Segura Nomad jacket: 'Great fit for my 6ft 5in frame'

Time tested: Four months/850 miles

What’s good? At 6ft 5in I have a difficult time finding jackets that fit properly. Usually they’re too short in the body or made for someone who’s more rotund around the middle, or both. So I was pleased to discover the Nomad (size 2XL) was the ideal length, well fitted around my 36-inch waist and instantly comfortable.

The CE-approved shoulder and elbow body armour is well placed so I can’t feel it through the removable lining, the sleeves are a good length with knitted storm cuffs to stop drafts. With eight external and three internal pockets there’s plenty of scope to misplace your bike keys!

The leather-flapped, four-patch pockets on the outside are lined, and the whole jacket is very nicely made with the metal rivets, leather piping and logos on the press studs.

The outer has the appearance of waxed cotton but is a blend of cotton and polyester that’s
much more practical and durable than traditional cotton with its sticky wax coating. A breathable membrane takes care of waterproofing although so far it’s only had to fend off light showers.

What’s not? Without the removable liner it’s not quite as plush and personally I prefer a collar that’s more adjustable than the Nomad’s press studs. A metal rather than plastic main zip would be more in keeping with the overall style. I’ve also managed to snap one of the fabric loops that keep the liner sleeves anchored to the cuffs.
