Bering Tijuana Gore-Tex jacket in black Product Information

In recent years, a laminate jacket has become very much ‘de rigeur’ for the serious motorcyclist. Whilst, technically, one could claim that laminated garments are more waterproof than those with drop-liner membranes, the main benefit of, say, a laminated jacket is that it will not absorb the rain. In cold conditions, this means the rider will stay warmer. If you’re a commuter, the benefit is that the jacket will dry out quickly once you have arrived at work.

Bering has produced a number of laminated jackets in the past; some with Gore-Tex, some with other membranes. But this jacket, the Bering Tijuana jacket, is the best yet. It’s a two-layer laminate, and it’s one of the most comfortable laminate jackets we have come across.

The Tijuana jacket comes with all the features you would expect of a premium-quality jacket. There’s CE armour in the elbows and shoulders. There’s a pocket for a back protector. You get vents on the chest, with an exhaust vent across the back. 

To adjust the fit, you get a Velcro waist belt and Velcro straps on the arms. Same deal at the sleeve ends. At the hem, there are gusset zips to help the jacket to splay a little on the bike. There’s also a clever system at the neck, that allows you to adjust the size of the aperture. The Bering Tijuana has more than enough pockets. Four main external ones; and enough on the inside make it difficult to find your phone. There’s a full-length, removable, thermal, liner that fixes into the jacket.

The real selling points on the Tijuana, in our view, are its comfort and its warranty. This is one of the most comfortable laminate jackets on the market. Only the Nivala, in our view, surpasses it. This is an extraordinarily nice jacket to ride in. It is not bulky, the armour is flexible, and it’s not heavy. In truth, it doesn’t even feel like a bike jacket. Its other outstanding feature is its five-year warranty. You don’t get that on many jackets at this kind of price point. You normally have to be in Rukka territory to get a warranty of this order.

So far so good. The question, therefore, is what are the downsides to this jacket? And the answer is the pant that it goes with. There’s not a matching trouser, per se. Bering recommend the Yukon pant; and indeed the Tijuana will of course zip into the Yukon, but the pant is not world class. It’s fine; it’s Gore-Tex laminated, has a five-year warranty and so on, but the pant is a bit shapeless and it comes in one length only. Frankly, if you want to be a player at this end of the market you need to be able to offer short and long legs as well as regular.

So where do we get to? Well, this is a lovely jacket, and if you’re looking for a laminate jacket to wear over jeans and and a pair of waterproofs, then the Bering Tijuana jacket is well worth a look. But we think the Yukon trousers are not up to the job. The Yukons work, but this jacket is lovely to wear, and the pants are not. Sorry Bering; you need to crack trousers. Right now we feel that Bering’s trousers are a bit of an afterthought, and with so much choice available in the market, that’s not good enough.
