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. ...

Product review: EXO² StormRider heated vest

EXO² StormRider heated vest £179.99Time used: Three months What’s good? This body warmer keeps you warm before you’ve even heated it up, which is a good sign. Plugged into the bike’s battery it’s very effective and heats your upper back, kidney area, chest and shoulders to a constant 50°. It works best worn close to your skin, with layers over ...

Product review: Weise Tex Midlayer long sleeve shirt

Weise Tex Midlayer long sleeve shirt £59.99Time used: Five months What’s good: Unlike some thermal mid-layer jackets, I can fit this long sleeve thermal top underneath my leathers, usually popped over the top of a two-piece summer undersuit (layering up i’s what it’s all about in the cooler months). The windproof outer material is effective at keeping the chill away ...

Product review: Powermonkey Explorer

Powermonkey Explorer, £65Time used: Three months What’s good: This is a portable charging device, which has enough power to fully charge a mobile phone up to three times, or an iPhone 1.5-times. Made from durable soft-touch rubber and plastics, it measures 90mm x 35mm, so small enough to keep in a rucksack and not notice. It’s really handy for when ...

Product review: EXO² HeatSole

EXO² HeatSole £89.99Time used: Three months What’s good: These heated inner soles simply slip inside your boots or shoes and are heated up by rechargeable power packs. They heat up to around 45 degrees and are self-regulating. What’s not: They’re comfortable enough but I could never really feel them warm up. I’d say the batteries last for no more than ...

Trouser review: Weise Tex Midlayer

Weise Tex Midlayer trouser £49.99Time used: Three months What’s good: I’m really impressed with these thermal trousers and I’m wearing them a lot under leathers, winter riding gear and even jeans when it’s really cold outside. Thanks to the windproof fabric at the front of the trouser and the fleece inside they’re nice and warm, but the best bit for ...

Ben Spies: Taking it to the Next Level

Ben Spies: Taking it to the Next Level, by Larry Lawrence, £19.99Time used: One week What’s good: Written by American bike journalist Larry Lawrence, with quotes from friends, family, team members, rivals and Spies himself, this coffee table book is for the hardcore fan. It starts with a glowing foreword by the legendry Kevin Schwantz, then chronologically details Ben’s meteoric ...

Product review: Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance layer

Alpinestars Summer Tech Performance Top (£69.99) and Bottoms (£49.99)Miles covered/time: 12,000/five months What’s good: This two-piece undersuit makes wearing one and two-piece leathers very comfortable and easy to slip-off, even on a hot and sweaty day. The Dryarn material is very lightweight and it’s a figure-hugging, muscle-supporting compression fit, too, which Alpinestars say helps to reduce fatigue. I’ve been wearing ...
