“ Type: Jacket „
I bought this jacket in the colours shown in the photo here mainly because I wanted a jacket with elbow, shoulder and back protectors and that matched my charcoal helmet I'd bought in a sale previously. The jacket has a sporty feel and does zip up to form a two piece if you buy suitable trousers to go with it. It looked good when I got it but being a bit lazy I haven't looked after it quite as well as I ought to so has started to look a bit tatty and grubby. The white panels of leather seems to wear off slightly if you wear a ruck sack often. As a day to day biking jacket it's pretty good - it has two internal zip pockets than easily fit a phone and wallet etc and two lower pockets for flatter items (or they'll press against the tank). It has sufficient protection in the way of soft armour and robust stitching without making you feel like you're in a straight jacket. It is also pretty good all year round, as it has a removable thermal lining which is surprisingly good despite the fact that it folds down small enough to fit under the seat. All in all it is a recommended jacket provided you look clean it frequently and don't wear a ruck sack too often.
