    just wanted to praise the Oxford suit that i used last week. On the ride from Wetherby to Berwick on Tweed most of the North Sea landed on me and yet I was completely dry.My suit is shown -the jacket and trousers (Mondial) and no I didn't zip them together,The trousers have braces - belts are for under 30's and coupled with daytona twin zip boots i had no ingress at all.My Shoei visor wasnt any good -with pinfold thing -getting rain inside but that was all.
    so well done Oxford - good stuff and reasonable if you dont want to spend Rukka type money

    Is your pinlock fitted correctly?
    The two pins that hold it in place are excentric and should be turned to give the correct fit.
    I've never had a problem with any of my pinlocks and I've had quite a few.

    It was warm so just the inner lining but if cold I have a rukka long john/ top which cost about £35 -and maybe a t shirt on top.I didn't notice the rukked up right leg but posing for photos isnt my thing!
    the jacket has big fold back flaps on the front to ventilate - not used much in UK!

    I got back from a week in Scotland last weekend and you could have written my review of my kit Bazza.
    I too have the Mondial suit and we rode for a good few hours in absolutely torrential rain. Other than where my buff had got soaked and wicked around my neck I was bone dry.
    It was the first real test of this kit and it performed brilliantly.
    I’ll add the jackets are on offer at sportsbikeshop.

    Shoei pinlock exactly the same, water between the visor and the pinlock. It’s a GT Air 1 and I have to say,overall the helmet has been a disappointment.

    Just to add to the review. My boots are Alpinestar Web Goretex. My second pair that I replaced after around 7-8 years. Not because they leaked but had worn smooth on the sole. Feet bone dry.
    Gloves, Richa Goretex faultless too.

    glad we are both pleased with Oxford suits.I don't usually buy "winter gloves" preferring lightweight ones -even if wet -with heated grips on its ok most of the year.I note the gloves comment-as a big handed person how do your gloves measure up- i see some xl at a bargain price but never can tell with gloves - size 12 recently sold by Lidl were way too small for me!
