Lean Angle Jeans

Anybody tried these jeans?

Fully lined - 100% Kevlar with Knee/Hip protection. They don't look too bad...

the creator used to be (maybe still is) part of the SV650 community. Nice guy. In terms of the price - and from the reviews i've read - they are good - but A* and others offer similar quality for less. Something to be said about supporting an American Entrepreneur though...

True. Yes, I saw them over at SVRider.

i have these - kevlar enforced in knees and seat - CE removable armor in the knees and shins. There are velcro hip pads that won't provide any kind of protection in a fall - i took these out.

Alpinestars Resist Riding Jeans - RevZilla

Lean Angles are lined head to toe with kevlar and i believe he uses forcefield armor (i've heard it's very good quality). If i'm accepting the risk of riding jeans - A* for me were enough and at a good price.

It's funny i just got a pair of AGV leather riding pants for the same price as the A* denim and they offer a lot more protection (obviously 2 very different riding applications) but crazy to see how expensive these jeans are getting.

Lean Angle Jeans look good but certainly not cheap.:(

The only worthwhile (budget) Kevlar Jeans with knee pads seem to be at Cycle Gear.....often on sale for $69., down from $99.

Wow, they are pricey but seem to have good protection. My waterproof overpants with full side zippers and more abrasion resistance is cheaper than that too!

I like how the AGV Corsica fit me- kind of slim and fitted. Yesterday I received jeans from a new-to-the-US company- Mottowear.
Pretty good fit for me and the inside is as cool as the outside. Very soft and comfortable denim. Sas-tech armor is a big plus.

I think for someone looking for something that screams motorcycle, fits well and has a decent price, S&S Rust & redemption is a great option- looks like a uglybros without the price tag.

Correct.

I'll spend more on a helmet because I know I don't have a sub $200 head -- I've got a $550 head whereas I'm told I don't have a $500 ass....they say I've got a $69 ass:p

Actually, I feel wearing MX knee/shin guards under kevlar lined jeans (if space allows) is a bit safer than just the jeans and knee pads. After having seen a friend being t-boned on his shin in front of me while I had the fox protectors under my jeans- I felt he really could have done with those instead of me. 4 clean breaks on that leg. Even a leather suit or a armored overpant would not have stopped that.

They look similar to scorpion pro covert jeans except the coverts don't have Kevlar in the calf section and to the cuff. But there around 100$cheaper.

I got a pair of dainese evo jeans . I haven't crashed em yet but I like em cuz my mx knee pads fit in the pockets . The hip protection lacks but I'll either have some larger pockets made or use armored shorts . it would be nice if they had a small elastic stretch v at bottom of the leg as it's difficult to get them around my sidi air boots .

I rode out to the Diamond Gussett Outlet twenty minutes from my house and picked up a pair of Kevlar Jeans. It is great to be able to support a local company, and I love the fit of their jeans. The front pocket has a velcro stay, as well as the cuffs. There is not an ample amount of Kevlar like my Draggin Jeans, but enough in the critical areas. Also, I love their heavy weight dark Lynchburg six pocket jeans. I am converting over from the grossly overpriced and poor quality Levi's to these jeans. Score one for the local guys.
