Good protection under a pair of jeans So this purchase was influenced by a nasty low side I had on the sportbike a few weeks ago. I usually ride with a full Dainese suit but for picking up the bike from the dealer I had just thrown on a pair of jeans. Let me tell you I really wish I was wearing these under. Knees were rashed pretty badly and my right hip had a nice bruise. I'm a Dainese guy and really trust the R&D they put on every product they put out. Thee fit perfectly under a pair of jeans (no skinny jeans obviously but anything witha slim modern cut works perfectly). Good padding short of having hard armor in there. Fit wise, I'm usually a medium but here I went with the large going by the previous reviews. They do run a bit small mind you that they fit like spandex and thus are tight to begin with. For reference I'm 5'9 165 lbs with a 31-32 inch waist and went with a large. Large fits great and had I gone with medium I'd feel like a stuffed pork chop. Once again only good things to say about Dainese products. April 14, 2014
Excellent Product These pants are quality, the padding in them is excellent! I chose these over riding pants because I can wear them under any jeans for extra protection. I am 5'10" 145lbs and I ordered and medium and they fit perfect. April 12, 2014
Little Bulk, Good Protection! I wear these together with my Forcefield Pro Shirt + Kevlar long sleeve for great protection without overwhelming bulk! The fit for me was right on with an XL (I'm a size 36 waist). Padding is adequate and hasn't moved around like other reviewers have said. I do position the elbow and knees pads a bit after putting them on, but again they have yet to move! Very comfortable under a pair of jeans and they don't make you look like a geek! Great price and worth it! April 7, 2014
This product is comfortable. A good choice to wear under a pair of jeans. The panels on the pants feel decent and the pants seem to be durable. No issue wearing it in hot weather. April 2, 2014
Comfortable and not bulky Good fit. With average protection compared to forcefield pro pants ( I also own) that has thicker padding everywhere. However the Norosex pants are not as bulky (thinner padding) which actually in my opinion goes well with a kevlar jean combo. It just looks better! If your leaning towards forcefield, mine as well go with full leather. March 31, 2014
They are exactly what you'd expect These are undergarments, so not much to say about the style department. However, they are very comfortable and work perfectly under a pair of jeans or other pants when I don't feel like wearing my padded riding pants. Overall very happy with fit and function. March 11, 2014
I just went down and it saved my knee. I wear these under jeans when I ride. I unfortunately ran wide due to a steel plate on the road and hit a concrete barrier. My bike slammed into the wall and so did my right knee. I have some abrasions on my knee and it is pretty sore but all of my xrays were negative. I know my knee hit the wall pretty much square and the CE rated padding helped minimize the damage. I recommend this to anyone even if you use knee armor. Great product that reduced my recovery time by months of painful rehab! March 2, 2014
Fits great under jeans or khakis. I bought these pants as a temp solution while I find a good pair of riding pants. I've been using them for 3 months now. I even rode in these to work while wearing khakis a couple of times. The great thing about these is you still look normal while being protected. Thankfully though I haven't had a chance to test how protective these are. The only reason I still want to buy riding over pants is for rain and wind protection. January 20, 2014

Ellery P: I purchased these for extra protection and warmth under my jeans. Apr 10, 2014
Wade T: great reviews and Dainese quality. I wanted some sort of protection that I can wear under any pants. I also ordered a pair of Scorpion Covert Kevlar jean so should be a perfect combination Mar 29, 2014
A S: I bought other pants and they were too small. I called about sizing for this and got good information about it's streatchiness and sizing. I can wear pants that fit me over these for added protection. Mar 28, 2014
A S: I have kevlar jeans but they do not have any armor so I thought this would be a good addition in the event of a get off. Mar 26, 2014
Michael L: I usually just ride with jeans, so I want a protective base layer that isn't going to be too bulky. Mar 25, 2014
karl r: I chose this for adv/dualsport riding. I chose these of competitors because of better customer reviews. I generally hope on my bike with maybe a maximum leg protection of knee pads. I'm going to be trying them in a lot of off road environments and I will review if I feel they offer enough protection after I give them a shot for a few weeks. I'm 6'0, 185lbs, 33" waist, and I ordered a large. Mar 20, 2014
C O: For added protection and confidence when riding. Mar 15, 2014
Diana B: will go under sufficiently loose clothing street clothing as well as Dakar pants Mar 9, 2014
Joseph P: I have the forcefield armor, which is very heavy and thick. Need something that will fit under kevlar jeans comfortably for local riding. We shall see once it arrives. Mar 7, 2014
Elijah S: I wanted some protection under my jeans and these were perfect for that. Jan 28, 2014
Mark L: CE rated armor in an undetectable base layer plus the Dainese brand and quality that comes with it made this a no-brainer. The fact that they won a ZLA award is what initially caught my attention. I had been looking into purchasing the Bohn armored tights before I found these. Although the Bohn seemed to have beefier armor, they were significantly more expensive. These are comfortable and the armor stays exactly where it should while I'm riding. Dec 23, 2013
Joseph M: Wanted armor I could put on under every day clothes. Dec 18, 2013
Chuck M: Wanted protection to use with the regular well fitting pants I already have. I also wanted some protection that stays where it belongs...none of the jeans today offer hip pads without looking like a pair of Hand Me Downs! Nov 7, 2013
Ricardo K: I leave in Brazil where is very hot so I had to choose this item to use under my Jeans. It is the first time using this stuff I hope it will get me protected. Nov 3, 2013
Johnnie B: Decent undergarment protection. Does a good job. Happy with the product. Nov 3, 2013
C J: I read many positive reviews, I was looking for an underarmor to use under my kevlar jeans. Oct 12, 2013

Spencer B: I'm 6' 215 lbs and wear 34w 36L jeans, the large was a little too small. Dainese tends to run on the small side. Large might work for you if you're a slim build. Mar 26, 2014

John S: When I ordered this product, I had to return to size up. I found that even though it is Lycra type material, that the armour prevents stretching in these areas causing it to size smaller. I'm a 36 waist and had to go from L to XL. My suggestion for you is L. Oct 8, 2013

Steven C: I'm wearing the same size of jeans too. I ordered the large.
They are snug but by no means tight as they stretch, and I find the pads stay put in proper location regardless of movement.

Gregory W asked: People that have bought a pair, when riding multiple days in a row, are you washing these every night? When you go into work, do you change out or wear these all day long? Feb 28, 2014

Benjamin N: When going out to Sturgis I spent about 8 days in these and only rinsed them out once. Temps were over 90 on most days and smell, or general grime was not an issue. I did wear a under armor compression short under these at all times though. As far as wearing them at work I do not. If your job requires alot of walking aruond I think the seams on the inside would get a ittle bothersome. I do like this product andd highly recomend it, people can not tell you have them on and they are comfortable even off the bike as I found out when we walked around Mt. Rushmore. I just wouldn't want to spend all day in them if i wasn't on the bike. Feb 28, 2014

Max Z: I wear compression shorts underneath, so no need to wash more than usual (but it doesn't get that hot in San Francisco).

Might be uncomfortable to wear all day, and sitting down people would notice the armor at the knees. I change out of them at work.

A shopper asked: I am considering base layer armor pants, comparing these Dainese Norsorex with the Klim Tactical Pant, and the Forcefield Pro Pant (at roughly 2.75 times the investment). How would the gear professionals, or a customer who has tried these, compare the three products? Oct 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joseph M: I have the Dainese Norsorex pants. The Klim offer more thigh protection but the Norsorex offer more knee padding. The Forcefield Pro offer a lot more protection than either the Norsorex or Klim. I have been very happy with the Norsorex but if money was not a problem, I would go with the Forcefield Pro. That being said I am perfectly happy with the Norsorex.
Hope this helps, Joe

Stephen G: I have only tried the Dainese pants so I can't compare the 3. I can say I really like the Dainese pants especially for the price. The pants are thin, light and pretty comfortable. I like that the pads are thin, you can't tell I'm wearing armor under my jeans. I haven't crash tested them but I'm assuming they'll offer decent protection. I would recommend them to anyone.

Micheal R: I have the Dainese Norsorex, which I frequently wear under a pair of Dainese jeans. I find them to be relatively comfortable and breathable. The pads are positioned well and don't move around at all. Fortunately, I haven't gone down while wearing them, but I would expect the pads to offer decent protection. Oct 29, 2013

A shopper asked: How cold do you think these pants can survive in? (the lowest temp while still remaining relatively warm) Oct 11, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Malcolm C: I wouldn't say these provide any insulation for warmth. They are thin where there aren't any pads, sort of like compression pants. But they do block the wind so you end up feeling warmer but not really a real cold weather solution. Oct 12, 2013

Joshua H: They aren't pants, they are baselayer tights. They are relatively warm (IMHO) down to a temperature of 40-50f (5-12c) without needing anything else. Oct 11, 2013
