Protective Jeans

Quite simply, who makes the best protective jeans? Are they comparable in protection to "real" riding pants? I'm looking for something that will protect me on short daily rides.

Any experiences appreciated!

Well Jeans are jeans. Icon makes a thicker denim material that won't rip very easily if you went sliding. What you can do is put some armor under your jeans for the extra protection.

The Alter-Ego pants by joe rocket is great pants. They have very tough material and approved CE Knee Armor.

Every day there are more riding jeans options out there. My personal favorite are Cortech's Mod jeans. Better than Levi's, and they look exactly the same. Nothing can touch armored leather though. Your absolute best bet when you meet the pavement is to have some other animal's hide hit first.

But Dragg'n jeans work and can be easily found in this area.

i've got the Sliders brand moto jeans and am very happy with them.

my next pair will probably be the Draggin brand with the armor.

but as stated above, leather is the best.

I've got a pair of Cortech jeans that have leather sewn into the front lower legs and the rear back side area, along with some knee armor. Not as good as full leathers but for riding to work or to the post office they can't be beat, much better than standard jeans.
