Drayko Drift Riding Jeans
Great protection and feel
This jeans are great. They breathe well enough and the fit is perfect. Obviously the protection is the main point and I can say after a couple of fall offs of road that they fullly acomplish their main goal by protecting the legs from scratches and bruises. The only minor issue to be aware of is that if they get wet they will weigth like a ton, this is caused by the inner protection absorbing liters of water, buy a rain protecting gear and you will get around this. The service from Revzilla is always the best!

Not perfect, but better than the others!
Previous reviews stated these were on the larger side, I would say this is not quite the case for the pair I bought, not when compared with standard jeans. The description that comes with them states they are low-rise, which surprised me for riding jeans and that is true to a point; that said once I got used to the snug fit they have become comfortable and seem comfortable on the bike, on the rides I've taken so far. They are well made, certainly better than the Icon jeans purchased previously and seem to have decent protection, although I don't intend to put it to the test anytime soon!

Great jeans - Will likely need to be tailored.
I went down in my Drayko Drifts at about 25mph. Not a scuff on them. They're a little warm in the summer due to the kevlar stitching. They look good except for the insignia on the rear pocket. They come in a single (long) length and will require tailoring for a lot of riders. I will be buying more in the future.

Nice Pair of Riding/Fashion Jeans
As my wardrobe is utterly filled with Revzilla products, I am on a mission today to be helpful and provide an up-to-date review of as many products as possible. As such, this review will be current (as of late January 2014), quick and to the point.
First off, I am a street/custom rider, so the brand's approach is dead-on for me. Might not be for racers and what have you, but to each their own.
The "Drift Riding Jeans" are impressive; however, some comments... The fit in the waist is as advertised, but they are long. I normally wear 32x32, but had to get the 32x34 - that's what is available. Now, I know that riding jeans are intended to be longer than normal, but this will take some getting used to. Also, it may limit someone from using them to go say bar-hopping. The material is somewhat thicker than Levi's, but it isn't overkill. You can definitely tell protection lives in these fellas. The styling is righteous, no complaints there. Overall, I am happy I made the purchase. Satisfied. 5 out of 5 stars for these reasons.

Exactly as advertised
Reinforced jeans will never be as good as full armored pants, let's just get that out of the way. But as far as they go, these are very solid. I don't own a car so I take my bike everywhere and getting all geared up can be a hassle. So I'm slowly replacing all my regular jeans with motorcycle jeans so that even if it's just a quick ride to the grocery store I always have at least minimal coverage.
These pants are comfortable, look good, fit well, have more than the usual amount of reinforcement, and I really can't find anything to complain about. I just wish there were more color variations available as I'd like to buy a few pairs.

I live in southern Florida, and wear these 90% of the time I ride. They are slightly warmer than regular jeans, but breathe well enough when riding. Wearing them all day, you notice they are a little heavier, but not uncomfortably so. They fit true to size, and look better than regular jeans. Wish they had a 5th pocket on the right (instead of, or in addition to the one on the left).
Haven't crash tested them, but having seen the test videos on the internet, I think they would hold up just fine to abrasion.

Great Jeans for on and off the bike!
I love these Jeans - I got them when they didn't have the Dainese D1's in stock and I was initially pretty disappointed but in the end I was very happy with my purchase. If you're a bigger (read chubby) guy you might have an issue - for a little bit I was annoyed because they were kinda lowriders, exposing my underwear to those behind me. I was about to give up on them when I simply cinched up my belt a little tighter than normal and they now are perfect!

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