Product Description


Clean, simple, old school straight leg blue jeans...with a great trick: TF3 Impact armor-holding pockets at the knees (sold separately), accessed via a hidden zipper. Armor is removed or replaced in seconds, easily, while wearing the pants. All the rest is classic denim jean spec., with fit and cut similar to Levi's 501s.

Specifically, these are carefully sewn of unwashed dark blue 100% cotton 14 oz denim fabric, which is a bit heavier-duty than the more common 10-12 oz denim, but it still shrinks-to-a-custom-fit after a wash or two, which makes these pants extra comfortable and wear a lot longer.

For protektion there are three generous hidden areas of abrasion resistant Breathable-Waterproof HT 500D Nylon (…as used in many Aerostich suits) located at the seat and knees. For ‘commando’ comfort this extra-abrasion-resistant fabric is backed by soft 100% cotton.

As you’d expect there are five traditional pockets, five belt loops and a reliable metal fly zipper, too. But as you wouldn’t expect, the hidden seat-protective breathable-waterproof abrasion layer means you can sit on a freshly rain-wetted saddle and not get a wet butt. Nice!

The optional knee armor (sold separately at right or below) is positioned in the correct location when riding, and when you’re off the bike it's comfortably flexible and easily removable.

Stitching is double and triple wherever needed, and a crotch gusset provides extra ease and comfort that’s great when mounting up and also as you move around in the saddle.

Fit, quality and protection that’s quick, easy and comfortable. They’ll quickly become your favorite jeans, both on and off your bike. Made here in America. Size 32–30, 32–32, 32-34, 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. Choose Black or Blue. Made in USA

Editorial Review, Gear Review Aerostich Protekt Jeans, Bike-urious
When I get to work I pull the pads out sitting at my desk. When it’s time to go home, the pads go right back in - two seconds - and I’m riding.” - Mr. Subjective 9/09

Thigh pads vs knee padsReview by ST1300
I ordered pants longer than street jeans to be certain of boot top coverage but on a moderately forward leaning ST1300 the knee pads are well above knee and afford no protection. Might be ok for cruisers? (Posted on 6/20/10)
Another "good, but"Review by Art
I agree with two other reviewers that the knee pads aren't positioned well. Mine protect my thighs quite well, but don't quite make it to what they are supposed to protect. The pants fit very well, and the comfort of the gusseted crotch is quite welcome. I really like these pants, but do wish the knee pads were better placed. (Posted on 5/17/10)
good but...Review by tim in maine
Good quality comfortable jeans but the knee pads are a little high for me (inseam 32, ordered 34 to overcome riding up over boot tops). Just barely cover knee - most of pad is just above knee when riding. Needed the extra length, so maybe 32 inseam would place pads just right. Something to consider when ordering.. (Posted on 5/6/10)
Very Utilitarian Review by Brad
These Jeans are as described . They look a little funky when walking around ( baggy and the knee pads stick out at the sides) but I don"t care .I do need to pull them down when riding so they cover my knees.Very well made.Overall good local riding protection. (Posted on 4/24/10)
Just As Advertised!Review by Sal
Love them! Fit is great. I wear a size 34/30, that's what I ordered and they are right on target. Heavy enough to provide decent protection and still be comfortable. Perfect for short commutes and day rides in good weather. I still wear the Dariens for longer trips. I've worn them to work for two days now and have no complaints. Highly recommend.

Love them!Review by Scott
I've been looking for something like this for a while. I had Draggin' Jeans but for some reason they never quite felt right. These feel great! The knee pads are perfectly placed for me (30 inseam). I normally wear a 44 waist and the 42 just barely fits me, so they may run a little large. Very comfortable. Obviously not the protection you would get with full-on riding pants (no hip pads, for instance), but you have knee armor and the heavy denim and double-layering in the seat and knees should help in a get-off. I wouldn't choose these for long-distance and/or high speed riding because you'd want full protection plus some weatherproofing, but for city riding or casual weekend rides these are perfect and you can walk into a store or cafe without looking like an alien.

Worth the asking priceReview by Doug
These are very well made jeans, but could use an adjustment to the knee pad location. When installed the pads on my pair gave no protection to my knee, they were more like an air scoop cause the padding could not reach over my knee and bend to the radius of my knee, good protection to my thigh though. Great looking riding or just every day jeans i'll buy another pair. Love the made in the USA clothing, the hip pocket works great for my cell phone. Hard to find pant made this well, worth the asking price. (Posted on 11/29/09)
