Jacket review: Spidi T-Combat

Spidi T-Combat jacket, £229.99Miles covered/time: 400/three months What’s good? The original reason for my getting this very ‘European’ jacket was so I could wear it when I’m testing scooters for our website, but it’s so comfortable and warm I’ve taken to using it every day on my winter commute through town.

Kit review: Revit GT2 trousers

Revit GT2 trousers, £249.99 Miles covered/time: 3000/six monthsWhat’s good? They attach easily onto my RevIt CR jacket with a sturdy 270-degree(ish) zip, so they’re perfect for both touring and track. The ventilation areas actually work pretty well on the move and the textile stretch areas improve comfort and flexibility. They also have a pocket – an underrated feature, especially when ...

Product review: Kriega R25 rucksack

Product: Shoei XR-1000 Camino TC6, £373.95 (£336.15 in the MCN Shop)Miles covered/time: 1000/2 months What's good? The Camino paint scheme,­ I love it. For me that's reason enough to buy this lid.

Trouser review: Hein Gericke Craig II

Product: Hein Gericke Craig II trousers, £89.99Miles covered/time: 4000/8 months What’s good? They’re the sort of trousers you could commute in all year – waterproof but not too hot for the drier days. Wear some trousers under them and they’ll get you through winter.
