Product review: EDZ neck warmer

EDZ neck warmer, £10Time used: 10 years What’s good: This is right up there as my best, most-used piece of riding kit and has been my trusty companion for the last 10 years. This exact model doesn’t exist now but the current EDZ ‘extra warm thermal neck warmer’ is the closest thing. It’s comfortable, warm and keeps the wind off ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars GP Pro

Alpinestars GP Pro leather jacket £429.99Time used: One year What’s good: This is a beautifully made and comfortable riding jacket, which is half of a two-piece racing suit. I wear this jacket with jeans generally, but sometimes use the leather bottoms for touring. It’s snug fitting and the 1.3mm full grain leather has a really nice satin finish to it, ...

Boot review: Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex

Alpinestars SMX Gore-Tex boots (now superseded by SMX Plus Gore-Tex, £299.99)Miles covered/time: 10,000+/five years What’s good: I’ve been wearing these very durable waterproof boots for five years. I use them for my daily commute and on biking holidays. They’re warm, fully waterproof, look great and are lightweight enough to wear on a sports bike, even on track. They even have ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket

Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket (superseded by Quick Seal Out version, £89.99)Time used: Six years What’s good: I’m not a huge fan of textile bike gear, I always find it a bit ‘frumpy’, so most of the time I either wear leathers or a leather jacket with this waterproof jacket over the top. You get the full protection of leathers and the ...

Helmet review: Arai RX-7 GP

Arai RX-7 GP. £649.99Time used: Three years What’s good: This is my everyday lid – the classic white with a black visor combo. I save my Rich Art painted Arai for road testing duties, but this is what I use the rest of the time for commuting, long bike trips and so far, three 3000-mile European holidays. The quality of ...

Glove review: Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex

Alpinestars 365 Gore Tex gloves £169.99Time used: Three years What’s good: These are the best gloves I’ve ever had. They’re a cross between a lightweight, dextrous racing glove and a warm, fully-waterproof Gore-Tex winter glove – the very best of both worlds. I wear them all the time for commuting, biking holidays and even racing when it’s really cold and ...

Product review: Startmonkey 400 jump starter

Startmonkey 400 jump starter £199Time used: Four months What’s good: What’s incredible about this battery pack is how much power it has for such a small unit. Once charged it will restart a standard 12V car battery 15-20 times (so smaller bike batteries are a piece of cake) and it retains 75% of its charge, even after a year without ...

Jacket review: Klan HOT heated inner jacket

Klan HOT heated inner jacket £125.00Time used: Four months What’s good: The best thing about this thin, lightweight, windproof heated jacket is I can squeeze it inside the kit I wear the most: leathers and fitted leather jackets. I’ve got it wired into the battery of my Ducati Streetfighter 848, which is a doddle to do, and I reckon I’ll ...

Product review: Ogio Rig 9800 LE kit bag

Ogio Rig 9800 LE kit bag £179.99Time used: Five years What’s good: This kit bag must have been around the world with me 10 times over, road testing for MCN. It’s seen hundreds of luggage belts, airplane holds, racetracks and hotels. I’ve also been using it to pack my racing kit for the past five seasons and even take it ...

Product review: Weise Tex Midlayer fleece jacket

Weise Tex Midlayer fleece jacket £74.99Time used: Five months What’s good? I’ve been wearing this fleece a lot over the past few months, both on and off the bikes. I like its looks, fitted cut and above all its warmth. It’s not big and bulky like a conventional fleece, but it’s still a bit too thick to fit under leathers. ...
