    Just for other possible info if people are looking for Goretex kit i had a day riding today with students in biblical rain and gale force winds with Dainese Carve Master 2 Goretex suit and my older, previously crashed in, Alpinestars SMX Plus Goretex boots. All held up well warm and dry inside but they were saturated on the outer layer and now drying out in front of the fire.



    The suit has held up well and been soaked on many occasions since purchase in May last year

    After your experiences that's what I'd have gone for if I still rode year round. But as I only do 2500-3000 miles a year in fair weather I went with the 200 quid Oxford Mondial.

I think their Vision trousers look great too.

    At this price level, I can't think of another brand that offers such high spec. Scott Leathers' customer service is notoriously poor at replying to emails, but their kit's top quality.

    NB: The "Scott Leathers" branded clobber is made in the UK by the same seamstresses who make the TT riders' leathers. However, the "TT" range of textiles is cheaper, imported stuff.
    Poor? Bleedin' non-existent!

    I was trying to sort out some of their kit for a bit of flag-waving working for Shiny Side Up in NZ last year. After three unanswered mails, I managed to get a reply from a director (via the FB page I think) - he called me from his car phone saying he'd chase up a response, and that was the very last I heard despite several more emails and unanswered calls.

    It was really disappointing. I had their 'Road' jacket back at the end of my despatching days and it was not only well-made (with the chunky cordura you mentioned on impact points) but it was actually 100% waterproof. I think the only time I got wet in it was on the final day of my instructor training course, when it rained from 7am (when I left the house) to 8pm (when I got back).

    Looks nice enough, although I've had enough of those large external pockets.


    I think you meant this :

    hmm - not a bad price but I'd definitely need to try one on for sizing (with the normal work-wear underneath) to see if it makes a good commute suit.
    I remember borrowing Cheb's a couple of years ago, and it was very oddly shaped iirc (tight in some places, massively loose in others)
    I'll have a look to see if I can find one. My Alpinestar WetSuit needs replacing. It was never, ever the DriSuit it ciaimed to be but it's starting to look a bit tatty now.
