Motorcycle Clothing Reviews


First, some background: REAX is a new riding apparel line recently launched by Comoto Holdings – that’s RevZilla and Cycle Gear to you and me. I am fortunate to have friends working within this group, who were willing to speak candidly with me about it, on the condition they be left anonymous. The gear is …

I take safety seriously and encourage ATGATT riding. From that perspective, the jacket is second only to a helmet in terms of safety and impact resistance. Having the right jacket can be the difference between bumps/bruises and skin grafts. When choosing, one should always prioritize the jacket’s ability to protect you over other factors. This …

Tuk Tested What Does Tuk Tested Mean? These gloves have been tested more thoroughly than any other piece of gear in WBW history to date (that I’m aware of). I just returned from a 5600-mile adventure ride while using the Atomic gloves mostly on the way home because the weather turned very hot in that …

Tuk Tested What Does Tuk Tested Mean? These pants have been tested more thoroughly than any other piece of gear in WBW history to date (that I’m aware of). I just returned from a 5600-mile adventure ride while using the Alter Ego 13 pants the whole way. Beginning from my home in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada …

Tuk Tested What exactly does “Tuk Tested” entail, you might ask? This jacket has been tested more thoroughly than any other piece of gear in WBW history to date (that I’m aware of). I just returned from a 5600-mile adventure ride while using the Ballistic 14 jacket. Beginning from my home in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada …

Hot on the heels of my Trilobite 1860 Ton-Up jeans review is a look at the Karl Devil jeans from Pando Moto. The mission and approach of the Karl Devil Jeans couldn’t be more different from the Ton-Up Jeans. Where the Ton-Up jeans are all about offering good protection in “stealth mode”, the Karl Devil …

Jeans With A Twist What the…?? When I first saw the photos of the Trilobite Probut X-Factor motorcycling jeans in the MotoNation catalog I was beyond intrigued. I’ve noticed the rising popularity of motorcycle jeans and wondered whether they’re all some people make them out to be. I jumped at the chance to test these …

Introduction Over the past several years I’ve reviewed a lot of jeans designed for the motorcycle rider. Most of these follow a similar formula which includes a cotton denim outer shell with an interior lining that uses a type of abrasion resistant material. Most often the abrasion resistant material is Kevlar but I’ve also seen …

Built For Northern Motorcyclists As a born and raised Canadian whose day job consists of pulling wrenches at a diamond mine up in the sub-Arctic half the year, it’s safe to say that I’m an expert on the subject of cold weather and how to deal with it. This Fieldsheer Hydro Heat Textile jacket is …

Worth The Money? Rukka’s Virium Gore-Tex X-Trafit gloves are premium quality, adjustable, lightweight and appear to be built to last. They have a very effective layer of waterproof Gore-Tex meshed with nylon textile, polyester, suede and elastic materials sewn together with double stitching where it counts. Armor built into the suede fingertips, knuckle and scaphoid/palm …

First Impressions “So unbelievably lightweight and soft to the touch. How can these be riding pants, suitable for on and off-road protection?” Stylish and clean looking design with obviously waterproof pockets that zip shut and/or have a velcro flap over them for added security of the contents. They FIT ME!! I’ve worn and reviewed several …

Something Better, Something Different Rukka has rolled out this jacket (and matching pants) for the adventure rider that rides in multi-season, hotter weather doing serious off-road work. That much is immediately clear when you look at how thin, really lightweight and breathable it is designed to be. First Impressions “Is this a windbreaker or really …

The new REV’IT Clare women’s jacket is a very classic tight-fitting leather jacket. As soon as I touched it, I knew that this was not just any leather jacket. This was a top quality piece of leather craftsmanship. The leather is actually Iceland Buffalo which allows for a certain degree of softness without sacrificing durability. …

Being that I live in a very warm climate, I was eager to test any jacket that offered good ventilation as well as solid protection. And the added benefit of the Motonation Metralla being designed for a woman was an added bonus that doesn’t come along very often. I ride in men’s jackets most of …

My Criteria And Gloves Of Choice For me, touch is important. I like to have the ability to touch lightly with just a finger or two if I am moving my helmet screen or adjusting my glasses. And in a lot of cases, a bulky glove does not allow for those fine motor motions. And …

Bargain Pricing At only $99 the Motonation Cappra Vented Textile Pants are an outstanding option for hot weather riding pants. Most other options are in the $150- $200 range such as the Cortech Sequoia XC Air which Revzilla offers at a regular price of $179.99. The Motonation Cappra Vented Textile Pants Features Starting from the …

I’ve had the good fortune of getting to review several pieces of Pilot gear over the past couple of years including the Trans.Urban V2 and Direct Air V3 jackets. So when I saw Pilot had released a new jacket late last year (2017) I quickly asked if I could get one for review. I was …

A Pleasant Surprise A couple of months ago I noticed a posting on a Facebook group for Adventure riders that was offering a discount on Siima riding gear in exchange for “an honest review”. It was posted by an account with the name Giorgos Siima. Intrigued, I contacted him by private message about the offer …

Good Value Riding Pants Siima MotoWear is a motorcycle riding gear company, owned and operated by a passionate designer named Giorgos Evripidou in Nicosia, Cyprus. If you’ve never heard of them before don’t worry, you’re not alone. I only encountered Siima for the first time myself a couple of months ago. I “met” Giorgos online …

Updated January, 2018 Adventure/touring gloves need to provide riders with protection and comfort in a variety of different conditions and environments. The greatest challenge facing riders is achieving this balance in a durable glove. The most common choice for adventure/touring gloves is the short cuff as most riders consider this feature to offer more comfort …

Summary The Golden Eagle Sport sunglasses provide quality glare and brightness combined with slim and lightweight frame. They are designed to be comfortable for long periods of time when wearing a helmet or over-the-ear headphones. Introduction My history with eyeglasses goes all the way back to first grade. Then at age sixteen I started wearing …

Moto Skiveez Performance Tights and Compression Riding Socks Review Moto-Skiveez expands on their lineup of motorcycle riding base layers with a new, “longer” offering. The new performance tights take a different approach than the original Skiveez by way of a tighter fit and an improved pad. Also in this review we’ll take a look where …

Two motorcycle-centric shirts with differing appearances and design approaches to achieve similar goal, functionality and improving rider comfort. Functionality is not set aside for the sake of comfort as both shirts have features designed to make them useful for the motorcycle rider on both short and longer rides. They also can be handy for non-two-wheeled …

The Perfect Compromise of Style, Comfort and Function? If you’ve been following the webBikeWorld clothing reviews for the last year or so you will have noticed a major shift in motorcycle jackets. With the explosion of scrambler, café racer, and retro inspired bikes there has been a corresponding surge in matching retro and Urban style …

Rev’it Defender GTX Jacket Preview Defender GTX Jacket The next new jacket in the Rev’it Gore-Tex lineup is the Defender GTX, which looks somewhat similar to the famed Cayenne Pro jacket. It features a 500 denier genuine Cordura shell with DuPont Teflon coating to reduce water absorption at the shell layer.  The Defender GTX also …

Rev’it Gore-Tex Legacy GTX Jacket Preview Legacy GTX Jacket Technically speaking, the Cayenne Pro then comes next in the hierarchy of Rev’it jackets, followed by the Sand jacket we reviewed in 2010. After that comes the new Legacy GTX jacket and pants. The Legacy GTX is designed for riders in milder climates, such as Northern …

Rev’it Gore-Tex Motorcycle Clothing Preview August 2010 – In November of 2009, we reported on the new partnership between Rev’it and W.L. Gore, a cooperative effort to produce the “next generation” of advanced motorcycle clothing using the latest technologies and production methods from both companies. Then in January 2010, we added to that article the details …

Rev’it Everest GTX Jacket Preview Rev’it Everest GTX Jacket The top-of-the-line Rev’it jacket for Fall/Winter 2010 is the new Everest GTX (GTX = Gore-Tex).

Rev’it Ultimate Pants The Rev’it X-Vent pants were my favorite cool-weather motorcycle riding pants, bar none.  They fit well, they were comfortable and they kept me warm in throughout the cold winter months. There were two features that I wish were different though, and both of these (and more) have been addressed in the new …

Birçok binici ılık veya sıcak havaları tercih eder ama ben öyle değilim. Mükemmel biniş sıcaklığı benim için 18 derece civarıdır. O sıcaklıklar hem rahat hem güvenli yolculuklar yapmama elveriyor. Korumalı ceket, kapalı kask, tam parmaklı motosiklet eldiveni, ayak bileğini aşan çizme ve iyi havalarda deri pantolon üstlüğü ya da kışın yalıtımlı tekstil pantolon giyebiliyorum. Tamam, …

BMW Motorcycle Underwear Review Comfortable, breathable and seems to work as advertised. I’ve had mixed feelings on this motorcycle underwear thing. And that goes double when it comes to motorcycle underwear for summer. Sure, the pioneers in the Old West wore Long Johns under their wool bloomers…but what did they know from Coolmax? I mean …

Holofiber Motorcycle Underwear Review Holofiber is claimed to “modify the spectrum of visible and invisible light, interacting with certain wavelengths, and altering them into energy. When Holofiber is worn as clothing, or placed near a person (in a bed sheet or pillowcase) it transmits the altered energy to the body”. Hard to prove, but we …

REV’IT! 2014 Fall/Winter Clothing Preview I made a quick stop at REV’IT! USA headquarters last week to check out the Fall/Winter 2014 lineup. Yes, you read that right! It’s time for winter clothing.

Hands On Reviews: Motorcycle Riding & Protective Jeans When it comes to motorcycle safety we’ve always been an ATGATT kind of company here at webBikeworld. For a long time we didn’t recommend jeans for riding because they lacked the protective qualities you need to stay protected. But we get it, we know that a lot of motorcycle pants …

Stand Out On Those Late Night Rides With These High-Visibility Clothing Options Reviewed By Our Expert Team The Hurt Report is sobering for those riders who like to take a late night ride without bright visibility clothing.
