SA1NT is a company that has designed a line of motowear apparel for riders that care about safety, looking good, and staying comfortable all day while on or off their bike. They’ve figured out a way to craft a single layer protection within their clothing to eliminate the bulkiness you would normally see and feel in abrasion resistant material. The denim is made of abrasion resistant fibers that are meant to be worn all day and night. The single layer protection is made by “stretching, spinning, and blending ballistic, industrial military application threads with wearables like merino and cotton”. Sounds great right? We thought so too. So when they offered to send over a line-up for us to test, we were eager to see just how well this “single layer protection” denim held up.

The throwback design of the Unbreakable Denim Shearling Collar Jacket pays tribute to the original US ranchers and railroad workers, while staying relevant in todays pop culture trends. Made of the resilient UHMWPE blended black coated fabric, it also comes with a swappable faux fur shearling collar (1 black and 1 white). It has a “moto cut”, which has slightly elongated sleeves and a slight drop tail for proper coverage while riding. The buttons on this jacket are heavy duty and can be a little difficult at first to squeeze through the slots. But this becomes a little easier after the break-in period.
There are two chest pockets that could hold a few spare keys or a packet of gum . The lower two pockets double as inside pockets big enough to store your phone. Clever double usage of the same pocket with very good stitching. While this single layered jacket is made of very heavy duty denim material, it is rather light and very easy to wear.
Depending on your ideal fit, I would recommend sizing up if you want a “relaxed fit” since there is very little stretch in the durable denim. If you prefer a more snug fit, then it does run true to size. Just be aware that mobility may not be as great at first since there is a longer break-in period with this jacket.

For the days where it’s warm enough to leave the Jacket on the coat rack, but you still want some protection while looking like a real G, the Moto Denim Vest is where it’s at. This Vest is made of the same SA1NT denim that is 5 times tougher than any other standard denim vest. Plus it actually has real comfort and style. The denim is impact, burst, and abrasion resistant. So you can rest assured knowing you are protected while sporting the symbol of youth, rebellion, and freedom. Similar to the Jacket, there are two chest pockets and two lower pockets that also double as inside pockets for easy and ample storage. Lightweight, single layered, heavy duty built-to-last denim, and stylish AF. This is one of my favorite pieces from this collection.

Put them big boy pants on and ride like a real man (with added protection) in these Unbreakable Slim Jeans. It can be hard to find riding jeans that look like actual jeans off the bike while still having the incredible protection that comes with these Unbreakable Slim Jeans.

These pants are meant to hold the D30 Ghost armour that give you even more protection in the hips and knee area.

If there is one item of clothing I take for granted, that would be socks. When I have a generic pair of socks on, it becomes noticeable when doing certain activities. It’s the times you don’t notice any hindrance or performance issues that make having a solid pair of socks worth it. The SA1NT bamboo crew socks have all day comfort but with anti-bacterial and moisture wicking features built in. The lightweight and breathable design makes it so that you forget you are even wearing socks. The last thing you want are sweaty and uncomfortable feet while riding. The SA1NT bamboo crew socks are the perfect pair of socks to go along with the rest of your SA1NT gear.
