Just the job to fit under my biking jeans, which only have knee protection. Snug fit, and lots of protection, yes, would highly recommend these as an addition to your biking jeans.

A useful addition to biker jeans.

The only biker jeans that seem to offer hip armour pockets are the style that your dad would wear. My jeans are to die for, but had no hip armour pockets. I was about to return them when someone mentioned these shorts. The fit is sooo comfy and don't feel particularly bulky, and by going up a waist size, my biker jeans fit snugly over them. I am unaware of them when wearing, they are that comfy, and I have the reassurance of their protection as a bonus.

Knox quality

Great product as always from Knox seem well made and certainly feel more protected I ordered large for a 34 waist but exchanged for xl as legs were very tight and I have skinny legs.. as usual first class from sportsbike shop

Never too much protection

Excellent item. I bought these as extra protection for especially around the hip area for when I'm wearing textile jeans. Not too bulky, elasticated waist and also some mid-thigh protection to help with abrasion resistance if the worst happens and you come off. There is an extra bonus of some padding in the groin and seat of the shorts to help with long days in the saddles. Overall I would recommend but they will be tight under leather trousers if your leathers are already a snug fit.

Ride with confidence

Bought these for comfort and hip protection under my Oxford jeans on a 10 day tour in France Andorra and Spain. Excellent quality and comfort gave me confidence as well, lovely bit of kit.

Great comfy pants

My Dainese mesh trousers have no hip armour at all so I thought I would try these, they are comfortable & fit as normal size pants, the armour is thin enough to wear under jeans & certainly gives a sense if protection although I don't want to test them for real! They have a rubbery grip on the inside to stop them moving up your leg & that works really well. in short great pants (expensive for what you get) but definitely better than going "commando" with no protection.

Nicely styled

Discrete and may give me the edge of the worst happens. Nicely styled and fit under my Kevlar jeans.

No complaints

Wanted some bike jeans but did not only want one pair so decided to buy these with the Knox knee pads and can now wear whatever jeans I want. These are very comfy and you do not know you are wearing them.

Good product

Purchased these because I couldn't find any motorbike jean that looked good and gave me a good level of protection. Wearing the under armour means I can wear my normal jeans without worrying. Well made with good quality pads in the right places.

Good product but split wast band

The armour is good and the pants fit well and they are comfortable to wear all day long but the seam on the elasticated wast band has split where it joins on only the third time of earring. So am sending back. If this had not happened it would have been full marks.

Worth the bit extra

Originally bought a pair of cheap ones off e-bay which to be fair worked well, saw these and thought I'd try them and boy what a difference, softer armour, more comfortable fit and all armour is removable. Bought to go under jeans for which they are great.

To go with jeans

Well made and fit nicely under some Dupont lined jeans. Feel like they will give the same protection as my leather jeans.

I purchased these shorts to give me more protection when I ride with jeans on. I feel they offer a good balance between being comfortable and good protection. Would recommend. Great service from SBS as usual.

Quality item

Really comfortable. Unseen under normal trousers. Another quality item from Knox.

Perfect product

Great fit, and whilst providing the right protection, they are streamlined enough to fit under non-riding wear.
