If you hit the trails rather than the moto track at the weekend, chances are you’ll be looking for gear that’s designed for the extra demands that riding all day brings. Gear masters, Fox, produce the Legion gear especially for the trail crowd, and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome.

The jersey is, well, a jersey as there’s not really that much more tech to put into a garment that’s essentially designed to be light and cool. The Legion Off-Road jersey ticks those boxes, with the comfortable fit combined with mesh at the sides making it the perfect choice for getting sweaty in the bush. But it’s the pants which are a bit special, with the over-the-boot style not only making them more comfortable to wear (there’s nothing to jam in your boot and rub all day!), but the design also makes for a more unrestricted movement. When you’re on and off the bike all day, cruising around and just generally chilling, the Legion EX pant with their multitude of zipped pockets make for the perfect companion.

 

Finally, the gloves are also tailored for the trails, with a reinforced palm and thumb helping keep blisters to a minimum, plus they’re waterproof and smartphone compatible making them ultra-versatile, just like the rest of the gear.

Even with a fair bit of punishment interspersed with time spent at the bottom of a kit bag, the extra development of the Legion gear to withstand the rigors of the trails makes them the perfect bit of kit for someone who tends to be a bit harsh with their gear. Plus, they also give you the right image, rather than looking like a moto wannabee.
