Motorcycle Clothing Reviews


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 …

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 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 wBW has been doing product reviews, collections, and new product line overviews and long-term evaluations of adventure touring equipment for years with REV’IT products prominently featured… for all the right reasons – they have a diverse product line featuring innovative and versatile riding gear. Past Gear Limitations & Current Option Diversity For most of …

When it comes to the Women’s Automag 2 jacket,  ICON Motosports claims, “We understand the core needs of the street-focused rider.” They aren’t lying. The jacket does many things and does them all well, which is a rare find for a price under $250. The Automag 2 doesn’t just perform well, it also looks the …

Introduction REV’IT! gear has generally received good marks from us (reviews here) and other motorcycle gear publications. The company’s wide range of products and styles means that it serves a large portion of the market. Part of that market that’s been growing considerably lately is the segment of gear that blends street-clothes style with the …

Amazing Comfort To be honest, I never even considered a legging style pant for riding which is odd because I often wear leggings or compression leggings to the gym or as comfort wear at home. The Oxford Super Leggings opened my eyes to this great new idea of comfort and protection when riding. These form-fitting …

Vintage Aesthetic Gone Modern Throwback! The early 60s meets mid-80s or something like that. Belstaff meets Barbour meets M65 Field jacket. The MH1000 jacket from ICON 1000 is the definition of Vintage-inspired style paired with modern touches. Cordura denim lends itself to the rugged look, with black leather accents on the shoulders and arms reeling …

Introduction I really appreciate when a manufacturer engages with me in regards to a product that I reviewed. I’ll take the negative with the positive because the important thing is it shows they’re paying attention to independent and unbiased reviews like those we publish here at Web Bike World. The story of this review you …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Revit Motorcycle Clothing 2005 One of the toughest jobs for any company is developing and releasing a product line into an established market.  There are so many obstacles to consider, like developing and executing a marketing strategy, establishing brand recognition and implementing a distribution and logistics network.

Alpinestars Drystar Suit There’s a strong correlation between my desire to sleep in as late as possible on a work day and a steadily declining regard for wearing proper safety gear on my morning commute. I have distant memories of having staggered out of bed with enough time to toast a bagel and eat it …

Street Sharp Shirt-Jac With A Wisp of Protection The REV’IT! Westport overshirt is what we used to call a “shirt-jac”, or shirt jacket. You might call this an 80/20 combo of street wear with a touch of protection. The outer shell is a fairly hefty 11 oz. Cordura denim with what feels like (but isn’t) a …
