Product review: Knox Venture Shirt

Marc Abbott, 25 June 2012 13:57

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 ...

Barbour International Original jacket, £229.95
(plus £39.95 for Warm-pile liner) Miles covered/time: 1800/four months.  

 What’s good: Some motorcycling garments have the magical ability to make you feel a million dollars as soon as you pull them on. The Barbour International is one such garment. Seventy-six years of heritage, the often imitated tartan lining, slanted breast pocket, brass buttons and belt ...

Proskins Moto All-season Trouser Baselayer

Marc Abbott, 29 July 2011 14:18

Proskins Moto All-season Trouser Baselayer, £29.99 Miles covered/time: 1200/one month What’s good: Putting these trousers on for the first time will feel like slipping into a very thick pair of tights (don’t ask me how I know). Once you’re in, they’re designed to hug your legs (they’re compression-wear, so designed to reduce muscle fatigue – handy for track days and ...

Tucano Urbano Steve jacket

Marc Abbott, 29 July 2011 14:06

Tucano Urbano Steve jacket, from £91 Miles covered/time: 1260/two months What’s good: There are very few jackets in my wardrobe that I can honestly say suit both riding and casual wear. This Tucano Urbano motorcycle jacket is my favourite. It’s a tailored cut, and quite high-waisted at that, but if you can carry off the slimline look the curiously named ...

Jacket review: Dainese Maverick

Marc Abbott, 27 June 2011 15:08

Dainese Maverick, £459.99Miles covered/time: 1000/one month What’s good: I’m a sucker for classically-styled motorcycle jackets and this new addition to Dainese’s range presses all the right buttons for me. The outer pockets (of which there are four) are simple to open and close, by way of two chunky poppers apiece. The removable lining is doing a good job of keeping me ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars Diplomatic

Marc Abbott, 28 October 2010 15:05

Alpinestars Diplomatic jacket, £289.95Miles covered/time: 1700/one year What’s good? I don’t wear this urban-styled jacket as much as I should, mainly because it can actually get TOO hot, even for winter use. Save cash on motorcycle jackets However, it’s recently reminded me why it’s a quiet favourite of mine – a 300-mile motorway trip in a combination of mist, drizzle, ...
