I bought some Draggin Jeans and love them. Even in the middle of winter (which is now for us), I wear a pair of thermal Long Johns under them and that keeps me cool to warm but we seldom get near zero deg C here. In summer they get warm but what do you expect. In summer, anything gets warm. At least a bit of air can get through them, unlike leather. I have multitudes of gear,, 5 leather jackets, 3 leather pants, a one piece leather suit, a Cordura suit, 2 Draggin jeans. My favourite outfit summer or winter is a leather jacket and Draggin jeans. If it's real cold I wear something thermal underneath jacket and jeans, if its warm I simply wear a tee shirt to catch the sweat, a leather jacket and the jeans.
The Draggin jeans are a little heavy beacuse they are thick with the kevlar but are free to move around in whereas leather can be restictive. I do not know how protective they are when sliding down the road. Don't want to find out either.
If you can afford a pair or two, go for it, they are a reasonably good buy...
