I normally don't promote but just saw there on sale. I own 2 pairs of HB riding jeans. They are not top shelf quality but are pretty good. First pair I bought was about 4 years ago. Have worn and washed them a lot, 50+ times, no issues as they are holding up about the same as some wrangler jeans that are the same age. Second pair is about 3 years old and holding up well. They are cut a little low in the waist but not too low. I'm a short skinny guy so can't say how they will fit those who have a more "mature" build. Armor is not all that great. The amour pockets appear to be made of left over material from other clothing, but it's on the inside so no-one sees it. I normally don't use armour. I figured the Kevlar will keep road rash to a minimum if I ever go down. The straight legs are wide enough to slid over my boots, works pretty good as boot cut jeans will flap some in the wind. So if looking for a pair of Kevlar jeans for about the price on regular jeans you might want to check these out.
