For generations of post-war motorcyclists the Belstaff Trialmaster jacket was the only thing that came between them and the wind and the rain. The legendary Sammy Miller was very rarely seen without a Trialmaster and Phil Read always wore his when racing in the wet. The secret of the Trialmaster is the fabric, a fine Egyptian cotton treated with natural oils that makes it waterproof, yet which left the cotton’s excellent breathability intact. In its new incarnation, the Trialmaster jacket is undoubtedly better than the original. It’s constructed from a heavy duty 10oz wax cotton. There’s a detachable quilted lining, whilst the jacket itself has built in padding on the body and sleeves.
