Hein Gericke Tripmaster TFL Cool jacket £279.99 and trousers £229.99
Miles covered/time: 1500/four months
What’s good? The moment I put this two-piece suit on it felt good, not too much armour so you feel completely trussed up, but enough to make you feel safe, all CE-certified SaS-Tec protectors in all the right places (shoulders, elbows, back and knees) with built in pockets for hip protectors, too. The leather is an off-black/grey colour that has a special ‘TFL Cool’ system to reflect the heat, which does make quite a difference on a hot sunny day. Both jacket and trousers come with removable/washable linings, reflective piping for night riding and a full-length zip to join jacket to trousers. There are plenty of pockets for your odds and sods – two outer and three inner on the jacket, with two outer on the trousers. I would highly recommend wearing an undersuit as it helps with movement, stopping the leathers sticking to your skin, especially when it’s particularly hot.
What’s not? So far nothing, this is a great two-piece suit with no niggles.
