Yup… You did read the entry title correctly, New Enough has the following jackets on closeout at just
The review on the New Enough website says
The Women’s Sevilla jacket offers the features you would find in an expensive touring jacket, but at an affordable price (while closeout supplies last).
This would be a good choice for use in a wide range of weather conditions from cold and wet to warm and dry. The jacket offers waterproof construction by way of a mid-liner. Use of a mid-liner keeps water out effectively but the shell material of the jacket gets wet.
Although the jacket has some large vents the mid-liner won’t allow free flow of air all the way through the jacket to your skin so I wouldn’t rely on this jacket for the hottest weather conditions. For cooler weather, a full sleeve insulated liner is included.
The liner is relatively thick and should work quite well. One neat feature that this jacket has that would be handy for touring is the liner pouch. When not in use the liner can be folded into a pouch that can be worn as a fanny pack (nice when storage space is an issue).
This jacket also offers quality protection. The shoulders and elbows are equipped with removable CE approved armor, and a removable CE approved backpad is also included. For comfort, the jacket has adjustable sleeves, wrist closures and an adjustable waist.
The jacket features are as follows
600D Cordura outer shell construction
Anatomical pre-curved ladies sports cut
2 front zippered air vents with rear exhaust vent
100% waterproof and windproof Hydroguard liner
Airmesh lined collar with neoprene edge and front
Knox® CE approved armor in elbows and shoulders
Knox® CE approved back armor
Teknic hidden triple storm flap over front zipper
2 front pockets and 2 internal pockets
All zippers are genuine YKK zippers
8 inch zipper connector
5 oz Polyfil insulated zip-out full sleeve liner
Reflective 3M™ anthracite piping for night time visibility

The Teknic Freestyle Jacket is on closeout at New Enough for the absolutely amazing price of
At almost 75% off MSRP, these jackets are an absolute bargain!
The shoulders and elbows of the jacket have built-in heavy-duty “GP” type armour. The armour is comprised of a hard outer shell with softer padding underneath. This type armour is commonly used in racing suits. The lower back and kidneys are protected by an external back protector.
Nearly any rider could make good use of a jacket like this, and at this price, consider these for gifts, passenger gear or back-up gear.
Good grief, the armour system alone is worth the price!

I was at one of my local bike shops, who also does training, this morning and was reliably informed that the FINAL date for taking the old motorcycle test has been put back now until FRIDAY 24th APRIL.
Apparently this is to allow for the implementation of the new test to come in more smoothly!
So if you are looking at trying to take your motorcycle test before the new one comes into effect it now looks like you have a few extra weeks in which to take the old style test.
Ring your local training school now if you want to be in with a chance of getting your test booked before Friday April 24th, they are getting booked solid.
