Speed and Strength Rage with the Machine Jeans
Run very small
I wear size 34 in Levi's but needed to return my original order for a size 36 in this product.

A nice pair of jeans
The knee protectors are small and will probably not cover all the area if you go down but it's better than nothing. There are generous spreads of Kevler in high impact areas which is also good. They're a baggy/relaxed fit and look really good with some nice touches throughout. If you're looking for something not too expensive to offer you better protection than your regular pair of denims while on the bike, this is it.

Everything I expected
True fit not too baggy. Love that the armor is removable and it fits well in the pant. The stretch panels on the legs work well to allow expansion when on the bike. The reinforced heel is nice to protect the pant if it over hangs your boot. The single button on the rear pocket keeps your wallet safe and worry free. I am very pleased with these pants I would buy another pair.

Great comfortable jeans
This is my first pair of motorcycle jeans. I purchased these to replace my overpants. I was tired of looking like storm trooper.
I'm 5'10'' 165 ibs. Ordered 34 x 34. They are long for me, which I expected, Although when on my bike they fit perfect, and the knee pads are where they should be. I normally wear 34 x 32. They are a bit baggy, that would me my only complaint. Other than that I'm very happy with them.

The Comfort Of Jeans With Added Protection
These jeans are very comfortable.
6'2 190lbs. People complained about then being baggy but I found them to be perfect. Other riding jeans I've have were tight around the legs and I could barely get my hands in the pockets. But not with these guys. The added armor is great too, only requires minor adjustment if you tend to ride with your knees tightly hugging the tank. But since they are freely movable you can adjust while riding. The stretch knees are great also, being tall I was always adjusting my jeans at stop lights etc.. But these were great, look good on and off the bike.

Definitely worth the money
These have a very nice, soft feel to the denim. Very comfortable on the bike, although the knee armor is of course a bit annoying walking around, if only because it's obvious that it's there and I feel like a dork wearing them while not on the bike. The armor pads are secured with strips of velcro stitched onto the rubber pads and inside the knee pockets. The armor cannot be removed while wearing the jeans, as the pockets are only accessible through the inside of each leg. They're extremely comfortable without the knee pads to wear off the bike, and they look quite nice as well. I imagine they'll be nice in the winter off the bike - the Kevlar will add a nice bit of extra insulation.
I usually wear 33" waist relaxed fit Nautica brand jeans, which have probably an inch of extra material at waist level. I have a 34" waist measured where my jeans sit ~2.5" below my navel. These jeans in a 34" waist fit almost exactly the same as my Nautica jeans, so they're pretty much true to size for relaxed cut pants. My fat butt certainly wouldn't fit in them if they were anywhere near skinny jeans.
My only real complaint is a relatively minor (but also occasionally annoying) quality control issue - mine came with the denim that the front pocket is sewn to partially shredded inside the pocket. This means that the pocket is not attached completely across the front (roughly the center third of the inner front pocket isn't securely sewn together), and my hand/other objects occasionally get snagged on the loose threads inside the pocket.
They still get the thumbs up from me, despite the torn denim in the pocket. They're very good for the price, and I'll probably be buying my next set of riding jeans from Speed and Strength as well.

I'm still young enough to want a stylish pant. I was looking for something to take on trips with me that I could be a little more casual while just out kicking around to give my full gear a break (going out to eat and hiking waterfall trails still feels funny in full gear). These looked like they would fit the bill. Fit was good, the inseam was long enough to ride well on the bike (a little long walking around). I like the knee protection, but like others have noted, the pads tend to ride to the inside of the knee a little too much. Though you can't tell they have knee pads in them, I ended up pulling the pads out unless I plan on more agressive riding. Fit is comfortable though, even long 400 mile days were nice. Quality and details are top notch. If you enjoy a Thursday night ride to the local hangout and want to look good standing around while have some protection getting there and back, place your order.
