So not having this sort of garment before i was surprised how normal(thin) the material is.
,
I expected a thicker,meaning stronger kind of feel to the fabric,


So what are these Jeans supposed to do to the wearer in the way of protection?

The thickness of the denim matters not mate. It could be an inch thick, but as soon as you show it to tarmac at 70mph, it is gone. Its only cotton after all. And in the war of cotton vs tarmac, the black stuff wins every time.


The jeans are not supposed to do anything to the wearer. It is what they prevent from being done that is important. The yellow fabric inside is called Kevlar. It is made by a French company called DuPont. Kevlar is 5 times stronger than steel pound for pound. It is incredibly tear and heat resistant by nature. That is good news for us bikers as it is also soft and pliable, can be machine washed and fitted to almost anything.


There is plenty more info on my website, if you are interested.

It's an interesting question this one as we are programmed to think that thick is better arent we but then how long would our hands last during an off if we were wearing big thick full of fluff ski gloves.............about 2 seconds.

When i came off i was wearing a pair of standard jeans but i may as well have worn my tracksuit bottoms and saved myself a good pair of jeans as i dont think it would have made any difference.
 
My old man is all anti fabric altogether as fabrics have a tendency to catch and snag if you come off whereby leather slides.....i know he's right but the point in me getting the kevlar jeans is this....they are easy to put on and comfortable while riding.....1 factor in me just keeping my jeans on that day was that my leather trousers are such a pain in the arse to get on and not the most comfortable so when i was just nipping a couple miles to get the mot i didnt bother with them.....much to my demise! :o
 
So now if im silly enough to have another one of these moments i can chuck on the Kevlars....a compromise still over leather yes but more enjoyable.....plus if we get a mega hot summer they'll be ideal and save me sticking to the inside of my leather onesy and dehydrating into a bag of Smash. 8) :sun 8) :sun 8) :sun 8) :sun 8)

Your spot on there Nogg. Kevlar jeans are not a replacement for your leathers, they are a replacement fro your jeans. FACT.


Popping down the road a few miles means you are on the bike a shorter amount of time, therefore decreasing the likleyhood of being in a collision. And before anyone jumps in with "most accidents happen within 5 miles of home", I know this. But that is because most driving is done within 5 miles of home and % wise, you are no more likely to crash near home that anywhere else if we compare minute to minute statistics.


As to the RoadRash Kevlar jeans, they have undergone testing and showed good resistance to wear, heat and tears over <5 seconds. Furthermore, a return customer of mine called me a couple of months back to tell me about his off. He was heading down the on ramp, giving it some welly, when a daft smidsy decided to pull some crazy move and T-boned him (or he T-boned her actually). He went arse over tit, over the bonnet of the car after hitting the wing Starsky and Hutch style, and slid down the road from 70+ to a halt. His 3 y/o GSXR Thou was a write off, as was his helmet. He hurt his knee and both his wrists. His RoadRash Jeans were fine. He said he can still wear them, although a "bit" of the stitching came off one of the rear pockets. He had on the Cammy ones at the time, and they were about 2 years old when he crashed. That's 2 years of him wearing them to work as an Electrician in construction, with tools in the pockets, up and down ladders, through all weathers.


I am quite happy with that result.
