Good Value as 3 season pant, but I doubt the durability in a crash

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
One thing that is not mentioned is that the size runs about 1 size larger. When I bought my airflow alpinestars pants, I had to get a large or size 50, but for this when I bought a large it was way too big. Bought a small off eBay (international customer so postage would be too expensive to return) and it fits perfectly. The value is good because you can wear it most seasons except summer but it is a budget pant and the only impact protection is in the knees but if you wear full length boots it should cover up to your shins anyway. Also durability is average because it feels like i'm just wearing fabric, what's stopping it from coming off my waist in the event of a backwards slide, but it's better than jeans plus waterproof so that's why I bought it.

There is 3 different ones, the Warrior EVO, Warrior Comp 510, and then the Warriror Comp but with a longer tailbone section?
