Draggin jeans offer dogged protection

ReleaseTheHoundsDesigned for motorcyclists and tested on the tarmac, Draggin Jeans have been chosen to protect contestants from a pack of hounds on a new TV game show!

Premiered on ITV2, Release The Hounds sees three unsuspecting contestants enter a forest at dusk, in a quest to unlock chests full of prize money. In order to locate the keys and win, they must cross a field of crucified scarecrows, descend beneath the floorboards in a deserted cabin and read bedtime stories in the nursery from hell. Their ultimate challenge is to out-run a pack of hounds. If they manage to escape, the money belongs to them.

The producers chose Draggin for the contestants to wear because they needed jeans that were protective but looked like everyday clothing. While the fit, cut and styling of Draggin looks like regular fashion jeans, their unique Kevlar/Dyneema lining offers class-leading abrasion resistance.

Draggin Jeans’ patented positioning system covers each of the primary contact points [backside, hips and knees] with an abrasion-resistant lining that is secured with heavy-duty stitching. Soft, breathable, flexible and non-allergenic, the Draggin Jeans lining is knitted from a combination of Kevlar® and Dyneema®, the World’s Strongest Fibre™ – the same material fitted to their C-Evo jeans, which were the first ever denim jeans to pass the European standard for professional motorcycle clothing (EN13595).

Turns on the heat with Montana Element Gloves

New from Weise, Montana Element gloves not only feature top-of-the-range Thinsulate Supreme thermal lining, but also have heated filaments running around the fingers. Powered by a rechargeable internal battery, there are no fiddly cables or connections to worry about and the wearer can choose between two heat settings [60°C or 45°C] at the press of a button on the cuff.

Made from a mix of textiles and full grain leather, the Montana Element has a waterproof/breathable Hipora liner, which is held firmly in place using McFit technology. McFit laminates the glove liner into the fingertips, so there is no stitching and it is highly unlikely to twist or pull free.

The 120-gram Thinsulate Supreme thermal lining offers the highest level of insulation available for motorcycle gloves, yet is both thin and light. There’s also a chamude overlay panel on the palm for improved grip, 3M Scotchlite piping on the back of the hand for additional night-time visibility and an adjustable storm cuff to prevent rain water running in from the sleeve.

Available in sizes S – 3XL the Weise Montana Element should get a warm reception from British riders this winter.
