I can vouch for that.  Being the most recent victim of the Eastern Rallye
curse, I had the opportunity to test my Draggin' Jeans in a real-life crash
situation.  They lived up to their advertising, I guess, in that they did
not tear at the knee.  However, I still got a pretty good abrasion on my
knee from contact with the kevlar.
