    Awesome kevlar and selvedge denim jeans.

    I feel like a king when I ride, my wife relaxed behind me and the gallop of our 1992 HD fxrs between our legs. I'm glad to have the kevlar to help if I lay the bike down. And they're very comfortable. I will buy some more soon! Highly recommended

    Worth the price

    Most protective riding pants I’ve seen look cheap bulky and stiff. Even some with softer feel of poor quality. I can tell that I got an item well worth the price.

    Jeans jeans the medical pant

    The more you use them the more you fly down the highway. These jeans aka archtype are great for on the bike, or going out swing dancing. Every day use and look great doing whatever it is you do.

    Was pleasantly surprised! I expect them to be much thicker and uncomfortably heavy. Yes they are slightly heavier than a regular pair of jeans but not to bad. They fit great and the stitching is heavy duty. I figured my a$$ skin is well worth the price.

    Look great and good construction but poor fit

    I bought these pants just about a year ago and I have one major complaint: they are too low cut for pants that are meant to be sat in for long periods of time. I bought my pair 2 sizes up from what I normally wear (36 vs 34) and though I love them for their quality and style, they aren't very functional as riding jeans. The waists are too low such that it creates pressure on your Lower back and butt during long rides that leads to pain and numbness. I thought it was my seat for the longest time - I even upgraded my seat to no avail - but then I wore a pair of soft chinos with a high waste and I had no pain on my long rides. They still look and function great for casual occasions, but I've almost completely avoided wearing them on my bike at all costs.

    Best in Safety & Style! Jeremy and Nate are gnarly AF!

    Purchased from their warehouse location via apt with Jeremy. Arrived on-site (same day) and was assisted by Nate. Nate was super gnarly in showing and explaining all the products they had in stock and answered every single question I had about it. Ended up purchasing 2 pairs of Jeans and the CA Ridding shirt 2.0. Quality on their salvage raw denim is legit! It shapes to your body the more you wear it and forms well. Not only has Tobacco Motorwear implemented the safety required by standards, but has figured out a way to give it a unique style. Lowkey doesnt even seem as if theyre ridding jeans so I rock them even when I'm in the cage. Currently, hands down the best in quality, style, and safety!

    Solid aesthetic with the peace of mind of saving your fine ass.

    Recently got my pair of TMC jeans and have put about 150 miles on these jeans so far on my new bike. I wore them to work 2 days as well. For reference I live in the Florida heat and these jeans really don't feel different heat wise than my other jeans. The style is sick, no one could tell they were safety jeans (my main goal) and I got asked a few times what brand they were. Size wise, I'm 5'9 220lbs, about a 33 waist, I ordered the 34 ( measurements so these are actually 35.5) and they fit well in the waist with a bit of room for my EDC. Only tightness is in the thigh/crotch which I assume will loosen with more wear. Overall, worth every dollar and I feel much safer when riding and don't look like a doofus.

    Amazing jeans with a peace of mind

    I bought a pair last year and wouldnt wear anything else when i was riding (so bought another pair a week ago). They are comfy, very well made, and you feel safe in them. When i moved my bike with my normal daily jeans i felt naked. Yes the price is steep but you get what you pay for and i have looked at other brands but always run back to Tobacco. Take the plunge you will be asking yourself why you didnt do it sooner.

    My favorite riding jeans; maybe also my favorite jeans period.

    People mention quality repeatedly in these reviews, for good reason. These jeans are extremely high-end, methodical maniacal levels of quality. I've seen criticism elsewhere of the price, but you can find selvedge denim jeans NOT made in the USA WITHOUT Kevlar for a similar price. The gorgeous appearance aside, I've also had the unfortunate opportunity to test the protective aspect of the jeans while sliding down the highway at 55MPH. The denim wore through, but the Kevlar did not. These jeans, quite literally, saved my ass. I will not get on my motorcycle without wearing a pair of Tobacco jeans.
