Rokker Original Raw Jeans
Great Vintage Style !! Best alternative to Leather Chaps plus Armor
Fist off. YES!!! This is a lot of clams to lay down for a pair of riding jeans. But the quality, comfort, and style speak volumes. Plus its your hide on the road, and can't put a price on that if you unfortunately take a fall. Ok as for sizing its true to size. I normally wear 38 x 34 so i ordered 38 x 36. now keep in mind if you do wash them they will in time become a 37 just like any good denim will do. So go easy on the beer fellas. I cuff my jeans and these bad boys look good with a vintage 501 red line look. As for slide protection I can not report and I do not wish to report since i have not fell in them. Wind and water protection on the other hand I have first hand experience with them. I just rode over 700 miles this past weekend, and these bad boys held up great in the environment. I hit a storm with a heavy down fall and my legs were kept dry. I didn't need my rain gear. didn't feel the need to. If the water didn't let up after 30 minutes I would have gone for the gear even if I didn't feel wet. Keep in mind I use a Rukka base layer as well. Even though the pants are comfortable with out a base layer, I highly recommend for added comfort and thermal and wicking properties. As for wind well it was a rough ride home and the wind was a factor. The pants held up great against the wind. This is why i wrote this as a great alternative to leather chaps. temps ranged from 80 degrees to low 50s no discomfort at all. If your capable of this purchase you will not be disappointed .

Great looking jeans, even better protection
This is an investment worth making. Before these, I'd been relying on a pair of Maple Jeans, which are the best protection money can buy but no longer in production. I found the Rokkers to be made from superior quality materials, fit is spot on, and they look great (except for the giant ROKKER logo in the exterior waist band, which can be covered up with a belt). I haven't yet tested these in a crash. But if they hold up even half as well as my Maple Jeans did in a crash, then I have no concerns about durability/protection. If you can drop several hundred on these jeans, it's worth every penny for peace of mind.

Had to return them
I am 5'11 155 pounds 30" waist and wear 30/32 in all my jeans. fallowing the description I went to a lewis store and tryed a 501 size 30/32 to get a idea before placing a order. so I got a 30/34 thanks Revzilla shipping was fast. they arrived and first impression right out from the box it's the quality of the product very very well made in all aspect. Now when you gonna take them in your hands you are going to realized how heavy they are and they should be considering all the fabric they include.I wear a Dainese D1 kevlar for the past 2 years and it's a pretty thick pair and I am getting hot wearing them. but nothing to compare with the Rokker. so I put them on and realized imediately it's to baggy for me and specially around my waist looks like a size to big. I am not sure if I will order a size smaller as I am located in Miami. I think they gonna be way to hot for me down here, today it's 90 degrees with 80 humidity :( but if you are located in a state where you get all season that will be the one to get.

I've had these jeans for six months and have ridden in extreme heat (100 degrees) and the cold (40 degrees). Surprisingly, I didn't feel hot or get sweaty in the summer and (with the aid of a pair of Under Armour thermals) haven't felt cold in lower temps.
The jeans are comfortable and stylish enough that I don't mind wearing them when I'm not riding. Plus, the optional knee pads can be worn without others noticing.
The only criticisms I have are:
1) The velcro material inside the jean that the optional knee pads stick to when inserted gradually pulls away from the jean. Therefore, the pads don't stay in the desired position very well after a few wears. After a couple of months, using the pads is nearly impossible.
2) I waited six months to wash the jeans per advice from Revzilla. I was hoping the jeans would lose their 'raw' look over time or upon their first wash but they're still pretty dark (which I suppose is good news if you prefer the raw look.)
Aside from that, the jeans seems to be made extremely well, e.g. no loose threads or signs of wear after six months and 4,500 miles on the bike).

Im totally satisfied with this jean.
It looks just like regular jeans even with knee protector.
Im a asian guy and not tall, so the shortest length is 34 means too long for me. But if you have good alteration service near you, you can fix it like me.
It is heavy and thick, but Im ok with it for my own safety.
I ride Ducati 899 Panigale matt wht and first couple of times I rode it, I found blueish mark on fuel tank which is from, obviously, my jeans and cleaned with wet tissue. But after then it haven't happened again.
And the orange knee protector is comfortable but those cant hold position with two tiny velcro, so I stitched on the pocket and easily fixed.

Bought them & unfortunately had to return them
I did not even have a chance to ride wit them. My waist is usually 34 - 36 depending on the brand, so I purchased 36x36. I am 6'3, 215 pounds, with slightly larger legs - calve muscles and they were just to tight in the legs for me. I worked with George A. and he very helpful in returning them and recommending other pairs of jeans. Rokker Jeans are a very premium product and I would love to have them. George did recommended either Dainese or Alpinestars that may have fit me better. I am waiting to see if Revzilla will get the other Rokker jeans type offered by the company that be more like bootleg cut.

I'll buy another pair
Stats: 5'10 - 5'11, 210lbs. I bought 34x34, fits a 'little' snug on waist but I'm a 'little' fat too. Overall a great pair of jeans with abrasion protection, and also knee protectors which is what I wanted. Protectors are kind of a pain to fit properly, but once set you shouldn't need to mess with them. I've only worn them out riding once, weather was dry and temp about 60F. Got up to freeway speeds and didn't notice any chill factor on legs. If I had a minor complaint, it would be the size of the front pockets. They are on the small side and thus harder to put my big mitts into. I will definitely look into buying another pair.
Btw ZLA, let's see more of the Rokker product line (please)!
