Alpinestars Quick Seal Out Jacket and Pants £89.95
Tester: Michael Neeves
Time used: Three years/100,000 miles
What’s good? I last reviewed these two-piece waterproofs in mid-2012 when they were just six months old. Three years later they’re still going strong. They’re quite thin, so I was worried they wouldn’t pass the test of time, but I’ve done over 100,000 road testing, touring, commuting and race-school-instructing miles in them and they’re still as good as new. I wear them (mostly the zip-up top half on its own) over one and two-piece leathers to keep warm in the winter/spring/autumn and of course in the rain, where they are completely waterproof. They fold up into virtually nothing, so they’re easy to carry when you’re not using them. You can put the bottoms on without having to take your boots off, which is handy when you’re caught-out in bad weather.
What’s not? There’s nothing to dislike about these waterproofs. They’re durable and do their job perfectly.
