I know, everyone knows more about your business then you do....
I will contact them to see if they are interested once our website is up

No worries, we are open to suggestions.

Hate to be a "big critic", but I was wondering what happens to polyethylene under heat of friction with asphalt. Does UHMWPE behave like nylon or like polyester?

Glad you asked that question, we wondered the same thing when considering using this highly advanced fiber for our protective jeans. UHMWPE has a high thermal conductivity (290-306F); Kevlar® has a low thermal conductivity (930F+-). The effects of friction heat depends on several factors: type of asphalt, air temperature, pavement temperature, water (if any), garment temperature, speed during contact, contact location, contact duration, etc. There is a lot of "hearsay" on the internet regarding UHMWPE and it's protection for motorcycle riders, mainly by companies promoting their own protective fiber and products. This is why we relied on a third party testing facility from an internationally recognized laboratory like TUV Rheinland to prove that our Kevlar®/UHMWPE blended internal protective liner works.

Ok, my pair just arrived today. Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I haven't ridden in them yet (pouring rain). Given that, let me just say that I am VERY pleased with the fit and finish.

These are described as true to size (at least by American standards), and I that seems right on. My "regular" jeans are a size 36, and I ordered a size 38 in these jeans. I was being cautious, as I have had too many motorcycle jeans fit waaaayyy to small. The size 38 are actually a bit roomy, but with the Forcefield armour in they fit only a little bit big. That's not a bad thing, because I would much rather have these a little roomy than a little tight!

The armour fitting is great. There is ample room in the knee armour pockets to adjust things, and the velcro feels secure.

Perhaps best of all, these look pretty much like "regular" jeans, but are Kevlar lined. Even my wife wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen out in public with me wearing these!

All in all, I have no regrets about spending the money on these. I am very pleased, and wish you the best success in making these the standard of protective motorcycle jeans.

Thanks for your comments, after the first wash they should fit even better. Thanks for providing feedback.

First place to go out in the jeans for me is the crotch area. Would I have any issues with this pair?

This is why we selected 12.5oz denim, thick, durable, and with the spandex blend it will not be too rigid, you would be fine.

Mine arrived today...

My jeans arrived today so here is part one of my review of them.







The armor. This stuff is Forcefield so you know it's good. These pieces are triple layered and the knee armor pieces are stitched down the middle to hold it together. The hip armor is glued at the center. With both sets as you can see, the layers are able to move and flex. Hip pieces are marked left and right.









You get a couple of decals with your jeans.



The jeans. (ignore the color of the first photo of the jeans, I had the camera set to vivid color)
These are heavy! I was kinda surprised actually at the weight of them when I lifted them out of the box but I guess when you consider that there are the jeans, a layer of Kevlar and a layer of sport mesh then it makes sense.



I ordered the darker blue color.



Everything is well stitched together and the inner mesh feels nice.



Nice small touch.



The hip pocket opens at the center, and is held together with velcro.



The armor sits in the pocket nice and snug and does not move around a lot, ie: there isn't an excess of pocket for it to do so like some other brands. Even with the armor in everything sits snug and flat.



The knee armor feeds into it's pocket from the bottom and is easy to place. I just held my hand against it while feeding it in to stop the velcro from attaching itself prematurely, then laid it where i thought it should go and closed the bottom of the pocket with its velcro closure.



As to the sizing, well due to a mix up I got a size 36 instead of my 32's that I ordered so these are going back and my new ones will be on the way tomorrow. Part two of my review will be a few days away.

Daz.

I'm going to try a pair too.

no longer have a private office so it's a PITA to change in/out of my summer revit pants.

Good looking jeans, and well designed.

Do you have any specific measurements? In particular, I'm looking for the leg opening. I read that they are slight boot cut, but would like to be able to confirm the leg opening on a 32x36 pair.


Also, for those of you that have these, can you feel the stretch? I'm wondering if the Kevlar and inner mesh liner nullify the stretch of the outer denim, or do you feel able to move without binding? I absolutely love the idea of stretch without those ugly accordion panels.
