Dainese D1 Kevlar Jeans
The sizing on these is all wrong.
Get at least 1 size bigger, I wish I can return these but I ripped off the tags.
I almost dropped my bike because the pants wouldn't allow me to get my feet on the ground.
Pinching everywhere around the hamstring and groin area.
Not recommended if you cant at least get 1 or 2 sizes bigger.

Great Style with some protections
I had never come off on the bike with the type of knee protection this pair of jeans have so i can't tell anyone how good it stacks up with other armor. I personally still would have a strap on knee protections to have the peace of mind that I get to keep my knee caps in case of accident.
With the existing pocket for knee armor, you can't really slide anything else in there that is going to save your knees. You wouldn't want to put anything in there that might hurt instead of protect!

Great riding pants !
I ordered those pants after searching for a while and couldn't get my mind on a specific pair until I came across the D1 !
Dainese always meets high standard on his products regarding quality and protection !
The only down point is that I'm 5'6 and the knee armor get right under my knee cap when I'm standing up and can become quite annoying walking around but overall, they are really great pants and I highly recommend those !

I really like the style
I love the style of these jeans, as I haven't seen anything else like them. I had to order one size larger because I've tried on the D6, and they were way too tight in the thighs. I wear a 36, and the 38 has enough room for my former powerlifting thighs, but I cannot wear these without a belt. They are very comfortable off the bike, but do bunch up a bit behind the knee on the bike. I can wear these for trips around town, but I would loose circulation in my legs if I tried touring in them. In all, they do the job they were designed for well; city riding.

Pants are great but not as good previous design
Previous design was much better. material feels like it needs to be broken in. still good quality.

Sizing has changed
These are great jeans, however, I have two other pair and ordered a new pair only to find the sizing had changed. They don't fit and aren't going to stretch out. The previous two that I bought wore a bit loose, which was nice for wearing long johns underneath.

Like these a lot, beware on length.
I'm a kinda pudgy guy who has a pretty great fitness past so pant like these are weird for me to wear. Normally I wear a 34W 30 inseam (short stubby legs).
The 34 fit me well everywhere except in length... the 34 come with a 36 inch length. Normally this wouldn't be acceptable but since I wear Icon Elsinore boots my pants fit better inside the boot than outside so I can roll these up without looking too goofy. Surprisingly the knee armor fits me pretty spot on... just the length past the calves which is too long for me.
Gonna keep them but hoping when I lose some weight that I can drop down a size or two.

Comfortable and stylish
Very good looking and strong material, comfortable to walk around in public with even with the padding in. They sit fairly low so I find myself pulling the jeans up when I get on the bike, side pockets are fairly shallow but are deep enough to hold just my wallet. The phone pocket on the front is pretty amazing aswell. Only problem i've had is 2 weeks in from wearing them the second button popped out, probably from me being too rough (you would think it would be sturdier due to it being made from strong materials)
