Icon Radien Patrol Jacket, £279.99
Time tested: 800 miles/eight months
What’s good? This jacket is superb. From the soft lining around the collar and cuffs through to well-placed pockets and magnetic closures around storm-flap covers, not a single element of this jacket is out of place or ill thought out. After months of use, it continues to surprise me – while taking another look over it to write this review, I found a hidden visor cleaning cloth in one of the outside chest pockets and even a secret St Christopher medallion sewn into the lining to re-affirm its adventurer credentials. Magnificent.
What’s not? I don’t dish out five stars to products with anything negative about them and there is nothing disparaging that I can say about this wonderful item of motorcycle clothing. Others will tell you that it’s too loud and lairy and I look ridiculous in it, but I don’t care. I’ll be wearing this jacket for years!
