I measured myself thoroughly and decided to go for xl as I normally take a 34x34 jean. I'm 6'1" and 190lbs. I knew i would need to hem the upper waist (belt portion) as I needed to have the room for calves and thighs if i had choose a large - good decision on that. The knee pads are in the right spot. The pants are stretchy. They look good. A thick 1-1/2" belt I own protects the bone at my waist.....the thigh pads are in the right spot. All in all, a good purchase.
Good fit and comfortable to ride in. Armor is in the right place. Stitching is good and the perceived strength in construction is dialed in.
I recently purchased a pair of Denim LB1s and not only do they look great but they feel comfortable to ride in as well. They are well made and quite durable which gives me confidence and assurance.
Coolest pants I own and already had so many compliments on them. My wife keeps looking at me all weird like she thinks I’m a dessert or something
