the protection worked
When I bought these, I tried them on in a store. I am 5'10"-5'11" and on the thin side at 165 lbs, 32 waist, 32 inseam. I had to buy a small, and yes, that included putting them on over my jeans. It feels as though the knee protectors hang too low when you are in a standing position, but when you are on your bike, in a riding position, the knee protectors feel like they cover your knees better, although maybe still a tad low.
Last August, I was on a ride in the country when a baby deer jumped out of the grass on a two-lane highway, colliding with my front tire. Target-fixation and locking the front brakes caused me to low-side, sliding down the asphalt 60-80 feet. Amazingly, the pants protected my knees and skin without any road rash whatsoever. Unfortunately, the road did wear through the outer layer of the pants, chewing some large holes in them. As the guy in the store told me: leathers can be worn after an accident, but these textile pants are only good for one crash. He was right, but I was very happy with the protection.

Satisfied Overall (no pun intended)
I bought these as I was looking for a windproof full-zip overpant that was a bit more trim fitting than some of the American branded products. As far as that goes, I'm pretty satisfied. I'm 6'1", 190 lbs. and my jean size is usually 36W 32L. After first trying the XL's I ended up with a large. They're a bit long when standing and the knee pads fall below the knee, but in a riding position everything is right where it's supposed to be. I normally wear them without the thermal liner over office attire when commuting to work but on colder mornings #40-50#, they're not quite as windproof as I had hoped. When wearing them over shorts with the thermal liner installed, they're pretty toasty.
Only other complaint is that the waist adjuster is a somewhat flimsy piece of elastic that really doesn't do much adjusting. On other pants I've had, the adjuster acted more like a belt. Fortunately they already fit pretty well so for me, it's not a big deal.

Good product for the money, but...
Wanted some waterproof textiles to help stay dry during downpours. The removable insulation is good and keep you toasty warm. The built-in in hip pockets and knee guards are some of the main motivations for getting it. Aside from those, it zips up nicely with a Alphinestar textile waterproof jacket I have. Ordered a XL since i am 6' but the knee guards rides a little low when standing up. Not sure how the knee guard is going to stay in place during a spill. Would be nice to have a adjustable velco or drawstring right on to of the knee guard from dropping or going out of place while airborne.

In my opinion.. 5 Stars easily.
I'm about 5'10 at 190lbs and ordered the XL as I planned on wearing them as over pants as intended.They fit well over jeans or sweats and I never think about the comfort as they never intrude on my riding. I use them to commute to work and also as my weekend riding pants. I couldn't be more happy with the results so far. I live in New Jersey so we get all kinds of weather, I wear them when it's cold, and/or when it's raining and never had a problem with water intrusion or with the cold. It was even snowing on my ride home and they worked flawlessly. overall I rate them 5 stars for the quality at the relatively low price. Your fellow rider Jeff.

Maybe a bit too oversized?
Perspective: By most accounts, I fall under the "average" title. I'm 5ft 10in (178cm), weigh about 150 lbs (68 kgs), and am of average build (neither too flabby nor too athletic). If anything, I might seem "skinny" by north american standards.
Sizing: The medium size for this product tends to run a little long in length and a little loose around the waist.
With boots on the back of the pant drags ever so slightly as I walk. If the silly thing came with belt loops I'd just cinch them up a little more but in lieu of the sensible option they have ineffective elasticized adjustment bands that do little to keep things up.
Protection: Haven't crash-tested the gear (yet?) but it all feels solid. As others have commented, the armour hits mid shin while walking but this corrects itself when perched on the bike. (just be sure to keep your knees bent when you hit the ground, yea?)
Features: Waterproofing feels solid. I can't yet comment on the all-season comfort but they don't get sweaty in 80°F (26°C) weather over a pair of shorts.

Needs to be better for the price
Purchased these pants to replace old Kushitani over pants that they no longer produce. Quality of the press studs holding the removal lining is not good, already one fastening has come away. I'm 75 kg @ 186 cm and find even wearing these as over pants the size suggestion was a little large making the pants slip down as the waste band elastic adjusters are next to useless. Having said that the pants are warm in the current winter temperatures in Tokyo, about 2 degrees C and are waterproof in a heavy downpour for a 40 minute ride. One final point The knee protectors are too low and very uncomfortable so I had to remove them.

Not Waterproof
I bought these to replace my old pants (another brand). I commute everyday rain or shine about 10 miles each way in city traffic. Even in a medium rain, water seeps through the butt where I'm sitting. The seams are sealed, so the only possibility seems to be that the coating is not enough to resist the pressure when sitting and therefore water is forced through the pores. Not acceptable at all, especially considering the price. The cut of these pants is a bit tight in the hips and the legs are super long. I'm 5'11 and 185lbs and the large is OK but would be tight with the insulated liner in place. If they were waterproof, the rest would be acceptable, but i'm very dissapointed in these pants.

Great Construction, Slightly off fit
These pants are leaps and bounds better than my old Joe Rocket ones. My old ones had the zippers bind on the flaps and eventually it destroyed them, so I bought these. The zippers are higher quality, the design is better and they zipping is very smooth.

I'm a tall slender build, so the fit is a bit off. The knee armor seems to be just below my knee while walking. Once I'm sitting on the bike, everything seems to be in the right place.

These can get pretty hot on a 70+ degree day, but are acceptable while moving.

Great Value for the price
Pants are a little long but ride good. I recently moved to Kauai and have had several opportunities to try them out in the rain. I've gotten to work dry every ride. The full length side zippers make it very easy to get them on and off and they are comfortable on long rides. I'll defiantly be buying another pair when these are ready to retire.

Great over pants, a bit on the smaller size
These are great, They are waterproof, I took them snowboarding with the knee pads removed. They are a tighter fit then regular over pants, just like my A-Stars jacket. If you are in the military get at least a size larger. I can barely fit a large with my ABUs on. I am 6' 190 lbs if that helps. But they held up to all day on snow and ice without getting torn up, so they seem durable.
