Tour Master Quest Pants
Not for me
Bought a pair today at a local dealer and returned them an hour later. They were WAY too short while sitting on my bike.
As soon as I got on it, they came up to about 1" above my 9" boot top. To get them to stay down where they should, I would have had to worn them "gangsta style", which is impossible on a bike, anyway, even if I was into that, which I'm NOT!
They would have been a great value - IF they were made to fit normal-sized humans (I'm only 5' 7", 145 lbs, size medium) but they're apparently not.
If you're less than 5 feet tall and have short legs for your height to boot, then these are the pants for you. Otherwise, forget it!

not bad for the price
Front pockets are very hard to use and they get very warm in above 80 degree weather. Rode from southeast ohio to Denver CO (3400 miles)at the end of september.in colder weather they were fine but a little warm on warm days even while riding at 70mph. Large pockets would be a nice improvement.

Nice pants with one serious flaw
At first, they seemed reasonably nice. The knee armor has three different slots (to adjust for height), and the hip armor is removable. The quality of the armor and textile seems reasonable for the price. They fit as I expected.
However, these pants have an Achilles' heel. Tour Master decided to go with a very low-quality coil-style zipper for the fly, which failed on me after three months. It felt very cheap, and I doubt my experience is an exception to the norm. I don't understand why they'd skimp on the zipper on what are otherwise nice pants.

Heavy duty but too stuffy for warmer temperatures
These pants are well built and very heavy duty. They are very simple but do have adjustable knee pads. They have no ventilation features. I bought them to freeway commute in Seattle this Winter. I expect they will be very warm and dry. For now (late summer) they are comfortable for my 60 degree mornings, but too stuffy for my 70-80 degree ride home. I will buy mesh pants (Tourmaster Tracker air) to compliment them.

Great Value, good quality
I bought them for my son
I too have the same pair and have been pleased with them. I did have a fall and they did their job and I'm still wearing them and felt comfortable to buy my son the same pants.
Good price, well made. Can't go wrong.
I also have the piece of mind of buying from Revzilla knowing that with confidence that if there is a problem they will stand behind the product they sell.

Bang for the buck
I have had a pair of these pants for about three years and 60,000 miles.They were cheap, offered good protection and were waterproof without me having to fool with a liner.
I wish they had more features- better snaps and adjustable bands, but, hey you get what you pay for.
The armor is good and adjustable for a good fit.
Mine have never leaked, not once until a few weeks ago. I noticed that the black was fading and turning purple. I ran into a monsoon and realized- it was time for more pants.

Great over pants for the money!
Easy on, easy off! These are a great value for the money. I've worn them at 30 degrees F over jeans, and stayed plenty warm. I haven't used them in warm weather yet, so I don't know how hot they'll be.
I'm a "dress for the slide, not the ride" kind of person, so I'll put up with a little sweating if I have to.
Seems like a solid product!

Great value, good product
I've had a pair of these pants for a little over a year and though I've definitely gotten my money's worth I wish I'd spent a little more.
The button/snaps are weak, requiring me to wear a belt... and the belt loops are small, requiring a narrower belt than I'd like to wear for long periods of time,
They are sold as "breathable" with a soft taffeta lining but I often find them clammy inside and as often as not wear long underwear (unless it's absolutely too hot to do so).
The breathable lining has recently split in the crotch requiring the use of rain/overpants to keep the one place you don't want wet dry.
The knee protection adjusts to the proper position well and stays in place, the hip pads are comfortable as long as they don't pucker up.
All that said I rate these pants very highly and likely will replace them with another pair. In a world where you get what you pay for, you get more for less, by purchasing these particular Tour Master pants.
