Dainese D-System EVO D-Dry Pants 4.5 5 16 16
Fairly comfortable and full featured I bought these pants to compliment the Dainese jacket I already owned. The 360 degree zipper fits my jacket perfectly. As for the features, you do get what you pay for in this pair of pants: great protection (except very little at the hips), breatheability for warmer days, plus the wind blocking, water resistant liner for harsher weather. Not great for visibility though as it's black and grey, but that's not why I bought these. The size chart was also spot on. I love the fit of these from a style perspective. As for comfort, it gets a 4 out of 5. A bit pricey compared to other comparable pants, but very high quality and worth it IMO March 9, 2015
A bit expensive, but well worth the money I bought these pants last season, wore them through pouring rain, searing heat, cold mornings and 14 hour days in the saddle. Great ventilation with the fold down flaps, but on really hot days, they can get a bit steamy. The material is mostly waterproof, so I really never needed to put the d-dry liner in, which I found fussy to put in anyway. Great pants! February 21, 2015
Nice year-round pant I bought these specifically for cold weather so that's what the bulk of my review will focus on, but these have tons of ventilation so I'm sure other reviewers will speak positively of their qualities in the other three seasons. For winter riding, I've found these to be a really nice pant. I've worn them at highways speeds (around 70 - 75) down to sub-35 degree temps and they do a good job of blocking the wind. On the coldest day I rode the temperature was just above freezing; I wore a cheap pair of Champion thermals from a sporting goods store underneath, and my legs were toasty warm on a 40-minute ride at a variety of highway and surface-road speeds. The attachment zipper almost mates with the one on my Astars Gunner jacket, but it's not an exact match so I decided to just forgo it, and the height of the waistband combined with the length of the Gunner gives fine coverage and no wind gets to my lower back even in a tuck on the Daytona. One thing to keep in mind is that these do appear to be made more for the touring crowd rather than for sportbikes. While the fit is great in terms of length and around the waist, getting my relatively long legs bent enough to get my feet onto the 675's rearsets is a bit of a pain, and my movement feels more limited than in jeans or leathers. The Daytona's not really my bike of choice for freezing-cold weather anyway, and hopefully these will become a bit more flexible as they break in, but for those of you who are thinking of these for sport riding in the warmer weather, it's something to think about. Overall, though, they do the job I bought them for - they are super-protective and keep me warm no matter how cold it gets so while they are not the least expensive option out there, they were still a good buy.

Great purchase! This was my first purchase on RevZilla, and I'm not disappointed. My first issue would be with the length of the pants, that I feel is a little bit on the short size. Not sure if this is due to the knee protection. The waist is perfect though, so I decided to keep my size 48. Other than this, those pants are super comfortable, have a clean cut, and without the waterproof layer, are great to ride in the 80s, even if at low speed (in town) November 24, 2014
comfortable and nice fit I am 5' 8" 165 lbs and the 50 fit perfect. I wear 33 inch jeans at the waist and thirty on the inseam. The knee pads are in the right place. They are a great sylish non flashy pant.The length issue was non existent on the inseam November 23, 2014
Great Pants! The painstaking truth of the matter is that you will most likely have to try on a pair of what ever you decide to buy and see if they fit. I tried the AGV Sport Telluride H2O Vented Pants and the Tour Master Flex Pants and was not satisfied with the fit or quality of either. The Dainese D-System Evo D-Dry are above and beyond these others when it comes to materials and workmanship. The knee armor is especially more substantial and properly aligned. I'm 5'8"/160lbs and got the size 48, which are perfect for me. These are very comfortable, quality pants. October 26, 2014
Good protection but short for me These are great pants, but not long enough. If they were designed with stretch panel crotch and elasticized knees they would be long enough. Or if they came in 48 long, the size would be perfect. The knee and shin protection is better than other textile pants that I tried, but as others have noted, the hip protection is mediocre. They small and intended to protect the lower pelvis, but they don't cover the right spot on me. Because the hip pads are thin and almost unnoticeable, making them large enough to protect the upper pelvis would be welcomed. I didn't test the waterproofness, but protection from cold air is good. Riding in 100 degree weather in Death Valley was bearable. My knees and shins were a little warm and a little sweaty behind the armor, but airflow was good everywhere else. 50-80 degree weather was perfect in these pants. October 20, 2014
Stylish and versatile, but not waterproof I've been looking to invest in quality all-season riding pants for a long time and an upcoming trip to Nova Scotia finally made me take the plunge. The reason I chose these pants was I loved the tailored fit, as opposed to usual baggy look of textile pants, the venting pocket which promised hot weather comfort and the waterproof liner in case of a downpour. Well, after 3,000 miles of temps from 60 to 95 degrees, 3 massive downpours and long days in the saddle I feel like I've really run these pants through the gauntlet. The good: The fit is fantastic. I'm 5'10" with a 31 inch inseam and wasn't sure whether to go with 48 or 50, went with 48 and it's pretty much spot on. Only quibble is that I'd like maybe an extra inch on inseam, but it's pretty negligible. Armor goes exactly where it should. The venting pocket works great in hot weather. I was comfortable into the lower 90s (while moving). It really does its job. With the liner in, you're good into the lower 60, anything below, might wanna throw on some longjohns. They look great, at least in my subjective opinion. And if your riding style is more athletic with getting off the bike, the move great with you. The bad: The biggest downfall for these pants is the fact that they don't do their job in a serious rain storm. First, the liner is a pain to put in if you're on the road, but that's true of all inner liners. But the biggest problem is that, once in, the liner only holds up for about an hour, after that, it gets completely soaked through. Cold and wet is not a place you want to be on a big trip, thousands of miles from home and hundreds of miles from your destination. The venting pocket does let air through, even when zipped up, so below 70, it gets drafty and chilly pretty quick. The liner does take care of it though. These pants are not cheap, definitely a serious investment. I would gladly recommend them for around town, and day rides where you're not too worried about massive, sustained downpours. For a longer trip, sport-touring, adv, etc where waterproofing really matters, I'd recommend looking elsewhere. July 30, 2014

Jennifer K: I'm going to start by saying that it probably depends on how you size them, but in my case, with the liner I can comfortably wear long underwear for colder days, and I might be able to pull off a pair of jeans, but I probably wouldn't be too comfortable. Without the liner, I can wear them with pretty much whatever I like as long as the waist still fits. Oct 10, 2014

Carlos A: I do not think so, I were this for 12 days in Spain this month only in my briefs and work fine.
It will be hard to put it with pants on…

Joshua B: man, your inseam must be lengthier than the size chart shows. The pants do cinch down around the waist quite a bit and I did find the length to be generous enough to touch my ankles while sitting in the mid-tuck position on my particular bike. RevZilla returns are hassle-free if you're willing to pay the return shipping but you may be in for a custom tailored pant. Nov 3, 2014

Wonseok H: The best way is to try it on and see if it fits. I'm 125 lbs and wearing 30/32 jeans. I bought 46 it fits nicely. I would check the inseam and choose the size based on it. It is important that the knee protectors should be right on your knees. Hope this answer is helpful. Cheers! Nov 4, 2014

Jamaal T: I recently purchased these in a size 52. I am 5'10", 200lbs, 34" waste, muscular thighs. For me, while standing, the knee guards don't cover about 1/2" of the top of my knee cap, but while in riding position, they fit perfectly. Nov 19, 2014

Rene L: Watch the Dianese how to Measure video on Revzilla, its pretty accurate. They have the D-Dry Liner so when you take the liner out they do seem a bit on the loose side. If you don't need the DDRy liner go for the AirDrakes. Nov 5, 2014

Alan C asked: Looking for a Dainese pant for warm weather rides with D-Dry protection for sudden summer T'storms. Do you folks recommend these for warm (up to 90 degree F) rides? Thanks in advance. Jul 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jennifer K: I got these pants early this season and have worn them in the cold and hot (up past 80 F at least), and I will say that riding in the heat doesn't really bother me if I'm moving. If you're planning on doing a lot of city stop-and-go riding, or you're planning on stopping and not changing out of them before having a picnic or something, you will probably sweat quite a bit. If you're talking highways, etc. then opening flap on the front to the mesh below (without the liner) has been enough for me (though they can get sticky if you're already sweaty). If it's over 90 and raining, I have no idea what it would be like.

Overall, I'm happy with these, even in summer, but I haven't ridden with any others as comparison

Hope that helps.

Andrew H: I think they will be fine as long as the waterproof liner is removed and the vents are open. With the liner in, they can be pretty warm, but with it out and the vents open they flow a good amount of air for me. I've been in fairly warm temperatures in these pants and been comfortable.

Shaun T: I think you would find them a bit warm. The waterproof part is the removable liner, so while they might be cool enough with the liner out and vents poem, you would get wet. Then again, if it's 90 out you will probably be dry again pretty quickly! Jul 21, 2014

Kyle Joseph Q asked: What Dainese boot would you recommend that pairs well with these pants? May 15, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gavin B: I'm not sure about which Dainese boots that would work well but I can say make sure they are relatively slim boots at the calf and cinch up nice and tight (without being uncomfortable).

I have Alpinestar SMX-5 waterproof's and I find if I don't have them cinched up nice and tight they interfere with the shin protectors which get caught on the tops of the boots and ride up. They are reasonably bulky at the top the SMX-5's, something slimmer at the top may be a little more user friendly.

As long as I cinch them with the velcro there's no issue so it's fine, just something to be wary of. The knee/shin protectors are quite sturdy in the pants too so another option could be to look at a shorter boot.

Wonseok H: It is actually a bit shorter than I thought . I'm wearing 30-30 for my jeans and ordered size 46. It fits nicely. When I put D-Dry membrane inside, the pants and protectors fit as well. Jan 19, 2014

Gavin B: Size guide is pretty in my opinion, I'm typically a 32/33" waist and 33" leg and the size 50 fits well, slightly on the short side you could argue but only when your crouched on the bike they pull up a little bit, nothing to speak of really and the knee protectors are pretty much where they should be.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
