This is my second pair of these trousers, having purchased a pair for winter riding a year ago.
There has been a marked increase in quality for these latest trousers in the material & stitching.
The previous pair were in two parts, the outer & a winter liner that zipped in. They had removable knee & hip protection built in.
My experience over the year is that the seams started to fray & rip appart & they were not waterproof.
These new items are soo much better, however are constructed as a single unit ( no double layer ). This is not a problem as they are sufficently thick. They are waterproof as tested on the road. I have a 38" waist & 32" inside leg & wear these over my regular jeans so I bought a 40" waist with the long leg 34" which are perfect, not too tight & easy to get over my motorbike boots. These latest haveremovable knee protectors, two waterproof zipped pockets & the legs unzip fron top to bottom, secured by velcro.
Would buy again.
Was taken out by a car driver last week doing 40mph, ended up sliding on the tarmac. The material around my knee was badly ripped, however the protection stayed in place & saved my knee from damage. Not even a bruise on my knee. Already ordered a new pair.
