Dubinky. Enduro and Adventure Riding Apparel
DUBINKY, Adventure Apparel
After a lot of work I have finally launched Dubinky, a motorcycle apparel company focusing on enduro/trail riding and dual-sport/adventure riding.
Based out of Colorado and taking its namesake from the legendary Dubinky Wells area outside Moab Utah, the goal of Dubinky was to make apparel that meets a larger range of riding conditions from the mountain single tracks and the Continental Divide Trail in the Rockies to the Kokopelli Trail, slot canyons, desert and sand dunes of Utah. To meet this need is the first line of clothing featured by Dubinky, the Colorado Pant and Jersey.http://i816.photobucket.com/albums/z...d/IMG_0475.jpg
The Colorado Pant is the culmination of a lot of work and reiterations with the ultimate goal to offer riders a true “do it all” pant, that works in many different climates and can adapt to any type of riding.
-The Colorado Pant is a true 4 seasons riding pant and can be used just as easily in the winter as the summer. This is accomplished by using a shell constructed completely of 100% nylon, which makes the pant virtually wind proof for winter riding.
-For summer riding the pant has four large front and rear vents that flow massive amounts of air and are positioned to offer maximum cooling to the core of the body. The use of equally sized intake and exhaust vents maximize the air flowing over the body which equates to more perspiration being evaporated and a cooler riding pant.http://i816.photobucket.com/albums/z...ntopenvent.jpg
-The Colorado Pant not only functions in a wide range of conditions, but the full nylon shell offers unsurpassed rider protection and durability whether on the street or trail. The entire lower leg is constructed of heavy weight 1680 denier nylon, which offers amazing durability from cuts and tears on rocks and trail debris, but also superb protection while riding on the road. The upper shell is constructed of 840d nylon, which is lighter to provided rider comfort and freedom of movement, but is still durable and offers good protection.
-A lot went into getting the fit just right on the Colorado pant and it features formed knees that are designed to easily accommodate knee pads or braces. The waist of the pant was designed to fit a natural riding position and has a high back waistband, but lower in the front. The legs are also shaped to facilitate a seated position with shaped pieces added to the thighs. All this goes hand in hand making the pant very comfortable for strictly dirt riders or adventure riders alike.
-The pant has many other features that add to rider comfort such as two large pockets, with a secure flap, as well as smaller pockets that work perfectly for an ID and credit card. The pant has both waist and lower leg cinch straps that allow adjustability for the perfect fit.
-Attention to detail is evident throughout the pant with all structural seams being triple stitched, full gain leather inner legs, all YKK zippers and hardware and convenient pull tabs to make use with gloves a breeze. http://i816.photobucket.com/albums/z...rontZipper.jpg
Matched with the Colorado Pant is the Colorado Jersey. Designed to be a no frills jersey that offers what every rider needs, durability and comfort.
-The Colorado Jersey uses heavy weight moisture wicking micro-mesh material that keeps the rider cool and dry in the summer and is the perfect base layer for winter riding.
-The jersey has a reinforced V-neck and heavy-duty cuffs for comfort and mobility.
-The jersey has bold, yet simple sublimated graphics that stay cooler in the summer and look cleaner between washes, perfect for all riding conditions.

After several years on ADVrider I am really excited to offer this gear to everyone and am happy to offer 5% off to all ADVriders when they purchase any Dubinky apparel. Please use coupon Code “ADVrider” at check out.
Thanks for all the support and please let me know if there are any questions that I can answer.
Great looking gear..any color options.
You'll be hearing from me soon...plus..Made in the USA!!!
Sorry no other colors right now....:cry Maybe in a few months if things sell decent I can get you guys some more options, especially in the jerseys.
So I know $165 is a big pill to take for pants from an unknown company.
To help get some product out there as cheap as possible I am going to sell one of the sample pairs of pants I have. Only one is available now, so hows $70 plus shipping sound?
The pants are a size Large (40.5-37in waist) and were a sewn sample from the manufacture that is making the current Colorado Pant. This pair is brand new, never worn, and identical to the current pant with the exception of:
-No logos or embroidery anywhere on the pant.
-2 seams on each thigh were only sewn with a single needle vs double needle on the current pant (the seam is still double stitched)
-Fly zipper is plastic coil vs YKK metal
-Leather on the inner legs is a "naked" leather and does not have the high oil content of the current pant. It will still hold up fine, but may show more signs of wear.
-There may be a few faint chalk marks I missed wiping off.....
Fit, function and performance are identical to the current pant.
So $70 bucks for a brand new pair of pants:eek1
Only one is available from the webpage, Dubinky.com. Select the Colorado Pant, add to cart, select a shipping method and then use coupon code "sample" to get $95 off the current price.
In return please post a review or impressions of the pant.
A while back COXR650L asked if I'd be interested in checking out his new line of Dubinke riding wear, I remembered Ben's thread last year in the Rockies forum soliciting design input, there was some good ideas thrown out from riders I know and respect for their abilities. In this area it's not unusual to be riding desert sand one day and 12,000' forested mountains the next so rarely does one outfit work all year. Ben was shooting for a "all weather" design, my curiosity was piqued!
Being no stranger to quality dirtbike gear, I know if you want some that lasts, it's going to cost you. I recently bought a pair of Moose Sahara pants. First ride I went down and the pants split across the knee, 3" tear, I almost got one ride out of a $110 pair of "quality" pants. They're probably fine for some areas but not here in the rockies.
The gear arrived last night, even though I haven't been riding with it yet, I wanted to give some first impressions. The first thing you notice about these pants is they look rugged, think of a pair of Cargo pants in ballistic nylon. The pants are all black with the Dubinky Logo embroidered on the flap of the cargo pocket, nice! I prefer the subdued look when it comes riding gear, some of the flashy MX inspired designs draw allot of stares from the locals when we DS through places like Truth or Consequences or Roswell NM so subtle is good :thumb. You won't feel like James Stewart on the podium wearing this gear.
The two front cargo pockets are large, they'll easily fit my Garmin 60csx when I need to collect tracks on the sly. :D No shortage of storage for cell phone, wallet and most anything you'd want to carry within reason. They utilize horizontal openings so there's less chance of loosing anything compared to the vertical openings found on some highend brands. Also the fact that they are cargo style means if you do fill them up, it's not going to pull the leg tight when you try to close them. I haven't tested it but the design looks like the pockets will be waterproof. Of course, YKK zippers all around. I usually don't wear over the boot pants because most tend to have baggy legs. Ever put your leg down on the peg and have the kickstart go up your pants leg? It's not pretty come next stop. :muutt The Dubinky pants have a cinch strap at the bottom of each leg to keep a tight fit at the cuff. The lower legs are also adjustable so they can be made to fit tight to the boot if preferred. This should accommodate any boot from MX style to a street type boot.
The big challenge as I see it was to create pants that aren't too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter and still provide the protection needed for our kind of riding. Some manufacturers achieve airflow with exotic weaves that usually compromise the garment's crashability and cold weather comfort. Not the case here, the material thickness and coverage is about what you'd expect from rugged durable DS type pants, typically that means they'll be hot in the summer. These incorporate 18" zippered vents on both the front and rear of each leg extending almost to the waist, 4 total. They also have a perforated wicking type liner that is supposed to draw moisture away from the body and provide airflow between the garment's nylon shell and the rider's body. I have no way to test them in hot weather right now but the design looks like it will provide plenty of airflow to the boyz which as you all know is key to staying comfortable.
As for sizing, I'm 5'10"/165#, 33~34" waist. I got the small, I think a 34" waist will be the crossover point to a medium.
The jersey is made of a slightly perforated moisture wicking synthetic with reinforced collar and cuffs. About what you'd expect to see in a football jersey. The color is a white/Grey/black mix, stylish without going James Stewart on your buddies. It compliments the black pants.
From all I can see, Ben incorporated the best of our ideas into his gear. I can attest to the fact that this gear was inspired by ADV riders who do ride, Right On! I'll be posting up my impressions following a ride in a couple weeks, Keep an eye out if you're interested.
I got to see the website today and saw the price of these pants, IMO they are definitely inline with the garment's quality and use. They are priced about what 2 decent pairs of Chinese produced pants cost and you'll need three of those, one for winter, one for summer and one as backup when you shred a pair. I seriously doubt I could shred these pants without getting hurt in the process.
Lastly I want to mention his choice of the name Dubinky, it might sound odd but it's named after the Dubinky Wells region of Whitewash Sand Dunes OHV area in Utah. The area is known for the Dead Cow Loop and The Tubes. Epic trails in an area known for its outstanding riding, the promised land for dirtbikers. If you find yourself in Moab, you won't be dispointed in this ride. :deal
Nice Job Ben and thanks for using our ideas!
Chris, thanks for the feedback. I dont think people would be disappointed once they see the gear.
Sample pants are sold.
I am giving 10% off to adv's and there are also discounts for military police and fire. Check out the website for details.
To jump start sales I will sell the Colorado Pant for $132 and the Colorado Jersey for $29.60, this is only valid through November 12th. PLEASE USE COUPON CODE "RIDEDUBINKY" at Dubinky.com during checkout.
In addition, if anyone is not 100% satisfied after receiving the pants or jersey sold with this offer I will cover return shipping for a full refund of the purchase price on the pants or jersey, (*note: all products always carry a 14 day no questions asked return policy). I am sure this will be the most versatile and one of a kind gear you will ever own. The Colorado Pant is a true do it all riding pant and the Colorado Jersey is a great stand alone jersey for use with body armor or as a base layer in colder weather.
Please check out the sizing charts on dubinky.com prior to ordering, and feel free to ask me any questions.
interested in the discount deal, but whats up with the sizing chart, NO info.
I am 6'4" with a 38 waist and a 36 inseam (jeans) will the large pants be long enough for me?:deal
Also I need at least a XXL jersey, and in some brands a XXXL, any plans on making the jerseys larger?
Sorry web design is all new to me:deal. If anyone else is having problems with the webpage please let me know.
See the bellow sizing chart...
Measurement should be done with a tape measure, held flat, measuring around the waist just above the hips and bellow the navel.
Measurements should be done with a tape measure, held flat, measuring around the widest part of the chest under the arms.
Use a tape measure and check your inseam and PM me and we can discuss it. "jean" sizes can be very misleading. I would guess they will fit, but a lot really depends on your body type and personal preference. I will cover shipping back if you decide they dont fit.
As things sell my plan is to continue to add additional sizes. This would be for the pants (ie tall sizes) and a larger jeresey and additional designs.
If people give the gear a try I think they will be very impressed and you cannot beat the price right now:wink: I have sold several to Rockies Inmates and have had some good feedback. Check out the thread for details http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=840085
Thanks for all the comments and please post any questions or PM me and we can discuss it.
The Dubinky Colorado Pants
I received a package this week from Dubinky… needless to say, I was both curious and excited to open the box and see what Ben had come up with. You see, I had the same wants in riding apparel as Ben does… I am tired of the cheap crap that is made overseas that just has a name brand on it and because of that, they charge a premium for them. Cheap material, cheap construction but charge a premium??? We, as consumers, deserve better than that. So, with my fingers crossed, I opened the package…

The first thing you will notice is the material. This is Real material. Just by touch, you know that this material will take some abuse. You will then have your eyes pulled toward the leather on the lower inside of the pant legs. Yes, I said leather. Not stretchy plastic stuff, not regular material… but real leather. I don’t know how many riders I have seen – especially with an over the boot pant – that has the insides of the lower legs worn out, tore out, or melted out. Not only do those types of pants look like crap when they get to that stage, but they tend to start becoming snag hazards on foot pegs, kick start levers, or what have you. The Dubinky Colorado pants address this issue with the use of good ole’ leather.
While you are looking at the inventive use of leather, you will more than likely notice that the stitching is great quality. Just about every seam is double stitched and is started and finished well. No loose seams or extra stuff hanging off because of poor workmanship. The snaps, Velcro, cinch loops and zippers are also quality components and are attached well.
Made in the U.S.A.!
Bottom Boot Cuff Cinch Strap and Velcro Seams
Knee Area with multiple layers and room for knee armor/braces
Multiple Layer Rear
19" Rear Leg Vents
Rear Waist Line
Waist Cinch Straps – also notice how the rear rises to CYA.
I have yet to get out and ride in these pants, but my first impressions are that Ben did a great job in the design to include great quality materials and workmanship. The best things IMHO… These are designed by riders for riders. It’s also made in the U.S.A. with materials made in the U.S.A. and is the product of a new company located here in the U.S.A.

Great work Ben! :clap :freaky
I think though in full disclosure I should say the stuff I sent Ryan did not fit that great and I just went off his jean size. I am learning there is ZERO correlation to jean size and actual waist and inseam size (also individual body type is hard to account for, ie thick vs thin legs, tall torso vs tall legs, flat ass vs JayLo) it is really important to use a tape and not go off just jean size. I am curious to hear what Ryan's actual waist line measures.
The sizes for the pants are actual measurements and do not reflect jean size.
So for example....
I am 6'1"-6'2" 210 lbs and wear 34x34 jeans, but 36in dress pants. My actual waist measurement is almost 37in and inseam is 32in. The mediums fit me great in the waist, but I still have to cinch them down to about 1/2 the adjustable range to make them comfortable when riding aggressively. They are too short, but still wearable for me (mostly because I did not make any taller sizes for the first run:huh) The Larges are WAY WAY to big and the Smalls WAY, WAY to small.
If anyone has any questions about sizing please PM me and we can discuss it.
Thanks again Ryan :deal
Everyone that ordered this weekend, you packages have been dropped off at either USPS or UPS (I did forget the post office was closed today:cry, but they are in the drop box).
Thanks for the support
So tall sizes coming soon?
Also TODAY is the last day for the Colorado Pant at $132 and the Colorado Jersey at $29.60
