User Review: “This jacket is unbelievable, its heavy, very well made with good protection, at £97 its fantastic value for money and to be honest even at its full price of £225 there is no other motorbike jacket to match it. If your looking for a motorbike jacket don’t look any further.”
My thoughts: Although not a waxed jacket as the others are, this one seemed too good to not include. The styling details look spot on, and, as with a good wax jacket, this will only look better the older and more worn in it gets. There are some scooterists who wouldn’t want to wear leather… but I’m not one of them. I already own one “Aussie Gear” jacket, a high viz, armoured one, which I am very happy with, see my review of that here. I think these guys sell great products at value for money prices, don’t be put off because they seem “too cheap”, they sell quality gear.
Manufacturer description: The Frank Thomas FTW358 Pitman Wax Motorcycle Jacket features a retro classic styling, CE approved amour at the shoulders and elbows, soft foam back padding (upgradeable) fashionable buckle fastening at collar and waist, removable thermal body liner, chest, waist and hand warmer pockets, adjustability at cuffs and is available in 2 colours.
User review: “Just rode home through a friggin’ monsoon, wearing my new wax jacket. Arrived home totally dry – well, the top half of me. Best £160 I ever spent.”
My thoughts: Frank Thomas is a well known, well regarded name in motorcycling gear, with a reputation for quality. If anybody asked you “Is that a Belstaff” I would be more than happy to reply ” No mate, a Frank Thomas”. Although the website says there are two colour options, I could only find black. Which is probably the one you’d want. Or maybe not, when you read my final review. And the options only seemed to go up to “L” …I’m a “XXL” at least!
