A while ago, I can't remember when, I bought a pair of cordura biking trousers. These are the sort that replace ordinary jeans. They are waterproof and come with knee armour.
I "found" them in the wardrobe and they still had the labels on. I have no idea where they disappeared to and how long they have been in there.
As rain was expected I decided to give them a go. Amazingly they fitted and were pretty comfortable.
After last week on the trip to France when it rained for over half the trip, and I wore my Kevlar lined cargo pants and Held waterproof over trousers, and was uncomfortable I was actually looking online before I found these.
I wore them for a total of 93 miles on the bike plus over seven hours standing watching the BSB racing. The only problem is that they have a gusset affair at the front instead of the normal zip or button fly. Going to the loo for a Number One is none too easy.
In the end the were comfortable and waterproof. The knee armour is a little strange as it is a little lower than where my knees are and I hitched them up a little but on the bike they seem like they are in the right place. According to the website the armour is adjustable. I need to investigate how that works.

P.S. I just added the "labels" and ARMR-Moto came up. The mystery of when I bought them is solved - November 2016!! See http://invictamoto.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/new-trews.html
