Great looking pants that fit well and are well made but aren't great with boots
They are great looking pants, no question. They are also incredibly well made and look very protective.

I have one major issue with them and one minor. The major issue is that I clearly have larger calves then most. I own a pair of TCX X-Cube boots and I cannot get the zipper to close over these boots. The pants also don't fit in the boots.

So as a result, I ride with these slightly open. Which means it's it's raining, the water gets in from the top of the boot since the pants don't close around them. I can't even predict which boot would work best with these pants.

The minor issue is that if you wear these with just underwear, the lining will rub your knees and it will chaff them. I did a 6hr ride with these pants and I came back with some pretty raw skin on the knees. You can fix that by wearing some lycra tights or something similar.

But other then those two issues, these really are fantastic pants. They also work better with people who have thin calves as compared to larger calves. Mine are quite large thus why I think I have issues with my boots.

Pony C2 pants are very good
Aside from the small annoying thing of the right knee pad wanting to grab my knee hair a little when my knees are bent, this is a great, super protective leather pant. It breathes well for a leather pant as I've ridden in 85 degree weather without any issue when wearing boxers underneath and in 60 degrees with a pair of slacks or jeans underneath. I think with some thermal underwear I could do upper 40 degrees comfortably.

A Change for the Worse
The originals were my "go-to" sport touring pants last year but I wanted the latest C2 version so sold them and bought these. In my opinion the C2 might meet tougher EU specs but they no longer work for me for a few reasons.

They are listed as having the suit to boot system but potential purchasers should be aware that they do not have this system. They have an expansion zipper in the calf but that's it. There is no Velcro on the inside of the shin which the matching Velcro on the "in" boots should marry-up with. This means the Velcro on your "in" boots will rub and destroy the liner in the pants in no time. It also means there is a risk of the pants slipping up your leg either as you ride or in the event of an accident. This was my experience of the previous model before I added a Velcro patch on the inside myself.

Whilst the old design didn't have this system either it did have a fall back in the elasticated calf. The entire calf and hem was elastic so you could cinch down the second expansion zipper right to the ankle which would really lock the pants in place. The new design has a fixed hem which doesn't stretch so your expansion is either closed for over the pants type of boots or open. I find in the open position it isn't tight enough and looks hideous (very wide looking calf then narrow ankle). The shin armor is so long it now sits on top of the shin armor in the boots so it is even more unsightly and uncomfortable. This really should be a modular system so the pants armor meets the top of the boot armor in any combination of Dainese pants and boots. I would imagine "out" type boots would have the same issue with overlapping hard armor.

I really wish they had kept the aspects of the previous design which made it work so well with their in boots as in other respects they are good pants. However, as a confirmed "under the suit" boot fan these are a step backwards. Plus they are missing aspects of the system they claim to have.

The fit and comfort is very good with good usable features
Brought the Dainese pants on there reputation and the features of the pony C2 Perforated and have not been disappointed .I am a sports bike rider with a few track days so comfort is very important .I have found them very good not a tight fit plenty of movement if you are on the track some pants can interfere restrict movement not these pants .The air flow is also notable over non perforated pants as I live in western Australia cooling is important. As for Features the removable knee/shin armour is very good it gives you options to change them to suit your type of riding

Great Commuter Or Weekend Warrior Pants
I have always been a big fan of dainese products and feel you truly get what you pay for, ultimately I was torn between these and the aliens and decided to go with the Pony because of perforation. Living in arizona if i want more than 3 months out of my leathers this is a must, the airflow itself is nothing phenomenal but does do a pretty decent job up to around 85 or 90, possibly higher. The pants themselves are sized pretty dead on but will not work to well with certain jackets and a racing tuck due to them riding a little low. However combined with a seperate dainese jacket (a super speed c2 in my case) you have a flawlessly fitting suit I wouldn't mind throwing around on the track or the freeway for a simple commute. My only complaint of the pants which is also a bit of a positive, is the knee protection. I can't fit them under my current boots due to the way dainese goes down the shin, but outside the pants with expansion zipper undone they fit wonderfully! Overall definitely a recommended product!

Intro to Dainese pants - love them
These pants are great. I measured myself according to Revzilla's sizing instruction, ordered the size that fit the measurements, and crossed my fingers that I would get it right the first time - and the right size arrived. The first couple of rides took a little bit of breaking in, as most leather does from my experience. After about 50-100 miles they fit like a glove.

A couple of notes:
Yes, these are perforated - but they are leather. Wore on some 80 degree humid days in NYC. While at speed they're great - stopped a different story; but not unbearable. You will most likely sweat.

Perhaps it's my inseam compared to height, but these pants are slightly short in the hem especially in the seated position. With boots they're fine, but just something to be aware of.

Great fit, very comfortable
I purchased these pants shortly after I a Dainese jacket having been so impressed with the jacket, I haven't had any leathers before so this is my first go round with both a leather jacket and pants as well. I haven't had either very long, but have managed a few rides in fairly different conditions. The first was at around 30 degrees F, which was surprisingly comfortable. I was never cold even with the perforations in the pants. I felt air flow but it was not cold extremely cold air. It was cool but I stayed comfortable. The second was slightly higher temperature at about 60 degrees. It was also very comfortable. Still felt a little airflow, but never got hot. It was just pleasant. The pants fit very well. I usually wear a 30-34 jean so I decided on the 48's. The fit very well. The legs feel a bit short to me, but im kind of long legged and skinny so i didn't expect it to be perfect. A pair of ankle boots should take care of that, The padding is nice, feels solid where you want it. Knees and shins are well covered. The only negatives I can come up with are the shortish legs and the pockets. The pockets are basically useless. Don't expect to get much more than a single key or a credit card in there. Fortunately my jacket has enough room for anything I might carry. I do like that these pants zip to my current jacket. I like the idea of the added protection in a crash. The only other thought I have is the initial break in. When I got on my bike for the first couple goes, it was fairly difficult to bend my legs up far enough to get to the foot pegs. This has gotten better with a few rides, but on my 06 Yamaha R-6 it was a bit of an effort at first. Overall I'm glad I picked these up and would certainly recommend them to a friend.

Quality Leather Pants
I received these pants a few weeks ago and am very impressed with the quality. I have a Dianese Zen Perforated Leather jacket and jumped on these seeing that they were perforated and didn't have knee sliders. I use these pants for Sport Touring so I didn't need the sliders. I normally wear a 32W 30L jean pant, but as Revzilla advised I took measurements and bought the size 52 pants. The fit was perfect for me, very nice around the waist and seat, and snug in the calves. The pants are definitly made for wearing inside boots. I've worn the pants riding once so they are still not fully broken in, but they are very comfortable already. Dianese gear in my opinion is top shelf gear and you feel very protected. Airflow seems to be good, but I'm sure when it's 90 plus I will be warm. I'm willing to sweat a little to be safe when i'm riding. Overall the pants are terrific, no complaints.

Read up if you got muscular legs!!!
I have been anticipating my first pair of riding leathers as I attain my collection of gear. I am new to motorcycles and really don't know anyone who rides let alone knows gear. Thanks to Revzilla and Anthony for this awesome website and friendly staff. Hit the gong twice for Anthony and the many Geekz who I have talked to over the phone.

I have read high and low for reviews as I have large thighs compared to the rest of the chicken legged population. I workout near daily and my legs are a strong point. I'm no Kevin Levrone but I have been bodybuilding for 20 years. I am 6'1" and weigh about 220-225lbs, depending on how hungry I am in the past month. I typically wear size 36x34 to 34x32 jeans depending on cut and brand; Kalvin Klein, Polo...etc. My problem in jeans is that when the waist fits the legs are too tight and if the legs fit the waist is huge. That's what I get for trying to stay in shape.

Most reviews seem to say that 52-54 European are equivalent to 32-36 waist. These same reviews mention how tight the legs feel as well. Putting two and two together, chicken legged population and most people do not workout theirs legs even those who hit the gym, I figured go large or go home. I ordered a 56.

I received my pants today. First impression, these things are tanks and will be a workout for any hanger they ever hang from. I went to put them on and realized these aren't your regular pants. I had to sit down and stretch a little to get my feet to even get into the leg openings. I swear I cramped up a little in my hips. This was reminiscent of an episode of Friends where Ross was trying to hold onto his youth buying a pair of leather pants which shrank and he could not get them back on during a bathroom break during a date. I finally got them on.

My second impression once having them completely on and standing upright were that these were tight. They were tight around the thighs, perfect around the waist (again 34-36 in jeans) and perfect around the calves/shins. I pumped my legs back and forth to get them more situated around the thighs. I tried squatting in them like in the tucked position; plumbers butt. They definitely need some breaking in and I feel confident they will once I wear them a bit as other Dainese leather products I have, gloves and jackets, have broken in well after a few rides.

The pants fit perfect over my Dainese Axial Pros. I unzipped the second zipper giving more room in the calf and they fit perfect both girth and length. The two looked sweet paired together. I bet any "in boot" would do the same. Perhaps the "out boot" would work well with the girth adjustment zipped all zipped up. Further more, I zipped the 360 waist zipper paired with a Dainese Airframe mesh jacket. Yes they did line up and zipped perfectly although different styles of protection fabric.

I couldn't wait so I jumped on my Honda CBR 250r. Yes I'm 6'1" 225lbs and ride a 250. It's my first bike guys and it kicks butt. No it's not too small! Perfect for me now until I learn the art of riding and step up to 600, if I ever do.

Getting my leg over the bike was a scene and once I got on the bike I could tell this ride would be a back road slow ride. It was like driving your friends car; similar feel but just different. What I mean was the fact these need breaking in and just bending my leg to get on the pegs had a learning curve. Going into the tuck was challenging; plumbers butt. I tried to pull over and let cars pass so no one seen my cool gear with my red underwear hanging out. I could see the pants breaking in and this being less an issue in the future.

Riding for about an hour they did become more forgiving and I felt they were breaking in already. It was about 85-90 degrees out and these weren't too hot. The perforation didn't breathe too much but not once did I think my legs were hot. Slowly I was able to get more and more into a tuck and felt more confident with the pants. Again, I believe they will continue to break in with each ride. My thick thighs were somewhat strangled at first but when hopping off the bike they felt like the pants were only hugging my legs. The seat needs some more break in time for sure.

The protection felt above and beyond. I felt well protected and felt kind of bullet proof yet never want to find out, of course. Where the Axial Pros left off, the pants' shin protection started perfectly and the knees were held right in place. The hip protection was not limiting my flexibility yet could gladly be more beefy as I never refuse greater protection. You won't be disappointed with the level of security compared to anything I've ever seen.

Once home from my ride I decided I was pleased with my purchase and would recomend this to anyone wanting something with leather and no sliders. Squatting a few times after the 1st ride they already were fitting better and I anticipate they will continue to contour to my svelt hind quarters. Now getting them off was the final laugh. Again, think Ross from Friends. I got them off but this was almost a two man job.

Thanks Revzilla for the chance to help others with my review who might share the same burden of diesel legs!

Glovely
I took a shot to the toe over labor day weekend from a piece of plate steel thrown up by a SUV in front of me, so after a month of foot immobilization I decided it was time to buy some boots...and maybe some pants. My previous southern hemisphere armor consisted of leather boots, Blundstones, and Levis with Icon Field Armor knee pads underneath. I am always a little leery of buying pants or shoes online unless, like aforementioned Levis, I know the style and measurements, so I went to a local store here in San Diego to check out boots and when I casually mentioned I may also be looking for some pants the sales guy asked leather or textile, and when I said leather in a 35" waist he brought me these in a 56.

It took me a second to figure out how to get into them, and then a confused moment trying to wrap them outside the boots(Sidi Cobra), but once we got that figured out I could not believe how well they fit. I am 6'2", 230, not an easy frame to fit, but these things fit like a glove, and with a enough room left at the waist that I didn't feel the need to suck anything in. In fact, the only thing I might complain about here, viz. the flimsy single snap belt fastener, didn't even come into play.

I read all the reviews here before writing mine and there seem to be common themes with calf size and pinching at the knee. Let's address calf size first. One of the complications I face when buying pants is that my left calf is 1 inch greater in circumference than my right as the result of a shattered ankle a few years ago, my left calf is 17.5" and the right is 16.5". This bit of bad luck actually provides a good basis for comparison here because I can give you a pretty good idea of how much difference an inch makes. On the left leg the pants fit snugly over the boot with only a little extra effort required to help pull the hem together to close the zipper, and on the right it pretty much zips right down with minimal resistance almost as if it were designed for my legs. I did note that most of the reviews that mentioned calves included the caveat that the know they have canned hams for calves, but given the repeat reviews including this complaint I have to think some people are in calf denial.

As for pinching, these comments seemed to come from people riding sportier bikes and, while this is my first pair of leathers, it seems some amount of pinching in that kind of riding position would be natural, at least for a little while. I ride an O4 Ducati Multi and with the relaxed riding position I never felt a thing. Along those lines I felt it very easy, on the first wear, to swing my leg not over just the bike, but Givi luggage mounted to the tail. The other thing I liked was the padding on the inside of the knees that made it feel effortless to grip the tank and practically steer by knee.

As for the perforation or air flow, I was riding in south San Diego county today and it was pretty hot but the conclusion I came to was that it was the liner in the jacket that was keeping me hot, not the pants. And for anyone wondering why I had the liner in, it's because when I hit the higher elevations of Mt. Laguna, Julian, etc. it can sometimes be a little cool, especially late on a Sunday afternoon riding in the shade...

Anyway, still a new purchase so we'll see what else comes up but for right now I feel just like the kid of who got a brand new bike for his birthday.

These pants are very comfortable, protective, and look a lot more like regular pants without an excessive amount of logos or colors drawing attention. I really did not want to look like I am in a track suit while still wearing something solid that matches the rest of my outfit.

have the same pants non perforated. a little disappointed w amount of perforation on these (very little), the two are almost identical. understand safety issue (tear strength) but was hoping for something cooler in leather on hot summer rides

I wanted a leather pant with excellent protection. As well, based on reviews, the fit runs slightly large and the ventilation is good. We will see on those items. I am 6 foot 1 inch and weigh around 240 and ordered a size 60. I am hopeful on waist. Guess I need to cut back on the skittles

Dainese generally makes the best motorcycle products.

Wanted leather street pants that were perforated
C G on May 11, 2014
I needed a good touring pant and this appears to be exactly what I need. No race sliders, perforated for hot weather use, and a great fit.

I wanted a street oriented leather pant to go with my Laguna Evo jacket. The new Pony C2's made for a good combination. It has solid protection and the quality you would expect from Dianese.

I chose these for street riding because I wanted protection and comfort and the perforation for hotter times of the year. I liked the style and the adjustable waist.

Good reviews, good looks, and I want a pair of leather pants for when I ride through the city
Elizabeth J on May 7, 2016
Took a couple tries to get the size right. First two tries they were too small. Great pants though. very protective.

How do these compare to the Dianese Alien pants? I know these are perforated and the Aliens are not, and I'm thinking of these to use instead of the Aliens for warm weather riding. So, I'm interested to know if these are similar to the Aliens, and if not, how they differ (other than perforation)?

BEST ANSWER: My weather here is 90+F all year round.
I like the protection the Aliens afford, but they are hot.
If you're riding a bike that gives you airflow, the fabric part will ventilate well.
The leather part gets very hot in the sun.

I still wear them...
I usually wear a size 50 in Dainese textile pants (eg. Yamato). Would it be the same size in leather ones, and particularly Pony C2?
Ilias C on May 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I own a pair of Dainese textile pants in a 52--don't recall the model--and the Ponys in a 52 and yes, the sizing is very similar. Note that unlike the textile pants, after some usage the leather pants will loosen about 1 size, eg, from a 52 to a 53. So don't panic if the leather pants are a little tight at first.
Would these fit comfortably inside "Dainese TR-Course Out Air Boots" ? It seems from the review video its best to wear them with "In" boots.
Sherif A on Oct 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've tried them with both boots. The Course In boots have Velcro on them that will Frey the inside of the Pony C2's, so do get the Course In bots. I wear the Pony C2's tucked into the Course out boots. It is a little tight when you zip up the boots, but works fine for me. Hope this helps.
Will these pants fit over boots?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, I wear Sidi touring boots and they will not fit under the pants. The pants fit snug at the lower leg.
Question on what size to get. I wear a 34/30 in jeans and debating if the size 52 will be too small? Thanks in advance!
Patrick H on Aug 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear 35/36wait 32inseam and im in the 54 that are a snug fit. 54 may fit like normal pants on you but too loose for leathers which should be form fitting as theyll stretch a bit after break in. So I think 52 is right size since you dont want it loose in thighs. If youre on the tighter end of 34s already bordering 35 then go with 54.
Anthony says this isn't intended for the track, but wouldn't this be a fine pant for beginner group at a track day? It certainly meets trackday requirements it seems.
A shopper on Apr 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The pants seem to have some style elements and no sliders. A true track pants can take some low siders and you go back on the bike in them. Those probably will protect you but they won't look as good after you went down…..
How is the airflow on these pants? Will they be a good choice for summer heat?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wore them on a 3 hour blast last week along the highway into Vegas. They were fine, but i was on-bike the whole time. If you get off in 90+ degrees, you will be comfortable in shorts, not pants of any kind. On my rented harley cruiser, there wasn't much air flow from the position of the perforations.
will this zip to an alpine star jacket?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will not zip to a Jaws jacket, which is what I tried. I got the Laguna Evo instead of the Jaws and I'm happy about my decision.
