They will shrink a little like regular denim does, but due to the stretch properties you won't feel any different. I've been wearing the prototypes for over a year, and they are still going strong.

Great work. I like the full Kevlar idea. Understanding your a start up company I hope the price comes down in the future. Good luck and thanks for trying to help us out.

Looks good!

Where exactly is the armor's velcro? Specifically, on what surface are the velcro hooks, and on what surface are the loops? Does either velcro surface ever contact the wearer's skin? I'd like to know exactly how the velcro interacts with the jeans, the armor, and the rider!

I ask, because my riding jacket has a velcro collar closure with the hooks on the outside tab, facing my neck - if it isn't lined up perfectly, my neck gets scratched by the hooks...

Hey Matt, there are no velcro hooks. The softer velcro is located inside the armor pocket, blocked by the armor pockets sports mesh liner. The harder scratchy velcro is on the armor itself.

Here are some pictures:

Knee and hip pads


This is a picture from inside the knee armor pocket. As you can see, the velcro on the armor lines up perfectly with the velcro on the jeans and your knee is on the opposite side completely.


This is all your knee will touch

the velcro is on the opposite side

These pictures were taken from my jeans that are over a year old.

Check out what's behind all the sports liner:

Perfect. I think what I was calling "velcro hooks", you call the "harder scratchy velcro"...

How do the hip pads affect the sizing? The jeans I'm wearing today have plenty of room in the knees for armor, but with my wallet and phone in the pockets they definitely become tighter.


Is the hip armor just as easily removed as the knee armor?

The hip pads do not affect sizing, the denim has a slight stretch factor thanks to the 2% spandex, so the fabric relieves the pressures of the pads perfectly. The hip armor thickness is the same as my iPhone 5 in its case, but very flexible and breathable.

Yes, the hip armor is easily removed. The pocket is held by a stitch on the bottom so it does not move, and the pocket has a flap style system so the velcro does not rub up against your skin.

This is great to know, we will offer black in the near future. The good thing about our company is that we are riders, and we will continue to listen, adapt, and enhance our protective jeans with the feedback of fellow riders.

Too bad you don't make them for short FF's like me a 54 waist x 28 inseam. Finally found some from the UK in that size but keep in mind that not everyone is in the "standard" size ranges.
I applaud your efforts and wish you every success.

What kind of riding / crash testing have you done in your 1 yr old pair of jeans, can we see a pic of the ones you've worn for a year pls?.
What kind of care/washing instructions are required?

Cheers

You've done your homework: looks to be well thoughtout. Is there a cargo pant style in the future?

TESTING
We sent the jeans to TÜV Rheinland in Germany to test for Personal Protective Equipment for the CE Mark EN 13595-2 LEVEL 2 (abrasion, impact, burst tests) and we passed the tests , we are currently pending CE mark EN 13595-2.

Wow. Impressive. Don't listen to the whiners about the price. These are a steal at your asking. $75 MSRP in Armor alone. Good luck with your venture.
