Draggin Jeans?

Anybody ever tried this brand? I can NOT find decent riding pants anywhere... Or if anyone has a wife/girlfriend that rides could you ask them what brand they like? I waited a month for these G-line pants that are just a freaking joke. Any help would be cool...

First off, have you tried New Enough???


Draggin's are great. Sh*tloads of riders down here wear 'em, especially the camo ones. Their only downside is there's no armour (granted you can wear armour under them if you want, though). I wear textile pants to work and leather the rest of the time. I wouldn't mind some Draggin's, though.

Your best best might be to find someone who does custom work. You'd be suprised just how competitively-priced some of them can be.

Awesome, thanks cookee. That website has a ton of decent looking stuff on it. I'll have to go back and look at the Draggin's again, I thought it said they had knee armor, but I could be mistaken. They aren't really the style that I like anyway... But yeah I want to get some textile pants, I don't think I could stand the leather during the summer. I did think about making my own from a good pair of jeans (buying the armor and sewing it in) but that's my last resort...

There are a ton of companies that make "Jean" style riding pants. That's what I wear. They are <$100.

Can you throw me some links or names? I like my jeans low cut but the Draggin's are waaaaay high.

Somehow "low cut" and "safety" don't really add up. I wonder if they make them in capris too?

And to buy them, newenough.com usually has good prices.

I bought a longer jacket to take care of that problem already. I didn't like the way most jackets didn't cover my lower back when riding. So I got a medium which has tons of room in it and nice long sleeves. Got it covered, but thanks.
