That's really cheap compared to what I paid for my Draggin' Jeans. You'll have to let us know how they are once you get them. If they're still on sale, I'll be buying a pair too.

I've been impressed with speed and strength before. (leather jacket, gloves)

I will definitely post up some pics and general opinions about the jeans when they get here.

Okay, I know I promised pics, but work has been crazy.

Anyway, the jeans are pretty nice, comfortable fit for me, although a size up is a must.

It is pre-stressed denim so it's probably not as thick or durable as draggin jeans, but I couldn't say for sure as I've never owned a pair. But for 40 bucks, its better than regular jeans for sure. I can post up some pictures of the jeans either tonight or tommorw.

They look to offer 0 protection over regular jeans...get what you pay for.

i got mine and looked them over. the denim is lightweight and has panels added to knees and seat. the fabric is a blend called Teramid. "mixed with aramid,carbon fiber,steel,and titanium". i'll wear them on my Sunday ride. OH YEAH, THE SIZES RUN SMALL. order at least 1 size bigger.

Looks like nice jeans for the price. I bought some Shift jeans for ~$70 that look to be roughly the same as these. At $40 I would definitely buy a pair if they had a 34" inseam. I know at the $70 price point for my shift jeans I kinda wish I had ponied up for draggin jeans instead.
