Hi Guys,

Ive just got my ped back on the road and would like some kit that i could use to commute to work on my ped but will also be good enough to use for a motorbike once i have my license.

many thanks

Every rider is different and therefore imo it would be best if you visited a local bike shop that sells gear or J&S.

I hadn't even taken my CBT when I purchased my full set of gear.. I ended up getting a Frank Thomas textile trousers and jacket for £79.99 each form J&S.

Always be sure to try on the gear and fully zip up, test for comfort move around walk etc.. also check out the padding on the jacket, does it move.. is it replaceable.. the protection on my jacket is held in place inside a pocket witch is held by velcro, needless to say it comes loose now and then.. be sure to inspect before you buy as opposed to buying what looks nice.

£120-150 for both or each?.. I have recently been window shopping gear via ebay and have found unbranded and cheap brands that offer jackets and trousers for £50-60 each.. although have decided against.. instead buying the gear I need, when I need it.. bit by bit.

Each shop sells different brands and sometimes their own brands..

Also ask the shop if it's armour is CE Approved..
