Finding leggings that aren’t see-through is an arduous task. But according to customer reviews, Oxford have figured it out. They say these leggings aren’t sheer at all, and the Kevlar-backed material is thick enough to be protective without being bulky. Starting at a size 8 in three leg lengths (28in-32in), customers insist these leggings are flattering and comfy, which is reflected in a 4.9-star average from the first 122 reviews.
With an average rating of 4.9 stars from the first 26 reviews, these textile trousers from Oxford have been a hit. Several customers have noted the waterproof and breathable Reissa membrane has kept them dry in downpours, and the removable thermal lining has kept them warm. Reviewers were also pleased with the built-in braces, which has stopped the trousers riding down while off the bike. These trousers start at a size 8 with three different leg lengths (30-34in), but many reviewers found it necessary to order a larger size for the perfect fit.
These casual-style jeans from Bull-it have impressed the first 26 customers to leave a review, with many praising them for the amount of the stretch in the material - making them super comfortable both on and off the bike. The jeans come with removable CE Level 2 knee armour, which customers noted doesn’t appear too bulky and sits in the correct place. The jeans come with a high waist, which one reviewer praised as it helped keep her midriff covered while on the bike. The Bull-it Fury jeans start at a size 6 and come in three different leg lengths.
Customers have been impressed with the comfort, build quality and soft-touch fabric of these casual-style jeans from Bull-it. Despite these ‘only’ being denim jeans, several reviewers noted that they offer a good deal of warmth on colder days, without overheating on hot days. A handful of reviewers found these jeans fit a little small, but with sizes starting at a 6 and with three leg lengths available, there’s a better chance you’ll find your size.
