The Knox thermal quilted jacket for women is designed as part of the Knox Studio Collection – and is one of the interchangeable layers to be worn under an outer jacket when on the bike.

Instead of all the elements of a riding jacket being integrated into one – as traditionally done in motorcycle clothing – the Studio Collection has ‘deconstructed’ the concept and has been designed as a range of separates that riders can pick and choose depending on what they need.

The thermal quilted jacket acts as a brilliant layer to keep you warm. It uses Thermolite Active insulation which works by hollow-core fibres trapping in air for insulation – but at the same time is lightweight and thin.

Usually when a piece has been designed to wear underneath another layer, there are tags and there’s been little thought put into the design – so even though you can wear it as a standalone layer, it doesn’t look like it should be. Not with this jacket, it looks like a stylish bomber jacket and looks just as good worn casually. I often put it under the wax jacket for an extra layer of warmth when I take my dog out for a walk…

It’s really comfortable and features a soft ribbed waistband and collar. The two pockets on the outside don’t have zips but come in handy for putting your hands in when the temperature drops.

It’s available in sizes 8-18 (XS-XXL) and is priced at £39.99.

The pricing of the individual elements mean that you could get an outer jacket, armoured shirt and quilted jacket liner for around £370. I tend to think about things as ‘cost-per-wear’ – with this set up, you have even more opportunities to wear the individual items together meaning it’s an efficient way to spend your cash.
