Default Draggin Jeans

Well I went and bought me 2 pair before I left on vacation a few weeks ago. Let me say they got here in a hurry.

They don't look too different than regular jeans. You order by your size. I ordered 32X32 and they are about a 33" inseam which is good because it keeps them from riding up too much when seated on the bike.

The are just a bit more loose than my levis are which helps prevent pinching on the bike. They are warmer too. That is good and bad for obvious reasons. I did notice that they don't let as much engine heat get to my legs as regular jeans either.

Hope I never need the crash protection but it nice knowing I have it if I ever do. If you're thinking about buying some I would recommend it.

Similar story here. Got my Draggin Jeans before my 4th of July trip. Showed up within a week.

A little looser than the 501s I normally wear, but not bad. They're a little warmer but I was OK even up into the 90s during my trip. Very comfy.

I'm glad I purchased.

I recently ordered a pair of Diamond Gussett "defender series" motorcycle jeans. They have the kevlar sewn in all the essential places that one would expect. Will provide a review when received and tested.

I think you saved a little coin in the process.

Love my Draggins! They last well also... my latest two pair get worn 5-7 times a week. Sometimes 2-3 hrs, sometimes all day.

Just remember guys... ultraviolet light denatures the dyneema!

That means never inside out when drying... my wife dries ours in the shade and not inside out... dont wanna take any chances!

They are a quality item Made in Australia not china! They may be made in the USA under licence now, pretty sure still Aussie made.

I have no idea what this means:

Are you saying that after you machine wash them that it's better to let them air dry in the shade than to turn them inside out and put them in the dryer? If so, I agree. I would never put any $100+ dollar pair of jeans in the dryer. Inside out or not...

Diamond Gussett is made in the USA and isn't that one reason we ride a Victory? As for price Gussett is running a 20% off special right now, code 25000, I think that makes them cheaper than the Draggin Jeans I saw on their site.

Right on the front page of the Draggin Jeans website it says Made in the USA. And yes that is certainly one of the reasons I ride Victory!

You are right, previous poster said Australia. Should have checked first I guess.
