A shopper asked:I am confused with the sizing: the size chart ranges from 44 to 60 whereas the available size ranges as low as 28 to 44. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs the size chart indicates I choose a size 46 but it's not available. Is it waist line the "choose a size" referring to?Sep 5, 2013
Matthew F:I think the size chart is in European sizing, and the available sizes are in American sizing. They were when I bought my pants. So I'm guessing the "choose a size" refers to the waist size you wear in American pants. A 46 in European is a 30 in US. So if that's your size you should be good. Keep in mind what reviewers have said about the way they fit, otherwise. They are really nice pants, enjoy.Sep 6, 2013
Ignacio Muniz F:Yes, it is a little bit confusing. I went to the Dainese web site to figure out the right size. the sizes from 28 to 44 INCH correspond to sizes 44 to 64 TG. I am 6'1" and 195 lbs and got a size 34 which corresponds to 52. It fits perfect. Your size 46 corresponds to 31 in the revzilla web site.Sep 6, 2013
Chris KStaff:Good catch, we just updated the sizing chart for you! What you were seeing was the traditional standard EURO sizing, when the drop-down menu is actually referring to jean size. These are quite true to size, but do not stretch in over time due to the inclusion of Kevlar fibre.Sep 6, 2013
Carlos M:The sizing available off the pants refers to the waist size. Example size 36 means a waist of 36 inches and inseam 36 inches. Size 44 means a 44 waist 44 inseam. The dainese European sizing has nothing to do with the sizing listed for these pants.Sep 6, 2013
A shopper asked:Will these Dainese D1 Kevlar armor ready jeans truly provide me with enough protection if I plan to ride daily while commuting to school (a lot of highway riding) or should I look for something with more protection? A $200-$500 jump in price is quite a bit, as a new rider, I'm finding it difficult to decide should I start small scale, or am I wasting my money, if I'm going to decide to upgrade to better protection more expensive gear in the near future. Thanks for the advice.Sep 23, 2013
Anand K:The level of protection you want is kind of personal. I have not gone down in them thankfully, but these jeans will definitely provide good abrasion protection. I can't remember the exact model, but I do have a pair of the dainese undergarmets with hip and knee pads so I can add some joint protection. Another option for commuting would be over pants with fully articulated knee and hip gaurds, but I personally think these are a decent compromise - and you can wear them all day, despite their thickness. My 0.02 these definitely cover you for abrasion even if the kevlar is only in patches. If you really want track style protection for the commute get overpants.Sep 25, 2013
Wayne N:I commute to work 75 miles a day and ride hard on the weekends in groups. I recently purchased D1's after a friend went down with regular jeans on at over 120 MPH on the drag strip. I feel the level of protection from the D1's alone is "somewhat" adequate. I also ordered the Dainese Kit J knee guards, and I plan to order the Dainese hard shorts in the near future. With the knee guards and hard shorts I feel these will provide you and I adequate protection. I currently ride a BMW S1000RR but have low sided 3 times at the track on my previous GSX-R 1000 and know the importance of good protection!Sep 25, 2013
Brian B:Well, luckily, I have not gone down while wearing these jeans. But when you get them in your hands and/or put them on you can really feel how much tougher they feel than normal denim jeans. I was really surprised by the added confidence and feeling of safety I experienced while riding in them. Also, they feel and look good when you're not on the bike. In my opinion, these jeans are a great investment. You won't be sorry.
Hope this helps.Sep 25, 2013
Alan R:I like these jeans for my day to day street riding. I also purchased the knee guard, which adds protection to the knee and shin part of the leg. The upper part of my thighs don't have nearly as much protection, because I don't think it's accessory for my daily riding. I started with these and I'm happy with my choice.Sep 25, 2013
RevZilla:Officially, only the Kit J Knee Guards will interface with the D1 Jeans correctly (there's a little pocket that they go in). There's no reason why you couldn't use another type of armor, but our guess is that you would have some issues with it fitting properly. Since we haven't been able to try out these new jeans yet, we cannot say with certainty whether or any other type of armor would fit, but we know the pockets are pretty small - so I would be wary of trying to fit a different brand of armor in them.Jan 14, 2013
A S asked:OKay, there's D1 Kevlar jeans, D1 Kevlar armor jeans, and D1 Denim jeans. Can someone lay out the differences here??? I'm looking for best protection in an accident on it's own without any under or over garments, minus underwear of course, hahah! I'm sure crapping my pants will also provide a layer of protection. Lol.Sep 26, 2013
Christopher G:I bought the D1 Kevlar Armour Ready jeans and I bought the Dainese knee pads to put in them at the same time. i actually went to revzilla's boutique in philly and tried them on.
I'm 6' tall and 165 lbs. I bought a size 31 waist that are 34 long. they fit perfectly. that said, i'm usually a size 32 waist but apparently they run a little big.
the kevlar in these jeans is actually interwoven right into the denim so you don't see those yellow panels like you do in other kevlar jeans.
they are armour-ready which means they have pockets in the knees to put knee pads in. you gotta buy them seperately, which i did...
i can't speak as to the difference between these and the non armour and D1 denim but i assume that the denim is just denim (i.e. no kevlar) and that the D1 Kevlar is the same as mine but without the armour pockets.
the pockets are cool because they are truly adjustable and have a pretty wide range so if you have longer or shorter thighs you can adjust accordingly.
i washed them once in cold water and left them out to air dry, per the instructions they gave me at the shop. btw, there's a woman at the boutique whose name, if I recall correctly, is Kat. she knows more about riding clothes than anyone i've ever met.
i rode about 200 miles on the highway in the D1's, with my leather chaps over them, and I was totally comfortable. the next day i had to take my bike to the shop and i put the jeans back on and ran around town for a bit before i actually got on the bike and dropped it off. they were super comfortable for walking around but...they will be pretty warm in the summertime.
i've been riding for most of my life and i was always the idiot who just rode in regular denim jeans...that is until my first major accident last summer. i got BANGED UP hard and ended up in the hospital. if i had been wearing these D1's, things would have been a lot better for me.Oct 1, 2013
I used to be in the cycling business. Getting cycling clothing from Italy was a test of patience. Orders eventually arrived, but never everything you ordered and always late in the season. Forget about ordering more inventory later on. Shop owner resorted to recruiting an Alitalia flight attendant as his importer / middle man (woman)! Worked much better.
I'm planning on ordering these pants as soon as the come in. Hopefully soon because my neighbors give strange looks every time I ride by them in my underwear!Apr 16, 2013
RevZilla:The Dainese D1 Kevlar Armor Ready Jeans feature a short row of individual buttons for frontal fly closure. There is no rear fly, thankfully, so distinguishing it as "frontal" is a moot point.Mar 6, 2013
A shopper asked:I bought a pair of the Dainese D1 Kevlar Jeans last year but did not get any knee armor. I would like to buy some now but am unsure if this Kit J will work. They look awfully big for the pockets in my jeans. I notice the D1s are now titled "armor ready" for the Kit J. Do you think the knee armor will fit in the jeans I already have?Feb 24, 2013
RevZilla:Sadly, no, the Kit J Knee guards will only work with the newer Armor Ready D1 jeans. They have different attachments and shapes. Your best bet would be to rock a pair of Dainese Knee V guards strapped to your legs underneath if you have the original D1's.Feb 27, 2013
