Kit review: Alpinestars Adventure Gore-Tex jacket

Alpinestars Adventure Gore-Tex jacket, £429.95
Miles covered/time:
3000/five months
What’s good? Easily the warmest, comfiest winter jacket I’ve had and thanks to what seems like the longest winter in living memory it’s been my biking comfort blanket when out riding on road tests. It ticks all the boxes. It’s long enough not to let in drafts at the back, plus it zips into the Adventure trousers for added wind-proofing. It’s waterproof, has shoulder and elbow body armour and the cuffs zip up nice and snugly over your gloves. What more do you want?
What’s not? There’s no denying it’s a pricey garment – it’s a jacket for the serious year-round tourer. It’s a bit too clumpy to wear on a cramped-up sportsbike.
