Scorpion Deuce Pants
Comfy, Good Size, Needs More Armour?
I ordered these in a small, after reading reviews and seeing that a S was roughly 30-32" waist. I'm 6', ~150#, and my waist is ~29". I was originally hoping to get a small size and just wear these as regular pants, so that they were tight, but it turns out I actually got the best of both worlds.
Now, these aren't racing pants, but when you slip your legs in bare the liner is very comfy and smooth. However, I can also wear jeans underneath no problem. The hip armour is alright, just the regular CE foam pads. There's no tailbone/bum armour. Then there's the knee pads, also average. I will wear strap-on knee pads, as there is room to.
The finish is very nice, doesn't look slapdash, feels nice, and has cool raised Scorpion "S" logo's. The liner is completely removable if it's too hot. Overall, I'm satisfied. I would just wear these with armoured shorts and kneepads, personally. Something like the Dianese Hard Shorts would fit fairly well, in my case, especially for the tailbone protection.

Exactly what I was looking for.
These pants are nice. Better than my last pair of klim dakars. I will definitely stick with scorpion for the rest of my riding gear.

A great buy and have to be better than kevlar jeans.
Buy one size larger if you want to wear these over jeans, etc. I am 6ft, 165 pounds. I normally wear a 32 waist but purchased size large. I was pleased to see that there was enough adjustment in the waist so I can wear these without jeans as well.
The build quality is excellent and they should provide decent protection.

Excellent pants for warm/variable weather
These pants provide good protection while keeping you cool. Lots of mesh on the quads for airflow, large armor pieces in the knees (which are adjustable - nice touch), legs unzip all the way for easy on/off over jeans. Liner is decent for water protection and cutting airflow for cooler days. Waist is comfortable and adjustable. Might want to size up, I found the waist a bit tight when wearing pants under these. Hip armor is a bit lacking but not enough to be detrimental to the overall product.

Pro's and con's
I am 5'10" and 195 lbs. semi-athletic. These pants are well made in my opinion. Looks are great. I wear a 34-35 waist in jeans and ordered the XL. They fit snug over my jeans.
Button fly stays closed. Zippers seem a bit cheap.
Now the not so good points. The knee armor could be a bit higher for me but still somewhat covers my knee. Most is over my shin area, even when riding as I have a more upright bike. There is additional padding built into the pants themselves. Not much coverage at the sides of the knees.
The hip pads are small and do not cover too much either. But both are excellent thickness and would hold up in a crash.
Pants are a bit bulky over jeans but I would think any over pants would be. Overall for the price compared to similar items I would rate it an 8. I was going to return them but these fit well over jeans which I have a problem with ordering online usually and I like the looks of them.

Protection & Air Conditioning!
I purposely waited a few months after my purchase before writing this review. Best bang for the buck and great fit and comfort as well. I'm 5-10, 185, a 36+ waist and the XL size I purchased fits perfect and length too. A bit long standing, but on the bike, perfect, which is what you want! My 3 season pants for sure, and they fit easily over a pair of jeans. Ventilation is superior to any of the previous 3 pairs of "vented" pants I have owned. Watch the Revzilla product video on these Scorpion Deuce pants - it will answer all your questions. Then place an order quickly!

Works for women too!
I'm 5'4" 110 pounds and wanted something that offered protection, air flow, had a plentiful inseam, and zipped all the way up the leg to the hip for easy off. Could not find a womens pair of pants that had all those features so after much research took a chance on these. I love them! I can adjust the waist in with the velcro tabs and there is plenty of room with shorts or jeans on underneath and they don't look huge on me. I didn't even have to adjust the knee armor. I wore them yesterday in a 100 degree day and was fine. I ordered the mens small. The only thing I would have liked was the option to order in off white to reflect a little more of the Arizona sun. Four pockets which is great! Womens pants seldom offer this and the length is perfect when riding. Womens pants are never long enough. I recommend them to men AND women! Revzilla ships FAST! Thanks!

Holds up well in a crash
I had two 50 mph lowsides in these pants (once on the left side, once on the right). I slid on my hips/butt for the entire slide both times, and these pants held up perfectly fine (no injuries sustained). They are a little scuffed up, and have a few tears near the calf area (I think the peg did that) but are still usable. I like the feature where the zipper goes up the entire side of the leg, it makes getting in and out a very simple affair. The waterproof liner is a joke (doesn't keep out water at all). Overall not a bad purchase considering I got two crashes out of them!
