Held Verano Jacket £299.99
Miles covered/time: 3500/four months
What’s good? There are so many leather jackets on the market, most of which are quite short. I personally prefer a jacket that covers my lower back for long journeys.
This one comes with a detachable lining, ideal for the winter. The soft cowhide leather is very supple, so the moment you put it on it feel like you have been wearing it for years.
The jacket has a coating called the TFL Cool, which is designed to reflect the sun, and I honestly have noticed a considerable difference in hot weather. It has various air vent zippers for extra cooling, too.
The soft CE-approved protection in the shoulders and elbows is so comfy that it goes almost undetected.
What’s not? The waist belt has a rather long end and tends to slap around a bit at high speed
