This is my second pair of these trousers, having purchased a pair for winter riding a year ago. There has been a marked increase in quality for these latest trousers in the material & stitching. The previous pair were in two parts, the outer & a winter liner that zipped in. They had removable knee & hip protection built in. My experience over the year is that the seams started to fray & rip appart & they were not waterproof. These new items are soo much better, however are constructed as a single unit ( no double layer ). This is not a problem as they are sufficently thick. They are waterproof as tested on the road. I have a 38" waist & 32" inside leg & wear these over my regular jeans so I bought a 40" waist with the long leg 34" which are perfect, not too tight & easy to get over my motorbike boots. These latest haveremovable knee protectors, two waterproof zipped pockets & the legs unzip fron top to bottom, secured by velcro. Would buy again. Update..... Was taken out by a ca
Ok so first, I bought these one size bigger and when I put them on I thought they were huge, but the adjustable straps mean I can tighten then up to fit nice and snug. I recommend buying 1 size too big so you can wear thick trousers underneath as well as work trousers. The trousers are warm and well constructed with two small side pockets and zipped outside legs for getting them on and off with ease. Knee pads are sound and whilst there is no hip protection, they do feel robust. I am tall and the long leg is great as the trousers still cover ankles when in riding position. I have not worn these in rain yet but they do offer much higher level of wind protection than my armoured Jeans. For the price these are a great trouser and they make it simpler than having to take armoured jeans to work with me and have to change. You would not want to do too much walking around in these, especially on days 20 degrees + I put them on in the garage and take them off as soon as I am
For the price, they are fantastic. £40 and they're still going over 2 years later, being used on the daily 15 mile commute. The velcro on the fly has started coming off but the zip and press stud mean it's not an issue. They've gradually got less waterproof and they never kept out HEAVY rain, as water would get in down the side zips. I only ever used the side zips once. The velcro and super long zip is way more hassle than just removing my boots and sliding them off. They have a nice smooth material on the inside that makes taking them them on/off over your clothes a breeze. They are decently warm when used correctly as over trousers. Then fit over larger boots. The knee protection moves a little and in a crash I'm not sure it would stay in exactly the right spot. The material is fairly thick and I feel perfectly at ease commuting in them though. Not recommended for any motorways or higher speeds but for £40, they are better than I expected them to be.
