Hi all,

Just thinking about new helmet/gloves and jackets and came across this brand. Looks good and available in the UK. Has anyone had dealings with this brand, is the quality excellent/good/average.

Since I got rid of my riding gear when I got rid of my last bike, I'll need to get completely re-outfitted. I have no intention of buying any of the Ducati Scrambler apparel though. It looks like really nice stuff and all, but no thanks.

Like Bestia I'm probably going to get the Bell Bullitt helmet, even though it's quite spendy. I am also thinking of the Bell Custom 500 3/4 with some 100% goggles (which happens to be what the Scrambler branded gear is), but I would prefer full face protection.

For jackets, whatever I end up will have shoulder, elbow, and back protection. Otherwise I just don't see the point. I'm not planning on leather, even though it's advantages are obvious. I still have a few months to figure that out. Here is a list of some of the jackets I'm considering:

Roland Sands Tracker Jacket
Roland Sands Vandal Jacket
REV'IT! Windsor Jacket
Speed and Strength Dogs Of War Textile Jacket
Speed and Strength Stars and Stripes Jacket
Roland Sands HESHER II KHAKI
Rust And Redemption™Jacket| Speed and Strength
Icon 1000 Oildale Jacket

I still haven't figured out the pants situation, or if I'll just risk the lower half of my body with jeans.

For boots I'm bouncing between real motorcycle boots, some Red Wings, or Corcoran Jump Boots.

Not to preach to anyone, but considering how common lower leg injuries are in wrecks and how difficult it is to repair feet and ankles, I'd highly suggest legit motorcycle boots with lots of protection. Dainese boots are extremely comfortable and easily fit underneath jeans without looking too Storm Trooper-ish. Alpinestars makes several boots that are low profile and do not look silly for cruising around town. I took a screenshot from one of my videos since I don't have any actual pictures of them with jeans instead of a suit, and as you can see they don't stand out at all under a pair of jeans.


These are the ones I'm wearing here: Dainese Torque RS Out Air Boots - RevZilla





Here are some other ones (Alpinestars) I have that are more ATV/dirtbike usage but actually work surprisingly well for street and are very comfortable. I picked these up off craiglist for $40 and they were new :D

This is my debate...

BELSTAFF CLASSIC TRIALMASTER TOURIST TROPHY



Or

BARBOUR INTERNATIONAL



Both will take D30 elbow, shoulder and back armour as well!

Although these don't have to be the BRANDS, I'm simply interested in a TT style jacket with a sprinkling of protection at least...

Now boots, I'll get back to you, and gloves, AHHHH...>:D>:D>:D>:D
Not sure if this is one you're interested in, but on another forum I frequent I saw this second hand Belstaff for what seems to be a decent price:

Belstaff Discovery Jacket - Expedition Portal
