These stylish, well-fitting Richa motorcycle jeans have proved themselves over around 1000 miles of winter, spring and summer riding to be an extremely versatile, comfy, warm and often worn choice of motorcycle jean.
The fit is brilliant, my partner preferring the look of these Richa jeans over my older Held pair. A big win, as is the colour and feel of the Denim, no doubt helped by the Cordura material, a mixture of corduroy and Denim too strengthen and make the jeans feel extremely tactile.
Standard jean features include lots of handy pockets and a zip up fly, helping ease of use in all vital situations! Pocket stitching and the jeans branding looks impeccable and the jeans accommodate a variety of sizes of belt too.
Motorcycle features include strengthened stitching to aid safety, D30 armour in the knees and hips as standard, which is comfy to wear and texted to be protective if an accidents was to occur, which fortunately has not in my time with these jeans. There’s a smooth inner lining materiel helping dressing and undressing quickly and removable Denim loops around the feet to help hold the jeans in place whilst riding.
I can vouch for the warmth of these jeans riding from Lincolnshire to Essex and back regularly through the winter months and I feel confident and safe in the Richa jeans.
