Styling

Casually styled – this doubles as a shirt you can wear off the bike! Available in a choice of four colours, the Kickback shirt features your classic shirt styling with two breast pockets, classic collar and cuffs as well as a button-down closure. You would barely know that this was a protective motorcycle garment – the Aramid in the lining would be your only clue! The longer styling gives you a choice of ways to wear this – tucked in, out – all prevent wind ingress. A checked design isn’t something you usually see on motorcycle clothing!

Comfort

The Oxford Kickback looks comfortable because it is! Made from soft, stretchy material, the Aramid lining is also comfortable. Soft edge cuffs and collar mean the areas next to your skin are comfortable for riding and this also features a water-resistant coating to make this showerproof. The stretchy material construction provides added movement on the bike for a truly comfortable, and non-restrictive ride.

Practicality

Negatives

If you’re looking for a highly protective jacket that you can wear in all weathers – this is not for you. This is not waterproof. It is showerproof but, do not expect it to keep you dry in savage downpours! Also, it can be a bit cold in colder weather – this is ideal for warmer weather wear. The lack of armour can also be a negative point to some – but it does make the transition from the bike to the street a lot easier.

Until next time, stay safe,
