Motorcycle Apparel: Reviews
Rider‘s motorcycle apparel reviews include pants, jackets, riding suits, gloves, socks and anything else you put on your body (other than helmets, which have their own specific section).

Dainese D-Explorer Gore-Tex Suit Review

Dainese’s D-Explorer Gore-Tex Suit

Greg Drevenstedt
September 3, 2015

Dainese’s D-Explorer Gore-Tex suit is designed for the demands of adventure/dual-sport riding, where negotiating challenging terrain may require standing on the pegs, counterbalancing, pushing, pulling and, on those unlucky days, picking up your heavy bike again and again. The “modular flap system”... Read more »

Wearing hi-viz apparel is a great way to get motorists’ attention. Ultra-bright colors that don’t exist in nature catch their eyes, and that momentary “what’s that?” pause may make them think twice before pulling out in front of you. But what makes hi-viz gear appealing from a safety standpoint... Read more »

Triumph ISDT Motorcycle Jacket Review

Triumph ISDT Motorcycle Jacket

I like my riding gear like I like my motorcycles––simple, classic and functional––and when I got a Triumph Bonneville I developed a yearning for a jacket like the old waxed-cotton Belstaff I had in my lost youth. It was a foul green and smelled so bad my roommates wouldn’t let me come in the... Read more »

Racer Dynamic II Motorcycle Gloves Review

Even though crashing when it’s cold is probably going to hurt just as much as when it’s hot, most cold-weather gloves go for bulk over protection. You get a leather palm here and there, maybe, but that’s not going to help a lot if you punch the pavement. For serious hand protection you need more... Read more »

Riding in the rain is either one of the great joys of motorcycling or one of its biggest hassles. Either way you look at it, you need a good rainproof outer layer to keep the rain out. Some riders choose riding gear made of waterproof material, but many others, especially those who don’t ride in rain... Read more »

The Sidi Company has been making motorcycle boots since 1970, and has a men’s and women’s range covering everything from motocross to touring, even pit boots. Liking simplicity and ease of use, I ordered up a pair of Sidi Tour Rain boots in size 11.5. Putting them on the scale, the pair weighed three... Read more »

Winter is just another riding season here in Oregon, thanks mainly to snow-free weather and heated riding gear. But although I love heated gear, I’m not so fond of all the wires, especially the ones I have to thread through the sleeves of my jacket to power heated gloves. Now there’s a way to... Read more »

Aerostich Transit 2 Suit Back in 2008, Aerostich released the first-generation Transit suit, made of Gore-Tex Pro Shell leather—top-grain leather fused with a breathable, waterproof inner membrane. During tanning, the leather is treated with repellents so it won’t absorb water like traditional leather,... Read more »
