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 optimize 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. Sanitized lining.

The Drake Air Pants is manufactured in the usually good Dainese quality. It provides good knee protection and fit. Air flows through small mesh openings on the leg, which can be closed - really good feature for touring. This is excellent for touring, but not sufficient for really hot days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sports design and safety matched with elevated comfort levels are the concepts at the heart of the new Portland 2 jacket developed for use in the warmer months thanks to the air inlets in Boomerang mesh and the built-in Shield Air G2 back protector, which together with the removable composite protectors ensures safety in case of fall. The ergonomic design is the result of construction in stretch Mugello fabric that guarantees a constantly tight fit and the possibility to fasten the jacket to the pants by zipper. The liner has been provided with silver ion treatment to keep hygiene levels constantly high. Protection From Shock Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard. Includes Shield Air G2 back protector certified to EN 1621.2/2003 Standard(Lev. 1). Abrasion And Tear Resistance Mugello fabric. Boomerang mesh inserts. Ergonomics Adjustment strap on neck. Wrist adjustement. Waist adjustment. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Temperature Regulation Nanofeel liner with Silver ion treatment. Air vents. External fabric with water resistance treatment. Other Features Reflective inserts. 2 outside pockets. Internal pocket. NOTE Dainese made a change in production the zippers / buttons as pictured are red anodized. However, when the jacket went into production it was produced with black zippers / button pulls, so the pictures / video are inaccurate in this respect.

Great jacket in all aspects - very nice design and fit. Good ventilation - worked well when touring in the current 90-100 degree temperatures at the east coast. Every detail is well made and high quality. Good protection, including back protector.
Yes, I recommend this product.
