Top Ten Budget Motorcycle Winter Jackets under £300


Experienced bikers will already know just how many top-drawer (and expensive) winter kits are out there. Some of it is truly phenomenal gear. But, spending around a grand on jackets isn’t on the cards for the majority of bikers.

Yes, always buy the best you can afford – a mantra to live by with everything but especially something that will protect you in the winter climate.

The great thing with any product is the trickle-down effect. You’ll find a number of the budget items in this article features specs that, a decade ago, would have been used by the best of the best.

We remember when Spada first came on the market and their budget philosophy was obvious when you gave their kit a close inspection. That was then, now it’s an entirely different story.

Spada have a slew of textile/winter jackets that are superb, with only one of those creeping over £200. We’ve gone for the Autobahn here, a penny short of £140.
