Tucano Urbano Guscio Rain Jacket, £128.90
Time used:
Three months

What’s good? It’s lightweight, waterproof and breathable, with mesh lining and lots of inner and outer pockets, including a handy one on the sleeve with a waterproof zip. But the best thing about it is that, like most Tucano Urbano kit, it’s stylish.

What’s not? I love it but can’t really work out what it’s got to do with motorcycling. It offers no crash protection and isn’t particularly suitable, or competitively priced, as a rain jacket to wear on top of other kit.

And it’s got a hood, albeit one that folds up. I suppose its target is urban scooter riders. I wear it to cycle to the pub.
