Bull-it SR6 Straight Riding Jeans

The Bull-it SR6 Jeans have a snug fit at the waist and hips. These straight leg jeans are suitable for inside or outside any boot. SR6 refers to the amount of abrasion resistance. SR6=6.26 seconds of abrasion protection. Compare this with 1.4MM cowhide's 5.8 seconds of abrasion resistance, and you'll agree that the Bull-it SR6 Jeans set a higher standard. Add in a water repellent finish, and you'll find yourself reaching for the Bull-it SR6 Jeans whenever you ride.

Features:

  • Traditional 5 pocket design
  • Leather belt patch with embroidered Bull-it logo
  • Covec sew in label in rear right hand pocket
  • Brushed metal matte finish button and front pocket rivets
  • Side and rear seam construction triple stitched
  • Genuine YKK locking front zipper
  • Inside waistband layer with Bull-it branded printing
  • Covec thermal barrier inside prevents heat transfer from road friction
  • 60% internal cover of Covec impact abrasion prevention layer
  • Knee and hip armor pockets for optional CE approved protectors (sold separately)
  • Water repellent finish

Bull-it SR6 Straight Jean in Oil Skin
I felt the need to update my pant gear for daily riding. After deciding on riding jeans over chaps, I researched several pairs with the hope of finding a protective pant that could be worn in everyday and work settings without sacrificing either function or style. When I saw the video for these and heard about the "Levi's" inspired design, they really caught my eye. I'm 5'9" and weigh around 190 lbs with a muscular build. Normally, I wear a 32-33x30 jean in Levi's, and the 34x30 fits great. Now, even though it's not the slim fit, they are slim fitting on me with the added layers under the covec material. If I get the knee protectors, I don't know if I'd have the room to fit them and stay comfortable. But, I do love the look as they do look stylish even with the added weight and material. I'm glad I went with the oil skin because of the plain black pockets in the back without the logo stitching. I'm sure these pants will offer great abrasion resistance and warmth in colder temp, however, I don't see them being very breathable in warmer temps. We'll see how this summer goes. I recommend these jeans, and the sizing chart is accurate.

Just what I was hoping!
Bull-it SR6 straight jeans in vintage, 2017. I am 6' 1", 205 lbs., measure 38" at waist with tape. I buy my Wrangler, 36W/32L, brand jeans at Wal-Mart. So, I ordered these in the same size and hoped they would fit?

Received these yesterday, and they fit exactly like my regular jeans. Perfect! Feel AND look AND wear great. I didn't rate protection/durability yet as time will tell. Give them a try if you like wearing jeans. No one will know they are special equipment. Have not received the protectors yet.

Comfortable, great fit
I purchased the 2017 Bull-It SR6 Straights after returning a pair of Rev'It Lombard 2s due to the strange fit. I've been riding in them for a couple of months, and recently added the Bull-It protectors in the knees and hips. For reference, I am 6', 185lbs and wear a 32/32 jean. I ordered the SR6 in size 32.

Pros:

These fit like my Levi's 514s. Even with the armor in there's nothing sticking out screaming "motorcycle jeans". They're comfortable, and I have no problem wearing them all day around the house or the office. The hem is a little longer than a standard 32" inseam, which means they don't ride up on your boots in the riding position. When standing, they will stack a bit.

The denim feels like - get this - regular denim, i.e. not stiff or heavy like the Cordura blends in other riding jeans. The mesh liner is soft - feels almost like a pair of flannel lined jeans. Because they're lined, these jeans weigh more than a pair of Levi's, but not so much that you need a pair of suspenders holding them up.

If you buy the additional armor (you need 2 sets to get armor for the hips and knees): the hip armor is completely unobtrusive, and while you can tell the knee armor is there when walking around it's not annoying or bothersome. When sitting, the knee armor stays in the right spot to protect your knee in the riding position, which was not the case with other riding pants I've owned.

Cons:

These jeans don't breathe well. I'm comfortable in them up to the low 80s F, but beyond that it gets sweaty.

Buying armor for hips and knees tacks on almost another C-note to the cost. I rated the SR6s themselves a 5/5 bang for the buck, but 4/5 if you buy the armor to go with them.

About the armor: because it's so soft and flexible, the knee armor may fold up in the pocket and require some finessing to lay flat. This only happens when you initially put the jeans on. Once you're wearing them, everything stays put. No problems with the hip protectors.

Minor nitpick: the decorative stitching across the back pockets is kinda tacky.

Conclusion: great riding jeans for spring/early summer/fall depending on your climate. You can wear these all day at work or going out and no one will be the wiser that they're protective gear, even with the armor in. They are warmer than regular jeans, so keep that in mind if you're looking for something to wear for summer riding.

First riding jeans
These are my first riding jeans, or riding pants of any kind, but I'm comfortable saying these are some nice jeans.

I normally wear 32"x32" or 33"x32" in jeans. I ordered the 32"x32" (or 32R) SR6 Straight jeans, and they fit fine. They felt a little tight in the legs at first, but I stopped noticing that after wearing them a few times. They do fit better if I pull them up about 1/2-1" higher than normal jeans.

The leg opening is a little smaller than I expected. They fit over my riding shoes, but I'm not sure if they will fit over my heavier leather boots.

I've ridden in them in temperatures up to the low 90s, and I didn't really notice my legs getting that hot. If you're moving, I think these are only slightly warmer than normal jeans.

Style - they look like normal jeans. I got these in the vintage color - they're a little darker and more blue than the pictures, but they might fade after a few washes anyway. They do have the bull stitching on the rear pockets, unlike the pictures, but it's not very noticeable.

I haven't added armor yet, so I can't comment on that. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase, and I'd probably look to Bull-it first if I wanted to get a second pair of jeans.

Great Pants
These are great pants that can be warn with or without the armour. They fit true and have a great look. I wear them to work on casual Fridays and get compliments on the style. I have not had the bad luck to test the pants in a skid and hope I don't have to, but they are well made and I feel they provide protection if needed.

SR6 Review
Took the jeans out for a 4 hour ride in the mountains this am. The fit is good- slim but not skinny. I'm 6'2" with a 33 waist. The 34 Longs fit comfortably. The other brand of armored jeans I purchased last year that were slim would not fit over my Stylmartin Legend boots. These do, but a bit snug getting over the top- but that's ok. They were a bit hot at 90 F, but almost all jeans would be anyway. Great riding pants when I consider the protection, fit, and looks.

Great value, style and protection for leg day fans
Jean Parameters:

• Fit -- Trust the size chart. These are NOT vanity-sized. I wear 32 in basically every pant from American companies. I measure 34" at the belly-button as per the tailor's tape. However, as a 5'6" 3/4/5-plate powerlifter, the hip and quad measurements were more critical. And the chart is spot on. A little extra room in the waist, but just enough to still be comfortable after a big meal.

• Cut -- Again, YMMV based on build, but these are slim, but not skinny, from waist to ankle. I don't know exactly what "straight" means in this context, because the leg definitely tapers from thigh to knee to ankle. Fits juuuuuust over a touring boot. They'd be at home tucked into boots as well. The taper I think would help keep the bottom hem, and also the knee protection, from riding up in a spill, if tucking into boots isn't your thing. Overall, a stylish and classic silhouette.

• Style -- The Cafe rinse is your standard, dark blue jean. No whiskers or "pre-fading." Minor points deducted for branding on the back. The Bull logo on each rear pocket, and again on the rear belt patch? Also, the belt patch has a bull, a stylized "17", and a Union Jack on it. It's all just a bit too busy. Though, I'm not really a "tuck my shirt into my jeans" kind of guy, so not much of an issue.

Moto Parameters:

• Abrasion -- Waist-to-calf full lining in Covec, whatever that material is. If the various abrasion test videos are to be believed, then these are a solid pick to protect your hide. This does have its drawbacks (see "Weather" below).

• Armor -- none provided. Snagged the set from my Rev'It touring pants. The knee armor fits just fine, doesn't interfere with the cut of the jean. Also snagged the hip pads from the same pants, but the pockets in these jeans are really tall, so the hip protection rides a little lower than I feel like they should. Your specific choice in armor may make this a non-issue. The knee pockets are also have incremental adjustability, compared to a two-position, high-low that I've seen on other pants.

• Weather -- Again, your bike, riding style, and personal tolerances may vary, but with the sheer amount of Covec lining, I would say this is jean would feel ideal anywhere from 50F-80F, tops. For me, it'd be tough to fit too much layering underneath, but maybe you could stretch that down to 45F with a thin enough base layer.

Value: Revzilla's favorite is the Klim Fifty1 or whatever. For $100 more dollars, I don't know how much better those could be. Since I already had armor to swap, these were a no-brainer for the amount of protection the full liner provides.

A little bulky but still comfortable
After hours and hours of researching riding jeans, manufacturers, materials, etc... I decided to make these my first riding jeans. Here's why.

The materials used to create Kevlar (I know that Kevlar is actually a brand like Kleenex.. just roll with it) have a shelf life that actually starts before it even gets to you. Flexing (folding, unfolding, refolding) wears down the fibers. Detergents also contribute to the breakdown of fibers. To me, the biggest problem is that you won't know when they have reached the end of their usefulness. Finding out after a crash is not an acceptable situation to me. So I went with Covec instead since it doesn't have any of the drawbacks of kevlar.

As far as the jeans themselves.. they are bulky. There is no denying that but it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would once I put them on. I didn't need a belt to hold them up and they didn't feel like they were weighing me down or trying to fall off.

Sizing: I bought size 36 x 32. When you button them, lay them flat, and measure them, they are 19.5" across. That equates to a 39" waist, which is what I have. When I put them on there is still a little bit of room that causes them to sit a little lower than normal but it doesn't bother me. The length is the same as my normal jeans, maybe slightly longer.

I had no problems getting the jeans over my Supertech-R boots.

I tested them the day after I got them. The temperature was 87 F. I rode the day before with the same temperature and the same destination but wore regular jeans. Both days were a combination of rural and urban riding sandwiched around a few hours of walking around outside downtown.

The first thing that I noticed was a benefit of the thickness of the jeans... they provide a bit of cushion for your knees when you grip the tank without reducing the amount of grip. It may also provide a little bit of cushion for your seat but I can't say for sure because I have a Laam seat that's already wicked comfortable.

Airflow... they don't allow as much air as regular jeans (the only thing I have to compare it to) but they do allow air through. I'll trade the reduced airflow for slide resistance that is equivalent to leather with airflow that I assume is superior to perforated leather. FWIW... I've also read that Kevlar significantly reduces airflow.

I ended up doing a bit more urban driving while wearing the Bull-it jeans due to trying to find parking. Even with the extra stop and go I didn't get uncomfortably hot. I didn't actually notice much sweating at all underneath the jeans even though my upper body was definitely sweating. I'm not sure how that works but whatever the case, my lower body was comfortable the whole time I wore the jeans.

Conclusion: I like the jeans. They're bulky but not uncomfortable. They allow some air through. It's not obvious that they're not normal jeans. I wouldn't hesitate to try wearing them even if the temperature was above 87 F. It's a lot easier to re-hydrate than deal with road rash.

Don't just ride safe.. ride smart too.
