Speed and Strength Rust and Redemption Jeans
Knee Armor very unconfortable
I bought these jeans because I wanted something to take to my work and that would offer some protection without having to change once I get to my destination. I have to say that the looks of these Jeans are pretty good and I have got complements for it, one thing that I must say is that the knee armor is very uncomfortable if you are sitting and after 3 hours I had to take it out because it was just too annoying, I think the same would hold true for long rides, I wish it had some extra padding.
I don't have particularly wide tights so it fits me fairly good, however if you have wider legs it might not fit comfortably
the overall built of the jean is good, however I seem to have got a defective jean and there is some threading coming off from the zipper area. I have already contacted customer support and see if there is something that can be done.

great pair of riding jeans
I wear skinny jeans so i wanted something a little tighter fitting than some of the other brands and this hit the mark. True to size. They look great and comfortable.

love the pants
the pants are great. i didn't pay much attention to the reviews and wish i did in terms of fitment. if you have big or muscular legs, these pants will not be comfortable. they're fit for slim guys. i had to remove the knee pads for a better fit, but it's still tight around the knee and calf area.
will always do business with revzilla though. great company, fast shipping.

Stylish without pretense
Just picked this jeans up, and I have to say that they are super comfortable and a heck of a lot more stylish than the other pair of riding jeans I have (Scorpion Covert). They look like a pair of straight leg jeans, to me. Some say they look more like "skinny" jeans, but I would differ as I'm not super skinny and I still have room to shift the pant legs around. The amount of Kevlar isn't the most I've seen, but it covers the areas more likely to scrape very well. The outer access to the knee armor alone is a deal sealer for me. Some people have complained that the waist leaves too much room compared to the "thinner" legs, and I think that that is a deliberate choice from S&S to allow more room when sitting on the bike (especially a sport bike) I've attached a picture of me wearing them along with the S&S Dogs of War jacket... I'm really digging this season's getup.. Honestly, it feels like I'm wearing my normal style of clothing without having to worry about getting mangled in a slide. What else could one want?

These jeans are exactly what I expected. I think they are actually pretty good for the price point. I normally wear a 31x30 and that's what I ordered. The waste gives me plenty of room to tuck something in and the belt loops are a good size. The pockets are nice and deep, as well. The accordion panels on the knees and around the rear hips are great and give a ton of flex. The protection pads are a little hassle to take in and out but not bad. And, the knee pads definitely rub on my knee caps after too much walking around, but overall they are comfortable to ride in and definitely look the part. If you're looking for something to blend in when you're off-bike, these won't work. The color is a genuine denim-blue as it appears in the video.

Stylish, good value, not too comfortable
First of all, these are good looking jeans and I get plenty of compliments on them. They do fit very snugly and if you have muscular thighs they will be skin tight. That in itself is not a problem, except that they are also tight around the knees and the knee armor causes quite a bit of discomfort when off the bike. I'm hoping this will lessen over time.

Not a comfortable product but great style.
I ordered 32 waist while I usually wear 30 but it's still not comfortable at the calf and knee area. The knee protection armor keeps hurting the lower leg portion during normal walk. The jeans is comfortable for riding and looks great but doesn't have enough protection at the hip area.

Painful to wear
Extremely painful behind your knee. When I went and sat on my bike with them it was just terrible. With the pads out, it's no big deal, they feel fine. But with the knee pads in, they just really hurt the back of your leg there. I couldn't wear them for 20 minutes.
I'm 6' tall, I weigh 180 lbs- somewhere between average and slim. I normally wear 33W 32L pants, I ordered 34x32. Still too tight in the waist. Pockets were useless because of how tight they were. I wear skinny jenny jeans, and even by skinny jeans standards, these pants were small. Where most skinny jeans' material will stretch a little for comfort, these don't stretch at all- except the actual stretch panels of course.
If it weren't for the stretch panels, there is no way you'd even be able to sit down in these. But honestly, because they are there, this isn't a really an issue. In the end, my only complaint is the intense discomfort on the back of my knees.
