Safety

The Sports jacket is CE certified Class AA with CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows. Outer protectors on the shoulders give added impact resistance. Adjustability provides a great fit. The adjustability means the armour stays in the correct place for maximum protection upon impact. Reflex reflective detailing gives added night visibility.

Styling

As you can surmise from the title, the Frank Thomas Sports jacket offers sports styling with a shorter length. In total there are seven colourways available, meaning there is an option for everyone. The Reflex reflective detailing is incorporated into the design of the jacket for a sleeker, more fashionable look.

Comfort

Elasticated accordion detailing in key areas provides superior comfort in the riding position. The elasticated base gives a great fit but also impedes wind/weather ingress. Adjustability throughout makes the fit superior with a mesh liner keeping you fresh. A waterproof membrane keeps you dry at all times plus the cuffs and neck feature comfort fabric for optimum comfort next to your skin.

Practicality

The extensive adjustability throughout the Sports jacket means its practical for both use on the bike and off the bike. The most practical aspect of this jacket is the fact that it is waterproof. The rear of the jacket is elongated to protect from wind regression in the riding position. The use of ultra-durable YKK zips throughout give added security. Connection zip to matching trousers means greater practicality because you can zip the items together to prevent any unwelcome draughts.

Negatives

Many sports bike riders prefer leather (for riding bikes!!). Textile jackets aren't automatically synonymous with sports riding. However, you cannot get a leather jacket with so many great features for £99.99.

Verdict

The Frank Thomas Sports jacket is a great sport touring jacket. Because it is fully waterproof and highly protective, you can use this in all weathers. It is CE AA certified for superior protection. The sheer variety of colours means there is a colour for everyone and for every colour scheme.
