Speed and Strength Women's Killer Queen Jeans
Too small in the knees
I figured I would go for it after reading the reviews and it didn't go well for me. I'm a size 2 (5'8'' 130 lbs) and I went up to a size 8. I couldn't get the jeans over my knees with the pads in so I took them out. I was able to get them on and put a belt on as it gaped in the waist. I didn't really mind that part. As soon as I got on the bike I could hardly straddle or get my knees bent enough. It ended up rubbing a hole in the back of my knee. I tried to make them work but too painful.

The Best flatter fit Jeans with Armor
I am right between a size 12 and 10 and armored pants usually fit to small at the waist or baggie at the hip. These are perfect! They look like fitted skinny jeans and are comfortable on either of my bikes, on the ZX10r they don't dig into my waist and doesn't slide down but stays snug all around my waist without the back sliding down, on the Phantom they are comfortable for long rides

Just like the reviews before me- I took the advice to buy a couple sizes larger, and the legs fit but the waist is much too large.
Also they're not a really flattering style for the booty.

Sizing is very small
Like most of the other reviews of these jeans.....believe it, they run small.]
I watched the revzilla how to size moto pants video, i measured myself and after reading the reviews I sized up and JUST fit in to the 12L.
Tight through thighs and butt, but loose at waist. Bend over and my crack makes an appearance.
If I didnt live in Australia, I'd probably return these and go up to a 14L, just for more comfort and better movement.
Height 182cm, Weight 72 kg, normally wear size 12 AU jeans

I really wanted these jeans to fit...I'm on my 3rd return (this pair and 2 sizes for another brand#. If you are curvy with a little - well a lot of junk in your trunk, don't even bother. I am normally a size 8 (given the material has some stretch), but I ordered a 12 and a 14 and neither one of them fit. A 16 or 18 might, but I'm not going to take any more chances...plus it just sounds crazy for me to be ordering an 18!

Small but cute
The fit is weird. I'm usually an 6-8, and had to get the size 10. The thighs and butt is tight but the waist is big. Nothing a belt can't fix, just makes trying to find your size hard. The only reason I'm keeping them is because the style is cute and the protection is great.

Fit's a little off but I kept them
I'm shopping for a bigger motorcycle and want some summer pants that have more protection than my regular jeans. I love the look of these. From the other reviews and from comments from Revzilla folks, I ordered two sizes up. It was a good choice.
Lately I've moved out of an 8T into a 10T (curvy cut) in Eddie Bauer jeans, and a 10 in Lee super straight jeans (so they only go to my ankle bone vs the floor). Menopausal widening or something. 5'9", 160 lbs, 32 inches to the floor, 30 to the malleolus, 23" circumference thighs, 14.5" calf, 17" from top of pant inseam to far end of knee.
There's a pretty good waist gap on the Killer Queens, but I have some thoughts about alteration, and until I get there, a belt solved that problem.
I found the thighs a little snug, but not as snug as the Rev'It Madisons. I thought the knees were articulating in a good place when I bent down in front of the mirror, but they don't really... my knees bend at the bottom of the articulation point, and on the bike even below that. Without the knee armor in, this isn't a huge issue. The armor felt comfortable bending around in the house, but I haven't had it in on the bike. I might end up altering the pocket for it if it's a problem.
I kept these over the Madisons because the rise is just a tad higher. When I bend into a tucked position, the jeans don't go to my butt crack (they do in the others). And I was looking at these two because they are slim in the calf and can tuck into my ever so awesome Elsinore boots.
I put a bunch of pictures of the Killer Queens and a few of the Madisons on Flickr. They won't load up here because most of them are portrait vs landscape. https://www.flickr.com/photos/74046857@N00/sets/72157654005985783
But I think this photo will load... on the bike I lust after. Too bad I have a kid in college and need a new furnace, otherwise I think I'd just get it. (also note that when I ride vs stand still in the lot, I do wear a very nice helmet-Arai Signet Q, and gloves). Ah, it won't... I'm on a Triumph Scrambler. oooo la la! It's over in the flickr ste.

No. Just no.
I desperately wanted these jeans. They have the style of the oh-so-sexy UglyBros jeans, but it looked like I could actually fit into these and it wouldn't break the bank (unlike UglyBros). Alas, I was horribly, horribly wrong. I'm not a really big girl, but I'm also not skinny. I wear a 10-12 in street jeans and I took my measurements and ordered a size 12 and a size 14 of these to try on at a local shop.
Going from the ankles up to my waist:
I love the skinny jean cut. They would have fit perfectly inside my Motolisa boots (definitely recommend those) and would have looked cute with the Wicked Garden armored sneakers. The knee protectors are great because they're external and the fit exactly where my knee hit. The thigh stitching is really cool and the pictures don't do it justice. But that's where it ended for me. The upper thighs, the crotch, and the rise were just too slim-cut for me. I usually have problems with too-tight waists on my pants, but the waist on these actually fit.
I love the style of these and the lure of external knee protectors was too good to pass up, but the cut was all wrong. Back to the drawing board.
