jeans

What type of material should I look for, for the best protection from rash? I'm talking department store jeans, don't have the money for kevlar jeans or any "riding" jeans for that matter. How about fit? Tight, relaxed, loose?

Heaviest jeans you can afford, relaxed fit, a little long in the legs. Heavyweight work pants would be another good option.

There was actually a test done by one of the magazines, and they discovered something rather interesting: A pair of Dickie's work pants has a greater degree of abrasion resistance than Draggin' Jeans (or any other "motorcycle" denim).

Heavy denim is preferred - all cotton too - stay away from anything polyester. While it is stronger, it tends to melt under heat.

Wrangler is actually pretty damned good. 14.5oz denim, double/triple stitched on the seams, and YKK zippers. Add in the bonus of them being <$20 a pair at Wall-Mart and you can call it an all around score. If you want extra protection, toss a pair of knee pads and hip pads under them.

That is some very interesting info, but personally I would rather look good in some designer jeans and worry about rash IF it happens.

Thats your choice. If you need designer jeans to look good though - well...your boyfriend is going to be very disappointed as you get older...

Not really an option for some people, yanno?

Lets see....$100.00 for a pair of Draggin or similar jeans, vs. $15 for a pair of Wranglers and another 20 for a set of knee pads you can wear under any pants...

For $100 you've got 4 pairs of jeans and the pads as opposed to a single pair of the others. Sure, if you've got money falling out your , fine, but if you're like some of us and have to balance your passions with real life....

I am NOT saying they are better than leather pants, but, when you have to juggle money....
