I was looking for a pair of kevlar-enhanced jeans with knee protectors. Bought the D1 and the optional protectors (expensive). Out of the box, one of the buttons on the fly came apart upon first opening. That was not a confidence inspiring event with regard to overall quality.
The style of the jeans is pretty slick, but the cut is awkward. The leg goes from semi-loose on the thigh to pretty snug from the knee downward. Also the inseam/seat is pretty snug. The knee section was too tight to accommodate a rider in a more aggressive, sporty position. What's worse, once I was able to insert the optional D1 armor into the dedicated pocket (inside) and affix them via the sown-in velcro receivers, getting in and out of these jeans was nearly impossible due to the extremely tight knees. No chance getting your leg over the bike, no chance of getting your feet up high and back on the pegs.
I think this product is really only suitable as a stand-alone, adding the knee armor makes it unusable. Definitely much more suited if you're riding a standard or a chopper with a more relaxed seating position.
I returned the product and am on the look-out for a better fitted, higher quality pair of riding jeans.
I'm 6'2'', 186 lbs and usually wear jeans size 33-34.
No, I do not recommend this product.
