• Icon Recon Jeans

    I've had my recon jeans for about a year now, but yesterday was only the second time I wore them. The first time I wore them it was for my 50 mile r/t to work and home, so I couldnt get a real "feel" for them. I have not worn them over the summer because they are really hot.

    I wore them yesterday for 195 miles and I like them. They are comfortable and great for the cooler temps. We rode into the 60s and shady areas and my legs were perfectly warm.

    The only complaint I have with them is the seams hit my legs in funny areas so it bugs me until I adjust the pant legs after I start riding. Once I bend my knee so my foot's on the peg, the seam hits right across the middle of my kneecap or something, and is just bothersome. So I hike the thigh part a little bit and then it's fine. I think because the jeans are of a heavy material, the seams are more prominent. They were not an issue after I figured out the above adjustment.

    They dont exactly look fashionable because of the black ribbed areas throughout, but that's ok. I didnt mind when my mom asked what was "wrong" with my pants. LOL

    ... but won't the frozen turkey provide additional cooling? We might need that thermal advantage if it is a long slow cooking journey.
