I joined this site recently after the Lean Angle Jeans came up on the search for new gear. I have been looking for riding jeans for a very long time and I never bought a pair because they just looked weird. I typically ride in leathers and sometimes overpants. I have jeans that are low rise so low rise is not a problem. I do agree with others, a regular fit should be an option in the future. I have used the jeans for a week and a half now and I must say that I love them. At first, they felt weird but after an hour on the bike, I felt fine. I even picked up my bike from the shop the other day. My mechanic didn't even notice that I was wearing protective gear. I also got compliments from my girlfriend. Removing the armor can can a bit difficult at times but I don't think it's anything a visit to the restroom can't fix.. Other than that, I worn them on a few 85-90 degree weather and they felt comfortable while moving. Once I stopped and walked around, it was definitely cooler than my leathers and probably as hot as wearing regular jeans at those temperatures. Maybe it was better since you have the other fabric touching your skin as opposed to denim. They are true to size. I wear 30x30 and I ordered 30x32. If you wear your jeans loose, then order a size higher. I really like the fact that they do stretch in key areas. They are heavier than regular jeans but that is expected and not a big deal. Would I wear these jeans to work daily? Probably but I don't ride daily. For me, it will serve as my hang out gear. Many times, I am riding and people want to meet up at a restaurant or bar(I don't drink and ride but I still meet) and I hate to show up looking like I have 2 pairs of pants or looking like a power ranger. Great customer service and great product. I highly recommend them. PS: if there are changes in the future, I will probably get another pair. I really like them.
