Hi all, Small backstory: I recently had a low speed off at an advanced rider day - my first off (whilst wearing a pair of draggin's) - and my knee got a little ripped up from kevlar burn/friction from the jeans against my leg. While it was nothing to serious, I wondered if there was a way to stop this from happening again (particularly if I was in a more serious accident). Since I am located in Melbourne, I thought my best bet might be to head over to Draggin's HQ in Port Melbourne and have a chat to the guys/girls. This is where I came upon a new discovery. After speaking to one of the owners/managers, I was informed that they are about to release (within the next few months) a new product to market that will solve the problem of kevlar burn/friction that destroys the skin. I was shown a prototype pair of jeans (blue denim) that had the yellow kevlar backed with a perforated silk mesh type material. The material allows the skin to slide rather than 'catching' on the kevlar and burning the leg. The other awesome thing about these jeans is that they have also removed the seam above and below the knee where the kevlar is usually stitched into, so the jeans look like regular denim jeans. The perforated inner liner allows everything to breath (and from what I could tell would be alot better than the regular kind in the summer) and the weight of the jeans is similar if not the same to regular Draggin's. I was informed that they would probably sell them for around $100 more than the standard jeans (so about $309). I only got a quick look at them, but I think they will be a good addition to my wardrobe when they come out.
