I got the Rynox Tornado. From the looks of it, feels it will provide decent amount of ventilation. But it has a single combined liner as compared to Air

Yet to try it in Mumbai climate (which sadly has only 2 seasons summer and rains).

True that, infact Bombay has 3 seasons; hot, very hot, and wet.
I have the option of picking up the Tornado, infact I had selected it but got the GT just for its mesh.

Picked up some stuff while travelling.
1. Icon Stryker Vest ( comfort , ventilation and protection )
2. Scorpion SG3 gloves ( great all around protection )
3. A * SP-2 Gloves ( fantastic fit , finish and feel , for aggressive street riding )
4. Alpinestars GP-R Leather Jacket ( superb ventilation and design , top notch leather )
5. SIDI Apex boots.( great for short city rides . add insoles for off bike comfort )
6. and my favorite Icon Overlord Prime Hero Leather Jacket. ( attack fit , premium grade leather , amazing design elements ).

Picked up a pair of Joe Rocket GPX 2.0 to replace my AGVSports full gauntlets. Pretty good fit and finish, and like the mix of natural leather and pittard leather. The knuckle guard has a clever slit to aid ventilation. Although to be honest I still love the carbon fiber knuckle guards on my earlier glove.

Attaching a pic, to the right is my earlier pair that has served me well for the last 2 yrs/ 40,000 kms and will still be used for city jaunts.

Tried my Rynox Tornado jacket. Wanted to check out its ventilation so went for a ride late evening. Since temperature has dropped down considerably in Mumbai, I tried using it without thermal liner, and boy I was frozen till my bones .

Tried it again during day time riding to office in peak afternoon, and it did provide a good ventilation.

Also picked up a pair of Rynox Kombat gloves. L size felt too tight hence went for XL.

Now that I've completed my set of riding gear, I am looking out for the same for my wife. It is really hard to find female riding jackets anywhere in Hyderabad. Not even HD guys keep it.


I can still buy gear online based on sizing charts and people's reviews, but not for her for sure. She would wanna try it before buying.

So first of all i wanna know the good ones available in the market and then the best place to buy them in Delhi/NCR.

Right now I have the Dyna jacket by Cramster in mind, would like to get some more suggestions and ideas.

Hey guys, needed some advice. I ride a 390 and am now planning to start doing small 100km rides around the city. Can someone recommend a decent pair of gloves and a riding jacket that are AFFORDABLE? I've saved up around 3k for both.. Money doesn't come easy to college students :P
Planning to complete the purchase by Saturday, so a quick response will be much appreciated!

Cheers

Riding jacket in 3k is not realistic mate. Save up a bit more and you have the Spartan range starting at around 4700 range and the cheapest gloves from DSG costing around 1.5k which is a good bet for your kind of usage.

Thanks for your inputs abhinav! I guess the jacket will have to wait. Any idea where I can get the gloves from in Bangalore?

Let's Gear Up, HSR Layout would be a good place to find gloves. Nice people, bikers themselves. Contact them on Facebook before going, their shop is closed sometimes as they are off to track days and racing events rather frequently

I am using SPG phaeton, hey are great with good armor, they cost about 2k. I hear good reviews about Rynox but have not tried them personally. Do not go for full leather or full gauntlet first up, you will never wear them again. Whatever you decide, my advise is to go to a shop and try before you buy. You might get offers online but if does not fit you would have wasted your hard earned money. Happy biking

Yep, I was in their showroom, they have couple of good options, mesh as well as cordura.

Another place you could try is the Cramster's outlet in Cunningham Road. I have been using the Twister touring gloves for almost a year now in Chennai and I am happy with them. They also have strap on elbow protectors which you may look at if you are not buying a jacket now. I bought it a couple of weeks back along with their inner knee protector and used them in a trip to B'lore and back last week and I found them to be very comfortable.

This thread has details of all the shops in Bangalore selling city gloves, semi gauntlets and full gauntlets at different price ranges. The Cramster TRG2 is a great option, used mine for 4 years before it gave up. Check the pair carefully before buying for inconsistent stitching as some have complained about that.
