Round House bib overalls are made in Oklahoma. Tough! I wear the stripes if I'm going to town and need to impress someone. The plain blue are OK for working around the Oleo Ranch. Lots of pockets. You can undo the side bottoms when it gets warm in the summer.

I love Oklahoma, but how are they in a crash?...

I've got three pairs of 'em. Last pair I bought was 3 years ago. Apparently they doubled in price since then. I would look for something else at this price.

I like 'em but the armor is small and doesn't stay in place. It literally came with little pieces of (hook) Velcro you were supposed to attach to the pads. This would then cling to the Kevlar inside the knees. 

I went with Forcefield "Limb Tubes" for my knees and really, really like them. They wrap around your knee, are CE2 rated, stay in place and are comfortable enough to walk around in all day.

My Draggin' Jeans faded to white across my lap after just 3 seasons. I wash them frequently because it's the nature of cotton to absorb odors, gravel dust, bugs, etc. In farm country I have all of that in abundance. Because of this I would not tour in them. For that I prefer my Aerostich Dariens.

I agree. Kevlar jeans are okay locally, but I use sturdier armored textile riding pants when traveling. The added protection and water resistance make up for the way you look in a restaurant.

It appears that there are now two separate manufacturers using the Draggin Jeans name. The Australian product is substantially more expensive:

I have some that I hardly used.  I prefer Diamond Gusset Defender jeans with Bohn under them.
I'll look in my shop if you're interested.  I may even still have the knee armour.

PM me if you're interested.  If not, no worries.
