Drayko Drift Riding Jeans
Great jeans & a great value for money. I also found that they helped to reduce the heat from from Ducati 1199.

Low quality, do not buy
Quite smooth and comfy but the zipper is low quality. Mine broke after 1 day of wearing the jean so now I cannot return it and I cannot wear it. It's $150 dollars you do not want to waste

Excellent Jeans ...
I wear a size 32 and these fit perfectly ... true to size, but must be hemmed given the 35" length. I normally wear size 32W 34L Lucky Brand "Vintage Straight" jeans and these fit exactly the same relative to waist and leg sizing ... not loose or tight in the legs (just right) and the rise is medium, not low per the description. The ONLY thing I CANNOT live with are the "D" Logo's on the back pockets. Hours with a stitch ripper and they are now gone. Whoever thought that was a good idea ...

Great pants! However, I don't think the front picture they have on the website accurately displays the style. They look a lot more "stone washed" than what is displayed.
That aside, these are awesome pants! Extremely comfortable and don't bunch up while riding. I hope to never have to utilize the "CE" part of the pant, but everything else is great.

Great Comfort, microscopic pockets. Impossible to carry cellphone or pens
These riding jeans are sincerely the most comfortable riding jeans I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. Multiple layers of kevlar reinforced material on nearly all panels, with built in "stretch" for the crotch and leg area for all sorts of riding positions.
They're a bit long, but simply rolling the pants at the bottom takes care of that.
However, the single most significant and most annoying about these pants are the pockets.
I have a Galaxy S4 cell phone. It barely fits into the pocket when on the bike. Pens threaten to stab me in my femoral artery, and once empty, I can only fit half of my hand into the pocket.
Everything I need to carry, I'd have to put in my jacket pocket or a backpack, because they simply don't fit into the tiny worthless pants pockets.

Drako Drift Jeans
I have tried several kevlar jeans from Dainese to Maple. Both of which were extremely expensive compared to the Drako jeans. As soon as I tried on the Drako jeans they fit great and were more comfortable than a regular pair of my jeans. I would highly recommend these to anybody wanting better protection than a standard pair of denim jeans.

Does exactly what it says
These jeans are pricey but are worth every penny. I was involved in a 40mph lowside and they barely had a scratch on them. I have since bought another pair since I can wear these as normal jeans for work or when I go out. They are a little thicker than basic jeans but are very light. Airflow is fine for those hot days, and when its cold the thicknes offers a bit more warmth than typical jeans. Stitching is superb and they are all day comfortable. If you don't want to look out of place or change when you get to your desination, yet want protection in a slide these are the jeans for you. They offer no impact protection though.

Good overall but some serious issues
I really wanted to like these jeans, but they simply have too many issues for me to recommend. Of course the big selling point of these jeans is the CE certification. However, they fit weird, everything seems too high. The knee armor barely covers the knees when you're on the bike - only about an inch or two of armor is below the knee. The rise of the jeans also seems small, they tend to bunch up in the crotch when on the bike. I guess they're supposed to be "sagged" lower than I'm comfortable, and I'm wearing them pretty low to begin with. The pockets are small, you can fit a smartphone in them but sitting with it in there is uncomfortable. The logos on the back pockets are tacky, I removed them but there's still an outline of them in darker denim color.

Small front pockets
