    Re: Draggins

    Scooternut:

    just found a hole in the knee of my Draggins. I haven't been crawling or kneeling & have only had them for... maybe 10 months. Mind you, I'm rarely out of them.

    interestingly one knee (the one with the hole in it) looks more worn than the other with the colour more faded. no I haven't been dragging the knee going around the corner either.

    You get holes and you stitch em up again. I dont trust em but they've got good pockets.

    Perhaps you are just too hardcore and you are using them at 10x more than the average rider, and thus wearing holes into them sooner?

    :D

    Anyway, I suspect it's to do with the body shape the pants were designed for.

    Since there's usually only one cut or shape being sold in AU, it's not surprising that if there's a mismatch in body shapes, bits wear out sooner for some than others.

    My belt hoops got vibrated through by my belt, as my waist to crotch distance is too big (big ***) when compared to my leg length.

    Thanks Pyrah, I was thinking about doing that today after reading through some of these messages. Maybe pair the liners up with some R.M. Williams jeans as they apparently wear very well according to the reviews I could find. Might have a look at the hemp jeans also, there's a store on the way to work that sells hemp goods.

    Thanks again! I prefer to wear my DriRider armoured pants in Winter just in case... plus they're obviously also waterproof

    Good thinking, Wanda.
    Then if you don't like 'em, you can always smoke 'em. Big Smile

    Seriously, though......

    I have a small hole in the left knee of my Draggins, which developed out of nowhere. And mine have been worn no more than a couple of dozen days since September 2009.
    It's as though the material has just frayed at this one point.

    Re: Draggins

     MY recent experince with Draggins is that quality is OFF.  (I have 3 pairs - and no, I'd never ride in a pair that were scruffy, filthy or torn.)

    Two pairs (one jeans, one chinos) have bad zips - Draggin use the kind that have to 'lock' at teh top, but they slip.  Fixable but annoying.

    One pair (chinos) has had a seam (albeit not a major one) let go at the waistband.  It doesn't affect the kelvar but it does affect the integrity of the garment and it's that integrioty that keeps them together so the kevlar can do its thing.

    I've sworn by Draggins - I have quite a few pairs of riding pants and mostly use my Draggins - but my next pair of kevlar-lined duds won't be Draggins.  wenough is enough.
