Knee pads location in riding pants.
These riding pants are really cool. There is a large issue though. it is cool how they have different pockets for the knee pads. I have the knee pads in upper pocket & they are still half inch too low on the knees. I may go into them and sew a him in the top pocket.
this seems to be a common problem my friend has a pair and his has the same issue.

Put 3k miles in these. Happy with purchase. I'm 5'10" 190lbs 33" waist. ordered the large (M was not offered when I ordered) and they do run big on me but not worried about winning a fashion show. I use a belt.

ARC is great gear
I bought the jacket and a pair of ARC Battle Born gloves before I got the pants. Thanks YouTuber EverRide for the reviews on Battle Born gear. The jacket and pants fit loose, only had large in stock and the Rocky Mtn rep said they were discontinuing the line. The loose fit really doesn't bother me because it allows me to layer my clothes. Both have pretty good airflow with huge vents, we'll see how it works when temps hit 90+ later this summer. Haven't had them long enough or crashed them yet to talk about durability but they appear to be well made. It doesn't rain much where I'm at, less than a few inches a year, but EverRide had a video where he tested them. The crash padding in the gear seems adequate but I removed it because I wear Bohn gear under all my riding clothes. Love that stuff, lots of great reviews and I personally have crash tested it...maybe Rocky Mtn could look into selling it. The gloves survived my crash very well and save me from broken bones.

I purchased the ARC pants as they presented as the best value. They are very heavy, although once on the bike and and seated, they are comfortable. I would not plan on walking around in them for any length of time. I won't be doing any winter riding so the zip in liners that add bulk won't be used. The pants seem somewhat large (I followed the sizing chart), although well designed and will suit my purpose.

Pants Feedback
I like the pants so far. Swapped out the armor for B30. I'd like to see a zipper to join the pants to the jacket in the back.

Warm, protective, bad zipper sewing.
Bought these for a cool weather pant and to replace my rain pant in warm weather w/o liner. Set out on a 40 degree day for Texas from Kansas, they kept me plenty warm, (I had been using leather chaps with no liner), and later in our trip I got to use them as rain pants, stayed dry. The first time I put them on I got the water proof liner on the pant leg stuck in the zipper and could not get it out, finally I asked a friend to work with it and he got it unstuck, then later I noticed the stiching for the zipper in the waist had come undone. I will see if my wife can sew it back together, hate to return them for just that. Overall I liked the pant, at first they seemed really baggy but I got used to them. The pockets are great for wallet access for fuel stops. I am 5'9" 165lbs. And ordered a 32. Length is good and waist is spot on for me. Kinda tight to get over the hips but once past that fit is good.

Long Inseam
These are very well built pants, but there is not a lot of choices for inseam length. I ordered waist size 42 pants and they fit great in that area. The length (inseam) was measured at 38 inches. There is no way to have the pants tailored. The knee guards were also in the wrong area due to the length. I had to return this item, but they seemed to be an awesome product.

Just too baggy and big
I was excited to receive these, they seem to tick all boxes I was looking for.
But, they are simply huge. I wear 31 waist levis, and 32 slacks.
I orderrf the 32 and I am swimming in them. Perhaps for use as an over pant the sizing with thermal liner is OK, but as a pair of stand alone pants they are huge. I doubt the size 30 will be much better, except in the waist. I swear you could fit two of my legs in each pants leg.

Great match to the jacket.
Pants are bomber and have kept me dry in massive storms and mud. The ventilation isn't bad but I feel it could be better. I've had 2 problems with mine and I fixed them both. To me they were minor problems and the value and performance drastically outweigh the cons.
Problem one is that I'am only 5'10" and while the legs are the right length the knee pads aren't any were close to my knees. The top is well below so the built in knee pads are worthless for me. I have a nice set of strap on knee pads so I wear those instead and they also have less chance of twisting off and exposing my knee. Luckily the factory padding is removable so its not an issue.
The second issue I had was I couldn't seem to keep them up when riding aggressively offroad. The would start working there way down and either leave my lower back exposed or make it hard to get off the bike because the crotch had dropped down. A pair of 2" wide suspenders solved the problem and made them work perfectly for me. I haven't crashed in them yet but they seem super durable and I have no doubt that they will give me as much or more protection then any of the more costly options.

Great for over-pants when ordered one size up
I wear these over jeans on my supermoto commuter in cold weather and they're great, even with the liner installed. I wear 32" jeans and these 34's serve that purpose perfectly. I'm not a fat guy though, so may be tough to do that if you're a chunky fella.

I'm average height at 5'10" and the knee pads are in perfect place when the upper pocket is used. They're supposed to sit a little low when walking around, then come up to the perfect position when riding in the sitting position.

I see you offer the pants in 32" only in Gray. I want to buy a matching set in black, do you plan to offer the pants in 32" in black? TIA
Perry C on Mar 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have sold out of the 32" in black. We will not be getting anymore at this time.
What's the inseam of the 36" waist?
Derek M on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I just measured my pair from the seam at the crotch to the bottom of the pant leg they measured 34".
Are the Black 34" completely discontinued? Pretty disappointing if I can't get pants to match the jacket I just bought.
Rob C on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I checked into this and it looks like we are currently out of stock of these. However, we won't be getting more in for another 4+ months. I do apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
If I wear pant size 32”(30 if it’s elastic), should I get these in 34?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wear a size 32 I got these in 32 and they fit fine
Are the pants cut to fit over clothing or are the sizes cut for no pants underneath?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No need to wear pants inside. They re cut true to size, so if you insist on using them as overprints, you will need to size up...
Will they work with knee braces and can you wear them inside the boot like Mx pants?
MIKE S on Dec 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can comfortably wear knee braces under them with and without the thermal liner. You cannot wear them inside of your boots. They are super comfortable. I just wore them on a two day 400 mile ride across the desert from LA to Vegas and temps ranged from upper 40's to mid 80's. They are great pants.
Do the waist sizes correlate to jeans sizes or dress pant sizes ?
Because i wear a different size jean than dress pant
Art W on May 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would say jean sizesas I do not were dress pants to often, they fit true to size.
Can these pants be put in a washing machine?
Eric H on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would. I would not wash on a hot cycle but, they are pretty tough.
Personally I would pull the armor out and then check the velcro for gunk.
Do the zippered vents on the BattleBorn jacket allow air to pass through the outer shell AND the water-proof Z-Liner membrane or is vented air only allowed to circulate between the outer shell and the waterproof membrane?

Will these fit inside a boot or are they strictly meant to be over the boot? I have Sidi Crossfires.
Steve P on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't think they would fit in a boot, definitely designed to go over your boot... i guess also riding long distance in rain you would want the water to shed down past the top of your boot to your sole instead of shedding into your boot. I think you could fold them over and put them in a boot but it would be awkward.
I'm going to be riding in warmer conditions. Are these pants meant to ride in 80+ temperatures?
Marek G on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These pants can be ridden in warmer weather. You need to open the vents and take out the liner. If riding slow, you won't get much air through the leg vents and you will start to sweat (these are water proof so they only breathe through the vents. Recommend light color pants to minimize heat.
I'm currently a 36" Waist and 32-33" Inseam. I ride with moto skiveez tights all year. I have ordered other brands of pants in 38 and with the quilted liners they just barely fit in Winter. The remaining 3 seasons are perfect without the liner. How close is the Sizing with the Quilted liners? If a little room is needed should I go up 1 or 2 sizes?
Mike B on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am 36 waist and 32 inseam and bought the size 36. I have used the pants with the liner and with all the pad and there are fine. I am 6 foot tall and I use suspenders to hold the pants up better because of the extra weight of the pads and liner. Different body types may reqiuire use to get a larger size based on leg and calf size, I believe mine are normal size leg with smaller calves. I hope this will help
How does the set hold up in 90+ degree temperatures? Will it vent well enough to ditch the mesh sport jackets that I always find myself riding in during the summer? How heavy are they?

A.R.C. Battle Born Adventure Pant
A.R.C. Battle Born Adventure Pant
A.R.C. Battle Born Adventure Jacket
A.R.C. Battle Born Adventure Jacket
BEST ANSWER: Vents definitely help a lot! They're better than the foul weather A.R.C. jacket and pants by far. I rode in a muggy 90° weekend recently, and it was pretty hot still. The material is thick, but you'll be glad on cooler days, and if you go down. Mesh jacket if you have room in your luggage would be fantastic, but for me I like having one set of riding gear. Battle Born is a fantastic option for not packing extra riding jacket. In hot weather I just wear cool moisture wicking tank top underneath, and if you stay moving it's not bad with vents open (esp if you have a well vented helmet). Highly recommend this jacket/pant combo. The thermals make 30's° riding a non issue as well.
Will they fit over Dirtbike boots?
Stephan R on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yup, they fit over my Alpinstars 7's perfectly. You can have them as tight or lose as you want around your boot too.
Do the pants and jacket zip together in the back?
shawn w on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They do not zip together.
What suggestions do you have for suspenders for these pants? Do they have integrated suspender attachment points?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They do not have integrated suspender attachment points. I believe it was mentioned to buy one size bigger, which I disagree with now that I own the pants. I bought 38's and 36' would have done fine. The pants do have some thickness to them. Not sure how a clasp style suspender would work while riding and also not sure how easy it is to sew some attachments onto it.
Will the inner leg burn on pipe?
Stephan R on Nov 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: they will not melt.
Is there padding in the but area?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The pant is comfortable, has several protections and the interior is removed depending on the weather ... comes very broad
I have the first generation of these pants. For the most part they have been great for the two years I've had them except for the waterproofing. Has the water proofing been improved well enough to try these pants again?
jeremy f on Mar 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought these pants about 2 months ago. The waterproofing is very good so far, but I can't compare to earlier versions since this is my first pair. That said, I love the pants. The fit was exactly on size, they are very comfortable and fully adjustable. I ride in a warm climate, and with the liner out, they were fine.
Is the seat of the pants beefed up with ballistic as well or just the knees?
shayne s on Mar 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, just the knees. I think it is worth mentioning that these pants are pretty dang tough and, in my opinion, over built (if that can really be a thing). I have been wearing them for some months now in PNW weather and I really dig them. Again, well designed and well built.Certainly not a purchase I regret.Hope this helps.When I first got them I was concerned about how slick they felt while sitting on my seat but, after the "newness" wore off I don't even notice it now (part of it was my carbon style, seat concepts seat.)
I am looking at the grey version of the pants and jacket, how easy are they to clean? Do you wash them like moto pants?
Jeff T on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes I treat them as moto pants get simple just remove pads and liner and they clean very easily
I wear 32x32 jeans. If I order a 32 will I be able to wear them over my jeans?
Nathaniel H on Jan 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Without the insulated liner they would fit comfortably. With the liner they are a little snug with jeans. But i have been on rides both ways but im just more comfortable just wearing a base layer and no jeans.
Can anyone give me the actual (measured) inseam of the 36
' waist pant?
Patrick T on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the 36 initially. I estimate the inseam at 33 to 34 inches. I have a 30 to 31 inseam. I exchanged the 36 for a 34 which fit far better but the inseam was still too long. I estimated the 34 inseam was 32 to 33. I returned the 34s. These are very nice riding pants but the inseams are longer. RMATV should offer a shorter inseam for the popular sizes.
I typically wear a 38 waist. I want to wear these pants over a pair of jean or cargo shorts. Will I need to go up a in waist size to have these fit over shorts comfortably, or is the waist size figured into wearing them as a second layer?
Adam L on Jun 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My experience with these pants were that I ordered the size I normally wear in shorts or jeans and these Battle Born Adventure pants allow me to easily wear a layer under them. I haven't worn thick layers under them but shorts are fine. They also allow room for my knee pads that I bought separately and strap directly around my legs. There are straps on the waist band that allow you to cinch up the waist a little, or relax it a little too. Hope this helps
Will these pants fit asterisk knee braces? If not what similar ones would?
Chad H on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The ARC Battleborn pants should have plenty of room for the asterisk knee brace. You won't need the knee pads that come with the pants. I use the Bilt Charger knee guards under these pants and it is a 100% improvement. Guards stay on the knee and is very comfortable.
Are these the newest version?
Robert M on May 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are. If you haven't done so yet, check out the review video on YouTube by EverRide. I bought these pants based on his review, ARC Battle Born items are good products.
how much do these pants weigh without the liner?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I just received my size large yesterday and without the liner they weigh exactly 4lbs.
