Halvarssons Luxor jacket in black/grey (HAL742)
The Halvarssons Luxor jacket is the top half of one of the Swedish brand's two laminated suits. The other suit is known as the Wolf/Wish combination. The difference between them is that the Luxor is more adventure-bike oriented. The Luxor features a 2-layer, laminated waterproof membrane. Being laminated, the Luxor will never 'wet out', and if the jacket does get wet, it will dry out quickly. Another benefit of a laminated motorcycle jacket like the Luxor is that it will vent better than a garment with a drop-liner membrane. And that's because, once the vent is open, air does not have to pass through a windproof membrane. And so the Luxor will be good to wear when it's hot. For warmth, the jacket has a removable, thermal, inner jacket that is made with both Outlast and Thinsulate. Sometimes protection, especially abrasion resistance, is not a chief consideration for makers of off-road clothing, but the Luxor is lined in the most vulnerable areas with Hi-Art, which increases the strength of the outer fabric by 500%. You also, of course, get adjustable, Level 2 armour in the elbows and shoulders. All the other stuff is pretty much as you would expect. You get loads of pockets, reflectors, a pocket for a back protector, and so on. But what makes the Luxor such a good fit on so many people are the side adjuster straps. They really work. We love the Halvarssons brand. High-end quality at mid-market prices means there's not a lot to dislike. Our overall take of the Luxor and its matching pant is that it's an adventure-style suit for people who spend most of their time on the road. It wouldn't be your best bet for crossing a desert, but it would be perfect for continental touring or even commuting.
