This post is not necessarily a gear review but my quick rant about the Alpinestars jeans I bought some time ago. Motodisiac and I stopped at a local cycle gear store to kill some time. And there they were, on sale at 50% off. I decided to try them on as I needed a pair of jeans to walk around the office in.
The jeans fit me pretty well at the store. So I handed over 40 bucks to the cashier (who happened to be a pretty good looking girl). It has been a couple of months now and I have been wearing these jeans pretty much non stop. Yes, I have been washing them too. Now that the weather in Southern California became much warmer I even ride in them instead of the heavier Rev’it Ultimate Pants.
The jeans are made pretty good. A couple of my female friends had found them fairly stylish (sorry for being a little vain here). So long story short - highly recommend. They won’t offer full protection, but as an every day wear pants they’d be just fine. Follow this link to the Alpinestars website to purchase them for full price or search the web to get a better deal.
P.S. No, it’s not my ass in this picture :).
