Despite their flowery name, the armored Kevlar-lined Daisy jeans from Alpinestars are pretty damn tough. 

They come "aramid fiber" reinforced panels at the seat and knees for far superior abrasion resistance than the 13-ounce denim shell material, which really needs to be considered as a sacrificial layer, because denim generally doesn't to jack-squat in a motorcycle crash. With all-black stitching and construction and Italian-influenced slim fit cut, these jeans fly way under the radar. They come in one length and can be hemmed by any tailor to dial in leg length. The knee armor pocket has two positions to adjust fit for different leg lengths.

The Daisy jeans are ideally suited for riding around the city, heading out on a brunch ride and tackling back roads. The CE-rated armor is significant and molds well to the wearer's knee. The hip pads are minimal, but don't disrupt the fit and, as they say, are better than nothing.

Disclaimer time: This is a hybrid product that comes with an important caveat—while they're light-years better than unlined, un-armored fashion denim, they still lag behind proper armored leather pants (such as the women's Gear 2 pants from REVIT) in terms of absolute abrasion protection.
