Scorpion Women's Savannah II Pants
Great, versatile pants
I wore these non-stop on a two week trip through Tasmania and Victoria, Australia. On colder days, I wore them with the liners in (love the removable liner) and leggings underneath. On warm days, I took out the liner and left off the leggings and the air circulation was pretty good. They aren't very water proof, but that's fine. Velcro adjustments around the ankles are really convenient.
I find the corset styling on the side a bit dorky, but they are flattering in black and the belt loops are a huge perk. The loops alone are a good reason to opt for this pant over others. I'm 5'4" and 60kg, medium fit fine and left plenty of space for jeans underneath.
Luckily I havent had a chance to check the protection :) but the armor rests in all the right places.

fit and look great!
I have yet to take a spill in these (hopefully I never do) but they look and fit great. If you have a higher hip to waist ratio the pants will fit like a glove the liner won't but since I'm a summer rider that didn't matter to me.

Comfortable and stylish
These pants are really comfortable. I'm 5'9", size 29 waist and they fit good in length, but are a little loose around the quand and waist areas. I didn't bother returning them for a samller size cuz I don't mind the looser fit so I can wear pants underneath or just for a non restricting fit feeling while riding. I haven't rode through rain yet with them so I don't know how waterproof they are, but so far so good!

Love the Yellow/Black
I bought these in a size medium and wear them religiously. I love they are machine washable given the white gets dirty a lot easier. The fit a little big as I am 5'5" and weigh 135lbs. I am also curveless and buttless so this may lead to the fit as well. Love the belt feature as many of the protective pants do not offer this. Not to mention love the adjustable straps on the legs so that you can wear your layers under for cold weather riding. Got the jacket at the same time!! yellow bike, yellow gear! you can see me a mile away. ALWAYS getting compliments on this gear when I gas up.

Love these pants, but they do fit a lil snug especially if your wearing thicker pants underneath. I'm 5'10 and got the XL for the length also for the wiggle room in the leg. But I do have to wear a belt with them. The remove able rain pant is a bonus with these pants. Overall very happy.

Of course, like most womens mtc gear, it runs small. These pants are also cut LOW, so I need to wear a belt to hold these up over my crack. I wear a 12/14 pants and fit into the XXL and they are just a little snug, but comfortable. Once on the bike, I immediately forgot about the bulk and just felt like nice, windproof pants. I wouldn't wear them around if not on the bike, as I feel like I'm wearing a skidoo suit. But for longer, colder rides these are good.

Best Woman's textile riding pants
I bought these pants for 3-season riding and am very happy with them. The quality, safety features, and style are in line with the price. I have another pair with more mesh which gives me better airflow in the heat but I don't feel as protected. The Savannah II are a great compromise. Only complaint is they don't zipper into my jacket. I ordered a large. I'm 5'6", 150lbs and have a bubble butt and muscular legs. The waist gaps in the back. The length is perfect. I also really like the deep front pockets. I thought they'd be shallow (worthless) from the pics but I can easily fit my smartphone in one pocket and lip gloss in the other.

Most flattering textile pants
These Scorpion pants are great. I also have the first Savannah pants and I think the Savannah II fit even better. 1 difference is the II has Velcro with a slip clasp vs a button at the waist. I love the way they look, the fit feels and looks good. Zip out the liner and good air flow. A lot of protection. Padded knees and hips. The II also has good deep front pockets. I hope Scorpion continues this Savannah design because I will continue to buy and wear them. Best riding pants!!!
