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.

The Drayko lining features a world-leading combination of Kevlar and Dyneema, and is soft, breathable, flexible, non-allergenic and vastly superior to basic woven or knitted Kevlar alternatives. Drayko's revolutionary lining takes advantage of Dyneema's amazing strength to weight ratio to deliver unrivaled safety and comfort. Features The world's only CE approved riding jean 34 inseam allows rider to hem to length Heavy liner constructed of Kevlar and Dyneema is placed in key for abrasion resistance Contrasting stitching Relaxed comfort fit, semi boot cut Heavy weight denim for durability Traditional waist for rider coverage Loose leg for comfort and fits over riding boots Reinforced seams Wide belt loops Zip fly and no rivets on the back for safety Large coin pocket on left for easy access

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.
