Reinforced riding jeans !?

Ok so I was reading some accident case studies and scared myself out of my khaki A&F riding shorts . Decided I was going to make an honest effort to find some good mid-ground between riding pants and Jeans. I have heard of some and Ill list what I think so far after this post, but most arenít what Iím wanting. I was wondering if anyone had any killer ones.

Draggin Jeans
http://www.motorcycle.com/mo/mcbewar...gin.jeans.html
Summary: Heavy-weight jeans with a Kevlar (coupled with some other stuff) liner.
What I think: Too hot. I need something ill like to wear as well as increase my safety! On top of the weight I cant wear straight leg jeans. And I think thatís all they make.

Gas Jeans
What I hear/read: I HEARD somewhere they had some protection. What I READ didnít say anything about that. If you know for sure they do. . . this is what I want. I think they have the right idea with style and a medium protection level.

Diamond Gusset Jeans
http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle-jeans/
Summary: Made for riding, but I donít see any extra protection over regular jeans. Only extra feature I have found is that they have an expansion gusset in the crotch area to allow for more comfortable motor-humping.

Brosh Power Jeans
http://www.brosh.com/new/default.asp?pid=106&L=1
Summary: They are regular jeans with inserts in the knees and hips. I am sure this is good protection when you fall and roll, but I want more than just that. Plus they work with inserts, which you know are gonna feel weird.

OK ok ok. . . I just might possibly be asking too much here. I mean I want comfortable, low/medium (road rash resistant), stylish, breathable protection . . . oh yea and I want it to look good!

I just think that knowing what I DO know about the textile industry and the multitude of material available there must me something out there that Iím just not seeing. If there isnít, someone could make a million making this kind of thing for us young, risk savvy riders.

Iím in the game of understanding and courting risk. . . I ain't trying to marry the . right:

Re: Reinforced riding jeans !?

If your gonna ride why dont you get a pair of the fieldsheer mesh pants from Patrick? I got a pair and they are much more comfortable then jeans and uncomparable protection with armor on hips, hard armor on the knees, kevlar on the , and even armor over the shins.

If your just gonna pose then u might as well put on ur linen shorts with ur stylish sandals :eh:

If your commuting then I'd go with whatever you wear to work (jeans I'm guessin). I wore some jean shorts under my mesh pants when I dropped my bike off for some repairs and it works okay as well.

Re: Reinforced riding jeans !?

so nobody knows about those Gas jeans? They are not reinforced?

I do want to pose. . . of how I do. But there is a difference between reinforced jeans and shorts. But it was a clever quip.
