I’m interested in a Q waterproof leather jacket
I’m after a new leather jacket and a colleague was telling me that there are now waterproof ones available. I didn’t think this was the case. Can you enlighten me? Candy Brown, Lightwater
A Answered by Keith Roissetter, Infinity Motorcycles There are a few jackets on the market which may tick the right boxes for you. But whilst these all have waterproof membranes, the outer shell will still get wet (and heavy) in a downpour, and their thermal properties won’t be so great in the winter. The Revitt Galactic has a removable membrane and quite sporty styling, like the Richa Libra jacket. Spada also do a simple one called the Turismo, whilst the Held Camaris is a leather/textile combination jacket and would be a great garment for touring with its mesh panelling and removable Goretex liner.
