Dainese Galvestone D2 Gore-Tex Jeans - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great service and really well made and warm trouse
As usual with Dainese, the quality of the garment is of very high standard. The trousers are warm and dont buffer in the wind when riding. I wore them for a ride in 3c and they were very warm. The removable thermal inserts allow you to remove when the temp increases. Top product and great service as usual from Sportbikeshop!
Well worth it!
Excellent top quality trousers, I live in the Lake District so nice, cold and wet to test the trousers. Sizing for me was spot on. Worn in rain-bone dry. Worn in very cold weather-toasty warm. No sweaty legs when worn, and keeps your legs regulated nicely, not too hot, but just right thanks to the Gore-tex. Easy to get on and off, simple zips at bottom, could maybe do with a press stud or velcro fastener to secure around boot a little better. Same with the waist, could do with extra securing or braces maybe. Tried other cheaper brands but they say you get what you pay for. I've used RST, Richa, Oxford and others but I will now use Dainese as my go to brand. Very pleased.
Not What I Wanted to Write.
These jeans are very warm, I rode in temps around 7 degrees with these without base layers and wasn't cold. The thermal layer is very good and removable. Other reviews state that they were hard to get over boots, I'd say they're SLIGHTLY inconvenient but not hard at all. Protection-wise these jeans done me a solid, I only had these for 2 weeks and managed to low-side on a diesel spill at a roundabout, not damage to my knees however I was going at a low speed. The reason I gave a 4/5 is because there are no hip pads for these jeans, that would have made these top tier!
Does as it says. Main reason for buying is the knee and shin protection. Was a must after my last accident when I damaged and cut all my shin. Family requested next pair to have it. Comfortable fit, better fit than my old trousers around the hip and groin allows for more flexibility. I have slightly little legs so have to move the protection when standing but when on the bike it is in the correct place.
Fashion over Function
Great trouser but the thermal lining is too short, as soon as you put your feet up onto the foot pegs the inner lining rides up over your boot and you get a draft. I have fitted an old lining in from an old pair that's longer. .
Great quality pair of trousers and fitted well. The knee/shin armour is the best I've seen but I ended up returning them because the leg armour didn't really work with my Sidi couriers and needed to be worn inside which isn't great in the rain! Probably ideal with a short boot or one without shin protection.
A complete bargain
Size guide spot on for me. Great quality, solid and secure feeling knee/shin armour sits in perfect place. Zip securely to Carve Master 2 jacket although zip was slightly stiff to begin with. But for a Goretex jean from a top brand they are just brilliant value - when i bought they were a clear £80 or so cheaper than any other Goretex pants available. Why wouldn't you buy them?!?
Good piece of kit
These trousers are as usual for Dainese excellent quality and fit superbly. They have a removable thermal liner which works very well. My only minor niggle is that that leg zips aren't very long and have only managed to put my boots on after putting on the trousers. Service again excellent from the guys.
Good quality comfortable trousers with Gore-Tex, bought them based on the RIDE magazine review and recommendation. True to size took a large for a 34 waist and they fit perfectly. Knee and shin armour gives good coverage although could be improved with the addition of some good hip armour or pockets for it to be added. Yet to try them in a downpour.
