Motorcycle Consumer News Recommended Buy! The Classic Draggin’® Jeans have a straight leg with the traditional five pocket design. We also incorporate a larger change pocket on the left side for ease of use on your motorcycle. The jeans are constructed with 14.5 ounce denim and lined at the knee and backside with our famous knitted 13.5 ounce DuPont™ KEVLAR® aramid fiber lining. The protective lining extends from just below the belt loops to, well, just below your ass and extends across from hip seam to hip seam. The protective lining also covers your knee and wraps around the outside of the knee and shin.
A NOTE ON SIZING: Our jeans are cut true to size. Your jeans probably are not. PLEASE refer to our notes on sizing by clicking here, and to the size chart below before purchasing. The best way to determine your own waist size is to button a pair of your jeans and measure the distance between the left and right sides of the waist band. Double that and you've got your waist measurement and the size Draggin’® Jeans that will fit you best. Your jeans may say they're a 46, but in all likelihood, they're actually a 48. Please check before buying.
Each pair of Draggin’® Jeans motorcycle jeans is handmade in the USA! They are pre-washed and pre-shrunk.
I've tried four or five different brands of Kevlar lined MC jeans. Draggin Jeans are, BY FAR, the sturdiest, highest quality I've found. Denim is THICK (which is good), stitching is MUCH better than foreign-made alternatives, and the lining is perfect.
Only reason I'm going with four stars vs. five is the fit/cut. Classic fit feels baggy on me. Slim fit is tight. pokey074 on 19th Jun 2014
I purchased these to replace another pair of riding jeans that was starting to fall apart and the "protection" on those left a lot to be desired. These jeans arrived quickly, are very comfortable, and appear to provide good protection where it is needed most. I actually find these jeans so comfortable that I sometimes wear them even if I am not planning on doing any riding. Jeremy on 18th Jun 2014
The jeans are extremely comfortable and fit well. Unknown on 13th May 2014
This is my third pair of Draggin Jeans. My first pair were purchased in 2003. Although somewhat faded after numerous washing they are still wearable. I am a serious long-distance rider and found my draggin jeans a comfortable riding pant over a wide range of temperatures. Because they are denim they breathe and are therefore comfortable in very hot conditions, and because they are heavy denim, they keep you comfortable in colder temperatures. As for offering protection, in 2011, while riding a twisty back-road in the British Columbia interior I hit a large deer at about 60 mph. on my Goldwing. The deer was killed on impact and my bike sustained $14,000 damage, and except for a bruised right knee - the deer's head hit my leg and my knee crushed the radiator on the bike - I walked away from the incident. I give credit to the Kevlar in the knee area of the jean from protecting me from puncture wounds and other serious injury. In summary, I really like these jeans and would not consider a trip without wearing them. BTW, I'm 69 years old and have been riding for 52 years. Pete B. on 2nd May 2014
These Jeans are awesome! They are sized exactly right, and the fit is "classic" as stated. Don't waiste your time or money on any of the knock offs or copies. Get the these!! Very thick denim and well made. Unknown on 25th Apr 2014
Long story short; I like 'em. They're well made and very, very comfortable. I have not experienced their crashworthiness so I can't comment on that.
I consider these to be another tool in the arsenal against road rash. I wouldn't want these as an only jean. For multi day/ multi state touring I'll continue to wear my Aerostich Dariens primarily because those are waterproof. However, for around town, local trips and general day to day riding, these will get the nod.
My only complaint would be the lack of a pocket for the knee armour. This is why I scored them a 4 instead of a 5. John on 22nd Apr 2014
These jeans are the best. One thing I noticed while riding on a 90 degree day is the jeans insulate from the engine heat, particularly while stopped at a traffic light and my calves and thighs didn't burn like they would with regular jeans. The only complaint I have with these jeans is the waist is smaller by size than most other jeans. I wear 36 x 34 and I would suggest ordering a 38" waist for those that also wear a size 36" waist. I hope I never have to test the Kevlar but trust the protection will be much better than regular jeans. I recommend these jeans. boydv on 17th Apr 2014
Nice heavy comfortable pair of jeans. A little expensive, but just what I was looking for. Unknown on 16th Apr 2014
I ordered these to replace my 10+ years old dragging jeans. I recommend them very highly. Very comfortable. Dave Sumner on 8th Apr 2014
I like the jeans. Seem to be very well constructed and look good off the bike. Deep front pockets, not too slim and not too baggy. The Kevlar is in the right places and the length is good for the riding position, fit great over my boots and don't ride up like some jeans I've had. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is they are very benign. Nothing special looking, which is cool but they could be improved with a little more style. Having said that they do fit great, not too hot, not too heavy, good jeans at a fair price. Ted on 1st Apr 2014
