PMJ Legend jeans £209.99 www.promojeans.it
PMJ JEANS ARE made using TWARON, a ballistic fabric with high heat and cut resistance, no melting point, low flammability and which is used in the production of bulletproof vests. So that’ll be ideal for when you chuck it up the road at 60mph then...
The build quality of these jeans is excellent; from the 12.5oz denim outer, to the Coolmax lining and the TWARON panels, there’s nothing out of place.
Even with this level of protection, they still manage to be lightweight enough and have the flexibility to be all-day comfy. They look good too and not even just in the context of bike jeans. There’s no horizontal stitching around the knees, and the cut is great, so they look just like a set of posh designer jeans.
Although there are more protective examples in the PMJ range, for me, the flexibility, cut, style and comfort make the Legends the best of the bunch. Oh, and you also get a belt included with them. LEE SKELLETT
