Whilst at the Isle of Man TT Races in 2016 I called into the Roadskin pop-up store in Douglas and picked myself up a couple of bits of kit, namely a pair of their jeans and one of these hoodies. The hoody at the time was on special offer at £99 including the armour – a saving of £30.
I had fancied such an item for quite some time. Something lighter than the usual motorcycle jacket, something a bit more casual for when you are off the bike and something that still offered some protection. The problem was the hoodies that I had seen seemed to offer two out of my three requirements, the one that seemed to be always missed was the protection – probably the only one that actually matters!
