    Anyone have any idea how BMW Comfortshell pants fit compared to rev'it Dakar (or really any other rev'it pant)? I have a pair of rev'it Dakar pants that fit pretty well but are a bit too short. I wear a size small so there is no option to get a long/tall size in rev'it pants. I'm looking at the Comfortshell in size euro 46. The rev'it sizing chart shows a 29" inseam and 39-40" outseam for size small pants. The BMW size chart shows 30.7 inseam and 38.6" outseam. So going strictly by inseam measurement the BMW pants should be the right length, but the outseam measurement says otherwise. Of course manufacturer's size charts can be all over the place too. So back to my original question: how does BMW pant sizing compare to rev'it pant sizing?

    The comfort shell pants tend to run a bit slimmer IMO. I've had comfortshell and now rev'it everest. One uses euro sizing and the other sm,m,l, etc... Contact user motodisiac (Dennis) at beach moto which is where I've gotten any rev'it stuff. He'll be able to help you with sizing.

    I have owned both.
    The Dakar pants are a higher waisted design.
    That could account for the "extra" length on their chart.
