Ian Mc: Product Review

Had the Jacket since Xmas. Used it in one long run up north of Scotland continuing heavy rain and snow for approx 600 miles and the Jacket was great. Comfortable warm,reassuring and completely dry at the end. Glad I bought it and great service from Moto Legends

Mike Dignum: Product Review

Jacket just arrived and was very happy with the qualty and build of it. One star taken away as the arm lenght is a little longer than i like and the zip for the back protector pouch was broken (very small & flimsy considering the other zips on the jacket) But can be fixed.I liked the Hi-Viz zip on attachment.

Jim Pike: Product Review

Great jacket picked mine up yesterday, great fit, great detail, will buy the bottoms next month, very warm which is well needed at the moment. Off to devon tommorrow morning about 390 miles that should give it areal test, will update review when i return next week. Remember you gets what you pay for?

Steve : Product Review

I've only had around an hour on the bike with this jacket but first impressions are very good. It was about 3 to 5 deg C and with an ordinary thin sub fleece under I stayed warm throughout. It's also really well tailored and comfortable to wear. The look it subjective I guess, but I think it looks better on than in the pictures. The high vis attachment is a neat touch and I think it's a good quality jacket for the money.

Martin Selway: Product Review

I have used this jacket for my 100 mile commute daily for the last 6 months. Excellent jacket, waterproof and comfortable. The neck extension is too short to secure properly so flaps around in the breeze, best removed and forgotten. The main zip pull broke after 6 months use, I called MotoLegends, they collected the jacket, repaired with a new zip and returned in 2 days, brilliant service. Good jacket, great service, highly recommended.

martin P: Halvarssons Prime

So far, so good. Very comfortable, and the outlast lining seems to do its thing. Keeps your core temp just right. Just need a monsoon to test the waterproofing now !!1

Gordon Thompson: prime jacket

my wife was sure that i'd measured my chest the wrong size(too small) and when the jacket arrived I did hum and hah whether it was too small but with the Halvarssons merino wool top on it was spot on when on the bike,very comfortable and warm,lots of adjustments as well,excellent

Barry Marling: Prime jacket

Great jacket been using for about 2 months now,very comfortable and really well made. Got caught out in heavy rain last week on a 132 mile round trip to my dads,no problems had my phone in front pocket bone dry same as my wallet. Have warm on a warmer day material doesn't make you sweaty. Welll worth the money and with the ability to spread the payments a must buy.

Gerald Drummond: Great for all weathers

What a great jacket. In four hours of riding in torrential rain, the only water in the jacket was drips from my helmet and when my gloves gave in, around the cuffs. It kept me warm and dry throughout. A day later in brilliant sunshine, the outlast lining kept me very comfortable. If you ride in the UK, this is the jacket for you.

Mark Smyth: Mr

Got the jacket for a trip to Italy, the jack did not get wet before leaving, so I was a little apprehensive as it had not been truely tested. On the ride down we experienced some light wet weather with no problems. On the way back we had some very wet/torrential rain, but I stayed leak free. I was surprised the jacket stood up to a couple of very wet hours. A great buy.

Cameron Fisher: Mr

Easily the most comfortable bike jacket I've ever worn. Very flexible and soft. As a fair weather biker I can't comment much on the waterproof properties, however with the lining and only a regular fleece on underneath I can comfortably ride down to near 0 degree (my hands get cold long before my body). The removeable fleece neck warmer is great and means I don't need to wear a balaclava. In the summer, with the vents open, and the zip lowered by about a third, I have been comfortable in up to about 26 degrees provided I don't keep still in the sun for too long. Overall it is also a very well fitting jacket, there are elasticated straps which means it can be adjusted to give a fitted look.

Mark Endean: Very pleased so far

I've enjoyed my jacket so far but the warmest and driest summer in more than a decade is perhaps not the best time to be reviewing all-weather clothing. I've 'stress-tested' it in the heat and, yes, it's hot. But I'm going to have to wait until things change before getting a proper idea of how warm and comfy it can be in bad weather. One thing that delighted me was that every time I wore it for the first few times I found another pocket. There are loads of them in odd places.

Jason Burg: Mr

This really is a lovely jacket. Fits beautifully, very comfortable. Plenty warm enough. Not exactly Jimmy Dean looks, but hey, if I wanted to look cool I would buy a totally impracticable leather number...oh. That is an idea. In the mean time this jacket keeps my middle-aged sag in place...
