I've heard good things about them but I have no experience with them.

My BF has probably 4-5 pairs, and loves them. They're pricey, but substantially more protection for day to day riding/commuting.

I almost bought some last weekend but with shipping they ended up being out of my price range.

As far as I know they are better than the Icon jeans (at least the women's ones) because the Draggin Jeans have more kevlar. The Icon ones aren't reinforced on the butt so if you low side you won't be happy. Draggin Jeans however are reinforced in the knees, hips and butt. On the website they show you their test which was draggin a guy on the ground at like 40 miles per hour, afterwards the jeans were torn but the kevlar and his skin were still intact.

I'll get some eventually.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

No problem. Personally, I don't think the Icon pants are as good as people think they are since they are not as reinforced much at all. Draggin Jeans are definately the way to go.

Thanks for the input guys. Now where's the best place to get them or are they pretty much the same price everywhere you look?

I don't know that many places sell them, at least there's only one place in Az that does and I couldn't get there so I don't know how their prices are.

If you order from the company the prices vary but the shipping is at least 25 dollars. Just something to keep in mind when comparing prices.

These are not substitutes for leather!!

I know a guy, that will remain nameless, that wrecked the bike and had a pair of the JR pants over a set of carhartt jeans (which are thicker than normal jeans) and still got bad rash on his arse!

Oh very true.... but most of us won't mess with full leathers (even if we know we should) for the daily quick ride into work... so SOME protection is better than none.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

You just have this way with words!!

Actually, the fit isnt bad, you can wear them and actually look like a girl!! Thats one of the biggest pluses in their favor for me on the looks, and they are substantially thicker than regular jeans. They come up a lil higher (but not really high, just not low rise) than what I prefer but since they are protecting me I can deal! The only thing to remember is, if you wear say a 5 in regular pants, you need a 7 in the ICON pants, jeans or leather to fit over the hip area. If you are anorexic, maybe you can get away with the regular size, but for a woman with curves, 2 sizes up. (2 sizes cuz they only come in those increments, 3,5,7,9 etc...)
