Bull-It Ladies Covec SR6 Roadster hoodie review (£169.99)

What’s good about the Bull-It Roadster hoodie?

This is the first urban-styled, textile riding kit I’ve worn that actually feels protective. The exterior is made from 12oz denim coated with a water-repellent finish, and features a detachable grey cotton hoodie making it look like a fashion item. Yet on the inside there’s a Covec abrasion-resistant material covering 60% of the entire jacket and concentrated in key impact zones, there’s CE-approved soft armour in the elbows and shoulders, a CE-approved back pad, triple-stitched main seams, and belt loops to allow connection to jeans. It fits really well so I’m confident it wouldn’t ride-up my back or the armour move out of place in the event of an accident. It’s comfortable, confidence-inspiring and looks distinctive. Available in sizes XS to XXL.

And what’s not?

The pop studs that fix the detachable hood to the collar always detach when I pick the jacket up, and they’re tricky to pop back into place. Also, the hood has a cord through it with two metal toggles at each end that flail about in the windblast and tap against my lid. A small annoyance, but an annoyance all the same.
