This...They have Kevlar in every place he was rashed and they look like regular jeans. Cycle Gear has some house brand Kevlar jeans for 1/2 the price of the "Draggins."

There are different grades of textile gear.

Essentially, the cheaper stuff (polyester) doesn't work as well as a higher quality nylon.

Olympia has a nice write up on it.

I use to commute in an aero stitch suit over my work clothes every day. It kept me clean and I didn't worry about rain.

I went down once in jeans at about 40mph. I slid on my hands and knees as well as my arms too. The gloves fingertips ground off and got my fingers and palms. The jeans ripped up and I got a hole in my knee that took 6 months to heal up. After that, I never rode in just jeans again.

If you are going to ride daily, Aerostitch all day!

These threads always crack me up. There are two ways to guarantee you won't get road rash:

Don't crash
Stay home.
