REVIT Moto 2 TF Jeans
The Moto 2 TF (tapered fit) motorcycle jeans combine the best of both worlds. They’re motorcycle-ready, while at the same time, are spot-on when it comes to contemporary fashion trends. They feel comfortable at the waist and thigh area, while from the knee down the model tapers, becoming narrower as they reach the ankle.
Taking the fit of a leather motorcycle pants as starting point, these jeans are the perfect companion for longer rides if you like a more sportive look. The secret lies in strategically positioned stretch lips that allow for full freedom of movement on the bike and add to the Moto 2’s all-round style.Pockets:

We measured a sampling of these jeans of different waist sizes and lengths and find they are NOT vanity sized which is counter to what you would expect from most other jeans you’d buy these days. They measure out to the stated size at the full stretch of the waist and are pretty true in the length. And of course, these are denim and may shrink just a tad too. The jeans have pockets in the hips for the addition of the SeeSmart hip protectors (see link below). The hip armor is quite thin and flexible so I don’t think they’ll make a difference in the size choice of jeans if you choose to wear them. So my overall advice would be to go up one size from the waist size you normally wear in jeans; you’ll likely find a fit. 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. Again, casual jeans and most riding jeans these days actually measure out about 2” above the stated size but this style does not! You’ll probably find that you measure out a bit bigger than your normal jeans stated 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. Or to make it even simpler, just measure those other jeans that you like and find comfortable and whatever they measure out to buy that size!
The inseam lengths measured out about right as compared to the stated size. You may want to choose a longer inseam than your ordinary jeans for a couple of reasons. First, jeans ride up your legs when you sit on a motorcycle so to maintain a good length, you can choose one size longer. Another reason to buy longer with REVIT jeans is the reflective strip they put on the outside seam at the bottom of the legs. That reflective material will only show when the ends are rolled. So with those considerations in mind I’d recommend you buy one size longer than you normally wear. If between sizes, choose the longer.
Our Two Cents
The REV’IT! Moto 2 TF jeans are a tapered fit riding jean that will pair well with just about any jacket for urban and commuter riders.
The Moto 2 TF jeans are made from a 15 oz. Cordura® denim that offers quite a bit of 4-way stretch. This is important because the jeans are TF = tapered fit and the taper through the legs mean the stretch will likely have them fitting very snugly around the lower legs. Externally the jeans have the appearance of a typical designer jean with two hand pockets and two hip pockets and a fifth coin or key pocket within the right hand pocket. The only give away that they aren’t your normal jeans is the accordion stretch panels above the knees.
The protection in the jeans comes from that Cordura® denim with safety seams that provide good abrasion resistance for slides. The pants also use REV’IT!’s ultra thin and flexible SEESMART™ RV36-L1-A CE level 1 armor on knee and SEESMART™ RV33 CE-level 1 armor at the hip. At the cuff, there is a reflective strip on the interior of each leg that is visible if you turn the cuff up and provides a bright reflection to other motorists. The jeans also have belt loops so you can easily integrate the REV’IT! Safeway belts (see related products below) for pairing with your favorite REV’IT! riding jacket. These jeans also have a mesh comfort liner through the rise to improve airflow between the body and jeans.
The REV’IT! Moto 2 TF jeans are a good choice for urban and commuter riders that are looking for a protective jean that they can wear comfortably all day. Just remember they are tapered fit and not vanity sized, so measure some jeans you like to wear and size appropriately! :: Mike, 08/15/2022
