I have had the pants now for about a month and managed to put about 200 miles on them with both highway and commuting runs. I bought the shell only because I wanted something to wear over jeans for armor and extending my winter season.
Size: I wear a size 40w/30 inseam jean, sometimes a 42/32. I ordered a size 42 and it fit over my jeans comfortably. My only fit issue is that the pants have a high waist (reaches my navel), but the knee armor is very low. I had to put the knee armor at the highest velcro point I could, and wear the pants pulled all the way up - and I still have to pull the armor higher after I sit down on the bike. Once on the bike it is fine - but for me, the pants are not comfortable for walking around in much. They are fairly easy to get in and out of - I can do it with 13 inch work boots on as long as the lower leg zipper is open all the way.
Armor: the armor seems good overall, but I am worried about the lower leg zippers. It takes only a little pressure on the bottom of the leg and the zipper will open all the way back up again. I could see the lower velcro strap getting caught and pulling zipper completely open in a slide. I was hoping for some better closure, but since I wear them as overpants I can't say if having the inner liners would somehow take care of this problem.
Overall - a good value for the pricepoint, but I wish they had provided a more secure closure for the leg zippers.
