Alpinestars A-10 Air-Flo Pants
The first pair i ordered where way too small bc i have long legs. but with a simple and easy return i got the new ones and love them! they fit snug with enough room i wear basketball shorts underneath and i sure i could (tightly) wear jeans. I love the knee and shin armor and the hip, thigh, and buttox armor could be thicker but i trust it! they look dang nice and do not ride up and crush the family jewels if you know what i mean. The air flow isnt great but i have yet to sweat and over heat while riding in them. Sitting still gets a little hot but thats expected.

Solid summer riding pants
Great option in lieu of leathers for summer time in Florida and a perfect match to the Air Flow Jacket. Great protection and very comfortable riding positions on my Panigale and Diavel. Sizing: I am 5'11, 190lbs, 36 waist, 44 chest, I ordered a size 54 and the fit is absolutley perfect. My only concern is the attachment zipper for the jacket is a standard clothing (small and does not feel rugged) size so I hope it holds up..

Highly ventilated, all textile pants ready for knee pucks, but the fit could be better.
They're the only high airflow, all textile pants that come set up for knee pucks, but the loose waist and wimpy jacket-attachment zipper make me fear getting caught with my pants down.
These pants are very comfortable. I'm actually planning on doing a 900 mile weekend trip in them. However, part of what makes them comfortable is that the elasticated waist is quite loose, so much so that they slide down while walking if my jacket isn't zipped into them. And there is no waist adjustment. I had to go with a size 54 because of my height (6'3"). Any size smaller and my bare legs would be showing out of my boot while in riding position, and any size larger I'd be able to fit a pillion in the waist with me.
I wish I could be reassured by the jacket-attachment zipper, and it does hold the pants up just fine, but in a crash I'm afraid the wimpy little teeth would give way and I'd grind my behind across the asphalt.
The thighs, knees, and lower legs fit nice and snug, and although I haven't had the pleasure of dragging knee in them, I'm confident that a puck will stay in place during more aggressive riding.

Good summer pant
Wanted some decent lower protection for hot summer mountain riding. The A-10 Air-Flo's draft a lot of air when moving, and seem fine up to about 85F, but do get hot when just standing around. Seem to have decent protection but light compared to the GP-Plus leather or Track pant. Go 1-2 sizes larger compared to your normal pant. I'm 6'2" 175lbs, 32/33 waist with a 35" inseam and the EUR 52 - USA 36 fit snug and a little short. Knee pads feel fine and the pant material does not feel slippery on a stock R1 seat.

Overall Great Pants
I'm 6' & 170lbs with a slender build and a traditional jeans size of 32. I started with the 50s and they were too short in the upper leg such that the kneepad was very constricting. I moved up to the 52s and I could tell that they were noticeably larger. The waist was still fine, probably a bit more comfortable than the 50s and the leg length was good. I think the kneepads will take some getting used to, but I did 150mi right out of the box with these. Airflow was great, zip into the jacket is a nice feature, and I feel very well protected with the padding. Overall, I'd recommend the pants, but sizing is key.

i wear these pants with the tgpr air textile jacket from alpine stars. it zips onto the jacket and creates a full suit. the pants are kind of a pain to get on and take off. at first they will feel extremely tight around the calfs. i was on the verge of returning them because my calfs were so uncomfortable(and i have small calfs too). i decided to call revzilla and they said they are supposed to be that way..(i guess). i kept them and they have definitely gotten better as they broke in. now they are pretty comfortable. the giant knee protection is something to get used to for sure. after about 3 wears i was used to it. and after that, you will most likely figure out a method to easily get them on and take them off.
great protection, lots of padding. not so great on air flow though..the only air i feel going through is on the little mesh section above the knee.

Great product for any rider
I bought this product a few weeks ago and first of all I want to comment on how quickly I received the pants... 2 days after I placed my order they were sitting at my door. :)
These pants fit slightly tight (which is what you want in a riding pant).
They have a ton of protective padding in the hip/thigh/knee/shin areas...
You can easily add knee pucks if you're a knee-dragging rider.
Alpinestars made these pants perfectly for someone who wants to ride hard, yet have a lot of comfort and ventilation.
GREAT PRODUCT - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
