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.
