Sizing Information

We measured a sampling of these jeans of different waist sizes and lengths and find they are much like other jeans you’d buy these days. They are just a bit “vanity” sized in the waist and pretty true in the length. Across the size run, the actual measured waist was about 1-2” larger than the stated waist size (typical vanity sizing). So my primary advice would be to buy the waist size you normally wear in jeans; you’ll likely find a fit. The inseam lengths measured out about right as compared to the stated size.

If you aren’t sure whether your jeans are vanity sized like I’m describing, then either measure your waist where your normal jeans ride or measure your favorite pair of jeans to verify. You’ll probably find that you measure out a bit bigger than your normal jeans size and also the waist of your favorite jeans measures out an inch or two bigger than their stated size. If so, you will be on track following my advice.

The overall fit is definitely “relaxed”. There is plenty of extra room in the seat and thighs. Just to give you a frame of reference, I’m looking at a size 34 waist pant here and the thigh measures 12” across (when laid flat just below the crotch) and about 7” across on the leg end.

Our Two Cents

The Ruto pant by NORU offers a relaxed and comfortable fit in a cotton jean with reinforcements in the seat and knees. Armor inserts are included for the knees and hip armor is optional.

We sell SO MANY riding jeans that I’d characterize as slim or skinny fit, it’s nice to be able to offer a jean that is squarely in the “relaxed fit” camp (see my size advice above). You’ll be able to sit all day in the saddle without complaint about the comfort here. The fabric is standard prewashed denim, and then NORU has added a reinforcement layer of Kevlar/Poly material in the seat and over the knees to improve abrasion resistance in those crash prone areas. Pockets are built into the Kevlar liner to hold the included knee armor units. The included armor is a typical molded rubber type. Fabric pockets are included for the addition of hip armor too (see the link below). I’d characterize the overall protection package to be on the lower end of the protection spectrum as compared to other riding jeans since the jean’s main fabric is 100% cotton denim which isn’t particularly protective on its own, but considering the very reasonable pricing here it’s not a bad value proposition, especially if you are a fan of a relaxing fit. :: Paul, 04-22-21
