Speed and Strength Rust and Redemption Jeans
The Fit is terrible
The fit of these jeans make absolutely no sense. I'm 6'3, 190 pounds and I ordered the 34 x 34. The waist fits fine, but the thighs are so tight the elastic in the kness and seat are at full stretch before I even attempted to sit down or curl my leg. Speaking of which the area behind the knee is straight painful when you attempt to bend the knee. These jeans sure look cool, but comfort comes first. I'm thinking about trying the 36 waist but I'll probably have the opposite problem.

I was on the hunt for a pair of jeans like these for months! - kevlar, comfortable for daily use, and STYLISH! I have another pair of jeans which are a straight cut, and very neat, but let's be honest, skinny is the now! The video provided was exceptionally accurate, and helped me make my decision (as I don't get free postage and face the ever growing challenge of our Aussie dollars) so it was a risk to say the least, but I'm ecstatic with the final product! Included removable knee pads are also a huge benefit - gives you the choice of daily comfort or a more spirited ride in summer. Thanks Revzilla!

Great looking pants, constantly getting compliments on them.
The stretch waist is well thought out.
Not for people with thick thighs.

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.
