When i got got my air mesh pants. They were stiff, the armor was as flat as a pancake. The knee armor was too low and the butt area was too baggy. That was until I actually sat on the bike. Then EVERYTHING fit perfectly. The knee armor was in perfect postion and the butt area was no longer baggy. Now aftger a month of riding in the gear. The armor is now perfectly contoured to the curves of my body. Also the mesh is much more flexible and broken in. I get asked about the gear all of the time. Bikers ask what it costs and non bikers ask if im a fire fighter.
