Well-fitting asphalt resistant kevlar-lined denim jeans for motorcyclists

Upshift Apparel LLC has begun crowd funding their first product: the Upshift Straight Cut Kevlar Jean for motorcycle riders. Fashionable, well fitting, denim with a unique heat and abrasion resistant Kevlar lining. Learn more about the Kickstarter campaign here:

The Upshift Straight Cut jean features high quality 14oz denim in a fashionable dark wash, with a unique 220 gsm Aramid Kevlar fabric lining in the seat, thighs and double reinforced in the knees.

“Motorcycle apparel has always been a compromise,” said Chris Fetherston, founder of Upshift Apparel. “Tolerate ill-fitting, cumbersome gear, or wear street clothes and risk not having the protection you need.”

“That’s why we created the Straight Cut. We’ve spent 8 months developing and testing our prototype,” Chris continued, “and now we’re looking for the support of the community to help place our first production order.”

Once Upshift’s funding goals have been reached, supporters will receive a survey asking to confirm sizing and final shipping details. Then the production of the first batch of Upshift Straight Cut jeans will begin.
