I've been thinking of getting a pair of kevlar jeans for a while. Now it seems to me that the conventional construction of these with a kevlar membrane on the inside means that the kevlar does nothing until the denim fails. Being a dedicated contrarian I looked around for an alternative. I found three manufacturers offering m/c jeans made from a single layer denim / kevlar (or aramid) composite weave fabric. Esquad (French), Held (German) and King Kerosin (German). Esqaud doesn't say precisely what their 'Armalith' is but it's probably very good. King Kerosin say theirs is 35% kevlar and come in a few designs. Maybe these are different fit. I don't know. King Kerosin has 32" and 34" inseam option. Held say their Crackerjack jeans are 45% kevlar. Held also come in inch increment waist sizes and standard 32" inseam. I've been very happy with other Held products so a price of $260 landed from fc-moto and I have my Crackerjack jeans. First impression is the fabric feels pretty much like heavy denim. The jeans are a mid rise cut and true to size or maybe a little more snug than expected. I don't know if the fit will ease with wear so I reckon go up a size if in doubt. Out of the box they feel very comfortable. Length for me is just right when seated on the bike. The jeans have internal pockets for knee and hip armour.
