Segura Retro Leather Jacket – a real softie
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.
