We measured these pants and compared to Scorpion’s size chart below and we find the chart to be accurate. There are a couple things to keep in mind on the fit of a pant like this. First, you’ll want to measure yourself with a tape if you haven’t done so in a while. MANY jeans are “vanity sized” which means the jeans are bigger in the waist than the size would indicate to make you feel good, so if you choose a pant size here based solely on your jean size, you may wind up with pants that are tight. Second, motorcycle pants such as these fit a bit higher on your waist than ordinary jeans, so if you have a bit of a belly you’ll want to measure up a bit higher just below the navel where slacks usually ride for purposes of choosing a size.
The legs on these pants are designed to allow for easy hemming if necessary. Each pant leg can be turned under and stitched which will allow up to about 1 1/2” of shortening. Any more than that, and you’ll have to deal with a more elaborate alteration of the side zipper, but even being able to shorten up to an inch and a half is a pretty neat option.
Waist sizes listed are the approximate maximum waist size. The Velcro side adjustment straps will allow you to snug down the waist approximately 3” tighter. When in doubt, choose larger and make use of the adjustment straps since it doesn’t work the other way around. These pants are intended to be used as overpants; if you plan to use them over heavy clothing, you may want to measure yourself over those pants, which may result in you choosing a larger size than if you were wearing them over light clothes.

Our Two Cents
These new Trey pants are pretty darn nice. The overall construction is that of an overpant, so commuters and touring riders will like the ease of putting them on and taking them off. Each leg has a long side zipper, so you can step into the pants even with boots on. That means you don’t have to partially undress to get out of your riding gear. The overall style is nice too. They are sporty with the padded raised panels on the knees and the expansion material over the knee, but being all black, they aren’t so “motorcyclish” that you’d feel funny wearing them off the bike when you get where you are going. Let’s face it, overpants can get hot, and these pants are made of partial mesh material. If you look at our closeups, there are large mesh panels above and below each knee, and from the knee down in back. So the crash-prone areas are solid textile to better protect from abrasion injury, but the other areas will let the air blow through freely. The pants also include a removable wind-proof/waterproof liner. A liner like this will allow you to widen the temp range in which you’ll be comfortable. The liner will block the wind and will be super handy on cool mornings, or riding through areas with wide temp swings (such as mountains). Scorpion says the liner is waterproof, but I’d characterize it as more like “water resistant”, and of course since the liner is installed IN the pants, your pant shell will get soaked in a rain. But for light showers or other light duty use, they’ll probably work fine to keep you dry. But if you are frequently soaked when you ride, then get some good rain pants. The pants have four zippered pockets right where you’d expect them, which is nice storage. The pants also have knee and hip armor which is pretty nice stuff (see the specs and our close-up pics) so there are no upgrades to pop for. They also have night reflectives and a zip connection for Scorpion jackets. Overall, I really like the look of these pants and I think they’ll be great for commuters in a pretty wide range of temps. :: Paul, 03-21-14
