Knox Trooper Shorts MKIII - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Bought these shorts predominantly to wear under my one piece race suit for a bit of extra protection on track days. They fit perfectly and the hip armour is in exactly the right place. I was a little concerned of them being too bulky but they were fine albeit I did have space in my suit. They are super comfortable on and I now wear them when ever I go on the bike regardless of what protective clothing I wear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
