Scorpion Women's Savannah Pants
Awesome pants - so far!
There is a lot of size/fit "drama" online about these pants. When I saw them on sale, I figured it was worth a shot. I am 5'4", 110lbs. I wear a size 0 in Old Navy jeans. I ordered the Savannah in size Small in Spring color. I would have preferred just black or something not so "flowery", but they are not too girlie.
They seem extremely well made. They fit me almost perfect. The rise is not so low that I have to worry about flashing anyone, even on the bike. I do wear a belt with them. The length is perfect. They are still roomy enough, even with the liner, to wear over my jeans, yet I can cinch them down enough at the thigh and waist to wear solo.
The hip armor is fine and comfy. The knee armor was comfortable although it could perhaps be a bit higher up? After more rides I'll decide and perhaps modify their location a bit. I do wish they had at least one pocket.
I'll have to wait until summer to decide how they flow air, but with the mesh they look a heck of a lot cooler than my jeans and chaps would be. Plus they just look sexy, not like a lot of other options out there.

Great pants, however, buy up sizes.
I am about 5' 6", and weigh about 137 lbs. 27" waist and 39" at the hip. I don't have massive curves, but I do have some.
According to the sizing guide and my measurements, I bought a small, at first, and couldn't come close to getting into them. Returned the small. Got the medium. I could get into them, but couldn't bend my legs very well. Returned the medium, and got the large.
The large worked beautifully. I ride rain or shine... it's Seattle... if you get a motorcycle here, and don't expect to ride in the rain... get real! Anyway, these pants work pretty darn well all year round. Ridden in 10 degree Fahrenheit weather. That was really cold, but for a 30 minute commute, I was happy. I have made peace with being wet, from the rain here, but the waterproof lining does a great job in keeping my work cloths dry.
As for the curves, I do have to wear a belt to keep them up. The waistline seems to come straight up from the hip, instead of tapering inward. There are belt loops, and in using those, I've had no problem.
Just my opinion, but these pants are friggen' hot, too.

Fashion and Function!
Having never been on a bike before choosing a pair of pants was a challenge. Husband insisted they be safe and functional. I wanted fashion and style. These met all of our criteria. I was comfortable in them for a 10 hour day out on the bike as a passenger.

My boyfriend bought me a jacket for Christmas and I love it so I decided to get myself the pants so when we go on long rides we are both protected. I had read the reviews and saw where they can run a bit small so I got the next size bigger and they are perfect.

Muy versátil, de buena calidad
Sin duda es un pantalón fabricado con buenos materiales, protege las zonas de riesgo en cualquier impacto, la tela se ve muy resistente, el precio: Magnifico.
Pagamos por un producto de buena calidad, comparado con otros que ha usado mi mujer. No te arrepentirás, luce muy bien en una dama que se suba a una bella moto italiana.

Ok, bought this product and received it very promptly...
On the small for sizing..Im a size 10 and had to buy the extra large.
I found that the thigh area could do with a bit more room as getting on my bike is a bit of a challenge :)
Also your rear end cleavage tends to show.. a bit more length in the waist would be welcomed.
Overall I love wearing them and its nice to see some feminine gear. Would recommend them.

Great pair of pants!
I looked at these for months, hoping I would get money soon to buy them. But, money never came my way and I got them for Christmas! I am 5'5" and 125 pounds. I usually wear a 7 in juniors jeans and smalls in everything else. I ordered a Large in these pants, hoping I could also stuff jeans into them. My jeans fit great! The large is the perfect size for me. The legs a little long, but that will be great if I wear boots with these. I agree with the person below me that suggested stretchy material in the saddle. It was hard to get my leg over, but that is also combined with my short legs, tall motorcycle, and three layers of clothing. I'm happy with these so far and I hope I never have to find out if they hold up well or not during a crash! I will suggest these pants to any of my friends.

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.
