Winter Wear

Here's the gear I worn through this winter.


Hein Gericke textile jacket. It has a Cordura outer with a Gore Tex membrane. It is reasonably warm, waterpoof & windproof. It is comfortable and has a removable liner that I don't use. Its best feature is a detachable neck & chin protector.   


Bib & braces fabric trousers with a warm fleece lining by Hein Gericke. These are baggy enough to wear trousers under so were handy when I commuted to work.


I seldom wear motorcycling boots. I usually wear a pair of "Cripsi" leather walking boots or "V12" leather work boots. If its particularly cold & wet I wear rigger boots


I mostly wear a pair of leather "Duchinni" gloves. These are pretty warm when used with heated grips. If it's wet I wear a pair of fabric mitts with pair of thermal inners if it's cold. The mitts are made by "Extremities" for hikers.    


  1. It looks like you have your Winter gear well sorted...that picture of you...makes me think of the 'Captain America' movie I was watching this weekend..."Suit up!!".

  2. 40 years of riding year-round has taught me that you need decent gear. I never though of myself as a super-hero, but now you mention it….
