Alpinestars El Nino waterproof oversuit

Alpinestars El Nino waterproof oversuit, £89
Miles covered/time:
1500/one year

What’s good? As an emergency set of waterproofs for summer use these have been great at keeping me dry. First and foremost they don’t leak and they don’t flap about too much.

There are reflective panels with heat resistant sections on the legs and it rolls up into a bum bag. Adjustable neck and wrist stop it inflating with air.

What’s not? The lining gets snagged on boots and shoulder and elbow armour. I got stuck in them somewhere in France, on my own and ended up ripping one of the belt loops off in my furious attempt to get out.

The neck Velcro gets snagged on the lining of my crash helmet.
