• Adjustable CE Level 1 knee armor comes standard and can be accessed while wearing to ensure perfect placement—but you’ll have to purchase hip armor separately

• Zipper attachment adds a bit of insurance for the hips and torso in a slide, but only if it is used properly on every ride (highly suggested)

It’s impressive how well the MotoGirl Moto Ribbed leggings are constructed. The outer layer is stretch twill, meant only for looks, and to be the buffer for the real hero: a full-coverage secondary layer of kevlar made for abrasion protection.

• Kevlar is stitched in place throughout the pants, so there’s no risk of bunching or getting displaced during a slide

• Crash tested by a close friend, these leggings held up at a spirited pace and produced no skin exposure

Protection & Safety

Another impressive package, especially considering the price, the Oxford Super leggings 2.0 have a similar fit and feel to the Moto Ribbed Pants. The outer layer is stretchy, covering an almost full-coverage secondary layer of DuPont Kevlar, which is fantastic abrasion protection.

• Kevlar layer is not stitched in place at the base of each leg, so there’s a small risk of bunching or getting displaced during a slide

• CE level 2 knee armor is included, but you’ll need to purchase hip armor separately

For under $150, the Oxford Super leggings offer great value.

Key Specs

Protection & Safety

• The DuPont Kevlar included in the secondary layer of the Melissa Skinny Jeans (in major and minor impact zones only) is heavy-duty stuff and will hold up to a decent slide at highway speeds—just don’t do the splits on the asphalt and you’re covered.

• CE Level 2 knee armor is included, but you’ll have to purchase hip armor separately

• Unlined sections of the jeans allow for increased airflow to help battle the heat and prevent fatigue

• High waist keeps more skin covered in a slide

• For $154, the Melissa Skinny Jeans offer good value.

• CE Level 1 knee and hip armor are included, giving these jeans a leg up on the competition

• The unlined sections of the jeans allow for increased airflow to help battle the heat and prevent fatigue, while an extra lip above the mid-rise waist keeps more skin covered in a slide

Protection & Safety

Leather pants are hard to find and harder to fit. For women who lean towards the curvy side (standard and plus sizes), these are both highly protective and designed to fit well.

• High-quality leather construction can withstand higher speeds and last the test of time

• DuPont Kevlar stretch panels add to the abrasion resistance factor of these already exceptional pants

• CE level 1 knee armor is included, but you’ll have to purchase hip armor to complete the impact protection suite

An essential pants-to-jacket connection zipper with an elastic waistband helps the pants to stay put even in a slide. The Raven Rova Phoenix pants offer great value at $403.

For $170, the level of protection you get is reasonable.

Black Icon Hella 2 Textile motorcycle jacket

Key Specs

• Pre-Curved Arms

Protection & Safety

The Icon Hella 2 includes a full suite of CE Level 1 D30® Removable Back, Elbow, and Shoulder Impact Protectors which are extremely comfortable when not absorbing impact energy.

As always, textile isn’t as abrasion-resistant as leather, so take careful consideration on your speed and riding surface when wearing textile. Pre-curved sleeves help reduce rider fatigue, while strategic venting helps protect against the heat.

Paired with a durable textile chassis, reinforced seams and high-quality craftsmanship, the protection level of the Hella 2 is worth every penny.

This jacket includes a full suite of CE level 2 armor in the back, shoulders, and elbows. Prepare to be extremely impressed by the construction quality in the seams and finishing detail as well.

Protection from the elements is limited, and there’s no reflectivity on this already dark jacket, so keep that in mind when riding at night. Because it is the least expensive full-leather jacket on this list, the Lolo gets a “great” value rating – the back protector is the only thing missing for an “exceptional” rating.
