Alpinestars Stella Breeze Air-Flo Jacket, £159.99
Miles covered/time: 4000/three years
What's good: Checking the weekly weather report we were set for a scorching couple of weeks so I thought it time to dig out my ventilated Alpinestars jacket. The removable water resistant liner was lost in the black hole known as our garage a while since but with only wearing the jacket in the height of the summer it’s not a problem. The wind whistling through the perforations definitely helps to keep me fresh as a daisy on my daily commute. The jacket fits well – being properly tailored for ladies rather than just a cut down bloke’s version makes it really comfortable.
What's not: The jacket is a luxury. At £159.95 I really should be wearing it more than a month or so in the height of the summer.
