Richard M: I did a lot of research before I purchased these pants. I am looking for all the protection I can get. These pants seam to provide all you can purchase in protection while still having the appearance of a decent looking pair of jeans. They don't look like work pants or some European skinny jeans. Only time will tell if they are truly worth the price.Feb 26, 2014
david r: because riding without pants isn't an optionFeb 24, 2014
Mark Y: wanted a pair of riding jeans to wear when riding around town and not look like a snowboarder with my textile pants. also wanted a pair of riding jeans that looked stylish and had knee protection. I normally wear Seven for all mankind or True Religion jeansOct 5, 2013
Erick F: I wanted some casual looking gear with protection. So far I really like these pants. They fit a little long but the boots help with the length. Great pants, would recommend.Sep 20, 2013
Thang D asked:At 5' 11'', 178 lbs, and 33'' waist in regular jeans, which size is recommended?Feb 13, 2014
Erick F:I'm 5'9, 195lbs and bought the size 34. I usually wear size 34 in all types of pants and they fit a little loose. A belt helps a lot. The legs are a little too long for me but I wear the smx plus boots and it helps me not drag them so much. I'd recommend a size 32, not sure if leg size changes.Feb 13, 2014
Thanks for the feedback. I'm more like a 32.5 to 32.75. 32'' pants used to fit well until life got more interesting these last few years. Nowadays, all 33'' pants and jeans that I come across fit, but require a belt.
Regarding the inseams, I'm not concerned with its longer length since I typically purchase pants with 34'' inseams and have a seamstress hem them (I'm probably at 32.5'' to 32.75'' inseams; when will they ever carry odd-sized inseams??). From my new-found understanding of riding pants, longer is better since they don't ride up like high waters when riding sport-like bikes. Supposedly, the extra fabric helps during low-side crashes, but I may be mistaking.

By the way, I'm concerned about 34'' pants since they may be far too big. Furthermore, I fear that I will need to either gain more weight or work extremely hard to slim down my waist to fit even-sized pants....
Slimming down is more appealing, but I managed to go from a clean 33'' down to 32.25''-32.5'' in 9 months of extreme exercise-mixes from 5 hours per week of running and off-road bike-riding to well past 13 hours of swimming, workouts, and running. Perhaps, I'll need to prioritize and mix up my abdominal workouts better.
I've slacked off since, but may get back into the groove with the "scooter" and more exercise.

Holt M:Thang, I did purchase the jeans and ended up returning them because they did not fit properly. I had an issue with the rise of the pants and felt that it was too short. I am still looking for a good pair of Kevlar jeans. CheersFeb 13, 2014
My Dainese D6 Kevlar jeans just arrived. Sized at 33'' along the waist, they fit nicely; unwashed, I have merely 1 hour in them.
The fit and feel seem fine so far. I can probably fold the length half an inch higher than stock for a more greaser or rockabilly look and have less slack down there. They're definitely tighter around the legs than I would like, but far from that hipster (hot-girl-tight) look. This should keep them from riding up too far during a low-side crash.
Regarding these even-sized jeans, I will have to stay away from them since they will look very funny with 1 full inch of slack on the waist. I presume the waist will have more slack as the day goes on to break them in. Like my existing 33'' jeans, they fit well out of the launder, but requires a belt as the days goes on.
The rise on the waistline is definitely not like low-rise nor normal jeans from this day and age. They sit higher up the waist -- unless I wear a size 34'' and wear them gansta-style.
