Hal Baxter began marketing his new invention, Draggin' Jeans in 1996. The now famous image of Hal dragging behind a pick-up truck comes from his early R&D. Unsatisfied with sandbags, Hal put his ass on the line, literally, knowing that only a genuine body would provide realistic weight distribution for testing seam strength and pressure points. After several revisions, Draggin' Jeans were born.
Hal developed Draggin' Jeans as an alternative to hot, bulky, leathers. Perfect for those times when leather is too much of a hassle. Draggin' Jeans are lined with Dupont ™Kevlar® aramid fibers that, on a strength to weight basis, are five times stronger than steel. Soft and pliable, Dupont™ Kevlar® aramid fibers line the knees and seat of our jeans in a knitted protective layer, providing superior protection where you need it most.
To this day Draggin is a family owned and run business, manufacturing in America, with American made materials. We pride ourselves on quality, comfort, protection and customer service.
