In the interest of science and deeper product knowledge, I wore a pair of these from a normal upright riding position on the back of a KZ1000P to the deck at 30 mph. The impact resulted in a 50' tumble sufficient to bust my back and neck. The pants have a small "blemish" on them that I would rate as barely noticeable. My legs turned out fine though I think I did have a small wound on my right knee that needed two a slightly larger than average band aid. I have tried the knee pads but the impact they have on fit is to raise the cuff a few inches in the riding position and since I ride a cop bike, that just doesn't look cool. My conclusions are the pants work very well and I now own two pair. Good stuff. Strong recommend. (Posted on 8/30/11)
They fit! They are comfortable! They protect me better than jeans with TF3 knee pads and heavy canvas! They do not slide around on my stock BMW R1100RT seat like cordura. I highly recc. these. I wish they made a waxed cotton version. (Posted on 8/12/11)
They're actually tighter fitting than the photo would indicate--I guess loose pants don't make it for climbing trees--otoh i generally wear Carpenters'Jeans or Carhartts not Levis 501. I was very impressed with the Aero TF3 pads. (Posted on 5/6/11)
Hi, folks. These look like great pants, but not sized even close for me. I wear a 30 waist with a 34 inseam. Like "snaproll", I don't care to bunch up all that extra material, or to go to a tailor. Nice price - add some sizes, please (Posted on 12/8/10)
I reordered two pants, this time the correct size for me! After having sent the first ones to the tailor and made them fit me, I must say the second one, correct in size, are excellent fit, and as Mrs Wife said, I still manage to look good! Not bad a compliment, after a quarter of a century of marriage!!!
I took a first ride this morning to work, a 15 minute - 6mile job only, complete with the knee pads and I enjoyed them! The kneepads (from my previous order) stayed where they where supposed to be and the overall feel of the pants is even better than the "tailored" ones! Amazing! And they kept the morning breeze more or less out of my skin! Oh... and I also put on the new (free with this order!) belt! Excellent too! (Posted on 12/7/10)
Female graded versions of these pants (and other items) are not currently available for multiple internal finance, inventory, production-run minimum quantity and business reasons. (Andy adds: Making female sizes is re-evaluated every year. Hopefully the numbers we need to make these sizes available will line up soon. We appreciate your business and your encouragement.) - Customer Service (Posted on 5/26/10)
Excellent use of a tree climber's pants... but Andy...I"m tired of stuffing my hips in men's pants and then cinching up the waist and dealing with too much material there... Won't you please consider offering just one riding apparel item in true female sizing? Pretty please...sugar on top? (Posted on 5/23/10)
