Okay, so I thought I was Mr Average build-wise but boy am I struggling finding some jeans to ride in.

I bought a pair of Bull-it jeans size 30 (my usual waist size) and they're huge - can't keep 'em up.

I went to MAS thinking they have a huge range, which they do but I had the same problem, size 30s in all brands = huge. I tried a pair of 28s for a laugh, thinking they may have very odd sizing but there was no way I could squeeze into those! I may have short legs too, as well as size 30s being very loose around the waist even the regular fit (couldn't find a 'short') seemed a good 20 - 30cm longer in the leg, though I appreciate I can probably deal with that if the knee protectors fall right.

Anyone share my problem in Australia and have a brand they find that fits?

I bought some Torque jeans from Aldi. They have been great. I think I am a medium - normally 32 similar to you. Yes, they are a touch big but on the bike with legs bent they fit well. Meet all the relevant safety standards and are full kevlar lined, not just impact zones. I tried Draggin first but they didn't fit. These were way less expensive and fit me better. Double bonus.

I have 2 pairs of Bull It Covec 4 jeans. Like you I am a size 30 and they fit very well. Mine are the "Dirty wash" style, I found that different styles they do fit me differently. Some too tight while the cargo pants are too big in a 30

Yeah, I have found all riding jeans are heavy and hard to keep up, unless they are well fitted every where. The speed and strength run with the bulls have been the best so far, cause of their skinny nature they stay up better. But they are less inconspicuous riding jeans.

I couldn't find a pair of Kevlar jeans that looked/fit decent. I ended up ordering a pair of Bowtex Kevlar leggings and you can wear them with any pants you want. They also have pockets for the knees and hip armor and are double re-enforced with kevlar in seat. Fit is pretty true to size. Anyway, check em out. http://1down4up.net/bowtex-kevlar-leggings/

I bought the Draggin Liners here in the US to wear under some old jeans I had which were 1-2" bigger waist than my usual size. Can also wear them under my goretex ski pants if it rains. Plus you can hand wash and air dry the kevlar which should help in the long run

Check out UglyBros available from SUUS in Melbourne (will ship, very good service). Awesome jeans and very, very comfortable if you have a slimmer build. I've tried all the rest and I'm onto my 3rd pair from this brand - they have various styles. I had a high speed off when wear the Kevlar lined ones and they did their job for sure (no blood anywhere :))

UK based, but Hood jeans will alter the fit for you. I have a pair and they are really comfy and fully lined, not just little patches of protection.

Can I be rude(ish) and ask what waist size you are Ace?
