Dainese D1 Kevlar Jeans 4.3 5 13 13
Well made product except for knee rotection Im 6,4" tall and weigh 220lbs. So I'm always delighted when I find a pant that is long. This product oozes quality BUT the knee pad is useless, It offers little protection but I'm ok with it because it's not a racing pant. However no execuse for dainese to introduce a product where knee pad never fits back in. Not very well secured. Ended up not using the knee protection at all. I order size 38 for me.

Cool riding jeans I have been looking for a quite some time for nice pair of jeans that would be functional and offer some added protection compared to regular jeans. I also wanted jeans that are not too baggy and would look nice off the bike as well. Biggest turnoff for considering Dainese D1 Kevlar Jeans was obviously a price point as they are $80-$100 more than most of jeans that are out there. My First choice was Alpinestars Axiom jeans because in general Alpinestars is my favorite brand as long as I can get items that are not heavily branded with their logo (mostly their “City” collection). I really liked the fit but they run really small in the waste. I couldn’t get them in the right size and I kept getting conflicting information in terms of whether or not they would be back in stock again. Moved on to Alpinestars Logic jeans which have to be strangest fitting pants that I have ever tried on. They are long and baggy and have really high waste. I recognize that motorcycle jeans will fit generally higher than normal jeans in order not to slide way to low when seated but these jeans in my opinion were just ridiculous. I have tried Dainese D6 next. They are nice looking pants, in terms of a fit very similar to Levis 501 jeans which to me is fairly neutral in terms of how baggy they are. My problem with them was that when in riding position Kevlar knee reinforcements would ride up my leg and not fully cover my knees. Finally I arrived to Dainese D1 jeans. I felt that waste fits bit slightly larger then on Levis jeans. The legs are definitely fitting more like skinny jeans and if you typically wear baggy jeans they will feel awkward. On the flip side if you dislike most motorcycle jeans because how they look (way too baggy) you will love these jeans. I am 6”1 185 pounds and I got them in size 34. The length of these jeans is perfect if you want to wear them with the cuffs folded like the ones in promotional photos. I tried them over my biggest boots which are tall touring boots (Falco Raid) and they fit fine. In terms of temperature and “air flow”, these are heavy denim jeans and they will allow for as much flow as you would expect from heavy jeans. I have been riding with them in temperatures ranging from mid 70’s to low 90’s. I found them to be fine until mercury hits high 80’s. To me anything that offers any meaningful protection will start to feel warm pass that temperature range. Front pockets are very small, but that is partially offset by super deep back pockets. Not sure what to say about extra pocket on the right thigh. I wasn’t too thrilled with it but didn’t find it off putting enough to prevent me from getting the pants. I use it to put a bill fold with my license, credit card and couple of bills in it. Lastly the price. While looking at all the different pants I realized that all the ones that are $80 to $100 less are just plain jeans with Kevlar inserts in the seat and knee areas while Dainese D1 have Kevlar woven throughout the jeans which in theory should mean more protection. Added protection combined with great fit and pretty cool look justified higher price in my mind. As usual Revzilla folks in their store in Philly as well as over the phone have been great with helping me get another piece if gear that I am very satisfied with. August 13, 2012
Great product The waist size fits perfectly. Very stylish and very comfortable pair of riding pants both on and off my bike. August 6, 2012
Nice City riding pants They're great while out and about across town. Very cool and trendy, people do not notice the slight bulge in the knee areas with the soft protectors. Not too sure what type of protection the knee protectors will offer but it's better than nothing. Feels very sturdy and kind of heavy in a good way. The fit is true to size but a bit long - got them adjusted at a local store to keep the cool cuffs with the reflectors. I like them. July 24, 2012
Jeans saved my skin To start off, these pants have been crashed tested by me. After a high-side caused by a drunk driver, I walked away with no loss of skin. I did have contusions and a micro fracture to my right leg (impact area), but the pants kept my skin intact. the pockets are small and the pants fit very euro, but the kevlar holds up. If you want a jean that can hold up to the pavement, these have been proven. Now Dainese needs to put their CE 2 knee and shin protectors in them. If that happens, I will pay any price. July 16, 2012
Awesome pants for the city rider I took these out on a test ride last week just going 10 blocks in the summer heat. My upper body got hot in my mesh jacket, but my bottom was fine in the jeans. Completely not what I expected. The jeans are very trendy, Euro-style and the stitching adds some extra coolness. Has some knee protection which you might want to replace with something more. The fit is fine, but I wish they made the same pants for women, because I would've bought that instead. The back of men's pants are too tall for women. But this was the only casual riding pants with some protection I could buy. Obviously, they haven't been down, so I can't talk about protection. I got them so I can show up at meetings and I won't scream "biker". And they will do that job just fine. July 2, 2012
very stylish, with a few challenges I spent a long time looking for kevlar/denim riding pants and I like Dianese stuff in general. I did not expect these to either "flow" lots of air or keep me warm in the cold - and they don't. For mid temp days, they fit well and are quite comfortable and stylish. I actually like them a lot - but there are a few big drawbacks... I'm tall and thin - the fit in the waist means too short in the legs. Not a big deal with boots on, but still - I wear them off the bike too and hate the flood look. Certainly can't flip the cuffs to reveal the reflecto dealy-o. The "dagger" pocket described in Anthony's video looks cool but is actually useless - even for a dagger - just sayin'. The knee protection is somewhat flimsy. Others have said that at this price point there should be more robust armor and I agree. In summary - I like these pants a lot but they have shortcomings in knee protection and length (get it?) and don't think you'll be able to stash your phone or wallet in the dagger pocket.

Fits true to size. I wear Levi 32 waist and 32 waist in these pants fit perfectly Best motorcycle pants ever. Get two. Extremely comfortable and warm. June 11, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Charles B: Nice Jeans - would have liked the knee armer to be a bit thicker or tougher though. Going to buy the better knees at some point Apr 4, 2014
Daniel B: Like to have a fashionable look while still maintaining a certain level of protection. Mar 30, 2014
Paul V: I ride a Harley FLSTC and wanted protective pants but didn't want to go overboard to the point that I wouldn't use them. These jeans with built-in armor seem to strike a balance for street riding protection, comfort and style. Mar 17, 2014
Chadrick D: I like the cut and color of these jeans. They look "fancy". I hope the protection keeps up with the slightly over the top style. Feb 23, 2014
John N: Dainese is top of the food chain when it comes to quality and protection. Dec 21, 2013
valdon l: looks and protection. I have had a Dainese jacket for 10 years still get comments. Dec 5, 2013
Hugo G: To avoid looking like a power ranger. Great styling and fit, and woven-in Kevlar provides better protection than other jeans that only use Kevlar in specific zones. The knee protectors are nice too. Nov 6, 2013
Clay S asked: Hello I normally wear a 31X32 in American Eagle slim cut jeans, I'm like 5'8" and 150lbs and was wondering if I should order a size up with these if I'm wanting to fit something like the Dainese Hard Short underneath them? Nov 21, 2013

Rastko T: I have never tried hard shorts on so I don?t know how bulky they are. These jeans run pretty much true to size, if anything, especially in waste they run bit on the large side. They do get tapered below the knees but that wouldn?t interfere with the shorts. I was able to wear thermal underwear with them.

If you are concerned with being able to fit hard shorts maybe you should consider getting the Dainese D6 instead. They are cut little bit bigger (similar to Levi?s 501) but they are not ridiculously baggy like most of the other riding jeans.

Hope this helps.

mike n: Hi,
I ordered the normal size waist and I've been wearing them happily since getting them. Not sure if the shorts you mention would change that.

I'm tall (6 - 2) and the length is perfect for me.

Stephen R: I'm 5'9" and have a 30" waist, but wear my pants 32x32. I have these pants in a 32 and they fit just fine. They're a euro style cut, so they'll be snug around the thighs, and if you unfold the bottom you'll get an extra 3" or 4". Apr 16, 2014

Chuck F: I don't have any issue with the length and I am the same size. I guess it depends on your preference, but I like the pant leg a little longer to cover the top of my ankle high Dianese boot. Apr 16, 2014

Max A: Thanks, so do I. I just wear Steel Toes on my HD. Apr 16, 2014

A shopper asked: The sizing chart only shows one number, is this the waist or the inseam? I am a 34x36 jean and want to know which size would fit me. Feb 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Bill U: The size shown should be the waist size. I typically wear either a 34x34 or 34x36 in regular jeans, but always go with the longer sizes when it comes to riding pants or jeans. I purchased the Dainese D1 jeans in size 34 and the length is perfect (I'm 6' tall). Hope that helps. Feb 19, 2014
Reply to Bill Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Alfredo D: That size is the waist. The jeans are cuffed so there should be plenty of length for you. I wear a 34x34 and the cuff is still there...and has a reflective dainese script, fyi. Feb 19, 2014
Reply to Alfredo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Evan M: The listed size is the waist. These jeans run long and very slim. So, the 34waist is long enough for a 36inseam wearer.

Brian M: I just have the D1's, but they seem to fit true to size. Example; I wear a size 34 waist in a Levi's 501, so I bought the equivalent size in the D1's and they fit fine. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Feb 20, 2014

Matthew M asked: So in the 1k review you mentioned the "K" was for kevlar but as far as I can tell these have kevlar woven throughtout the whole jean and additional kevlar in the critical areas like seat and knees correct? how do these differ then say the 1k series.
Looking for the best combo of kevlar throughout and additional kevlar in probable contact points.

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.
