Olympia X-Moto Pants Designed to coordinate with Olympia's X-Moto and GT jackets, this style can be worn as a stand alone riding pant or as full over pant. Its Mega Vent Panel System allows it to transition from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds, while front thigh vent panels lay flat when placed into self storage pockets. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Two front zipper pockets and two rear snap pockets offer extra storage for personal items. Foul weather rides are never a problem as these pants are also equipped with a waterproof / breathable liner that can be worn as wearable stand alone pants. Adjustable knee armor positions, stretch waist panels and EZ hem bottoms help riders achieve a customized fit.

Versatile pant with ease for putting on-off without removing your boots. Although not road tested yet, I suspect they will perform as advertised.

Bought this pant along with the GT Transition Jacket for an upcoming 7 day ride through the Alps. Although not road tested yet, I bought them for the variable weather conditions we expect to encounter on any given day. My research led me to this pant based on versatility, safety features, and overall design. The on-line videos were very helpful in making the decision.
I wear a 38-40 waist pant with 32" inseam, depending on the cut. I went with the 40" waist in these pants and they fit just a bit large on me, so the sizing chart appears to be true to size. I am having mine hemmed by a seamstress ($50 here in NS) to fit my bent-leg riding position. The hemming is complicated to make it operate and look good. I recommend an experienced seamstress.
I will post another review in September on return from what should be a good all-weather test.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket (Size SM)
Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket (Size SM)
Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket The concept of a solid body jacket that transforms to an air mesh jacket makes sense if the transition is quick and hassle free. The problem of storing or losing removable panels must also be addressed. Our all seasons GT jacket tackles these issues by offering a roll down, hide away, Mega Vent Panel System that transitions from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds. The GT is also equipped with a sporty, waterproof, two stage, Thermolite lined, inner jacket giving it multi season, all weather versatility. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Outer shell constructed in 500 and 2000 denier Dupont Cordura MVS Mega Vent Panel System at front and back Extended length 12 arm vents Waterproof, Thermolite insulated two stage liner jacket Removable CE approved Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector Cool mesh airflow lining Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows and waist. Comfort neoprene collar insert 3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back. 8 connecting zipper for pants Seven storage pockets Two Stage Waterproof Liner Jacket - Sturdy wind and water proof rip stop nylon shell with removable Dupont Thermolite insulation, rib collar, two water proof pockets and interior cell phone pocket.

Bought this jacket for a 7 day ride through the Alps where we anticipate variable weather conditions in the run of a day. Although not road tested yet, the dry run shows all the claimed features of quick adjustability, versatility with the layering capability and safety features.
I wear an XL in most clothing and infrequently a 2XL depending on cut. I went with the 2XL in this jacket and it fit perfectly. I went with the hi-vis color for safety purposes, but it still looks good, even the wife likes it. I expect it will perform well. The on-line videos were extremely helpful in making my choice.
I will post another review in September after our ride.
Yes, I recommend this product.
