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 ...

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 ...

Trouser review: Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex trousers £249.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: These Gore-Tex touring trousers are really warm, comfortable, easy to move around in and very well-made. Like the Excursion Jacket, the trousers are constructed from a Teflon-coated, abrasion and tear-resistant fabric with a waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. It has CE-certified knee and shin pads and soft padding on the hips. The ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex

Alpinestars Excursion Gore-Tex jacket £349.99Miles covered/time: 1000/five months What’s good: This superbly-made, comfortable touring jacket will be my constant companion over the winter months. I’ve already used it loads for MCN testing duties, worn it on a holiday to France in the early summer (when it was still cold) and am now commuting with it. It’s lovely and warm, but ...

Product review: Proguard Motorcyclists custom-fit earplugs

Proguard Motorcyclists custom-fit earplugs, £125.99Miles covered/time: 3000/two months What’s good: These soft, medical-grade silicon earplugs are custom made to suit the individual and the price includes having a foam mould taken of your ears at a local FlexGuard centre. They post the earplugs out to you two weeks later. They (or ‘it’ in my case – I’m deaf in one ...
