Jacket review: Spidi T-Combat

James Keen, 06 January 2011 09:41

Spidi T-Combat jacket, £229.99Miles covered/time: 400/three months What’s good? The original reason for my getting this very ‘European’ jacket was so I could wear it when I’m testing scooters for our website, but it’s so comfortable and warm I’ve taken to using it every day on my winter commute through town. Save cash on motorcycle jackets Despite getting caught in ...

Kit review: Revit GT2 trousers

James Keen, 21 October 2010 10:05

Revit GT2 trousers, £249.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/six monthsWhat’s good? They attach easily onto my RevIt CR jacket with a sturdy 270-degree(ish) zip, so they’re perfect for both touring and track. The ventilation areas actually work pretty well on the move and the textile stretch areas improve comfort and flexibility. They also have a pocket – an underrated feature, especially when ...

James Keen, 18 May 2010 14:04

Sartso Snake Wave Kevlar jeans, £124.99Miles covered/time: 900 miles/two months What’s good?

Trouser review: Hein Gericke Craig II

James Keen, 18 September 2009 14:25

Product: Hein Gericke Craig II trousers, £89.99Miles covered/time: 4000/8 months What’s good? They’re the sort of trousers you could commute in all year – waterproof but not too hot for the drier days. Wear some trousers under them and they’ll get you through winter. They look a bit like jeans and they’re nearly as comfortable, so they’re pretty practical off ...

James Keen, 18 September 2009 14:16

Product: Bering Iridium jacket, £379  (now superseded by Bering Mask, £279.99)Miles covered/time: 7000/13 months What’s good? You can’t go wrong with an understated black leather jacket – it never goes out of style. This one from Bering is for summer use, but with the aid of a fleece I use it all year round. It has 2 useful inner pockets ...

Jacket review: Dainese Zentex

James Keen, 08 April 2009 15:34

Best thing about it: If you plan to ride on the continent during the peak of summer, leathers are unbearably hot, especially in town. This jacket has large mess panels on the chest and back which let the air flow in and around you, keeping you very cool on the move. It has armour in the shoulders and elbows, plus ...

Jacket review: Arlen Ness LJ-3177

James Keen, 10 March 2009 16:10

Best thing about it: Its chunky leather and Kevlar panels saved my skin in an accident. The zipper on the left cuff was ground off and the arm sustained scuffs, but despite going down quite hard on my shoulder I escaped unscathed. With the removable quilted liner in (and a few layers underneath) I found it warm enough for riding ...

Here's a run down of some of the top thermals available, compiled by MCN's sister title RiDE magazine. Try to buy thermals that are a good tight fit as this will help keep you snug ...
