I purchased these pants along with the Kit J knee guards back in march. I received the knee guards in a couple of days , which is the usual delivery time when I purchase stuff from Revzilla.
I was told the pants were on back order and they would be in around April. April came and I received an email notifying me that they were delayed and wouldn't be in until some time in June. Well June came and so did my pants. I wasn't angry or anything just disappointed. I know sometimes things are out of our control so I understood about the delay.
I wear a size 36 in jeans so that's the size I ordered. I tried them on and they fit almost perfect. I was pretty happy with that, but when I put on my Dainese hard shorts under my pants, they were kinda tight. Not soo much that it was to uncomfortable, but tighter then what I'm used to. I called Revzilla and was told that they will stretch. I hope so. It would be more comfortable if they did stretch out a bit.
The length is long ,but not so long that it bothered me ( I'm 5-9).
So far so good. I'm pretty happy with the fit. But here comes the problem. I put in the knee guards and tried on my pants again. The knee guards hung way below my knee, even in the riding position they were just under the bottom of my knee. Very uncomfortable. So now they don't work for me as far as the knee guards go.
I called Rev again and they said I would be able to send the knee guards back for store credit. The person I talked to was really cool about it and very helpful. He suggested an option that I'm gonna go with.
I'm not going to send the pants back. I mean I waited like three months for them and I do like the style and the fit ( still hoping they stretch a bit). I haven't ridden in them yet because the California summer has kicked in and its been hot as heck out, so I cant comment on how they breathe. If I can, I'll update that part.
All in all I'm happy with the pants as they are. The style is really cool and I love how they aren't baggy like most other pants I've looked at. The only thing is the knee guards. For some one a lot taller then me, I'm sure they will be placed perfectly but not for a 5-9 guy like me :)
I have to say that every time I've called Rev, whether to order something or to return something, every one I've talked to has been just awesome. This is the main reason I continue to buy from Revzilla. The customer service is just outstanding! Thanks guys !!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I originally bought these in a large, but they were a little too big. I am 5-9 and around 193. Most of my weight is in my gut :( ( im working on it lol) But I have skinny legs and my upper torso, aside from my stomach, is average to thin build. I returned them, with no hassle, for a medium. They fit perfect. They are very comfortable and not very bulky. I wear them with my slim jeans, not skinny jeans, and they fit well and are comfortable even on the bike.
When I returned the larges I was emailed and told the mediums were currently out of stock and that i would be notified as soon as they came in. True to their word I was notified. Two days later they came.
I've always had a very positive experience when dealing with the guys at Revzilla. Being a new rider I really rely on their opinions and experience. They are very helpful. You never feel like they are rushing you and you are never made to feel like an idiot. They really do take time with you and you can tell they really are into riding. Not like some places, the guys at Revzilla have experience with a lot of the stuff they sell and they know what they are talking about. I will continue to buy my gear and whatever else i might need , from Revzilla.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First off I have to say I really love these gloves. I feel for the price they are an awesome bargain.
The only issue I have would be the amount of room I have in the finger tips. They fit perfectly on and around my hand but there is some room at the finger tips.
I read the small info booklet that came with the gloves. It said your finger tips shouldn't touch any material and there should be room at the ends of each finger. After reading this and trying on the gloves again, it made sense. This is how they are suppose to fit.
This is my second pair of gloves. My other pair was from scorpion. I had them for about three months with only 400 miles on them. They started fraying really bad at the finger tips so I decided to buy some new ones. I went with these. I guess i just have to get used to the fit, which again is comfortable. Just feels weird with the room i have in the finger tips. But over all I'd have to say I really love the gloves.
