Primary Material Leather
This garment is fitted with impact protectors for the elbows and shoulders. A pocket is provided for an aftermarket back protector. Replacing the elbow and shoulder armour with higher performing impact protectors would improve the protection levels of this garment.
There are zipped vents in the sides to allow controlled airflow movement through the garment. The breathability rating is based on tests of the garment's materials when all vents are closed. The breathability of this product may be better when the vents can be opened.
