Question recommendations kevlar riding jeans?

Hi all,

I have some kevlar riding jeans. Waist is 36 and post retirement I have dropped to a 32 waist, so they are just falling off me. I am in the market for replacements.

May I ask for some recommendations please? Most of my Houston area summer riding is in high heat/humidity conditions. So, I prefer some airflow.

thanks!

Congratulations on going 36 to 32. Most people post retirement head the other way.

I'd highly recommend Diamond Gusset Defender jeans. Reasonably priced and good features.

I have been wearing Diamond Gusset jeans for years. I have a couple pair of their Kevlar Jeans for riding.

I have a pair of Draggin Jeans that have held up well and are comfortable for Texas summer riding.

Take a look at Brosh jeans. They were my preference before I out grew them.

Re: recommendations kevlar riding jeans?

I recently got the Klim Outrider and I love them. The legs are made to go over boots for the most part and I'm probably going to just have them taken up about 2 inches (plus lose some weight so I can just buy a smaller pair). They are also very affordable and extremely comfortable in decent amounts of heat. They're not an overpant, but come with the pads you can remove if you choose so you can wear them all day.

Glad they worked out for you. I'm still enjoying my six year old pairs.
