For a cool summer ride, try our Draggin® Shirt (Draggin® Liners sold separately). The unique mesh knit is made with 7.25 ounce per square yard DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber, which is comfortable, breathable, allows for excellent air circulation in Summer and layers well in the Winter to help insulate from the cold. Most importantly our Draggin'® Shirts have two layers of protective DuPont™ KEVLAR® aramid fiber at the elbows and shoulders for added protection.
Cut long in length and arms to accommodate all riding positions, this high tech shirt also incorporates adjustable Velcro® tabs at the cuffs to prevent riding up and flapping.
Armored leather is the best safety garment you can wear, but we all know someone who is guilty of wearing just a t-shirt in the hottest summer months. The Draggin’® Shirt easily slips over a t-shirt or replaces it all together and provides some excellent abrasion protection.
Each Draggin’® Shirt is also handmade in the USA!
Please note: The natural color of this protective fiber is canary yellow. Once exposed to sunlight it will deepen to a goldenrod shade. Slight variation in color (as well as the color change) is not only normal, but to be expected.
I have not had to put the shirt to a 'test' and hope I never have to, however, some advice on selecting your size is to be sure to order one size up from your normal as these tend to run a bit tight in their fit. It's a good mesh design but not as soft as the leg linners. Maybe after a wash or two it will soften up.
The color is not quite black so its definitely not going to be a fashion coordination piece but of course it is more about function than fashion.

This is a good shirt but my only complaint is that I would like to see some level of protection in the elbow, shoulders and back. Otherwise this is a good product that fits well. I'm 6' 1" 240 with broad shoulders with no gut and the 3XL fits just right. If you have a beer belly this may be a little snug. Jerome on 7th Jul 2016
Ordered the black shirt with the yellow tag. Looks sharp on line but the shirt arrived and looks faded black and does not have the yellow draggin jeans logo on it. Looks cheap and to top it off its ripped on one of the sides on the bottom. Actually not ripped but like they didn't finish stitching up one side. I'm in Canada so after paying duty for this product it's not worth sending back so I'll get it fixed locally.
DRAGGIN: WE CONTACTED THIS CUSTOMER AND REFUNDED $40 TO HIS CREDIT CARD TO PAY FOR ANY REPAIRS HE MAY HAVE NEEDED. WE ALSO EXPLAINED THAT THE EMBROIDERY ON THE SHIRT WAS THE OLD COMPANY AND WE HAD PHAZED IT OUT. HE WAS VERY HAPPY WITH OUR RESPONSE AND ACTIONS ON HIS COMPLAINT. HE IS STILL A LOYAL DRAGGIN CUSTOMER. chahal on 17th Jun 2016
Hopefully will never get the chance to test how well this protects me, but seems to be a great warm weather shirt. Much better than a t-shirt without adding a lot of bulk. And with the mesh type design, keeps you cool. Size seems to run a little small as the large is a little tight on me. When I order the next color, I'll opt for the XL. Dennis on 9th Apr 2016
Order the black short. Time to ship was great. However, the color not quite black. Closer to a dark brown. Packing slip said it was black. Tag on shirt said it was yellow. I called to make sure they sent the correct shirt and was told they all start out as yellow and they dye the black one. There is no brown one sold so this must just be the way they can come. Not a big deal. But also not what I was expecting. Was going to order the yellow one. Now not so sure.
Also, I usually wear a L or XL depending on brand. I ordered a large and it is just a bit snug. That's OK since I don't want it flapping around. But I better not gain any weight... Dennis on 30th Mar 2016
This shirt is really great. I know it will offer the road rash protection with the DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber. But this shirt is also very lightweight and breathable... it's all mesh! The moment you get rolling, the wind will cut right through the shirt and cool you down.
During the summer, I'll wear this with hard armor and no jacket. During the fall/winter, I'll still wear this under a jacket to ensure I get the right road rash protection.
This Kevlar® shirt is really the most optimized shirt for summer use, which is a big deal. It will also probably last a really long time due to the durability of Kevlar®. You should not wait to buy this. Save your skin! Brad on 6th Aug 2015
I usually wear between M and L depending in the style. In any way, I decide to go with the M and actually works perfect me. Also, I was concern about the feeling for the direct contact between my skin and the klevar material, and surprisingly is not bad at all, actually feel ok.

I added the yellow Draggin' shirt to my Draggin' pants in hopes that road rash would be greatly minimized if ever in a riding accident. I've seen many cyclists and motorcyclists with road rash and this shirt gives me a high level of protection and piece of mind. I call it my Mithril shirt like what Frodo and Bilbo wore in Lord of the Rings. I get compliments on it and in hot AZ summers, the airflow is awesome even when worn under a mesh jacket. bmwtrek60 on 26th Apr 2015
I've bought 3 of these shirts last year for my trip out west and really liked having the peace of mind knowing that I would be protected from road rash in the event something would happen. I ordered another 3 shirts for my collection for a longer coast to coast trip I plan on making this summer. These shirts are a no brainer if your looking for protection of your upper torso.

This is the kind of product that you never really want to actually test. But it is made very well, is true to size, and looks like it would do its job. I feel safer wearing it. Andy on 17th Dec 2014
