They say ‘Gore-tex Proshell three­layer suit ac­tively breathes to re­duce mois­ture. Ar­ma­core re­in­force­ment, tem­per­a­ture reg­u­lat­ing lin­ing and D30 limb pro­tec­tors and full back pro­tec­tor. It has a de­tach­able ther­mal liner, di­rect air ven­ti­la­tion and re­mov­able storm col­lar. It’s ma­chine wash­able too.’ We say ‘Now ladies can spend a for­tune on su­per-high-spec kit too. My other half has been test­ing this and loves it. Af­ter 1000 miles of pil­lion rid­ing, she didn’t re­alise bike kit could be so good. The cut and fit are fan­tas­tic and she loves the jacket’s full-length side vents and dou­ble cuffs. It feels a bit stiff and heavy, but re­as­sur­ingly tough, per­fectly com­fort­able and so far does a great job of reg­u­lat­ing tem­per­a­ture. As you’d ex­pect, it doesn’t leak a drop ei­ther. She doesn’t like the high storm col­lar so it’s been junked. Bloody ex­pen­sive, but yes you do get a six year war­ranty. I’m not jeal­ous at all.’ Steve Her­bert
