Kriega US20 tailpack review

Kriega US20 tailpack, £59Miles covered: 2400/two yearsWhat’s good? A cracking bit of kit that’s easy to use and so simple to fit even a girl can manage it. The stuff sack is fully waterproof and, because it’s a soft bag, items can be literally stuffed into it. The clever design means other packs can be attached if you need extra ...

Rev'it Fahrenheit gloves review

Rev’it Fahrenheit gloves, £69.99Miles covered: 1500/two yearsWhat’s good?Because these are three-season gloves (waterproof and suitable for milder days) there’s less padding to hinder feel. They’re warm enough down to around 5°C, and they’ve not leaked yet. They feel secure enough for me to use them as wet weather gloves when I’m racing, and the construction hasn’t broken under use or ...

EDZ All-Season Base Layer review

EDZ All-Season Base Layer, £50 Miles covered:5000/two yearsWhat’s good? I won’t wear one-piece leathers without this – it’s become indispensable. It helps getting in and out of the suit, wicks sweat away and makes life much more comfortable. Suits never snag or pull on my skin because they’re not in direct contact. It works for off-roading, too. What’s not? It’s ...

Akito Desert Suit review

Akito Desert suit, £179.98Miles covered:2000/one yearWhat’s good? With such a massive range of similar adventure-style suits out there, it’s incredible that this suit has all these features for under £200! I love the fact it’s totally versatile. There are three stages to the jacket: the heavy-duty polyamide outer, a removable thermal liner and also a removable waterproof membrane. So you ...

Helmet review: RX-7 Corsair

Time owned:14,000/18 monthsWhat’s good?The fact that my head is absolutely fine despite a 65mph highside on track which resulted in several hard impacts and a lot of sliding too. I loved this lid. The paintjob was done by the incredibly talented Rich Art was to my own design and I was gutted to see it smashed up. Have replaced it ...

Aerostitch Darien suit review

Aerostitch Darien suit, £569 Time owned:3300 miles/seven monthsWhat’s good: The quality is top notch.  Completely waterproof with high tech Gore-tex lining. Loads of gadget pockets, too. You can also order the kit to suit your specific size.What’s not: It’s not the warmest kit I’ve worn, requiring extra base layers to keep you properly cosy. It does come with a heated ...

Frank Thomas Raptor jacket review

Frank Thomas Raptor jacket, £159.99 Time owned:8000 miles/18 monthsWhat’s good: After 8000 miles of riding in mostly bad weather the Raptor has performed admirably. The jacket is comfy and the extended collar helps to stop the wind going down your back. The lining is easy to change. It doesn’t do one thing brilliantly, just does most things well. Full length ...

Gerbing heated vest review

Gerbing heated vest, £126.25 Time owned:10,000 miles/seven yearsWhat’s good:In seven years this heated waistcoat has never let me down. It’s short enough to wear under a leather jacket to keep spring chills at bay but has a high enough heat output for 200mile sub zero epics. The heated collar negates the need for bulky winter neck tubes. Takes five minutes ...
