I bought these pants to go with my Dainese Air Frame jacket. They actually fit pretty close to pant size although when zippered to my jacket, they do ride a bit higher which is why they tell you to measure around you belly button, not waist. I have not used them yet but they seem to match the description. Knee armor fits in the right place. Can be worn inside or outside a high top boot. Nice long zipper at the bottom. Nice heavy material but not too heavy. Large air vents above the knee. We'll have to see how they function in a Texas summer.
I ordered these because I have always like Dianese products. I like their fit and finish, and they have always been durable. So I took a chance on these and got my first surprise.
I was not sure what size to order, so I read a lot of reviews, and settled on ordering a size 52. I am 6 foot tall, and about 178 pounds, on the thin size. I wear Levis size 33/32, so I figured 52 would do it. Wrong.
I guess they would of been okay, but they were a little too big. A little big in the waist, and a little baggy in the legs. So I sent them back and ordered a 50. To my surprise they fit really well. I bought a Avro textile jacket recently size 54 so wearing a 50 pant surprised me.
I like the feel of them, can't really comment on the durability yet as I have not had them long. Not sure about the strange flap over the knee that you can open for ventilation. I don't see myself using them, but the protection features seem good without feeling too cumbersome. Certainly would not protect like leather. but a lot of times I just don't feel like putting the leathers on. I recommend this product
