Sidi “Jasmine” Rain Boots Review They look like leather but these protective, waterproof motorcycle boots are made with Lorica. When it comes to shoes, I normally prefer leather — leather looks good, breaks in easily, breathes well, and is usually very durable. The Sidi Jasmine Rain Boots look like leather boots, and I had to …

Shift Women’s Silhouette Jeans Review Ladies, you wanted it — now you can have it! The Shift Silhouette Kevlar-reinforced, stretch riding jeans are protective and sexy! Low-rise jeans with a women’s specific fit that hugs our curves; there’s no need to settle for men’s baggy riding jeans. ATGATT: All the gear, all the time. Many …

Shift “RPM” Women’s Motorcycle Gloves A short-cuffed textile and leather glove with protection and attitude. Even with hard knuckle armor, these gloves are very comfortable while riding and they breathe well. Some time ago, when I first started riding, I was shopping at the local motorcycle stores for gear when I slid on a pair …

The Shift “Viper” Jacket This is definitely not a cookie-cutter motorcycle jacket! The Shift Viper stands out from the crowd. It has vintage-look leather and CE approved protectors. That provides protection and a modern design lends plenty of style. I have definitely found my calling in life: a “job” riding motorcycles and reviewing clothing. Does …

Shift “Dynasty” Women’s Motorcycle Gloves Review Short-cuffed leather gloves with integrated knuckle armor and reinforced palms for extra protection. Every motorcyclist needs a variety of gloves depending on the riding conditions she (or he) will be in. That means warm or cold, longer gauntlet or short cuffs and leather vs. mesh or textile. I love …

Firstgear Glacier Women’s Gloves Review The Firstgear Women’s TPG Glacier Gloves are comfortable and waterproof winter gloves. No insulation in the palms increases the effectiveness of heated grips. A heel skid on the palm and padding on the side of the hand and wrist give added protection, and reflective piping adds nighttime visibility. One fall …

Scorpion “Haley” Pants Review These low-rise leather pants have CE approved knee and hip armor. They also include adjustment straps on the legs for a custom fit. With all the finishing touches, the Haley pants are anything but boring. Leather or textile riding pants — that is the question. When I started shopping for gear, …

Scorpion Elektra Jacket Review The Scorpion Women’s Elektra Jacket is a beautiful armored leather jacket with a large degree of adjustability to suit many figures. Vents and a full-sleeve insulated liner provide the rider with versatility for warm or cool days. Background There was some debate on another website about whether I put safety or …

Polo “Drive” PT-P Bahiro Jacket The Bahiro jacket from German manufacturer Polo is a real all-rounder. It’s warm and waterproof for winter and vented for summer. It’s suitable for touring or commuting, and not bad-looking either. A discussion of warm, waterproof winter wear on my bike club’s mailing-list indicates the changing season as reliably as …

Joe Rocket “Cleo” Women’s Gloves The Joe Rocket Ladies’ Cleo short gloves are made from mesh and leather for warm-weather riding. Leather reinforcements and high density padding provide added protection. Available in four colors, the Joe Rocket Ladies’ Cleo Gloves will fit any budget. The weather in Northwestern Montana is finally hot — for us …

Icon Hooligan 54 Women’s Jacket Review The Icon Hooligan 54 is a fun — even a little flashy — women’s mesh jacket for hot days on the bike. An insulated, water-resistant liner warms it up for versatility, and CE-approved elbow and shoulder armor are necessities in case of the unexpected. I think leather offers the …

Daytona Lady Star GTX Women’s Motorcycle Boots Retro styling conceals modern features in this top-of-the-range touring boot. All-season, waterproof, and with a built-in height advantage that shorter riders will really appreciate. I promised myself a pair of Daytona Lady Star boots when I passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists riding test, following a glowing recommendation …

TCX Sunray Women’s Motorcycle Boots The TCX Women’s Sunray Gore-Tex Boots are leather women’s specific boots with plenty of reinforcement for added protection. Once again, standing in the middle of yet another motorcycle shop, I was frustrated. Finding a shop that actually stocks women’s riding jackets was difficult enough; finding women’s riding boots was tougher …

Sidi Vertigo Lei Boots Review Sidi has not forgotten the woman rider! The Sidi Vertigo Lei boots are not a frou-frou-fashion woman’s motorcycle accessory designed by men who think they know what a motorcycle riding woman should look like. These are the real thing — just as high-tech, strong and safe as the best Sidi …

Joe Rocket Jet Set Jacket Review A well-constructed, stylish leather jacket with elbow and shoulder protection for the fashion-conscious rider. Cut specifically for a woman’s body, the Joe Rocket Jet Set Jacket also has adjustability through the waist for a custom fit. The Variable Flow ventilation system and a removable insulated vest provide flexibility for …

How about: 1) Versatility – a removable windproof liner takes these textile and mesh pants from cool mornings to hot afternoons. 2) Options – Scorpion’s Savannah Pants are available in three colors. 3) Value – …

Alpinestars “Stella” SP-3 Motorcycle Gloves A well-made pair of women’s leather gloves from the Alpinestars “Stella” women’s motorcycle clothing line. The Stella SP-3 gloves have plenty of padding and reinforcement. Ladies, if you are like me, you’ve found it frustrating to find the perfect gear specifically designed for women. I live in a small town …

Sidi Doha Motorcycle Boots The Sidi Doha boots are very comfortable and good-looking. While they may not be equipped with the ultimate in protective features and they’re not waterproof, they are a good choice for casual motorcycling. I was originally asked to do the evaluation of the Sidi Vertigo Lei boots (review), which is now complete …

REV’IT! Factor Women’s Motorcycle Pants REV’IT! has an extensive line of women’s motorcycle clothing for all seasons. This is the combination of the “Cami” top and “Panta” bottom base layers. Also the “Factor” Ladies Trouser. And the women’s version of the “Fahrenheit” gloves and the “Jade” boots. All of this gear makes a great year-round …

Rukka Sapphire Women’s Motorcycle Jacket   Summary:  Extremely well designed and executed with style for a women’s fit.  Very good attention to detail and absolutely waterproof and highly windproof. Lack of venting is not a shortfall as the outer shell breathes well — the Gore-Tex layer does its job in superb fashion. Appreciating the shortfalls …

Aqua Leopard Skin! WOW! What can I say, other than the Cortech LNX is not your typical women’s motorcycle jacket. Let me start with a couple of confessions: I just started riding motorcycles (as a passenger ONLY). What is my other confession? I am addicted to fashion. I love clothes, especially clothes that look like …

Women’s Joe Rocket Lotus Textile Jacket As I pulled this jacket out of the box, I have to admit, my expectations were not high. I had just reviewed the trendy Cortech LNX Leopard print leather jacket and I did not think that the Lotus jacket could measure up. Boy, was I surprised! This jacket looks just as …

Women’s Deerskin Motorcycle Jacket It’s been a while since I’ve posted any reviews of women’s motorcycle clothing, so when Sunset Creek Deerskin asked if we’d like to see the women’s version of their 1408 deerskin motorcycle jacket, it was a big “10-4”. The 1408 is based on their men’s 1385 jacket, but the zipper on …

Olympia Women’s Perforated Leather Gloves In all my years of riding and pillioning (a new word I just made up!) on motorcycles, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a woman wearing full leathers and race equipment. Not that it doesn’t happen, because I have seen some photos of women at track days who are dressed …

Clover “Beverly” Women’s Motorcycle Jacket Review Clover may seem like a strange brand name for a motorcycle clothing manufacturer. It’s not clear how the name originated, but I’m told by my Italian speaking friends that “clover” in Italian means…clover in English. I’m not sure what that tells us, but I do know that this Clover …

It doesn’t get much cooler than this. The Firstgear Hypertex Mesh II jacket has excellent air flow. The pants aren’t quite as cool if you’re riding behind a fairing however. Both the jacket and pants are very comfortable. The jacket runs true to size; the pants seem a touch short. The jacket zips to pants …

Firstgear Hypertex Mesh Women’s Pants It doesn’t make any sense, at least to me, to have the FirstGear Hypertex Meshtex mesh jacket (review) without having a matching set of pants. I don’t like to wear jeans when riding, first because I don’t think that jeans offer even a minimum amount of protection and also because jeans just …

Women’s Motorcycle Boots I liked the looks of the men’s Specter Road Motorcycle Touring boots as soon as I saw them, so I jumped at the opportunity to try the women’s version. The webBikeWorld crew claims that the men’s touring boots are some of the most comfortable they’ve tried.  Rick wears them both on and …
