Product Review: Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Jacket

Michael Neeves, 09 December 2013 17:00

Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Jacket: £169.99Time tested: Six months/4000-miles. What’s good? I’ve been wearing this textile jacket for the summer season, including a 3000-mile riding holiday down to Portugal on my Hyperstrada. It’s light, comfortable and the mesh construction keeps you cool in the very hot weather, but thanks to a removable, windproof inner-lining it keeps you warm in chilly ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Racing Rain two-piece oversuit

Michael Neeves, 18 November 2013 16:30

Alpinestars Racing Rain two-piece oversuit, £129.99Time used: Two racing seasons What’s good? Designed to be worn over the top of race leathers, I’ve been using this two-piece rain suit for racing the last couple of years. It’s obviously good to keep dry when you’re racing – you’re warmer and more comfortable, which means you can concentrate more on what you’re ...

Leathers review: Alpinestars Racing Replica one-piece

Michael Neeves, 19 October 2012 14:26

Alpinestars Racing Replica one-piece suit. £1999.99Time used: One year What’s good: These protected me from serious injury a few weeks ago after a cold tyre highside going in to Graham Hill bend at Brands Hatch, on my race bike. It was one of those crashes when I fell from a great height rather than speed, so it’s more about how ...

Product Review: Alpinestars Tech Chest Guard

Michael Neeves, 23 August 2012 11:30

Alpinestars Tech Chest Guard £44.99Time used: Six yearsWhat’s good: I’m so used to wearing a chest protector now that if I forget to use it, I go into a blind panic, especially if I’m racing. I feel as naked without it as I do without a back protector. I use it in my race leathers on-track mainly, but also in ...

Product review: Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants

Michael Neeves, 16 August 2012 09:50

Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants £89.99Time used: Six months What’s good: I’ve had more use out of these two-piece waterproofs than I’d like this year, thanks to all the rain we’ve had. They’re lightweight and fold away to almost nothing, so you can keep them in a rucksack or tank bag without taking up loads of room, which ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars GP Pro

Michael Neeves, 23 May 2012 10:52

Alpinestars GP Pro leather jacket £429.99Time used: One year What’s good: This is a beautifully made and comfortable riding jacket, which is half of a two-piece racing suit. I wear this jacket with jeans generally, but sometimes use the leather bottoms for touring. It’s snug fitting and the 1.3mm full grain leather has a really nice satin finish to it, ...

Jacket review: Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket

Michael Neeves, 11 May 2012 10:17

Alpinestars waterproof over-jacket (superseded by Quick Seal Out version, £89.99)Time used: Six years What’s good: I’m not a huge fan of textile bike gear, I always find it a bit ‘frumpy’, so most of the time I either wear leathers or a leather jacket with this waterproof jacket over the top. You get the full protection of leathers and the ...

Jacket review: Klan HOT heated inner jacket

Michael Neeves, 20 April 2012 16:06

Klan HOT heated inner jacket £125.00Time used: Four months What’s good: The best thing about this thin, lightweight, windproof heated jacket is I can squeeze it inside the kit I wear the most: leathers and fitted leather jackets. I’ve got it wired into the battery of my Ducati Streetfighter 848, which is a doddle to do, and I reckon I’ll ...

Product review: Weise Tex Midlayer fleece jacket

Michael Neeves, 02 April 2012 12:34

Weise Tex Midlayer fleece jacket £74.99Time used: Five months What’s good? I’ve been wearing this fleece a lot over the past few months, both on and off the bikes. I like its looks, fitted cut and above all its warmth. It’s not big and bulky like a conventional fleece, but it’s still a bit too thick to fit under leathers. ...

Product review: EXO² StormRider heated vest

Michael Neeves, 02 April 2012 12:11

EXO² StormRider heated vest £179.99Time used: Three months What’s good? This body warmer keeps you warm before you’ve even heated it up, which is a good sign. Plugged into the bike’s battery it’s very effective and heats your upper back, kidney area, chest and shoulders to a constant 50°. It works best worn close to your skin, with layers over ...
