Product Description


Designed for the 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 armor and durable, triple layer construction.

Nearly invisible outseam zippers open to reveal knee armor pockets, allowing quick fitting or removal of optional TF3 impact armor (sold separately at right or below), while wearing the pants. Remove the armor in seconds once you arrive at work and these khakis look, feel and function like standard-issue office wear.

Triple layer knee and seat areas include a hidden 500D Cordura middle layer enhanced abrasion resistance combines with an additional inner cotton liner for comfort. Ride to work, remove the pads, work all day and quickly install pads again for the ride home. Perfect protection for everyday, around-town riding. Machine washable. 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.

No Knee ArmorReview by Bud
I was very disappointed when I received my Protekt Khakis that they did not come with the knee armor. Nothing states that they don't in the product description online, but plenty is written about how convenient they are when using the knee armor. Can you fix your website to clearly state that knee armor is not included? I wanted to use them this week and now I have to wait another week. (Posted on 7/14/15)
Protekt Khaki reviewReview by John
I am 6'3" 190lbs with 34" waist and at least 34" inseam. The 34x36 fit great. The knee protector pockets still need to be lowered by about 4 inches. May have a seamstress rework them. the bottom of the pad just covers the knee cap when riding. Not sure how these change in fit with washing yet. They seem adequate for protecting at low speed crashes and for wearing under Dariens. Probably better than mesh pants for hot weather in terms of protection and off the bike appearances. Must tuck into tall boots as they are not boot cut. (Posted on 6/19/15)
6/16/15Review by Alex
Fit exactly like Docker's D3 (classic fit, try on a pair in a store if you want to know what the Aero will fit like), look great in the office. Currently own 2 pair. Best (docker-like) fit I've found and I've tried all of the Kevlar pants out there that have the inseam I need (36").
Haven't washed them yet, so can't comment on shrinkage or fit after wash.

-knee pocket needs to be about 6" lower (shift the entire pocket down)
-rear pockets are too shallow to be useful, almost fit a wallet in there, smartphone no way (just carrying for walking....still not happening).
-more colors would be nice, but the current color does what I need

Aerostich Protekt KhakisReview by John
Great pants, except . . . the rear pockets are uselessly too small for carrying a bill fold. I understand this is being resolved BUT before you order I would advise you too ask. Replacement of mine was not offered - I did not request either as they are very comfortable riding pants of which I'm otherwise very pleased. (Posted on 6/8/15)
Protekt KhakisReview by JOHN
I am delighted with the pants - very comfortable and they look good. The zip for the knee pads is very discreet, and the pads are very easy to insert. I often have to attend concerts and slightly posh events in the city, and these (with the pads removed!) are absolutely fine! I agree with the other reviewer who suggested additional colours - I'd buy an additional pair in dark green or maroon (or dark blue). (Posted on 6/8/15)
Only One ComplaintReview by Tom in Iowa
Been riding to work in these for only a couple of weeks, so I cannot comment on durability or crash-worthiness. But these are the most comfortable and best fitting motorcycle pants I have tried.

So what is my complaint? Only one color - please consider making these in black, gray, dark blue, dark green.... (Posted on 5/13/15)
GrrreatReview by Bob
These are really great- just like regular trousers, the really are the best- better than jeans (Posted on 2/4/15)
Ride more...Review by Doug
Really great product. Have owned other riding jeans and these are the best so far. Quick knee pad removal is the best part.
Much more convenient than over pants means I'll ride more to work more often and run more errands on the bike. These fit true to size and look good enough not to be out of place.
Cons: fabric looks protective, but it's not Kevlar, no hip pad, not exactly cheap
Pros: easy knee pads, look better than any other MC pants, comfortable, spend more time on the bike (Posted on 7/26/14)
Sizes!Review by Schorsch Meier
All thin folk are not short.
All tall folk are not chubby.
Why no sizes for tall, slender riders?
(Same issue with your Arborwear pants - I buy 32-36 "tree-climber" pants from Arborwear but I can not get your cleverly improved version in my size) (Posted on 11/26/13)
Great pants, but...Review by Thunderbird
These are really well made, stylish pants. I ordered the size I wear in Dockers and as pants, they fit perfectly. My complaint is that the knee pads sit too high when I'm in riding position on my bike. I ride in an upright stance - not especially bent over - and my proportions are pretty normal. I know that Aerostich fixed this problem with the jeans, but they haven't on the khakis. I've worn them on my bike a few times, so now I can't return them and the friendly operator at customer service basically told me I must have odd proportions, because no one else has complained. So I suppose the folks at Aerostich think that their customers for khakis are shaped differently than their customers for jeans? I'd order a few pairs and wear them every day if they could fix this.

Aerostich Protekt Riding Khakis

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.
