Pando Moto’s website touts Robby’s Armalith construction. In fact, the jean takes half of its name from the abrasion-resistant material. Frequently used in military and space apparel, Armalith is comprised of cotton fiber and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers. Yes, it’s a mouthful, but the fabric lives up to that lengthy title, resisting tearing, snagging, and abrasion at a higher rate than leather.
To my surprise, the 13-ounce denim is one of the softest pair of black moto jeans (or any jeans) I’ve ever tried on. The material is supple and nothing like the selvage-style denim I envisioned after reading the product description. I personally enjoy breaking in a new pair of jeans, but the process can include months of uncomfortable riding. Right out of the box, Robby’s super-stretch denim was pliant and soft to the touch, which typically requires months or years of washing with selvage denim.
