Oggie76 Kevlar lined jeans

Recommended Posts

I wanted some jeans that I could wear on the bike for protection and then feel comfortable and stylish whilst having lunch or watching a gig. Something that would look right on a retro style bike. So I needed denim jeans.

I bought a well known brand first and the fit isn't great - very baggy, and waist is a bit tight.

The Oggie76 jeans had come up on ebay searches but seemed to cheap to be true. But they had a stall at Motorcycle Live (NEC) and I thought they looked pretty good quality. So I had a look through ebay to choose colour and size; they've got every base covered - blue, stonewash blue, black, stonewash black, light blue, biker wash black etc.

For £46 delivered including some CE approved knee and hip armour, they are great. The fit is better although the leg is a bit long. They seem really well made and the armour is a nice addition which I can swap into the other jeans which came without.

I think they manage to cut costs by reducing the amount of Kevlar lining they use - but the key areas are covered so I'm not too concerned.

They're only really available through ebay, and I suspect they'll struggle to stay in business but I'm glad to have them in my kit.
