Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants Icon built the Overlord leather pant for the street. They are not a race derivative track pant poorly re-purposed for the urban environment. They are street specific and here's why. Crafted from the same 1.2-1.4 mm leather as our Overlord jacket, the Overlord leather pant is more than durable enough for the most brutal of street duty. The street specific pattern accommodates the aggressive ergonomics of modern sportbikes while greatly reducing the all too common butt sag when standing. Mechanical flex zones and integrated stretch cordura panels enhance on-bike mobility. Over the boot leg patterns eliminate the racetrack refugee look by allowing your boots to fit under the pant.The integrated plastic knee armor provides enhanced joint abrasion protection should you decide to put these pants to the ultimate test. A three quarter length zipper allows the pant to be connected to any of the Overlord leather jackets.To nip your question in the bud - no, there is no knee puck. We built these pants for the street not track, and dragging knee on the street, as we were recently informed by an irate law officer, is frowned upon. ICON attack fit 1.2-1.4MM Premium grade leather chassis Removable CE knee impact protectors Integrated hip/thigh padding Gathered stretch panels for comfort and flexibility Breathable panels for venting Strategically placed perforated leather for ventilation Premium YKK zippers Please Note Icon logos on knees are white, not black as shown in the product photos and video.

These pants are high quality leather, and do the job. They were pretty much the only "over the boot" leather pants I could find. The knee pads are a bit bulky, and get in the way of gripping the tank, although I have gotten more used to them. The lack of pockets is also annoying, as I have to find places to put my phone and wallet.
Fit: I'm 6', 145lbs. I got the size 30 pants. These pants fit me extremely well in the thigh and hip area. I wish they were an inch or two longer, but I wear riding boots now, so it doesn't really matter.
Overall, I feel like the pants are protective, and fit well. I just feel they are a bit overpriced.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Standard dark smoke face shield, and works as it's supposed to. The dark smoke is an ok darkness for sunny days, but I don't think it has any anti-glare coatings on it. At night, it's a little iffy using it in the city. I probably wouldn't use it on the highway at high speeds, where you need to see farther.
I did drop the helmet onto the street, from waist level, and it results in some small scratches in the face shield. This was expected.
The dark look looks cool, if that's your thing. It has the position lock on it, but I have the Vortex helmet, which doesn't support this feature.
Yes, I recommend this product.
