Default Icon Hooligan denim riding pants.

I've had them for a day and so far I'm loving them

they feel just like regular jeans almost, one of the more noticeable differences is that they weight a bit more than your average pair of jeans, and you can feel the aramid armor in the knees of the pants, but they have a really nice feature... the crotch of the pants is this black elastic type material that breathes and stretches well so it helps prevent swamp ass/swamp crotch and also helps keep you from strangling your "boys" when you get on the bike.

I give the pants 2 thumbs up, well worth the $100... next I am going to buy a couple pairs of their standard pants since those are only $80 and look more like regular jeans.

Guys, thanks for the review.
What size are Y'all and how do they fit compared to regular jeans. (size wise) As we know regular jeans can ride up a bit on the bike.

I normally wear a 34 waist, and these are a 36 waist and they seem to fit pretty close to how the 34's fit.

the come all the way down to the ground on the back of my heels so they will probably get a little bit frayed, but I dont mind that, as far as them riding up, I think the elastic helps that a lot, they feel good on the bike, really good!

Thanks for the reviews Guys!

I was just looking at the Icon Hooligans online and thinking of buying a pair tomorrow.

www.gpbikes.com lots of stuff online, note that prices shown are in CA$ (not that there is much difference these days)

The old fashioned bricks and mortar store is worth the drive if you are in southern Ontario for any reason.

Based on your reviews, I will be picking up a pair tomorrow at the store.

I find they fit just right also long inseam so they dont ride up 34w and prob 32-33 inseam not as good as leather but better than reg jeans also baggy / loose fit could ride up in a crash but than again better than standard jeans. really comfy

I love mine, I normally wear a 36/30, and these in a 36 fit great, little long, but great overall jean. Very comfortable on the bike as well. I just wish they had a slider attachment A little baggy for sliders though really....

I bought a pair of firstgear mesh Ht overpants for the NM 100 degree weather. I just wear a pair of shorts underneath and when it gets really hot I can unzip the sides of the pants. Not as good as leather protection but at least I won't pass out on the highway...
