Acerbis Adventure suit £355
Tested by Rupert Paul Time tested eight months/two events What’s good? Unlike a great deal of offroad gear, this suit is not embarrassing to be seen in and that’s the main reason I got it. What you get is a light, two-piece riding suit with removable armour and over-boot trousers. There are three layers: waterproof and thermal inners and the abrasion resistant fabric outer shell. If you keep all three you have a decent adventure bike suit for the road, but I’ve just used the outer part for a week of Isle of Man trail riding and the Hafren Enduro. It’s super-technical: there are cool air vents on the chest and arms, wicking inner fabric, unzippable sleeves, lots of pockets, a minimap panel on the left arm, and good windproofing. It’s very comfortable, too. Washing couldn’t be easier. It’s almost dry by the time it comes out of the machine. I really like it.
What’s not? Wearing the trousers over my Acerbis motocross boots leaves them vulnerable to hot exhausts. And some threads have started to fray.
