These jeans are a modified version of our Relaxed Fit Draggin’® Jeans , tailored specifically for “big men.” The Blue Big Men’s Draggin’® Jeans have a classic 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.
PLEASE NOTE: The Relaxed Fit Draggin'® Jeans DO NOT HAVE POCKETS FOR ARMOR. Armor can be added directly to the knitted Kevlar lining with the use of provided industrial velcro tabs. If you would like jeans with armor pockets in them, please consider our new COMFORT jeans.
When the buckle on my chaps broke I looked at different options to replace them. All weather pants, armored (lined?) jeans, chaps... They were all about the same price but I'd never tried jeans.
The trouble with any of them is that none seemed to have a size large enough for me to be comfortable and not sorry about ripping them apart at the seams.
I hesitantly ordered the Big Men's after measuring for size several times.
I shouldn't have worried. I ordered a bit larger than I measured but didn't need to. I've had these jeans for 2 months and have but on about 15,000KM with no regrets. fortunately I haven't had to test the durability in a crash but they are definitely a well made heavy duty product. On the hottest of days you might bit of swass but it's not terrible.
When I go to replace these I will order what I measure without adding extra.
Great product! Stephen on 5th Sep 2018
My first pair wore thin after 3 years, so I got another pair, which worked well when I was run over by a deer in Maine a month ago. The damn thing overtook me from behind (at 30mph) and tried to cut in front of me, running into me instead. I slid for almost 100 feet on my side, and walked away from the wreck with only a couple of abrasions. My Electra Glide was totaled, and the deer was nowhere to be found. The back pocket wore through where my chain wallet was, and there were a few other places where the denim was damaged.
I would recommend getting a length a couple of inches longer than your regular jeans, as the 30" length on the same length inseam caused the cuffs to pull up nearly to the top of my boots. The last pair ordered is 34" inseam, which is perfect for riding, and I simply fold up the cuffs for walking around without the boots on. Gerry Cox on 12th Jul 2018
These are great jeans. Quality is outstanding, however, the armor is a waste of money. There are no pockets for the armor. You are supposed to peel off some Velcro tabs, stick them to the armor, and stick the knee and hip pads to the inside of the jeans. Total joke.
DRAGGIN: We agree that the old system for attaching the armor isn't perfect. Which is why we've added pockets for armor to our comfort line jeans. We are in the process of adding them to our Big Men's jeans and hopefully will have those available later this year. We're glad you like the jeans and are sorry that the armor system doesn't meet your standards. We would happily refund you for the armor inserts at anytime. Unknown on 4th Jul 2018
I own 3 pair! I use the older pair (about 5yrs old)to do odd jobs around the house! Very well made and long lasting! I’ve haven’t had the pleasure of testing a pair out in a M/C crash, however I have full confidence in there protection! P.S. I own three Kevlar shirts from Dragging Jeans as well! There awesome !

I recently completed a 1275 mile motorcycle trip with temperature ranges from 23 to 80 degrees F. I wore the Big Men's Blue Draggin Jeans the entire time, with the addition of a base layer at the lower temperature. I never felt cold in these jeans (with base layer) even at 25 F and driving at highway speeds. These were very comfortable, breaking in easily after an hour or so on the motorcycle. I could not recommend them enough. Thanks for putting out a pair of great jeans, built for larger dudes. Rick on 19th Nov 2017
I wear a 46x30
The 48X30 fits perfect.
I have not crash tested the jeans. I hope I never will. However, the jeans fit great and look nice. Kelly Lucas on 21st Aug 2017
This is the firts pair I've purchased. They are slightly heavier than a typical pair of jeans. I recommend that you measure you current pair that is comfortable and order based on those measurements. They fit perfect when I tried them on. Mike on 8th Aug 2017
Thank you Eric for your excellent customer service! Now if you are going to buy a set of these jeans, make sure you are really honest with yourself about the sizing. What does that mean? My jeans are normally a 46 x 32. In these jeans I needed a 48 x 30. The reason being is that the extra Kevlar material in the inside makes them tighter than usual. As well the inseam is very generous, meaning that the 32 inseam was to long for me. I exchanged them, which by the way was a very easy to do, they have excellent customer service and are very easy to deal with.
The cut on the 48 x 30 is virtually identical to my usual jean size. These jeans are very comfortable out of the box. Be sure tomtry them on before removing labels, tags or washing, to verify the fit. They are preshrunk, however once I washed and dried them they did shrink a little, but thats ok, Imwas hoping for that. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS JEANS. and will be buying more in the future!

Over the years, I have purchased several pants and a shirt from Draggin. They are well constructed, and fit as advertised. Thanks for creating a quality product. Bill Shenenberger on 16th Jul 2017
Ordered these because I wanted to wear jeans instead of overpants or actual motorcycle pants. True to size and feel comfortable. Did not get the armor though. Wish they came in black too. Overall very happy with them. Unknown on 15th Jun 2017
