If you are in Denver I can meet you and bring all the sizes for you to try on.

Thanks Ben
How much are they and do you have "tall" versions?
I'm a ~33" waist and 34" inseam.

Yeah, I'm in the Wash Park area.

The pants are $165 (plus 10% adv discount)

Sorry no custom sizes.

Right now I dont have any tall sizes. For the first order I only had enough money to have the standard lengths made.

33in wasit would be the top end of the small, which would probably be too short. If your true (measured with a tape) waist size is 34in or bigger it would be worth trying on the mediums and seeing how they fit. Inseam and waist sizing for jeans can be off several inches from what the actuall measurment is. often the waist is larger and the inseam shorter, go figure....

I am about 210lbs 6'1"-6'2" and the medium fits me "ok" length wise, but certianly a tall would be much better.


So if you think the mediums would fit waist wise we can set up a time for you to try them on.

Posted my first impressions here

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 . 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. 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. 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.

Nice Job Ben and thanks for using our ideas!

Damn. A medium would likely be ok on the waist but I certainly need a taller inseam. The regular on the Klims for instance didnt cut it. :(

Maybe I'll try em on just for fit and finish, but I really need a longer leg.
I am super excited for a quality and properly priced US made (even better.. LOCAL) option!

Ya, I hate to say it but these would be too short then. Send me a PM if you want to meet up some time and check them out anyway. If the pants I have now sell my plan is to introduce at least one tall size in the next batch.

Hey guys so...

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. Or if you are local to the metro area PM me and we can set up a time to meet so you can try it all on etc prior to purchase. For Denver area inmates the discount price will apply as long as you contact me prior to 11-12 and we decide on a time to meet.

In addition, if anyone is not 100% satisfied after receiving the pants or jersey sold with this offer I will cover return shipping (or come and pick it up) 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.


Thanks all,
Ben

I will have to wait for the tall version of pants to come out. No worries, cant re-up gear until spring anyway.

Great deal. I just ordered two pairs of the Colorado pants for my husband. This is the gear he has been waiting for-- vented, durable, and no crazy graphics or colors. He is a tall guy (6'3") and willing to try the regular inseam pants. I think they will work great for him. Thanks for making these, Ben!

Any chance they'll be sized for women? I can wear Klim pants. But they're still too big in the waist. I'm really happy for you that you're live and launched!

Ordered a pair tonight and Ben delivered them in the snow to my front door. Now THAT's customer service. They look great. Good quality all the way around. I can't wait to try them out.

Thanks for all the interest and especially the orders!. This has been sooo much work and financially a gamble so it feels good to make some sales and hear people say they like the stuff so far. I am really thankful to all the support here in the rockies forum it means a lot that you guys will give me and my company a chance. Thank you.



Everyone that has ordered this weekend I will ship your stuff first thing monday.

-Unaweep
You did not use the coupon code so when the credit card batch is settled tomorrow I will refund you the difference.

LoriKTM-
Thank you for the order!

Gitana-
Yes I plan on adding additional sizes if sales go well. At some point the women's market is one area specifically that Id like to look into expanding. If you want PM me and we can talk about if a small may work, or try and set up a time to meet so you can try one on.

Binskies-
My pleasure and thanks for the order!

James Adams-
Thanks for the order! I will get it out first thing monday.

RalphyDo-
Yes I want to add more colors, but it may be awhile (unless you guys keep buying them!) I need to increase my orders of fabric considerably to be able to do custom dye runs from the mills. However, is sales keep increasing I see that as a possibility next year sometime.


Thanks again everyone, let me know if there are any questions.
Ben

Just placed an order for the pants. Anxious to give them a try. I like the solid black color for dual sport use and the venting and pockets look very functional. Just hope I picked the right size!
