I found this on WebBikeWorld:
...so we were just puttering along at our own pace, we came up to a 'middle-of-nowhere' intersection. Since there was no traffic we weren't planning to actually 'stop' at the intersection, just cruise on through. I clutched in, down shifted, and coasted up to the turn, checked for traffic, then leaned into the turn, let out the clutch and rolled on the throttle. Unfortunately for me when I down shifted I missed first and ended up in neutral. I was into the turn with too much lean and too little speed - when I realized the mistake I did the exact wrong thing and grabbed a handful of brake.

Can you guess what happened next?

Down went the FJR, and down I went. I ended up landing on both knees, skidding a little bit, and then rolling over to the left, smacking my forearm into the pavement before my head thumped onto the ground - thankfully on the grassy side of the road and not into the pavement.

I sat for just a second, made sure everything still moved correctly then got up and helped my dad get the FJR back upright.

I surveyed the damage - the bike is... better than it could be, nothing's cracked, but the bodywork is scratched all to hell and gone. I then started looking over my gear - despite a hit and slide on pavement the jeans were perfectly fine - there's a little rub on one of the knees, but the denim (which is really a let heavier than standard denim) held. Of course my leather jacket and gloves survived intact, as did my helmet. Had it hit on the road rather than (relatively) soft ground I'm not so sure it would have, but there are no marks, and no deformation of the foam.

So that's a little 'real-world' report on the Draggin' Jeans - my get-off was at fairly low speed - I'd say no more than 15-20 MPH, but they did work as advertised, no tears in the fabric and no tears in my flesh.
The article was very positive, and the author actually ordered more sets for both him and his wife after reviewing them.

The key here is... they are NOT anywhere near as good as a full leather protective suit, but they are WAY better than standard jeans.

I'm somewhat biased, but here's my thoughts.

I'm a dealer btw :D

First off, they are $190-200cdn, depending on colour. The jeans are one size out (if you wear 34, buy 36s). Khakis and cargos fit right on. I own a few pairs, my favourite being my urban camos (I have pics but not on this computer). They are comfy as hell and I've seen them hold up. They are for skid protection and are tested to 15 seconds (sold "good for 10").

Now...here's the confusing part. There is a dragginsjeans.com and a dragginjeans.com/au.

The .com is a US based site that simply makes the original Draggin's, from years past. They are still better than jeans, but are very basic. The Australian site, is the OG. They started it and are constantly updating and bettering the product. They blow the US ones outta the water. The ones in the US are the same company, but a different product. Does that make sense?

I will back Dragginjeans.com/au 110%. Our Canadian rep for them is fucking extraordinary and great to deal with. You can order direct off the site (I think), or, call my shop and we can hook you up. If you order them from us after I get back from school in early April, I could ship them to you or I could bring them to you in July when I come up.

(PS, sorry for the sales pitch, gotta plug the little shop. Long story short, buy them, you'll love 'em)

I'ma order some of them when I have money.

Usually I wear these $20 combat pants from wal-mart with Kevlar pads stitched into the knees and hips
But I'd rather have full kevlar.
