Steph,

Please post a review with photos when you get your leggings. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the look of them ... so much cooler than my Bella Sliders.

!!! That is NOT what I was thinking when you said leggings! I was actually wondering how the leggings in my mind would ever protect you from a spill but I am so loving those I want to order me a pair too! They look more like skinny jeans without the button and zipper. Of course I have no business trying to squeeze my junk into leggings. So I may have to go somewhere to try those on first! :lol: I really like them though! So I"m looking forward to the review when you get them!

This thread got me to really looking hard at kevlar jeans and I just created a thread about the Drayco Drift Riding Jeans I got in from Revzilla today. The link is below (hopefully it will work.)

Most riders here would wear Draggins'. Ive been wearing them since day one. Not a wide choice of styles here, but they're well made and have a good reputation.

I got them in last week! Totally worth the wait. And true, Jes, the term "leggings" for them is a little misleading. They fit and look like skinny jeans because they're thick/heavy and have pockets, but are actually soft and stretch a bit like leggings do. I've only worn them around the house so far but I plan to ride in them later this week and will post a review and photos. I chose my typical pants size and mine fit slightly loose (I may eventually get another pair in a size down so I can have one pair that fits perfect and another I can put layers under in cold weather).

Very cool Steph! I am going to look into these! I like my new Drayco jeans but I could certainly see adding these to my wardrobe! Thanks for sharing!

Steph, are you talking about the jeans or GoGo Gear kevlar leggings? I'm really interested in the leggings.

The kevlar leggings!

I did love riding in them last week - I just haven't gotten around to writing with more details and photos. Soon!

There's a newish company that is getting some decent press on social media for riding apparal just for women. The riding jeans are a bit pricey but they have abrasion resistance, knee and hip armor and are made to order. They're only available online but maybe worth a try. www.worsewear.com

Just an update, I posted my thoughts on the kevlar leggings (and photos) in a new thread.
