Nice pants
Bought these to go with the ARC Jacket. They are a nice pant with all the similar features as the jacket. I normally wear a 34/32 jean. I bought size 34, and the waist size is fine, but as other reviewers have mentioned, the knee protection is below the knee cap when standing, even adjusted all the way up. However, the pants are comfortable, zip in liner is easily removed, lots of pockets, and are a good match for the jacket. Have yet to ride in these, so cannot comment on venting or weatherproofing.

Saved my legs!
Have worn these for a while now. Wished side zips on legs went higher and inseam was a bit longer but those are my only complaints. As for it's safety features... I did a high speed highway slide and took ZERO damage to my lower extremities! These pants are worth WAY more than their price tag! Can't recommend them enough. I will be ordering a new pair soon.

Very pleased with product.
Overall I'm very pleased with this product and would order again. The only thing I wish they had was a way of adjusting the length (inseam). My inseam is 30 inches. This is an excellent product. So far I've had them a week and have been riding in temperatures of 45 - 70 without a problem.

Needs improvement
These need some work. I wear a 34 waist/34 leg and these only come in 32 leg for a 34 waist. That being said, the size isn't the issue. They still cover all the way to my ankle. The issue is that the top of the knee guards when standing are about a half inch below my knee. They sit in place when seated but when standing they don't sit where they are needed. Also, the reviews I watched said these are good to 30 degrees in just normal pants. This is false. I had to pull over in 44 degrees and put on my thermal pants under the Battleborn pants to be comfortable. Other than that the pants look absolutely awesome and the zippers are easy to use with gloves on

Can't beat the price when it comes to staying dry.
Holy moly these things are long. The fit other than the length is true to sizing. I'm 6'4" and the knee pads are low and the ankles drag.

Never had a drop of water get through though. Tore one adjuster strap off. Zip tie fixed that side and no problems with the other side.

Getting better but not there yet
4 yrs ago I had tried on these pants and the inseam length was designed for an man 7 foot tall. I had to send them back but I did make some design suggestions along with the reviews of others. The new design is shorter by possibly an inch but still way too long. Because a man's waist is over 38" it does not mean his legs will grow to match. I strongly suggest offering a short length in the waistline of 36 and up to capture the sorely missed segment of the market.

Very comfortable fit
I just got these at the beginning of January, thus I haven't ridden my dual sport with them on yet.
They fit well, and feel very comfortable. I wish they had a way to secure them (in the back) to my jacket, but they don't. They are a heavy pant, and I feel that suspenders are a necessity with them. Good looking, and much more protection than my blue jeans.

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".
Do you plan to offer pants in 32” size sometime soon?
Ashray G on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but not at this time.
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?

BEST ANSWER: yes they do. the Z-liner is seam-sealed to the vent zippers.
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: Go one size larger if you will wear street clothes under it.
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: I use them over work shorts and pants without liner. It fits snug but I have pretty large thighs. Don’t think they were cut for over pant use but it works for me.
Will they work with knee braces and can you wear them inside the boot like Mx pants?
Mcs 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.
Oh NO... sold out on the 34” pants?
Jeff T on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I checked into this and it looks like we are currently out of stock on these. However, we won't be getting more in for another 4+ months. I do apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
When will you have size 32 waist back in stock?
James S on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we won't be getting more in for another 4+ months. I do apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
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?
Matt F on Apr 18, 2018
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?
Shannon 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.
Are these pants meant to go over your jeans? If so, do you need to order the next size up from your jeans size?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: they can go over jeans and I have used them like this with the insulating layer removed. Order your size, not next larger, I wear a 34 32 jeans and the large version is plenty long and I usually have to pull them up around the waist from time to time even though the waist is as tight as it will go
I typically wear a size 38 or 40 inch pant. Which size would you recommend for this pant?
Cole K on Dec 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The battle born adventure pants fit true to size. I wear 36” waist in my jeans, and got the 36” ARC pants which fit good. There’s Velcro straps on the side to adjust for proper fit. Loosen straps for adding under layers for cold riding, tighten straps if not using thermal layers.
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.
