    I am looking to acquire new biking gear. I have wolf gear currently and from a comfort point its spot on from a rain repellent perspective its pants. The gear use would be UK (mainly Scotland) and main land EU when i kick the kids out.

    What do you know is worth putting on the shortlist?

    Cheers

    Very impressed with the Held Gore-tex gear that I've just bought from Louis-moto - the Held Savona 6526 Jacket and the matching Pesaro 6569 Trousers. Still on offer at €349.95 for the jacket and €249.95 for the trousers - which is significantly less than the RRP.

    If you can stretch to it Rukka, probably the best on the market.

    Yeh I've got Rukka to replace my ageing Hein Gericke kit which did very well.
    My Rukka gear gets used every day when I commute in all weathers and its done just fine. They have some nice touches as well in their gear.

    I believe Fowlers have 20 percent of everything this weekend in the clothing dept! Daytona are fab road boots.

    Rukka and Daytona

    Yep, that's pretty much what I live in when on the bike

    For boots I can really recommend the Sidi Adventure GTX boot, comfortable, great protection, and not a drop of water gets in mine!

    I have the Hein Gericke Tuareg suit (pants & jacket) and it holds up in all but the heaviest of downpours, last year coming back from the Ardennes in what was a torrential downpour that flooded parts of Belgium & the Netherlands, I was "mostly dry".

    I'm not the guy to ask for gloves, I have Alpinestar goretex gloves that are about as waterproof as a sieve in a bathtub.

    Hmm
    I got these trousers Travel textile trousers 2.0 | Pharao Tour 2 SympaTex Motorradhose online kaufen and they are the warmest i ever owned(without the thermal liner) which is fine with me as i ride all year. 100% waterproof so far and that was even after the sh*t ride home from Inverness last year where it nearly rained for all 13 hours.
    Boots i am using the Army arctic gortex boots. They are waterproof but not as high as bike boots.Used them at the Tauern rally and never had cold or wet feet:cool2:The big plus is that they are only £65 new. No worrys about protection as they are not just thin leather but proper insulated so you have quiet a bit protection. Ask SteveT next time you see him as he is the ne which put me on to them. Good thing about them s that you can walk well in them,obviously:rolleyes:
    Ordering from germany is dead easy and if you look out for specials you can get the trousers for around 200euro
