Kit review: Alpinestars Adventure Gore-Tex trousers
Alpinestars Adventure Gore-Tex trousers, £329.95
Miles covered/time: 3000/five months
What’s good? Being a tall chap with long legs I struggle a lot with getting winter riding trousers long enough. Most of the time it looks like my boots have had an argument with the bottom of my trousers by the time I sit on a bike, and I get wind whistling up my Mystic Megs. These Adventure pants are nice and long, zip up nicely around my boots and are comfortable on a bike. Like the jacket it zips to, there’s body armour (in the knees) and lots of easy to reach pockets for money and phone etc. Above all, they’re nice and warm.
What’s not? Like the Adventure jacket these trousers are expensive but I’ve had no problems with them at all.
