Scorpion Women's Savannah II Pants
Great pants but quirky fit
If you are like me, it is hard to buy anything online these days because sizing is no longer universal and size charts don't always help. That being said, I will try to provide my assessment in hopes to help with that! I am 5'8" tall with an athletic build, (muscular thighs and butt, straight waist and hips) and wear a size 7 in pants with a 36 inch inseam. Overall, these pants are wonderful and I highly recommend them. They fit more like a jean in that they have a lower rise, but not so low as to be uncomfortable when you ride. I ordered the size Large. The waist was a bit large and I was disappointed that there were not waist tabs to adjust the fit. I got around this problem by wearing a belt. The butt area was nice and I didn't feel at all crowded. (I did wear a light running tight under these pants). The thigh area was a bit big but the pants come with nifty thigh laces and I was able to snug them up and they fit fine. The length was a bit short on me, but I have a 36 inch inseam, so it was noticeable while riding, but I would say most women will be just fine with the length. I likely could have exchanged these for a medium, but I liked the bit of room in the large to allow for layering. We rode in 60 degree temperatures and I stayed very comfortable all day long! If you are a pear shape, this pant might be a bit tricky to fit, as it is cut fairly straight, but if you are willing to work with the pants, you will definitely be happy you bought them. They are well worth the money and the protective padding was right where it needed to be and did not feel bulky or look strange. Overall this pant is great and it looks very nice on and definitely does its job!

Great product overall
I am very happy with this product. It fits well and has a great look. I find they get a tad hot once off the bike and a little stiff when you're first swinging your leg over, but what bike pants aren't that way. Great value and overall I'm very happy with the product.

Awesome Pants...needs heat protection by calf
I ranked the 'bang for the buck' and 'protection and durability' only as 'good' because the pants don't have any heat resistant material on the lower calf. I didn't realize it until later but I had brushed up against my pipes and burned a hole in the pants the first day I wore them! I bought the Frog Togg heat repair kit and will be putting that on the pants tonight ...but on the flip side, I also didn't feel any heat through the pants. These pants are well insulated-- I didn't feel any cold wind as they kept me warm on a chilly morning ride to work. I love the fit and the style. Based on everyone else's input, I ordered one size larger and that worked for me (normally wear a medium but ordered large). I am able to wear them as an overpant. I love the look and it matches my Scorpion Nip Tuck jacket very nicely! I would definitely recommend these--just watch out near your pipes when parking you bike!

I just got these yesterday and have only been on a short ride with them, but they are great. Good protection, decent looking pants, I really like the zip out wind-break liner. I got a size medium, I'm about 5' 5" 130 pounds. I would definitely recommend them.

Awesome riding pants!!
I am 5' 112lbs and have struggled finding riding pants that fit me. I got the XS and they fit perfectly! Also there are ties on the sides of the thighs that you can adjust to make them even tighter. I wore these while on the back of my boyfriend's bike from Long Island to Boston and these pants made all the difference. Amazing airflow through the legs, as long as you unzip the inner lower leg vents. I really noticed a difference when I wore my Kevlar jeans after and realized how much better I could grip the bike with the scorpion II pants. I would strongly recommend these pants for those petite riders that want maximum protection and airflow.

savannah 2 pants
After reading lots of reviews on the savannah pants I decided to order a medium because I had read they were cut small.I was excited to get my order the next day.Well they fit me like a pop tent.The waste sat just above my hip bones and there was atleast four inches of material hanging loose.So I called Revzilla and spoke with a sales person,he was very helpful.I had decided to order an XS.
My height is 5'3" and maybe 130lbs I wear size 3 junior.My waste is 29 flat tummy..hip bones 33..rear end 37..circumfrence around leg 22..I hope this imfo may help someone..I did notice the pants fit nicely around my leg so I am hoping the new pants are not to small in that area..I will write another review after I receive my new pants..got my fingers crossed.

Protection with style
I couldn't find anything like these in Australia: thrilled to get them from Revzilla
As a novice rider protection is very important to me, but my vanity doesn't permit the 'Michelin Man' look either. Thankfully, these trousers have it all - sleek and sexy looks, proper armour, zip out thermal lining, the lot. These will do very nicely year round in Sydney's temperate climate.
I am super happy with my purchase; I have slender legs and butt so these are a little big on me, but I can comfortably fit a pair of jeans underneath. I am 5'7" and 120lbs (170cm and 55kg) and the small is roomy but not ridiculous. The xs would have been too short in the leg. Feels very comfortable riding with jeggings or similar underneath.
Top product, would recommend to anyone!

Love, but too big.
I ordered the M because the reviews I read sounded like they ran a bit small. My measurements are 30" waist, 34" at hip bone and 36" around butt/hips. These were 2-3
inches too big at hip/waist, and maybe an inch or so big at butt. They do ride lower, so the waist measurement they give is actually of no use.
I am going to order the small and hopefully they will be good. Love the style- very flattering, and they seem like they will be very comfortable and protective.
I am 5'5", with a 31" inseam, and they are a tad long on me with boots.
