Tucano Urbano Libeccio AB jacket, £169.99
Miles covered/time: 2000/eight months
What’s good: They don’t come any more stylish and practical than this all year round use jacket. It’s a well cut piece of kit, with CE approved protection on the elbows and shoulders and a neat removable inner quilted liner makes it ideal for urban riding all year.
I particularly like the fact that I felt comfortable wearing it off the bike without it making a loud statement about it being a motorcycle jacket. It’s also impressively waterproof, with an outer shell that has well thought out reflective banding across the collar.
There are also six handy outer pockets and two inner pockets. It is also equipped to accept Tucano Urbano’s own airbag (available separately). All in all, it’s a fashionable, protective, well-made jacket.
What’s not: When it comes to protection I always try and ride with a back protector, and that’s perhaps the one thing this jacket it missing which it could do with.
