Drayko Women's Drift Riding Jeans
Pants too low
Overall look of the jeans are very nice. Price is average, didnt find anything lower than on revzilla, even though I think the price in general is still too high. My issue with the jeans are they are WAY to short in the hip area...they are definitely 'low risers'. I am very tall, and maybe that's the issue. But as soon as I sit on the bike, the pants fall a little too low ;) So when you purchase them, make sure you sit to make sure they really fit you!

True fit. First choice.
These jeans fit true to size. I went by measurements since I'm not always strictly one size in pants. I was a little worried they would be small since I was on the edge of the measurements, but went with the advice I received from someone at Revzilla and they fit perfectly. They aren't tight or baggy. They are boot fit with a flare at the calves and are lower in front than in the back, although I still wear a belt to prevent them from riding too low while I'm on the bike.
They are pretty comfortable and they look like normal jeans.
I feel so much more protected wearing these and I don't have to sacrifice looks.

This is a sturdy, well-fitting pair of jeans.
I needed a pair of reinforced jeans for riding, and these fit true to size. I agree with other reviewers that it is a bit low-riding, and does require a belt to help keep it from "drifting" too low when you sit on the motorcycle. Other than that, they fit great, fit fine over my cruiser boots, and are comfortable, and offer good protection.

great riding jeans
The fit and the kevlar protection on these jeans are great. Despite the padding, they still fit nicely (they don't make you look fat) and comfortably (lots of stretch in the denim. They're warmer than other pants because of the kevlar lining. But they are by far the most stylish riding jeans I've seen in the actually kevlar reinforced line of riding wear. Get more styles in this product line (which seems to be the Australian Draggin' Jeans, relabeled)! also note: between the kevlar and aussie sizing, these run small. I usually wear 0-2, and got the 6 which fits great.

Great riding pants!
Overall these are great pants despite the lack of air flow. They fit well if not a tad big and a little long in the leg. The tag at the back on the waistband is very itchy though! I can't say much about the protection as I haven't gone down in the pants but the padding in the butt, knees and down the outsides of my thighs is very reassuring.

I am having to return these jeans because they are too small for me. I am a regular size 8 and from the reviews I thought that size would be okay because of the stretch...I guess my hips and hind parts are larger than I thought because I couldn't even get them buttoned plus there was ridiculous plumber's crack. So, if you are extra hippie with a lil "junk in your trunk", go a size or 2 up. I haven't come across a size chart to see what I need to get, so I am going to take a chance with a 10 and hopefully won't have to send that back.

Great Kevlar Jean
Observations are similar to other reviewers. Low rise in rear!

riding comfort, wish for armor pockets
Starting with fit: I'm 5'3", 112 lbs. I have the size 4 (equal to size 8 Aussie & tagged that way in jeans)--they fit fine. I'm petite, the legs are long: they will need slight hemming. My experience is similar to others: the waist is a bit loose and requires a belt. The loops fit up to a 1.5" belt. The stretchy material is very comfortable--but it also contributes to the loose waist issue. Wear a belt and you won't expose more than you mean to. These are not the lowest low-rise jeans I own. I'd call them low/mid-rise. They are noticeably lower in the front than the back. I wanted these jeans for the kevlar/dyneema protection--which is supposed to transfer heat and have high impact & abrasion resistance. There are no pockets for additional knee or hip armor, a feature I would have liked. The safety lining makes the jeans feel heavy and substantial, though the fabric still has a lot of give and breathes okay. The interior abrasion panels against skin feel like a wide loop terry cloth. Not itchy or scratchy, but soft and pleasant. The seat and thigh fits fashionably close to skin. Some might call this tight, I might too--but it's more fair to say very fitted. The fit relaxes at the knee and is incredibly comfortable when in the riding position. It's amazing. And the 'fashion' cut of the Drayko jeans is definitely boot-cut. This is my preferred real world jeans style: nice to carry this over into my riding jeans. In fact, these jeans can easily be worn off bike and no one would be the wiser. Not everyone will like the whiskering effect across the pelvis & the color-faded style. It's not out of step with many other trendy jeans, personally I'm not bothered by it. I like the fit and style. With the purchase of some slip on knee armor, I think I'll feel even better about these becoming my main riding jeans.
