Product review: Richa Monza leather jacket
I've been using my Richa Monza jacket for three months and it has covered 1100 miles in that time. Richa always impress me with their combination of honest quality and affordability, blended with pleasingly technical and understated styling. Having covered 20,000 miles in their textile kit, I’ve now taken the plunge with this Monza jacket.
The sense of quality is palpable, with thick but soft and malleable cow leather, CE armour at the elbows and shoulders, and a compartment for a back protector should you want to fit one to the jacket. It also boasts a couple of large pockets and a zipped breast pocket on the inside, to compliment the two external zipped pockets.

There is venting and breathable stretch panels, and the full internal lining also has mesh panels to improve airflow – but it is a relatively warm jacket when the ambient temperature creeps over 20-degrees.
The comfort is superb though, with soft rounded cuffs and rolled collar. The cuffs are quite tight over bulky sports gloves, and a bit too thick for going inside gloves though – so try before you buy. There’s YKK zips throughout, and a three-quarter zip to attach it to jeans, too. Stylish, comfy, and built to last.
