These women’s jeans are offered in ladies dress sizes. As a reference point, we measured the size 6 with a 30” waist and a 29” inseam.
The leg on these jeans tapers down to be pretty narrow at the ankle. The pair of size 6 jeans measured 5” across the cuff (so 10” diameter).
Our Two Cents
The Icon MH 1000 jeans are available in a women’s cut too. D3O armor is included in both the hips and knees so these jeans represent a pretty good value with all-in armor.
These jeans are made of a sturdy Cordura/denim blend that should be significantly more abrasion resistant than plain denim. Out of the package, the jeans look like pre-washed Levis with a uniform medium blue wash, and the stitching is gold.
These pants have knee armor inserts by D3O which is Icon’s “go to” brand of armor. The armor is ideal for pants like this since it is soft and flexible and comfortable. The armor slips in a zip close pocket from the front. That pocket has two fabric divisions in it. You an slip the armor into anyone of the three pockets. Each pocket is at a slightly different height, so you’ll be able to adjust the armor position for your own height easily and without taking the pants off. I think that is a terrific feature. The inseam will be long enough for most and if they are a bit long, you could either hem them or just roll them up and bit. The knee area has an extra layer of Kevlar fabric to beef things up. The seat does not have extra reinforcement.
The stretchy nature of these jeans makes them comfortable to sit in and the looks are quite standard, so I think they have wide appeal to motorcyclists that want protection, but also a standard look off the bike. :: Paul, 09-14-18
Icons says: Riding jeans with all-day comfort, the MH1000 are at home both on and off the bike. Constructed of a CORDURA® fabric stretch denim chassis that retains the authentic look and feel of cotton denim, but with added abrasion resistance. DuPont™ Kevlar® knee reinforcements plus 3-position D3O® knee and hip impact protectors are what keep this casual-looking piece anything but. The relaxed fit allows for maximum range of motion. The MH1000 are jeans for the unassuming rider.
