Help! Planning a trip to Spain and the wife needs new riding gear. She only joins me on the bike when the temperature rises to heatwave levels. Her preferred outfit would be t-shirt and shorts. She is prepared to compromise on some lightweight but protective clothing providing that it doesn't make her look like a michelin man (she's size 10/12) is not brightly coloured and makers labels are unobtrusive. Could be leather or textile. Hard knee armour has to be removeable 'cos it hurts her knees;)
Any lady riders have the perfect solution:confused:

Last time i did Spain i picked the wrong time completely last 2 weeks in August it was in the high 40 c temps Cordura kit with liners removed, armour removed was still way too hot was constantly fighting dehydration all the way down

went to Spain last year in 40 degrees and I wore Heine Gerrecke Cool air ladies jacket and trousers. They were brilliant, whilst MoM and jay were dehydrating I stayed comfortable. I'm a size 12 and it fitted well and I removed the knee armour because it hurt my knee. Sounds like it ticks the boxes, cost £100 fir the jacket and £ 80 for the trousers

I'm on to Heine Gericke to see if they have one in TGLW's size.

I see she removed the knee pads like Sharrie did:D
