OK, so I've been looking for a pair of protective riding jeans ever since I laid down my Vulcan 3 years ago. Helmet, jacket, gloves, and boots did what they were supposed to do but my Levi's let me down protection wise. Most of the riding jeans I have found are designed for the much younger crowd - too baggy, too much styling detail, and they look like bike gear. How about jeans that look like plain levi or lee jeans that protect? Enter BILT Ironworkers. These are a relaxed (not loose) fit in a dark wash finish. There are pockets for armor in the knees (included) and even on the hips. They feel comfortable and look nice without being "too over the top." Now the not so good - the included knee armor is flat, not shaped. This makes the knees bulge to the side when standing. Also where the Kevlar is attached to the pants there is contrasting detail stitching on the face of the jeans. As a 50+ year old cruiser rider a more stealthy, low profile look would be more welcome. Because the jeans are a dark wash I was able to take a sharpie permanent fine point marker to the baby blue stitching on the front and back of the legs, leaving the traditional orange side seam stiching. Now they look more like plain jeans. Also the articulated knee (more fabric on the outside)is not stalthy enough - put it on the inside for protection, but don't emphasize it on the outside. Back pockets are nice and plain without any detail embelishment. Also Kevlar is a 70/30% mix of Kevlar and polyester. I don't know if this will affect the protection part but every other brand I have seen are 100% Kevlar. As a shorter rider a shorter inseam option would be appreciated as well. All in all, if you need a protective riding jean that looks more like a basic street wear jean, grab a sharpie and your wallet - these may be okay for you. They are appropriately priced when on sale.

I gave these pants the ultimate test courtesy of a deer last week and I DO NOT consider these jeans to be "serious" protective gear. I know my road rash would've been much worse in regular jeans but the worst of it was in the knee area. The CE padding was riding too high in the pant to be of any use during the slide and at 30 MPH or so, I went through all three layers of Kevlar blend fabric in the impact area and I still had to give myself the dreaded "rock-and-tar-scrub" in the tub. Stay out of the canyons and stick to the short trips in these jeans.

Comments about BILT IRON WORKERS Steel Motorcycle Jeans:

Ok, nice overall street jean for safety and style. Waist fits great and rides where you want it on your hips even in a full tucked position. Only few down falls: length is a little short in riding position (tall boots negate this) and the knee armor moves to the inside when you get into your lean angle. Simple fix (where rs tachi CE rated knee guards under pants and take out the armor in jeans)

Comments about BILT IRON WORKERS Steel Motorcycle Jeans:

I've been riding for years with regular jeans - always avoided motorcycle pants due to the usually high price. These are a great deal, and are much higher quality than you'd expect for the price.

They have all the standard features of motorcycle pants - knee pads, areas reinforced with kevlar, etc. I've found riding is much more comfortable with these, and the cut fits nicely over my boots.

The only con I've found so far is that the zipper has a tendency to come down during a long ride - so make sure you check yourself once you get off the bike!

Do yourself a favor and get a pair of these pants.

    Great pants for the money. Got them on sale and wear them everytime I ride. They dont look to bad as jeans as far as style and the kevlar is nice in case of a fall for your daily cruising. Not recommended for any type of track or high speed.
