Draggin Biker jeans £169.99
Time tested: 30,000 miles/2.5 years
What’s good? Few things seem to divide opinion more than riding in Kevlar jeans. Personally, I love riding in them. I know from independent research that these particular jeans last over four seconds in SATRA abrasion tests and that the material used in their construction is identical to that used in Draggin’s Level 1 certified jeans. That’s as good as many leather and textile jeans. I also love the fact that they’re all-day comfortable, keep you remarkably warm on chilly evenings, yet allow the breeze through on hot days, and look like normal casual jeans.
What’s not? There’s only one length, and with my stumpy pins (30in inside leg) that means I tread through the hems until they wear away.
