Olympia X-Moto Pants Designed to coordinate with Olympia's X-Moto and GT jackets, this style can be worn as a stand alone riding pant or as full over pant. Its Mega Vent Panel System allows it to transition from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds, while front thigh vent panels lay flat when placed into self storage pockets. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Two front zipper pockets and two rear snap pockets offer extra storage for personal items. Foul weather rides are never a problem as these pants are also equipped with a waterproof / breathable liner that can be worn as wearable stand alone pants. Adjustable knee armor positions, stretch waist panels and EZ hem bottoms help riders achieve a customized fit. Features Outer shell constructed in 500 and 2000 denier Dupont Cordura MVS Mega Vent Panel system transitions the X Moto pant from solid body to adjustable airflow Waterproof liner pant Full side leg to waist zippers Removable and adjustable height CE approved MotionFlex armor at knees Cool mesh airflow lining Removable EVA compression foam at hips Custom Fit detailing at waist and bottom hem 3M Scotchlite reflective piping from waist to hem Relaxed tailored fit Four storage pockets 8 connecting zipper for jackets Leather reinforcement panels from inside thigh to hem bottom Comfort stretch knit at back of knees.

Got my X-Moto jacket and pants in the Sand color today!! After adjusting my gear how I wanted, I set off on a nice 150 mile mid-afternoon (73 deg. and no rain ride on my '08 BMW K1200S, including city streets, freeways and 50 mph. plus not gonna say what the plus was...LOL) two laners in the country. I am an athletic 5' 11" and 181 lbs. I ordered a LG. jacket and 34" waist pants.
They fit like a glove!! The jacket is just a tad tight with both liners in but very liveable for me. Any way I took both liners out of the jacket and liners from the pants and was very comfortable. The waist size in the pants is "true" so if you want these as an over pant you'll need to go a size or two larger depending on your preference. I didn't give it an excellent rating for "Protection and durability" category cuz I only had a sunny day to ride. I love the use of snaps and zippers all around. I would much rather have those features than velcro but I'm just knit pickin'. My only real complaint is that I would like for all pockets on the front of the jacket to be larger. They're supposed to be cargo pockets but really don't hold that much and the pants ventilate well however you get no ventilation in the seat/crotch area and that's where it's crucial. My other complaint would be that Olympia raised the price this year and made no improvements over last year which is why I didn't give it the top rating in the "Bang for the buck" category, but this gear is still a good value for the money.
For a first ride I can only say good things about this gear. It's comfortable, ventilates well, it's built to last and fit and finish is excellent and it looks great!! I definitely recomend both the jacket and pants. Those who know me know I do my homework before spending and I don't like wasting money!! You absolutely cannot go wrong with this gear for the money spent!! Great value.
The service I got from the folks at RevZilla was top rate. I had questions...they answered and made sure I was happy with my purchase!! The shipping was quick and the product was packed neatly. I'll definitely be a repeat customer!!
