MC Tested: Pilot Elipsol Air Jacket

A do-it-all jacket that leaves budget left over for actually doing stuff.

Pilot Motosport expands its product line into the street market with the new three-season Elipsol Air jacket.
Reaching for my map to figure out where the heck we are during a recent dual-sport ride up the California coast. The Elipsol is a great fit for adventure riders, but the styling and functionality make it a good match for a variety of bikes and riding styles. Pilot went all-in on the details. Adjustment straps on the arms and waist allow you to tailor the fit to accommodate layers, and man am I a fan of that rolled-neoprene collar. A Velcro strip inside the main zipper is ready to accept either of Pilot’s two accessory chest protectors for added protection. The removable rain liner may be a bit inconvenient, but the Elipsol has a cargo pocket that’s perfectly sized for the insert. I ditched the quilted Thermo-Lite liner entirely as I prefer to use my own wool base layers.

True to Form: proper riding jackets to match your bike.

Riding jackets paired with the form and function of your motorcycle.
Technical, functional, and ready for whatever you encounter. English craftsmanship, American style. The upper half of race leathers. Stealth mode. Typical Vanson quality mated with a design by people who live in Brooklyn (so you know it’s hip). Proof that they do, in fact, make ’em like they used to.

MC Tested: Scorpion Yukon Jacket and Pants

Impressive quality features for the price

After 26,000 miles, the Scorpion Yukon Jacket and Pants stand tall as all-around go-to gear.
A 26,000-mile test of the Scorpion Yukon riding suit certainly gives enough experience to really sort things out! The suit proved to be very waterproof in most cases, except for one curious exception. There are a lot of venting options, including vents that stretch along both the biceps and forearms, across the back and shoulders, and along the sides of the torso. Internal pockets offer a convenient place to hide your passport or any other small items. A large pocket along the lower back offers enough room to store bigger items with super-convenient access.
