I have worn these pants twice (250miles) so this is the review I can offer..
I wear a 33 in Jeans so i ordered the 50..too tight..swapped them for 52..they fit well..i am 6'2 athletic build and was looking for something which was quite fitted so I would be comfortable wearing them around town with some sneakers..this they are
First time i wore them, within a matter of minutes as I was pulling up to a traffic light with my gf on the back of my boxer as i put my foot down the bottom of the pants got stuck on the boxer engine and for a second i couldn't put my right foot down and the weight of the bike started tipping to the right...yes..gf + bike + luggage..it was about to tip over on the street because the Dainese pants are not designed for tall people..
Aside from that they are comfortable, i put a pair of thermal underwear on underneath one brisk morning and that sufficed, on the ride home that day when it was warmer i opened the knee air vents...hmm not sure if my GSA tank stops the air from hitting my their but did not feel much..didn't get too hot so i'll just have to see as it gets warmer here in Socal.
The padding feels good all around and they zip into my Dainese Air Frame jacket, which does kind of make me feel like i am wearing clothes i have outgrown as they get tightened together..
If Dainese catered for taller gents and ladies then they would rate excellent until then..you pay a premium and you get something very nice

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket The Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket opens up hot weather riding to those who still want to stay protected without suffering in a leather sweatbox. The Boomerang and Quick Dry chassis holds large mesh panels that keep air moving through the jacket while also providing abrasion resistance. Removable composite elbow and shoulder protectors boost the jackets level of safety by increase both impact and abrasion resistance in key areas. A pocket for a G1 or G2 back protector allows you to add CE level 1 or 2 back protection for a complete protection package and an included wind-breaker liner turns off the airflow if the temperature dips. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for Dainese Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket Note: Black/High Rise colorway does not have white fabric at bicep area.

If your athletic build, you will LOVE this jacket. The cut feels GREAT, air flow GREAT, protection GREAT. I wear Size 50 ( im 6'2 170) Plus I can fit thin sweater underneath on cooler evenings..
Yes, I recommend this product.
