Ten top tex­tile jack­ets

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Held Imola 2 £479.99

The prici­est jacket here thank­fully has the spec to please those who have enough in the bank to splash out. The 500-de­nier Cor­dura outer is backed with a gen­uine Gore-tex wa­ter­proof and breath­able mem­brane, which re­mains a cut above generic mem­branes. It has four vents to al­low air flow, a re­mov­able ther­mal liner and a 3D lin­ing to help air cir­cu­late next to the rider’s body. Mag­netic col­lar clo­sures fin­ish off the classy feel.

Sizes 38in-50in Colours Black/yel­low, black/blue/white, black/red/white, black/ white Ar­mour Shoul­der, el­bow. Op­tional back pro­tec­tor Pock­ets Two ex­ter­nal, seven in­ter­nal Con­nect­ing zip Long

Con­nect­ing zip At­tach­ing jacket to trousers means re­duced draughts and bet­ter pro­tec­tion in a spill. Re­flec­tive strips When car head­light beams strike this stuff, it shines brightly. Very handy to have – es­pe­cially in bad rid­ing con­di­tions. Vents Tex­tile gear can get sticky in sum­mer. Air vents let in cool­ing air and make a jacket more suited to year-round use. Not all jack­ets come with them. Pock­ets Never trust an ex­ter­nal pocket to keep im­por­tant gear dry in bad weather. An in­ter­nal pocket is the best place for stuff such as phones and wal­lets.
