I was looking for something to wear in the cooler weather that would give more protection than jeans. I like these but the vent on the top actually lets in a lot more air than I expected- I'm sure this makes it more comfortable in warmer temperatures. The knee pucks and the armor are comfortable. It's kind of a baggy fit around the knee. I really wish that it had at least one pocket. I wear a 34 in jeans and bought a 36. It fits comfortably. A 34 probably would have been OK if you like a tight fit.
