Weise Onyx Evo Textile Jacket
To help you stay warm, dry and safe throughout the year, no matter the weather, Weise’s Onyx Evo jacket is well worth a look. The four-season jacket is constructed from 600 Denier nylon and comes with a removable quilted thermal liner and a removable breathable, waterproof and windproof liner too.
For protection it comes with removable KNOX Microlock CE approved shoulder, elbow and back armour. It’s an extremely well equipped jacket, with a removable face mask for added comfort during colder weather, chest and rear vents, and a variety of internal and external pockets, including two which work to warm your hands.
It also offers a range of adjustments to help you get the perfect fit, but comes with stretch panels on the elbows for optimum flexibility.

Gerbing Heated Jacket Liner
Riding through winter? Struggling to stay warm? Then Gerbing’s new Heated Jacket Liner could be exactly what you’re looking for. It’s essentially an updated version of its flagship jacket liner.
Improving on the most popular features of the outgoing liner, it now comes with a patented MicroWirePRO heating element throughout the whole jacket, including the front, rear collar and sleeves to offer a more even distribution of heat.
It’s constructed from a soft, wind-resistant nylon shell, which has been designed to offer a more tailored fit in spite of the additional heating elements.

RST Pro Series Raid Textile Jacket
Sitting under RST’s flagship Adventure III textile suit in its extensive range, the Pro Series Raid textiles are perfect for adventure bike riders who rely on their gear to protect them out on the road (and occasionally off-road, too).
Essentially, they’re a pared back version of the brand’s military inspired X-Raid gear, and we reckon they look the business; simple, stripped back and stylish.
The Raid jacket is made from VX-R material to provide strong abrasion resistance, and for protection against impact, are equipped with CE level 1 back, shoulder and elbow armour as standard.
The Raid gear features a fixed waterproof drop lining, a removable thermal lining, and plenty of vents and pockets, as well as a map pouch. The jacket also has adjustable buckles on the waist and arm.

For protection against impact, the jacket comes with CE level 2 back, shoulder and elbow armour included as standard. The X-Raid features a fixed waterproof drop lining, a removable thermal lining, and plenty of vents and pockets, as well as a map pouch.
