iXS Cassidy II Review
The iXS Cassidy II jean is the perfect match for those who prefer to be a bit more discrete while on two wheels. Made from finely woven, heavy-duty 100-percent jean material, the Cassidy II pant also features 100-percent Aramid protection in the seat, thigh, knee and hip areas.
The Cassidy II is a simple, straight-forward, five-pocket jean that is available for both men and women in a wide range of sizes. With a stone wash, the jean are inline with the styling of street wear. A simple button clasp and zipper rounds out the features in that department.
When it comes to hard protection, the Cassidy II has you covered with some height adjustable knee protector that are in accordance with EN1621-1. There is initially a bit of wiggle room around the knee protection, but once you mold them to the shape of your knee, they stay put well. The knee protectors also drop down and cover a decent portion of your shin, and stop where a set of boots would begin.
Additionally, the iXS Cassidy II features two hip protection pockets. But if you’d like protection in those pockets, you’ll need to find something on your own.
The cut and fit is that of a traditional straight leg jean. The iXS Cassidy II is a bit baggier in the calves – by no means is this a skinny jean. Boots with high protection clauses that cover the shin can easily fit under the pant leg.
What you see is what you get – rock solid, no frills jean with good protection features made out of high quality material. iXS’s MSRP begins at $439 USD. For additional information about the Cassidy II Jean, please visit www.ixsusa.com
