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 Sand 3 Pants by REV’IT! are a newly updated version of their “go to” adventure touring style. These pants are made to mate with the Sand 3 jacket (or Sand 2 jacket as well). They’ll also work great with nearly any brand of jacket. These pants are VERY heavy duty and built for rugged use… and a wide range of riding conditions.
These pants will really shine in mild to cold weather and wet weather. The shell is a solid textile construction along with a very elaborate two part removable liner system. The pants have a waterproof/breathable barrier and also a thermal barrier. You can use these two liners in tandem or separately, or go with neither depending upon the conditions. We’ve broken down the pants and taken some good close-up photos you can see by clicking the “View Larger Images” link above. With both liners installed the pants should be VERY WARM. If you remove both liners and then open up the zip vents on the thigh, you’ll be able to flow some air and make them tolerable for warmer weather. Hot weather? Nah… I think you’ll want some mesh pants for the really hot stuff.
These pants zip to REV’IT! jackets, but they do have a structured waist and could be worn with any brand/style of riding jacket. The pants have both a short and long zipper for attachment to a jacket. The short zipper is used to zip to a REV’IT! jacket when the jacket’s rain liner is NOT in use. But if you are using the rain liner, you can hook the pants to the rain liner with the longer zipper. That way, the rain liner will be kept down over the waist of the pants and won’t allow water to leak in on your back side. BRRRR! Both the zippers come with the mating half, so if you use these with another brand jacket, you just pay a tailor to install those in your jacket, which is typically a simple matter.
Other likes: Check out the secure way the waist closes with a sliding lock arrangement… very secure! And then there are two very effective waist adjusters on each side of the waist to help you get a tightness that is comfortable for you. Also, I like the way the ends of the legs work. They are wider at the bottom for substantial boot tops, but then there are strips of Velcro so you can fold them over to make them more trim to fit your own boot style.
The pants come with CE Level 2 knee armor and hip armor is included too. The pants have a couple cargo pockets and two zip-close wallet pockets too, which are well positioned for access when on a bike. The Sand 3 is just a little bit better than the Sand 2’s and those were great, so I think you’ll really like this new version. : Paul, 02-14-17
