Sartso jeans

http://www.sartso.com/index.php

I picked up a pair I ordered from Bayside, and am very impressed. I decided on these cause most other Kevlar jeans look like something a rodeo cowboy would wear. Despite my country roots, I wanted more style to pose with the Starbucks crowd.

These are stylish, comfortable, and have a ton of Kevlar. They fit slightly bigger than a standard 36" jean, so they do appear to be a big baggie. We'll see if washing in hot water will shrink them a bit. The only downside is that they are warm, yet the layer Kevlar will do that.

I ordered the knee armor like a good rider should, yet to be honest I doubt I'll wear them. The design of jeans means the knee armor won't be where it needs to be when it needs to be anyways.

Definitely recommend these to anyone riding around in normal jeans. A little expensive, yet worth it!

$200 with the knee armor. Not cheap.

You can save a few $$$ by ordering from the US for $130 USD, yet you only save if there are no taxes/duty/shipping.

The ICON jeans are fine, not great. Style is alright, yet they have that stupid black expansion part at the knee that won't fit in with the Starbucks crowd. Much less Kevlar. The price is certainly better though.
