THE JEANS
FITTING GUIDE

Riding in motorcycle jeans used to be an exception. Today, it is rather the rule for many riders out there. And for a good reason.

Intro text

MOTO DENIM
RULES!

In the past, motorcycle jeans were mostly made of regular denim fabrics with some Kevlar® reinforcements at impact areas, offering little “real” protection. Today, motorcycle denims are as technical and protective as high-end textile riding trousers, and certainly as comfortable, so the only thing you need to look at is the wash and the fit. To make it easy, we've put together an easy guide on how to find the perfect motorcycle jeans for you.

WHAT’S YOUR TYPE?

First, you need to figure out what your body type is. We're not talking about your personal preferences here, but merely about your own body shape so you can determine which fit will look best on you. If you have an athletic build or if you're full-figured, we recommend you wear jeans with a regular fit (a straight cut is good for everybody and every body!) or a tapered fit (looser at the upper legs then gradually tapers as they reach ankle). 

If you’re looking for extra comfort, jeans with a loose fit (wider all around) are great as they're not baggy but sport a loose waist and straight legs. If you have a slimmer figure, you want to avoid looking like you're wearing your dad’s trousers! So, your best option would be jeans with either a regular fit or a slim fit.

REGULAR FIT 
The jeans most of us wear are considered regular jeans. They’re made to fit like the iconic Levi’s 501 blue jeans. These timeless fit jeans rest lightly against your upper legs without feeling too tight. From the upper legs down, these jeans sport a straight cut. REV'IT! Jeans with a regular fit are: Vendome 2 Jeans, Madison 2 Ladies Jeans, Lombard 2 Jeans and the waterproof Orlando H2O Jeans and Orlando H2O Ladies Jeans.

TAPERED FIT
Tapered jeans feel comfortable in the waist and thigh area, while from the knee down the model tapers, becoming narrower as they reach the ankle. They offer a more fashionable, contemporary look without the discomfort of being too tight. Jeans that sport a tapered fit are: Austin Jeans, Corona Jeans and Seattle Jeans.

SLIM FIT
Slim fit jeans have the least amount of fabric in the rear panels, and the openings at the ankle are narrower than in regular fit jeans. They are designed to create a body-hugging fit that ensures your legs have definition, without feeling too clingy. Our favorite slim-fit jeans are the Westwood Ladies Jeans; figure-hugging, stretching jeans that make you look as good on the bike as off the bike. Even though they were originally designed for women, we have a lot of male buyers and we can't blame them; they're super comfortable!

LOOSE FIT 
These jeans don't hug in any one area, and feel slightly wider all around, like a pair of classic Lee’s or Wranglers. Do not mistake them for baggy jeans, as their fit is mainly offered to add maximum comfort to your ride. Thanks to the combination of a loose waist and a straight leg, these jeans are easy to wear both on and off the bike. Examples of REV'IT! jeans with a loose fit are: Philly Jeans, Rockefeller Jeans and the waterproof Memphis H2O Jeans.

width first,
then length

First you need to choose the width of the jeans. That’s the most important thing. Don’t worry, we have our own sizing guide just like regular fashion denims to help you pick the perfect pair.

After that, you should check the correct leg length. The standard leg length is a 34-inch inseam. If you are not blessed with long limbs, there is a 32-inch inseam option, and if you’re taller than average, we’ve got jeans with a 36-inch inseam for you. Sizes are clearly indicated on the size labels at the edge of the waist. A label indicating W34/L32 means it is a size 34-inch waist and 32-inch leg length, also known as a size thirty-four ‘short.’
