Robert M. from U SADDLE RIV, NJ:
I wear 33/30 jeans and ordered 36 - fit is good and I can squeeze on over jeans if needed. These fit like heavy ski pants, so not good for hanging out off the bike, but should provide good protection. Very warm with liner. I wish they had better hip padding - the pads are relatively thin soft padding. Overall very good value and I doubt you can find better for the price.

michael from LANCASTER, TX:
Wow!! What a nice pair of pants!! I opened the box and was truly impressed. I got the jacket that match ...(Item: #CF-5075). They Fit together perfect. Order a size larger. I am 6ft. 190. I normally wear a Large but ordered XL... Don't tell anybody but I put a pair of my wife tights on under the pants for extra warmth...fits like a glove. The pads are nice and in the right places on the knees, chest, shoulders, and elbows. It took me awhile to figure out all the layers of zippers. The pant and jacket even zip together in the back to stop the draft from going down your back side...Once all zipped up.... I'm glad it's in the 20's today here in Texas. Time to Ride... Jacket and Pants have a futuristic kinda look...Buy it quick...

Richard G. from TEHACHAPI, CA:
I have only had the chance to use the pants once this year, and the fit definitely runs small. I ordered the next size up to wear over my jeans. Had to send back for the next size up from that. Now they fit well over my jeans and seem comfortable, however still a bit of a chore to pull them up. I wear 33 jeans and found that size 36 overpants work for me. Overall, I am satisfied with this purchase and thank you LeatherUp and your exchange policy.

Not sure which stars I pushed but these pants were a perfect fit for me. I am a size 40 and booth 42. I can get jeans on under them or ride naked with these. Now I need a jacket and will buy mine here. I give it 5 stars

Andrew B. from CUMBERLAND, WI:
I'm 5' 7", 173 lbs, wear size 33 short jeans. Originally I ordered a size 34", way to small, I could not even zip the jeans with the liner removed. Ordered a size 38 and they worked well. I bit big in the waist, but not a problem with the velcro waist band. Length of the legs were perfect. Very happy with the Xelement riding pants. I took a 5 day 1,100 mile trip from Wisconsin - Ontario - Wisconsin. First hour of the trip it rained hard. The pants kept me 100% dry. The whole trip I did not use the liner. Early mornings were 50%, temps were fine on my trusty 83 shadow 750. In the afternoons, I would use the pant's until it got sunny and 75% , then the pants got a little warm. Suggestion when buying: 1: Sit on your ride, then measure your waist. Buy 1 or two sizes up. Better too big then two small. Very impressed so far with the pants.

Paul L. from NORBORNE, MO:
Came with cool weather liner, took out. Ordered a 38 to wear over jeans, works great for keeping the cool spring air from numbing your legs on a morning commute. Will add insulation later this fall. Ill say this, the pants fit good until you sit on your bike, then Helllooooo high waters. Unless your wearing tall boots under them your ankles will be exposed. Plenty of protection, have knee caps inside pants, kinda awkward walking around, but feel fine when riding. But seriously, they ride high, look for a pair that has a longer leg, they will expose your ankles and lower shin to the cool morning air.

Dana E. from SAN DIEGO, CA:
pants felt great, the fit was amazing, i run on the thin side 5"11 and around 140 lbs. BUT major down side was after the second day a wore them (taking my safety class :P) when i got home, the seat of the pants was Complete shredded from seam to seam. this of course worry's me, since i had no falls, and was sitting on the bike for about 6 hours over the course of two days. All i did was sit on a padded seat, and the Cordura was totally ripped. i would not recommend at all. now im going all leather, all the time.

Ordered this pants to match my Xelement Jacket and can say I'm very happy with the purchase. Construction is top notch. Fits and feels perfect. Only thing is that is hot !! Unlike the Xelement jacket that allows both the waterproofing and warming liners to come out, in the pants only the warming liner comes out, not the waterproofing. The shipping as always was quick. Thanks again Leather Up !!

Ronald G. from LOWELL, MI:
The price for the quality of pants is excellent . So far the durability has been good also ( I hope I never have to find out how durable they really are ) The fit is okay ( the knee pads and the shin pads keep riding down your leg when riding ) a hook and loop added here would help hold them in place . Overall I am very happy with the product so far .

I'm disappointed with the quality of the pants liner. One of the legs doesn't have any of the retaining loops. It doesn't effect the function of the pants, it's hard getting them off.

David W. from LOS ANGELES, CA:
I ordered these pants and the jacket that went with it. I wear my gear all the time! I was on the 710 on ramp when I notice a car speeding up behind me, the car came so close I thought it was going to ram me! I ended up coming on the outside hitting gravel and sliding 100 feet! I walked away with only minor road rash! A CHP officer came up and heard about a broken down bike when I told him that I'd slid a hundred feet his eyes went wide and he looked me up and down couldn't believe it and then shook my hand and said thank you for wearing your gear! I wish you could post pictures. I never caught the car that ran me off the road. So I say GEAR GEAR GEAR!

Philip M. from PORTLAND, OR:
All around these have been great pants. I feel safe with them on, and even in hot weather I can stay cool and not look like a clown. One major issue though, I've had these pants for a little over a month and the crotch has begun tearing pretty badly. I am only 5'11 and 160lbs, and pants shouldn't tear like this. It's too bad you only get 30 days to return items.

Mike B. from Lawrenceville, GA:
I like these pants a lot with one major exception. They are too short. I am 6'1" with a 33" inseam and when sitting on my bike, the legs hike up almost to the top of my boots. With constant shifting back and forth on the saddle, they eventually slip over the top which causes great irritation to say the least. That's a shame because they are really well made and comfortable otherwise. I wear 34" jeans and ordered these pants with a 36" waist. I have no trouble getting them on over my jeans.

Great riding pants for $70!! I am VERY please with the product for the price! I did not expect the zip out lining at all, its not listed in the item details! I haven't tried to zip the lining out to see how they will fit over another pair of pants/jeans but I suspect it will be just fine! These are my first pair of real riding pants and I am very pleased, thank you LeatherUp for the great deal!

These pants are the greatest. In the cold, they are excellent for keeping the wind from chilling my legs. The pants ride a little high to keep the kidneys warm. The knee pads are a little high while standing but not when riding. Wife says these pants look sexy on me, definitely a plus!!!!

Just got it last friday, I wear 32/33. Ordered 34 with a light cotton pants inside rode in 40 degree weather, very comfortable and warm as mentioned. The ankles were feeling little cold as the elastic in the ankle area is loose, need to have a better quality elastic band.

Purchased these pants in the summer. Definately too hot for summer riding but not that it is fall, I cannot imagine riding without them. They are awesome. I am a 33 waist so I got a 36. Fit very well over jeans. A little loose with just shorts. For the money they cannot be beat. Buy the pants!

Steve B. from YORK, SC:
ordered these for winter riding, today it was 55 degrees on the way into work at 0430 A.M. pants were OK, I was not cold but I do not think they would cut it at 40 or below, thighs were warm but my lower legs were chilled, riding a cruiser your feet are out front and not bent back like a sport bike. I am going to return them due to the plastic on the belt breaking right off. I wear a 34 and ordered a 38, they were good in legs but very big in the waist. for the price I can say they are a good value because other sights want 3x what these cost. the knee pads were right on for my legs, everything else was good, just not sure how cold I would push these pants, I will try the leather pair next, from what I am told you just cannot beat leather for protection.

Bill J. from MADISON, WI:
A very good value for the price. You can find pants that better fit your specific anatomy, or have additional armor at the hips, but you will pay four times as much for equal quality. If you have average anatomy and average riding skills, these are the best deal out there. I'd prefer a bit more reflective piping, but all manufacturers seem to skimp in this area.

David S. K. from MARSHALL, MO:
Excellent product; my only reservation is that the leg length is on the short side. I'm of average inseam, and the cuff-bottoms barely reach the top of my touring boots. The result is that I am needing to find a way to either (a) artificially lengthen the cuff area, or (b) buy taller boots (!). Still, with that in mind, these are well-built, warm and versatile.

Gerry A. from China Spring , TX:
not a bad pair of winter riding pants, but you do want to order them at least 4-6 inches bigger in the waist so they fit better when you ride with the lining in. I have a 32" waist and ordered a 36". I had to return them for a 38". No problems now and the return process was painless.

Conrad F. from Carlsbad, CA:
Comfortable & a great buy, but VERY WARM! First time I wore them with the liner; too hot for balmy fall weather. Tried without the liner, but very clammy, tried with no liner and thermal underwear. That worked pretty good, but still a bit sweaty. Now that it's getting colder, I will go back to the liner.

Donald F. from Salem, VA:
Great fit...I wear 34 and ordered 38 to be able to wear over jeans. not a problem. i am about 5' 7" and these are so great that I am getting another pair so that I could just wear long johns if needed or just scivies. With the quality that I had expected from elements, I have a jacket purchased from here and it will zip onto the kidney zipper. These pants are as heavy as 3 - 4 pair of dry jeans. Great value! These are a good layered thickness from the inside to the out. Front pockets are deep and do not come across the thigh to far that items inside will bunch up and cause the pants to be tight on them. Air flaps( velcroed) all cover zippers and seal to keep out the cold. The wrap around boot flap(velcro) is great with boots!!! The reflective piping is small and eye appealing. I did not want a bunch of reflective crap on my pants. The pads, with jeans underneath, fit corectly as I move( may ride a little low when not on bike, about 1 - 2 inches ).

I received my pants today and the quality appears to be great. I'm 5'9" and normally wear 34" - 36" pants I ordered these in 38" because I wanted to use them as overpants. They're a bit tight getting on over my jeans, but once on they feel comfy and the length is spot on.

Timothy Z. from PINEDALE , WY:
They fit OK and seem to work just fine. Removable liner means they can be more than warm enough in temperatures down to freezing level. The velcro calf tabs don't allow enough room for pants to go on/off with boots on, so it's pain to have to keep taking footwear off and on to put the pants on or take them off. It would seem some padding or armor in the hip/butt area would be useful in a fall or slide.

These pants are great, very warm and comfortable and easy to wear. They do fit rather tight though, but as advised I just bought bigger and they are fine. I normally wear a 32" waist, but I bought 36" and they are just fine. They can be worn with a pair of jeans under them OK, but also with a sweater tucked in for extra woramth. If I had got the 32" I might not have got them on, and definately wouldn't have been able to tuck in my tops.
