After being really, really impressed with my Knox armoured shirt which is so comfortable and versatile, I bit the bullet and purchased this https://www.planet-knox.com/product/womens-dual-pro-3-in-1-jacket-black/ after experimenting last weekend with layers over the armour in the cold and wet. It arrived today (after a quick exchange from Sportsbikeshop as the first size I ordered was far too big for me) and first impressions are really favourable. I haven’t yet tried it on the bike as it’s been weather more suited to the Ark but I am filled with hope!
What I will say for anyone considering purchasing is that the sizing is pretty generous for women’s bike kit which is usually on the smaller size. I am a fairly standard UK size 10 for jackets and ordered the medium at first as I tend to size up in bike jackets but it was absolutely massive so exchanged for the small which is still very roomy - plenty of room for even more layers if needed (I feel the cold ! ).
I’ll update once I have used it in anger .
