Scorpion Covert Jeans
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

Great for Cold Weather Riding
In follow-up to an earlier review where I commented that I expected the pants to be good in cold weather, they are. I ride all year in the Dallas, TX area, commuting to work. At or above freezing, the pants work fine for my 8.5 mile commute and don't look like motorcycle jeans. Below freezing, normal pants and overpants work better. I set Air Flow at medium, because in the cold, generous air flow is not preferred.
I have two pair of Covert jeans and expect to buy more. Great value for the price.

Great in some ways, OK in others.
Got these because I wanted something to hold me over until I could buy some nice leathers. They feel well made with good materials. The denim is thicker than typical jeans these days and it has the Kevlar material, which is why I bought them.
Only real downside is they are sort of baggie, so maybe not too fashionable depending on what your style is.
The other thing is the knee pads which I bought later. When standing they are in the perfect position but seated they basically ride up on my quads and no longer cover my knees at all. So that feels quite awkward and I figure you have about a 20% chance that they might make it back down to your knees in the event of a crash.
So don't waste your money on putting the knee pads in these, better to get some strap ons.

Great fit and style
I tried other Kevlar jeans, but found them to be too tight or too baggy. The Scorpion jeans fit true to size.

It is certainly an excellent motorcycle jean With The look and style of a good pair of regular jeans , but with the benefits of many more expensive ones my new favorite jeans

Untested but Confident
As with most protective gear, we all hope for it to go untested as long as possible.
I was looking for a pair of riding jeans that didn't look like riding jeans at all and Scorpion was the only one to deliver for a reasonable price. The secret to their stealth is the fact that they did a full liner of combined Kevlar and mesh. With this full liner there was no need to stitch the Kevlar to the denim mid leg.
The jeans have a nice, slim fit that is comfortable for riding and looks good off the bike. If I had any comments about the fitment, I'd ask for a boot cut. I think it goes without saying that enough of riding community wears boots that it would be good offering to riders.
The only uncomfortable experience I had with the jeans is that the velcro for the kneepad pocket had sharp corners that would scratch my knees when riding. I just trimmed off the corners, making sure not to clip the stitching, and everything is fine now.

+ They look like dark wash jeans
+ They wear almost like a regular (though heavy) pair o' jeans
+ Available SAS-Tec armor in the knees
+ A square kilometer of kevlar
+ Thanks to the mesh, they don't stick when it's hot
+ Cheapest pair of kevlar-jeans I've seen
- Not quite mom jeans, but not fashionable
- SAS-Tec armor doesn't come stock (and can be hard to get)
- How do you hem jeans with mesh inside?
- There are better looking alternatives with slightly less protection
Overall: Wearing them is certainly better than wearing those jeans you bought at the thrift shop. Save the money you've been spending on fair-trade organic espresso shots and get yourself a pair.
