Awesome riding pants
Awesome pants. Awesome price. The pockets are low profile yet hold a lot. I’m a 32 waist, ordered a 34 and it fit perfectly. Very impressed with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC easy to use website and fast reliable shipping.

No room for legs
I'm 6'1 and about 250. usually wear a 38, ordered a 40 per reviews saying they were small. The diameter of the pant right above the knee is super narrow. i couldn't pull the knee stretch panel past the top of my knee. I guess they think if i have a 40" waist i'm going to have toothpick legs.

MSR Gear
Bought this with the jersey. First impression is that MSR mixed their designs. The jersey will be great for summer riding, but on those cool days you will need to layer to stay warm. Just the opposite for the pants. They may be to hot for the summer even with the ventilation open. First ride temp was around 40 degrees and the pants kept me warm and comfortable and as stated above I layered with the jersey.

More features/great value!
Nice pant. More substantial than a simple entry-level model as it has pockets on either side and an accordion knee that permits effortless flex and likely provides room for a big knee brace (I don't use one so I don't know!)

Great Pants, good quality
These pants have been great, have a couple of them now and they hold up great, fell many times on rocks etc and only after a lot of abuse got a small tear which held up better than expected

Good fit.
I bought the Summit pants and really liked them but the size runs a little small. These are a good replacement for them.

Great pants for the clearance prices!
Great pants for the value prices being offered right now on clearance! I would just order one size UP. If your jean size is a 36, I would get a 38 for example!

Order a size big!
Bought these on closeout, usually wear a size 38. Bought these and they were so small I blew out the zipper on the first ride. Average quality pants

This gear is tough as nails!
This is my second set of MSR Xplorer gear. High quality and tough as nails. The venting is great. . I’m sick of cheap gear getting all ripped up. This gear rocks!!!

Are these in the boot or outside?
Ryan R on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Xplorer pants are in the boot. I'd like to mention that I found them short from hip to knee and one seam across the bend in the knee is tight and tends to get into your leg. I'm 5' 10" 180ish and don't have big legs. I didn't like them.
Do these have hip pads or pockets for hip pads?
James M on Dec 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Does not have hip pads but has pockets but they couldn't be used for hip pads as they are further down the thigh.
Are the MSR Explorer Ascent pants for summer dirt bike riding, or more for like snowmobiling?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Xplorer Ascent line is MSR’s middle tier off-road gear and is meant for off road riding. They can be used in cold weather with some sort of base layer, but they're designed for warmer weather riding.
