Product Review: Held Uncover suit
Held Uncover suit, jacket £279.99, trousers £229.99
Time tested: Nine months/ 19,000 miles
What’s good? This is a winter suit through and through, which locks in the heat and the thermal liners do a great job. The outer shell is made of tough stuff, surviving more than a few scrapes with ease and holds off the rain for longer than most suits I’ve tried. It features a removable storm collar, waterproof outer pockets and large reflective panels which can be hidden by zipping them up. The suit is a solid buy and is the ideal companion to see you through the cold months.
What’s not? Watch out for sizing when purchasing Held gear. I went two sizes up to get a suit that fits. And on each suit the forearms are strangely very tight. If you feel the slightest squeeze, go up another size, otherwise adding another layer underneath will leave you feeling the effects of arm pump in no time. There’s no point buying this if you think you can just whip out the liner and ride with it in summer, you’ll be sweating buckets in no time.
