Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Valen­tine’s Day is fast ap­proach­ing and I want to show my love by get­ting a tex­tile ar­moured jacket for my part­ner. What should I be con­sid­er­ing?

A An­swered by Ali­son Sil­cox, MCN Ded­i­cated ladies kit should be tai­lored for our fig­ures. If you are look­ing for a jacket with a longer cut make sure there’s some zips at the hips, as these can add a lit­tle ex­tra room for a lady with a fuller fig­ure. Dif­fer­ent brands suit dif­fer­ent bodyshapes. The Ital­ian man­u­fac­tur­ers, like Alpines­tars and Dainese, are some­times more pe­tite, with shorter sleeves and a tighter waist, whilst Rev’it and Hal­varssons of­fer kit with more wrig­gle room. Most jack­ets have match­ing pants, with a sim­i­lar cut.

You also need to be sure your lady is a fan of fem­i­nine colours, there’s a lot of pink and pas­tel colours on la­dys­pe­cific kit, some peo­ple love it, whilst oth­ers avoid!
