We measured and tried on a selection of these pants and we developed a size chart to help you choose a size based upon your waist and inseam. The size chart below is partially ours and partially REV’IT’s chart. REV’IT hasn’t been consistent in their sizing for pants, so we have to check every model for you. The largest waist size listed in the chart are with the waist adjusters full open. The waist size adjustment straps work pretty well to give you size adjustability… we estimate about 2” as the range indicates.
As you can see in the chart, the pants are available in regular, short and tall inseam sizes, so choose the inseam you normally wear in slacks or jeans. The pants also have adjustability of the armor height (independent of inseam length) which can be accessed by pulling each leg inside out (see our photo gallery for a pic of this). 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.

Measurement tip: With a style like this that MAY be used as an overpant, you’ll want to measure your waist over the clothing you intend to wear under the pants. And measure yourself fairly high up the waist because protective style pants like this are cut to ride higher on your waist than a lot of modern jean styles (so relying just upon the size jeans you buy might result in motorcycle pants that are too small). Right below the navel is about the right height on the waist for measurement.
Our Two Cents
The Horizon 2 Pants by REV’IT are new and improved for 2017 and are the “other half” of the Horizon 2 jacket. Just last week, I finished reviewing the Sand 3 pants, which are in the same ballpark as the Horizon 2 pants with regard to price and overall function, but these Horizon 2 pants are constructed a bit differently with regard to ventilation and being waterproof. The material used in these pants has the waterproof/breathable barrier bonded directly to the back of the outer shell fabric. You’ll get a pant that won’t get waterlogged as with other types that have a separate (removable or non-removable) barrier that is installed BEHIND the outer shell material (this is the way the Sand is made). The textile material along with the bonded waterproof barrier feel VERY heavy duty and probably compare with the Sand pants with the waterproof layer included, but the overall bulk is a bit less since there aren’t two separate layers involved.
When I reviewed the previous Horizon pant, I cautioned about the integrated waterproof liner with regard to venting… basically there was none. But with this new model, I see a pleasant surprise. There are actually two GIANT vents on the thigh to grab some air. They are hidden below flaps that can be opened and secured back to expose the vents to the wind. It is a similar venting setup that I’ve seen on past REVIT jacket designs. It is really neat! Also, I’m loving the little magnetic holder that is used to hold the flap open. It works so well, you can practically toss the corner of the flap toward the magnet catch and it locks into place. The enhanced venting is a welcome feature and one that will make these pants useful for most of the year. For colder weather use, close up the vents and use the removable thermal liner to add some insulation. That liner, along with the substantial outer shell layer should do quite well in winter.
Other things: the pants are somewhat trim in style and made primarily to be worn over underwear or light clothing. They could be worn as overpants, but pay attention to the sizing advice above for that. The overall quality of construction and materials with these Horizon 2 pants is just great… as good or better than anything we sell. Some other nice features: a very good adjustable waist and a high-quality hook/snap waist closure (take a look at our close-up photos to see all these in detail). The pants have very large reflective patches so you will be visible at night. There is a zip-down and Velcro-adjustable construction at the ankle so you can make the pants fit well over boots and shoes and you can adjust them to keep them off the ground. REV’IT offers both a short rear zipper and a longer zipper for connection to their own jackets. The pants come with the mating halves of those zippers which you could use to adapt a non-REV’IT jacket as well. Overall, a very nice pant that will work perfectly with the Horizon 2 jacket, or any jacket for that matter. You’ll like the high-quality tailoring, the extreme waterproofing with less bulk and the thermal liner. :: Paul, 02-27-17
