Dainese D6 Riding Jeans
Good pair of riding jeans.
Great pair of jeans so far…can't say that I've fallen on it, so can't tell if they hold up well or not. That being said, the denim seems relatively thick. Here are my overall thoughts:
Thick denim which seems it won't tear easily.
Kevlar woven into material, meaning not as bulky with extra Kevlar padding.
Nice colour and true to size waist fit.
Length is a little on the long side.
Not as 'slim' fit as I'd like it to be…i'd even consider them straight to boot cut (looks wise).
Only comes in 1 color.
Overall, the price I paid for them makes it a good buy. Just wish it was a slightly slimmer fit pair of jean (like in the pic).

I ordered a size 38, waist is a little loose, but a belt fixes that, i have really big thighs so I needed the bigger size.
I find that walking around the are a bit too long, but once on the bike they are fine. At the moment it is a bit hard for me to swing a leg over, but it doesnt bother me since i know they will break in atleast a little,
I really do like the style, and I'm glad I made the purchase.

Awesome riding jeans, a bit pricey in my opinion.
I really love these jeans, I wear them on every ride. I wear Dainese under garment armor with them and I feel much better compared to when I wear any regular pant or skimpy armor. The jeans are heavy and have held up well so far, the quality is high. They look really awesome on the bike, but they do look a bit strange just walking around town. I can wear them like any jean honestly, and they're just a little hot without some air flow. These are a great riding jean, maybe one of the best options right now. The only downfall is the price, I feel that they're really only worth $175, the extra $25 is for the Dainese brand name. I wear a 28 in Levi's and I fit into the size 28 perfectly, and I didn't need to hem them.

These pants are attractive looking, very thick, and true to waist size. The inseam is 38 in. They feel like they will provide adequate protection, but they are made in China. On the bike they are comfortable, but can be tight around the knee/calf.

A great pair of riding jeans
The only thing that is missing is the hip and knee impact protection but it's better than riding in normal denims. A great product - looks good on and off the bike and the fit is true to size.

Good luck throwing a leg over!
The appearance of this product is great. The average normie would never guess the level of slide protection they offer over standard denim.
In my experience riding in these jeans:
Slide protection (yet to be tested)
Lack of comfort while on bike
Exceedingly difficult to throw a leg over tight seat / crotch / knees (even with proper sizing)
Even when worn higher on the waist, getting onto my sport bike is challenging. My seat height is around 33 inches, so this may not be as big of an issue for some riders. I am 6'0" 220 lbs. and am wearing a size 37 in this pant. Getting on my bike in other more relaxed fitting kevlar reinforced jeans is as simple as lifting my leg over the bike. In this pair I need to pull the pants up to my navel then do a strong air kick otherwise I get stuck on the pillion. Even a person with smaller thighs may still have the same difficulty.
But hey, I guess I could just jump on the bike from behind like it was a horse!
I am not sure how I would even get on my motorcycle if I had a full tail bag. Seriously. Yikes!

Just what I was looking for...
Wanted a kevlar jean without all the graphics and flash. Found these and they're perfect for what I wanted. Fitting was true to my regular jeans, but perhaps run a little longer in the legs (likely by design to keep the cuff down over the boot while in the riding position).
Material is pretty stiff compared to a regular jean, but perhaps that's to be expected. I had a hard time kicking my leg over the bike the first number of times I wore them. The seam at the crotch hangs low and can restrict leg movement, I noticed. This has improved as they've broken in though. Do not expect to fit a lot of anything in the pockets.
They do not seem to allow a lot of air flow, however, I would expect this from a materials that's supposed to save my skin if I find myself sliding on asphalt. They also seem to conduct heat much more than a regular jean, as I've noticed tremendous heat sensation on my thighs while sitting stopped, when the bike is running only slightly hot. This is not apparent when I'm in regular jeans.
Overall, I'm very happy with them.

Looks like normal jeans. The beautiful kind
Quality is the word I think. Dianese quality and design at its best. The first time i saw the insides of it i thought "Where is the kevlar?" You cannot see it. There are reinforcements in the knee, hips and that is all. As I did not "crash and burn" yet I cannot tell you how they go abrasion wise. I really do not want to know it :-) Its kind like insurance. You have it, you dont want to use it, but if something happens you fell glad you have it. Other than that the number was a little bigger than the specs in revzilla. If you are more skinny get a half number less!
