I have found through experience that one problem with looser fitting pants is the knee armor can shift out of position, especially on impact with the ground. How are these in that respect?

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.
The leg opening on the 32x36 is 9 inches.

The knitted inside liner also stretches, you can move freely with no binding.

Thanks for that link. How stretchy are the waists? For example, would the 32 stretch enough to accommodate a 33 inch waist if I gained a few lbs?

Maybe a nice touch would be 7 belt loops instead of 5 , just like the older made jeans.
Are the front pockets too large ?
Also the space between the 2 front loops has to be large enough to accommodate a large belt buckle.

What do you mean, are the front pockets too large??

I'd also like the extra belt loops but it'd add a couple bucks to the price I s'pose.

I've been able to put a couple days and a few hundred miles into a pair. My thoughts:

They are very comfortable to put on. I like the denim material and the liner, and the armor is not obtrusive at all. You generally don't know its there with one exception (below).

They do need additional belt loops. Without enough loops you're tugging on areas of your pants between the loops whenever you're walking. The issue is made worse by the weight of the pants. Between the linings and armor, and too-few loops, I felt like I had to walk around literally holding my pants up. I'm thinking of suspenders, but that sorta defeats the whole "blend in" theory of denim.

After a couple 6 or 7 hour days my left knee is rubbed pretty raw on the armor pocket. To be fair, I'm breaking in a pair of quality elkskin gloves right now too and I have raw spots on my hands, so it may just be break-in. But for me at least the left knee armor pocket is causing some irritation on my knee.

The sizing is true. If anything the waist is a little big, but they have not been washed so I expect them to shrink up a bit.

I can compare to Aerostich's non-Kevlar riding jeans. These have a more comfortable material, and the armor is much less obtrusive (plus these have hip pads where Aerostich does not). These are physically heavier jeans, meaning when you walk around these always are kinda wanting to end up around your ankles. A couple more belt loops may help, but I may use suspenders. These are enough more comfortable that I'd be willing to wear suspenders just to make it easier off the bike.

I like them, and with a couple little modifications I'd buy them again.

Thanks for the review, given your feedback and price I think I would have to try on a pair before buying.

The material is quite comfortable, you will find no binding whatsoever.

I haven't gotten to ride in them yet, but at least I can say the customer service is top notch ! I am in between sizes in almost everything, and these were no exception. So I order the larger size and they were too big. After a quick PM, Kevin had the exchange underway w/ a super quick turn-around.

Thanks Kevin !

Got mine today. Unfortunately, they're too small. I will say, they look extremely well-made and I can't wait to try out a pair that fit!

When I ordered them, I was told I'd see 34 x 34 on the invoice but would receive 36 x 34 jeans. The jeans I received are, according to the tag, 34 x 34. They fit like 34 x 34, i.e. they were nice and snug on me. My wife liked the tight fit. Me, not so much.

I guess I get to test the exchange policy!

Edit: Exchanged email with Kevin. Very fast response for the Friday of a holiday weekend! I got the right size jeans, they're just too tight for me. For reference for other buyers, I wear a 36 x 34 jean, but they're "Relaxed Fit" jeans. 501's do not fit me. 559's do. Kevin is sending me a pair of the next size up, can't wait to try them!
