Time tested Five months / 7500 miles What’s good Th­ese Revz jeans are prob­a­bly a lit­tle stylish for my lardy mid-40s frame, but they man­age to look good, even on me. The stretchy fit means they’re un­flap­pingly well-tai­lored, as well as snug over race boots. They are able to ac­com­mo­date en­duro boots, too. There are builtin hip and knee pock­ets ready for ar­mour if you like to have it, but I have to con­fess that I go with­out.

The ex­ten­sive lin­ing ma­te­rial comes in the form of the firm’s patented Roomoto MR4.0, which is a mix of knit­ted Kevlar and Dyneema – claimed to be the world’s strong­est fi­bre. The outer ma­te­rial, mean­while, is im­preg­nated with a sil­i­cone coat­ing to keep both filth and mois­ture at bay.

The fit and com­fort is su­perb, even af­ter full days in the sad­dle


and off it. The styling also means that you don’t feel con­spic­u­ously bikey if you’ve rid­den to the pub in them. My new favourites. What’s not The ma­te­rial is a bit, well, odd feel­ing. The sil­i­cone coat­ing gives them a tex­ture that makes them feel cold and al­most damp to the touch, even though they’re bone dry. Once you get over the ini­tial odd­ness though, it’s fine.

The style means they don’t look too bikey when you are walk­ing about Al­ways watch out for a gi­ant man in jeans when cor­ner­ing
