I purchased the Norsorex Pants for wear under jeans in warm weather. I have had difficulty with the knee protection in "over pants" moving around, but the Dainese pads stay located properly. The hip pads seem a little low, but not too much. The tailbone pad is felt when first starting to ride, but quickly forgotten. I am 5'6" with a 33" waist and the size medium fits well.
There have been comments about difficulty pulling them on, but I find that putting on the socks AFTER the Norsoex Pants is easier. I think that a zippered ankle would be uncomfortable inside the boot.
As for breathability, they let air pass through quite well. But in 85 degree weather, the extra layer is noticeable in urban traffic or when stopped. They are fine as long as you are moving above 25mph. It's a small inconvenience to pay for protection.
The only downside is that they can get uncomfortably warm and sweaty behind the padded areas if you stop for a meal, as it is difficult to change out and back into them at a restaurant. I would have scored the Features higher except for the absence of a fly.
Yes, I recommend this product.
