Dainese D-System EVO D-Dry Pants 4.3 5 9 9
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
Excellent fit and function Purchased these for both my wife and myself for a spring tour of Ireland. We had some rain everyday but one and these performed beautifully, keeping us both dry and warm. Temperatures ranged from 47F - 65F and these were perfect with the liner and could have gone colder, but definitely would have needed to removed the waterproof liner in warmer conditions to increase the airflow. The fit was nice and slim so even my wife still felt good in them. July 28, 2014
Good looking pants As a short, thin-build person (5'6" 135lbs), its always hard to find pants that fit (armor in the right place), and look halfway decent. These tick both boxes (size 44). Very satisfied with the fit and look. Wore them in 85f degree weather without the liner and was very comfortable. Two notables: 1. Hip armor is a useless, very thin pad, non-removable and its not in the right place on the hip. Plan on buying armor shorts. 2. The knee armor goes all the way down the shin. This is cool but if you wear usually your pants inside your boots make sure you a have a little room in the calf of the boot to fit the pant armor. Definitely the best pants I've owned. July 21, 2014
Well made, functional, and comfortable to wear. I decided to push the $300 price point and get these, though I was tempted to get another (Alpinestar) pair that were less. So far, I'm ok spending the extra money. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs, got the size 46 and they fit perfectly (though they'll fit a bigger waist). I'm impressed with the construction and material, details and features. The venting is excellent and, even living in New Mexico, I can stretch these into four seasons w/out the liner and utilizing the venting panels. I wanted to get pants that had decent protection, and the knee/shin inserts are solid and cover down to almost my ankles. Only draw back are the hip pads which seem thin and would do little to protect the hips. Still, these are high quality pants. No regrets. June 30, 2014
great fit and comfort i had a pair Klim's that were baggy, heavy, and never felt great about the protection in the event of a spill, plus they were over $500. these feel light, the fit is stylish but very comfortable, and the protection is right there on the knees. love these pants. riding ducati hypermotard June 9, 2014
LOve these PantS!!!! Everyone says these pants fit small. However I found they fit exactly as Dainese specifies, keeping in mind there all different shapes and sizes of people out there. Im 5'7" 145 (more European size of a human)purchased size 44 i have a 30" waist. These pants fit perfect in every way! Hope this helps any of you playing the size game. These pants breath great offer moderate protection bout as good as you get unless you are wearing leathers. I ride them without the liner in 80 degree weather. liner in for spring and fall. June 6, 2014
fits perfectly i had a pair of over pants that were to baggy before this so i decided to just get regular pants and what a difference it was. these have a nice waterproof liner on the inside that can easily be removed for hot days. the knee/shin pads are a nice hard plastic with foam cushioning that i'm sure will help tremendously when it come to dropping.

Very well constructed These pants are very high quality and comfortable. I wear a size 33 waist in jeans and the size 52 was just perfect. February 3, 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…
Great pants to ride fully waterproof without the inner part...

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
Reply to Wonseok Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
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.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross 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.
