Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants - knee pad questions

1. How do you like them
2. Are they good in the summer?
3. Are the knee pads removable from the outside ?
I'd like to be able to pull them out without dropping my pants.
From the looks of the mesh panels at the knees it looks like there is an exterior zipper that might be for removing the pads.

If so - can you attach a photo of how they are removed?
I'd like to see this before pulling the trigger and buying these.

I had a pair in hand briefly but sent them back because I was about to move to the sf bay (so, cool weather all the time)

I thought they fit great and liked the armor. they're snug, though, no way in hell you'll pull the armor without taking them off, and they won't really look like jeans or anything. they ar clearly moto pants.

So the pads only removed from the inside of the pant?
Not accessible from an exterior pocket ?

right, unless they've changed. if they have, I'm certain it would be in one of the product videos.

I have them and they are my favorite pants down here in South Louisiana.

They fit snug and are not baggy like most pants.

They vent well with the fold up panels in front thighs. And after spraying them with Aero 303 they can withstand a moderate shower( just have to remember to close the vents!)

Substantial knee armor. A good buy!

They also fit over Aeorostich Combat Tours and Daytonas. No liner which I like and can wear a thin merino wool base layer for cooler weather.

I'm getting conflicting answers. Some are saying yes and some are saying no.

The following responses on revzilla said you could.
