Meet the Defender cargo pant from John Doe. This slim-fitting modern cut moto pant is eminently easy to wear, whether riding through traffic or walking around once you've reached your destination.

Offered in a faded black or an olive green, this pant provides plenty of protection but won’t weigh you down in the summer, thanks to its smart materials and armor spec.

The Secret Sauce

The key ingredient in John Doe’s monolayer riding jeans is its proprietary single-layer XTM fabric—a blend of Cordura, Kevlar, and denim fibers that together will survive a 75mph torture test, achieving the best-in-class AAA CE safety rating.



The resulting wonder material does it all—looks good, vents well in the summer, and thanks to some built-in mechanical stretch, is remarkably comfortable to wear, on and off the bike.

The Pioneers are offered in three good-looking colors—a “used black” which really looks more like an asphalt gray; an Indigo Blue, and a Light Blue. 

Perfect Armor Placement

That abrasion aspect of the motorcycle safety equation is well handled by the John Doe material story, but the impact aspect is covered equally well, thanks to what is the best knee armor adjustment system we’ve seen to date—and we’ve seen them all.



John Doe’s solution is dead simple—first it manufactures its own XTM brand Level 1 armor, which itself is lightweight, ventilated, and pliable. Next, two micro-hook Velcro strips are included on each knee armor piece, which lets the user precisely position the pieces into the knee pockets.

While the knee armor is on the smaller side, profile-wise, the brilliant “bullseye” positioning system lets the wearer target exactly where the knee armor needs to be. One can then record the position in relation to the provided reference marks, and then removal and re-installation becomes a cinch. 

A Cut Above

This new-to-us (and the U.S.) riding brand takes fitting to the next level with a whopping four different leg length options per model on this Pioneer model, and waist-size options are offered in single inch increments through the most popular sizes.

The result is a staggering 80+ different size/color combinations for the most popular John Doe jeans model. This is good for the broad swath of motorcycle jeans shopping humanity, but challenging/impossible for us, the retailer, to keep fully stocked.

Instead, we aim to keep the standard 32-length models in every waist size in stock at all times. If you’re looking for a short, long, or extra-long leg length, please utilize the "Stock Notification" feature that pops up after keying a waist/length/color combination that’s not currently in stock. Or you can always email us directly to inquire about a specific size.
