These Klim pants are cut very close to style jeans, but of coarse bulkier. Getting the proper size and lenth for these armored pants will be very important to your comfort on and off the bike. I'm 5'9"/ 34" waist.. 2nd go around I now have the 36" long for the correct comfort. Great pants with just shorts on under them, but a lot heavier than jeans.

Very pleased with exterior of jacket the pockets are large and deep also expand a bit. Inside the jacket is a soft mesh inner lining not what I'm use to, but still comfortable the inner pockets with velcro closures are not of much for holding things in place at times. For me overall this jacket gets the job done with the protection and 100% wp guarantee I was looking for.

Suspenders are adequate may need a small clip in the back to stop from occasionally falling off the shoulder. The "loop system" is money part of this product. Could not justify the step up in price to the Klim more exspensive suspenders. These will get the job done with out any sharp metal clips stabbing you in the back or coming off because they are velcro on the loop ends.

This piece of armor does not pocket around shoulder socket it floats across the top of the shoulder and over the end. It feels like it gives more overall suface protection, but it fits more like a football shoulder pad. Still offering more protection than standard armor in my opinion.

this knee armor has a wider appearance and feel while riding over your knee on the bike which I found be much better than the standard armor, but you don't really feel it when your off the bike

this hip armor has the density and larger cut size compared to standard hip protection that really leaves you feeling like your are protected in your riding gear along with the softer and flexible material it's made from....it's a quality upgrade

Very pleased with the gloves. Only after wearing them on a couple of rides, the gloves feel like I've been wearing them longer. It's my first pair of gauntlet gloves, they seem to have some advantages for protection and weather. With the protective and material qualites these gloves offer, I'm sure there will be years of use ahead, plus it's 100% waterproof w/Gore-Tex... I think a great all in one glove!!
