Jacket review: Bering armour textile

Bering armour textile jacket, £119.99
Miles covered/time:
8000/three years

What’s good? The fit is spot on, nice and snug on the arms so there are no annoying draughts. The built-in shoulder and elbow armour stays in place, whether you’re in a sports bike crouch or upright, touring position.

Although this is only a lightweight jacket the thermal lining is adequate for even the coldest of rides – I’ve even been wearing it in temperatures as low as four degrees. Also its pretty waterproof, too.

There have been no leaks, and as this is England I have been caught out in a shower or two.

What’s not? Build quality isn’t the best, fraying on the cuffs makes me wonder how well it would stand up to a crash.

The lack of a built-in back protector means you’re already looking at splashing out as much as £100 on a separate one.

Rating: 3/5
