Great looking pants that fit well and are well made but aren't great with boots
They are great looking pants, no question. They are also incredibly well made and look very protective.

I have one major issue with them and one minor. The major issue is that I clearly have larger calves then most. I own a pair of TCX X-Cube boots and I cannot get the zipper to close over these boots. The pants also don't fit in the boots.

So as a result, I ride with these slightly open. Which means it's it's raining, the water gets in from the top of the boot since the pants don't close around them. I can't even predict which boot would work best with these pants.

The minor issue is that if you wear these with just underwear, the lining will rub your knees and it will chaff them. I did a 6hr ride with these pants and I came back with some pretty raw skin on the knees. You can fix that by wearing some lycra tights or something similar.

But other then those two issues, these really are fantastic pants. They also work better with people who have thin calves as compared to larger calves. Mine are quite large thus why I think I have issues with my boots.

Great Commuter Or Weekend Warrior Pants
I have always been a big fan of dainese products and feel you truly get what you pay for, ultimately I was torn between these and the aliens and decided to go with the Pony because of perforation. Living in arizona if i want more than 3 months out of my leathers this is a must, the airflow itself is nothing phenomenal but does do a pretty decent job up to around 85 or 90, possibly higher. The pants themselves are sized pretty dead on but will not work to well with certain jackets and a racing tuck due to them riding a little low. However combined with a seperate dainese jacket (a super speed c2 in my case) you have a flawlessly fitting suit I wouldn't mind throwing around on the track or the freeway for a simple commute. My only complaint of the pants which is also a bit of a positive, is the knee protection. I can't fit them under my current boots due to the way dainese goes down the shin, but outside the pants with expansion zipper undone they fit wonderfully! Overall definitely a recommended product!

Pony C2 pants are very good
Aside from the small annoying thing of the right knee pad wanting to grab my knee hair a little when my knees are bent, this is a great, super protective leather pant. It breathes well for a leather pant as I've ridden in 85 degree weather without any issue when wearing boxers underneath and in 60 degrees with a pair of slacks or jeans underneath. I think with some thermal underwear I could do upper 40 degrees comfortably.

A Change for the Worse
The originals were my "go-to" sport touring pants last year but I wanted the latest C2 version so sold them and bought these. In my opinion the C2 might meet tougher EU specs but they no longer work for me for a few reasons.

They are listed as having the suit to boot system but potential purchasers should be aware that they do not have this system. They have an expansion zipper in the calf but that's it. There is no Velcro on the inside of the shin which the matching Velcro on the "in" boots should marry-up with. This means the Velcro on your "in" boots will rub and destroy the liner in the pants in no time. It also means there is a risk of the pants slipping up your leg either as you ride or in the event of an accident. This was my experience of the previous model before I added a Velcro patch on the inside myself.

Whilst the old design didn't have this system either it did have a fall back in the elasticated calf. The entire calf and hem was elastic so you could cinch down the second expansion zipper right to the ankle which would really lock the pants in place. The new design has a fixed hem which doesn't stretch so your expansion is either closed for over the pants type of boots or open. I find in the open position it isn't tight enough and looks hideous (very wide looking calf then narrow ankle). The shin armor is so long it now sits on top of the shin armor in the boots so it is even more unsightly and uncomfortable. This really should be a modular system so the pants armor meets the top of the boot armor in any combination of Dainese pants and boots. I would imagine "out" type boots would have the same issue with overlapping hard armor.

I really wish they had kept the aspects of the previous design which made it work so well with their in boots as in other respects they are good pants. However, as a confirmed "under the suit" boot fan these are a step backwards. Plus they are missing aspects of the system they claim to have.

Intro to Dainese pants - love them
These pants are great. I measured myself according to Revzilla's sizing instruction, ordered the size that fit the measurements, and crossed my fingers that I would get it right the first time - and the right size arrived. The first couple of rides took a little bit of breaking in, as most leather does from my experience. After about 50-100 miles they fit like a glove.

A couple of notes:
Yes, these are perforated - but they are leather. Wore on some 80 degree humid days in NYC. While at speed they're great - stopped a different story; but not unbearable. You will most likely sweat.

Perhaps it's my inseam compared to height, but these pants are slightly short in the hem especially in the seated position. With boots they're fine, but just something to be aware of.

Great fit, very comfortable
I purchased these pants shortly after I a Dainese jacket having been so impressed with the jacket, I haven't had any leathers before so this is my first go round with both a leather jacket and pants as well. I haven't had either very long, but have managed a few rides in fairly different conditions. The first was at around 30 degrees F, which was surprisingly comfortable. I was never cold even with the perforations in the pants. I felt air flow but it was not cold extremely cold air. It was cool but I stayed comfortable. The second was slightly higher temperature at about 60 degrees. It was also very comfortable. Still felt a little airflow, but never got hot. It was just pleasant. The pants fit very well. I usually wear a 30-34 jean so I decided on the 48's. The fit very well. The legs feel a bit short to me, but im kind of long legged and skinny so i didn't expect it to be perfect. A pair of ankle boots should take care of that, The padding is nice, feels solid where you want it. Knees and shins are well covered. The only negatives I can come up with are the shortish legs and the pockets. The pockets are basically useless. Don't expect to get much more than a single key or a credit card in there. Fortunately my jacket has enough room for anything I might carry. I do like that these pants zip to my current jacket. I like the idea of the added protection in a crash. The only other thought I have is the initial break in. When I got on my bike for the first couple goes, it was fairly difficult to bend my legs up far enough to get to the foot pegs. This has gotten better with a few rides, but on my 06 Yamaha R-6 it was a bit of an effort at first. Overall I'm glad I picked these up and would certainly recommend them to a friend.

Quality Leather Pants
I received these pants a few weeks ago and am very impressed with the quality. I have a Dianese Zen Perforated Leather jacket and jumped on these seeing that they were perforated and didn't have knee sliders. I use these pants for Sport Touring so I didn't need the sliders. I normally wear a 32W 30L jean pant, but as Revzilla advised I took measurements and bought the size 52 pants. The fit was perfect for me, very nice around the waist and seat, and snug in the calves. The pants are definitly made for wearing inside boots. I've worn the pants riding once so they are still not fully broken in, but they are very comfortable already. Dianese gear in my opinion is top shelf gear and you feel very protected. Airflow seems to be good, but I'm sure when it's 90 plus I will be warm. I'm willing to sweat a little to be safe when i'm riding. Overall the pants are terrific, no complaints.

The fit and comfort is very good with good usable features
Brought the Dainese pants on there reputation and the features of the pony C2 Perforated and have not been disappointed .I am a sports bike rider with a few track days so comfort is very important .I have found them very good not a tight fit plenty of movement if you are on the track some pants can interfere restrict movement not these pants .The air flow is also notable over non perforated pants as I live in western Australia cooling is important. As for Features the removable knee/shin armour is very good it gives you options to change them to suit your type of riding

Overall rather good with one small almost-deal-breaker
I think these pants are great except for when trying to wear them with the legs tucked inside your boots. There are 2 zippers on the lower leg: one for the opening, and one for the expansion panel. One of these zippers is heavier-duty than the other and the (somewhat clunky) slider of this one really digs into my leg when I wear my boots over them. This makes an otherwise very comfortable pant rather unpleasant to wear for more than an hour or so.

I'm trying to figure out a fix for this since I don't want to change-up my boots (Forma Adventures, which I'm really happy with). I like these a lot otherwise, and I'm sure they'd be fine with in-boots.

Perfect street pants!
I was looking for for a good mate to my avro jacket in leather for the street and didn't need sliders. The quality of these pants is amazing, even though they are perf, they are warm in 85+ days but any leather will be. Armor and padding stays in place and definitely makes me feel more protected.

These pants are snug, I have a 31" waist and its hard to find the right fit but following Revzilla's video guides and sizing charts helped immensely. The back of the knees were tight at first. Wearing them around the house for a day or two and a few rides they are loosening up as they break in. Awesome pants, highly suggest them if you are not hitting the track, totally worth the money...

These pants are very comfortable, protective, and look a lot more like regular pants without an excessive amount of logos or colors drawing attention. I really did not want to look like I am in a track suit while still wearing something solid that matches the rest of my outfit.

have the same pants non perforated. a little disappointed w amount of perforation on these (very little), the two are almost identical. understand safety issue (tear strength) but was hoping for something cooler in leather on hot summer rides

I wanted a leather pant with excellent protection. As well, based on reviews, the fit runs slightly large and the ventilation is good. We will see on those items. I am 6 foot 1 inch and weigh around 240 and ordered a size 60. I am hopeful on waist. Guess I need to cut back on the skittles

How do these compare to the Dianese Alien pants? I know these are perforated and the Aliens are not, and I'm thinking of these to use instead of the Aliens for warm weather riding. So, I'm interested to know if these are similar to the Aliens, and if not, how they differ (other than perforation)?
Joseph F on Apr 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My weather here is 90+F all year round.
I like the protection the Aliens afford, but they are hot.
If you're riding a bike that gives you airflow, the fabric part will ventilate well.
The leather part gets very hot in the sun.

I still wear them...
I usually wear a size 50 in Dainese textile pants (eg. Yamato). Would it be the same size in leather ones, and particularly Pony C2?
Ilias C on May 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I own a pair of Dainese textile pants in a 52--don't recall the model--and the Ponys in a 52 and yes, the sizing is very similar. Note that unlike the textile pants, after some usage the leather pants will loosen about 1 size, eg, from a 52 to a 53. So don't panic if the leather pants are a little tight at first.
Would these fit comfortably inside "Dainese TR-Course Out Air Boots" ? It seems from the review video its best to wear them with "In" boots.
Sherif A on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've tried them with both boots. The Course In boots have Velcro on them that will Frey the inside of the Pony C2's, so do get the Course In bots. I wear the Pony C2's tucked into the Course out boots. It is a little tight when you zip up the boots, but works fine for me. Hope this helps.
Will these pants fit over boots?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, I wear Sidi touring boots and they will not fit under the pants. The pants fit snug at the lower leg.
Question on what size to get. I wear a 34/30 in jeans and debating if the size 52 will be too small? Thanks in advance!
Patrick H on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear 35/36wait 32inseam and im in the 54 that are a snug fit. 54 may fit like normal pants on you but too loose for leathers which should be form fitting as theyll stretch a bit after break in. So I think 52 is right size since you dont want it loose in thighs. If youre on the tighter end of 34s already bordering 35 then go with 54.
Anthony says this isn't intended for the track, but wouldn't this be a fine pant for beginner group at a track day? It certainly meets trackday requirements it seems.
A shopper on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The pants seem to have some style elements and no sliders. A true track pants can take some low siders and you go back on the bike in them. Those probably will protect you but they won't look as good after you went down…..
How is the airflow on these pants? Will they be a good choice for summer heat?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wore them on a 3 hour blast last week along the highway into Vegas. They were fine, but i was on-bike the whole time. If you get off in 90+ degrees, you will be comfortable in shorts, not pants of any kind. On my rented harley cruiser, there wasn't much air flow from the position of the perforations.
will this zip to an alpine star jacket?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will not zip to a Jaws jacket, which is what I tried. I got the Laguna Evo instead of the Jaws and I'm happy about my decision.
