    Dainese New Drake Air pants, size 56, brand new with tags, for sale.

    Just got the best looking, most comfortable motorcycle pants....and they are too tight for me. They are Dainese size 56, which is around 36-38 (I'm more 38-40).

    Before I return them, I'm going to offer you guys the same deal - $200 plus shipping (MSRP is $259.95).

    Or....if you have brand new size 58 I'll trade with you. These pants are amazing. new-drake-air-tex.jpg 20200512_102924-01.jpg 20200512_102948-01.jpg 20200512_103104.jpg 20200512_103118.jpg 20200512_102836.jpg 20200512_102802.jpg

    How’s the length on these? According to the sizing chart they should fit me fine at 6’2”.

    But I see the make a tall version as well. Thoughts?

    I'm 6'3" and they were fine lengthwise. Mind you, these are kinda slim-fit pants so they are definitely not long, since they are fairly tight to the rider's leg.

    Not baggy at all, not overly long (that would defeat the purpose of being slim) but stretchy. They fit me fine when it comes to legs (tight, comfy, stretchy) but my hips and beer-belly makes them just a bit too tight.

    Hope that helps. If you google them and go to images there are a few photos of riders actually wearing them...

    Thanks for the info, sounds like they will fit me well. Can you get a shipping quote to 21224?

    Sure thing. But the earliest I can get to the post office is tomorrow afternoon, if that works for you.
    Do you prefer USPS, UPS,...? The package is not that heavy. It shouldn't be that much, I'm in central Virginia.

    Just trying to figure out if it’s worth buying yours vs buying a new pair for $259, but with free shipping.

    I understand. Please keep in mind these are brand spanking new, I received them yesterday, tried them once in my room, and packed them back into the same box I've received them in.

    Did not wear them at all, not even around the house. Just too damn tight for me. I'll get a size 58 just as soon as I find a pair.

    The shipping to you is $15. I can sell them for $210 shipped to you.
    That way you would save $50 for a brand new Dainese New Drake pants...

    These pants are still available, brand new and about $50 less than the store.

    They truly are phenomenal riding pants.

    If they are a size larger, I would never sell them.

    I'll wait for another day or so and, if no interest, send them back to the store.

    Just trying to pass a good deal to somebody...

    I gave it some thought over the weekend and unfortunately I just can't justify such a large expenditure at the moment. I was hoping to buy them for a trip we are doing this weekend, but need to be very cautious with money for now. Thanks again.

    Understand completely. They are not cheap....But in my opinion, one of the best riding pants on the market.

    Pants are still available!... At least for a short while.
