Resurgence Ace Denim Jacket

RORY
I've been wearing the Resurgence Ace Denim Jacket since the turn of the year and it has quickly become my 'go to' jacket for all occasions. On the few rides that I have braved during a parky February it's been fantastic. The first time I took it out on the bike I did wonder if choosing a jacket without an inner liner was a sensible idea but thanks to the 15oz selvedge denim the very low temperatures didn't come close to chilling my bones. The Pekev lining does it's bit to keep the wind out and to give me confidence during my ride that I'm well protected. Removing the armour takes seconds and gives the jacket another lease of life as cracking casual jacket for wearing popping into town of an evening.

100% Barstow Goggles

MARIUS
What do names like Dimitri Coste, Keith Lynas, and Kim Boyle have in common? Besides well earned top positions in their respective motorcycling fields, you'll find all of these motorcycling knights sporting a pair of the Barstow goggles next time you see them on the road or TV. I'm using these bad boys everyday and man... they are comfy not 'lazy boy with a beer comfy' but they beat a pair of sunglasses any day of the week. Also, I can't even count how many pairs of sunglasses I have broken while trying to put them between my brain box and the helmet padding. Not a problem with the 100% Barstows! They are easy on and off all day long, even with a pair of ol' dirty gloves on. For a longer trips I found that fogging was slight of an issue, but all you need is just wearing a neck warmer up over your mouth and nose. Verdict? Grab a pair.

Richa Scrambler Jacket

JAMES
I have now had my Richa Scrambler jacket roughly a month, I am incredibly happy with every aspect of it and would definitely recommend it. The fit is great, its snug and warm with the quilted liner in and plenty breathable without and it's sampled a couple of South Coast storms already without me getting wet underneath. Best of all though it looks great and the price tag is very reasonable for the quality of jacket you get. If you're in the market for a jacket you can comfortably wear 12 months of the year, will look good, and won't break the bank, then look no further.

TCX Hero Boots

RORY
I have to be honest, these boots have really surprised me in how quickly they've felt like a comfy pair of slippers. They were a tad narrow when I picked them up but they've worn in nicely and in a matter of weeks. They deflect the worst of the crap in the middle of the roads around our local haunts and the waterproof liner has saved me from soggy toes on a couple of occasions. The zip opening has massively helped getting the boots off after the unfortunate wet rides.
