Tested for 12 months / 3000 miles by Mike Armitage, MCN Magazine.
"Riding jeans seem a cracking idea. You get protection while you're on the bike, yet they're more comfortable when you reach your destination. I've always found them a compromise, though. Get a pair that look like regular jeans, and you sacrifice safety; but going for proper protection means heavyweight linings, obvious seams and armour, and beer garden discomfort. But these genuinely do it all.
They're single-layer denim with a slim straight-leg cut, barely weigh more than Levi's, have plenty of stretchiness, and show nothing to suggest they're riding clobber.
Thanks to Kevlar in the weave they have the highest AAA protection rating, and they come with discreet hip and knee amour, which can be adjusted. I have my cake, and I can eat it."
