Product review: Garibaldi Moka Racer jacket

I've been using my Garibaldi Moka Racer jacket for four months and in that time it has covered 1500 miles. Garibaldi may not be the best-known brand in biking but they’ve been around since 1972 and this jacket has a classy retro feel.

I love the single white stripe down the front, paired with double stripes on the arms, and the leather has broken in nicely over the past 1500 miles. In fact, it looks far better now than it did when it first arrived.

The only styling touch I’m not so keen on is the round badge on the chest but it’s only held on with Velcro and easy to remove or replace. Construction seems sturdy and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to pockets, both in the jacket itself and in the zip-out thermal liner.

Another quality touch is the full-length zip around the bottom, which allows you to attach the jacket to trousers. There’s CE armour at the shoulders and elbows but no back protector. The price seems a little steep but it’s a nice jacket all the same.
