Sub-£200 tex­tile jack­ets tested

£199.99

MCN - - CONTENTS -

Tested by Jor­dan Gib­bons, two months, 1000 miles The jacket works on a lay­er­ing sys­tem with a light­weight and well vented outer, backed up with a wa­ter­proof liner and a ther­mal liner. The fit and fin­ish of the jacket is spot on and the outer, with its sen­si­ble amount of pock­ets and nu­mer­ous vents, re­ally hits the mark. Un­for­tu­nately, the cuffs are not ad­justable, so as soon as it rains wa­ter goes up the sleeve, evades the liner and soaks you. Paired with the £169.99 trousers, wa­ter came in at the waist un­der the jacket too. If you want some­thing for ad­ven­ture rid­ing in the sum­mer months or in hot coun­tries, the Con­ti­nen­tal could be just the ticket but for win­ter rid­ing in the UK, I’d look else­where.
