What gear are they doing ? I'll bet none of it is my size anyway. eg. My jacket is 6XL. I've just bought a new helmet, size 62/63 or XXL. Boots, size 12W. I've got used to nothing from a shop fitting....ever. Thank goodness for ebay.

Might well be until you go down the road. The Jeans are only semi lined.

It's really hard to judge until you actually see and feel the stuff - I've never had any Aldi gear so I don't know.  

Anyway, I'm sure that wearing the Aldi stuff is a lot better than jeggings and t-shirt and/or tracksuits with no gloves - both of which I see (at least in the summer) around here.

Aldi - huge european chain, really doubt it'll be totally rubbish. I've a Lidl open face (with visor) for my scooter and its fine for low speed/town riding - fits, vents work...Do have an arai which gets worn most of the time though.

As to will brandwhatever kit work in a crash? Who knows, ce markings on armour and lids are good. Low speed, armour saves you the bumps, higher speed, you'll need abrasion resistance.
