Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants 4.5 5 236 236
OK but not great I'm about 5'6" and 155lb with an athletic build (years of squatting heavy and often). These pants work pretty well for me, but they could work better. I bought them because I have a Dianese jacket, and I wanted textile summer pants that would zip into it. Pros: * Handles heat well * 360 zip into Dianese jackets. It's easy to use and makes me feel more secure. * Armor on knees and shins is very solid. Cons: * No hip armor * Not great for an athletic build. Not terrible, but could be better in, for example, the calves and crotch. * Armor on knees and shins is solid to the point that the pants don't wear/fit well with mid-shin boots, so I always wear sport riding shoes instead. All in all, I am content with my purchase. I'm just not glowing about it. June 28, 2016
Solid, Functional Pants I got these pants because the level of hard armor protection in the knees. They are very comfortable and fit well, I am a thin athletic build. The vents in the knees have a noticeable improvement on cooling and the pockets do not drag in the wind. The areas of the rest of the legs can get a bit warm by comparison when the fans are going at low speeds, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice the level of protection at high speeds it seems to have, and its not too bad so I can live with that. They attach easily to my Dianese jacket. Only improvements I can think of would be to add a second rear pocket, as I am used to have both rear pockets in jeans, and that some might want to increase the protection around the pelvis area. There are two foam pads there only, and as I have bony hips I do not feel that is adequate protection for me and will be getting armored compression shorts after I do more research on them. The lack of two rear pockets (still has one rear and two front) is easily livable and the lack of pelvis armor is fixable so they are a great option otherwise. Would buy again if I wore these out.

Sturdy Pants that Look Great To start off, I have a very slim, fit build. 5'8" about 138lb. 29" waist (?). I tried on the 48 and the waist seemed to be a little loose. Ended up buying the 46 and it fits great; however, the calves area is a bit snug, which doesn't bother me much. The pants themselves feel like quality. The material on the outside seems tough enough to survive a crash. The inside is lined by a breathable mesh that's comfortable, but when sweating it tends to stick a bit to your skin. The pants have a couple of useful features that are quite nice. First of which are the air vents at the top of the knees. These let through a TON of air compared to when they're closed. Ducati totally nailed the air flow in these. The next are the great zippers. Sometimes, great quality zippers need to be appreciated, man. There's a lot of them placed in appropriate places (fly, pockets, calves, jacket attachment point) and they all function phenomenally. Just smooth movements and hasn't caught onto any fabric since I've started wearing them. The calve zippers specifically have been a life saver for me as they help a ton in removing the pants. Maybe the most important of all, is the armor. It feels solid and it doesn't slide around at all, which is awesome. As for looks, this is as good as it gets. A nice slim fit that gives these the appearance of regular black pants. There isn't obnoxious branding all over. Instead, the brand name is placed very subtly, which I actually prefer over just having black. If you're thinking of buying there are things to consider also: -They are quite expensive. I'd say worth it, but if you're buying these because you just need protection there are cheaper alternatives that will do the same job. Air flow and looks are just minor pluses when getting pants just for that purpose of saving you. -They are "heavy". When wearing them they don't feel heavy at all to me, but if you have to carry them around for whatever reason it can be annoying. Plus packing them would be a real b... experience. The armor adds a little bulk and the material is slight stiff. -If you're not into slim fits, look else where. -The space inside pockets are a bit hard to get into. A VERY minor issue, but still one for me nonetheless. -TRY THESE IN STORE FIRST IF POSSIBLE. You may have the same/similar proportions but they still might feel different to you regardless. Plus, the Revzilla team was very helpful and provided good insight. With all these considered, I 100% recommend these pants. Ducati really did make something special here and I appreciate the quality of these pants every day. Ride safe everybody! June 21, 2016
Stylish, Comfortable, But with a catch I wear 36x32 jeans. The 54 fit spot on. They are very comfortable on and off the bike. The air flow isn't as strong as I hoped, good, but not strong. It seems like for a touring leg position the air vent is lined up parallel to the wind, versus direct if on a sport bike. One issue... after stopping at a light, they pull up when I stand supporting the bike and are uncomfortable initially when riding away. This is as described in other reviews. I found just a quick stretch or flex of the legs fixed it. I commuted in them to work and then wore them around the office for the day. Very comfortable. An issue to be careful is that if you drop them for #2 in the john, the hip pads tend to fold over and you have to reset them. This happened even when I tried to avoid it. It's easy to fix, just a bit irksome when you forget and pull them up quickly. These are the only pants I've ever had where I feel like the kneepads are really going to stay in place. That includes BMW pants and pricey Klim jeans. I feel protected wearing these pants. May 16, 2016
True to size Im 5'9 with a 36 in jeans and a 32 inseam. Ordered the 56 short and they fit great, the waist is adjustable and if i could do it again i would've got one size smaller. The knee padding lines up perfectly on teh bike and off, and the airflow with the knee vents open is great as long as your moving at least 30mph. Protection inspires confidence. May 13, 2016
Great Pants, but one Fatal Flaw 6' 3'' 210 pounds 33x34 athletic build bought the Tall 54. I want to say that these are Great pants. I wanted these pants to be perfect, but they have one major flaw for anyone with a sport bike or big legs and that's the fabric behind the knee. In the riding position the fabric WILL bunch up and pinch the back of your knee. It's enough of a pain that I'm returning mine. Everything else about these pants are perfect. Air flow through the vents is great, the adjustable waist is awesome, very stylish, and fabric is durable. Revzilla, Test this stuff on the bike! May 10, 2016
Look great & ride in comfort Me: female person with not much in the way of hips or butt and have found mens' sizing in pants is is a better cut for me. One big problems in ladies sizes i(even the tall) are not long enoughI I have a 33-34" inseam and am 5'9" and weigh about 150. The size that suited me best is mens 52 tall. BTW--if you order a tall size-you need to order up one size because waist size decreases by one size in tall in the world of Dianese. I was looking for a pair of Black pants for spring & winter/fall. & based on other reviews I thought these might be suitable. The pants fit a bit baggy in the upper legs, and therefore allow for me to layer up if I need to. The length is perfect and they as SO VERY comfortable--Mostly because the knee armor has foam padding between you and the armor. On the bike they fit perfect and look and feel just the way that I had hoped they would. I have not tested these in hot summer weather but it seems that they might be too hot for above 85 degrees. I have put a couple of hundred miles on these pants and think they are well worth the investment. If you are looking for a really breezy pair of summer pants, try Revit Airwave 2 pants. They have fantastic air flow and are comfortable and have good hip and knee armor. They also come in silver with is more suited for a hot climate--if that is one of your concerns April 17, 2016
Excellent with one huge flaw. I purchased these pants with hopes of using them as my go to for all weather conditions except for the winter months. Initially I found them to be super comfortable with good protection for a textile pant. I loved the optional vent in the thighs. They seemed to be a winner.......until I sat on the bike. For reference I'm 6'2 200lbs with a 34" inseam and ordered a size 54...these pants have a mesh liner that bunches up right behind your knees while in the riding position...I mean it cut off my blood flow it was so tight...not sure if I received a faulty pair but I wouldn't have been able to ride a mile without ripping that liner out.
