Scorpion Women's Savannah Pants
Not designed by a rider
Quite disappointed in these pants. They definitely weren't designed by someone who actually rides a bike! I bought a size larger than I normally wear because of what I read in other reviews, but they still don't fit well. I am a fit, athletic 130# woman at 5'5". The thighs are slightly tight (definitely no need for the cinch straps on the sides of the pants). The waist is terribly large, and the zipper doesn't stay up. Length is good, but the buckles at the bottom don't do much and are more for looks. Because of the cut of these, it is hard to lift your leg to swing it over the bike. Once on the bike I have to adjust the placement of the knee guard in the pant so that my knee will bend comfortably. I only bought them because they have a wind proof liner, which I must say works really well. I've worn them in 33 degree temps with a pair of fleece leggings under and haven't been the slightest bit chilly. I also ride motocross and think that if these pants had been designed more like a motocross over-the-boot pant, the fit and functionality would have been better. Adjustable waist is a MUST in moto pants whether it's for the street or the dirt because of how the body repositions when sitting on the bike vs. standing. Also, the need for flexibility in the crotch area for lifting the leg to get on and off the bike is necessary. As far as looks, they are beautiful and I've gotten compliments about how nice they look. Negative marks for these pants are for the functionality and purpose for riders. Still waiting for someone to get the design for function and beauty right for a pair of women's riding pants.

Pants look good!
I put these pants on and my teenage son said "Mom, you look hot in those pants!" It's hard to imagine looking good with pads on my hips but these pants seem to have accomplished that according to the men in my life. Like the other reviews said, they are sized really small. I went up one size. I wore them in 80 to 90 degree weather and the air flow is pretty good. Haven't tried wearing them in cooler weather.

EXCELLENT LADIES riding troosers
these fit really well, don't make you feel like a bulky snowman at all.
my favourite things about these: the style/cut. the bungees at the sides. the zipper at the bottom to get out of them easily. the removeable liner. best of all -- HIP and KNEE protection! when I was shopping for ladies leg gear, didnt see much in the way of hip protection, so these were really great to find.
there arent any pockets, but honestly if you crash and you have something hard in a trouser pocket, it will probably result in more harm than good, so no pockets isnt too much a big deal to me.
if i could change anything/add anything/downsides to these: colour variety. those girlie ones are too girlie for me and the white ones ARE tempting but look kinda like chaps... eh. I wish there were some different colour styles. ALSO THE BUTT CRACK VISIBILITY -- oh lord cmon please make a higher back or a stronger stretchy thing in the back. I had to put a belt on these to hinder visualizing my behind.
i've had these for about one year now and wear them 99% of the time I ride, without the liner. the liner makes a lot of noise when you walk around, like snowpants.
overall, I love love love these.

Savannah pants cute and practical
I am a 5'10" woman who weighs 135 lbs. It has been a challenge for me to find riding pants that are feminine and that fit properly. I have had to wear men's pants prior to this and they fit me incorrectly. These pants fit perfectly. I ordered one size bigger than I thought I needed so I could wear them over my jeans. They fit perfectly over my jeans, but will also work in the summer over a pair of leggings or shorts. The back of the pants do go down a little bit. If I didn't have pants on underneath it would expose my butt crack. Not such a big deal because I am going to sew the zipper in from my jacket and zip it to my jacket.
These pants have many areas where adjustments can be made for sizing options.
I would buy these again as these have become my favorite riding pants. I feel protected in them and they are feminine.

Very sharp looking riding pant but they do run small
Very stylish and versatile. These will be warm in the winter and with the removable liner, comfortable in the summer. I bought these pants instead of chaps this time around and am very pleased. I normally wear an 8 but ordered an XL which fits. Very low rise too so be prepared to wear a long waisted shirt with these pants unless you want to show some skin.

Suits well for petite woman. :)
I am a petite woman only at 5'1" high. It's quite difficult for me to get riding pants which suits my size. But this pant suits me well and gave me the long legs effect! Great!

Great style & material, low Rise, tight around pelvic area.
I'm a 5'4, 110 lbs, 34'' hips & 26'' waist. I wear juniors clothes size 1,3 bc of my type of body frame, #size 25 Guess#, regular women size 0. I bought XS & fit just right, bit on a thight side in the pelvic area. Not able to wear anything under. If you have a very small frame and tight abs, this is a good fit. Plenty long enough for me #extra 1''#. Comes up high enough in the back.
Love the outer material and design,but miss the pockets. The removal protective pads on the side stay low on the hip. Would have liked to start from the waist band, not a a palm down. Pelvic/hip bones have no protection. Ziper has minimal cover to protect gas tank from scratch and sticks out. The rain liner is double. Wish the inner side was a different material to prevent swet from that nylon material. Knee pads are a bit uncomfortable as they are away from knee and hit back and forth when you walk, not able to tighten around the knee.
Overall I/m OK with them mostly bc not many have a modern design and fit, but could improve protection and comfort.
