Product review: Knox Venture Shirt

Knox Venture Shirt, £109.99Time used: Four weeks What’s good: This Lycra shirt contains CE-approved elbow and shoulder armour plus a hard protector. It’s excellent. I wear it beneath my Barbour International which for me lacks just one thing – protection. After a very big crash at the tail-end of last year, I decided it was time to take protection seriously ...

Beta Tools Adjustable Wrench

Beta Tools Adjustable Wrench, £21 Time used: Four months What’s good: Quite what it is about this chrome-plated tool of beauty that makes me irrationally covetous I’ll try to explain. Its jaws operate smoothly throughout the wrench’s 32mm extent (that’s one and a quarter inches in old money – and marked on the reverse) by way of knurled adjuster. It’s ...

Glove review: Weise Victory

Weise Victory gloves, £39
Miles covered/time: 8000/18 months months 
 What’s good? The last time I reviewed these gloves, I’d travelled 1000 miles in them and owned them for the tail-end of spring 2010. An extra year of fine weather usage has served only to enforce my belief in them. Protection isn’t carbon-clad and obvious, but there are elements of armour ...

Velobici PBP seamless gloves

Velobici PBP seamless gloves, £20 Miles covered/time: 650/one month What's good: Created for the cycling world (the PBP stands for Paris-Brest-Paris, a famous long-distance race), these merino wool/polyester mix gloves have proved themselves to be absolutely brilliant from mid-August to mid-September. They’re called upon as undergloves, and they fit perfectly beneath my Weise Victory leather gloves, effectively extending the usable ...

Muc-Off Premium Microfibre Cloth

Muc-Off Premium Microfibre Cloth, £4.99 Time used: Five years What’s good: Muc-off claim their microfibre cloth “uses 'split-fibre' technology that
increases surface area absorbency, and eliminates smears or blemishes”. If I hadn’t been using this very cloth for the last five years I would probably take this with a pinch of salt.However, this is the first cloth that I reach for when ...

Kit review: Ortlieb Zip City bag

Ortlieb Zip City bag, £66Miles covered/time: 400/one month What’s good? It brings back fond memories of my childhood paper-round, is as waterproof as a duck and has enough room to accommodate all my daily commuting essentials (so that’s sandwiches, loose change, a woolly hat, old socks and a can of hairspray). The lock-out-style closure is satisfyingly chunky, and does need ...

Product review: EDZ merino beanie

EDZ merino beanie, £20Time owned: Four months What’s good? Due to the thin nature of the material, it is possible – just – to wear this under a helmet (like a skull cap) when it’s so cold that your brain feels like it’s going to freeze. Save cash on motorcycle clothing However, it’s mainly pressed into action in the garage, ...
