I wear Draggin' Jeans "Utility Jeans" most everytime I ride. I also purchased and use the CE-approved knee/shinn armor as well.

I like them but haven't crash tested them and hope I never get a chance to.

I find it really funny

Maybe you should take a look at this video of someone testing them out:

sadly many companies put only a few strands of "kevlar" in the products just so they can put that familiar label as part of a selling point. I think DragginJeans uses several materials including but not limited to "kevlar" to make the jeans more durable in a slide. Same thing with gloves, helmets, jackets, ect. For example, a helmet claims to be made of/with "kevlar", literally they only put in a couple small strips so they can slap a label on it. Sad but true
