Ever wonder what would happen if the apocalypse came without warning, and you only had one pair of jeans left to wear for the foreseeable future? If you haven’t, it’s no big deal (and, also, totally normal) because Outlier has been working hard to develop a pair of jeans fit for the end of the world — the Experiment 024, made with Dyneema denim.
Originally developed to be worn as armor for motorcycle racing, and built to withstand up to four seconds of skidding across asphalt at over 60mph, it’s safe to say that Dyneema is some tough stuff. This particular denim used by Outlier is basically armor and was woven with two warps and one weft, with a traditional cotton denim outer-face weave and a rope-dyed Dyneema yarn with elastane core inner for the ultimate comfort and strength.
But don’t expect it to feel like your average pair of raw denim, because, frankly, it’s far from it. Being that they’re still dyed with indigo, however, these will still fade over time. Weighing in at a light to mid-weight 13oz., they feature a gusseted crotch and brushed stainless steel rivets, paired with an electrostatic rubber plated brass shank. Outlier stresses that this pair is strictly experimental, so wear at your own risk, and don’t be afraid to put them to the test.
Available for $450 at Outlier.
