Time tested: Two months/1500 miles

What’s good? At £200, these are a stylish addition to the Draggin Jeans range and are a welcome alternative to so many pairs of grim, stone-washed armoured riding jeans that look like a costume prop from a 1980s East German spy drama. They’re comfortable, come with removable knee armour and Kevlar in the lining for abrasion protection. Having a large number of belt loops also means they don’t drop down when I’m sitting in the riding position.

What’s not? I’m a very average 5ft 9in with a 34in waist, so the length of the legs surprised me. The turn-ups are very turned up as a result, which isn’t a problem but it was a little unusual. They are quite pricey and I still change into regular jeans if I am stopped for any length of time as the thickness of the material means they are too hot to sit in all day
