Belstaff H Sweater / Riding Jersey
Posted on 15/05/2012
Just back in stock in Classic Black or Military Green is Belstaff's fantastic H Sweater also known as the Belstaff Riding Jersey
Described by as a 'fleece', but this jacket is so much more!
Yes, on the inside it’s a fleece, but this is bonded to an outer shell that, to all intents and purposes, looks and feels like ‘worn’ leather. This shell is shower-proof, but not waterproof.
Of course, you still get armour in the elbows and shoulders but, in the Riding Jersey, Belstaff is using the super-lightweight “intelligent” 3DO armour that gives CE level protection on impact, but which is so light and flexible you hardly know it’s there.
The result is what we consider to be the perfect, ‘short-trip’ or ‘around town’ classic-style jacket.
You could literally wear it all day and it wouldn’t feel any more cumbersome than a heavy fleece or a zipped sweatshirt.
But you can ride down the road in it knowing that if you do come off, you’re wearing proper armour.
And although you wouldn't want to ride through a heavy rainstorm in it, it’ll be fine in a shower or a swift downpour.
We’ve never seen anything like it. If you’re looking for a lightish weight, quick-trip jacket that you can wear every day, this is it; it’s absolutely brilliant.
