Just like Levis 501 These jeans are almost identical to my favorite pair of Levis 501, obviously slightly heavier and thicker due to the protection and knee pad pockets though. They are crazy comfortable compared to my Cortech pants I use for long distance trips, and even when compared to regular jeans they are great. Highly recommended. March 24, 2015
Inseam only one length! Only wore them once as I had to cuff the bottoms because they are a 34 length and I wear a 30. I am waiting to get them altered so that they fit better! March 23, 2015
The fit is perfect for me I wear 32x32 Levis 514 and Calvin Klein Straight Cuts. With the help of the amazing staff at Revzilla, I went with the 32 waist as recommended. These jeans fit the same at the waist and "fit" around my legs the same as my Levis 514. The 32 waist size run a bit long. When wearing other jeans while on the bike, they would ride up and not cover my Alpinestars SMX-1 boot. The Dianese jeans cover the top of the boot when on the bike, however, when off the bike, they bunch a bit at the ankle. It does not both me though. The knee pads are perfect on my knees when on the bike. Keep in mind, with the added kevlar portion at the top of the jeans, these do not flow air very well in the groin area. Riding in the high humidity and heat in Florida does start getting a bit sweaty, even while moving. However, I would rather have the peace of mind of added safety of sweating any day of the week. My one main gripe with these jeans is that if you have Tech Spec tank grips, they will wear these jeans. I have some minor wear showing after about 800 miles from the Tech Specs. I do like to grip my tank with my knees though. March 14, 2015
ran a bit small for me i usually wear a 31 in express jeans (didn't notice but these jeans are slightly stretchy) these jeans by dainese are not. i needed a size up and they are out of stock :( although i can not get these jeans if they do have your size i would suggest getting them they are very well made and very durable. on the search for another pair that fit like these i suppose :/ March 10, 2015
Jeans good - Lining bad I like these jeans a lot. Compared to other riding jeans, they look like normal jeans, feel comfortable, and offer good protection. The knee pads are especially nice for offering protection, not feeling awkward, and looking like they aren't even there. The "one length" idea was ok in pants with no knee pads, but since these have the pads (and non-adjustable pockets for them), it's not a great compromise. After getting them altered to a pretty typical length, the knee pads end up being a little lower than I would like. They still offer protection where they are, I'd just like them a little higher. Other companies offer pockets with adjustable placement. That would be a very nice addition. The lining and knee pad pockets are just plain bad. They need to be stitched down or have some sort of closure. My toes tend to snag the pockets when I put them on, and my heel catches the lining when I try to take them off. They've held up so far, but I would guess this will eventually tear the lining. I also don't like the zipper on the rear pockets. The teeth are pretty sharp, making it almost painful to get anything out of the pocket. Maybe making it uncomfortable to take out your wallet was Daniese's idea to save you money, but I'd rather have comfortable pockets. March 9, 2015
These pants look great got these for my grown son as a gift. He wears a 33 and the 33 waist fits just as it should. The pants were quite long and needed to be hemmed which was not a problem...but the knee armor seems lower than they should be. He looks great in these jeans and although the fit is not perfect we are both happy with the purchase. I suspect they would fit a 6' 2" slender man better than a 5' 10" athletic build body type. The jeans are well made and could be worn anywhere and never reveal their secret safety mission. March 8, 2015
good riding pants Good riding pants that don't look like riding pants. I was surprised by the knee pads, I had expected them to be a lot harder, however, they are quite soft, being more of a reinforced fabric type deal than a rubber insert. On my frame (174cm and stocky) the pants do tend to need to be worn quite high in order for the knees to be at the right height, which is a little annoying. Overall fit is good with the pants not being too loose or anything. March 3, 2015
The First Riding Jeans I've Really Liked! These Jeans don't skip sizes. I ordered a 35 waist and they fit perfectly. Also nice that they come with knee armor although not very robust. The armor fits right over the knee area when riding. A well made product that works in tropical weather. February 24, 2015

Artemus G: Unfortunately I returned the jeans. They did not fit like Levi's. They actually ran smaller in the waist and legs. I purchased the Rokker jeans, which fit like Levi's. I have had them for a year and really like them and they do stretch like regular Levi's as well. Feb 17, 2015

Tomas K: No. They are tight. If you have muscular non ballerina legs, you will feel pain sitting on a sport bike. I did however dump at 40mph and slid on my knees and butt for a considerable distance and walked away with minor scratches. Feb 17, 2015

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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

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.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across 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.
