CLEO 2.0 JACKET

This is one great looking Joe Rocket Textile Jacket for us girls in the summer..

It is available from TopGear Superstore, here in the UK, and is currently on offer at £121.49, reduced from £134.99, with free delivery.  Click on the images to be taken to the pages on their website.

I particularly like the black one, with the purple running a very close second, although the purple would be out of the question with my current bike as the colour would clash!! 🙂

I particularly like the design on the sleeve, adding that touch of individuality.

    Ladies Teknic Sevilla Motorcycle Jacket Just $64.99 At New Enough!

    February 27, 2009

    Yup… You did read the entry title correctly, New Enough has the following jackets on closeout at just

    $64.99!

    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

  • Teknic Freestyle Textile Jacket – Just $59.99 From New Enough

    February 27, 2009

    The Teknic Freestyle Jacket is on closeout at New Enough for the absolutely amazing price of

    $59.99!!!

    image

    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.

    image

    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!
