Maybe "Loves" is a strong word, but she only rides 2-up with me, and they are the first pants that she actually doesn't mind putting on to ride.
Style is good, length is good also. I'd recommend them to any girl who needs textile/mesh pants.

I wear a Large in Mechanix gloves and pretty much all other gloves, even my soccer goalie gloves are a size 10 and these fit spot-on.
PRO:
Large cuff makes them super easy to pull on.
Soft yet strong leather makes them very comfortable from the very first ride.
Amount of armor makes me feel very secure, should I go down.
Airflow is pretty good for a sturdy leather glove. Not as much as a mesh glove, but this ain't mesh! :)
CON:
The finger armor panels will hang on your levers if they are too close to the grips. I run my adjustable levers a bit further out due to this.
The little flap that covers the wrist strap is hard to keep out of the way while tightening the small strap.
Amount of material in the main gauntlet is tricky to get to fold down correctly. Maybe I am trying to get them too tight...
Overall, I love these gloves and recommend them to all my riding friends.

I have worn these boots in temps from 50's to 80's and they have been great for airflow. No swamp-foot and you definitely feel the air moving.
Fit: I wear a 14 in my normal running shoes (Brooks/Montrail) and ordered a 14 in these boots. the length is perfect, but the footbed is really really wide. Not enough to make me dislike the boots, but I am used to a more snug/secure fit.
Entry/Exit is easy with half zip and full velco. My boot does have a flap of material (inside boot, just in front of zipper bottom, that seems to have been folded over and stiched extra. It's sort of a "flap" of material that I can feel when putting them on, but not after a minute or two of wearing. Left foot only, no weird flap on right boot. I probably could have returned them for 'quality exchange' but it's not that bad and I didn't want to be without boots during all the shipping.
I tried to take the toe sliders off to check them out, but the nuts that are mounted in the boot would just spin. Again only on the left boot. maybe I got a dud of a left boot... ?
To sum up: Great value, pretty comfortable, not really as "secure" as I would like because of loose foot section.

My waist fluctuates between 33 to 34 in jeans and 33-34" inseam (in jeans). 6'2" 180lbs, no real "American gut" on me. I bought the size 34 Anthem pants because I have long legs.
As stated in the video review, the waist on these pants is oversized. Obviously since they are OVERpants, you want them over your regular pants, so buying according to your normal size should work. However for me, I did not like that the waist was only fitted with the ratchet. It just wouldn't get tight enough for my comfort. Instead of buying smaller (and shorter) pants, I went to the sewing maching and doubled over a 1/2" section on each side and ran a double-stitch. Instant snug waist and great fit everywhere else! It would have been nice to have velco adjusters on each side like so many other pants.
Length seems a bit short for me, but fits well while standing. I wear Cortech Latigo Air boots, so I don't have any skin showing around my ankles anyway. I certainly couldn't go any shorter on the legs, and really wish there was a Tall version of these pants.
2 front pockets are zippered and a bit small, but I can still fit smartphone in one and wallet in the other. Plus, there is another zipper in the pocket to access your jean/shorts pockets. Pretty slick!
3-position knee armor pockets work just fine, Tall pocket has them just right for me.
Have not gotten to ride yet, as it is now 55F and raining today. I will try to update later with airflow review. Good amount of mesh in lower legs and thighs, I don't expect any issues with airflow.
