Riding in San Francisco is not the issue, but when it comes to riding to and in the East Bay where temperatures range from 80s-100s wearing full leathers gets to be a problem. This pants offer the protection you need with good airflow and the ability to wear jeans. I purchased a size small and I wear a 29-30 waist line and 30-32 length in jeans and these pants fit just a little snug. I have ridden with them once and maybe it'll take some time to break it but right now they fit almost perfect (just a little tight around the calves, but nothing that causes me discomfort). I'm the type of rider that likes to wear as much protection as possible and when riding longer distances on the highway in hot temperatures, this is the solution. I can't say anything about the protection since I haven't crashed in them, but they offer protection in the knees and upper thighs (which is where most the impact will occur). Well worth the buy in my opinion.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Having ridden for a little more than a year now, I started out with the SP-8's because I needed a pair of gloves for my rider's training course. I didn't want to spend so much at first, but considering I have full leathers now, I was due for an upgrade. I have low sided once in the SP-8's going at about 35 mph and there was minor damage with no tears at all.
Comparing the SP-8's to the SP-2's (this product), the SP-2 feels so much sturdier and it just feels like it provides so much more protection just putting it on. The knuckles definitely are stronger and the pinky finger is attached to the ring finger which prevents it from ripping off when crashing. The difference between the two pairs is only $40, and it is well worth it. The only thing is that the SP-2's fingers feel a bit longer, but that isn't much of a concern for me. Overall I feel that it provides the protection you need commuting or on twisties for the price. I definitely recommend these.
