Rukka Vauhti jacket, £299.99 (leftover stock discounted from £649.99)
Time tested: 9000 miles/two years
What’s good? It’s warm, comfortable, waterproof, highly visible and looks distinctive. It’s also now exceptionally cheap for a product from a top-line company like Rukka. Those last two are almost certainly connected, as the stand-out looks didn’t find favour with many UK riders, explaining why the UK importers ditched the Vauhti after one year in the range. If you like the distinctive looks, don’t expect it to stay white for long (see below) and can find one in your size, the jacket (with five-year warranty) is a bargain.
What’s not? It won’t stay white for long, as there’s a limited number of sizes available as stocks diminish.
