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). Our rule of the road is, “dress safe and dress for the ride.” That means selecting protective gear that will make your ride more enjoyable.

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 »

Elastic bellows on the Dainese Fulcrum C2 Gore-Tex Boots allow the foot to flex naturally. To get my seal of approval, touring boots need to be comfortable, durable, waterproof, easy to get on and off (yet stay securely on my feet while riding), and capable of protecting my feet and ankles, with their... Read more »

Joe Rocket Trixie Waterproof Boots are for women, with a low-cut design and laser-etched detailing. Motorcycle boots are always a compromise between style, comfort and protection. We want them to look good, to feel good on and off the bike, and to prevent or minimize injury in a crash, but few boots... Read more »

Joe Rocket’s Alter Ego 3.0 All-Weather Riding Suit Review

Joe Rocket’s Alter Ego 3.0 All-Weather Riding Suit

Sue Salvadori
March 4, 2015

Two weeks on tour in Italy and 8,000 miles away from home, one hopes to have made the right gear choices. Big temperature variations and the occasional rain shower are best addressed with a bit of layering. Rather than taking a rainsuit, I chose to wear Joe Rocket’s Alter Ego 3.0 multi-layer all-weather... Read more »

Americans, even those of generation Baby Boomer, seem to be changing their lifestyles for the better: No smoking, moderating alcohol intake, and…we even eat our broccoli. Motorcyclists also seem better at safely suiting up, too. More wear helmets, protective jackets and boots. The one lapse is from... Read more »
