There’s no doubt that jeans are the go-to pants for many riders—they look good both on and off the bike. But while normal jeans are easily shredded by contact with the pavement, Riding Jeans from Rev’It are built to protect. And to make sure there’s a style for you this season, they’ve added 13 new pairs of strong, padded jeans to their 2022 collection. There are four pairs for the ladies, and nine for the guys, representing five of the six fits they offer in their jeans range.
Rev’It was founded more than a quarter-century ago on excellence in design, performance, and innovation. Those guiding principles remain the cornerstone for a new generation of motorcycle riding jeans available in contemporary styles and washes for men and women.
Sewn from 12.5- to 16-ounce stretch Cordura denim, their CE-approved jeans are triple-stitched, with some styles bolstered by the PWR Shield lining in high-impact areas. To soften the blow at get-off, they also carry the company’s thin, vented, and flexible SeeSmart protection in height-adjustable pockets at the knees and hips. SeeSmart is CE-approved in its own right. A final safety feature is ScotchLite trim at the cuffs.
To help you choose the right jeans for your riding style, each pair also comes with a protection rating from A to AAA for impact and abrasion resistance, based on the company’s adherence to the EN 17092-3:2020 standard.
Ladies have two fit options: skinny or slim, in Black, Classic Blue Used, Medium Blue, or Medium Grey Used. Comfort Seat seaming runs counter to fashion jeans for greater freedom of movement and a better riding experience. A higher waist increases coverage and has a more feminine appearance. The standard length for women is a 32-inch inseam.
Men’s jeans come in four different styles: loose, regular, slim, and tapered, with color choices ranging from sand through numerous blues to black. Standard leg length for men is a 34-inch inseam. With so many options available, Rev’It Created a Jeans Fitting Guide that walks you through their various options. Examples of the various fits are below.
Rev’It Loose Fit – Philly 3 LF $230
This relaxed style leaves room to move around on any type of motorcycle, from ADV bikes to cruisers to touring machines. However, don’t mistake “loose” for baggy; this fit offers maximum comfort without leaving legs feeling like they are drowning in denim.
Rev’It Regular Fit – Lombard 3 RF $230
For those riders who like the cut and feel of traditional jeans, with a relaxed fit from the waist to the ankles, this timeless, straight-cut pattern rests lightly against the thighs without constriction. Pair them with Rev’It sneakers for a casual look.
Skinny Fit – Marley Ladies SK $180
Skinny jeans have the narrowest silhouette. They hug the hips, thighs, and calves all the way to the ankle. There is no flare or tapering along the leg, and stretch properties provide remarkable comfort and flexibility with a fashionable appearance.
Slim Fit – Victoria 2 Ladies SF $250
Looking for jeans that give legs definition without feeling overly clingy? Slim Fit takes the best of regular-fit jeans and streamlines the thigh to the ankle. These are modern-looking riding jeans with classic flare and a narrow profile.
Tapered Fit – Moto 2 TF $240
Choose Tapered Fit for freedom of movement. Designed to feel comfortable from the waist to the thighs, these jeans narrow near the ankles. The overall look is contemporary, without the discomfort of being too tight, even during longer rides.
