Saved me during a crash
Was wearing these during a pretty bad low side.

Pros: No road rash or broken bones or hospital visits! Protected me amazingly well. And they're Dainese, so they look baller.

Cons: I didn't really think about it and maybe its not a con, but if you fall in these, or any textile pants I guess, they get pretty much destroyed. But I bought these again, they're great.
Also, on impact, the shin guards dug into my shins a bit at the bottom. So, again not really a con because they did waaaay more good.

Good airflow, stylish fit
At 5'3" and 117 lbs, I bought these in a size 42. I typically wear a 0 or 2 in regular pants. I can wear a good wicking baselayer under them without trouble.

The pants fit well, with decent adjustability. I wish the velcro adjustments for the waist had a little more length on them, but I can remedy that by sewing on an additional piece to get more contact area. I've not yet had a problem, but with the tabs snugged down, there's not much overlap.

Knee and shin armor is well-placed, though when standing the top of the knee armor can dig a bit into your leg. This is not a problem when on the bike and has become less noticeable over a few wearings. No hip armor, though I think I probably have room to use some if I figured out a way to attach it (or wore armored leggings underneath).

The pants are plenty long, though I have short legs. This resulted in a small problem: the extra material can bunch behind the knee, which is slightly uncomfortable. After a few rides, this has either lessened or I've gotten used to it as it was really only an issue for the first ride or two, but worth mentioning as I was worried the pants would be uncomfortable because of it. They're not.

Pockets are deep, with zippers so they're actually useful for storing chapstick and the like. No cargo pockets or anything though, so not easily accessible while actually riding. The button at the waistband is a bit snug through the buttonhole, which I suppose is good as it won't come undone unexpectedly.

Airflow is pretty good, both through the vents and just in general. At 70-75 degrees, I rode around with the vents closed and still felt like the pants breathed pretty well. As the weather has warmed, I've opened the vents and folded them back (took me a bit to realize you had to fold the snaps over twice to get them to latch) and they've been great. I've ridden in weather close to 85 degrees with them now and not been distracted by sweaty knees while riding.

Lastly they actually look okay as pants. Wearing them into a restaurant for lunch you don't feel like a snowmobile rider. They're a bit "Mad Max" to pass for regular clothing, but not ridiculously bulky and they don't seem to make the "zip-zop-zip-zop" snowpants noise when you walk.

Overall, I was looking for a good summer pant that wasn't huge and bulky, would still provide good protection, fit well and would last a long time. These pants hit all of these points as far as I could tell. The last one will bear out with time, but with a brand like Dainese, I have confidence they will serve me well for many seasons to come.

Also great
So I had my eye on these pants for awhile, was trying to decide between pants with liners and just flat out textile warm weather riding pants. I went into Revzilla under the idea that I'd fit into a 42, I am normally a size 6 in jeans. I tried pulling the 42s over my tush, and that wasn't happening. I am 5'5" and 120 pounds, the 44s fit my leg length and my waist just fine...with adjustments of velcro straps. The 44s give me a chance to wear some skinny jeans or other smaller pant underneath them. I got to road test them finally yesterday, and boy the air flow when the pockets are open...is fantastic.

They are a good pant and attach to my Dianese jacket flawlessly. The knee protection goes from the top of the knee down to half of the shin. I highly recommend these!

I have 2 pair, I love these pants but liked the old shin protectors better ( can I buy a set? )
I bought a pair at the end of last year, but I bought them straight from dainese, Revzilla didn't have in Stock ( and once a year dainese offers free shipping to the states, it happen to fall during there free shipping) they were a little big, but with the velcro straps and as the fall was arriving I figured perfect I'll use as an over pant, other than a little bit big (not in a bad way, and not to much) they are perfect (woman want thigh, hip protection yes but we don't want to look like we have huge hips and legs, well we can't have our cake and eat it to no thigh or hip protection here, I do have the dainese hard shorts for daring days, and dirt, I use with the bigger pant)

I am 5'7" 140 lbs

Pair one size 46, I use these as an over pant, if not wearing pants under I have to at least wear shorts or they are just to big (the reason I bought a second pair) the knee/shin protectors are long and fairly wide contoured to your leg, removable via a pocket with velcro, soft and squishy on your body side but hard plastic on the outer side. I purchased some boots several pair worried about how they would fit with the shin protectors, the dainese "in" series is awkward, however they plugged right in to both the sidi and dainese "out" series so perfectly, they even have a little contour to them honestly I think dainese designed them to fit it boots, because the little contour seems to be perfect for boot height I ended up with the dainese tourqe out boot, paired with the pants I feel really protected all hard protection from toes to top of knees nothing really soft, just a wall of ce certification ;-)

I'll put some pictures in of the different knee/shin protectors

Pair 2 size 44 ( my height and weight didn't change) big difference from the 46 ( I originally was contemplating between the 42 and 44, worried the 44 would still be to big, but kinda worried the 42 might be tight, I decided to try the 44 figuring I'd just do an exchange if there was an issue) so glad I got the 44 no doubt 42 would have been to small/tight no doubt, the 44 fits great perfect no Room to tighten the velcro straps, but definitely not to tight either yes they make you butt look good there not lieing! The material is kinda stretchy ish hug your curves and have a little more of a hipster type pant waist fit instead of a waist belly button fit these sit under well under the belly button plenty high in the back, the knee /shin protectors well they changed then :-( I don't have my wall of ce certification anymore, there like 2/3 hard 1/3 soft, still squishy on your body side and hard over knee but know only hard on about 1/2 your shin then soft, when I put my boots on they still kinda go in but can bunch a little and sorta flip out because it's not hard here soft, the hard on the shin protector isn't as wide either, but between the hard shin and the boot there is a section were the soft part of the shin is all I have like boot stops 2-3 inches before hard shin starts, my wall is now broken leaving me feeling less protected, they are shorter and less hard protection, still love the pants, but would love to order a replacement set of protectors but the old version, which seems not possible as no one ( not even dainese) sells any knee/shin protectors for your dainese pants, oh well I guess I might just switch them back and forth (totally annoying) Revzilla if you know of a fix please email me :-)

but honestly you'll still love this pant, my sister has a pair. These are seriously the most stylish and butt looking good / most protective pant your ganna find pricey yes, I was very hesitatant on my first order (because of price) but love them enough to buy a second pair!

My original pair (46) have over 7000 miles on them and still look great no loose stitches, and only a little teeny tiny but of wear on the inside of the knees were they slide on my tank protectors when leaned over and my knee is up there, there pretty aggressive tank protectors, and it's only slight wear very slight .

I am very happy with these pants!

Great fit!
After a ton of research, I tried 4 different pants from Revzilla, these were by far the best in terms of fit, style and utility. You will feel reasonably protected without feeling bulky. Has air vents, pockets, can zip to Dainese jacket (if you have one), and most importantly, the knee/shin pads actually sit where they are supposed to! Pads can be taken out if you want to walk around comfortably for longer periods time, they will look like street pants. No hip protection or place to put hip pads though. Overall, should cost a less but it's Dainese so that kind of price is expected I guess. Also, I am 5'6 and the length is perfect; women 5'8 and above would find these pants too short.

Great fit, great style, comfortable, layers well. Love these pants!
I'm providing a detailed review because motorcycle pants are so hard to fit and attractive, protective motorcycle pants are so hard to find. The New Drake Air pants fit, look, and feel great thanks to stretch fabric and low-profile, adjustable tabs at the waist. The Dainese designer who produced this pant deserves an award, a raise, and a promotion. Other manufacturers, please look at these pants and upgrade your designs to compete. Please.

I am 5'5" and 135-40 pounds. I wear size 6 or 8 pants, size 29 or 30 jeans. I am pear-shaped but proportional. My bum and thighs are curvy. I'm in my 50s. I still look good in well-made pants. I have always had to try on many pairs of any type of pant to find one pair I like. Shopping for motorcycle pants is almost as awful as shopping for a bikini.

Ride
2016 Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro

Style
I live in an urban area and want motorcycle gear that looks good and protects on par with gear made for men. I want motorcycle gear that is NOT pink. I want motorcycle gear that layers well over street clothes without making me look like the Pillsbury Doughboy. The New Drake Air pants do all that. Thanks to the stretch fabric, they are form-fitting AND flattering. Paired with black motorcycle boots they are stylish enough to wear when dining out in trendy but casual Portland, Oregon. When I want to wear street clothes at my destination, the New Drake Air layers comfortably over stretch jeans, slim pants, or leggings while still looking great.

Weather
These are all-season pants in Portland. During Portland's typical drizzle I just dry the motorcycle seat before climbing on. On the rare days I'm riding in a downpour, I layer a pair of women's fitted waterproof golf pants over the New Drake Air, with or without pants underneath.

Comfort and Wearability
The New Drake Air stretch fabric make this pant super-comfortable. The pants are fine bare-legged but even better with a temperature appropriate knee-length or full-length base layer. The knee pads do slip down when I get off the bike or stand up from sitting in a chair, especially with short boots; my taller boots usually hold them up. I just re-position the knee pads upon standing and generally they stay in place as I walk around. I check the position again before I get back on the bike. Occasionally I just remove the knee pads altogether. They slip easily in and out from the outside of the pant, through the zippered thigh vent.

Minor Design/Quality Issues
I bought my New Drake Air pants in June 2014, so these issues may have already been addressed. But for what it's worth... First, the single button at the waist was not sewn properly. The closure doesn't lay flat and the button has been dangling on a sturdy but long knot of thread almost out of the box. Second, and more importantly, the buckles (for lack of a better word) for the adjustable waist tabs are not fully sewn into the waist band so they slide around. I can line them up vertically and 5 minutes later they are out of place, horizontal, and the pants are a full inch wider at the waist. I've learned to live with it and just let the buckles stay horizontal in their loop. But I expect better at this price point.

For the Next Design Update
Longer boot zippers. But only if longer zippers can be placed without widening the pant legs. I'm good at balancing on one foot as I remove my boots, take off the New Drake Air pants to reveal my jeans, then put my boots or street shoes back on. But it's challenging. I'll happily continue balancing, though, if longer zippers still don't allow enough room for shoes and boots. Don't widen the legs!!!!

Optional or removable fastening system. I don't have a matching jacket. Probably most people who wear these pants don't have a matching jacket.

Redesign the adjustable waist tabs. Velcro ruins women's clothing. Velcro ruins breathable, wicking, athletic fabrics. Velcro should never be placed where it can come in contact with other clothing.

...An aside about hook and loop, in general and especially re jackets. Where hook and loop is appropriate, how about QUIET hook and loop? Does such a thing exist? Or a quiet alternative? It's impossible to enter a room, eg a meeting, and remove a motorcycle jacket without attracting a lot of attention. It's especially embarrassing when I'm late!...

Worries
I worry that the Dainese New Drake Air pants will be discontinued before I remember to buy another pair.

Favorite pants for protection
This was a good pick for this hot weather. I feel very protected and don't feel like I'm wearing snow pants--although they're not casual enough to wear on an everyday basis. I wear these when I'm going for long rides.

Versatile, protective and sexy!
I LOVE these pants! They are super-stylish, versatile and unfussy for my frequent urban-assaults. Wearing them walking around town is easily done after removing the knee/shin armor . You won’t look like you are wearing riding pants. I have 37 inch hips and the 42’s fit perfectly snug – NO room for layering underneath. Look out though - they will make your butt look really good, if you're into that kind of thing. :)

I do agree with other posts regarding a preference for the back to be higher. As far as ventilation, they block wind fairly well and the thigh vent does help. I’m in Portland with cool mornings/warm afternoons and frequently go to the coast/mountains. I've found these are perfect for variable temperatures. I’ve worn these on a day ranging from 58 – 82 F and been very happy and comfortable.

If you are looking for a really hot-weather riding pant these may not be the best choice. For me, they are near perfection.

Good but pricey women's pants
I can't really find fault with these pants except for the price. They fit well (followed the sizing guidelines) and presumably do the job of protecting knees and shins (knock wood). No hip protection, though. They look better than most other women's motorcycle pants. Bottom line is that these are probably your best bet given the choices. I would wear them into a restaurant and not feel too conspicuous. There is still room for improvement in women's gear and pants could be a focus.

Very nicely designed and super comfortable.
They look and feel great on. Slightly warm on a 29degree Celsius Melbourne, Australian day. Wore them on a night ride when it was quite cool (10degrees Celsius) and was surprised to feel how warm they kept me and were wind proof. The side zips at the bottom of each leg are great to zip over boots. They look great on and off the bike...still shows off our feminine curves whilst been practical for bike riding. I purchased a size 44 even though I normally wear a size 6US (which would be a 42) and I am 156cm and 57kg...they are a good fit with a little extra room if I need to wear thermals.

What is the inseam on sizes 42 and 44?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Feels like about 30'. I'm 5'2" and they are perfect when I'm riding. The stretch and narrow ankle opening looks very nice and has no bulk around my ankles, while fitting comfortably over my Daytona boots. These are my favorite riding pants.
Is there any protection in the hips? A little padding?
A shopper on May 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Mine did not come with any hip padding whatsoever (2015 model). What I did was purchase a pair of the EVS Youth Tug 02 Padded Riding Shorts in size M from Revzilla to wear underneath. At 33.5" hips, 25" waist, 28" inseam, these New Drake Air pants in size 40 fit like a glove, but the padded shorts are still comfortable underneath.
The Dainese web site lists these pants as made of "Mugello" fabric, whereas they are listed as 750 Cordura on the Revzilla site... clarification?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, that question will have to remain un-answered. Dainese doesn't conform to the typical Cordura ratings since their materials are all proprietary. My personal assessment is that Mugello fabric is in the neighborhood of 500D, but since we are comparing apples to oranges, no-one really has a "conversion chart" for Dainese fabrics to Cordura ratings.
Which boots do you wear with these pants? Any trouble with boots with shin armor (i.e. Sidi Fusion Lei, Dainese Siren, etc.) overlapping with the knee/shin armor on these pants and causing discomfort or (God forbid) unstylish bulging?
Jennifer M on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear them with icon elsinores now, and there's some overlap with the shin armor, but it's not uncomfortable for me, especially with my knees bent. (I'm 5'4" and wear a 42.) Previously I wore them with Alpinestars SMX - 5s and there was less of a conflict there, since those are about 1-3cms shorter than the elsinores. There's some serious unstylish bulging with the elsinores too, but the SMX -5s were not as bad since they're a less bulky boot. When I got these I thought I might be able to pull them off as casual pants here and there, but they look like motorcycle pants. My favorite motorcycle pants that I love, but there's no pretending they're casual.
my wifes got short legs. a 24" inseam. i guess these aren't for her?
Mosey L on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

I have about a 29" inseam and the pants work great for me, 5'5" and 130 pounds, I think I have size 42 but I can't find the tag to confirm. Your wife would likely need to get the pants hemmed, but I highly recommend them. Great fit, comfortable and flattering. Good luck.
can you remove the knee pads without taking the pants off? for walking around..

Which jacket would match the 'weight' or 'bulk' of these pants more:

the Dainese Women's Air-Frame Textile Jacket

or

the Dainese Women's Alice Textile Jacket

?

BEST ANSWER: Both are pretty close and will look good with the pants. I think the Alice might be a closer match in terms of materials. But the Air Frame has some great lines/mesh what will work nicely as well. It just depends on your riding style and how much protection/coverage for seasons you want.

I'd recommend watching the product videos if you haven't. They provide a ton of info (pros/cons) for each jacket.

Hope this helps!
Hello all--I love my New Drake Air pants and want to get my wonderful wife the women's version--but I'm confused on the sizing. She's 5'10", 125 lbs dripping wet, and has long legs. Like a 35 inch inseam. She wears a size 2-4 dress. Any thoughts on the size of the pants I should order?

BEST ANSWER: I have a Drake Air pants size 40. I'm 4'11" and 104 lbs. The 40 fits nice but the length is about 3" too long.
Can you use these pants for dirt biking also?
