Suit review: BMW AirFlow 3

Product: BMW AirFlow 3 textile suit (now superseded by AirFlow 4, jacket:
£290, trousers £205)
Miles covered/time:
1000/two years

What's good? This suit is so lightweight it's ideal for riding on sweltering hot days ­ especially as the Airtex netting-type material which makes up a large part of it allows cooling air to flow over your body.

There's also removable CE-approved armour at the knees as well as elbow, shoulder, back and hip protectors which mould to your body.

Overall, a well-cut, good-looking suit with BMW branding that#s refreshingly subtle.

What's not? The not-so-great British summer has meant limited use over the past two-and-a-bit years.

You have to have access to a very good weather forecast and plan the timings of your ride to get the benefits without the disadvantages.

Get caught as the sun goes down on a chilly spring or autumn evening and you will end up chilled to the bone, as I found out on the way back from Brands Hatch last spring.
