Scorpion Covert Pro Jeans The ultimate in urban stealth, the Scorpion Covert Pro Jeans give you an enormous level of protection while maintaining the look of a standard pair of jeans. Sans any visible seams, funky pockets or zippers, the Covert Pro Jeans still pack a punch with a full coverage DuPont Kevlar lining and pockets for SAS-Tec knee and hip armor without giving away the fact you are wearing a protective motorcycle pant. For those occasions when wearing a full textile or leather riding pant is not an option, the Covert Pro Jeans are the perfect choice for getting you where you need to go undercover but not under protected. Features: Traditional 5-pocket design Cordura 373 GSM (85 cotton / 15 nylon) abrasion resistant exterior 250 GSM DuPont Kevlar Lining from the knee to the waist Pocket for adjustable SAS-Tec Level 2 knee armor (sold separately) Pocket for optional SAS-Tec Level 1 hip armor (sold separately) Night Viz reflective material at inner cuff Full mesh lining for comfort and airflow

I'm 5' 10" and 175 lbs.. I ordered a 32 waist and 32 length. The waist is a little snug but a 34 waist would have been too loose. The blue colour reminds me of the old worn Levi's which I like. The material and stitching look very durable. I have a 30" inseam so the longer legs fit better when in a seated position. It's still spring up here in Canada but I have a feeling that these pants could be quite warm in the summer. I have always just worn jeans when riding but always felt quite vulnerable. These pants should provide the protection I need.

These are great looking gloves but I haven't had a chance to actually wear them while riding. The one point that has already been made is that they run small. I normally take a large but ordered an XL because of other reviews. These XL's fit perfectly. They are actually a wee bit snug but time and use will resolve that.

I read the other reviews before buying because my only real concern was how they would fit. I typically wear a size 10.5 US and my feet are very narrow. I have rarely ordered footwear on line because sizing varies so much between shoe or boot manufacturers. I decided to take a chance and ordered a Euro 45. They actually fit very well. If anything they feel slightly large but a heavy sock or an insole makes them fit perfectly.
As for the features and style, again they have really hit the mark. They look sporty without being the full race look. The quality is there as you'd expect from Alpinestar. I wore them on a 1400 mile, three day trip to Chicago and found them very comfortable. I haven't tested their waterproof feature yet but I'm confident that they will deliver. I love these boots.
