The motorcycle jeans I selected after lots of searching and evaluation are these Alpinestars Resist Tech Kevlar-reinforced denim jeans.
I wanted a pair of Kevlar-reinforced jeans that also gave me strategically-placed knee and hip armor for impact and abrasion protection in those areas.
Many Kevlar-reinforced jeans will give you a reasonable amount of Kevlar in the seat, knees and hips for abrasion protection. And many provide some sort of armor/impact protection on the knees.
But not too many give you impact and abrasion protection on the hips. And that was the feature I wanted as much as the knee padding and seat protection.
I've fallen twice when wearing other brands of Kevlar-reinforced jeans. Both times I wound up with a bruised, road-rash-decorated hip.
Another nice feature is that these pants are made of durable, 12-ounce denim. They stand up well to the rigors and abuse of motorcycle riding.
It's important to point out that no Kevlar-reinforced denim jeans will give you the same high degree of impact and abrasion protection as armored leather pants and some full Kevlar pants equipped with knee and hip armor.
However, these denim riding jeans will protect you infinitely better if you fall off of your motorcycle than will a plain pair of every-day denim jeans.
I got the Alpinestars Resist Tech jeans to wear when the weather is very hot and my heavy-duty motorcycle pants are so uncomfortable they become a distraction.
And I like them because they look like regular straight-fit jeans. After I reach my destination, I can wear them unobtrusively for walking around and hanging out.
Here's what the Alpinestars Resist Tech pants have to offer…
I'll admit, they do cost more than a regular pair of denim jeans. But the extra protection you get if you have an accident is what you're paying for.
And it's worth it.
