    I have one of their leather jackets, nice heavy grade leather and good construction. Must have a look on the 19th since they only have small numbers of each size.

    Got 2 pairs of the socks on a special buy day a few years ago. Very comfortable and have lasted well.

    I've the Aldi waterproof textile jacket and pants. They proved their worth on the Round-the-Block ride last year when we encountered some inclement weather across the Nullabor and in SW WA. Not sure that Aldi have these this coming sale. Given you can pay upwards of $500 for similar these were great value for around $220 for both jacket and pants!! Highly recommended.

    The socks are great warm in winter and cool in summer.

    I bought something (gloves?) once from Aldi and I noticed the sizes were fucking nuts - XL for a 12 year old Chinese girl's hands maybe.  Try shit on is my advice.

     Some "Aldi shit" seems ok, have purchased a few things there. Recent was last Saturday, purchased a Blood Pressure Monitor. After using to check blood pressure, some chick comes on recorded message thing, and says "warning warning ' seek medical advice asap.... hmmm trying to tell me something, which i don't care as having fun with the buttons....

    What I'm getting at is "Ya pay for what you get." And Bonkerz is right.

     But what isn't these days, I don't buy clothes on line because size is inconsistent. The only thing I buy without trying on first is undies, can't imagine grabbing the test pair to try 

    I tried my jacket I got there and it fits great, checked over stitching and seams and could not find any loose threads. Had over a year and still good unlike my dri rider jacket, cost hundreds and split apart the back seam during the second season so just check things property before you buy.

    I have a full face helmut from Aldi and it's a bloody rippa.
    Comes with spare visor and cheek pads.

    Though it's only something that I wear in the rain.

    I got a pair of their jeans and on your recommendation lofty I got three pairs of socks. They seem.pretty good. I'm sticking to my Kathmandu thermals which are more exxy but awesome.

    Picked up two pair of socks annd  a balaclava with a thick neck cover that goes deep into the jacket, the jackets look almost the same as the one I have and just as heavy. I looked at the thermal tops and will think about them though on cold days I am normally dressed for the day plus bike jacket I really only need heated gloves as I feel the cold in my hands more than anywhere else.

    Got there early enough and grabbed some socks. Had them before so I know they're good.

    First thing I notice is every fat fuck with the flu is in the store, plus 99% of the cities elderly population - all going through the motorcycle gear.  Wanted thermals, but they were all taken apart so I didn't fancy trying them on.

    Also wanted a spare full face helmet too,  in case of passenger.  One guy trying them on had the added bonus of the worst face eczema (?) and snot nose I've ever seen.  He sneeze tested the visor, then calmly put it back in the box and grabbed another one.  So I grabbed a box from the back/bottom and made sure it was sealed.

     I figured XL (I'm a L most times) but after realising is probably wouldn't fit over my left nut, let alone my head, I put it back.  Lucky I took my own advice and checked the sizing.

    Went to Marion Shopping Centre this morning.
    No bluetooth headsets and all the XL jackets should be re- labeled  as M.
    Ended up with a couple of pairs of socks.
