Product Review: Alpinestars Solaris textile jacket

Phil West, 28 January 2014 11:30

Alpinestars Solaris textile jacket, £158 Time tested: 500 miles/3 months What’s good? The new-for-2013 Solaris is a textile, general purpose, 'sports' jacket with a more snug  fit than a full-on winter jacket and a higher waistband. I reckon it looks good and is comfy, mostly thanks to a soft, high collar and decent tailoring, on and off bike. It's practical ...

Jacket Review: Alpinestars Avant leather jacket

Phil West, 02 September 2013 12:00

Alpinestars Avant leather jacket, £299.99Time tested: 400 miles/two months What’s good? Alpinestars’ summer leather jacket has bags of subtle style (coming in plain and classy brown, beige or black), plenty of features (pre-shaped sleeves, armour for elbows and shoulders and lots of stretch panels, pockets and adjustment tabs), 1.1mm leather where it counts and, I reckon, it's reasonable value, too, ...

Clothing Review: Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans

Phil West, 08 August 2013 11:49

Triumph Engineered denim/Kevlar jeans, £159 Time tested: 500 miles/3 months What’s good? I've tried two or three types of 'riding jeans' before and these are my favourites so far. Fit (with plenty of leg length, important for riding) and quality of the denim, stitching etc is good; there are a number of nice touches (such as extra strong belt loops ...

Jacket Review: Triumph Newchurch leather jacket

Phil West, 15 July 2013 09:46

Triumph Newchurch leather jacket, £310 Miles covered/time: 600 miles/two monthsWhat's good? If I knew ‘owt about fashion (which I don’t) I’d say these wax cotton-look, Belstaff/Barbour-style jackets are all the, er, ‘rage’ at the moment, as popular around Tesco as twin-shock trials. Trouble is, many are more show than go, expensive (a pukka leather Belstaff can cost a ridiculous £1200) ...

You too can be Batman...

Phil West, 13 December 2011 16:36

This Batman suit is no fancy dress costume – it’s a proper, leather motorcycle suit, designed for bikers who want to look more superhero than Power Ranger. It’s the latest from US manufacturer UD Replicas who specialize in making motorcycle leathers in the style of superhero outfits. This Batman Dark Knight two-piece suit, complete with boots and gloves, follows its ...

Alpinestars Verona

Phil West, 04 July 2011 13:51

Alpinestars Verona jacket, £139.99Miles covered/time: 700/three months What’s good: Lots actually. I’m usually sceptical about day-to-day textile jackets, usually finding things that don’t work, fit or annoy (which is why I kept on using my old one for a good five years) but so far I’m impressed with the Verona. It’s got: classic, understated style (so much so that, off-bike, it ...

Joe Rocket Survivor suit

Phil West, 19 April 2011 14:37

Joe Rocket Survivor suit, £299.99Miles covered/time: 500 miles/four monthsWhat’s good: Most things, impressively so. I’m new to this style of all-in-one motorcycling ‘romper suit’ that Aerostich pioneered and, until now, baulked at their bulk and cost. . But this is impressively affordable (browsetextile motorcycle clothing for sale to compare prices) without skimping on features – toasty warm, too, so much so I’m about ...

Kit review: Dainese stripes jacket

Phil West, 11 May 2010 15:04

Dainese Stripes jacket, £379.99 Miles covered/time: 300/two months What’s good? The ‘Stripes’ (no, I don’t get the name either, there’s not a stripe anywhere) is Dainese’s new, semi-retro, traditionally styled, all-purpose jacket for 2010. So dial-in the usual classy, style and quality throughout. The semi-distressed leather seems decent and all the expected features are present and correct, including detachable liner, ...

Jacket review: Dainese Santa Monica

Phil West, 21 April 2010 10:13

Dainese Santa Monica jacket, £479.99Time owned: Three years What’s good? Solid, classy, quality throughout. The leather is reassuringly thick, the construction durable and it features everything you need in the right place without being overly fussy or gimmicky. Save money on motorcycle jackets Thermal liner is good, too, making this usable through much more of the year than your average ...
