Another satisfied Olympia Airglide customer here.

Just don't buy them oversized. I am a 36-38 waist and thought I'd need 40 to fit over regular pants. Not so.

I took them in a bit on the sides and now they're fine. Plenty of freedom of movement. I have 2 years commuting and other riding on them now and they are holding up well.

They'll continue to hold up well. Mine were several years old when I bought them off of someone else on a forum I don't recall. I've had them for like four years now I think. The main source of wear is some of the reflective stuff has flaked off of the piping, but other than that, they are doing well.

I walked into MotoLiberty last year and one of the sales guys stopped, looked at me and said "Whoa! Those are some original airglides...did you buy those from us?"

I wear CE certified Pants!

The entire garment is CE certified, not just the Armour. I am planning on importing them into the US soon.
