The Modeka trousers arrived this afternoon - beautifully packaged in tissue and a sturdy box, and complete with complimentary pen and a packet of sweets. That was all so lovely - thank you. A world away from the testosterone filled biker shops that I have been to in the past!
The trousers are fabulous, and that was good advice of yours to go up a size. You're right - you definitely get what you pay for. I don't resent a penny of the cost of these. They are slightly too big, but I think 14s would have been a bit tight. At least I can breathe and move in these. And an added bonus is that they make it easier to get on the back of the bike - still ungainly and inelegant but at least I can get my leg over (so to speak!) without needing a hoist! We've been out for a test run all afternoon, around the Pembrokeshire coast, and apart from being stuck behind a Transit van in a narrow country lane at 20mph, it was brilliant.
Great service by the team - giving advice about sizing; the first pair of trousers( diff make) were too big, but the return was very easy and sorted out by Daisy. Then Emily helped to find an alternative trouser and recommended a size up from my ‘normal’ trousers. These arrived as stated and the modeka belastar (short) fitted perfectly and feel robust and with good protection and the length is perfect (I don’t have to have turn ups anymore!) Great service all round and answered all my questions - thank you.
