Motorcycle Underwear Reviews


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 …

Battle of the Body Protectors A long time ago, I discovered the benefits of ditching the stock protectors included with motorcycle clothing Underwear and wearing protective (“armored”) underwear instead. There are a couple of reasons for doing this. First, the armored underwear is elastic, so it locates the protectors right where they need to be …

Moto-Skiveez Motorcycle Underwear Moto-Skiveez are underwear for motorcycle riding designed by a competitive motorcyclist. Moto-Skiveez have a nice design and construction that should work well for many riders, off-road, touring, sport or street riding. Most motorcycle riders at one time or another have had to deal with the issue of on-bike comfort. Most motorcycles are …

BMW Functional Socks Review Available in cotton or wool-based technical blends, BMW Functional Socks are comfortable, functional and durable, with a great return on investment. Socks are an essential layer but they don’t typically get the same consideration as outer components of the ATGATT (all the gear, all the time) approach. As motorcyclists we spend …

Wear This Shirt on Every Ride The Forcefield Body Armour Pro Shirt is a surprisingly comfortable way to get your full dose of protection. The stretchy material fits like a second skin — just like the company says. And you’ll never know you’re wearing a Forcefield CE Level 2 back protector, built into a pocket …

MOTO-D Summer Undersuit Review The MOTO-D summer undersuit is a surprisingly comfortable and very stretchy liner for leathers, textile or other riding gear. It makes climbing into and out of leathers a lot easier and it reduces chafing. Works just as well under a textile street jacket and pants outfit and it’s surprisingly cool and …

Spark Diablo & Spark Carbon Shirts The Spark motorcycle underwear is very soft and comfortable with impeccable tailoring and details. The excellent Dryarn fabric transfers moisture without trapping too much heat. I reviewed a selection of Spark windproof underwear (review) designed for motorcycle use in the heart of winter, 2009. I found all of the Spark items …

Sub Zero Thermals for Near-Zero Weather Very soft and comfortable no-nonsense thermals. Snug fit and flexibility makes them almost seem to disappear when riding. Excellent compromise between fabric weight, breathability, moisture wicking and wind blocking. This has been a year of strange weather for us. We’ve had endless rain and cool weather in the Spring, …

Knox Windproof Underwear vs. Under Armour ColdGear Review Knox “Cold Killer” windproof underwear is specifically designed for motorcycle riding and is our preferred choice. Both brands run small, in our opinion, so choose carefully. It seems like just yesterday we posted our review of Under Armour HeatGear. That was in the blistering heat of summer …

Becka Coolwear Motorcycle Underwear Review Thicker fabric than most polyester-only wicking under garments. Definitely transfers moisture away from the rider’s body. This helps to make leathers or textile garments more comfortable to wear in hot weather. It seems counterintuitive to wear a full-length “Long John” under garment in the summer to keep cool. I can …

EDZ Motorcycle Moisture Wicking Underwear Review Comfortable, breathable under layer for leathers or textile motorcycle clothing. Helps make it easier to slip in to or out of leathers, especially after a sweaty ride. I’ll take a wild guess and estimate that something like 99.998% of the world’s population of motorcycle riders don’t realize that there’s …

Rukka and Biker’s Comfort in Action Motorcycle Underwear   Background It was a cold, crisp winter morning that brought the challenge. Actually, it sounded more like a dare. Frank Cooper, who owns and manages Adventure Motorcycling Gear, offered it up: “Dress like you normally would for cold-weather riding. Go out for a half-hour or so, …
