Sizes are not even close but they're still nice pants.
My size: 5'4", 28W x 28H, and 145lbs.
According to the sizing chart, the XS would have fit me perfectly. Upon receiving them, I found out they were way too small. I couldn't even get them past my thighs. I effortlessly exchanged them for some smalls which fit better but are still a bit tight in certain areas.
The inseam and waist are spot on but the thighs and calves are a little on the tight side (you can free up some calf space by removing the shin guards). I just naturally have larger calves and thighs. I wore them on a couple rides and around the house and I can tell they're going from tight to snug. I won't doubt that they will stretch a little more until they're just right.
All around a good set of riding pants.

Nice Pants, but watch the sizing!!!
Alright, I was only able to find one on line review of these pants, and the dude who was "modeling" them seemed more interested in modeling himself, than the pants. So I was left to read a few other reviews from various places. Sizing always seems to have come up as an issue in every review I found.
Honestly, I found the sizing on these to be WAY off. I normally wear a size 34 jeans (maybe a 35 if I've been slacking off and hitting the cookies a bit more than the gym), so I heeded the warnings I'd read about and ordered the EU 54. Its also worth mentioning that I've been an avid cyclist all my life and my quads are bigger than normal, but I'm not some sort of frog man. I'm 6' tall and I weigh 195lbs.
I took delivery of the 54's and they were way too small around the legs. (That's the entire leg including my calf's.) I couldn't get them all the way on without them immediately falling down. I sent them back and got the 56's (!), which do fit, but I had to modify them by removing the unnecessary padding that covers the upper quad area. That seems to have made them very comfortable.
So the moral is, if you have any leg strength at all, make sure you move up at least two EU sizes on their chart. If you do, you should be happy with these pants. between the 54's and the 56's, they seem to have the exact same length, so that shouldn't be an issue. Aside from the sizing inaccuracy, these are really nicely made, and should last quite a while. I wore them on a short ride last night, and they were really comfortable.

Functional, good protection, very good ventilation.
Rather comfortable for this type of gear, very good ventilation, suitable for hot summer use but gets hot when traffic is not moving (which is expected). Good overall protection. Nice combo with Stage jacket for street use.

Eugene S:The leather is actually fairly soft and the normal thickness you would find on any suit or pants. I think it is 1.2 millimeters, which is sufficient. One thing i can say for sure is that i rode while wearing these pants all through NY summer which hot and humid.. with NO discomfort.Nov 22, 2011
RevZilla:We would have to say no. Typically, track organizations require either a 1 or 2 piece leather suit. To be 100% certain, we recommend contacting your local track organization for additional information/rules and regulations.Dec 10, 2012
A shopper asked:I am considering buying these pants, either the textile or the leather/textile version, havent decided that yet. But i can understand there are problems with the sizing chart, i normally wear a 50 size euro in pants, and am 174 cm tall. People say that you should order 2 sizes above your usual, but would you say that it would still fit the height? As i am not that tall, i am a bit concerned about this.Mar 19, 2014
A shopper asked:Hi, my waist is around 35'' and according to the sizing chart I should get size 52, but I am 5' 8" tall so I am wondering if 52 would be too long for me. My main concern is about protection, because I don't want the knee guards to be places below my knees :) So what is your advice? Thanks!Nov 30, 2013
