Call us vain, but even when riding we women like to look good and this Iris jacket designed specifically as a women’s motorcycle garment from Ixon fits the bill both in terms of fashion and safety. Ixon jackets describes this model as a “roadster retro” look that can be worn in all seasons thanks to its waterproof inserts and its removable winter lining.
The waterproof inserts are made from Drymesh breathable fabric, while the overall Spytech material is soft and flexible enough for good movement. Extra padding and protection is included around the shoulders and elbows and there is some back protection which can be removed and replaced with a full back body armour sheath. The sleeves are slightly formed already, and the zippers are covered with flaps while the wrist closure is a press stud button.
The Ixon Iris women’s motorcycle jacket also has plenty of cubby holes for all our gear, including five pockets. The retro look comes from patches on the front and the sleeve stripes come in black and red or black and white. The winter lining is a quilted look in purple or red. The jacket comes in either black or white and costs about €139.
