Dainese Drake Air Mens Motorcycle Pants More and more riders are wearing textile pants for everyday motorcycling duty. Textile looks more casual than its leather counterpart. In many ways, it is also more comfortable. Dainese's new Drake Air textile pants are a nice addition to the choices in this motorcycle apparel realm.

The Drake Air model has an impressive list of comfort and fitment features, but also a notable lack of hip and seat armor. The pants are constructed of a heavyweight 750 Cordura. They also feature both a perforated fabric and vents that can be opened and closed to suit various thermal needs. On the lower leg there are calf zippers, and the waist is adjustable.

Armor is of the composite variety and is located on the knee and shin area. Just like in the Alpinestars Rodeo jeans, there is no armor in the hip and seat. I view this as a shortcoming of both pairs. I know armor in those areas would make the textile pants more bulky, but also substantially more protective.

The Dainese New Drake Air Textile pants are available in European sizes 44-60. Riders report that the pants run on the short side, so consider that when ordering. I think that these pants are a good option for summer riding.
