Oxford Heritage Tech 1.0 jacket

-

Oxford’s overview

A durable waterproof jacket for the modern-day classic rider. Traditiona­lly styled with four outer pockets and belted waist adjustment, which is removable.

Stu’s take

The Heritage jacket is constructe­d with dry wax cotton using durable nylon overlays to ensure protection. The back of the jacket features a dynamic ‘back action’ system which allows the product to flex when riding. The advanced d textiles minimise wind-chill, provide excellent insulation anda the Dry2Dry membrane is waterproof, windproo of and highly breathable. WhenW securely fastened, th he quilted waist belt ho lds the jacket comfortab bly in place with no risk of flapping and the neck belt is removable to make it optional. The large cuff openings have plenty of adjustment and the large YKK zipper finishes before the bottom of the jacket, so it does not ride up.

All these features add to the fit of the jacket and inside there’s a side-entry zippered poacher’s pocket. The four outer pockets are spacious and functional, and if you’re wearing the jacket off the scooter the lower outer pockets have comfortabl­e hand-warmer pockets within them. There are CE Level 1 Type B protectors fitted to shoulders and elbows, and there is provision for a back protector; the whole jacket is CE approved to level A.

Conclusion

The Heritage jacket is both stylish and practical, and the use of a breathable waterproof liner system and removable thermal liner makes this jacket a great all-year-round option, which is well worth considerin­g.

RRP: £199.99 (available in navy or olive)
