Rev’IT Defender GTX Gore-Tex suit

Steve Farrell, 03 June 2013 08:25

Rev’IT Defender GTX Gore-Tex suit, £879.98 (jacket £499.99, trousers £379.99)  Tester: Steve Farrell Time tested: 5000 miles/two years What’s good? This is one suit for road or trail, winter or summer. Removable lining and closable vents make it as useful in August as it is in December. Take the Gore-Tex lining out, and it’s cool enough for gentle off-roading, too. ...

Product review: Tucano Urbano Nano rain jacket and trousers

Steve Farrell, 21 June 2012 16:57

Tucano Urbano Nano rain jacket, £49.99, and trousers, £39.99 Time used: Three months What’s good: This is rainwear that fits in your pocket. They’re lightweight – the jacket is 180 grams, the trousers 170 – and compact. Both fold into tiny 50cl bags, the size of a small bottle of water. With some squishing, they should fit in even the ...

Steve Farrell, 22 September 2011 11:49

Tucano Urbano Giacca Trip touring jacket, £164, and Motoairbag, £364Miles covered/time: 2000/two months What's good: It’s a really nice looking coat that doesn’t look out of place anywhere, with a puffa jacket-style removable lining that can be worn separately. Motorcycle jackets for sale. It’s got lots of pockets and hasn’t let through a drop in persistent heavy rain. The detachable ...

Revit Defender GTX Gore-Tex adventure trousers

Steve Farrell, 14 September 2011 15:22

Revit Defender GTX Gore-Tex adventure trousers, £369.99 Miles covered/time: 1000/three months What's good: I recently reviewed Revit’s Defender GTX jacket. Now I’ve had a chance to test the matching trousers. They’re peerlessly versatile. Not only is the thermal lining removable, but the waterproof layer is, too. That proved very handy while off-roading on a hot day in the Brecon Beacons, ...

Tucano Urbano jeans

Steve Farrell, 03 August 2011 16:14

Tucano Urbano jeans, £75 Miles covered/time: 1000/one month What's good: Motorcycle jeans are often bizarrely cut and deeply unfashionable, defeating the point of wearing them by making you look stupid. These are half acceptable looking. What armour there is – at the knee – is discreet. The large hip pockets are very useful on the bike and look like they’re ...

Rev It Defender GTX Gore-Tex jacket, £499.99 (£229.99 on MCN shop)Miles covered/time: Three months/5000 miles What's good: It’s practical, protective, waterproof and supremely well made. As well as body armour in the usual places, there’s extra tough fabric over the elbows where abrasions are most likely. It’s got a decent removable thermal lining, lots of waterproof outside pockets (including a ...

Tuzo Speed leather jacket

Steve Farrell, 22 June 2011 11:19

Tuzo Speed leather jacket, £99.99 at Miles covered/time: 500/one month What’s good: At this price, the Tuzo Speed Jacket is great value for money. It’s a tad rough around the edges under close inspection. Where some jackets have a zip and a popper fastener on the cuffs, this just has zips.  But it’s nicely styled in what feels like pretty ...

Alpinestars Drystar ST-5 trousers

Steve Farrell, 09 May 2011 15:24

Alpinestars Drystar ST-5 trousers, £179.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/three months What's good: Like most Alpinestars stuff, they make motorcycling look good. The side pockets are useful but also lend the Alpinestars trousers a cargo-pants look. They’re comfortable, with soft, flexible armour at the knee and hip, and warm thanks to a removable thermal lining. I gave the waterproofing an extreme test ...

Product review: Weise waterproof over-trousers

Steve Farrell, 30 March 2011 13:43

Weise waterproof over-trousers, £14.99Time used: Four years What’s good: These nylon trousers have a good old-fashioned rubber coating inside (none of this breathable membrane nonsense) which is why they’re cheap and effective. Save £££s on motorcycle products They’ve kept me dry over many miles, more so than some textile trousers costing several times as much. They fold to a size ...

Tucano Urbano Urbis winter coat

Steve Farrell, 08 March 2011 10:54

Tucano Urbano Urbis winter coat, £165.90Miles covered/time: 2000/three months. What's good: It manages the feat of not looking out of place either on or off the bike. At the pub or in the park with the kids, it only looks slightly like a bike jacket. When riding, it looks and feels completely like one, with all practical features you'd expect ...
