I have them and they are great. The only bad thing I have to say about them is I don't like the zipper - it seems to wander open every now and again. The button on the front above the zipper has a cheap feel to it as well. But as far as fit, function, etc. they are great - I am going to buy a blue pair as I have a black pair now. I am also going to try the Draggin Jeans - I almost bought a pair at Mid-Ohio last year but I decided not to because I didn't want to spend the money at the time.. Definately a good idea to buy something like this for around town, etc. instead of regular jeans which will shred like a piece of paper.. Especially since wearing leather riding pants is not feasible 100% of the time.. I bought my Icons @ Ride Gear for a decent price.. Hope this helps..

I own a pair of Recons and a pair of Barriers. The Recons have extra vents and they are the only ones I've worn so far as I got the Barriers a few months ago. Picked up the Barriers from Speedwerks for an awesome price.

I can't attest to their durablity in a crash, but the jeans are comfortable and 'normal' enough to wear around in public. They are going to be perfect for my around town jaunts.

Jodi from SBR just ordered a pair. I'll let you know how she likes them. I have a pair of the recon pants and love them. Nice thick denim with Kevlar reinforced knees. I have a set of their field armor on the way. Looking forward to checking them out. Also I'm interested in their new Athem Pants and would like to get a pair or two.

I haven't seen anything from Icon that I didn't like.

You aren't going to sing the national anthem every time before you go riding are you? Bad joke.. So are those new version of the Recons or something?

....that our flag was still there...... :pat:

very bad joke !!! got the jeans today and they run small very small.
if any one buys a pair go 4 sizes up for the recon pants and 2 too 4
on the anthem jeans . they are 100% cotton and will shink if you wash them.
overall they look cool but very stiff and the inseam are long . i have a 34 inseam and they where still past my feet. will have to hem up . so have too
wait some more for new sizes for now.

Well I wore the Barriers on the bike last week and they were awesome. Quite comfortable, warm, and I think the thickness would keep some of the roadrash down if I had to test them out. The fleece lining on the inside is so soft too!
