Below is the size chart we developed for this pant. The waist is shown as a range. The sides of the waist band are made of stretch material. The larger number is the measurement with the waist stretched open and we estimate the elastic will contract to accommodate about a 2” range.
The inseam size is shorter than average so tall riders will have to look elsewhere.

Our Two Cents
For 2021 is the NORU Kiryu Pant which is a vented mesh pant for use in hot weather. The pants include removable knee armor and hip armor is optional (see the links below to order).
Pair the Kiryu pant with NORU full mesh jackets to be comfortable in the hot summer months. Nearly the entire front of the pant and part of the back is made of fully vented mesh material that will flow air directly through to your body. The knee, seat, and hip areas are covered in solid textile material to improve the abrasion resistance and to work well with the armor. You can wear these pants with any mesh jacket you may own, but they’ll zip directly to NORU jacket models to make a suit. I recently reviewed the Kuki and Kaze jackets which both have a compatible zipper connection (see links below).
Molded rubber knee armor units are included. The armor isn’t a brand name, but it is just like “standard” armor we’ve seen in many brands over the last several years. It feels good to me and I’m sure it is functional. NORU gives you pockets for the installation of hip armor too. Just take the link below to order.
Some basic features to note: The pants have stretch material over the knees and below the waist in back to make them fit better when you are in the saddle. There are nighttime reflective strip over the knees in front and around the leg end in back. There is a zipper at the leg end to help you get your foot through the pants. You get two front zippered hand pockets in front. :: Paul, 04-05-21
