I'm 6'1"/204 lbs with a 33ish waist. I decided to go with size 34, and found the fitment was bit large in the waist/seat/legs although the extra room works when you are in the seated position on the bike. Decided to wash & dry the jeans to see if I could get them to shrink but didn't notice any substantial change in size after the washing. Length is almost too long when off the bike, but these are riding jeans so I found the length to be perfect when seated, avoiding the high-water look #as a side note, it would be extremely easy to have the pants hemmed if needed#.
Had the chance to test the pants on a 200 mile loop in humid 95 degree weather and was pleasantly surprised at how much air the pants flowed while at speed- as suspected, the pants are a bit hot when off the bike but not so bad that it would keep me from recommending the product. The quality and craftsmanship of the pant is top-notch and it goes without saying the CE rating is a main selling feature.
As far as style is concerned, the company could rethink the emroidered logos on the pockets, and offer the pant in a solid color without the funky dye job on the front of the legs, but overall the Draykos get a big thumbs up from me and I have to admit I am VERY picky about my riding gear.

I was looking for a shorty boot that was comfortable to walk in but didn't sacrifice protection and I found it in the SMX-2. I have purchased and used many other manufacturer's products but always opt for A-Star beecause I know I'm getting a quality product that will not break the bank (although a bit disapointed with the "made in China" tag).
Sizing: I typically wear a 46 euro (12 US) for all riding/racing boots but the size 46 felt a little large (wide width and a large toe box) so I called Revzilla to get some input. It was suggested I order one size down so I did- good advice since I am much happier with the fit. As always Revzilla honored its return policy and within days my account was credited!!!
Revzilla Rocks!!! I don't shop anywhere else!
Yes, I recommend this product.
