Biking Jeans

Hi guys,

I'm after a pair of biking Jeans. Has anyone got any experience of what is actually good out there?

I have tried on Draggin, Hornee and BKS. Of those I prefered the look (and price) of the Hornee ones, but I have seen Draggin advertise saying their's are the only ones that really protect properly if you crash and slide.

Any thoughts or comments welcome. Cheers!

Hood jeans

Tried drag jeans few years ago, they were good but pricey.

I bought hood in the end, IMO they offer the best protection as jeans go. Why?

The original design uses a heavier duty kelvar material and completely covers the front & back of your legs down to the knees.

All the other only cover your bottom at the back & are made with lighter kelvar.

The lighter kelvar is however more supple & slightly more comfy.

Hood also make different style jeans with lighter kelvar.

They are made in the uk & very helpful over the phone

draggins

this website is good, but totally screwed! Its saying posts from 30 days ago are most recent??  And my post hasnt appear in 24 hrs!

 

Anyway:

 

I bought some draggins about a yr ago for over a hundred pounds, and now they are so full of little holes and what I would consider unreasonable wear and tear, that I have to go out and buy new biking trousers ASAP.  Couldnt recommend, I'm afriad!

Sartso

Sartso jeams are better than Draggin mate


basically they are kevlar lined so they are anti abrasive to the same standards as draggin

and the knee armour is better because it actually velcros into the pocket to help keep it still. 

Hein gericke now sell most of the styles of Sartso jeans mate, head down give them a try, you might be pleasently surprised

I have these.  They seem OK.  The knee armor is extra, at least here in the US.  But here in the US if you're a Harley rider like me you take a lot of guff for having them.

Riding jeans for Harley riders by definition are either Levi's or Wrangler.

If you want real protection only leather is acceptable.  Beware of assless chaps!:unsure:
