Surprisingly comfortable, and definitely feel like they would hold up in a slide. Will also keep your legs warmer than a usual pair of jeans. The free knee armour is a bit awkward to get used to but I'm glad it's there - extra piece of mind. Although these are no 'skinny' fit they are slimmer than most Kevlar jeans. You probably wont find any skinnier ones that offer this level of protection. The leg length is way too long and from what I see it is the same regardless of waist size. This is a shame but can be resolved by rolling them up or tucking them into your boots. Very happy with them.Naren Prasad - Bury St. Edmunds
Tested on day one, and passed
Brought this bag for a recent trip to Bristol (leaving Cambridge). Half way through the ride the rains came, all dry and good on arrival. Attached to the bike good a tight, all together no issues, good useful piece of kit.Duncan Freeman - Cambridge
Comfortable and breathable
The Alpinestars gear really is good. I bought this in union with the KR1 back protector which allows you to connect both together, like a backpack. It zips apart in the middle to get it off easily and there's plenty of small holes for air flow. Comfortable.Christopher Kerr - East Whitburn
I reviewed a number of back protectors before settling on this one. CE LEVEL 2 which is better than 1 and offers lower levels of energy transfer which is what you want. It contours perfectly with you're back and after you've had it on for a few minutes you forget it's even there. Goes perfectly with the KRC and you can attach the straps to have a complete chest and back protection unit. Delivery timings excellent.Christopher Kerr - East Whitburn
Excellent bash hat
This crash helmet is really good, I like the look and it is very comfortable. The added flip down sun visor is a genius idea. I'm not sure how well the plastic lever for the visor will hold up but so far so good.Anton Howard - Wellingborough
