They're not going to stay on during a crash if they're outside your pants. They need to be under the pants

That is the way I wear them. I can't fathom not wearing them, same and all my other gear. You wouldn't jump out of a moving car at 35MPH so why would you not wear gear on your scooter....

good point.

I did have a low speed get off (20mph) inthe dirt, on the versys (when I broke the rib) and they stayed on.

But yea I can see a benifit at higher speeds or if you roll/tumble.

good info

I should save this pictures to my iPhone for the next time somebody asks "Durr aren't you hot in all that gear?"

Right now my current response is. "This is Texas in the summer, I would be hot even if I wasn't wearing gear."

Jeans, such as Draggin' Jeans, are better than just plain jeans, for sure. But, you still only have patches of Kevlar, in knees, , etc. Far better is to have the entire jeans made out of Kevlar.

Kevlar Jeans

If you opt out of the reflective side stripe, they look like a standard pair of jeans. The company makes each pair custom to you. It requires that you send them a pair of your currently fitting jeans, that they use as a template. You get the jeans back, along with your Kevlar pair, made to the exact same size.

You can get the Air Mesh Kevlar jacket, as well. Their Kevlar gear is the ONLY non-leather gear approved for road racing. In fact, it is 10 times stronger than leather is. Lighter, and cooler, than perforated leather, or the mesh textile jackets, we all tend to wear down here.

Read this, and it will get your mind to thinking about your gear choices.
Save Your Hide

My jacket and jeans are on order now. The waiting list is long, so I have about 6 more weeks to their arrival.

I usually wear canvas pants. While not as good as the kevlar they are much tougher then denim.
