Red route

Was out shoping the other day with a mate and saw red route jacket in J&S and liked the look of it but did not have the cash at the time, but since then lets just say i came in to some cash 20p to be exact, So was going to get me some Dragon jeans and a new jacket and was woundering if any one knew if red route stuff was any good.

After having a poke on the net it looks like they only use kevlar in their pants not on their jackets so was woundering what the hell "tough demin" ment?

And yes i could go out and spend a lot more on a jacket but next month I.e tomorrow My road tax on the car & bike, MOT  on the car & bike and my bike insurance runs out what was going on credit is now beind paid with cash

I have heard that they are substandard quality and protection wise compared to other makes. Hood are supposed to be very good and offer a custom length.

Draggin' are good if they fit but they don't really fit me properly.

I've got a pair of Hood jeans and would recommend them for fit and comfort.  As above they can make the leg to any size.  I can't  comment on protection from personal experience but one of the blokes out of fast Bike mag fell off doing a wheely and said they gave as much protection as he'd expect from leather jeans.  He's on there adverts too.  the textile Jacket i choose to wear is Weise brand.  Not the most expensive but good quality gear.

I usually wear 32 inch waist, but Draggin 32s I can't even fasten up!32 inch red routes fit OK though...what is the Hood fit like?

The leg is absolutely perfect, but when i bought mine i was a 34 waist,  and they fitted perfectly.  There a bit baggy now as i've lost weight as i always do in summer, as i'm out on the bike instead of sat at home eating!!! 

And do you normally wear a 34?

I like the look of their work trousers...work on the bike, jacket and boot change and straight in!

Can they?  I asked them a couple of years ago if they would make custom sizes (I hate baggy jeans - and  want a 'slim fit' leg) and they told me they did not.

I wouldn't count on Red Routes always being like that. From Riderz website 

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU MEASURE YOUR SIZE AND DO NOT ORDER ACCORDING TO OTHER BRANDS OF CLOTHING YOU HAVETHE REDROUTE JEANS ARE OFTEN LABELLED INCORRECTLY AND WE WILL SEND OUT A PAIR WHICH MEASURE ACCORDING TO YOUR CHOSEN SIZEI.E. ORDER A 34 AND WE'LL SEND A PAIR WHICH ACTUAL MEASURE 34 REGARDLESS OF WHAT LABEL IS ON THEM

They can make custom leg sizes; but it is only in terms of length. Bascially they will cut and hem it to any length you want; but I don't think they will change the tightness.

Meh. That's no big deal - even I can adjust leg lengths to suit! 

I have just got a pair of Hood jeans in 32'' waist, they fit me fine. Yes they are not as tight as standard jeans but they fit just fine. I am normally a 32'' waist anyway and find of all the ''motorcycle'' jeans these fit the best and look as normal as you will ever get. They are heavier than usual (of course) but i find with a belt or braces they don't fall down (a common problem i find with motorcycle jeans). All in all i think Hood deserve their reputation as one of the better brands out there.

It depends where i buy my jeans from.  34" - 36" dependent on retailer.   On the Hood website it tells you where to measure yourself then you input ya size and they do the rest.  Worked for me.FJS, not sure if they do skinny jeans or not.  They may do now as it seems to be the fashion.  i like baggy jeans myself so the Concept 2 suited me fine.

Lodonmun   I have heard that they are substandard quality and protection wise compared to other makes...     Ref. Red Route jeans...   Outrageous rubbish... How can you possibly comment on a product you no nothing about?? MCN have given them a glowing review for 1700 miles and a year of usage mate.   http://www.motorcyclenews.com/product-reviews/leathers-jackets-suits/200...
