Frank Thomas

I bought some Frank Thomas textile trousers and jacket for about £220 after 10% discount and ive found them to brilliant for the few weeks ive used them. Came with a removable thermal lining in the trousers and a removable thermal and waterproof lining in the jacket although from riding in some fairly mild rain just the jacket without the linings has been fine and seems to keep me warm enough so far. Would highly recommend them

Textile jacket and trousers

I to have Frank Thomas textile gear and find them totaly waterproof but find they can be to hot in warm weather even with the vents open. Paid £100 for the jacket and the same for the trousers at the show at the Exon centre. 2 years old now and about 10,000 miles and 1 accident later still as good as new.

JTS Bike Gear

I used to be a big fan of JTS bike gear, my first pair of waterproof trousers lasted about 3 years but the when I replaced them last year the new ones leaked after 6 months and now the replacement trousers have started leaking!!

I ride every day so I would suggest that they are still worth a look for occational use.
