Se­gura Retro Leather Jacket – a real softie

Old Bike Australasia - - GOOD GEAR -

In is­sue 54 we pre­viewed the re­vival of one of the iconic names in mo­tor­cy­cling cloth­ing, Se­gura. Re­cently, the op­por­tu­nity to ac­tu­ally test one of the prod­ucts has come our way, and mighty im­pres­sive it is too. Our jacket is the Retro Leather, and it’s made from just about the most sup­ple leather imag­in­able. OK, they’re no longer made in France, but th­ese days, that mat­ters not a whit – ev­ery as­pect of the gar­ment oozes qual­ity. I love the un­der­stated ap­pear­ance – re­minds me of the famed Bates gear from the US that was all the rage in the ‘six­ties. The Retro comes in a choice of six colours, each with con­trast­ing arm stipes and a stripe across the back; black/white, black/yel­low, blue/white, brown/beige, red/white, and the one I have, Camel. With­out los­ing its neat shape (you could wear this any­where, not just on the bike), the Retro Jacket has pro­tec­tive EC armour in the shoul­ders and el­bows, a fixed mesh lin­ing with re­mov­able thermo lin­ing, and in­side and out­side pock­ets. Sizes range from small to 2X-Large, and at $649 RRP this is ex­cep­tional value.
