Customer Product Reviews
Bought these to pair up with Blade Jacket I had bought previously from Sportsbikeshop......totally not disappointed with either the product or Sportsbikeshop....First Class on both....I went a waist size up from my usual jeans size due to comfort and with having a 33inch inside leg the Long length is ideal size. Thermal lining is removable and has proven to be waterproof in medium rainfall so far......all round a great product and great price.
Initially I ordered the wrong size. ( who am I trying to kid 32 inch waist) sent back and replacements sent out by return. Great service thanks you SBS. The trousers fit very well and feel very protective, knee pads in the right place when on the bike. Waterproof in some pretty heavy showers. Can't comment on cold weather performance yet but they are thick so should be warm. I doubt they can be beaten for the price. Very pleased with them.
Not bad for the price
Firstly they look great especially if you're looking for some trousers without knee sliders. No Power Ranger looks here! Attaches nicely to my RST textile jacket too. Sizing is OK but they do stretch after a while. 36in waist was too tight and 38in was initially perfect. However after about 4months and some stretch the waist is now a bit loose (or maybe I've just lost weight!) but they still fit very nicely in the legs and are extremely comfortable on and off the bike. I'm 6ft 1in with a 33in inside leg and they are a touch short in leg length but fine if wearing a high sports boot. Surprisingly cool in hot weather, never got uncomfortably hot and sweaty and OK in cooler weather, but you wouldn't want to wear in sub 5C temps for a long ride! Certainly shower proof but any substantial rain and your inside leg and crotch will get wet through the stretch panels. Use a good quality leather balsam and these still look brand new after 4 months of daily use.
Very good buy
I bought these at the start of my bike training and have worn them since for about 4 months in both sun and rain. Haven't worn them in particularly cold weather but they've stayed totally waterproof during 4+ hour rides in medium to almost heavy rainfall. The fit is perfect, I got the same size as clothes I would buy from any old shop and didn't have to worry about sending them back for a different size (I'm a bit taller than 5ft11" and got M/32). Removable layer is really good for summer and I would imagine having the extra warmth in winter is more than enough as they are not even close to cold at the moment.
Excellent waterproof jeans
Very pleased with the pair of jeans. They are warm indeed and choosing the right size with make them snug fit and make you feel protected from rain and cold. For hot weather the inner liner can be simply removed. They survived light and heavy rain weather and kept me bone dry. Another great thing about them - if you have a RST leather or textile jacket, the universal RST zip will allow you to zip them together for better snug fit against wind, rain or cold. They only have knee protectors, so if you are looking for a bit more, you may want to consider getting additional hip protectors. Great product for its price. Worth considering.
These are my first RST jeans and they look great on and feels really comfy too. The only reason I didn't give 5stars is the fact is they were a tad too long when I haven't got my boots on. Guess I could have gone for the short (ordered the regular) just couldn't be bothered to send them back. Fits perfect otherwise and delivery was super fast.
