We measured and tried on a selection of these pants and developed a size chart to help you choose your size (see below). We list a range of waist sizes because the pants have elastic panels in the waist. Also the waist has side adjusters so you can tighten up the waist size by a good margin.
These pants could be used as overpants or just as pants (over underwear), so I’d recommend you put a tape around yourself just below the navel to check for size. Everybody should add about 1” to allow for the hip armor thickness and if you plan on wearing the pants as overpants, then add about two inches to whatever measurement you come up with. For most people, the size you get from using the chart will most likely correspond to a size bigger than what you might pick in men’s clothing.
For example, I measured my own waist just below the navel at about 38” and in adding 2” for jeans and armor, the chart tells me to pick an XL, which has a max waist of 40”. In jeans I wear a 36”, so this is a good illustration of why to take an actual measurement when fitting motorcycle pants. Oftentimes jeans are “vanity sized” and also most men are bigger at their waist (just under their navel) than at their hips where most jeans ride.
I found the inseam of the pants to not vary much. In the smaller sizes, they were about 32” and in the mid-sizes, about 33” and then up to about 34” for the largest sizes.
The pants have adjustability of the knee armor height (independent of inseam length). Velcro allows you to set the armor in different spots and you can check how the armor feels on your knee when you are sitting on the bike and decide which position seems best. Neat!

Our Two Cents
I can see these REV’IT! Factor 3 pants being used by all kinds of riders. The overall design is simple and the pants have some features to help you if you want to use them as overpants, but at the same time, they are fairly trim so they could be worn as “stand alone” pants as well.
On the lower legs there are side zippers that come up just below the knee that will open up the lower leg and allow you to step into them with shoes or boots on, which makes them useful as overpants. And the waist is built with a lot of adjustability so they’ll work over clothes or not. A good portion of the waist band is stretchy and there are straps and buckles on each side to snug things down. I’d recommend you check out the optional Strapper Suspenders. You can easily attach those and you’ll find it helps a lot to keep the pants up on your waist, particularly when used as overpants. And they’ll make wearing the pants super comfortable. You can keep the waist belt comfy, but still the pants stay up! I’m a fan.
These pants have a very typical arrangement for climate control. The shell is solid textile and the pants have a nylon liner. And between those two layers is the waterproof membrane to make them waterproof. Also, there is a nice and comfy removable thermal liner for cold weather. A fixed liner like this will work great to keep the pants waterproof, but it also means that the pants will have a limited comfortable temperature range. I’d say these will work up to mild temps and below, but not in hot weather. And of course they’ll work great in wet weather.
The pants come with CE hip and knee armor, and as I mentioned in the sizing advice, the knee armor is adjustable for height by about 1/2” up or down from the neutral position. Just set it and forget it. One other unique feature is the button at the waist. It is more like a slide lock mechanism, so once clicked in place will not pop open like an ordinary snap. What a good idea! Take the link to see our feature photos to see what I’m talking about.
When you go through those pics, we’ll also show you some other incidental features such as the very substantial hip and knee armor, the knee armor height adjustment, pockets, etc. I really like these pants and think they’ll work for a whole host of uses, and given the quality and the sturdiness of the armor, I think they are a good value as well. :: Paul, 03-13-15
NOTE: REV’IT! has announced a running change to the set-up for hip armor. The original pockets were compatible with the Seesoft Hip Protector RV01. These have now been updated to accommodate the Seesmart Hip Protector RV33. The changes are effective according to the following production runs: Factor 3 as of QPO160018. The QPO number can be located on the underside of the long garment tag inside the pants.
