The First Kevlar-Lined Jeans
It all started with a motorcycle rider named Hal Baxter. Hal was an enthusiast. Living in North Carolina, the doorway to some of the best riding in the world, he made motorcycling his life. Intent on inventing an alternative to his bulky leather racing suit, Hal experiemented with a few options before inventing his now-world-famous Draggin Jeans in 1995.
Draggin Jeans Is Born
Knowing motorcycle riders well, Hal realized that to make them believe in his product he'd have to do something truly spectacular. So, with the help of some friends, he strapped himself to the back of an old pick-up truck and put his ass on the line to prove that his new Draggin Jeans would do exactly what they were intended to do.
Draggin Jeans Goes International
Motorcycle riders all over the world started to hear about Hal Baxter's amazing new Draggin Jeans. One rider in Australia saw an opportunity and agreed to license the name and product for distribution outside of the Americas. In just a few years, riders could find Draggin Jeans in stores throughout Australasia, Europe and Asia
Draggin Liners Enter The Market
Continuing a tradition of innovation and invention, the Baxter family added an exciting new product to its line-up - 100% Kevlar leggings. A product Draggin holds a patent for to this day
A New Beginning
In 2015, the Baxter family decided to sell Draggin Jeans to another motorcycle enthusiast. Kris Growcott purchased the business and relocated it's headquarters North, to the equally motorcycle-loving state of Minnesota. Kris then set about innovating the product line-up and modernizing the business.
The Custom Line
The first innovation from the new Draggin owner, was the launch of the Custom Line of Draggin Jeans. Featuring stretch denim, pockets for armor, and Sta-Cool moisture-wicking technology, Custom Draggin Jeans bring superior comfort and protection to every ride.
