A lightweight and versatile garment that’s a valuable layering component in cool weather, or as a pullover shirt for knocking around the race or rally site on cool mornings or evenings. Folds up small enough to have along in case the weather changes and you would like some protection from stiff breezes and chill. Made of Windstopper® fabric that stops, as you would imagine, all wind from drawing your body heat away. Elbows feature light padding. A handy and practical clothing item to have along
Made of a polyester/cotton blend, this comfortable knit jersey maintains a comfortable ‘touch’ even when wet. Lightly padded elbows and lycra collar and cuffs ensure durability and a good fit. These are printed using dye sublimation technology which helps keep the color from fading out quickly after a lot of use and repeated washing. Simple is good.
Ultralight Rain Pants
These waterproof nylon pants pack away small yet are strong enough to thwart rain and road spray. If you ride in jeans and a jacket and the weather changes during the day, they’ll get you home dry. Ultralight Rain Pants self-store in a 4"×5"×1.5" integral zippered pocket. Long waterproof side zips and fly zips make them easy to get on and off over footwear. Fully seam sealed. An elastic drawstring waist keeps them up. Not intended for hard everyday use, but perfect to stash in a courier bag, fairing pocket or wherever you might need them when it decides to rain. Never worry about where to find garbage bags and duct tape.
One of the best technology crossovers from bicycling to motorcycling are padded, stretchy shorts. Really. If you’ve never worn these things on a long ride, you owe it to yourself. They seem to add another couple hundred miles to a day, as they keep the ‘fanny agony’ at bay longer than yer basic briefs. These are a modified version of bicycle shorts, cut slightly shorter in the legs, and with all the Lycra and fleece of the originals.
UPF Outdoor Shirt
Made of quick drying, packable Supplex nylon ripstop, this shirt is ideal for travel. It packs up small, hangs out quickly for a wrinkle-free look, and will give you a ‘presentable’ outfit that’s great everywhere. Long sleeves, a standard collar, and two chest pockets enhance the utility of this traditionally-styled shirt. The supplex nylon fabric looks and feels like cotton, but wicks moisture and provides protection from UV light. The long front and tail will stay inside your waistband. Wash this durable shirt in the sink and it will be dry almost immediately. Provides a UPF of 35 for UV protection. Green, stone and blue.
UPF Convertible Pants
An ideal match for the Outdoor Shirt, these six pocket 3.8 oz. Supplex nylon pants are ready for a range of weather conditions. Pull them on in the cold morning air, then zip off the legs when the sun climbs. The fitted elastic waistband, fly front and low profile leg zippers let these pants fit in from the Guggenheim Exhibit to Tuolomene Meadows. Provides a UPF of about 40 for UV protection.
Microfiber Packable Shirt
If you do not yet have a microfiber shirt, give this one a try. It’s a quality shirt and a nice bargain.The great thing about all microfiber shirts is if (when...) you spill a soft drink (or whatever) all over yourself, simply rinse and wring them dry and you’re immediately ready to be a klutz all over again. Try that with a regular T shirt and you’ll end up wearing a wet T shirt for the next several hours. This long wearing shirt has several useful pockets and a nice clean design. In hot weather it’s cool to wear and provides good sun protection. It’s great to have a microfiber shirt along for hot weather, as a change of clothing, or for an extra layer on a cool evening.
The best travel shirt. Summer weight Supplex nylon has a unique moisture-management treatment to help disperse perspiration. It looks and feels like cotton, but dries much faster. A loose cut and strategically placed mesh panels allow plenty of airflow. This shirt has a UPF (UV Protection Factor) of 30. It’s extra high, flip-up collar protects your neck and the rubber buttons won’t scratch anything. One chest pocket and one ‘Napoleon’ pocket
Supplex® Zip-Off Pants
Not only are these pants more versatile and lighter than your jeans...they’ll wear more comfortably, too. One secret is the two layer Supplex® twill which is soft-but-strong and has been specially treated to move moisture away from your skin. Both the seat and knees are reinforced for long wear. The waist features a unique conical curve for a perfect fit over your hips. A soft microfiber chamois lines the waistband. A gusseted crotch provides freedom of movement and ankle zips allow you to slip them on and off over your boots. Two front cargo pockets and two rear hook & loop pockets. Great UPF protection. These are the best and most comfortable zip-off leg travel pants made.
Wick Dry Liner Socks
Comfort and extra warmth that feels great all day long. Flat enough to layer in combination with medium weight socks on chilly days without cramping or bunching inside your boots. These are super-comfortable, pack in nano-space, and dry out fast after being washed in a motel bathroom sink.
During a day-long, hammering rain we all know that the most ‘waterproof’ of boots can sometimes leak. Or at least seem kinda damp the next day. SealSkinz Socks are made of a thin, stretchy, waterproof/breathable fabric that is constructed in a seamless, comfortable method that allows perspiration to escape, while keeping your tootsies dry. Their 100% waterproof engineered fabric was developed by DuPont scientists and really works. They pack smaller than the smallest rain overboots and are great to carry on a trip for those long, soggy days. Dry feet go a long ways towards making foul weather riding tolerable.
After swarms of mosquitoes & flying pests play an irritating little game of chicken with you, THEN they bite you! Keep the little devils off your face, neck, and head instead of running around willy-nilly and swatting at the air like a crazy person. Or smearing yourself with smelly, greasy concoctions of poisons.
Merino Wool Socks
These performance socks are made from the highest-grade wool available, resulting in unmatched comfort and moisture management capability. Because the wool fibers have a natural crimp to them, they are cushiony and return to their original shape instantly. Made with just enough stretch nylon to ensure a snug fit. Non-itchy as well as being machine wash and dryable, these socks are at home inside motorcycle boots like no others we’ve tried. Light Weight is grey or black, while the Medium is grey.
