as overpants. Well, I did manage to cram a pair of shorts under them, but it took quite a bit of effort and wasn't at all comfortable. The fit in the waist is pretty much what I get from a pair of shorts in 32 or 33. This was with the adjusters let all the way out. And I can't go up in size, because, according to the sizing chart, the inseam gets even longer in size large.
Of course the knee armor hangs completely below my knees when I'm standing, so when I assume the riding position, I have to manually pull them up to cover my knees. I figure if I go flying, and my legs straighten, the armor is more likely to go down than up, leaving my knees unprotected. I have the armor adjusted as high as it will go, but there's only about an inch and a half of adjustment in there, and they're not high enough.
I mostly planned to wear them without pants on beneath, so the waist isn't a huge concern, but I was hoping that, with the D-ring adjusters, I'd at least have the option of using them as an overpant. That's not happening.
Forgetting the sizing issue, these seem like really great pants. They've got good range of motion, so you won't have trouble throwing your leg over the seat. They're pretty heavy, which I would expect for protective-wear. I stood in front of a fan in them with the liner out and could feel a nice breeze. Then I stood there with just the liner on and couldn't feel the fan at all. So that works well. I love the included hip armor. Most pants just have foam, but this is CE certified SAS-Tec, and it's comfortable. The textile material feels very sturdy, as does the mesh. It's a very tight weave mesh, which is not only protective, but it's also opaque, so you can wear just your undies underneath if you want to. Win-win. I would have preferred something that wasn't solid black, but that's like 90% of motorcycle pants so what can you do. The four pockets are nice, and they appear to be waterproof, though I haven't put that to the test. I wouldn't anticipate any problems with the zippers. They're small enough to not get in the way but they seem sturdy. I also like the padding in the knee to absorb some of the shock of impact. Everything about this pant screams quality. You can really see where your $200 went.
I won't be keeping them because of fitment, but if you're a basketball player with a slim build, these are the pants for you.

3 XL did not fit 42" waist
Never have worn a 3 XL in anything. I wear a 42x32 jean. I figured that I would rather have pants be a little too big so I wen with the 3 XL as recommended. Unfortunately, these pants were at least 4 inches too small in the waist. For the larger rider, I would not recommend this pant. However, I really like the design and look of this pant. Wish they had my size.

Yes, I would agree, they are good looking pants that fit well with good airflow.
I decided to buy these pants after a rather nasty fall. I live in Kenya and the roads are filled with all manner of dangers, including cattle, reckless drivers, pot holes (lots of pot holes) and human traffic. These pants have helped restore my confidence in riding around again.

GREAT PAIR OF OVER PANTS!
I'm 6'-6" tall, 250lbs, 38"x36" Jeans and the 3XL fit perfectly over my jeans with the liner. I rode in 39F weather today and felt comfortable with just a pair of jeans on underneath. The padding is in the perfect locations and the pants are comfortable when riding. The pants also look great. The feel and quality are worth the price.
I ordered the 2XL first, but the waist was too tight so Revzilla sent me the 3XL and I received them within two days. Awesome customer service.

Scorpion Trey Pants
Well its a little soon to comment about durability as just received the pants in Aug. Good air flow, comfortable for me in the end of summer temps of 95+ degrees without the liner. I like the smaller metal zipper hoping it is more durable then the plastic YKK zipper that is so prone to failure in my experience's in different riding pants, riding jackets and trunk bags I have had in the past. Nothing worse then having to throw away a perfect good item because of a failed zipper. Currently wearing them in winter weather(with liner in), comfortable down to 26 degrees with just a hint of chill after 20 minutes on highway. Today it was 16 degrees and could feel a sting on the upper part of my thighs on my 30 minute commune to work. I work in a shop so I also have jeans plus coveralls on underneatht.
In regards to the fit, well using the info on the site about measuring above the waist at the belly button I got the right size the first time.
