Scorpion Covert Jeans
Biggest danger is wearing them out when I'm not riding!
These pants are so much more comfortable than I expected them to be. They were slightly large on me, but not overly so. My only complaint is that the velcro on my boots sometimes catches the inside, but it's rare, and it only is an issue when taking the pants off... definitely not a big deal.

These jeans fit and feel fantastic
This is the second pair of kevlar jeans I have owned and by far the best. They look and fit like regular jeans but have a (completely hidden) protective layer of kevlar. An inner mesh layer keeps the kevlar from making direct contact with your skin and this makes all the difference in comfort. I highly recommend this product.

Best Riding Jeans for the Buck - With a Few Caveats
I ride daily and don't like the hassle of changing suits for work. I needed an all-day comfortable pair of denim to cover the less rash-resistant organs of my body. One that didn't look like Dickies, one that fit like classic Levi 506.
Options like Draggin Jeans or Dianese D6 promised the look but not the price, so the Scorpion Covert won out.
My pair arrived with the rear leather patch loose and missing stitches, random strings lined the sides as if the seamstress didn't care to tie off the loose ends. The armor pockets lining the inside of the jeans scratched my legs as I walked. Already a bad portent.
Overlooking the shoddy finish, these jeans fit perfectly on my 32x32 figure. After wearing them for the first day, I didn't feel overheated, weighed down or uncomfortable. Almost like my favorite set of 506.
After a few days of wearing and washing I haven't noticed any unusual wear and I can tell these will last for a long while yet.
Perhaps the final product is better on the others jeans, but if you don't mind these minor defects, these are a robust pair or full kevlar protection that should keep your precious skin feeling save and comfortable.

Overall great pants and a good deal
I had previously ordered a different brand of Kevlar jeans and returned them because they were huge. These jeans fit well, like regular jeans. They do run a little small, but seem to have stretched a little overtime to make them more comfortable. I am 6' 1" and about 180 lbs and wear a size 33 in waist and 34" length and bought the size 32 jeans. These have worked and are long enough in casual shoes while walking around and high boots while riding, but I would prefer a long version of the pants if wearing lower boots. I would probably buy the size 34 if I purchased another set just because the hip area is pretty tight. The manufacturer says not to dry them, but unless your hanging them out in the sun, they get moldy air drying inside. So I have dried them on low and not had any issues that I know of. They really feel like quality thick jean material. I have not tried the knee pads so I can't speak to the fit of those. The color is fading a little, but they were very dark. It would be nice if they had some other colors/ variations in the color so that they weren't solid. Overall they seem like a great jean and have held up well after multiple rides and washes.

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.

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!
