Drayko Women's Drift Riding Jeans
Swimming in My Jean Size
I ordered a pair and they were HUGE! I bounce between a 5 and 7 jean size, or 26 -28, 35" inseam. Surprisingly, the length was great, had a little more flare that a boot cut jean, and the actual appearance was that of what you would expect from a
Miss Me jean. BUT! I ordered a size 8 because I read reviews that these were super tight in the thigh - wasn't the case for me as I could literally shake my booty and they would slip off. I'll be returning them for a smaller size, as I loved everything else about them!

Overall good quality but....
I received my Drayko jeans today, while the quality was good the low riding fit is too low. They should have raised it up an inch or so. I will have to wear a belt to keep them in place. When I lean over I look like a plumber! I am going to keep them since I believe the jeans are very durable and would make me a safer rider. I ordered my regular size us and they fit good. Bottom fits over boot easily! they look nice but then again its not about the look its about safety

Yes, these are relaxed fit, low rise protective jeans. Just as advertised
First of all I am 5' 9" 150ish pounds, 38" hips. These jeans fit a bit looser than my typical size 10 pants. This is fine because I can wear my leggings underneath, comfortably. They are low rise but do sit higher in the back so when you are seated on your bike there is not a gap. I do need to wear a belt to keep them properly in place which I do not normally do when wearing jeans.
These are my first pair of Kevlar lined jeans so I am not used to the bulky knees, hips and bottom, but they are not uncomfortable--instead rather comforting knowing I am protected. If you are concerned about jeans being too snug and like low rise, these may be perfect for you.

I am 5'10" and normally wear a size 12. I ordered these in size 16 which is a US 12. I found they are low rise and the fit and length is very good. These are my favorite jeans to wear when riding now.

Haven't worn it much
I ordered these jeans after trying on a friend's pair and loving the fit and style.. Also it was known for its quality so thought I was winning! Unfortunately the sizing was slightly off, and even though I followed the sizing grid and checked my friends sizing, the pants seem to run a little small.. It's such a tight fit that Ihave only worn it once on the bike with the optimism that it'll stretch out.. Will buy another pair once I sell these though as I'm loving the cut and the fit on my hips (when I squeeze into them).

Good Idea Poor Execution
I purchased a pair of these jeans on 08/17/14 and received them on 08/22/14. I read the reviews on these jeans and several others before I was willing to pay such a high price. I am 5'5 140 riding a 2006 Kawasaki Ninja 650R. I ordered a size 8 because I would rather them be a little big than too small.
When they arrived, I tried them on immediately and went for a ride. I will say the waist is slightly larger than a normal size 8 but the thigh area is certainly very tight. If I would have gotten a size 6 the waist may have fit better but I think the thigh area would have been way too tight to pull up. I am constantly pulling them up because the waist has such a high back which rides down when riding even while wearing a belt. I couldn't wear a pair of leggings under these pants due to the thigh area being such a tight fit. The jeans are warmer than a normal pair of jeans but that is expected with the kevlar lining.
Unfortunately on 09/24/14, I got to test out how good these jeans were. I will say they held up very well and I only received a few bruises rather than a backside of road rash.

Protective trendy jeans
I received my Drayko jeans yesterday, looks good, fits good. My size always depends on the type of jeans, either a 4 or a 6. Based on the reviews I chose size 6 (I am 5.4", 115lbs), they are little lose around my waist, but a belt will keep it in place. I would have liked the waist to be a little bit higher, even I am use to wearing low rise jeans, but maybe on a bike, a higher waist might be beneficial. We will find out, but they sit well. They are a little long, I can try to roll them up, otherwise I have to take them in.
I rated Protection excellent, as I have to believe this, but hope never to find out. Durability, most of my jeans I have for years, so I do not expect different.
Love the color, the material is soft, the kevlar padding inside feels soft on the skin, they are little bit heavier than regular jeans, but it wears nice and comfy.

I purchased these for the protection, but to also be able to wear them when i'm off the bike and hanging out. They are fairly comfy and they look great!
