Alright. At first, when i saw thse things, i thought they would rip from one slam, like every other pair of jeans i've owned. Three hours later, after slamming HARD on the KNEES at least a dozen times (I am still learning how to frontside air out of my mini ramp), they had no fraying, no fading, and no rips. I was very impressed. These jeans are extremely comfortable, stretch just enough, and take a huge beating. Great jeans.
