    I've got one of the helmets from last year,bought as a stop gap because my old one was due replacement.
    Quite happy with it,of course I haven't bounced it off anything either.
    I have a pair of the textile pants from several years ago,I'm very happy with as well.
    Bought the wife a textile jacket a few years ago as wel,l that seems to be very good value,

    I do like that many of the items are "Waterproof to 10,000mm"..may just have to use them next time I go snorkeling...

    My 2 cents worth......I found the sox good, I thought the Kevlar jeans were fine until someone posted a review on this board abt cheap kevlar jeans.....It certainly was food for thought ! Also , when I compare the quality and amount of |Kevlar to my RJ ones, the comparison is not good.

    Re motor bike pants at abt $100, last year they had a few left overs at my Aldi for $50...quality was excellent , reflective, padded, adjustable waist. Unfortunately, at 193cm tall,XXL  length was just a little short. Sold 'em to a very happy camper on ebay.

     

    FYI, if U see a lot of one item still available late today, you may find it on special next week.

    Re: Motorbike gear Specials

    Had a look at the full face helmets,seemed good value if you've got a $79.99 head as came with spare visor,spare insert liner & a drop down sun visor but didn't like the clip on the strap to strap it on,thought it flimsy & also thought periphal vision wasn't good but yep liked the socks too & bought them.

    Brought the bag, a good thing too but I also bought the more expensive pair of jeans and they have a lot of material in them and lots of removable padding too.

    We'll see how they last and hopefully not how well they save my ***!

    That's interesting, LR.I think that my dodgy ones may be the cheaper ones...nothing removable there.

    I will go back and check out the more expensive ones.

    OK LR, I took your info and bought a pair today....now I gotta figure out where to get padding for those interior side pockets.

    happy with this good purchase.

    Yep the helmet was a fail for me too....couldn't get the arms of my glasses to pass the chin pads.

     

    Life without a Tmax is possible, but would almost be useless…

    Re: Motorbike gear Specials

    Most of the Aldi bike gear is pretty good but i did buy their jeans once & the stitching started to give way within one days use , took them back & got another pair which did the same so unless they have improved them i'd be wary of the jeans !

    Red ones always go faster but blue ones go pretty quick , but now blue ones are the way to go😄

    Hehe , a$79.99 head would actually be quite upmarket for some bods 😀

    Re: Motorbike gear Specials

    Must have been very bad luck with the jeans.One pair I've had for a few years & still good,the other I bought last year on knock-down special of $40.00 with pockets in the knees for pads & no problem so far,both very comfortable but of course neither have the kevlar coverage of the more expensive pairs.
