For an extra layer of protection, wear Bohn Armor Pants under your favorite Kevlar® jeans.
When it comes to protection, it’s important the armor you wear is positioned as close to your body as possible. When you wear Kevlar®, where the armor is already installed, the armor can bounce around and is not always where it needs to be upon impact. This is why our armored pants work so well.
Unlike Kevlar® jeans, which most often only provide abrasion protection, our lightweight, flexible armored pants are carefully designed to keep the armor close to your body, ensuring maximum impact protection and abrasion protection where the armor is.
Featuring CE-Rated armor with lightweight, breathable, fabrics, our armored motorcycle riding pants deliver the comfort you crave with that extra layer of protection you need.
Are the armored pants hot?
Not at all! Unlike other brands, we offer three fabric options to suit your riding needs. We use Lycra and mesh fabrics to keep you cool and help wick away moisture. If you are riding in really hot, humid weather, we recommend our 100% mesh, fully breathable Cool-Air Mesh pants.
Will the pants fit under my jeans?
We have found the most popular/average Kevlar® jeans (ie. Diamond Gusset, Draggin, Sliders, Icon, Alpinestar, etc.) fit comfortably over our armored pants. Even ladies jeans, which can be a bit tighter, usually have enough stretch to fit the low-profile armor.
What about your armor – is it good stuff?
We get this question more and more each day. Understanding the different ratings and protection levels can be confusing. In a nutshell, our armor is awesome! Just ask 1000’s of rider who wear our gear. Our pants come with CE Level 1 armor on the hips, knee and shin. Our pants also offer tailbone and thigh protection (most armored pants do not come with these additional pieces of armor). Our pants and armor are more than likely an upgrade to most of your gear you already have and is the perfect amount of protection for street riding. Our armor was developed by a motorcycle racer and avid street rider and he took protection very seriously—wanting to provide the best, most comfortable armor possible.
Will I need to replace the armor if I take a fall?
When you take a fall you usually bounce first, then slide. Our armor helps take the initial impact (the worst part of the fall). You usually won’t need to replace the armor, but we recommend you inspect it for damage. If you need to replace armor or shells, we sell them individually: Buy Armor | Buy Shells
