For those who want an alternative to to jeans but something not as heavy a riding pants, there has always been the Draggin' Jeans (http://www.dragginjeans.com/), the Aerostich Arborwear pants (http://www.aerostich.com/catalog/US/Aerostich-Arborwear-Gusseted-Canvas-Pants-p-16909.html) (I like mine) or the non-Aerostich Arborwear (http://www.arborwear.com/) pants, Duluth Trading (http://www.duluthtrading.com/) has some new Road Hog jeans (http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/mens/mens_pants/64130.aspx?src=T26WE4A3) made with Kevlar to go along with their Fire Hose line of pants (http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/mens/mens_pants/firehose_pants/firehose_pants.aspx).

The Brits have their version of draggin' jeans. They're a bit more expensive but I think they have more kevlar.

Just another choice for you.

I really like my Draggin jeans. The only problem I have had is that on hot days the kevlar will irritate by backside if I am putting in a bunch of miles. I think I found the solution by wearing underarmor sliding shorts and avoiding anything cotton.

That's just what I found on Knee Draggers.

I had a pair of Draggin' Jeans years ago. They fit well and the extra protection was appreciated. I think their addition of optional armor is a good thing. I like the Arborwear jeans, I'd get the knee pads also. Gotta be better than just jeans (which I'm guilty of wearing while riding in town :roll: )

got a really good review on WebBikeWorld. They seem to be cheaper than the others as well.
