Speed and Strength Rage with the Machine Jeans
Reasonable Product Features-Price
The pants seem to be well made and quite reasonable for the price paid. The protection offered seems minimal and I wouldn't want to heavily rely on the built in knee pads. For what they are they seem fine.

Rage with the Machine
The jeans fit is a high waist jean that is a little snug so if your really a 36 trying to fit into a 34 ...just get the larger size waist. I did not realize the legs are pretty baggy on these and plan to tailor them to be a little tighter in the legs as it feels like the knee protection moves around too much and probably would not stay in place during an accident. It warned of this baggy legs on the video but I must have missed it. I do like and recommend them as they look nice and any bit of extra protection is just fine with me. I am pretty picky so once I get them fitted better from the knee down I will be totally in love with them .

Good price, concept, but poor quality
First this product is reasonably priced, looks and feels good. It fits snug. I normally buy 34 jeans, but got the 36/30 and it was perfect. I can wear without a belt. The 12 oz denim makes it look week. I wouldn't trust it will protect me in a fall. The design concept is really cool but when you are on the bike and even with the extended area by the knee, and the fact that it comes longer than normal, the knee pads still rides very high and would not cover my knee on a my bike in a riding position. I tried to lower the pants, adjust the position of the pad, which doesn't have many options, but nothing helped. As soon as I get on the bike, the pants shifted up and the knee pads are no longer covering my knee cap which defeats the purpose. The Kevlar enforcement is great to have but without being able to cover my knee I fee that I only have partial protection. I returned it so i can try other products where I can have my knee cap protected, stronger denim material (14 oz or above) and Kevlar re-enforcement.

Great Jeans for its price
Bought these jeans to test fitment and styling. Very good jeans, not too heavy and they fit just perfect. Will definitely recommend.

Comfortable, runs long though, knee pads off center
These are comfortable enough to work in if need be. Waist fitment seems spot on. Fits more like my old loose fit Levis (the new Levis are tighter). The length is too long. Usually pants with 30" inseams barely ends up under my heel with sneakers and fits perfect with boots. While waiting for my overpants to arrive, I wore these to work. I had to fold them up 2 inches to keep from dragging and stepping on them even with my riding boots on. I will be hemming them up. I've had overpants before, and recently returned an overpant that had the same inseam and it did not have this issue. The new overpant I received today also fits just fine. They need a new ruler or something... Also, the knee pads seem to sit off center on each knee towards the inside. I tried moving it over in the pocket as far as I could, but still points inward slightly. The outer part of my knee cap would be exposed if I go down. The pocket does have some stitching that could allow the pad to move over further if removed. I'll have to look at it closer when I have time. But very comfortable overall.

Fit a little long
The pants do fit a little long on me. I ordered the 32x34, overall they are great. The slightly long fit makes the knee armor sit a little awkwardly when my legs are bent.
Very happy with my purchase, I feel much more secure wearing these when riding than ordinary jeans.

good quality good features
Pants ran a little small. had to return for a couple sizes up from what I normally wear. Knee pads are a good feature. It ran up thighs when in riding position but bc of its Velcro attachment I was able to move and attach it lower on the knee. Didn't know kevlar was going to be a fabric like material but it is what it is

Poor Fit Design
These are about the coolest looking jeans you'll ever put on. I felt pretty sexy looking wearing them...until I tried to move around. I can't sit down, spread my legs to hurdle over my bike seat or sit in a riding position, or even walk around without the crotch seam catching from being sewn all weird.
Fabric was so tight in the knee areas it gave the back of my knees in the joint area blisters!!!
I consider myself slender. I'm 6'2" and only 180 pounds. I wear a 32 with a 34 inseam and that's what I ordered. FIt fine in the waist but these BARELY fit me and I had to struggle with the legs and the groin. Any average sized, muscular, or larger framed person will NOT be able to even get these on.
They are simply not designed properly. If they were they'd be the coolest jeans out there.
With that said, I CAN'T recommend them.
I don't know why it's so darn hard to find jeans that look cool, fit well, and have built in Kevlar and Knee Armor. I just can't seem to find a match...
