The Kiso 2 textile jacket certainly delivers quality at a sensible price. It’s comfortable and comes with many features, normally only found on much more expensive kit.
It has CE-approved elbow and shoulder armour, is waterproof and breathable and has a really effective, detachable Thermoline liner.
There are decent-sized pockets and the waist strap can be tightened to pull in that expanding waistline!
After 5000 miles, all of the zips are still working well and it hasn’t got any less waterproof, however, I have noticed it leaks a bit around the belly button area in heavy rain though.
Quality Three stars
Value Four stars
