Speed and Strength Rust and Redemption Jeans
Awesome riding jeans
I read prior reviews about these jeans fitting tight to those who ordered true to their size. I however have this issue with thicker upper legs. I'm 5'10 and 195lbs and athletic with an issue fitting into normal sized jeans. I opted for my regular size 32x30 and they fit perfect. Plenty of leg room and fit comfortably. My only issue which I'm not sure if its personal or not is that I felt they were tight to the sides and hip area when actually sitting on the bike. No issues wearing casually and walking around (which I highly recommend, Ive gotten many compliments). But I did feel tight up top when sitting and having the bike between my legs and at stops. I went from normally having both feet down to one foot on the back break and on foot on the pavement. Most may yeah "thats what you need to do", but we all know that we would like to have the option. Otherwise it provides protection, great materials & look with removable knee pads.

Nice looking pants, fit is a little strange
I just got these but haven't ridden in them (weather is awful). But I wanted to comment on fit. I normally wear a 38x30 Levi's 501 size, though I'm sort of in between that and a 36 (501s are tight in the thighs on me). I ordered these pants in 38 and they were way too big on me. Another reviewer mentioned this too - the waist in particular was absurdly large. I returned for a 36X30 and the legs/seat fit great, but the waist is still slightly large and I will be wearing a belt. I can't go any smaller on the leg fit, but I'd guess I have an extra inch or more on the waist as it is. Otherwise, they are comfy and look like they'll be good riding jeans. I love the overall cut/style.

Worth EVERY CENT
First of all, the fit is spot on with normal jeans. I am usually a 30x32 size (I am 6 ft tall and almost 150 lbs) and the jeans fit me like a glove. They are not skinny jeans but rather slim straight, making them look elegant and not let the armor protrude out too much.
The color is a slightly dark wash blue (which I like) and though at first I was thinking of getting riding jeans that looked like completely normal jeans, I am happy I embraced the fact that they scream motorcycle (I'd even say they look fashionable without making me look like a power ranger). I have received multiple compliments of them and they go well with almost anything.
The comfort is really good. Putting them only slightly bothersome because the armor gets your feet stuck by accident sometimes when throwing your legs in, but no big deal. Once you have them on, they feel like any other jeans and aren't heavy. A lot of people complain about the armor, but i while it is uncomfortable and rubs against your skin at first, if you let them break in for a week and then find the sweet spot of where to position the pads, you don't feel them at all, no kidding.
I love the stretch panels; they really improve my range of motion - not just when riding, but just in daily activities. Their durability was actually tested when I fell on a slow speed fall (on gravel). They are completely unscathed - no scratches and I was completely unhurt. The thick kevlar definitely did its job. Lastly, they aren't too warm when the weather gets hot, and they definitely break some wind when riding in colder climates. In other words, they are great for most weather conditions.
For the money, they are an incredible investment and they were WORTH EVERY CENT.

Great protection, questionable style.
I had to send these back, as my size was too small in the legs for my waist. I got a size bigger, but now the waist requires major beltage. The D30 armor is nice. Wish they had installed tailbone protection. The styling is way too Euro for me, which will be more Euro than most Americans can handle. The cut and construction are fine, but the pointless pocket embroidery make them look like old Jordache jeans. The first pair I got were egregiously acid washed in the thighs. The second pair, were more uniform in color. Basically, these are the cheapest, high-quality armor moto jean I could find that weren't fat-hiphop-stunter style.

Good style and good protection
I was looking for a pair of pants that I can wear around when I dismount from the bike and not look like an alien. These pants have food protection are slim and comfortable. I recommend to wash them the first time as they will feel and fit even better.

Great fit, affordable yet looking good
I've been shopping for a pair of slim fit motorcycle jeans for awhile but they usually cost way more than I'm willing to pay (uglubro, revit...etc)
After viewing many people's comment about these jeans being too tight I think they would be a good fit for me, I'm 6' 185lb slim built and I usually wear Jean size 34 with some room on the waist area
Got the jeans and just as expected, fit like gloves and I can say they have exceed my expectations an American company that could make a stylish slim cut jeans other than a baggy grandpa motorcycle jeans, material feels good and the pad stay in place and secure.
Only complain I have is the denim is little rough and can be soften up a bit, I guess they'd eventually feel more comfortable once they are broken in.

They look good, fit well (on the snug side but still fit), and are good quality for the most party. The problem is the mesh in the knees around the knee armor is cut much larger than it needs to be and is left dangling inside the leg so it gets bunched up between the pant and my skin. Because of the snug fit, there's no way to get in there and pull it flat or adjust it. This makes wearing the jeans very uncomfortable. Attention to details is important!

Too small behind the knees with armor to be useable
I picked these up knowing that they might feel skinny. They are simply too tight behind the knee and in the calves to be worn let alone on a motorcycle with the armor in. The main selling point was the armor in them and I wanted a fitted fit. I can't even bend my knees...
I am 155 lbs, 6ft, lanky with a distance runner build AKA the exact person that should be able to fit into skinnier jeans.
If you are able to fit in yours you'll be pleased. The waist and inseam fits true. The protection looks solid and felt good.
Overall I can't recommend it because it probably won't fit you.
