Went to Llandegler in Wales for the first time the other day with nothing but my helmet and thin cheap gloves.

I spent the whole day on my brakes and worrying about coming off which ruined it a bit for me.

I'm after some safety gear, knees, shins, elbows, arms (if possible), and a decent pair of gloves.

There is loads to choose from online on eBay and biking websites, but what is the best?

I don't want to spend a load of money and it be uncomfortable bulky crap.

I've got about £150 to spend on the items listed above.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Seal skinz gloves for wet weather and their socks. Nukeproof critical knee pads are good and comfy. Get a ruck sack and carry first aid kit and tools etc and go and enjoy.
