We measured and tried on a selection of these pants and the main conclusion was that the pants run a bit small in the waist as compared to REV’IT’s published sizing chart. The inseams however are very well represented in their chart.
To help in choosing a size, we’ve developed a chart that shows each pant size and REV’IT’s published size estimate of waist alongside our own estimate of size. We’d advise you to choose a pant size based upon OUR sizing estimates.
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. Velcro allows you 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 it seems best. Neat!
Also, the pants have a set of Velcro waist adjusters at the waist to help you fine tune the fit. We indicate a 2” range in our chart which was about the amount we judged the adjustment range to be.

Measurement tip: You’ll want to 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. For a pant leg style like this that goes over the boots, you can typically choose an inseam based upon what you normally wear in jeans or slacks.
Our Two Cents
REVIT’s Ignition 3 pants are a super sturdy leather/mesh pant that makes the perfect compliment to the Ignition 3 jacket. Being a black pant, you could match these up with any jacket really. Full armor included!
The overall construction of these pants is leather with mesh panels front and rear. This combination will work great for use in warm climates. I have always liked the idea of leather as being the material between me and a moving surface of asphalt. Historically, leather has always been THE material of choice for maximum protection from road rash. The trouble with leather used to be how uncomfortably hot it was in the summer. But this mix of leather with lighter, more breathable mesh material is the complete solution.
The material on the front of the thighs and the backs of the legs is a tight weave, very abrasion resistant type of mesh. I can blow air right through, but the weave is tighter than most mesh jacket and it feels “tougher” to me and feels like it would be a notch above for crash protection. The most crash-prone areas of the pant… the knees, hip areas and the seat are thick cowhide. Accordion material is used above the knees and below the waist band in back to allow the pants to move with you in a rider position.
These pants include a full-leg removable waterproof/breathable/windproof liner. It will block air flow from your skin and also keep you dry in case of an unexpected rain. The use of the liner will keep you comfortable in cool to mild weather. It is easy to remove and will pack away in a very small space.
These pants are equipped with REVIT’s Seeflex and Seesmart armor. Take a look at our photo gallery to see that. The armor if flexible, CE rated and is molded in a web patter that will allow very good air flow. The pants have both a long and short rear zip that are compatible with REVIT jackets. You can also use the short rear zip with their options suspenders if you like (see the link below). Really, these pants are the ultimate in protection for warm weather riding. :: 03-28-18
REVIT says: The waterproof Ignition 3 Trousers feature a zipped-in and easily detachable hydratex® membrane. The SEEFLEX™ CE-Level 2 protection at the knees and SEESMART™ CE-level 1 at the hips keep the rider safe.
