PSA - Kevlar Jeans (inc injury pics)

I have a warning for anyone who uses kevlar jeans. Make sure you have a set that are fully lined with kevlar, if they are only partially lined then they don't protect you where the kevlar isn't! I recently lowsided and my jeans split above the kevlar at the knee so my knees got pretty chewed up.

I hate to see your knees like that but it's good that you posted the pics. I've worn the cheaper partially Kevlar lined pants in the past but I only wear fully lined Hood Jeans now.

Clearview windshield, Pazzo levers, Triumph LED DRL headlamp, Triumph LED indicators, 4 bar tank badges, chrome throttle body, clutch and inspection covers.

Thatís why they come (or should) with knee pads. Guilty as charged, sometimes I donít put mine in for city rides, but I almost always do. And I have extra sets for all my Kevlar jeans. There is little point to wear the gear without the impact protection.

Damn, that looks pretty bad mate. I've ordered some fully lined jeans but the makers haven't got back to me yet.
