I often wear Kevlar jeans in hot weather, and I've taken two ~45 mph (sliding) spills on them onto pavement. Maybe I got lucky, but both times my flesh came away without a scratch. But the pants themselves weren't so lucky. They would certainly be useless if you were going to hit something hard. For colder weather I have a pair of Klim Badlands pants, and for more off-road oriented rides, a pair of Klim Mojave (in boot) pants. Both have armor at the hips, knees, and coccyx.
