I read all the reviews before I bought these pants, and sizing was a crapshoot. I'm 6' 190lbs, and normally where a 34W x 32L (or even 34L) Levis. I went with the 54 and they are perfect fit. Some said that they can't be worn over jeans, but for me they work perfectly. The shin guard goes on the outside of my Sidi Fusion boots and doesn't look funny or bulge out. I did not get the pinching behind the knee that some others have noted, probably my legs are on the thinner side. Waist adjusts about 3-4 inches, so it's considerable. I can fit my wallet/iPhone in front pockets, no problem. I wouldn't wear them in the mall, but a stop at Starbucks is no problem. They don't look baggy, but they are clearly motorcycle pants. Light padding in hip area, great knee/shin protection.

Icon Contra Jacket From the shadowy realm of street-styled textile jackets, Icon again tapped their mx roots and tripled into the main. Contra is technically perfect - superior in fit and function to all that came before. Ultra durable nylons are strategically patterned into the industries finest no-bind fit. Fighter mesh panels allow intake and exhaust airflow dramatically reducing the chance of overheating. A full complement of Icon's internal CE approved Field Armor provide ample street insurance. Finally, ballistic rubber badging puts the classy in this chassis. Zip one up and become a believer, this is the ultimate in textile perfection. Durable nylon textile chassis Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Removable CE Field Armor impact protector elbow Removable CE Field Armor impact protector shoulder Removable dual-density foam back pad Removable insulated liner Internal zippered pocket for secure storage Sport Icon fit Imported

I bought this Jacket solely on the reviews - and of course the looks. I went with the slate. I normally wear a XL in normal jackets, got a Large on this and it fits perfectly. Airflow is very good, even with the liner in. Not for colder weather.
