Speed and Strength Dogs Of War Pants
Comfortable without being too baggy
I'm 5'5" tall and baggy jeans make me look even smaller. These jeans are comfortable without being to baggy. I have athletic legs and I still fit in these jeans very well. I'll probably get my 32"x30" jeans hemmed for length and I'll see if the taylor can install some pockets to fit hip armor from my bmw summer pants. That's the only thing I would like S&S to update on these pants. They need a little hip armor. I've heard complaints about the stitching in the back of the knees but I don't have any problems with that. They feel fine. I'm happy with them!!

If you want looks, here it is!
Looks absolutely fantastic on my 115lb skinnyass. This particular pair of jeans runs quite slim so if you're a big guy don't waste your time. Great looks but that's about it. No ankle adjustors and the seams irritate my skin, especially the back of the knee, but otherwise no complaints besides the huge price sticker. No booty armor, just kneepads but the knee pads actually make the pants look even better. Almost a punk-military style. Comfort and features are where this product is lacking.

Pretty good and comfortable
I have been looking for some options outside of kevlar jeans for protection around town.
These pants seem to have protection where it counts. If you look inside of them, they seem to have the kevlar lining around the glute/hips area with ce knee pads. I would have to take a closer look at the rest of the internals to really say for sure.
The pants are comfortable with a straight leg fit that is a little tighter in the calves than normal. I like it since nothing flaps around while riding.
These pants seem to breath 100x better than kevlar jeans though. In the summer, wearing the scorpion jeans was unbearable for myself. I would be swamping pretty hard around the legs.
I like these pants.

SO BLAND! Yuk.
I was worried that these would look a little too hardcore. I had the opposite issue. I read reviews that said they looked boring, so I thought, well they probably aren't boring, but at least someone doesn't think they are too intense...
These pants look styled in the picture, but they aren't. I put them on and instantly regretted the buy.
They were comfortable. The stretch panels are very nice, they make up for a slight difference in fit.

Fit is all wrong, color and style is bland
I ordered a 32 waist for these pants and it fits like a 34-36. The legs fit nice and snug slightly slim (exactly what I was looking for) but then it comes up to this big bowl like upper area with an oversized waist. I can't even add layers underneath like armor or cold weather gear to fill in the space because the legs don't have any room! Also The color and style is a lot less robust than it looks in the pictures, these pants are light olive drab. I wouldn't recomend because with the sizing on these pants especially with this company it's really a hit or miss when ordering by mail. I love revzilla for all my motorcycle gear, but for pants you really need to go to a shop and try them on.

Great design, poor execution
I was excited to find these pants, as I'd spent a while searching for pants of this sort: not jeans, not technicals, but with a bit of extra flavour for everyday as well as longer riding. Overall, I like them, especially the unique design, but feel I'll need to have some professional sewing on them to bring them up to the quality I want. Great design, sub-par quality of make.
Features I like:
- Elastic sections
- Comfortable as all...
- Olive Green actually quite dark
- Removing armour from the outside makes it ultra-easy for everyday riding and then walking and then riding, and kevlar lining looks well-done.
- Sizing-wise was perfect, fitting exact expectations.
Features I dislike:
- Very bad quality pocket studs, one pocket begun to tear around the stud on first wear despite nothing being put in it. Rear pockets won't hold closed at all, just because the studs are absolute rubbish. (Besides, aren't studs supposed to be an extra liability in a putative crash?)
- Only single button at top on waist (no behind-the-scenes fastener button)
Overall, love the pants, was especially surprised as to just how bad the studs quality of make and affixation was though.

Good Pants, Color isn't Olive/Green
First off, if you are looking for green pants like in the video images, these are not the ones. I got mine, and while they have hints of green (hidden color gems in the flexible areas), and the inside is green (so my manly bits can see its green), the outside is almost black. Says olive on options, I didn't know that meant black olive? No idea who is in control of color at the makers company, but they need to get their eyes checked. If this is green, my poo must be tie dye.
Anyways, these are great pants for the price. The removable knee protection means when you get somewhere and need to walk around you can take that out and be comfortable. I think they are a nice fit too, not all hipster tight, and not all "dad jeans" boot cut either.
The weight is fairly light, so these will be good in hot weather, like where I ride my motorcycle transportation machine. The length was fine for me, I am 5'11" (180cm) and I went with the 36 waist regular, which matches how I would usually buy pants (weight 185 lbs). I found the legs are fine in the thighs as well. I don't have hulkamania thunder thighs, but I am also not chicken little legs. My thighs are a little larger than average I assume (that's what she said). Basically, if you don't have mutant thighs I assume you should be ok.
Good price, seems like decent protection, not as burly as my kevlar jeans. But also half the price and much lighter weight. I assume in a fall/slide these motorcycle performance slacks should save your man bits and still leave you some meat on the backside so as to not interrupt your twerkathon days. Hopefully I won't need to test em out...

Full featured riding pant
After looking at many different brands especially BMW's City 2 pant I decided on the Dogs of War pant and I'm very happy I did. The pants fit just like jeans and I ordered my normal size, the fit and quality are outstanding, best part they are half the cost of the BMW pant. The feel is relaxed with a slimmer design and although I just received them and haven't ridden in them yet I can tell they will be very comfortable on the bike especially in cooler weather. Overall the pants are a good value and offer good riding protection.
