Fen T: Impressed!
My initial impressions are positive - comfortable, look and feel like a heavyweight pair of jeans. Much cooler than lined jeans or Revolutions in warm weather. I was pleased to see that the stonewashed creases are much more subtle than in the photos. A word on sizing - I normally wear a 31" or 32", but the 30" fit me perfectly: they have a bit of stretch, which helps. I haven't tried armour in them, but the pockets on the 34" inside leg line up nicely with my knees (I am a 32" inside leg in jeans).
Chris Campbell: You get what you pay for.
The first bike jeans I've ever had that aren't an uncomfortable, ugly mess off the bike. Eye-wateringly expensive, true, but there's no way back!
Fergal Power: Pricey but so worth it
Having owned a pair of Rokker Revolutions for several years and being constantly amazed by them, once I heard there was and even lighter version on the way i decided to buy them for a 10 day trip to Spain, where I expected to meet higher temperature than here in Ireland. After 10 days and 3000Kms in temperature ranging from low 20s C in the North to 36C in Seville (In Oct) I have to say i was very impressed.. Extremely comfortable throughout and appeared to be a little cooler than the Leathers my Friend was wearing when stuck in 36C and traffic. They are still not exactly as light as normal Denim jeans so don't be under any illusions but that's not to be expected, especially if they will live up to the claimed levels of protection. I swapped over the D30 impact protection from my pair of Revolutions in a matter of seconds and the fit was perfect. Like I say the Revolutions are simply amazing but i thought they might be too hot for temps above 25C so for summer months and summer touring on the continent I'll definitely be using the Rokkertechs. Fast delivery too.
John Currah: Impressed!
These are extremely comfortable jeans, and feel just like a regular heavyweight denim. Much cooler to wear than a normal Kevlar lined jean, so ideal for warmer days. They do fit large: I normally wear 31" or 32" waist jeans, but the 30" are spot on for me, even taking into account the movement needed on a bike. The stretch in the fabric helps in that regard.
David Bailey: Mr
The best single layer protective jeans bar none. Slimmer fit (but not skinny) so look great off the bike. I also have the revolution Rokkers which were a 38 waist and the same fit in the Rokkertech slim was a 36 waist. I bought the long leg size but even for me (6’6 tall) was a little too long. Because of the construction you could have them altered easily though. Wish they did a few more colours!!!
Stephen Cockayne: Excellent
They fit brilliantly feel really nice on and I think they look great. I haven’t worn them on the bike yet due to the weather, but I’ve worn them out just as regular jeans several times, which I think speaks volumes. I don’t think the knee pads will ever get used as they don’t really work for me, but I am absolutely delighted with these jeans anyway.
Chris Hall: Mr
I got the same size as my Revolution jeans and they did come up a bit larger around the waist but when sitting on the bike they fit really well and are much more comfortable in the heat. They came without the armour that came with the revolution jeans but they also came with a Rokker brand T shirt and a small canvas bag which will be handy when on trips. Yes they are a lot of money but I think the level of protection given is excellent and I like cut and feel of them.
Ian Johnston: Superb Jeans
Just reiterating what’s been said by numerous others. Jeans feel very close to normal jeans and look like an everyday jean when worn. ( I should say mine were quite faded on the thigh and not as ‘blue’ as they look in the pictures if that means anything) Again re sizing I opted for 31” waist with 34” leg. (Normally a 32” waist, I might have got away with a 30” waist but not an issue). Expensive yes and I’ll be paying for mine for a while yet, but I reluctantly have to agree that they’re worth the money. Highly recommended.
