Teknic Women's Venom Leather Pants
Fits too small
I'm 5'7 125lbs and usually wear size 4-6. I ordered a sz 8 and it was one size too small. I suggest go up two sizes.

Good casual leathers
I was in the market for a 2 piece suit, for street riding. Being a female the selections are usually pretty slim. The Venom is adequate for some spirited street riding and I even commute in them as an overpant. The ventilation is just right for most riding in Southern-Calif. The armor is definitely the low point, I was surprised there was no hip protector given it's a ladies pant, however the other armor is more than up to the task for canyon carving once one is used. I find them comfortable enough to walk around it for short periods but by no means would I recommend walking around in them all day. I commute in these and usually remove them when I reach my destination. I wouldn't say this is adequate for serious track riding, as the zip together is more of a novelty than a replacement for a one piece suit with accordion panel. If all you're looking for is a good weekend riding suit pants, and like to canyon carve these are good. I'm a 12 US @ 6' 180lbs and bought one size up based on recommendation, which was useful advice as it runs on the petite side of sizing, as I need a more generous cut in my thighs/seat.

Great Value. Fits small
I bought this for my girlfriend after getting her the jacket. After speaking with the customer service rep, we decided on a size 14. She normally wears a size 7 or 8 in jeans. She is 5'5", ~150#. I had my doubts... They arrived within 5 business days and the pants fit great and she says they are very comfortable. We don't have a lot of miles on them and the riding season is coming to a close but I will add another review if there are problems as the miles pile up. Overall very happy with the purchase.

Make sure you order at least 2 sizes larger than you wear.
Fit is small but baggy in the butt. Very comfortable. Very airy too. Not for cold weather. Great knee protection.

It is a steal at this price
The ankels are a bit tight, but I have huge ankles. Cant beat the price and is great quality.

Good quality and features at a great price!
These are very nice pants for the price! I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and comfort right out of the box. They have held up very well this season and the perforations really make a difference when riding in hot weather. I did add hip pads for extra protection. They run small! I am 5'1" with a 30" inseam and normally wear a size 6 but had to order a size 10. The 8 fit but the rise was too short to sit comfortably on the bike. I bought the jacket too (size 8) to make a great two piece suit for street riding and my days at the local short track/road course.

The first pair I ordered were way too small ( my error). I exchanged them for 2 sizes up and they fit much better, so I'd recommend ordering at least a size up from what you would typically order. Great protection all around. I'm not thrilled with how they feel once zipped into the matching jacket but that's minor. I trust that if I went down in these, it would do a good job of keeping my skin off the asphalt and on my legs. I'm not too familiar with how leather pants are typically supposed to fit but the seat of the pants didn't thrill me (I'm 5'6 141lbs average build) although not to the point that I'd return them. Decent product, glad I ordered them despite the minor imperfections( in my personal opinion).
