Ted PascheThese jeans are both stylish and functional. They feature a distressed exterior along with discreet embroidered logo on the two rear pockets, and include Kevlar sewn in all the normal impact areas: rear seat, outer leg from waist to below the knee, and thigh to below knee.

A nice touch is they are cut extra long to allow the owner the option to hem after washing (in cold water, air dry, per instructions) and fit over boots with no problem. All stitching is high quality as there are no loose ends or bunching. In addition to the two rear pockets, there are two in the front and a change pocket on the left front.

Like any unlined Kevlar jeans, they will take a bit of getting used to. Although Kevlar has superior protective qualities, it is rough against the skin.

Personally, I like the look of these jeans. They make a styling statement, but they aren’t too flashy. The waist does ride a little lower than a more traditional fit, but I got used to it. The Drayko Drift jeans not only look good, but they are seriously protective. For the price, they’re a good buy.
