Poorly Designed Waist, Way too Short
The D-ring on the waist band (adjusts waist with velcro on both sides) is too large for the tightening bands. This means that the D always turns on its side from this ? to this ?. The result is that my pants are about 3" too wide in the waist and are constantly falling down. When off the bike I have to pull them up all the time because it's uncomfortable walking around with the knee armor below my knee. This was not the case when they were new, but broken in--this is how they are. Length: on the bike there is about a 3-4" gap between my 8" boots and the bottom of the pants. Leaves my lower leg open to the air so that debris hits my skin and my skin turns red and irritated from the engine heat constantly blowing by on the highway. I would not recommend these pants. Dainese needs to get their sizing and product testing under control. My other pair of Dainese pants, the Horizon pants are also unwearable since they are too tight (!) in the waist and cause serious hip issues that persist for weeks after even an hour of wear. Also way too short. I wear a 32" inseam, 26/27 jeans, 5'8", and own both pairs of Dainese pants in size 40.

My wife's go-to riding pants
Written by my wife:
I love, love, love these riding pants! They fit well and breathe in the hot Texas climate. The mesh portion is not big by any means but is placed well and the fact that the pant material has breath-ability to it makes the need for more mesh not necessary.I recently purchased two pair of summer riding pants and while I really like both pair these are definitely my preferred choice. They are great for the ride and the destination. Being able to remove the knee pads from the outside is a huge plus for walking around at your destination and the useable slash pockets (I tend to stand with my hands in my pockets; it takes the pressure off of my shoulders) are a feature I was looking for in riding pants. I haven't had them long enough to review the durability but they seem to be well made and I would definitely buy them again. Also, Revzilla is our favorite place for online shopping. We live in a rural area of Texas and do not have access to places to try on gear. Revzilla has great customer service and has been very gracious in allowing for multiple orders and returns until we found something that fits and works for us. Thank you Revzilla for your patience!
I am 5'1" and weigh 125lbs and the 42 fit well.

The most feminine textile pants out there
I am 5' 5 1/2" and 118 lbs. I was 120 when I started this process and purchased the 42's. They fit, but they were pretty snug and so I returned and tried a size 44. The 44's were way too big and I could pull them off without unbuttoning. So those went back and I looked for any other possible options. I kept coming back to the Drake's. So, I decided it would be worth it to try the 42's one more time and for good measure I dropped 2 pounds. The combination of the tiny weight loss and more likely, getting a size 42 that was cut just slightly bigger (no two garments are exactly alike) worked just perfectly and I love them. There are no hip pads or pockets for them which is a negative. the kneed pads cover your shins as well so that's a plus. I haven't tried them in the hot weather so not sure on the air flow. They will zip over touring boots just fine and also work well with the TCX Street Ace Waterproof Riding shoes.

Best So Far
I've been riding for 15 years... mostly in skinny jeans. I don't know why it's taken me so long to get around to protecting my lower half — maybe it's because it's so hard to find quality gear for women that actually fits — but I decided this is the year to do it. This is the best out of like 15 different pants I've tried on. For reference, I'm 5'6" 115lbs and usually wear a size 0/XS. I ordered a size 40. If they were available in a 38 I would have bought those, but I can make the 40 work with the adjustable velcro straps. In the colder months, my base layer will take up that extra room.

PROS
• High quality knee armor that's actually quite comfortable, and that you can remove to make the pants work when you get off the bike.
• They're quite comfortable, with some stretch in the fabric, and they're relatively form fitting (the least "techy out of all the textile pants I've tried on).
• No gap at the waist!!! (And adjustable velcro, just in case.)
• Relatively water resistant (sprinkling, you'll be fine; real rain, not so much).
• Relatively warm (I've worn these in 40º weather with a base layer, and was fine).

CONS
• The pocket for the knee armor goes all the way down to the ankle, so the knee armor slides down pretty far. I'm planning to sew in some velcro to hold it in place.
• I haven't worn these in really hot weather, but I can already tell that the ventilation isn't going to be amazing once it gets above 70º.

Great pants
I never write reviews. But, the previous reviews helped me make my decision so i thought I’d repay the favor. So, these pants are super super nice. They are so comfortable and pretty stylish. The only thing I wish the had done is put in hip protection. Yes, there is a slot so you can put some in. But, for the price i felt it should have been added. As for sizing, I wear a size 4-6 in pants i weigh 130 and I’m 5’5”. I have narrow hips but i have a booty and these fit great and they don’t show my crack when I’m riding. I ordered a size 44. I feel i could have gone a size down and been happy about the fit. But, i wanted to make sure i could wear something under if i wanted to.

I love them so far
I want to thank Revzilla for such clear information on the products they sell. These pants are everything that they said they would be. It makes for a lot less hassle in buying when you don't have to return several pairs if they don't fit or aren't what you expected. I love my Dainese pants so much I ordered the jacket to match. Thanks Revzilla!!

Tested for quality
Literally got these and took a spill on my bike the next day. The protection was great! Had no problems with the pads gigging into my shins. I wish they had hip protectors right about now since i have a nasty bruise on my hip, but thankful i had these to protect my skin. I do wish they weren’t low rise, but if you have a dainese jacket that connects that would solve that problem. Shipping from revzilla is excellent as well! I feel like these are true to size, I wear an 8, on the verge of a 6, but ordered a 10 for comfort and so I can wear them more as an over pant, and they are perfect with the adjustable waist.

Love these!
I ordered these as my first pair of riding pants. They fit like a glove, however they are very long. I'm about 5', so it's hard to find pants that fit length wise so no hard feelings there. They do have knee/shin protection that tends to shift around when walking, but these are for riding so that shouldn't be an issue. Pockets are deep and zippers are high quality.
The button hole on mine began to unravel, which is concerning. With the exception of that and the length, I love them.

Even smallest size is too large...
I am a petite rider, 5'3" ~102lbs and I purchased these in a size 40 which is the smallest size available. I can wear these over a pair of skinny jeans just fine and the waist still need to be adjusted with the side adjusters. The size chart does say 40 is about equivalent to an xs/2 so if you wear a 2 in jeans I think these should fit your waist just fine and the fit in the thigh and length of the pants are perfect for riding. My only other complaint is that the location of the knee armor is a little too low. I have a 30" inseam and I needed to sew the inner lining of the armor pocket about an inch up from the original seam to have the protection where I need it. The overall comfort and feel of the pants are amazing and I would highly recommend these as long as you check your specific measurements with the size chart.

I was looking for comfortable pants with protection. These pants fit well and got me through a week-long trip with no issues. They were great in mild weather. When it got really hot, they were a little sweaty in the seat. They could use more vents.

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..
Mosey L on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, the pockets open from the outside
Is that waterproof?
A C on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: no, but it is water resistant
Which jacket would match the 'weight' or 'bulk' of these pants more:

the Dainese Women's Air-Frame Textile Jacket
http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-womens-air-frame-textile-jacket

or

the Dainese Women's Alice Textile Jacket
http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/dainese-womens-alice-textile-jacket

?
Elle S on Aug 6, 2015
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?
Dave S on Aug 5, 2014
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?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
