Oxford Continental 2.0 Textile Jeans - Black
Customer Product Reviews
My legs aren't long enough !
Great trousers, comfortable and warm. I got a small size as recommended and I am a 31 inside leg. However, the knees are lower than my knees so the protection is in the wrong place when my legs are straight. Once legs bent then just about ok. If you have shorter legs than me find another type.
Great pair of trousers, a good fit and easily adjustable. Only worn the these once on a recent cold day ride, very warm without the liner fitted. Braces do have a habit of sliding off my shoulders (but probably require some fine adjustment). On the whole, well worth the money.
Great Jeans just the job
Great bike jeans, took a while to adjust the knee amour as they were a bit low, easy enough though, Velcro pocket at front by bottom hem, in place now, tried them on about 6 times got them where I thought was right, wore them to work and just had to move the left knee down and left when I got in, wore the next day, perfect, as far as size goes I can say that I'm a 32/32 in Levi 501's so I got a small regular (32/32), and they fit like a glove, also added the hip protector, they are extremely comfortable, have water proof pockets both sides just above the knees which have a zip and Velcro and zip pockets on hips and they are nice and cosy even with the lining out, maybe this is a bit psychological although they also make you feel a lot safer, many thanks to SBS, highly recommended.
Unfortunately, poor quality
I only wore these trousers twice before noticing faults with them. One of the zips on the hip pocket failed and the braces started to fray. I may have just been unlucky but I had to return them and find alternative trousers. On the plus side they were comfortable and well sized.
First pair of motorcycle pants
The quality of the pants are good and there are a lot of pockets which is handy. I like the removable thermal liner also. Only thing I would say is that I ordered the correct length and waist size but the knee protection is very low (down around the shins and barely on the knee even in the riding position). I did manage to adjust them up higher to a better position but right now half of the protector is off of the velcro altogether so not sure what to think about that.
Best pair of trousers I've had so far!
Unlike many other brands I have tried these trousers are true to size and leave room for a back protector nicely. They also fit well when on or off the bike and the braces make comfort even better, removing the need to tighten the waist so much it pinches when sat down. Haven't tested how waterproof they are yet, but I'm sure they won't let me down.
ON paper it has all the credentials Plus: long leg version available, good outside pockets, acceptable armour Minus: heavy, thermal liner is not warm & too thin & it always gets caught up, not tailored properly but just thrown together; excess material, bulky, boot entry zip/ velcro poorly designed and the front zip is too short! at £100, it is a decent buy. Full RRP, look elsewhere
Comfortable, dry, warm
Great fit. Very comfortable. Keep me warm and dry. If anything they're a bit too warm. Probably best for winter. Nice and easy to get on and off. They do ride up a bit from the ankles when riding, and the knee protectors rub my knee a bit sometimes but these are minor complaints. Overall great value.
Good value, good fit and waterproof
I bought the Continental 2.0 jeans to replace my existing and not very waterproof textile jeans and I am very happy with them. My first ride was 170 miles, a lot of it in the rain, some of it very heavy and the trousers remained 100% waterproof. I ordered my usual waist size in regular length and they are a good fit although with the liners in they are a bit bulky but still fit fine. Because it's June and meant to be summer I have taken the liners out but have found you get a little sweaty at a standstill but better when moving and probably cooler again with the air vents open but with the weather I was riding in this was not possible to test out. I bought these at the same time as the Montreal 3.0 jacket and they work together very well. Sportsbikeshops service was top notch as always and I would happily recommend them to anybody.
