REV'IT! Newmont LF Jeans
The Newmont LF motorcycle jeans have been designed in a way most people consider “loose,” but in fact, they are so much more. They have a AAA CE certification level and therefore are highly protective; giving you peace of mind while cruising the city streets.
The washed fabric will make it look like your everyday jeans that you can wear whenever, wherever. The inside is finished with a light blue fabric to create a high-end denim feeling. It doesn’t matter what type of motorcycle you ride, they are designed in a way that takes multiple riding positions into account.Pockets:

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 just a bit larger than the stated waist size (about 1” in the smaller sizes and about 2” in the bigger sizes which is typical vanity sizing). And of course, these are denim and may shrink just a tad too. The jeans have SeeSmart hip protectors installed. 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 buy 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. 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 inseam lengths measured out about right as compared to the stated size, BUT there are a couple of considerations here… first, these jeans come standard with knee armor and the knees are reinforced with a layer of an abrasion resistant material. Those two features add a bit of thickness and when you sit, that means the inseam gets a bit shorter than you might expect. You’ll also want to decide if you want to roll your jeans up at the cuff or not. Many people do, so add some inseam if you want to do that. Also, there is a reflective strip on the inside seam at the bottom that only shows 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! Newmont LF jeans are a loose fit riding jean that will pair well with just about any jacket for urban and commuter riders.
The Newmont LF jeans are made from a 16 oz. Cordura® denim that offers quite a bit of 4-way stretch. The LF = Loose fit style of this pant means the stretch isn’t really necessary thanks to the fairly boxy and straight leg cut, but it does had a level of comfort and flexibility. Externally the jeans have the appearance of a typical designer jeans with two hand pockets and two hip pockets and a fifth pocket in the right hand pocket for change or keys. There is nothing to give away the protection that lies beneath.
The protection in the jeans comes from that Cordura® denim with safety seams that provide good abrasion resistance for slides. This denim is overlaid with PWR shield material in the seat and in the rise of the pants down to the knees for even more abrasion resistance and protection. The pants also use REV’IT!’s ultra thin and flexible SEESMART™ RV36 CE level 1 armor on knee and the 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. All this protection comes together to give the Newmont LF jeans a AAA CE rating, which is a level that is normally only achieved in high end racing leathers! You can read more about CE ratings here. These jeans are the loose fit AAA offering, if you want a more slim fit AAA rated style be sure to check out the REV’IT! Reed SF jeans (see related products below).
The REV’IT! Newmont LF jeans are a good choice for urban and commuter riders that are looking for a highly protective jean that they can wear comfortably all day. Just remember they are slightly vanity sized with a straight leg and size appropriately! :: Mike, 08/15/2022
