DYNS JEANS in real life - Road rash stories
You've heard many positive things about Dyneema® or Armalith® innovative fabric and its resistance to abrasion, but how does it work in reality?
Unfortunately, accidents happen. We started making Dyneema® jeans in 2019, thousands of them are out there on the road and some of our customers have been unlucky enough to test their strength.
Things like AA certification up to 75km/h, Level 2 protectors, and UHMWPE fiber are just names. Let's check out some real stories from real people who were protected from serious injuries by their DYNS JEANS:

I have (had) a pair of your Strada black jeans. I've always loved the jeans for comfort, a great replacement for regular jeans. They look good, fit well, and aren't hot - which I've found a problem with other 'biker' jeans.
Last week, I had a significant accident at a fairly high speed following a tankslapper. I was airlifted straight to the ED; thankfully, I will make a full recovery. Remarkably, my legs were completely fine despite upper body and head trauma. Minor hip bruises and that's all. The jeans held up extremely well, I suffered no abrasions and the armour did its job. Sadly, the paramedics cut the jeans off me to fit a brace, but they really did an excellent job of protecting me. I'll be singing their praises, and will be chasing a new pair - just as soon as I am able to ride again!

Thank you for the heads up about my order, I'm excited and can hardly wait. I am thoroughly satisfied with your product, it performed very well.
Back in June 2022, I took a pretty hard fall. I low-sided and slid on my right side. When I fell, my right knee, hand, shoulder, and the right side of my head took the brunt of the force. I estimated the slide to have been about 3 seconds, maybe 4.
The knee pad was in the right spot, I had no scrapes or bruises to my right knee. Thank you again for such a great product!

I got into a turn a little too fast. I didn't feel anything wrong until I started scraping more metal than I'm used to. I went down on the low side and rolled down the roadway. My 11 week old 2021 CVO Road Glide with just 3,000 miles on it went off the road into a barbed wire fence....totalled. The Dyns jeans saved me from what would have certainly been at minimum a broken knee cap and excessive road rash.

First I want to thank you for your quality jeans! I was involved in a motorcycle accident and my DYNS Jeans did exactly what I needed them to do! Unfortunately, they were also cut off of me in the ambulance and are destroyed so I will be ordering a new pair at once! The product and service you offer is greatly appreciated!

I just received a pair of your jeans for Father's Day on Sunday. Today (Monday), I took them on their inaugural ride. An hour in, I was violently thrown from my bike at about 70mph. I slid possibly 100ft on asphalt. The jeans mostly performed as advertised, with one burn-through on a knee and another on the keys in my pocket. Thanks to your gear and the protecting hand of the Good Lord, I came away with no serious injuries. So (half jokingly), since I'm still inside 30 days, can I send what's left of them back ;) Thank you for making a great product.

First, let me say these are the best fitting jeans, for my body type, that I've bought. And I have several brands in my closet. Not thick or bulky feeling. From day one, they felt like jeans I've already broken in from years of wear. Secondly, they work! I had my first spill on the streets a cpl weeks back when I was side swiped by a car. Somehow or another, the car's side mirror caught me under the elbow and pulled me off my bike and I was drug down the asphalt for 10-15 feet before the driver came to a stop. It wasn't a great distance, but it was enough for me to believe in these jeans. No rips, punctures or tears. Just a little sheen on the right pant leg from the friction against the asphalt. I was blessed that day as the accident could have been worse, but I was very thankful for having on the best gear money could buy, and that included Dynsjeans.
