They

may be made of kevlar, but it'll be craply knitted and the stitching will be shite.


you get what you pay for and in safety gear that's kinda important.

Good points

to take into consideration folks. Kinda put me off now, especially seeing as i've already got new leathers recently. I do want some kevlar jeans though for going to work during the summer (if we get one.)
si1981, I get the feeling I might get disapproving looks if I do a chainsaw test on them before buying but then again, if I time it right, when Aldi are also selling chainsaws....
BB, I don't think M&S or Harrods do bike gear although I could be wrong.

I

do want some kevlar jeans for summer riding as well but the decent ones are £100+ with armour. I do need to sort something as my tatty textile trousers don't go with my nice leather jacket.


Bugger, talking about clothes matching. I'll be on about getting a friggin' man bag soon.

I value my legs at more than £30. Cheap motorcycle gear, although cheap, is unlikely to give you the protection you actually require. So it's cheap because it's cheap, in more ways than one.


ALDI gear? No thanks!

does CE

marking imply some performance testing/guarantee?

I have grin factor and draggin kevlars, tbh the grin factors are probably better protected and have more, denser Kevlar

Cheap gear

is always on sale at Motorcycle superstore. I got a pair of Frank Thomas leathers for 40 quid, think it must be last years line they sell off cheap.
Mostlyslowly, the CE mark is supposed to signify that goods have passed some European standard but with the amount of fake stuff being sold, you could probably buy a CE marked burger and find it ain't what it should be.

Zander. Thinking about it, I bought a helmet from Aldi a couple of years ago and it was shite! Noisy, visor didn't seal and all my mates in the pub called me Darth Vader (cos it was black!)
I'm convinced now, I ain't buying Aldi's kevlar jeans. Wonder what they're like for polishing glass with though???

I know I've said it before,

but check out Hood jeans. They are made in England and they are better quality then any other make of Kevlar jeans I've seen.

If you're short of money stick a search on ebay. Sooner or later some will turn up.
