Great pant for plus-size ladies!
I bought these so I would have an everyday, warm weather pant to wear on my commute. I'm 5'9" tall and a women's size 18. The 2x fit me fine and are flattering.
The knee armor has perfect placement for me. The ventilation is great and they offer a comfortable ride in warm weather. These pants are easy to change into and out of for my commute. Basic black goes with several of the jackets I already own.

PROS: Comfortable, Great Fit

BEST USES: Commuting, Everyday riding

Great fit!
Great fit. The medium has the armor in the right place, and I am only 5'3". I have the matching jacket and they attach via a zipper in the back. Also the reflective piping in the knee area adds visibility. They fit comfortably over my jeans as well.

PROS: Great Fit, Attractive Design, Flattering, Great Color, Quality Material, Comfortable

BEST USES: Summer riding, Commuting

Great Fit for short people
My Christmas gift to me!
BILT fits me right in all the right places. Im 5 2 155 and I didn't have to get them hemmed. The knee gaurds are in the right place too!

Why such a huge price difference from on-line vs store?

PROS: Attractive Design, Great Fit, Quality Material, Flattering, Comfortable, Great Color

CONS: 10 less on line sale

Decent fit, design could be improved.
Unlike other women's mesh riding pants, these actually fit my wife. My only complaint is that the knee is too baggy, which lets the knee armor flop around to the side. The side zipper should extend up above the knee, this would let the knee fabric be more tapered so that the armor would stay where it can do some good in a crash.

One of the seams near one of the pockets failed; the material probably doesn't overlap enough there. Just don't put much stuff in the pockets - my wife's glasses case was a bit too much. They were replaced under warranty.

PROS: Comfortable, Breathable

CONS: Knees Too Baggy

Worth-While Buy
I am 5'4", 125lbs, and wear size 4 pants, these pants fit comfortably when I am in riding position, which is what matters. I wear them over a normal pair of jeans. When standing, the knee pads sag a wee bit low, but like I said, they go into proper place when in riding position. I do pull them pretty much up to my belly button and pull the velcro waist straps as tight as they can go to achieve this fit. (I got the size medium.) They go all the way down to my heels. If I were ANY shorter I would definitely need smaller size, but for me, they are just about a perfect fit. They are comfortable and don't look weird or baggy. A good lookin' practical pair of riding pants.

PROS: Breathable, Comfortable, Stylish

Fit well enough...
Good enough for a casual rider. Doesn't come with hip armor, need to buy that separately.

PROS: Comfortable, Abrasion Resistant, Breathable

CONS: Poor Fit

Knee Pads Scrape Kneeds
My wife is otherwise happy but the knee pads scraped up her knees quite a bit during a week of riding. The pads are removable but we'll try sliding something soft in there to cushion the knee caps.

PROS: Breathable

Nice Overpant
These are a nice overpant, and I use them when traveling to and from my athletic events for added protection over my uniform. The only issue is they are way too short, so when on the bike, they come up over my ankles.

PROS: Breathable, Adjustable, Comfortable

CONS: Too short

I don't see a size chart. What sizes do they compare to?
A C on Jul 13, 2016
do these come with hip protection pads?
Lark E on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. I removed all the pads for comfort. I only recall knee pads.
Is that pant good for cool weather?
A shopper on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would wear fleece leggings for cooler weather. Haven't been out in cooler tempsc yet, but that's my plan.
Can these be worn alone without jeans under them?
Kathryn H on Mar 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have worn with a pair of cropped leggings underneath. Since the material can make your legs a little sweaty where you sit.
