Drayko Drift Riding Jeans
Finally a riding jean that is what is claims
These Drayko riding jeans are one of my favorite pairs of jeans. They have all day comfort, no rivets to scratch or tear your baby. The fashionability is spot on and yet still quite manly. I'd recommend them to anyone not wanting to wear leathers all of the time, but who still want safety.

Levi's for riding
Fit, style, comfort its all good. I'm a 34"x 34" and I didn't have to hem these (bonus). Like other reviewers I got rid of the bid old "d"s on the back and now they look like a regular pair of jeans. I forget I'm wearing Kevlar once they're on.

These riding jeans are awesome. The waist size is a little bit small, and the length is very long, so its a weird fit when not riding. Also the front pockets are small, but have been fitting an Iphone 6 plus inside without trouble.

I bought these jeans with money that was supposed to go toward a Wr400 but since i am riding on my dads shadow sabre 1100 i figured that i should invest in safety first. It was completely worth the money. I got these jeans 3 days after i ordered them and i flipped s$*t because of how fast it was. They are very good looking like designer jeans but much better. They feel very comfortable and have the most area of protection i could find. My ONLY complaint about them is that the knee armor could be raised one inch up, it doesnt cover my whole knee until in a riding position but i think it'll do. Over all these jeans are worth every cent. Love em.

Pretty darn good...
Went after a set of low profile looking jeans with some added protection and ended up with these. I normally wear a 32x32 jean but it needs a generous cut in the legs, for this I had to go to a 34" waist version of these to fit. They do shrink some when washed so wash them before you hem. The legs tightened up some as well when washed but loosen up quickly when worn.
They are very comfortable. I've warn them going to work in 40* weather without feeling cold at all. In the warmer weather they are fine as long as you're moving. As soon as I get home, they come off if I'm hot. The big "S" on the back pocket is kinda lame. I liked the pants so much that I got my wife a pair so now we're cruising around with matching "S" embroider on our backsides, kinda goofy...
The pocket are a little short for my tastes, but I guess it makes it easier to get your keys with gloves on. The belt looks are of good construction and wide enough for a 1.75" belt if needed. They some super long so you can hem them to pretty much any length you need. Based on my other pant sizes, they would be considered a 38" inseam as they come. I had them hemmed so that when seated they would cover my boot like a normal jean would when standing. I would have preferred some ability to add impact protection of some kind to the knees, but the fit was so good and they were so comfortable I didn't look at other options for that.

No knee pockets
The jeans look good and fit well however they do not offer any protector pockets for the knees. Looks like I made a mistake because I actually want knee protection in my jeans. I think I will have a tailor saw pockets for the knee protectors..

I like the jeans, and with a couple changes, I'd think they were perfect riding jean.
1. The rear pockets. The embroidery is just too much. I have to remove it.
2. The front pockets. Please try and put a pocket in that can actually be used for holding something larger than a squashed tissue.
3. I measured my waistline at my belly button as 40". I bought the size 40 jeans. They're too big. They're not huge and I'm really not too worried about it since I can wear a belt or layer armor under these jeans easy, but it would be nice to have a slightly smaller jean. I was in a hurry and needed the jeans now and wanted the comfort of mind that a CE rated jean would give so I couldn't send them back. Word of warning...if the jean says 40, the waist size is 42; 38 is 40; 36 is 38; etc.
4. They're a bit long but when riding, it is nice not having a jean midway up my shin. Not really a complaint for me, but some may not like that. If you want shorter, you'll need to have them hemmed.
The denim is a nice stretch style denim which is very comfortable. The jeans, like all kevlar reinforced jeans will be a little warm on hotter days. These should be no different.
All in all, I'm very pleased with the jeans. A little pricey, but they're certified for abrasion resistance which is better than most of the other jeans on the market.

I normally where 32x30 levi. At the time of purchase 2 years ago the only size available was 34. I ordered 34 anyways. When I received them, of course they were too big. I spent the money to get them altered and hemmed as they were too long also.
I commute on a motorcycle 95% of the year considering the awesome weather in the beautiful state of Hawaii. And each time I've commuted on the bike, I've worn these jeans. They've held up terrifically in all of Hawaii's weather, even in the rain. They also fit well over my sidi mag 1 race boots just to put things in perspective.
Unfortunately, last week, I highsided my bike. After hitting the ground, I slid on my butt on asphalt for about 5 feet till I stopped in the grass. Fortunately, because of these jeans, I sustained only a friction burn (1st degree) on my butt. The pants did tear a little but didn't tear into my skin. I wear a studded belt with these pants and it also ripped the rear center belt loop.
Considering how long I've had them and how I ride practically every day in them, these jeans really impressed me on how well they performed. They are thick yet comfortable enough for me. With that being said, I will be placing another order of these jeans again.
I highly do recommend getting some hip armor and/or knee armor to where with these jeans as they are not impact resistant.
