Tried & Tested: Polette jacket

TESTED BY Viv King|£144.99|

If you’re a female rider looking for a jacket that doesn’t compromise on safety or style, this is the perfect summer garment.



The reflective detailing on the wrists and neck folds away, giving you visibility on demand and a more civilian look when off the bike. There’s armour at the elbows and shoulders, and pocket for a back protector. I found TU’s sizing very good and the fitting adjustments on the sides and wrists enabled me to get a comfortable fit.

After several weeks of wearing this jacket, it has become a firm favourite for summer wear; breathability on hotter days was good, and on the wet days it kept me dry and comfy having a waterproof zip and being totally windproof. The zip-up pockets made sure I never lost anything and it has a good size innter pocket for your mobile phone. I found there was nothing I didn’t like about thie stylish jacket, all in all this is a high-quality jacket that is definitely worth the money.
