Scorpion Covert Jeans
Protective jeans that don't LOOK like protective jeans
The fit is slightly small but these are the least unstylish riding jeans I've seen, they provide good abrasion protection with more kevlar than many of their competitors and, though small have pockets for him and knee protection already sewn in.

Great overall product, highly recommended.
I was looking for a pair of riding jeans for daily commuting. These appeared to fit the bill and upon receiving them I knew I would be happy. They are very well built and heavy duty. My only concern (knowing going into buying reinforced jeans) was the lack of airflow. I was suprised that they aren't as hot as I expected them to be, at least no more than normal jeans.
I also love them because they actually fit me. I am a weight lifter with odd sizes at 5'8", 190 pounds with 34" waist. These worked perfectly.
I love that they have pockets to add knee pads if desired and that the kevlar is full circumfrence from the waist to below the knee with mesh continuing from the kevlar end to the bottom of the pant leg.

If Tony Stark wears jeans, these are the ones he wears!
First let me say, these are some of the best jeans I have ever owned regardless of the PPG aspect. They are comfortable, have a decent amount of room in all of the important areas, and are built to withstand some serious usage.
There are pockets for armor all over the interior, but unlike my jacket, I never feel them there. The kevlar lining is very generous and is in abundance in all of the areas that would make contact with the road.
I feel naked without them. They don't feel weird, look weird, or cheap. They are very much a value for the money, I only wish they made them in black.
This is a must buy for anyone who likes to not look like a spaceman, but likes the protection of a space suit.

Scorpio Covert Jeans
Revzilla shipping was fast. These jeans fit as well and are as comfortable as some of my best regular 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.
