Tour Master Overpants
I ended up returning these, but wanted to provide a review on the fit at least to help others. I'm 5'6", 140 pounds, 30/32 waist, very avg build, so ordered a medium on these with the short inseam. Even over a pair of jeans, I found these to run quite large, and despite being a short inseam, they were pretty darn baggy. Much like any normal clothes. if you're a shorter guy like me, even short inseams seem to be the long side. I ended up ordering Revit's Vapor pants in small/short, and even these are a bit baggy on me - but at least work much better.
Quality and materials seem perfectly acceptable, though they did not seem to have any neat design features or interesting detail - fairly nondescript black pants.

Take review for what it is!
Being a new rider, please take my review for what it is, on my first pair of pants. I can give no bad scores because I like them.
I bought these protective motorcycle pants because A- they had a good review and B- came in a short inseam.
They have adjustable knee protection, hip pads and seem that they would do well in case of a mishap.
They are very adjustable for fit with adjustments at the ankle and waist being easy to manipulate. Using the sizing chart, they fit me very well. They are said to be an all weather pant. Just obtaining them, I have only ridden in cool to colder weather. They kept me warm with a air of basic sweat pants underneath for a 20 minute ride at about 40 degrees. I have not opened vents. I do not know if they will be cool enough in the summer. I am a non-limber man, but as these pants unzip the complete length of the outer leg, they are easy to get in and out of with motorcycle boots on.
They are heavy, and add bulk. But, I bought them for protection, and feel a sense of comfort wearing them I did not have when I just ride in jeans.
Not having needed (thank God) the protection aspect as of yet, I do not now how well they will perform. And as for durability for such stuff as zippers and stitching etc., time will tell.
I would recommend them.

Overall these overpants do what I need
Easy on and off with my shoes removed. I wear these for commuting to and from work and change my shoes at work anyway. They don't have a pocket through to your pants pocket but not a big deal for me. I did get an XXL as others had recommended when I normally wear just an XL in everything else that I wear. Also, these pants do not fold up small, so don't plan on tucking them away easily. Hope this helps.

I'm glad I bought these overpants. I actually wear these as my primary pant. They have held up for almost 23,000 miles so far. Maybe I was lucky but I've had no stitching or zipper issues over a lot of usage including rain rides. The price is pure value and they're armored to boot. I highly recommend em for the price.

Great bang for the buck. A product that does exactly as advertised. Just be prepared to send them back to the manufacturer for defects.
Great pants overall. Really enjoyed them for the time that I had them. Excellent product for the price you pay. Good protection, though you will have to look to outside the company if you plan on upgrading beyond the flimsy hip padding. Water resistant to a point; from my experience I know that in moderate rain for a 20 minute ride you will stay dry. Not sure what the failure point is though. I felt that it was just long enough when standing but maybe a little short when seated on the bike. I had a Medium tall and am 5' 11" 175lbs. Be prepared to return the pants. After 2 weeks of owning the pants with maybe 7 trips on them the crotch and zipper seams were coming undone. From what I have heard this is common but not the norm for the company.

Very adjustable and comfortable.
Full length zippers make for easy in and out in weather changes.

Not as durable as first thought.
After 3 months of riding on average 3 days per week, the seam in the crotch just below the zipper is coming undone. They do keep you warm down to the low 30's. I wear a 34-34 pant and the 34 tall fit well. I didn't recommend due to the seam coming undone.

Available for the vertically challenged
Always an issue to find pants that fit and these fit just fine. Quality materials & workmanship.
