Dainese Women's New Drake Air Textile Pants 4.6 5 24 24
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.

Not quite right Purchased for wife. Her ride is a 2007 Monster S2R. Main issue with these pants is the thigh flap and its retention snap. It is supposed to work to hold the flap open as well as closed, but it does not! The snaps are either installed incorrectly or manufactured without the little wire ring that keeps it fastened to the male post on the pants when it is supposed to hold the flap open. June 23, 2014
Comfort and style - as expected from this brand. You get what is expected from Dianese. The pant allows air flow, provides protection. I felt the waist runs large in order to get the room needed in the legs and hips. I'm adding velcro to the adjustable area along the waist to decrease the gap in the back. I do recommend the pant. They also look great if style is important to you. June 21, 2014
Ultra comfortable I am a very new rider and wanted to have a much greater level of protection than my jeans. I am extremely happy with these pants, as I am with my Dainese jacket. They are ultra comfortable and fit nicely in the waist and rear end, and you can move about easily. I am petite (5'3"; almost 100 #), and ordered the size 40. I tried the leg vents out on the last portion of my first ride with them and was very comfortable in the 93-degree heat and high humidity. My husband was so impressed with them that he says he would like a pair of the men's version. In terms of the protection/durability, I feel that the protectors and fabric will offer what I need, if I should ever need it (I hope not!!!). June 11, 2014
Good airflow, stylish fit At 5'3" and 117 lbs, I bought these in a size 42. I typically wear a 0 or 2 in regular pants. I can wear a good wicking baselayer under them without trouble. The pants fit well, with decent adjustability. I wish the velcro adjustments for the waist had a little more length on them, but I can remedy that by sewing on an additional piece to get more contact area. I've not yet had a problem, but with the tabs snugged down, there's not much overlap. Knee and shin armor is well-placed, though when standing the top of the knee armor can dig a bit into your leg. This is not a problem when on the bike and has become less noticeable over a few wearings. No hip armor, though I think I probably have room to use some if I figured out a way to attach it (or wore armored leggings underneath). The pants are plenty long, though I have short legs. This resulted in a small problem: the extra material can bunch behind the knee, which is slightly uncomfortable. After a few rides, this has either lessened or I've gotten used to it as it was really only an issue for the first ride or two, but worth mentioning as I was worried the pants would be uncomfortable because of it. They're not. Pockets are deep, with zippers so they're actually useful for storing chapstick and the like. No cargo pockets or anything though, so not easily accessible while actually riding. The button at the waistband is a bit snug through the buttonhole, which I suppose is good as it won't come undone unexpectedly. Airflow is pretty good, both through the vents and just in general. At 70-75 degrees, I rode around with the vents closed and still felt like the pants breathed pretty well. As the weather has warmed, I've opened the vents and folded them back (took me a bit to realize you had to fold the snaps over twice to get them to latch) and they've been great. I've ridden in weather close to 85 degrees with them now and not been distracted by sweaty knees while riding. Lastly they actually look okay as pants. Wearing them into a restaurant for lunch you don't feel like a snowmobile rider. They're a bit "Mad Max" to pass for regular clothing, but not ridiculously bulky and they don't seem to make the "zip-zop-zip-zop" snowpants noise when you walk. Overall, I was looking for a good summer pant that wasn't huge and bulky, would still provide good protection, fit well and would last a long time. These pants hit all of these points as far as I could tell. The last one will bear out with time, but with a brand like Dainese, I have confidence they will serve me well for many seasons to come.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Elvia E O: I chose it because it looked great in the video, had great protective specs, and was supposed to have great air flow (very pleased) Jul 28, 2014
A S: They look great! Apr 26, 2014
Albert A: Because my wife said if I didn't buy them for her, she would cut me off. Fair enough? Nov 29, 2013
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

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

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

A shopper asked: Is there any protection in the hips? A little padding? May 17, 2012
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

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. Jan 13, 2012

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

  • 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.
