Adventure Spec Linesman pants

Click for exceedingly detailed long version.

  • Stretchy but reassuringly stout
  • Nice deep pockets
  • Forcefield hip and knee armour included
  • Zip leg ends
  • CE AA certified
  • Long cut reaches right down to the ankles
  • Floating knee armour pockets tuck into tall boots
  • They’re not black!

  • £300
  • Heavy with full armour
  • Too clammy for southern Morocco in March
  • Unnecessary flappy ankle hem straps
  • Blue colour is a bit boring
  • Close-fitting, coarse woven fabric not particularly pleasant against the skin and can snag

Hi Chris,
my thoughts on armour - or fitted armour in external clothing - in the long version.
The jacket is Mosko Moto who, along with Adv Spec, I find more 'responsive' than Revit, though they do design an off-puttingly massive range of good looking gear.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
