Yay for motorcycle-specific skinny jeans! This means I can look like a real human even with highly-effective protection on and off the bike. They're also comfortable and fashionable.
These Voyager Moto Jeans are black with some nice stitch work, texture, and detail like quilting on the knee and hip. They're 98% cotton and 2% spandex and lined at all impact zones with abrasion-resistant para-aramid fiber.
Here's my short, 60-second review of the jeans so far. Sign up for my email list and I'll let you know when I write the full report for these jeans and other gear I'm trying out.

You can purchase these and the other styles of jeans here on Atwyld's website.
By the way, para-aramid fiber made by DuPont is trademarked Kevlar and para-aramid by Teijin in Japan is branded Twaron®. So yeah, this jean offers the same protection, unbranded.
Okay, these jeans don't come cheap at $330. However, the quality and workmanship is much superior to that I've seen on cheaper jeans, and they include the the latest, lightest, and most breathable D30 knee and hip pads are included. (Without them, you'd be paying $35 each for the pair, so think of them as a $260 pair of jeans.) The armor slips quickly in and out of open pockets at the hips and zippered pockets at the knees.
Sizing: I'm 5'8" and 135 pounds and normally wear a size 8 pant. The size 30 jean fits me perfectly and, like most skinny jeans, they're tight, so I have to peel them off inside-out. This is a small boutique operation so they don't have a wide variety of sizes in moto pants yet (24-36) but they do offer their jackets in size XS - XXL.
Dive deeper into the construction of the Voyager Moto Jean in Atwyld's video that also includes a great explanation of how D30 works.
Ladies, what motorcycle pants do you wear? Do you wear moto jeans? Love them? Hate them? Give me your review and recommendations in the comments below. Thanks!
I like them, especially where you can take the pads out with a zipper. How stretchy are they? Nice job on the video Carla. 🙂
Thanks Tammy! I know 2% spandex doesn’t seem like much but they are really stretchy. I pulled them on the first time like panty hose and thought no, these are too small, but once I was in them they fit great. Admittedly, I am not used to skinny jeans. Now I’m a convert.
