Product review: Draggin Rebel Kevlar Jeans
Web Producer, Liam Marsden has spent four months testing Draggin’s Rebel Kevlar jeans, covering 1000 miles. Here’s how he’s been finding them.
These are the best riding jeans I’ve worn to date. They’re made from a super-soft stretch denim, which means they don’t ride up or bunch up on the bike. There’s no irritation anywhere from these jeans and they’re great to wear all day. They don’t follow the current trend for slim-fitting jeans, so I’ve had no trouble fitting them over boots.
Knee and hip armour is optional, and although I have a set of the kneepads, they don’t fit very well in their pockets. The pockets are also too tight – limiting movement and they’re halfway down my shins once in. As with most riding jeans that offer a decent level of protection, things can get a little sweaty when the temperature rises, especially in the areas covered by the protective Kevlar lining. The price is also steep.
