Drayko Cargo Pants
Great riding pants!
The pants are rather true to their size. The legs are kinda baggy which I like - works well in a riding stance and with boots. Airflow is pretty good - not too hot in the summer. When it was getting colder, I found it easy to layer up. There was still enough room under the pants to wear jeans; and personally I still found it comfortable.
They seem durable and padded in the right spots - I hope to never have to find out how durable or abrasive resistance they actually are.
I love the cargo pants style.
Unfortunately, these are my first and only riding pants, so I don't have much to compare them too, but I would definitely recommend them.

fiance things I look hot in these pants
And that right there is best thing you can say about these pants other than they protect you in an accident. Well, I haven't gone down in them yet so I can't comment on that. I am a 34 waist 32 inseam in pants normally and these are no exception. The one great thing is that I have very muscular legs and often I bulge the thighs out a bit in most jeans so I have to get relaxed fit and just wear a belt. These fit like relaxed fit jeans and they aren't tight fitting, which is fine I guess. I do still have to wear a belt and they do sit a little higher than my jeans. The belt loops seem sturdy and I bet you could loop them into a jacket if that option was available. They are not too warm in the summer in MD and now that I've been riding in upper 30's/ lower 40's temps, I can say they are just warm enough for that as well. The pockets are big and I can fit a lot in them. Even my kindle touch with the leather case on it. If I wear my big boots I can walk around in these pants without them hitting the ground. The other great thing about them is that my work has a no jeans policy and these technically meet the work requirements so I'm good there.Oh and I have gotten compliments from my coworkers about how good my butt looks in these pants.

I've been looking at a variety of Kevlar enhanced bike pants lately. These are positioned at a low price point, and the protection they offer shows it. The reinforced areas are limited compared to other products. No armor insert locations. If price is your absolute priority, and the alternative is wearing no protection, certainly these are an improvement, but they really didn't offer enough protection for me. Style and fit are personal taste. It looks to me like you could remove the tacky yellow label with a razor blade.

Great for those with real quads
It's nice to find a pair of pants that fit those of us with bigger quads and glutes. Sure the calves get a little baggy and flap but who cares?
Could use a little more room in the trunk but they do work.
Khaki is a great color for not wearing jeans or the other textile motorcycle pants.
Will purchase more.

Great pair of protective cargo pants
This is my second pair of pants from Drayko. The other pair is their jeans. These pants are very comfortable and hardly notice they are motorcycle jeans aside from the weight. There are only two gripes that I had with the pants. One of them is the ugly rectangular logo on the right cargo pocket. It would have been better if they had a logo that was a little more subtle like some of their jeans. The other one is that it would be nice if the pants legs would taper a little bit at the bottom kind of like a boot cut so that it won't drag over your shoes without having to roll them up. The Drayko Drift jeans have it perfect because it's long enough for coverage, but narrow enough so that it doesn't hang over your riding shoes/boots. Other than that, would just like to see additional colors other than the two choices.

Excellent everyday pants.
As a daily commuter, I made it a point to not buy regular pants anymore. I looked around for black pants with abrasion resistance, knee armor, and cargo pockets, and it had to look more or less like a regular pant.
The only thing missing in these is the knee armor, but the pants are so nice that I don't mind. I am 6'2" 200lbs and ordered a 34, which is what I normally wear. I prefer about a 36" inseam. These fit extremely well, do not require a belt but are not too tight (they loosen slightly after a few days), do not show my ankles when riding (or ever), and are very comfortable - lightly padded, even. The hand pockets are wide and loose so it isn't a pain to stick your glove in there, and I have no complaints about the rest of the pockets either.
Last, my girlfriend says they are slimming and look sleek and modern. Much better than the cargo sweatpants I wore on our first date.
