Do you guys get these primo jeans in the US?

Came off my second bike(K100 BMW) and did not get a scratch on me.

They are the goods.

I've been wearing them for years. American Sport Bike is a dealer for Fast Company, the company that makes Draggin Jeans. We're one of their older dealers, in fact. Once upon a time, Fast company made CF parts for Buells. It was their involvement with advanced textiles in hard parts that led them to develop the Kevlar reinforced jeans. That took off for them, then they stopped building hard Buell parts.

Joanne was wearing her draggin jeans when she wrecked up in Kings Canyon. She still wears those pants, they barely got damaged. Denim will usually rupture in a wreck, but the kevlar takes the tensile stress and then the denim doesn't tear.

I have been wearing them for several years. I like them, a little warmer than regular jeans. I have never tested them yet, but have test levis not good for asphalt surfing.

Fast Company Draggin Jeans work and they work very well.

Supporting Hickory NC is always a good thing too : )

If you guys are interested in a cheaper alternative, a website rated the Carhartt Double Front jeans. I bought them from Sierra Trading Post. I like them, feel comfortable and breathes nice. Also, I wear shin/knee mx pads underneath for added protection.

Here is the Cordura version.
