RRP: £259.00 // Sizes: XS-XL
The Crave Bear Kevlar shirt is a clever bit of kit that looks good both on and off the motorcycle – and comes with a full Kevlar lining which should help keep your skin intact should the worst happen and you take a tumble. With the scorching weather we’ve been having – it’s been my go to jacket since I got my hands on it a few months ago.
It’s a simple but well equipped jacket, and comes with a full para aramid anti-abrasion layer (Kevlar) and microfibre lining layer for breathability – like I said, perfect for the summer. Additionally, there are pockets for CE protection on the shoulders and back, and room for D30 protectors on the elbows. Admittedly, I’ve been wearing the jacket with an armoured base layer underneath – but if you’re going to do that, you might need to go one size up to ensure there’s room. There’s also a phone/wallet pocket on sleeve, one zipped inner pockets and two small breast pockets.
In short, this handmade jacket from Crave is a fantastic piece of kit. It’s not cheap, I know – but it’s stylish, lightweight, comfortable, and doesn’t look out of place on or off the bike. I love it.
