REV'IT! Women's Gear Pants
I'm 5''8 tall, and I usually wear size 6 or 28 in pants. I ordererd the size 38, and well, they are tight! At first, I could barely zip them, but once I got in them, they felt very confortable. To break them a little bit while I wear them in my house, I removed the Temperfoam® at hips and the waterproof membrane. I didn't wear them on the bike yet, but I'm sure they will work as a charm! The only downside on those pants: I wish it was tighter at the ankle so it could fit in my boots and not outside of them. Overall, I'm satisfied! Thanks RevZilla!

Love my new pants
The fit is small, but with the comments I read here, I bought the good size.

The fit and style are great.
My wife is a tiny woman and a small waist size can be hard to find. She is really pleased with these pants. Thank you Rev'it and Revzilla.

This product is fabulous!
These are great pants!
REVZILLA staff gave me good support. They answered all my emails to various issues ... Especially for greatness!
I looked good with pants protections for more than three years without success. I did not want pants to make the track but to drive on the street.
Whenever I could find one, or the length was not good, the size was too big ... Or protections could not in the right places or pants that just did not have protections!
But when I saw these pants leather / textile, and with many protections (hip, knee, etc.) I knew I had finally found it!
My pants size is usually 6 years and I is 5 '2 "and I ordered a 36. The size is perfect! Knee protectors come good on the knees. Size is a little tight but it fits after few minutes.
Different dissus that make up the pants are good. It is very comfortable. The leather is high quality textiles are well done and the seams are strong. They are well ventilated for hot days and when it's cold, the lining cuts the wind and cold.
There are two zippers .... A little in the middle of the back. And greater that goes around the waist. The zipper is attached to the mantle. If you do not have the REV'IT coat that goes with the pants, you can take the 2nd part of the zipper and sew on the mantle.
This is the first time I've pants where I feel safe because of the different protections (knees, hips, etc.) and where I feel so good!
I am so comfortable in these pants that I do not want to take them off! lol

Excellent riding pants!
It's been a long, frustrating search for the right pair of riding pants for me. I'm around 5'8", 148 pounds, with curves and muscle, so finding a pair of pants that my butt and thighs fit into comfortably was a bit of an issue. Either the pants fit too tight on my legs and butt and fit in the waist, or they were baggy as **** in the waist and fit my legs all right. These pants are juuust right. Great for canyon carving and general seat time.
They DO fit snugly, so do heed the advice of others. I went with the size recommended to me though (44), and I found that the pants fit snugly (comfortably so, though) on my legs and butt, without feeling like I'm crammed into the pants. (And, on a vain and/or comfort note, they don't smash your booty flat - a plus, I'd say). They do stretch a bit after riding them a couple hundred miles, and start to feel like a second set of thicker, warmer skin. They've kept me warm at 55 degrees easily, and I'm sure they would work in cooler weather as well; they're also comfortable with the liner out at around 80 degrees.
I can see these pants working for both thin and curvy women - I'm grateful that Rev'it! has produced a very functional pant with great features without sacrificing comfort and style.

Worth the wait
Straight out of the box, these babies are quality, from the creaminess of the leather to the high-tech feel of the mesh.Slip into the "engineered" protective skin and you can feel your confidence in your riding skils increase. Although Rev'it promotes the Gear pant as a perfect match for the Phoenix jacket, they look pretty darn hot with Ignition jacket, too.
One bit of advice: These pants need a couple of hours of saddle time to become broken in. My first ride in them lasted about an hour and when I took the pants off, my left knee had a red spot from the pad pressing against the skin. Ditto the inside of the back of my knee from the textile fabric pushing against the tender skin where my knee bends
Second time I wore them, though, I went out for about 5 hours and only felt an occasional irritation in the front/back of my knee.
By the time I got on my bike for my third ride, they felt like they had been custom made for me. Two hours later, they were so comfortable, I kind of hated to take them off.

mc pants that finally fit me
I am a small woman, and finding pants that fit properly is always a challenge. Nice to finally find a manufacturer who meets my needs! They are good looking, well made and I feel adequately protected. They could stand to be even better ventilated, as in the hottest weather (90 degrees +), I have to stand up on my foot pegs to feel the wind hit my legs. And, when I sweat a lot in them, the hip armor tends to bunch up after I take them off.. annoying, but by no means a deal breaker. All and all, great pants, and worth the price.

I wear a women's size 10 pant. Got these in a 12 long (euro 42), and they fit properly (I'm 5'7" w/a 32" inseam). Rev'it sizing was described as "european" and "slimmer" than "U.S." sizing, and I'd agree. I have slender legs, and these fit great.
To compare, I have a pair of Olympia mesh pants with a liner (can't remember model) in size 10, and they fit similarly around the waist/hips, but the legs are really wide.
One thing I have noticed (in the short time I've had them), is that the knee armor is quite tight against my knees. Presuming that's to be expected with a tighter fit in the legs, but am hoping it won't be a "pain in the knee" on longer trips.
