Scorpion Covert Jeans
Great safety jeans that look normal
They look & feel just like normal jeans. Well, more like flannel-lined jeans as they do get a little warm wearing off the bike. For the definite added protection, the cost, and the look, I couldn't recommend a better pair than the scorpion. Probably going to get another pair for the summer commute.

Waste sizing is spot on and they look and feel like regular jeans.
The jeans look and feel great. I wear a size 36 in Levi jeans and ordered a size 36 - perfect fit around the waist. The jeans are very long however so I'll need to have them hemmed. I've worn them 3 times now and have no complaints :)

Great price for amount of protection, slightly large.
Haven't gone down in these so cannot comment on the reliability. I am normally a 36-38 waist (5'11" 210) depending on the brand. I tried this on in a 36 and they were way too tight but just in the waist. I got a 38 and they are way too loose. They say not to wash, I assume so they do not shrink too much. So I washed them twice in hot water so they would shrink up a bit. This worked pretty good, they fit much better now, a little baggy in the legs. They are also long which is to be expected, I had my wife hem them and they are all good. The placement of the knee pockets is strange, sits very high on your knee, unlike most overpants where the pads sit way too low. They are heavy jeans so being too big makes them hard to keep them up have to ratchet my belt real tight, but with the protection thats what you get. I wear these if I need to get off my bike and walk around etc. for commuting its just easier to where overpants. But all in all I am happy with the purchase at this price.

Bang for buck!
Bought these jeans and have to say they are mighty comfortable. However the zipper did break open from them but that's mostly my fault as I was trying to adjust my kneepads with the pants on. I am a size 32 waist in all my jeans and this was no different. The fit is definitely a big baggy/relaxed. But from waist to shins it is lined with Kevlar. Unfortunately, shins downwards on the inside is lined with this mesh that catches onto the velcro of my boots - no worries though. Also, these jeans definitely need to get hemmed (my tailor charged a bit extra due to the difficulty of the mesh/kevlar material).

Did it right..No regrets.
Amazed that these riding jeans were so like my favorite regular jeans, 505's in 33/30, in fit, style and general comfort. The size 34's were not too loose, not too tight, waist not too low, crotch not too loose or tight. A classic fit with slightly bootcut lower legs. All the things I was worried about are just not there. Guess my only wish would be for a lighter stonewash blue, but the dark is not bad. Another plus to me is the denim is not the ring-spun type with the vertical weaving striations as on many other brands, just the good ol' standard denim that us older guys like. After having them hemmed, they are perfect. I avoided the often mentioned knee armor complaint as I wear my B--- Armor pants under these as I did with my 505's before, but now with road rash protection. These are warm, but not overly so and to be expected with the somewhat heavier materials. Oh, and for washing info, see the offical Kevlar website page. Mainly just avoid bleach and softener and tumble low or air dry. Again, Zilla delivered the goods and fast too. No regrets.

Measure your waist before you buy these jeans
Do not rely on the size of your street pants. I fit easily into 34/30 Dockers and Levis but the 34/32 Scorpions I received were so SKIN FREAKING TIGHT around the waist, a**, and thighs they were immediately returned. Then, I got out the tape measure and found out that, hrm, I'm at least 36" around the waist just below the belly button where they say to measure. Otherwise, it's a sturdy, stretchy, very BLUE blue jean. The stitching is discrete by riding jean standards. No yellow stitching on the leg at all except vertically along the inside. The fabric feels a little sticky out of the box, I guess because of all the Kevlar fiber. Hope that goes away with washing. Obviously, I haven't ridden with these jeans, but after trying them on, my impression is that they will be warmer than even heavy cotton denim.
I was looking for something with more protection than my dockers that I could conceivably wear in the office. For weekend riding I'm hoping to fit these (with the optional knee pads) over armored riding shorts and feel safe as houses. I chose the Scorpion Covert Jeans because looked like they'd meet my needs and because the price was right.
Bottom line: I re-ordered in 36/32 after all of this, so I'll give them a qualified thumbs up. Sure wish they came in black though.

Scorpion hit a home run with these
Best part of the jeans is when you unzip the fly you see "Get Stung" :)
They feel great and are very "covert" with the hip and knee armor. Too bad it's not included with the price but it makes these jeans closer to 169 than 119. The Sas-tech armor actually is in the right place for my knees. It seems like decent armor and being in the right spot is spot on.
I wear a slim fit 32 x 32 Wrangler jean and these fit me perfectly. I thought they were too long at first but I did a quick wash and put in the armor and they look great with my western boots.
With my Sidi Canyons the legs seem a bit too small but workable.
Even with armor in no one can tell your wearing motoprotective pants.
The kevlar is very comfortable compared to my Draggin Jeans....very soft feeling pants.
They are "abrasion level 3" Scorpion rates the abrasion resistance of its products by its so-called “Abradium Abrasion Scale,” which ranges from level four (racing protection) to level two (street use). They are not like a pair of Motoport mesh kevlar street jean but sure a lot better than my 501's......They are really meant for a casual attempt at AGATT like to go to work and not look like a space ranger.
Highly worth the money and Revzilla ships fast.

They are great!!
They fit perfectly and look awesome. I was looking for some jeans that didn't look like cargo with all the stiches everywhere in a good price. The quality is good, the size is right and they are pretty cheap compare to other brands
