These pants will help you be more productive, work happier and ride more, no kidding. Designed for the urban commuter, these highly constructed, American made, 100% Cotton twill khaki pants are equally at home in the office, out on the town or riding down the road, thanks to the hidden knee pad pockets and durable, triple layer construction. Concealed outseam knee zippers open to reveal knee pad pockets, allowing easy fitting or removal of TF3 impact armor, while wearing the pants. The optional TF armor knee pads are soft and flexible until impact when they instantly stiffen to absorb energy. Remove the pads in seconds once you arrive at work and these relaxed fit khaki pants look and function like standard-issue office wear. A triple layer knee and seat area include a 200D Cordura middle layer combined with an additional inner cotton liner for enhanced abrasion resistance, with double and triple stitched areas for increased durability. Ride to work, remove the pads, work all day and quickly install pads again for the ride home. Innovative design for real-world function and protection for everyday, around-town riding. Machine washable. Made in USA. Patent applied for. 32–30, 32–32, 34–30, 34–32, 34–34, 34-36, 36–30, 36–32, 36–34, 36-36, 38–30, 38–32, 38–34, 38-36, 40–30, 40–32, 40–34, 40-36, 42–30, 42–32.

Your Favorite New Pants.

I've always wanted a pair of pants like these to wear into work on warm days under nothing but a button-down shirt and Darien Light jacket. Something that looked exactly like the khaki 'Dockers®' street pants I usually wear under a Roadcrafter. Comfortable pants (especially on hotter days) that would provide semi-decent abrasion protection in case of a crash. Pants with big protective knee pads that would go in and out very fast...while sitting right at my desk. A pair of pants that were all-day comfortable at work worn with a shirt and sometimes even a tie. Maybe a sport coat, too. Occasionally.

So we modified several pairs of actual ‘Levi's Dockers®,’ making small adjustments and changes to each pair. Eventually, voila — we had some very plain-looking khaki pants that were comfortable all day at work, and for riding, and were not jeans.

Getting all of this correct took us about a year, squeezed between other work and projects. Then finding someone in the USA with this type of pant-making experience — someone to produce a nicely sewn final version — took another year. But finally it all came together.

I'd wanted a pair of pants exactly like this for more than ten years. Everyday wearing pants that were comfortable commuting, reasonably protective, and that looked ok at work.

These are those pants.
