In early 2016, Fury­gan launched the ‘Leg­end’ range of light­weight sum­mer jack­ets and one of the styles avail­able was the Hero Evo. I re­viewed that jacket and was quite im­pressed with it – to the point of it be­com­ing my ev­ery­day ‘go to’ jacket. It ful­filled all my ex­pec­ta­tions for a sum­mer jacket; it fit­ted well, it didn’t feel overly heavy, and it was com­fort­able to wear. The Fury­gan Ser­pico is the lat­est in­car­na­tion of the ‘Leg­end’ range, and is CE ap­proved as PPE (per­sonal pro­tec­tive equip­ment). It looks just as stylish (in a vin­tage sort of way) as its pre­de­ces­sor did, with its quilt-ef­fect shoul­der pan­els and it also re­tains that nice soft and sup­ple feel that the orig­i­nal had.

The main ex­ter­nal com­po­nent is made out of what Fury­gan calls ‘high tenac­ity polyester’ of­fer­ing abra­sion re­sis­tance. D30 CE pro­tec­tors are fit­ted to the el­bow and shoul­der ar­eas, of­fer­ing pro­tec­tion with­out re­strict­ing com­fort or free­dom of move­ment. There’s a pocket for fit­ting the op­tional back pro­tec­tor – the pocket is com­pat­i­ble with D30’s ‘Cen­tral Back’ (CE level 1) and ‘Full Back’ (CE level 2) in­serts, which are avail­able sep­a­rately.

One no­tice­able ad­di­tion to the Ser­pico is a re­mov­able ther­mal padded lin­ing with alu­minium in­serts which has mesh pan­els around the armpit area to aid heat dis­si­pa­tion. This raises the level of use from be­ing a sum­mer weight rid­ing jacket, to some­thing that can be worn on colder days. The lin­ing is se­cured in po­si­tion by a sim­ple zip, so that it can be re­moved and washed, if needed.

The Ser­pico boasts other fea­tures too, in­clud­ing a cen­tral flap un­der the main zip which cre­ates a weather bar­rier. It has ad­justable straps on the wrist and waist and six pock­ets (four in­side/two out­side). There are also snap claws so the jacket can be linked to your trouser belt to stop it rid­ing up while rid­ing.
