Jacket review: Spidi JK Tex

Spidi JK Tex jacket, £169.99
Miles covered/time:
1000 miles/three months

What's good? This jacket is brilliant. It’s a very lightweight textile jacket meaning it’s perfect for riding in seriously hot weather (or all year round if you’re from up North like me).

The vents work exceptionally well and due to the lightweight of the jacket it feels as if I’m wearing a thin jumper.

The protection is Spidi’s soft armour making it extremely comfortable.

What's not? The light weight may be good, but due to how thin it is I’m not overly confident it will do much in a crash.

No back protector is included, although there is a pocket for one. I tried to put a back protector in the jacket but the pocket is too big and it just slid out of position.

Rating: 3/5
