I have had a pair for about a year now. Comfortable and durable. I can't speak to how they would hold up in a real crash though.

I use them weekly at the mini lot racing the 50 around and they've held up to a lot of crashing with very little wear to show for it. The denim is still in tact on the hips and areas after several slides.

I have a pair. They are really comforatable but in a crash I just don't know how they would hold up. More protection than regular jeans and has the knee protector but other than that I just don't know.

This is what I'm thinking. I don't want to field test them!
