If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see. Whether it's a question about sizing, quality or something else, our customer reviews are quite simply, the best place to start.

Click & Collect

If you can't be around to receive your delivery during the day, just use our click & collect option. We offer delivery to a shop local to you using the DPD Pickup network. Most pick up points are open outside of normal working hours and will keep your package so you can collect at a time to suit you.

We now offer free returns on any UK Mainland order (excluding Highlands) over £25. Most importantly, returning an item to us is super simple. Just click here or on the 'create a return' link located at the bottom of every page, and create your return in under 1 minute.

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Free UK Delivery

It's really simple, if you spend over £25 with us, delivery is free of charge to any mainland UK address (excluding Islands & Highlands).

Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

Very impressive

Great pair of trousers. Not as warm as previous trousers that I have had but still plenty warm enough. I commute every day rain or shine and these have kept me dry. The ankle zips are great as previous trousers (which I liked) used to always become caught in the zipper. Also the fixings at the waist are excellent and seem very robust. All in all, much better than I expected

Warm and dry

I've tried these trousers in very wet weather and didn't get wet at all. They're warm, comfortable and would recommend them highly

Held Vader Trousers

Good fitting trousers, not too long in the leg. Plenty of width at bottom of leg to go over boots and easy to get on and off with the knee protectors well secured so the dont snag on your feet. Not so good - pockets are far too shallow and they are not paticularly waterproof - 10 mins on M6 in torrential down pour and water seeped in but to be fair it even managed to get through a top quality goretex jacket. Despite this they are good servicable trousers that look as they will last.

Well made textile trousers

Well fitted and accurate to the sizing guide. Snug with the lining fitted and comfortable with it either in or out. Versatile design allows for legs to go inside or outside boots. All that and they look good too.

All made up!

I wanted waterproof matching trousers for my Held Zorro jacket (which is brilliant!) and these were the ones. Good heavy duty fabric with knee guards in place (a bit uncomfortable at first while walking, but great on the bike). They can be zipped to the jacket at the back, which on a cold morning is useful if slightly awkward until you get the hang of it. The zips are all tough, with velcro fasten downs. Behind the crotch zip there is an internal baffle to keep water out. You need to undo the velcro waist bands the first time, as the pants won't fit, but they are great for snugging the trousers up. The removeable lining is great on below 10C days. Frankly I am completely made up with this jacket and trouser combo. Really pleased. While I don't really plan on riding in the rain (weekend biker), it's good to know I'm ready!

Good value trousers

Nice fit, like the connecting zip to link to the Zorro jacket which, combined with the adjustable elasticated belt, eliminates the need for braces. Lining is very warm and comfortable after using summer jeans. Only tried the waterproofing in light rain, no leaks, so time will tell.

Bought an unlined pair of Rev'it pants last year and this summer they have proved about as breathable as bin bags, so thought I'd give these a try for summer touring. Have proved perfect so far, only encountered light rain so cant comment on how waterproof, but XL Slim fit me beautifully (36 waist 35 inseam) Look to be really well made but time will tell.

Good quality trousers

Well fitting trousers. Have worn them on some very hot days so far and they are nice and cool. Haven't been out in the rain and cold yet but I'm sure they will be up to the job. Ordered online and arrived very promptly as usual.
