good casual protection

Don't want road rash from wearing regular jeans if I slide.

Great clearance price AND they still had my size. Plus, it's Dainese, so it's quality stuff. Plus, these were one of the few riding jeans that offered a knee AND shin protection option (with the Kit J inserts).

Great pant protection; purchased with the knee guards and they fit great. I never ride without them.
Anthony V on Jul 23, 2014
Chose them as they're by far the best looking riding Jeans I have personally come across!
Predrag I on Jun 6, 2014
Better protection than regular jeans, and they look very stylish.
Jayce M on May 27, 2014
Picked these based on looks and for short urban trips and city commuting
Joel O on May 24, 2014
I chose these jeans as they fit perfectly and look awesome. Plus the Dainese brand is one that I trust in for quality materials and design :)
Graham B on May 4, 2014
I love to ride but when I'm off my bike I don't want to look like I'm just about to get back on it!
Max M on Apr 10, 2014
Very understated jeans. most will not notice that they are armored.
Mike Z on Dec 16, 2013
Looks cool. Offers some protection
Robert L on Dec 11, 2013
From reading reviews, these pants seem to be very comfortable and durable. They look well crafted.
Michael D on Nov 29, 2013
The closest thing to wearing top notch security wear with out looking like you are going to the track... THESE PANTS ARE AWESOME!!! best $240 i have spent... after the new set of tire obviously!
andrea p on Sep 6, 2013

Anthony V on Jul 23, 2014
I am confused with the sizing: the size chart ranges from 44 to 60 whereas the available size ranges as low as 28 to 44. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs the size chart indicates I choose a size 46 but it's not available. Is it waist line the "choose a size" referring to?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I think the size chart is in European sizing, and the available sizes are in American sizing. They were when I bought my pants. So I'm guessing the "choose a size" refers to the waist size you wear in American pants. A 46 in European is a 30 in US. So if that's your size you should be good. Keep in mind what reviewers have said about the way they fit, otherwise. They are really nice pants, enjoy.
Will these Dainese D1 Kevlar armor ready jeans truly provide me with enough protection if I plan to ride daily while commuting to school (a lot of highway riding) or should I look for something with more protection? A $200-$500 jump in price is quite a bit, as a new rider, I'm finding it difficult to decide should I start small scale, or am I wasting my money, if I'm going to decide to upgrade to better protection more expensive gear in the near future. Thanks for the advice.
A shopper on Sep 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The level of protection you want is kind of personal. I have not gone down in them thankfully, but these jeans will definitely provide good abrasion protection. I can't remember the exact model, but I do have a pair of the dainese undergarmets with hip and knee pads so I can add some joint protection. Another option for commuting would be over pants with fully articulated knee and hip gaurds, but I personally think these are a decent compromise - and you can wear them all day, despite their thickness. My 0.02 these definitely cover you for abrasion even if the kevlar is only in patches. If you really want track style protection for the commute get overpants.
what is the inseam...to ankle or heel...if 34 inch waist,,what would the inches be then for the inseam for the 34 inch waist?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Im 6'2 with long legs. I ordered a 33, (which I wear 34 normal jeans) and they fit great and are very long... even with them rolled up to expose the reflective logo.
Could the forcefield knee armor be used instead of the Kit J Knee Guards? If yes, would there be any issues with fitment such as the armor moving around?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Officially, only the Kit J Knee Guards will interface with the D1 Jeans correctly (there's a little pocket that they go in). There's no reason why you couldn't use another type of armor, but our guess is that you would have some issues with it fitting properly. Since we haven't been able to try out these new jeans yet, we cannot say with certainty whether or any other type of armor would fit, but we know the pockets are pretty small - so I would be wary of trying to fit a different brand of armor in them.
OKay, there's D1 Kevlar jeans, D1 Kevlar armor jeans, and D1 Denim jeans. Can someone lay out the differences here??? I'm looking for best protection in an accident on it's own without any under or over garments, minus underwear of course, hahah! I'm sure crapping my pants will also provide a layer of protection. Lol.
A S on Sep 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I bought the D1 Kevlar Armour Ready jeans and I bought the Dainese knee pads to put in them at the same time. i actually went to revzilla's boutique in philly and tried them on.

I'm 6' tall and 165 lbs. I bought a size 31 waist that are 34 long. they fit perfectly. that said, i'm usually a size 32 waist but apparently they run a little big.

the kevlar in these jeans is actually interwoven right into the denim so you don't see those yellow panels like you do in other kevlar jeans.

they are armour-ready which means they have pockets in the knees to put knee pads in. you gotta buy them seperately, which i did...

i can't speak as to the difference between these and the non armour and D1 denim but i assume that the denim is just denim (i.e. no kevlar) and that the D1 Kevlar is the same as mine but without the armour pockets.

the pockets are cool because they are truly adjustable and have a pretty wide range so if you have longer or shorter thighs you can adjust accordingly.

i washed them once in cold water and left them out to air dry, per the instructions they gave me at the shop. btw, there's a woman at the boutique whose name, if I recall correctly, is Kat. she knows more about riding clothes than anyone i've ever met.

i rode about 200 miles on the highway in the D1's, with my leather chaps over them, and I was totally comfortable. the next day i had to take my bike to the shop and i put the jeans back on and ran around town for a bit before i actually got on the bike and dropped it off. they were super comfortable for walking around but...they will be pretty warm in the summertime.

i've been riding for most of my life and i was always the idiot who just rode in regular denim jeans...that is until my first major accident last summer. i got BANGED UP hard and ended up in the hospital. if i had been wearing these D1's, things would have been a lot better for me.
I know several of us are excited to order these ;)

A shopper on Apr 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: On the slow boat from Italy.

I used to be in the cycling business. Getting cycling clothing from Italy was a test of patience. Orders eventually arrived, but never everything you ordered and always late in the season. Forget about ordering more inventory later on. Shop owner resorted to recruiting an Alitalia flight attendant as his importer / middle man (woman)! Worked much better.

I'm planning on ordering these pants as soon as the come in. Hopefully soon because my neighbors give strange looks every time I ride by them in my underwear!
Is the fly a zipper or a row of a few buttons?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Dainese D1 Kevlar Armor Ready Jeans feature a short row of individual buttons for frontal fly closure. There is no rear fly, thankfully, so distinguishing it as "frontal" is a moot point.
I bought a pair of the Dainese D1 Kevlar Jeans last year but did not get any knee armor. I would like to buy some now but am unsure if this Kit J will work. They look awfully big for the pockets in my jeans. I notice the D1s are now titled "armor ready" for the Kit J. Do you think the knee armor will fit in the jeans I already have?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Sadly, no, the Kit J Knee guards will only work with the newer Armor Ready D1 jeans. They have different attachments and shapes. Your best bet would be to rock a pair of Dainese Knee V guards strapped to your legs underneath if you have the original D1's.
