    You have mentioned in the past these are more of a 501 cut. how close to a 501 are they? After ordering others based on the same claim, I ended up returning them all since they had the shape of a potato sack. 501's tend to fit like a glove on my "athletic" build. Which is a good thing. Ps. I'm a 32x32.

    I'm excited to support a fellow ADV rider.

    I have the same athletic build you do and wear that exact size, while I can't make the claim that they are exactly like 501's because its our own design, they are definitely nowhere near a potato sack. This is something we made very clear to the designer when making these.

    I just ordered me up a pair - Domiken was very helpful in making my sizing selection - I had A LOT of questions..... Can't wait to see these smartly designed jeans show up at my door!

    Yeah, similar to the previous poster I'm interested to know if you will have another 20% discount in 2014 for ADVRider inmates like you originally offered in this thread last year?

    On a design note . . . a diamond gusset design would wear longer and be more comfortable in the critical area where regular jean seams tend to get a lot of wear in the saddle. Just sayin' . . . :wink:

    Thanks again for your order. Feel free to ask away, we are always available to help, especially figuring out the proper fit.

    PM'd

    We offer inmates a discount, but it's not 20%, that was a promotional discount when we first launched early last year.

    Thanks for the suggestion, we will look into it.

    Feel free to contact me via PM. Not breaking forum rules here as you guys know our price is $259.99, we will gladly help fellow inmates, but at the moment cannot post it up.

    I've been enjoying my LAJ's for a month or so now, and I must say 'Why did I wait so long!!!???" Seriously, these pants are incredibly comfortable to wear. As for the fit, I tried on 3 different pairs, and finally figured it out. Domiken has you physically measure out your favorite jeans, flat across the waist. My favorite jeans were quite stretched out, so that fudged my measurements. I measured jeans straight out of the dryer, and measured some jeans that weren't so sacked out, and averaged those numbers. Since LAJ uses spandex in their mix, you can err on the 'tighter' side when measuring your jeans. So, measure your favorite jeans, fresh out of the dryer, then round up a 1/4-1/2 inch or so - the LAJ spandex does make a huge difference. Either way, Domiken was very helpful in facilitating dialing in the sizes, so I didn't mind paying for shipping a few pairs to try (I did put two pair on my CC, and refunded one). For my daily moto commute, I wear the LAJ's, and leave em on for the whole day. Nobody at my office is the wiser, since they look like regular jeans - even with the hip and knee pads installed. Truly stealth-ware/wear. And, the bit o' spandex in the jeans makes them, I dare say it, even more comfortable to sit long hours at my workstation than my regular cotton Levi 559's that I like.

    As for on the bike comfort - they are a revelation for comfort. I normally commute wearing overpants, and for those of you who do still, you know that wearing TWO pairs of pants is not an optimal comfort solution. I loved riding in my Levi's, but knew full well that they only offered protection from bugs, not pavement! LAJ's truly feel like you're riding around in your regular jeans - it's gotta be the smooth liner that contributes to the comfort of these pants. So far, I've ridden in temps as high as mid/high 80's and noticed none of the 'plastic bag' feeling I often got with my overpants. Not sure how they did it, but LAJ don't make my legs feel hot at all, when the temperatures get hot. My longest ride so far was about 3 hrs long - a mixture of dirt roads and pavement, all on my Vstrom 650. The ride demonstrated to me how nice these pants are for long rides - no bunching up in the crotch (usually I'm 'repositioning' my man-bits after a while when using overpants, or even normal jeans), the pads 'disappear' while riding - you don't notice em, only the great feel of just riding in jeans is what's there....

    I don't often say it, but these pants are worth every penny - get a pair.

    Thanks for your review jokermtb :clap Glad you like them!

    Regarding the protective liner and heat, that's our little formula :evil Definitely changing the minds of folks who think fully lined protective jeans are "hot", well not ours :D

    We love hearing the feedback from customers and the sharing of pictures. When it comes to sizing we will work with every customer to ensure they get the proper fitting pair, all it takes is a 2 minute measurement and our team will take those measurements get to work on finding your size. Vanity sizing affects lower body garments, don't use your current label size, take the measurements and we will match.

    Here's an e-mail I got today from a fellow SVRider who took a trip to the Dragon last week:

    I just returned from a four day trip to Vermont which pushed my mileage on my new jeans to just over 1000. I have used them in temps from mid 50's to mid 90's with various levels of humidity. All temp ranges were quite comfortable and only the high temps in direct sunlight would cause my internal temp to rise and that was only sitting at a light on pavement. I am coming from over-pants and these are a great step up in both comfort and style. Overall, the quality is excellent with top notch craftsmanship. As others have noted, the jeans are heavy but when I was wearing them, I didn't notice the weight. I am used to the low rise cut so that didn't bother me and five belt loops worked well, all day comfort without issues. I initially ordered a direct match to my current jeans and that is exactly what arrived. I wear an adv high calf boot which kept the jean from falling properly at the ankle, I exchanged for the next length and all was fixed, they fall just right without looking short or bunching.
    Overall an excellent product with great customer support and response to back it all up. I am highly recommending these to anyone looking to wear full protection without the bunny suit look.
    My only issue is my wife now wants a pair and there is nothing available. Thanks for that headache!

    Kevin,

    Received my jeans today in record time. You must have air mailed them.
    The fit is perfect and quality very good. Looking forward to riding with them in the morning.

    I'm looking at Resurgence Gear because they have women's but I'd wait to buy Lean Angle IF there's going to be women's any time soon.

    Any ETA at all? :dunno

    cheers
