Hands On Motorcycle Clothing Reviews for Trusted for Over 20 Years.

Every rider is different and every use case is different so when it comes to finding the perfect motorcycle clothing the goal isn’t trying to find the “best”, it is finding the “right” piece of clothing for your needs. The bad news of course is that with all the options, styles, materials and so on available when shopping for any motorcycle clothing is mind boggling. At webBikeworld we’ve been reviewing motorcycle gear for over twenty years so we know a thing or two about getting it right. Read our reviews on the best gear.

Our review process for testing motorcycle clothing normally takes four to six weeks. We will wear a jacket, pants, helmet or gloves on long rides and short rides (about 10 hours of riding). Back in our testing facility (our garage) we will inspect the construction, materials as well as all the things that matter from a practicality standpoint.

Over the years we have reviewed a lot of jackets, pants, gloves, underwear and much more and we can barely keep up with the new ones coming onto the market every year. Below, we have listed all the brands we have tested (and some we haven’t). You can simply click on the link to see all the reviews we have conducted for each brand. We hope this makes finding the right gear for you a little easier.

Motorcycle Clothing Product Reviews

Introduction Gerbing has been producing heated gear for more than 40 years. They have two product lines, identified as 12V and 7V. The 12V line of products is aimed at Powersports, as they require the gear to be plugged into a 12-volt power source. The 7V line of products uses a rechargeable 7-volt lithium battery …

Background When I first started riding there was absolutely no motorcycle clothing dedicated to women riders. Even just 10 years ago women’s motorcycle pants were still difficult to find and those that were available tended to make your backside look like the Stay-Puff marshmallow man. Although we still have less than a third the choices …

First Impressions A Niche Filled Getting stuck without suitable riding gear when encountering challenging riding conditions can be uncomfortable, even painful or dangerous. Anyone who’s spent any serious time in the saddle can relate and share an experience or two illustrating this. Many manufacturers will tell you they can build convertible gear to meet a …

A Promise of Adventure In some ways, motorcycling is all about appealing to your inner dream. Think about it – adventure-style bikes now dominate the sales charts with the promise (made largely to an aging motorcyclist population in Europe and the US) that these bikes can cross the Sahara, plow paths through thick jungle, and …

Introduction One never has enough riding gear, and this includes gloves, of all types and purpose. Gloves are, to degrees, like helmets in reflecting specific functionality and application along with a helping of personality and, hopefully, equal regard for personal protective gear safety. In doing my usual scoping of the goodies in the accessory department …

The Forcefield Effect Last year marked my first encounter with Forcefield Body Armour products when I reviewed their Tech 2 base layer and Sport Tubes. It’s become my preferred everyday riding gear ever since because it keeps me dry and warm when it’s cold and cooler when it’s hot out. I absolutely love the Tech …

Introduction It’s not often that I write a multi-part review but I felt it was necessary in the case of the Cousin Jeremy suit. I wanted to be able to not only describe the details of the suit but also be able to report on how the suit it breaks in and how this impacts …

Quick specs: Retail price: $219 (shirt, with armor) / $199 (pants, with armor), CE level 1/2 armor (see full review) Early May I received the Forcefield Sport Shirt 1 X-V and Sport Pants 1 from Motonation, the North American distributor for a few popular brands including Forcefield, SIDI, and Trilobite (as well as their house …

Introduction When it comes to armor for motorcycle riders, Knox is likely a familiar name. Knox not only produces standalone protectives and armor for over two dozen motorcycle apparel manufacturers but they also have their own line of jackets, pants, and gloves. Some of which we’ve even reviewed at wBW here. Knox was established back …

A Jacket Designed for Airflow & Not to be Noticed REV’IT! designed the Tracer Air Overshirt to be a part of its casual workwear collection. This is gear that looks like regular casual clothing and not motorcycle gear. The Tracer Air Overshirt just looks like a simple lightweight jacket, but it has construction and features …

Introduction Welcome to the third and final installment in this Motonation Apparel Series that has already featured the Pursang Jacket and the Cappra Vented Mesh Pant – this one highlights the Phantom Textile Pants – as in two-pair. Motonation is a well-known source for premier riding gear, having been in the import business for some …

Introduction I’m not seeing much, if anything, in the way of Motonation riding gear being worn or being sold here in Canada. It has been difficult to get a feel for the products… until now.  A well-known source for premier riding gear, Motonation is a long time importer with significant design and marketing experience which …

Introduction Welcome to another installment of the Motonation Apparel Textile Gear Series featuring the Cappra Vented (Textile) Pants. And yes, I know Kathy Koewler reviewed a pair of them in May 2018, so this is a refresh – and these are the Sand tone variant, changing everything, no? A well-known source for premier riding gear, …

We have reviewed dozens and dozens of clothing brands over the years at WBW so we know a thing or two about which brands our editors love. We also see the analytics on the site too so we know which brands get the most views and attention from our readers. Between consumer interest, our editor’s opinions and generally who we think is really innovating in the clothing and gear space, here are the most popular brands at the moment.

Alpinestars

Alpinestars

alpinestars logo

Alpinestars makes technical, high performance protective gear for Motorcycle, Motocross, and Auto Racing and more recently for action sports like Adventure/Touring, Mountain Biking and Cycling.

It all started in 1963 when a leather craftsman by the name of Sante Mazzarolo began creating the first Alpinestars branded products. At that time a new sport called motocross was establishing itself.

Alpinestars makes a massive range of motorcycle clothing. There’s a reason Alpinestars tops our list in a lot of categories and their R&D and constant innovation plus reasonable prices and great quality are hard to beat.

Joe Rocket

Joe Rocket Jacket

Joe Rocket is affordable and great quality for the price point. Their clothing is a fraction of what you can pay for the same look and feel elsewhere.

While there are a lot of copycat brands out there you can’t say that about Joe Rocket with their signature cool looking clothing and gear. We love their leather classic jackets the most, perfect for the cafe racer in you.

Dainese

dainese motorcycle jackets

“Dainese uses innovation and new technology to create protective gear and clothing for motorcycle, bike, equestrian and winter sports” according to the Dainese official website.

Started in 1972 the team there makes not only motorcycle boots but all types of other protective gear (back protectors, gloves, airbags and more). A very focused R&D outfit, Dainese was the first to develop a super cool instant-deployment airbag suit and jacket system – it basically blows up like an inflatable balloon to protect you in a crash.

Combine the basics and amazing looks and it is hard to look further than Dainese when buying quality gear.

Icon

Icon Motorcycle Jackets

Makers of Helmets, Jackets, Gloves, Pants, Footwear the team at Icon is one of the largest street based protective motorcycle apparel brands in the world.

Founded in 2002, ICON exploded onto the scene with unabashed attitude – maybe that’s why we love them so much.

Their core mission is “protecting riders whenever and however we can, knowing that reckoning day is coming for all of us”.

REVIT

Revit Motorcycle Jackets

REV'IT Logo

With a focus on innovation and well designed motorcycle clothing, REV’IT knows how to make cool clothing and gear.

We’ve often described REV’IT as a company that “gets it”. Their focus on motorcycle gloves shows they know riders really well.  We love for example that most of the gloves are constructed with seasonality in mind, which most riders know make a huge difference.

We love that REVIT makes a wide range of jackets for both men and women. Available at a broad range of price points it is not hard to find a REVIT motorcycle jacket for every riding style, budget and body type out there.
