Like the Sombrio Jacket, the Trooper will appeal to hardcore riders. The tough abrasion-resistant panels will protect the jacket in ‘offs’, and the three-layer rip-stop construction is highly durable in itself.
With zippered vents front and rear, through-flow is excellent, although it can leave damp patches despite the clever hiding of the opening behind reflective flaps.
Fully seam-sealed, the Trooper copes admirably with the worst weather, and thankfully the airflow prevents excessive moisture build-up. One for the hard-riding fraternity, as the weight and bulk will put off mile-munchers.
