Customer Reviews for Resurgence Pekev Voyager Jeans - Vintage
Good Jeans but...
Jeans are nice, heavy enough to do the job. Bit fiddly to get the knee pads in right place but at least they can be adjusted many can't. Was a bit disappointed that the stirrups are missing, it lols as though they are no longer included. Also I would have liked the jeans to be wide enough to go over my boots as it is they just fit inside again not quite well thought out. Level 2 protection is good. Like many things they are a compromise between form and function.Read more
Top dollar expectation not met
Feel like really good quality heavy duty warm jeans initially. However with wear I have decided could and should be better for price point. First of all resurgences sizing is wrong they come up big around the waist and short in the leg and groin. I am a safe 36 regular all day everyday. 34L in these jeans. They are wider around the waist then they need to be, if anything should be narrower due to weight and stretch on material. I worry with more wear they will just become loser and loser due to weight and stretch. Obviously protection that feels like it might fall off is not great. Knee armour attached by velcro. Velcro strip on the jeans itself doesn't go full length of pocket space for armour, very odd, you are therefore limited to where to place the knee armour. Also armour is uncomfortable against the knee. At this price material against the knee should provide better comfort. Yes you could use a base layer but these are thick/warm enough. On my 3rd and final pair (problem with all 3) the left strap buckle to hold them in place under your foot was stitched the wrong way around resulting in constant rubbing, took me a while to figure out why the left foot rubbed but right didn't. Could just cut them off. Could exchange apart from resurgence let down sports bike shop on stock. Currently a 9 week wait. Sportsbikeshop is brilliant, customer service is second to none. They will return, refund, exchange happily. Resurgence first pair was labelled wrong, 2nd pair was too big I actually measured 39inch waist on what should have been 36. 3rd pair faulty. I worry that they appear to be rushing, not checking their product which makes me wonder, if size labels and buckles are attached wrongly what else could be wrong with these jeans, and do I really want to find that out sliding down the road. In my opinion a faulty strap to hold Jean in place and wrong sizing would/should fail it as a CE level 2 garment. I wonder what quality control or checking is in place for after a garment is certified to check all future garments fit the same standard. Put simply for the price I expected a better more polished pair of jeans. I want the best, price is not a issue when safety is involved, unfortunately these are not the well polished product the price suggests they are.Read more
Comfy, protected feeling.
Made the mistake of not lining up the knee protectors properly at first, and then ended up with quite sore knee caps! Much better now I've got them in the proper location. The jeans look great, and make me feel well protected. I think the book straps look a little bit dorky, but that's the price you pay for proper certified protection. These jeans make me feel protected, which is what I paid top dollar for!Read more
Comfy and look great!
My wife insisted i look for a high rated pair of safe motorcyclist jeans as I am currently working toward my A license. Resurgence is top of the line. I am impressed - they fit well - I'm probably a 35 inch waist and I got the 34 so theres a but of room. They are heavy jeans but thats the pekev weave. They feel great on though and you forget about that. Been out in 25C heat and still feel great and don't tend to sweat. Also been out in the rain with no issues. I am now finding myself pursuing for other Resurgence wear as Soortsbikeshop has a great range. I haven't had to 'use' them for their main purpose, which is safety, but if I do fall off the bike, it's one piece of kit I'm glad I have. I wear them with the tcx brown boots and brown spidi firebird brown jacket for a vintage look.Read more
Great service as always from Sportsbikes. The jeans fit to size, for me anyway, although due to full lining I find them very slightly less roomy than the equivalent 'half lined' Resurgence jeans. Overall very high quality jeans.Read more
Excellent quality. Nice roomy fit with level 2 amour included.Look like your normal jeans.Read more
So far so good. They are very comfortable both on and off the bike. I like the adjustable knee armour pockets, I'm long from the hip to the knee so I fined in a lot of off the peg clothing that the armour is to high and puts pressure on my knees. These have plenty of adjustment. I have not washed them yet so as long as they do not shrink I can highly recommend them. Normal excellent service from SBS.Read more
Great service quick and easy way to shop and great value for moneyRead more
Love these jeans
have had armoured jeans in the past but found them to be ill fitting and problems with keeping the armour in the right places. These jeans admittedly are dearer, but from the minute you put them on you can tell the difference in quality and fit, and with the longer abrasion time, "not that I would want to test it out" gives you a lot more confidence should the unspeakable happen, put this with the great looks and it's easy to love these jeans.Read more
Short version: I wish I could find normal jeans that looked and fitted like these! Longer version - great fit (low rise though, but I like that). Solid build quality, very heavy but that's to be expected and also pretty reassuring given what they're for! Look great - really can't complain. Cons (sort of): The boot strap works well but could do with being a tad longer. It also takes some fiddling to get it out of the way when you get off the bike (pulls the jeans down further which isn't ideal when they're low rise anyway). Not a deal breaker for me though. The armour supplied was D3O, excellent stuff but the knee pads I got had no hook and loop tape on them, so I had to add some myself (just self adhesive hook tape). Lots of scope for positioning the pads though, so again, not a big issue. I'm using the Richa belt loop to provide a connection zip...but the position of the two central belt loop on the jeans means I can only use one of them with the loop.Feels a bit odd when on the bike...slightly off centre...but again - not a real issue for me.Read more

Product VideosResurgence Voyager Overview
Resurgence Pekev Voyager Jeans - VintagePekev Technology
Resurgence Gear have developed the 3rd generation fabric Pekev; one of the strongest and stable fabrics available. Made from the world's toughest polymer with the highest tensile strength in yarn, Pekev has raised the standard in terms of protection, pushing the limits of Aramid and Ethylene fibres using the right spinning techniques to improve the tensile strength then converting them into fabric with the right blends. In comparison to other aramid fibres, Pekev is thinner, lighter, and stronger. In addition Pekev is more durable and stable being also highly resistant to corrosive chemicals with the exception of oxidizing acids. The fabric has extremely low moisture absorption and a very low coefficient of friction, is self-lubricating, and is highly resistant to abrasion - in some forms being 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. It is very resistant to water, moisture, most chemicals, UV radiation, and micro-organisms. So, drag after drag and wash after wash, where others fail to perform in durability and long life Resurgence Gear products perform for extended periods. The fabric has already been field tested internationally and is now is ready for motorbike riders around the world.

Launched in Canada at the beginning of 2013, Resurgence Gear entered the market with the innovative protective lining material PEKEV for motorcycle jeans, of which was the end result of around ten years material and design research. The team at Resurgence Gear became masters at their craft when they were developing motorcycle jeans for different brands; however, during this period of growth they soon became dissatisfied with the absence of style and substandard levels of protection that those brands were offering. As a result of this Resurgence Gear found themselves on a mission of designing motorcycle clothing that gave the highest level of protection that was both comfortable and stylish to wear.See all Resurgence products…
Questions and Answers
Hi - love the jeans but they came with D30 armour, not Knox - how do I get it to stay in place??April 25, 2019
We can confirm that Resurgence supply these jeans with D3O hip and armour inserts. The D3O knee protectors have 2 hook & loop patches on them, that secure to a hook & loop strip on the inside of the knee armour pockets. The strip is generously long, so that there is plenty of adjustment when securing the knee armour inserts in the desired position.
What make are the knee and hip protectors in these jeans?April 24, 2019
The armour is manufactured by Knox
