Fit well. Comfortable. Feel better wearing them. Just be gentle putting them on and taking them off. Don't fold well because of the padding so you'll need more space to store them. I hope to never actually need them. I'll just wear them most every time I ride and feel a little more secure. Be sure to get some uppers as well.

These are a good fit (small size, I'm 180, 5' 10") and comfortable under my jeans. Combined with my Sidi Fusion boots my knee and shins are protected. I had an earlier version of these pants and they lasted a good five years until the fabric started to tear around my feet and lower shins. They probably would have lasted longer if I took greater care when removing them.
I have yet to test these in an 'Off' and have no plans to do so in the immediate future : ) but I believe they would offer excellent coverage.
It's winter here in Portland, OR, so I haven't had much time to truly test these pants. True to all the reviews I've read, sizing on these is a mess. I am 6'1" tall and weight 190lbs. I ordered a size small pant and they fit like they should. My ONLY concern going in is the quality of the materials- pants themselves. Pulling them on, all I could hear was the pop and crackle of breaking elastic threads. NOT what I'd expect of a #nearly# $300 pair of pants. Once they were on and adjusted, all pads felt very comfortable. Threads finally stopped popping when I moved around, but I am already wondering what I'll do to have an extra pair of the pants #no armor# on stand-by. I hope to never need them, but I have no doubt they will give me added confidence on my rides. Had to check "would recommend" option, too early to tell if I'd recommend to a friend or not.
