Nice Pants I picked up these while passing through Pennsylvania.I had been looking for something to wear when not wanting to put full leathers on. These fit a little tight (Dainese) but being in the store made sizing super easy. A little warmer than just regular jeans, but I'll suck it up for a bit more protection. It does come with some pro shape armor in the knees that could be upgraded, but for now it's good. Nice heavy denim, only issue is taking them off...you have to make sure to not get your foot stuck in the Kevlar lining...as you could pull the stitch out that holds it to the inside of the jeans. Overall I like them, and they do as advertised! October 9, 2014
First ridding jeans When I saw Revzilla's review, i was hesitant to get any ridding jeans as I am very picky choosing jeans but prefer jeans to ride over leather or fabric ridding pants. As soon as I got them, I tried them on and... wow! The fit is excellent and I got a sense of protection at the same time as they are stylish and comfortable. I have wore them even on non-ridding days and they are great. August 18, 2014
Provides protection and looks good! Great pants, they look like regular jeans and non of my friends (riders and non riders) can tell their special jeans. A few things I didn't like about them: -Instead of a zipper, it has buttons. Kind of frustrating when you gotta go bad -the groin feels lower (closer to the ground) compared to regular jeans if that makes sense. -Knee pad doesn't protect outside of the knee as well. -Gets super hot during the summer. Things I did like about the pants: -Looks like regular jeans -Provides great protection for city riding and is better than nothing if you go down on the highway. -Nice heavy quality fabric.

Good riding jeans My first pair of armored jeans. I wear a 38-40 pant depending on the cut. Ordered the 40 in these with no option for length. 40 waist came with 38 length. Much too long for me. I finally had a chance to get out and test them and was very happy with the 40 (wanted them slightly loose) and the way too long, while still a bit too long, worked out better than I expected. The length allows for the curves of the riding position (Ninja 1000 sport bike) and my boots kept them from hanging too low and dragging behind/under my heels. The pads are an excellent addition, and though very thin compared to my Tourmaster riding pants armor, a comforting feeling compared to just denim. The double layering at the knees and reinforced stitching combined with the feel of the Kevlar in the material was really nice. After riding with actual protection in my Tourmaster stuff I wore regular jeans a couple times commuting and really felt unprotected and vulnerable. Never did that again, instead choosing to wear the ballistic nylon over jeans. These Dianese pants felt really protective, giving me a much more secure feeling. Did 125 miles with a passenger, loved them! And they really look great too! Highly recommend for those times you just don't want to fully gear up. I always recommend full gear (ATGATT) but if not, these are a much better option than plain old jeans. August 17, 2014
solid? When I first put these pants on I ripped a stitch out of one of the pant liner. They have more of a loose fit for me. The knee protectors move around in knee pockets. These pants are made in Italy so I expected better quality. I will keep them they are comfortable. I really don't want to test them out to see if they hold up. July 31, 2014
Very good product, comfortable, fits well. The pants fit well and seem to run true to size for the waist and slightly long in the length which is good.They are somewhat warmer than regular jeans. Very comfortable for riding.The knee pads align well and are not readily visible. July 14, 2014
Great Pants, feels like I'm wearing Levis These are terrific pants, very comfortable to wear and I feel much safer than wearing jeans. July 14, 2014
Great fit, comfortable and stylish - need hemmed Videos helped out a lot and the jeans are just as described. I am 185 lbs and typically a 34/30 in Levis... took a 34 in these. They are 1.5 inches longer than I would like when sitting on the bike... but after the first wash I will have them hemmed as suggested. Knee pad is low when walking but correct when sitting... which may make hanging out in them off the bike awkward... but that isn't how I intend to wear them. Overall... i feel comfortable in these, it doesn't look like I am dressed for track day, and I believe they will provide much better protection than standard jeans. July 7, 2014

mauricio L asked: Hi

I'm about to buy these jeans but wanted to check if you can add hip pads like the Alpinestars hell cat?
I like Dainese better regarding style but looks like the Alpinestars hellcalt offers more protection?
If I could add the hip pads I would go for the Kansas 1k.

Phillip V: Hi,

I bought these jeans recently and absolutely love them. Unfortunately they do not accept hip pads, there are no pockets for them. The Kevlar in the rear does wrap around to the front of the thigh however. While it dose not go all the way around, to cover the whole front of the thigh, it is enough to feel a little protected. The knee armor is soft armor. It's a thin piece of honey comb shaped rubber. I would trust the jeans in a light wreck / low side. They are the best fitting jeans I own also, they run true to size in the waist. Length is a little long but I roll the legs under and they hold while riding. I to debated between the Alpinestars and these. I got these in the end because I liked the idea of having the woven in Kevlar throughout the jeans, the use of buttons in the front instead of a zipper, and back pockets that both zip up!. I also have a pair of armored shorts that I wear when i head out on longer more intense rides. They make up for not having hip armor built in. Hope this helps!

A shopper asked: Which size we should to choosing this jeans if usually my Levi's size is 32/34. weist 88, hips 102? Apr 27, 2014

Joseph B: I ordered these in my usual J Crew jeans size of 34/32, and they fit about the same. The bottoms are pretty skinny, like a Boot fit Levi or Lucky. So if you wear bulky boots or have large calves, its just going to be a snug pull over your boot.
I wear Sidi boots, that have adjustable closures around the calf, and keep them snug to my leg. Nice pair of jeans all around, and the built in armor is easily removed if desired, though more than comfortable when worn.

Russell G: I would opt for the 34, or maybe even a size up. I found that comparing my sizes yielded a slightly smaller Dainese jean that I wanted, but it also depends on the cut of Levi you typically wear. Apr 27, 2014

A shopper asked: What size should I order? I'm 5'9" and 185 with thick, athletic thighs. I've tried on a pair of D6 32, 34? The waist was good but they seemed long and looked like skinny jeans. The knee protection seemed to be low for my knees. If I get a 34 waist will that help with my thighs? Mar 10, 2014

Aaron J: This is more of a skinny (thin) jean. Anthony references the 501 and the 514 in another video. You should look at the 0K jean as it is more of a loose fit. Mar 17, 2014

A shopper asked: Is this good protection against abrasion like leather? Apr 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Nep B: I cannot compare as thankfully never had to test them out ;-)
These are lined with Kevlar as well as kevlar intertergrated with the denim fabric so l would say very good protection. These pants also have removable kneepads that you cant really tell they are there, stealthy :)
They make for a nice pair of jeans to wear after you ride , for around town they are by far my favorite.
These are also cooler in hot temperatures than leather
Maybe not a direct answer but hopefully it helps with your decision

A shopper asked: I was wondering if you can provide picture of the inside showing the kevlar lining and whether it wraps around whole knee or not? Mar 30, 2014

Jason B: Don't think I can add photos here but is the kevlar the yellow part? if the answer is yes, then I don't think it wraps around the whole knee but it is heavily padded. Apr 2, 2014

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.
