I'm about 6"1' 160 lbs. and normally wear a 32x32 jean. I almost went with medium, but decided on large instead. Fit is perfect and not baggy at all. Though not described as overpants, I can fit them over my jeans, knee armor, and armored shorts. With the layers, it does feel a bit snug, though I prefer that over too baggy. Without jeans they feel great, and have awesome airflow.
The pants do come with the attachment zipper in case you want to attach the pants to a non-AGV jacket, which is awesome! I had my girlfriend sew the zipper to my black Dainese Airflux jacket. Not only do they attach together easily, but they look like a matching set since they are both black mesh with reflective piping.
The knee armor placement sucks (too low and too inside) so I just removed the armor and wear separate knee armor. The hip protection is just a thin layer of foam that I can't imagine offering any real impact protection. I leave it in because it's thin, but also wear my armored shorts.
Wish there were more pockets, but that's not a deal-breaker. These pants are great, and the price is awesome. With the money you save vs. other mesh pants you can buy some better knee/hip protection.
FYI, the regular inseam length is 32", while the short length is 30". That info isn't clear from the descriptions, though can be confirmed elsewhere.

Nice simple helmet, stylish, needs improvements around ear area

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
I opted for this helmet because it was simple, stylish, and thought the gunmetal color would go well with my bike. The gunmetal color is much darker in person than in the picture, more of a very dark gray rather than a lighter sandy gray color. In low light conditions, the gunmetal is indistinguishable from black.
I normally wear a large size so I ordered large. Fits very well. It is also fairly light and doesn't fatigue my neck at all. The vents are easy to open and close with gloves on, and the face shield can be changed quickly and easily (even while wearing the helmet if need be).
My only complaint is about the ear cutout area of the removable cheek pads. There are sharp plastic borders around the pads which don't sit completely flush with the helmet around the ear area. They dig into the edge of my ears just above the lobes when wearing the helmet, and scrape my ears when taking the helmet off. Very uncomfortable. I liked the helmet overall, so I just fixed this problem by putting some car door edge guard over the sharp plastic borders. Problem solved, though I may try some foam strips in the future for even more comfort.
