I’ve always preferred combats/cargos to jeans ‘cos… I dunno really, I just have – some people are natural jeans wearers, I’m a natural combats/cargos wearer… it’s the extra pockets, I think, s I rarely remember to bring a bag to put stuff in.
These new Warren cargos from Merlin are suitable for both on and off the bike – they’re made from a single-layer Cordura/cotton mix, which makes them much lighter and comfier than ones with multiple layers, and provide all the required protection without the bulk of a double-layer, and come with D3O flexible Ghost armour (that amazing stuff that’s thin and flexible, but goes rock hard when impacted) in the hips and knees as standard.
They’re lightweight, hard-wearing, comfortable enough for hours in the saddle, and all day off the bike, have the usual, and useful, thigh pockets, as well as normal front and rear ones, and are boot-cut to go over… well, your boots obviously.
