    First item: a pair of new motorcycle gloves for me and my wife.
    Gloves: MODEKA PANAMERICANA
    Sympatex® membrane: 100% waterproof, windproof and breathable and dynamic climate control, visor wiper on the left index finger.
    I am already curious how they prove themselves. They have done very well in many test.
    The price was extremely reasonable! €80.90 (with discount) through an online store.

    Second item: a new biker pants for me, because I am not satisfied with my pants from BÜSE and it is a 3 in 1 system. You must therefore zip in a waterproof layer in case of rain, otherwise the pants are not really waterproof.
    Pants: MODEKA VIPER LT
    It is a 2 in 1 system where the outer material is already 100% waterproof and no further layer is required. The second layer is for low temperatures.
    List price at the manufacturer: €269.90. My purchase price at an online store was €230.- with delivery.

    Since the weather here in Austria has immediately transitioned from summer to autumn, I can test the weather resistance of my new equipment very quickly and extensively. I will then report to you about it!

    Yesterday I got my new motorcycle pants.
    First impressions:
    - high material quality
    - the warm layer for low temperatures is zipped in and provided in the pant legs with buttons
    - all pockets and zippers are waterproofed
    - on the thighs there are vents (front and back)
    - at the end of the legs of the pants is an elastic band hidden, with which you can make the pants even tighter in bad weather
    - the trousers have a high waistband that goes up to the kidney area
    - in the area of the calves and thighs the width of the pants can be adjusted (press studs with attached elastic band)
    - the width of the waistband can be adjusted with velcro fasteners on both sides of the waistband
    - additional adjustable/removable suspenders are attached by means of zippers and velcro fasteners

    Today I used the pants without the warm layer while driving to my office at about 11 degrees Celsius ( about 52 F).
    Result: very comfortable and without the extra layer I was not cold.
    On today's return trip I can then test the pants at about 25 degrees Celsius ( about 77 F).
    Let's see how they prove themselves then.

    The last few days I was able to extensively test the pants in the temperature range of 11 - 26 degrees Celsius.
    As already described, low temperatures are no problem. Below 10 degrees is then recommended the use of the additional warm layer.
    At temperatures above 23 degrees Celsius I have opened the side vents on the thighs.
    Result: very comfortable to wear
    I have the impression that despite the dark color (black) of the pants, the heating is not as strong as other pants I own.
    In summer temperatures above 30 degrees, however, I would recommend switching to another, thinner pants!

    After two weeks of waiting, I finally received the gloves I ordered.
    On the weekend I was able to test them in the temperature range of 9 - 27 degrees Celsius.
    Low temperature is no problem. At temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius they get realy warm. So I switched back to thinner gloves. I will basically wear them in spring and autumn and at wet weather conditions.
