I rarely ever wear my full Kevlar lined Jeans, I feel most safe in my Leathers, 2nd most safe in my Cordura outfit that is also very well armored, Kevlar jeans....... not so much.

Each to their own though.

My advice is buy the best quality you can afford.

cheers

Ooh, I figured out how to quote somebody lol.
My friend gave me some of his stuff (pictured). I'm not sure I'll use the helmet as my Shark Evo-One 2 protects the chin area.
The leathers & boots are pretty comfy though.
The jeans I ordered are Paranoid Road Skin:

They have good reviews & impressive videos of YouTube.

I just splashed most of my money on a Jaguar so need to either take a loan out or save up to get a bike now.
My Volvo has 225K miles & started feeling like it was on the verge of breaking, I need a car to take the family out.

I've seen some cheap bikes I could start on, will try to save up over the next few months.

Cheers mate &#x1f44d;
