As part of the Volcom Stone Made line, specific Volcom Brand Jeans feature S GENE® by Cone Denim® the patented technology that delivers breakthrough stretch performance and unsurpassed recovery. The secret to Cone’s S GENE® technology is their patented proprietary multiple core yarns that double the performance of the denim. With twice the power of normal stretch denim fabric, Cone’s S GENE® recovery is superior in its ability to retain its original shape, virtually eliminating “bagging knee” syndrome.
Almost all of Volcom jeans feature some amount of stretch that allows for complete mobility and pure comfort, a core tenant of the “Designed for Skateboarding, Recommended for Life” philosophy of Volcom Brand Jeans. So whether you are looking for a pair of jeans with the performance stretch that will meet the needs of your active lifestyle (offered in our Volcom Stone Made jeans line) or are just looking for better fitting more comfortable jeans, there is pair of Volcom jeans just right for you.
Currently exclusive to Volcom in stretch denim; the modern-fit Solver in the denim wash, regular-fit Kinkade in the Blue Drift wash and the Vorta Form jeans, feature sustainable anti-microbial finishes that allow for these jeans to be worn longer and harder between washes with less odor. With constant life on the road and the everyday abuses the Volcom Skate Team puts their jeans through, the designers at Volcom took it upon themselves to help stop the stench. Now life in the van is a whole lot less smelly.
Developed by Cone Denim®, who have been producing denim for 125 years, they used their expertise and experience to create a stretch denim with an anti-microbial finish using positive ions applied to fabric that effectively reduces odor caused by bacteria. This process, a first for Cone, creates a longer lasting bond between the positive ions and the denim fabric. Current tests have shown very little to no loss of the anti-microbial finish after 20 laundry washes.
In a similar process, but using silver ions, Volcom Stone Made chinos in the Stranger modern and slim tapered fit and the Gritter modern tapered, regular and slim fit also offer anti-microbial protection against odor.
While we pride ourselves on the durability of all our jeans and chinos, we’ve taken durability to the next level in the Volcom Stone Made jeans and chinos lines. The elevated durability found in specific washes of Volcom Stone Made jeans is the result of new innovations for denim fabrics that either feature yarns spun with LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology that combines stretch for freedom of movement with enhanced durability and resistance to tears and abrasions or CONESTRONG™ by Cone Denim® that utilizes a variety of yarn technologies to create high-performance denim fabrics with superior strength.
Volcom Stone Made chinos in the Gritter modern tapered fit are our most durable pair of chinos. Constructed from a more tightly woven canvas featuring 20% nylon 66, the Gritter in the modern tapered fit offers outstanding abrasion resistance.
You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for durability, all the Volcom Stone Made jeans that feature enhanced durability, whether provided by LYCRA® TOUGH MAX™ technology or CONESTRONG™ by Cone Denim®, still have 1% to 2% elastane stretch, perfect for skateboarding or at work on the job.
Whether battling the elements or just daily mishaps of a liquid kind, the water and stain repellent Vorta Form jeans in the Rinse wash and modern tapered Stranger chinos in the Volcom Stone Made line will keep you dry without sacrificing any comfort or breathability. Born from Volcom designers’ time on the road with the Volcom Skate Team, there was no end to varying types of weather encountered or spills produced while living life on the go.
Developed by Cone Denim®, CONEguard™ is a groundbreaking Durable Water-Repellant eco-friendly PFC-free finish applied to the fabric of the Volcom Stone Made Vorta Form jean in the Rinse wash that increases the water and stain repellency of the denim. Combined with its Form fit design, durability, and anti-microbial finish by Cone Denim®, the Vorta Form jean in the Rinse wash is a highly tuned piece of performance apparel.
Lab tested, the Volcom Stone Made chinos in the Stranger slim and modern tapered fits utilize 3XDRY® technologies that stimulate a cooling effect through the absorption of perspiration on the inside of the treated pant while improving dirt and water repellency on the outside. There’s a reason we call these “Journey Mode” chinos; they are ready to take on whatever trek you set out to embark on.
