Scorpion Covert Jeans
Great first riding jeans
These are my first pair of riding jeans. The color is a very dark blue. The fit in the waist is very close to my regular jeans (32 waist) and the appearance of the jeans is that of regular jeans without extra seams. The length is as expected for 32s. I have worn the jeans on a few rides thus far, and they have been comfortable on and off the bike. I have not yet worn the jeans with hip or knee armor so cannot comment on the fit with the armor in place. Price was hard to beat when compared to other jeans with similar features.

9 out of 10
Style is right on the money ! I can wear them going to a meeting with a shirt and tie and I can wear them on a ride with my Dianese leather jacket.
I do have to say that the knee pads DO NOT FIT WHERE THEY SHOULD. However a good tailor can fix that for cheap.
Great style, couldn't have been a better fit if the were tailor made. I wear a 34/34 and I got the 34. PERFECT FIT.
Great feel. And the Kevlar seems to be in great coverage.
Might just get a second pair to have.

Very satisfied with the jeans
Description, features, and delivery were all spot on, as usual. Very happy with the purchase, would recommend to others.

Great protective jeans.
I've got quite a few days of riding in these now and most of them in hot weather. The Kevlar in them is thicker than any other jeans I've had. That is a very good thing, but it comes at a price - they are pretty hot in the days of Summer. And it's really not all that bad, as long as you keep moving. They don't look like obvious riding jeans either - they look like a nice classy pair of jeans. No tell tale stitching on the legs. They look great and seem to have more Kevlar than normal. I'll pick up another pair when these start looking old. Two thumbs up!

Affordable and awesome bang for the buck but not perfect.
You get a lot of features for the price point - kevlar and hip and knee pockets for armor in a design that is classic and looks like normal jeans.
It's not the most protective pair of motorcycle denim out there - the kevlar is not nearly as thick as Drakyo's denim. But it has pockets for armor. I got a pair of Scorpion SAS-TEC armor and they're great! But the knee pockets are a bit big for the armor, so they flop around on my knees. I used fabric velcro inside the pocket to restrict the movement of the knee armor and to keep them in the proper place for my knees. This may or may not be needed depending on your body type.
Overall, these are a great buy as long as you understand the limitation of what they offer. I would recommend them for casual riding.

They fit and look like normal jeans. They are noticibly heavier than levy's but a small price for protection. Just wish they were blue.
They are noticeably heavier than Levi's but a small price for protection. Just wish they were more blue than black. However I am sure many prefer black. While I haven't tested the Kevlar yet, I'm convinced this is far and away - the best bang for the buck.

I was surprised how well they fit after reading some reviews - I typically wear a 30 x 32 so ordered 32 x 32 expecting them to need hemmed - they fit perfectly when sitting. Not too baggy and not too restrictive.

Perfect option if looking for a regular looking jean
I was drawn to these because they're one of the only normal looking pair of Kevlar jeans. No stitching in strange places, no big loud logos, just classic looking jeans.
They have good coverage with the Kevlar and just feel really solid in general.
My one gripe is with the pockets for the knee protectors. I got the D3O pads and they rarely seem to sit right on my knees. They usually end up a bit high or off to one side. Also the pockets open to the bottom with just a Velcro closure, I've already had a pad make it's way out on its own (not while riding). I'm trying to work out a solution for this, but overall I do recomend them.
