REV'IT! Women's Airwave Pants The perfect match for the Airwave ladies' jacket, these trousers are also great summer over-pants to wear on top of your jeans when commuting. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times, and the fit is designed specifically for a woman's body. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or daring off white. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch , PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Lite ladies CE protection at knees, prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist , adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf , adjustable protector pockets , short connection zipper , elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

These are the most versatile riding pants on the market. They're mesh pants that are airy enough to go over jeans, but fully lined and opaque so you can have nothing else on underneath. They're light and provide great airflow, but have full knee armor and hip padding built in. The zippers go all the way up the inseams, so it's easy to put on and take off these pants while wearing boots. The fit is not overly baggy, but they are roomy enough to not pinch or bind up in riding position. The quality and attention to detail is great, and I'm thankful for a gear manufacturer that doesn't insist on vomiting pink and floral designs all over their women's gear. The only signs that these are women-specific pants are the fit and the tiny finish details in light blue (teensy bit of light blue stitching and light blue grommets on the zipper pulls).
I'm 5'3" and have a 25 inch waist, and bought size 34. The pants are a smidge big on me, but overall a pretty good fit. I think some stretch panels could have improved the fit a little, and there is a bit too much material in the crotch when standing or sitting. In addition, I find the waist height a little uncomfortable, but I'm pretty short so it's probably the right fit for someone who is average height. They are also a little bit long on me, but I'd rather have them too long than too short. These are just very minor gripes... overall I'm very happy with these pants and have recommended them to others.

Alpinestars doesn't disappoint with the quality of the SP-2s. The leather is soft and flexible, and the gloves are comfortable straight out of the packaging. Tons of features that you'd usually only find on men's gloves at this price point. They look AWESOME in the white/black colorway. My only complaint is that XS is still a bit big for me. I've tried on other Alpinestars gloves in XS (the SP-1 and I think one of their Drystar models) and the others fit perfectly, even a little bit tight. But the SP-2 gloves in XS are slightly loose all around and the fingers are a bit long. They're still okay but I wish there was an XXS available.
Yes, I recommend this product.
