Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimise the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanityzed lining.

After trying 3 different brands, I finally ponied up and bought Dainese. The fit and protection are A+. Not sure why other manufacturers have not figured out that a lot of folks don't want big, baggy pants when riding. The fit and cut of these pants is perfect, with great knee/shin protection. They don't flow as much air as I had hoped, but that should be expected with only one mesh flap in front and none in the rear of the pants.

Got this jacket earlier this week. Styling is great, no flashy logos or any other ridiculous things. I ride a Triumph Thruxton, and this jacket matches the bike very well. I usually wear a Large and this jacket fits me excellent in that size. Nice adjustability in the waist, cuffs, and sleeves. The removable liner definitely will help for early morning rides.The armor is on the lighter side and fits comfortably in the jacket.
All in all, I think it's a great jacket for the money.
