Speed and Strength Rage with the Machine Jeans
Comfortable pants, poor quality. Ripped seams after 2 rides.
These pants look great. Feel great. But not as great as I thought they would be. When I first got them I had to adjust the knee pads so they actually cover my knee. Knee pad placement feels loose and doesn't offer secure proaction where it's suppose to be.
They feel a bit snug. I where a 34-36 and the 36 feels like a 34-35.
The quality of the pants is what I dislike the most. After 2 rides the crotch inseams have started to come apart. Now theres an inch long whole in the crotch that will get bigger if I don't have it fixed. What else will come apart after 2 more rides? I feel these pants will get torn to shreds even if I have a small parking lot fall.
If you want pants for protection and breathability, don't get these pants. I'd go with textile.

I first ordered a 34 waist, then returned for a 36. I normally wear a 36. It was a little wishful thinking that a 34 would fit. Just a bit too snug. 36 fit perfect. I'm 6', 200lbs.
The 36x32 fit really nice right out of the bag. Soft, broken in denim. Stitching looks excellent. With my shoes on the length is perfect. Not too long, or short. The replacement pair included a hanger that you hang the pants on with the loops stitched on the inside of the pants. Nice little touch.
My only issue and it's not bad, but the knee pads sit a little low while standing. I imagine they'll be fine in riding position. The knee pads are slightly bulky, but you really can't tell when looking at them.
The color and weathered look of the denim is very nice.

Not Perfect but close enough
Im 6’2” 250lbs and wear a size 36X32 in all brands of jeans and pants. I did order a 38x32 based on other reviews, and they are right, these DO run about 1 size small in the waist. They are a little tight in the crotch. Length seems a hair long but that’s ok because on the bike your knees will be bent. Style wise they look great, and are comfortable for the most part. The Kevlar reinforcement, and CE rated knee armor look good, and fall in the right place standing, kneeling, and on the bike. The stretch panels work well, but are thick and inspire a protective feel. NOTE the none Kevlar reinforced areas are thinner denim than my regular jeans. They might have done this to save weight, and I'm all for that for summer riding, and to keep the flexibility. I do feel confident though because the stitching is all uniform, and in place. Over all I’m glad I bought these, and will buy them again. Thanks S&S, and thank you Revzilla for offering a great product at a reasonable price.

Good quality motorcycle jeans
Good riding jeans, comfortable, extra long length and reinforced on the rear cuff. Knee pads and kevlar in the right places. These jeans run a full size smaller than normal --- and time will tell if they last and provide adequate protection.

Comfortable and Well Built
I'm impressed. This is my first pair of riding jeans, so I'm still getting used to the looser fit in the thigh, knee, and calf. Waist and seat is comparable to straight (not loose-fit) jeans. Good fit though...true to the S&S size chart for me. I'm 5'7", 150 lbs with a 30" waist and 29" inseam. I got the 30x30 size, and it's just about right. Decent air flow. Stretches in all the right places. Nice added touches, like the leather hems/cuffs, and well-placed pockets. The knee pads and Kevlar panels seem to me to be well made, and confidence-inspiring.

Jeans or Riding pants?
Answer is both. Although they fit small, and i recomend ordering a size larger than you may be acoustumed, they still have that comfortable broke in jean feel. The armor in the knee although not major are better than just rolling with out and will help in the event ya take a dive. Knock on wood

Protection, style, and slim fitting.
To keep this short - they're great.
I'm a size 33 waist, and bought 34 x 32.
They do seem to be slightly snug. Maybe this is because the inseam I used is kinda "up there".
I like them, and plan on buying some with a longer inseam as I'm a little "gifted" - if you know what I mean :P

Run very small
I wear size 34 in Levi's but needed to return my original order for a size 36 in this product.
