Rida-Tec Elite Antique Brown Leather Jacket
Paul LJ - Hampshire (28 April 2018)
At last I have found a 3 seasons cruiser jacket. I have had a BP Warrior jacket for over ten years and that has been brilliant in all weathers, but I wanted something for the spring, summer and autumn months that was not quite as hot and heavy as the warrior. I have tried textile jackets but really wanted leather. Spotted the new antique brown leather Rida-Tec elite jacket on line and started drooling, could this be what I was looking for, a quick pocket dance and a raid of the piggy bank and one order was on its way. 36 hrs later, well I did order on a Sunday, and the Jacket was here. What a cracking looking piece of leather work but deep joy turned to slight sadness, in trying to order a jacket that would not be too big with the removable liner out I had chosen a 42 inch chest instead of my usual 40 inch, but it was still to tight, my late middle aged spread wasn't helping the zip to meet either, and was a tad tight around the upper arm.
However with the excellent customer service that I have always received from everyone at BP, one phone call later and a replacement size 44 inch jacket was on its way to me and that arrived less than 24 hrs after my phone call!!
It fitted a treat, so with a bike night on locally, it was out for a ride. It had been a damp cold day with a light breeze, air temp was about 8 degrees, with just a heavy t shirt under the jacket I was more than warm enough for a local ride about 15 miles to the meeting. The jacket sat very comfortably and it still isn't broken in, so that has to be a good sign. The ride back about 7 pm was a little cooler and I could have done with a wind blocker top as well as the t shirt, this was mainly for a slight chill coming through the chest vent zips, I now know so will be prepared.
I am delighted with this jacket, it fits well, looks the dogs on the black and bronze cruiser that I ride, and if my warrior jacket is anything to go by will be with me for as long as I am riding.
Thanks to all the staff at Bikers Paradise for a great product and outstanding customer service.
