What's the hotness in riding jeans?

I wanna start looking into some bottom protection that I can also use when I'm walking around school or street riding.

David (awesome cycles) I remember you were wearing some, what kind are those? They looked comfortable.

The ones I have seen online seem bulky and tapered at the bottom. Do they make riding jeans that are wider at the bottom, to cover the top of your shoes?

I've been tempted to pick up a pair of these...

http://www.dragginjeans.com/default.aspx

Note that these will keep you from getting road rash, but you could still have impact issues. If I had them, I'd virtually always wear knee protection underneath.

Bohn makes some interesting stuff, I'm just not that comfortable in stuff that fits that tight. I don't even like the under armor most of us wear under our leathers.

go down to Motorcycles Unlimited and get the fieldsheer riding jeans, they got em in stock and you can try em on, and the price is very fair.

It looks like no matter what you pick, it'll cost at least $100. I guess a small price to pay for safety.

Well, you could invest in some knee pads like these

http://www.sandhillspowersports.com/...&PCR=1:5:50008

Or the A* bionic line. Just wear them under your pants/jeans. While they aren't riding pants for $25-50 it is better than nothing.

Looks like I'm gonna have to make a trip up north again. How are they in the groin area? Are the bottom tapered or boot cut like?
