Default Riding Jeans

I was looking at Kickstarter this morning and found a company that is wanting to make some riding jeans (link below). I have no affiliation with them, but IMO, they look decent and they are pretty reasonably priced, at least from what I have seen out there. Most dent to look patched together if they are on the cheaper side, otherwise you are in over $100. It looks like it will need some publicity to get backed, but I figured it couldn't hurt.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...an/description

If anyone else has any options for riding jeans, throw them out there. I just thought this one looked interesting.

I bought a pair of these 5-6 years ago.

I'm sure they would be great for protection, but they were fairly cumbersome and I felt like I had to pull my belt tight as could be to keep the in the right place.

/\ That is mainly what I have found too. I like the style of the kickstarter pair quite a bit more - they almost look as if they could pass for regular jeans.

Agreed.

But I have huge legs and it's really difficult for me to find a pair of regular jeans that fit correctly, much less with the inserts.

For someone who is a slimmer fit, they likely wouldn't be too bad.

I got the same issue. I am not as concerned about inserts, but it would to at least have a pair that wouldn't shred would be nice.

Very interesting. Nice alternative to wearing leathers.

That is a good thought. I shot them a message. See what kind of reply I get back on it.

Yeah. I prefer cloth myself. There are videos out there of similarly made jeans. They take a beating.

The jeans on the kickstarter page don't have the pads in... there's no way they would pass as "regular jeans" with the pads in (which is to be expected). They do look pretty decent though, unlike a lot of other jeans that have the knee patches, etc. The pads also look to cost money on top of the jeans, themselves.

All of the american market ones are basically terrible. Either they are nothing more than a kevlar napkin sewn in or their fit is for fatties. And they are still kind of expensive.

Sadly, to get the good shit, you have to REALLY spend money. https://www.dragginjeans.net/ But they are awesome and come in virtually every size and cut.

But youre still dealing with a pair of jeans that you cant really wash and that gets a little rough if you wear them every day. I prefer to wear armor under regular jeans. Closer to the body so its more protection, cheaper to buy and more flexible.

They make ones that arent skinny jeans (as I cant wear them either) but they also make them so you dont look like you have a full diaper either.

That is probably the best description I have seen of most of them.

The link to the jeans you posted look good. They are pretty proud of them though.
