They are also very long! I have to turn them up twice for walking about,

There is also inside pockets on the hips to add more armour but it makes you look like you are a girl with big hips.
At £30 if you can still get them they are a bargain!
I got mine when they where reduced to £15
Yeah well noticed they do come in big and are quite baggy jeans, I can fit mine over my work trousers (just) but it means I am riding with some protection rather than none.
Maybe ALDI will release a slimmer style next year, until then I will keep wearing mine and report back.
Its just nice to be able to afford some protection and means no one should have an excuse for riding without any on the basis of cost.
I have about 5 different pairs of riding trousers and my ALDI jeans are getting more use than the others put together.
I am going to try and wash them with some paramo cotton proof, just to see off the odd shower or spray (report fidings soon)
