Drayko Renegade Riding Jeans
Great price - great riding jeans
Good jeans for cruisers ... especially if wearing big size boots. Solid and comfortable with good pockets. No-frill jeans and seem to be tough and well made. Definitely keep out the wind chill on longer journeys. No pockets for additional armour.

Nice motorcycle jeans
I got about what I was expecting for what I paid. A little on the baggy/long side, but after having them hemmed a couple inches they sit much better. Not as much protection as you might like but better than your average pair of jeans.

Stretchy and comfortable
These pants come very long and have to be hemmed. Pockets are pretty short, and the fifth pocket is on the left side. That's usually where I stash my moto keys, so that'll take some getting used to. These pants are quite breathable, and far too cold for the fall morning commute. I'll get the most out of these pants in the summer months.

These jeans are great! They tend to run a bit large so order a size below you. Example: I usually wear a 36 waist so I ordered 34 and they fit perfectly without a belt. After breaking in, they now need a belt. They are comfortable and breath relatively well. What sold me was that they are CE rated and the drag test videos showed their abrasion resistance. They aren't hemmed so you'll need to find a tailor or hem them yourself. You'll also probably want to take in the legs to reduce baggy-ness. I wear the TRQ-Race Out boots by Dainese and even after taking in the legs, I can easily fit these jeans over the boots. They look like average jeans so you could wear them around town without anyone noticing.
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the product. I just wish they came in more colors than black/indigo.

High quality , peace of mind
I usually wear a 36 , ordered 34 and fit is perfect.
Does require hemming , but so do most pants.
Quality is apparent , just feel safer wearing these
Good buy for the price.

Pants provide great protection
The very first day I used the Drayko Renegade Pants, I had my first crash. I ended up high siding and sliding on dirt and ending up on the asphalt 15 ft away from my bike. I was expecting the pants to be heavily damaged and shredded to threads but the only damage was the dirt on the right side of my pants. These pants saved me from the pain of road rash. I would suggest getting one pants size down from what you would normally get. I wear a 36"US and went with a 34"US, fits like a glove unless you want over-pants then stick with your true size. You may want to get them hemmed to avoid dragging when you are not wearing your motorcycle boots.

Way more comfortable than overpants
I normally wear a 32/34. The size 30 in these fits me pretty well. Because they are stretchy, I almost think I could have gotten a 28. Definitely make sure you get one size smaller than you normally wear. They are comfortable and look about the same as standard wide-leg jeans. I wear them all the time at work and nobody can tell they aren't standard jeans. I wish they were a slimmer fit.
I went down once before in Kevlar-lined jeans and messed up my knees because the Kevlar was only over the front and twisted around on impact. They were a different much cheaper brand. That still makes me nervous with these jeans. I may end up sewing armor into the knees.

Flexible/stretch fit is great
Great styling, and fits according to your normal sizing. Material is not as thick and heavy as other denims, but built-in protection is really good and comfortable. It is a good Spring, Summer, Fall, riding pant, but you'll freeze in Winter because of the light weight and breathable fabric. You cannot just cut off the extra long pant legs, because the material frays to the extreme. I shortened them easily by using a double rolled hem with two layers of an iron- on hem tape you can buy at any large store. Wash in cold water, as I agree with others that hot water washing can slowly damage the material.
