Don’t you just hate riding in real cold weather?
I’m sure you do, but lack of riding is even more painful, right?
You are a badass biker, and we both know badass bikers ride in any weather conditions. But that doesn’t mean we really enjoy that shit.
The fact that you can face the toughest weather conditions makes you a hero, but the human body has certain limitations and there’s no need to die when riding so we must rely on winter motorcycle clothing.
The more clothes you need, the less comfort you’ll have. It’s not such a big deal to understand, nothing better than being naked, but temperature also has a role here.
5 drawbacks when you are wearing winter motorcycle clothing
It is heavy
It is not flexible
It is expensive
It is not the one you’d choose
it is ugly
The photograph below is Old Skull Rider in quite unpleasant weather conditions. It was a really thick fog, it was cold as hell, and tyre grip was crap. Regarding clothing, there’s a hidden Protective Hoo+Die below the leather.

It was a funny ride, I was alone and I decided to get to the top of a mountain with great coast view. The only thing I could find was fog and not much to see… But after a while a bored photographer arrived and asked permission for taking some pics. We exchanged emails and the lonely ride was inmortalized . #motoboar . @officialtriumphig #Triumph #mountain #landscape #fog #biker #bike #photooftheday #mountain
When God created California, he surely had a look at the Mediterranean firstly
If you live in an area in which weather can dramatically change -especially if you’re riding long distances, you can surely benefit from this.
When the Hoo+Die was designed, cold or wet weather conditions were an issue. It is designed to protect you as much as a cordura jacket, but it is way more comfortable.
It’s still hot, as you wouldn’t change that even if you go naked… but what about winter!
The solution is way simpler and much better than you may think.
Combine your Protective Hoo+Die with your own leathers
Wear your Protective Hoo+Die with full body armour and Kevlar® linen for the ride, and your casual coat or your leather jacket on top and that would be it.
The Hoo+Dies were always about that, you wear them on top of your Tee, and you add some more coating on top if the weather requests so.
When that is done, the weather isolation achieved is surely better than your usual winter clothing.
You don’t see the Hoo+Die, but it is worn below the leather in real bad weather conditions
The above video was going to be shot in good weather conditions, but shit happens and the day of the shooting it was really cold and rainy all over the way, so the Old Skull Rider had to wear some leathers on top of the Hoo+Die in order to be warm and dry.
There was an epiphany in that very moment… don’t you know what an epiphany is? Well something that grabs you by the balls and completely change your thoughts about life or whatever.
Riding a Protective Hoo+Die in winter was a great discovery, I now know I can use it all the year round
