Dainese Women's New Drake Air Textile Pants 4.6 5 28 28
Very nicely designed and super comfortable. They look and feel great on. Slightly warm on a 29degree Celsius Melbourne, Australian day. Wore them on a night ride when it was quite cool (10degrees Celsius) and was surprised to feel how warm they kept me and were wind proof. The side zips at the bottom of each leg are great to zip over boots. They look great on and off the bike...still shows off our feminine curves whilst been practical for bike riding. I purchased a size 44 even though I normally wear a size 6US (which would be a 42) and I am 156cm and 57kg...they are a good fit with a little extra room if I need to wear thermals. October 22, 2014
Favorite pants for protection This was a good pick for this hot weather. I feel very protected and don't feel like I'm wearing snow pants--although they're not casual enough to wear on an everyday basis. I wear these when I'm going for long rides. September 15, 2014
Great fit! After a ton of research, I tried 4 different pants from Revzilla, these were by far the best in terms of fit, style and utility. You will feel reasonably protected without feeling bulky. Has air vents, pockets, can zip to Dainese jacket (if you have one), and most importantly, the knee/shin pads actually sit where they are supposed to! Pads can be taken out if you want to walk around comfortably for longer periods time, they will look like street pants. No hip protection or place to put hip pads though. Overall, should cost a less but it's Dainese so that kind of price is expected I guess. Also, I am 5'6 and the length is perfect; women 5'8 and above would find these pants too short. September 15, 2014
I have 2 pair, I love these pants but liked the old shin protectors better ( can I buy a set? ) I bought a pair at the end of last year, but I bought them straight from dainese, Revzilla didn't have in Stock ( and once a year dainese offers free shipping to the states, it happen to fall during there free shipping) they were a little big, but with the velcro straps and as the fall was arriving I figured perfect I'll use as an over pant, other than a little bit big (not in a bad way, and not to much) they are perfect (woman want thigh, hip protection yes but we don't want to look like we have huge hips and legs, well we can't have our cake and eat it to no thigh or hip protection here, I do have the dainese hard shorts for daring days, and dirt, I use with the bigger pant) I am 5'7" 140 lbs Pair one size 46, I use these as an over pant, if not wearing pants under I have to at least wear shorts or they are just to big (the reason I bought a second pair) the knee/shin protectors are long and fairly wide contoured to your leg, removable via a pocket with velcro, soft and squishy on your body side but hard plastic on the outer side. I purchased some boots several pair worried about how they would fit with the shin protectors, the dainese "in" series is awkward, however they plugged right in to both the sidi and dainese "out" series so perfectly, they even have a little contour to them honestly I think dainese designed them to fit it boots, because the little contour seems to be perfect for boot height I ended up with the dainese tourqe out boot, paired with the pants I feel really protected all hard protection from toes to top of knees nothing really soft, just a wall of ce certification ;-) I'll put some pictures in of the different knee/shin protectors Pair 2 size 44 ( my height and weight didn't change) big difference from the 46 ( I originally was contemplating between the 42 and 44, worried the 44 would still be to big, but kinda worried the 42 might be tight, I decided to try the 44 figuring I'd just do an exchange if there was an issue) so glad I got the 44 no doubt 42 would have been to small/tight no doubt, the 44 fits great perfect no Room to tighten the velcro straps, but definitely not to tight either yes they make you butt look good there not lieing! The material is kinda stretchy ish hug your curves and have a little more of a hipster type pant waist fit instead of a waist belly button fit these sit under well under the belly button plenty high in the back, the knee /shin protectors well they changed then :-( I don't have my wall of ce certification anymore, there like 2/3 hard 1/3 soft, still squishy on your body side and hard over knee but know only hard on about 1/2 your shin then soft, when I put my boots on they still kinda go in but can bunch a little and sorta flip out because it's not hard here soft, the hard on the shin protector isn't as wide either, but between the hard shin and the boot there is a section were the soft part of the shin is all I have like boot stops 2-3 inches before hard shin starts, my wall is now broken leaving me feeling less protected, they are shorter and less hard protection, still love the pants, but would love to order a replacement set of protectors but the old version, which seems not possible as no one ( not even dainese) sells any knee/shin protectors for your dainese pants, oh well I guess I might just switch them back and forth (totally annoying) Revzilla if you know of a fix please email me :-) but honestly you'll still love this pant, my sister has a pair. These are seriously the most stylish and butt looking good / most protective pant your ganna find pricey yes, I was very hesitatant on my first order (because of price) but love them enough to buy a second pair! My original pair (46) have over 7000 miles on them and still look great no loose stitches, and only a little teeny tiny but of wear on the inside of the knees were they slide on my tank protectors when leaned over and my knee is up there, there pretty aggressive tank protectors, and it's only slight wear very slight . I am very happy with these pants! September 7, 2014
This pant fits great with good protection. I love these pants. They actually look great on and give you good protection for riding. I'm 5"4 & weigh 122 lbs. a size 42 fit perfect. The air flow is not as great as I would have liked. I ride a Triumph Bonniville which also ignites a lot of heat from the engine. But over all a great looking pant. August 11, 2014
Good but pricey women's pants I can't really find fault with these pants except for the price. They fit well (followed the sizing guidelines) and presumably do the job of protecting knees and shins (knock wood). No hip protection, though. They look better than most other women's motorcycle pants. Bottom line is that these are probably your best bet given the choices. I would wear them into a restaurant and not feel too conspicuous. There is still room for improvement in women's gear and pants could be a focus. August 4, 2014
Very practical, and fits great My wife's most frequently used pants. Dainese size 40 just fits her perfectly. July 29, 2014
Great, comfortable, feminine form-fitting women biker pants I use to swear myself never ever wear an over-size, over sized, snow pants look-a-like bike pants. Ended up always opted for a dainese kevlar jeans. I finally decided to invest in one since we're going for a long trip which will need a more protection (knee). I was surprise how form-fitting it was, it's not as fitting as your skinny jeans, but it's enough to hug your womanly curves and edges. It's also oh so comfortable, the knee guard felt like "butter" on my skin, seriously.. Lol. And I even gotten a complement from a non biker female about how nice it looks. Overall a good investment.

Linda S: Fabulous protection and style. They also make my butt look really good, a plus in my book! :) Oct 23, 2013
Jennifer M asked: Which boots do you wear with these pants? Any trouble with boots with shin armor (i.e. Sidi Fusion Lei, Dainese Siren, etc.) overlapping with the knee/shin armor on these pants and causing discomfort or (God forbid) unstylish bulging? Jul 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Katie M: I wear them with icon elsinores now, and there's some overlap with the shin armor, but it's not uncomfortable for me, especially with my knees bent. (I'm 5'4" and wear a 42.) Previously I wore them with Alpinestars SMX - 5s and there was less of a conflict there, since those are about 1-3cms shorter than the elsinores. There's some serious unstylish bulging with the elsinores too, but the SMX -5s were not as bad since they're a less bulky boot. When I got these I thought I might be able to pull them off as casual pants here and there, but they look like motorcycle pants. My favorite motorcycle pants that I love, but there's no pretending they're casual. Jul 25, 2014
Reply to Katie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jennifer M: I assume you wear them outside of the boot rather than inside, correct? Jul 25, 2014
Shirlee G: I wear BMW gore-tex boots (mid calf height). No problem while riding. When I get off my bike, I just pull the armor back over the top of the boot. No discomfort… and it doesn't look bad! I really needed the Dainese pants because I'm short-waisted, and they're the only fit that doesn't come up to my ribs when I'm on the saddle! I love the thigh vents. Watch that fastener though; mine broke after just a couple of rides.
Also, as extra info, the size small fit great standing up but bit into the back of my knees on the bike so I got the size medium and they're perfect (I'm 5'5", 115 lbs).

Yana U: I wear Sidi Vertigo Lady Boots. There is a problem. Hard shoes. Lightning bottom pants rubbing bone on the foot. Accounts at clothing shoes, deploy leg. Protection is included in the knee boots. But sometimes you have to correct her. When folding legs coming out of the shoe, you need to insert back. Another side buckles are not comfortable. And so cool pants. Jul 26, 2014

Patricia E: I wear the Sidi Fusion Lei with these pants. I wear them tucked in sometimes and on the outside other times; depends on the temp and my mood. I find the pants very comfortable although not a great airflow pant. They do work good as I have the Daniese jacket which attaches to the pants. I hope this helps.

Jennifer M: You don't find the airflow to be good even with the flaps open? Do you have any better suggestions for pants with good airflow? Also, does the shin armor on the pants interfere with your shin armor on your boots? Jul 25, 2014
Michael F: I purchased the TCX Aura boots, which do have some shin armor. The boots come about mid-way on my calf and do not cause bulging or discomfort . The fit of the pants and boots are smooth. Additionally, the pants flex nicely when I am on my bike. I am extremely happy with them! Jul 25, 2014

S P L: Hi there,

I have about a 29" inseam and the pants work great for me, 5'5" and 130 pounds, I think I have size 42 but I can't find the tag to confirm. Your wife would likely need to get the pants hemmed, but I highly recommend them. Great fit, comfortable and flattering. Good luck.

Lena S: Mine are a size 46 and they have a 31" inseam and they're a perfect length. Im 5'7" and 145 lbs and always get "regular" inseam with size 8 (American) or 29 (European) jeans. Hope that helps. I suppose a tailor could shorten them if need be but get a good tailor because it would require shortening the lining too and putting in a new zipper on each leg. Mar 21, 2015
Reply to Lena Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
glenna s: Hi. The inseam on these pants is right around 30. The ankle area zipper length is 12 inches. That leaves plenty of room to have them altered. Yes they are pricey to begin with and adding more for alterations, I am not sure they're worth it. Perhaps if you have an affordable alterations person. Mar 21, 2015

Brooke B: I'm 5 feet even and about 110 lbs- the 38's (I think) fit well and are a bit long, but manageable. The knee protectors have some mobility so they can be shifted to the appropriate location, and they do not drag when I''m wearing boots. I did not have to have them hemmed. Mar 21, 2015

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
jaydeegee: There's some light abrasion padding on the outside and a *very* thin foam pad insert on the inside. The internal pad is held with a mesh pocket with a velcro closure, so you may be able to fit different pads. May 17, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Patricia E: I haven't tried removing the knee pads while the pants are on. I don't think it would be possible from my time wearing them. It is rather difficult putting the knee pads back in after a wash. They are great pants and do provide air movement.
Hope this helps!!

A shopper asked: The Dainese web site lists these pants as made of "Mugello" fabric, whereas they are listed as 750 Cordura on the Revzilla site... clarification? Jan 12, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: Unfortunately, that question will have to remain un-answered. Dainese doesn't conform to the typical Cordura ratings since their materials are all proprietary. My personal assessment is that Mugello fabric is in the neighborhood of 500D, but since we are comparing apples to oranges, no-one really has a "conversion chart" for Dainese fabrics to Cordura ratings.

Paula R: Thanks for the clarification! Now - the answer I can't find anywhere. What sort of abrasion resistance does this "Mugello" offer, as compared to other fabrics? Jan 12, 2012
Reply to Paula Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: Good catch, Dainese is correct - we've updated our product description to match. Jan 12, 2012

Dave S asked: Hello all--I love my New Drake Air pants and want to get my wonderful wife the women's version--but I'm confused on the sizing. She's 5'10", 125 lbs dripping wet, and has long legs. Like a 35 inch inseam. She wears a size 2-4 dress. Any thoughts on the size of the pants I should order? Aug 5, 2014

Daniel H: Dave - my wife is 5' 10" and her inseam is 35" (measured crotch to floor)....we had trouble finding pants that fit. We got her a size 46 and it works well for her. Sep 13, 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.

  • 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.
