Needed a pair of motorbike jeans with armour for the coming summer and came across Biker’s Paradise by accident while surfing the web. Ordered a pair of Rida jeans, and I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the product. Ordering on line was simple and delivery next day! Impressive! Found when using them that a pair of strong Oxford braces was needed. Having got a pair, all is well!

Excellent jeans at a bargain price compared to some I’d look at. I bought a pair for my wife and I, we have just returned from a 10 day trip to Corsica. Comfortable enough to wear all day everyday, warm enough to keep the wind off. Would recommend these jeans to anyone

I had been looking for a long time for a pair of armoured jeans for a trip to Spain and Portugal an after trying loads on at various places ended up at BP after the usual 'well we might as well we've looked everywhere else' and so glad we did its the first pair that fit right and feel right ..from first entering the shop to leaving you feel like a valued person not just a person to rip off they made sure I was happy with the fit that the armour was in the right place an comfy and they were shortened to the correct length professionally, an as it was hot (25'c) I wore them on the way home instead of my triumph ones(now in the bin) they were still warm but no where near as much....also looked at the leather jackets while there...damn well impressed with the leather and the construction …….prices are decent an fair as well I thought I could have ended up paying more for a inferior pair of jeans..just do your self a favour and go here for your jeans...

I was surprised at the quality of these kevlar jeans best I have seen and that includes some that cost more than double the price if you want riding jeans these are the best you will find

After ordering a pair of Leather jeans on line and finding them to be of superb quality (these where a small batch of jeans that had been made from thicker than usual leather so are going to last for years) anyway myself and wife took a ride from Liverpool to Bikers Paradise and it was like entering an Aladdins cave of bikers stuff, the main aim was to buy a pair of jeans but I got two of which also being a short arse they would be needing altering which I was expecting to be measured then posted on, but no they was altered there and then, I have since got a waist coat and can highly recommend Bikers Paradise to everyone

As per BRILLIANT service from the guys and gal's at Biker Paradise.
Well fitting jeans,that could be adjusted if required,(big thighs,small waist) armour where you need it and easy to move around and about in,I have a pair of Hood jeans,wich are fantastic protection wise,full kevlar coverage,front and rear,but find them hard work to do anything but walk around in and hot,especialy in summer. The Biker Paradise jeans I'v had now for a couple of months, fit the bill as far as movement and comfort,would have liked a slightly narrower lower leg,from the knee down as they do flap around a bit,but other than that. Buy a pair now....GREAT value and enough protection anda good fit.....and GREAT service from BP. Thank you.

Decided to buy these jeans with the quality that they are made. Lady in shop was really helpful finding the correct size for me and setting correct leg length and position of armour for my knees. Alteration was done while I waited (well why I tried on leather trousers). Wore at weekend round Scotland extremely comfortable. Told my brother in law where I got them from and he is going to pay them a visit now. Highly recommend a visit. I know I will use again.
Men's Rida Denim Kevlar Jeans
Paul Wyatt - Coventry (21 April 2016)
I don’t like leather jeans or textile trousers as I want to ride, get off and do what I came for without having to change or looking like a power ranger. So, I want the ubiquity of denim and the safety of riding leather and these jeans are, imo, not only the best in the market but also the greatest value for Kevlar jeans. I bought these jeans in 2010 but recently, my waist began to develop further and I had to consider another pair – temporarily, to see me through until waist returns to normal size! I like to really know the quality of my gear and wanted to know what alternatives I could buy. I began to look at the offerings at bike shows and in shops. However, I did first turn my BP jeans inside out, inspected and photographed them in order to compare against a possible replacement.
The greatest visual about these jeans is that you cannot tell that they are Kevlar lined jeans. There are no additional external seams to show where the linings are or where the armour pockets sit. They just look like a regular pair of jeans.
Made by Coventry artisans by hand, whilst the Kevlar material lining generously runs to below the seat of the jean, as with some far more expensive jeans, there is Kevlar material running almost the whole length of the jean from top to bottom at the front I have never seen so much Kevlar material in a riding jean!
These jeans are double stitched everywhere and with a thicker thread than any I have seen on other jeans. The denim is also the thickest I have found.
Unlike a lot of other jeans, these jeans are cotton mesh lined at the front – See COMFORT comments for reason. Also, if you turn up in person to buy your jeans, the length will be adjusted to your leg. If also buying armour, this will be inserted and adjusted so you end up with a custom fit jean at no extra cost. Apart from my commuting suit, all of my gear is custom fit as, how else can I expect it to perform when called upon?
Because of the mesh, these heavy trousers can be worn all day in the heat of the sun and cold of winter without any discomfort, excessive sweating or chaffing. I did have an issue about three years ago in that the Velcro on the knee had begun to rub through the mesh and onto my knee. After a chance return to the BP shop, I mentioned this point and was told to bring them back and they would be modified free of charge as this was a known, but rare, issue which had been subsequently designed out of later jeans.
The additional armour, if bought from Bikers Paradise, is Viscotec. If you research this armour, even on Wikipedia, I hope you would agree that there are only two types of CE certified armour the rigid stuff that meets the minimum euro standards and viscotec. For me, there is only one type of armour and it is Viscotec. This stuff is soft and pliable and when inserted into these jeans, at the knees and hips, you can almost not tell it is in place – you certainly cannot tell visually. It bends when you bend, it conforms to your body shape but it protects like no other and BP sell it for an absurdly low price, as well as building it into their jackets, of which I have two.
I have had the misfortune of testing these jeans in winter (2012). I came across a diesel spill whilst approaching the Chelmsley Wood Roundabout on the A452. I suffered a slide at 30(ish) mph after overtaking a vehicle. I sustained no bruising or abrasions – I have hip and knee armour. There was minor evidence that my hip had slid along the road as slight scuffing on the right hand hip seam could be seen but it was very minor and the stitching was firmly intact holding the two parts together.
Now, April 2016, I do have another brand of jean – free with a subscription to a MotorCycle Newspaper and made by the ‘Oxford’ brand. It is because of receiving these Jeans that I felt compelled to write my experiences about the excellent Bikers Paradise pair that I love and miss. I will buy another pair in the near future…if my waist refuses to shrink with a new exercise regime but I really hope I can make them fit again. The BP jeans really are the best quality, value and performing trousers I have ever owned. But, they should be as they are made by skilled British machinists. They were custom fitted in house and are built to the highest standards using the best materials and protection. They were designed and built by bikers who design, make and sell biking gear. Lastly, they look and perform like jeans but they really protect when you need them to, after which, they get back to the job be being jeans again. Find a pair of textiles that can honestly do that?

Michael - Bicester (15 December 2015)
Bought these in September 2015 before later deciding on leathers, Sturdy, comfortable even with the armour and a good fit. Others I had seen were very thin by comparison or twice the price! Wash well too - no shrinkage. Recommended.

Keith - Derby (24 August 2015)
Recommended by a friend who has used Bikers Paradise for ages. Really heavy duty, confidence-inspiring denim, and very comfortable. Altered to a perfect length while I waited and fitted perfectly. The armouring is really tough, not like the cheap versions in other jeans. Can't recommend them enough. Had them a year now, and they've washed brilliantly almost moulded to me and still look the biz. But with complete confidence.
