When you were a child, did you ever have a favourite pair of trousers or a top that you would wear to death and never take off? Well, my MotoGirl leggings are mine. I bought them in February and I have worn them pretty much constantly since.
MotoGirl Leggings Review
These MotoGirl Leggings are stretchy and come with knee armour and optional hip armour. They have pockets, loops for a belt and more importantly are completely lined with Kevlar. This is unlike some biker jeans which only have Kevlar lining on the main impact areas of the groin, hip and knees. Definitely reassuring if one ever has a tumble.
I have practically lived in these leggings all summer and wouldn’t be without them
The main advantage of these MotoGirl Leggings is the comfort factor. They come in three length sizes, so as a short person they fit me perfectly and the knee armour is in the correct place. They come in a range of sizes from size 4-28, which is refreshing when considering that many manufacturers seem to think women are all size 8 with long legs! I have practically lived in these leggings all summer and wouldn’t be without them. Because they are stretchy they will accommodate small fluctuations in size- say perhaps you suffer from bloating.
There are a couple of niggles with these leggings. They are thick and this is because they are protective, so can still be quite warm in the sun and the knee armour can get quite sweaty. I dealt with this by wearing Merino wool leggings which absorbed sweat and stopped the leggings from feeling sticky. This also reduces the need to wash them so frequently. On the flip side, the thick Kevlar layer is plenty warm enough for cool Autumn days and only needs me to switch to other textile trousers when it rains.
The other issue I have noticed is fading which is due to wearing in the sun and occasional washing, even at 30°C on a delicate cycle as per care instructions. This is a cosmetic issue however and doesn’t affect their effectiveness.
All in all, I wouldn’t be without these leggings, they are so comfortable and have the reassurance of being fully lined with Kevlar and armoured.
I hope you found this Motogirl Leggings review useful.

Hi. Just thought I’d ask how you find them for size? Are they true to size or do I need to buy bigger. Bought an 18 but lord they look smaller! Not tried o yet a it’s bloaty week !
Amy advice appreciated from a fellow shorty biker xx
Hi Tracy I found them true to size and I have a 27.5inch inside leg and they are the perfect length for me in short. They do look tight but they are very stretchy and will give a little. If they don’t fit Motogirl are very good about exchanging them for a different size 🙂
Just bought my second pair, going touring for a week so thought two pairs would be perfect. Can’t rave about them enough. Look better than most biking pants and are comfy too. If I had to be picky, I would like a zip or a fly opening to get them on. I’ve practically dislocated my thumbs yanking them up. Small price to pay for the safety and wearability of these excellent pants
De legging zit ideaal maar voor de prijs verwacht je toch dat de kleur niet zou afschijnen.. . Heb deze nu 2maand en ziet er niet mooi meer uit.. Heel teleurstellend.. Ze is redelijk warm waardoor je net zoveel zweet als in lederen broek…
Translation: “The leggings are ideal but for the price you expect that the color would not shine … I have this for 2 months now and it doesn’t look pretty anymore .. Very disappointing .. They are quite warm so you sweat just as much as in leather pants …”
