Chris Hayes of Teknic Gear had these really cool Jeans on display called “Xcelerator” and what caught my eye was they came with Velcro knee pads that you can adjust. I had to get an interview with Chris to find out more about these jeans. Below are some stats on the “Xcelerator Jeans” via Teknicgear.com:
250 gram / 100% knit Kevlar® reinforcement throughout 90% of jean.
Knox® CE Approved multi-position armor system/ with Velcro fastening in the knees / shins, provide an adjustment system allowing personal & correct positioning of armor.
Double row stitching for added durability.
Kevlar sewn into jean to avoid potential of panels sliding upon impact.
Offset knee panel for better tear resistance.
Leather reinforcement overlays in high wear areas.
Fashion / boot cut styling
