jeans are jeans.... none will give you any protection. just remember, leather pants are cheaper than skin grafts.

Mesh overpants. Knee armour (CE rated) and hip protection, plus cortech (or similar abrasion-resistant material) where you need it most.

Knees and skin aren't really appreciated until you mess 'em up.

I usually wear jeans. Too hot here to be wearing leathers on a regular commute in the summer

commuting, jeans.

I don't ride much on the street otherwise. When i first got here a couple frineds took me on a pretty decent day of riding. I wore my full leathers, perforated, and I was fine all day. If I had to sit in traffic that would be different.

I believe there are quite a few brands of padded undershorts and pants out there. They're spandex-like material with hip, tailbone, and knee pads. I've never worn them though, I usually just wear jeans when commuting. But the $hit can hit the fan anytime and I'd rather be safe then sorry.
