Drayko Drift Riding Jeans
Great Product and true sizing
I bought this jeans to have some protection while riding everyday and not wearing textile or leathers. I am a 40x30 in tomy hilfighers and 42 or 44 on Levis (depending on the cut) and this 42 fits well and a tiny bit loose. I guess a 40 would have been too tight.
The pants look really well made and the protection should do a much better job than a regular jean (which disintegrate with asphalt).
I hope I'll never have to test them, but for everyday ridiing they look great and you can walk into a bar without the stares.
Unless you are very tall you will need to get them hem, which is just as a regular jean.
I'm very happy with the pants and with revzilla's service, price and shipping.

Hubby very comfortable
Bought these pants as a gift for my husband. Unlike other moto jeans that were sent back as "too baggy," these fit well through the butt and crotch. In fact, they were rather enhancing and the whitewash finish makes him look stylish for a change. He said they are very comfortable when on the bike for long rides. The only negative is that he didn't care for the urban look of the large initial on the back pockets and asked that I tear the stitching out. I'll get around to it one day.

Not perfect, but I like them
I like them, they're good jeans. They're comfortable, I think they look good (though I unstitched the "D" logo from the back pockets) and they seem well made to me. They fit the way I would expect a loose-fit jean to be, though most of my jeans are slim. They cover my boots so I'm happy. The color seemed close enough to the picture for me, mine are probably a little lighter than pictured. They're very comfortable on and off the bike.
Criticisms: The pockets are too shallow for me, my phone almost doesn't fit without poking out the top. I've started keeping my phone in my jacket instead of in my jeans. The denim material is also a stretch denim, which I don't think is mentioned in the description. I'd have preferred 100% cotton, and a heavier denim would have been nice. The description also mentions them as a low waist though they seem more like a standard waist to me; they sit higher on my waist than my other jeans. Lastly, the "D" logo is ugly. It doesn't go away when you take out the stitching because the distressing is done after embroidery, but it's a lot less noticeable.
Overall I'm happy, they're basically what I expected. I'd have preferred a pocket for armor at the knees, but that's nitpicky. I think the price was good and the protection seems beefy enough for a jean.

Not what I expected
As I took the jeans out of the box, I noticed that the color was different than what they were supposed to be. The jeans were not blue, they were black. The fading was on point according to the product image. I was very disappointed about the color, but I decided to try them on. I did not consider keeping them. I had trouble putting them on because they were much tighter than what regular jeans of the same size and fit would be due to the Kevlar. I did go up a size as suggested. The pockets were also way too small. I could not fit anything in. I would not buy from Drayoko again.

Great Aussie riding jeans
These are the best riding jeans I have found - Aussie knowhow - just a pity like everything else that they are made in China - nice if we could make these things where the design and knowledge resides. They are much better than products that just have knee guards etc and also fit just like a normal jean - sizing and look is perfect for the weekend ride

Great jeans, but....
Bought these jeans about a year ago and find the size to be correct, they're comfortable and quite cool in the heat. However I'm disappointed with the top edge of the front pockets starting to fray quite bad from the back of my hands going into them and I've only ridden in them for about 4000km! For the price (AU$215.00 & bought in Australia) I expected better durability in these areas. Will now have to take them to a tailor and have them repaired, apart from that they've been great.

Stylish, comfortable, fit and look great.
I was concerned that these jeans would run a bit small and not fit in the waist, hips, and thighs but boy was I surprised. I wear a 38 in jeans and these pants fit right on the money. They are very comfortable on the bike and give just where they need too. They are made long so that they can be hemmed to fit.

looks good when off the bike
I have tried other riding jeans and these are my favorite. I purchased a pair of size 34, the waste fits the same as with my Levi's.The inseam is long and will require tailoring.if you are under six feet tall.
