A snug and warm multi-purpose jacket that would be equally suited for in town riding or skiing down the slopes. Incredibly flattering cut with metal buckle detail on the wrists and back – pinching in creating a waist over the layers of fleece, water resistant fabric and removable winter lining. Huge, groovy collar looks great.Tue, 01 Jan 2008 00:00:00 -0800
My fashion credentials aren’t the best, but even I know a jacket that looks like a ski coat circa 1985 isn’t going to cut it on the motorways and roads of Britain. I’m tempted to send it to Trinny and Susannah for proper evaluation. Its saving grace is that it does work as a warm, comfortable, wet weather riding jacket.Tue, 01 Jan 2008 00:00:00 -0800
Does my bum look big in this? Yes. The matching trousers to complete the Frank Thomas set.Tue, 01 Jan 2008 00:00:00 -0800
Forcefield body armour has been supplying BKS and the like for years and are now supplying us, the buying public, with their wares. Yes there will be a compromise on weight and slight bulk, but I think the safety payoff justifies it – the lattice work armour combined with memory materials mould to your body shape and reportedly continue to work with repeated impacts. Pros: Safety, obviously.Cons: Additional weight.Tue, 01 Jan 2008 00:00:00 -0800
Definitely not an Arai or Shoei, but then neither is the price and for the budget concious the Urban fit the bill. It fits very snuggly with no lateral movement or gaping spaces. For standard sizing they come up ever-so slightly smaller than normal.
