Kit review: Spada Classic jacket

Samuel Pinney, 21 October 2010 09:59

Spada Classic jacket, £195Miles covered/time: 300 (dry)/two weeksWhat’s good? The leather is soft, buttery soft. Find yourself touching it when you shouldn’t soft. The cow it came from must have had a relaxing life. It’s got pockets, a removable lining and protection in the arms. It’s also cool, so perfect for summer riding, and even has some vents in the ...

Jacket review: Frank Thomas Richmond

Samuel Pinney, 20 August 2010 16:35

Frank Thomas Richmond Jacket, £179.99Miles covered/time: 1000 (dry)/two months What’s good? The first time I wore this I interrupted a crime (someone trying to steal Liam Marsden’s Versys) and rescued an old lady’s handbag from the middle of the road. Save cash on motorcycle jackets I don’t normally do that sort of thing, so I blame the jacket. It’s a ...

Kit review: Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers

Samuel Pinney, 09 December 2009 14:37

Frank Thomas X Terrain Trousers, £129.99 Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/five months What’s good? The armour is very well positioned so that when you are riding the bike it perfectly covers your knees. It’s surprisingly thick too. This is why, even after ejecting from a Daytona 675 recently whilst wearing these, I don’t walk with a limp now. The ...

Kit review: Frank Thomas X Terrain Jacket

Samuel Pinney, 09 December 2009 14:18

Frank Thomas X Terrain Jacket, £169.99Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 4000/five monthsWhat’s good? It’s really warm, even with the inner lining removed. With the lining in and zipped up properly it’s like riding along inside a yeti. The bright colours are good for visibility and it’s got a wealth of pockets to fill with useful things. The armour isn’t bad ...

Kit review: Lidl Undersuit

Samuel Pinney, 10 September 2009 17:39

Product: Lidl Undersuit, £11Miles covered/time: 2000/four months What’s good? For the cost of a tank of petrol you can have an undersuit. It is surprisingly good at regulating your body temperature. It can take the edge off a chilly day on a long trip and keeps you cool on hot days. Also it makes you look like a futuristic cat ...

Kit review: Hein Gericke Basic II rainsuit

Samuel Pinney, 10 September 2009 17:25

Product: Hein Gericke Basic II rainsuit (£44.99)Miles covered/time: 1000What’s good? It packs down quite small. It is possible to put it on without taking your boots off. If you dream of walking around in a black crisp packet, then this is the suit for you.What’s not? It lets water in. In rain the zip down the front leaks. The bottom ...

Kit review: Classic Draggin jeans

Samuel Pinney, 19 August 2009 10:53

Product: Classic Draggin jeans (£99.99) Tester: Samuel Pinney Miles covered/time: 3000/four months What’s good? The first time I wore these jeans I was rear-ended at some traffic lights and thrown off the bike. If I hadn’t been wearing the jeans my injuries would have been much worse. Of course if the car driver behind me had remembered that you stop ...

Jacket review: Frank Thomas Bullit Retro jacket

Samuel Pinney, 07 May 2009 10:57

Best bit: The look, it’s awesome. It doesn’t just look good, it’s well put together and just wearing it can make my day. The leather is high quality and smells amazing. Even though it’s retro looking it’s got shoulder, elbow and back armour built in. You could tell me it was made by communists out of kittens and I’d still ...

Jacket review: Hein Gericke Tuareg Rallye GTX III jacket

Samuel Pinney, 12 March 2009 09:37

Best thing about it: Chuck the waterproof, insulated lining in and it will keep you toasty warm in sideways rain and sleet. I wore it on a ride from Silverstone to Cornwall and the only reason I stopped was for petrol, it’s that warm. Take out the lining and you’ve got a pretty serious bit of off-road kit thanks to ...
