Wouldn't those be REAL stiff?

In fact, it reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer wore those really tight jeans. They were like steal-reinforced!

I've got a pair (JR Steel Jeans), comfortable feel almost like any other pair of jeans. But how much more protection?:eh: They make me feel a little more protected and I can wear them to work and nobody notices..........
I also bought a pair of the Icon's................a little baggie, much more of a hooligan style

i saw these at cycle gear i wasnt too impressed they may save from the rash a little but why compromise, get some mesh pants with armors, you can find some for $80-100....

I have a pair of draggin' jeans, they fit good and don't look ridiculous. I even wear them when I'm not riding sometimes. I had a low speed drop where I ate concrete for about 5-6 feet or so, got a scuff on my knee but no damage to the pants weirdly enough. My verdict is they are better than normal jeans for a low speed mishap, but at any type of speed I'll be wishing I wore something else.

i know guys who wear these. They swear by them. They will save you some rash and you still look casual. So you can ride to bars/theaters/parties and still be safe. (that is if you don't drink too much at the bar )
