Women's Defender Motorcycle Jeans by Diamond Gusset



For women riders, finding the right riding gear can sometimes be a challenge. I’m new to motorcycling, so far enjoying riding two-up with friends, and hoping to take the rider safety class this spring and get my license. The folks around here are serious about safety, which was getting me worried about the thin, skinny jeans I was tucking in my boots when I rode, so I was happy to discover Women’s Defender jeans after meeting the Diamond Gusset crew at the 2018 Barber Vintage Festival.

I picked up a pair, and gave them a test drive once I got home. First, these are made of heavyweight, dark blue denim with Kevlar panels sewn in on the bum, hips and knees, but (eureka!) they are wash-and-wear like regular jeans. And while the Kevlar seams do show on the exterior, they’re attractive. Key to these jeans’ comfort is a diamond-shaped gusset in the center of the crotch, which gives the seat a totally relaxed and comfortable fit that’s complemented by the straight leg and overall relaxed style.

Other assets include a wrap strap at the ankle to secure the pant leg around any style of boot, a deep side pocket perfect for any cell phone, and a D-ring at the waist above the right pocket for odds and ends. Exchanges are easy if you have any fit issues (my first pair didn’t fit quite like I wanted), and they’re covered by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 90-day materials and workmanship warranty. Highly recommended for women who pilot or ride two-up. $135.45. Available in woman’s 27-45 waist and 28-35 length. More info: GussetJean Denney
