Shift Jeans - June 8, 2010, 07:31 PM

Just got these delivered today:

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...que-Jeans.aspx





And wooooooooooo...these are comfortable as hell. I'm going to wear these for just chillin' in addition to riding. They have Kevlar reinforcement panels in the rear and knee/shin areas to prevent ripping in the event of a catastrophe and are size 33 in length so the cuffs don't ride up when at a stop or while your knees are bent while riding. If anybody is in the market for some riding jeans I highly recommend these, I'll be picking up another pair soon.

btw, what's the difference between those and the "Lodown" jeans?

Just the styling?

Yeah, I went back and forth between the two before buying and they're exactly the same spec wise. I'll probably get the Lodowns next just to mix it up - on the Torque jeans there's a little design by the left front pocket and the back right pocket buttons shut and has the Shift logo on it. The Lodowns are plain straight through denim with no patterns or designs.

The jeans are heavy, but the slider cargo pants I find more comfortable

Do they run large or small or did you order your normal waist size and it fit just right?

I've had Draggin Jeans which used Kevlar and now have some Cortech jeans which use perforated leather. I've found that the Cortech jeans are much more comfortable as the Kevlar didn't breathe at all.

As far as the sizing goes the Kevlar & leather do not stretch at all so you may want to order one size up.


Ill believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

I'm skeptical as to whether they offer any practical difference in protection over regular jeans. Stuff will just tear around where the kevlar panels are, not to mention it has zero armour to actually protect against knee impact, etc.

From "J.L." (11/0: "I have the Shift Torque jeans, and have been very happy with them overall. I had a rather sensational high-side this past summer and slid for a good 20-30 feet or so mostly on my backside after my initial landing. Let me tell you, any concerns as to how these jeans will hold up in a crash can be put to bed.

Even after such a massive off, the pants are barely even scuffed. There are no torn seams, no rips, no shredded arse area, no nothing. In fact, I still wear them and people are none the wiser. Even my wife couldn't tell if it was a different pair of jeans or not (and she has been riding longer than I have, so it's not like she's a novice).


And from Product Review Shift Torque Jeans - Cruiser Apparel Review - Motorcycle USA

Though we don't normally like to crash test products, I can vouch first-hand for the Torque Jeans durability. During a 40 mph get-off and the ensuing head-over-heel tumbles through a rock-strewn ditch, the jeans came away with no rips or tears. I took a healthy chunk out of the inside of my right knee in the exact spot where the leather reinforcement is placed, but the patch was unscathed and the pants showed no signs of distress. Best of all, the caked-on blood washed out easily and didn't stain the dark blue denim.
