REVIT Lombard Jeans The Rev'It! Lombard jeans use a stiff denim fabric with a dark blue washing and real denim yarn that has been triple stitched for extra strength. These jeans sport a regular straight fit, which makes them a versatile jean that will match well with most of the REV'IT! jacket line. The in-house developed PWR shield panels together with the KNOX protection will keep you safe. Meanwhile the comfort seat and COOLMAX elements contribute to ultimate wearer comfort.

I ignored the other reviewers describing these pants as tight in the legs and a diaper in the seat thinking these are just fat guys with no butt and purchased anyways. Rev'it has a long standing making some of the best looking gear on two wheels so why should this be different? Plus the tech sheet on this sounds like the holy grail of duel purpose (on/off the bike) jeans.
Unfortunately, the other reviewers were dead on. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. -Super tight in the legs (to the point where removing them with the pads in was stressful) and my big butt did nothing to fill out the seat. The knee pads are also squarely on shins.

Scorpion Covert Jeans Universal style and brazen protective capability make the Scorpion Covert Jean a uniquely versatile riding pant. With motorcycle specific features that include a Kevlar lining and a knee armor pocket, the Covert Jeans are as comfortable on the bike as they are on a Saturday night out on the town. For the fashion forward rider who doesnt want to sacrifice good looks with real-world protective precautions, the Scorpion Covert Jean is a boutique item in its own class. Features Traditional 5 pocket design 14 oz heavy denim Dark Indigo wash 165GSM DuPont Kevlar lining from knee to waist Knee armor pocket (fits optional Sas-Tec armor sold separately) Mesh lining for comfort and airflow

In town discrete style? -Check. Unfortunately that is where it stops.
I applaud Scorpion on daring to finally release a pair of jeans without obscene stitching lines all over the legs. Serious kudos to you and the design team. From the outside, these look and fit just like my favorite 501's. The Raw indigo wash is professional enough for the modern office and I can see them fading beautifully.
Unfortunately that is where the praise stops. The Kevlar liner is thinner than the actual jean and maybe a third of the thickness rivals like the Drayko Renegade use (in attached pictures- the Drayko is on the right). Even with the knee and hip pads (sold separately), I would be seriously concerned going down over 30mph in a pair of these.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Holy Stretch Batman.
I typically wear a size 32w so I ordered a 30w based on previous reviews. When I opened the package my first thoughts were "there is no way in h*** that thing is fitting around my waist". Well after a little sucking in the first 2 times putting them on, the jean has stretched into a normal 32w. Overall the seams holding the Kevlar in place is barely visible (they did a nice job matching the thread to the jean color) and no one in the office seems to notice I have "motorcycle" pants on. After hemming to my normal length (30" inseam) and wearing for a few days I can safely say these feel about as comfortable as my old Levi 501 jeans and when placed on top of one another match up pretty well on the cut.
Great job Drayko. No more anxiety of having to sacrifice looks for basic protection around the city.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Took all of 3-5 minutes to install, easily locks into place, and keeps scratches off my tank. -win win.
Immediately after installing took a 1k mile trip and have used it nearly every day since as my go to gym bag. This mount is solid.

Excellent protection from the elements and kept a kamikaze bird from potentially doing some serious damage to my foot while in a remote part of S. GA.
Build quality is top notch, however, I would rate the flexibility more of an 8 than 7 as stated in the video. Ie. your not going to want to do any hiking in these.

Great for providing easy plugin access for my headed gloves and keeps my AUX port free to charge my phone and other gear. Highly recommend.
