Go up a size - the waist is fully adjustable!

good for cycling!

The picture looks like a collection of futuristic grenades, and I can't unsee it.

Black is a great colour for cycling, but only off-road. Hides you nicely from all those pesky cars, buses and lorries.

Rather stick the revo hi-viz over what I've already got.

good prices there, not needed by me but nice to see like minded gear brought onto the site, heat !

Thank you
Ordered

and good for riots or self defence

These will keep you far from BoneDry, I can assure you.

Bbbbbbrrrrrrr. ...illiant. Heat the hottie

Go for your chest size.42' is usually medium.

Great price for a branded jacket....HOT

Generally I thought medium is 40"

Personally I wouldn't touch this because I need proper protection,
Best solution is to get a decent set of leathers on ebay and wear a one piece waterproof over the top, but I assume this is more marketed at scooter riders.

I've read a lot about leakage with this Oxford brand line.

Agreed. Oxford gear used to be great, but it's really gone downhill in the last decade or so. Definitely built to a price now, as they say.

Reminds me, I really want a pair of Sidi Adventures, but always going for too much.

Are you actually a biker? What a rubbish comment.

Come off a bike at 60mph+ does not make a difference whether or not you ride a motorcycle or a scooter, protection is still key.

You are surely aware that scooters come in power capacities greater than 50cc?!?

It all depends on brand and it really annoys me tbh. But if you go for your chest size you should be fine.Sometimes 42' is put as Large and sometimes as Medium.

Full leathers on a scooter - no thanks..

Just bought a new jacket but heat anyway

Did you read my comment, I said I assume that this cheap jacket is aimed at scooter riders, who seem to rarely care about protective gear. The suggestion of leathers was for motorcyclists who would no doubt buy this thinking it is a good deal, or will protect them enough.

Yes, I'm well aware, there are scooters out there more powerful than my bike, my reference is to people who, like the above are not all that concerned with their own safety or protection, who in my observation are generally new scooter/moped riding chavs.
You kind of missed the point entirely.

What is it with people with trying make comments that sound and look cleverer the one and other?

it is a rubbish jacket regardless what it is marketed for ( scooters motorbikes track bikes)

I wouldn't even wear it if it was free.

Every biker who come of a bike in their life time knows you can not buy enough protection.

I guess this would be acceptable if you were working as a pizza delivery person on top of a yacc scooter restricted to 30 mph but again who is gonna stop the car coming at you doing 50 mph so move on.

No, seems you miss the point entirely, textile jackets (cordura) provide adequate protection (you mention they do not), whether riding on a scooter or motorcycle, as do leathers. Your generalisation there of scooter or moped riding chavs is also insulting to those of us that ride scooters, and in fact how many people these days ride mopeds?

There are preconceptions I detest as a scooter rider.....

It's a moped (a 50cc machine that is both engine and pedal driven)
A preconceived idea that it must look like a Vespa/Lambretta
People that ride them all wear tracksuit bottoms

As a fairly recent (nearly 1.5 years) CBT certificate owner, and even more recent (6 months) full license owner, it was drummed into us at BOTH trainings about protection.

There is an element of people wearing tracksuit bottoms, and jeans, on both scooters and motorcycles (which would rip through on tarmac in less than a second). At the least I wear kevlar jeans, and for longer distances consider leather trousers or textile if wet. And with even a top speed of only 67mph with a decent tail wind!, there are often thoughts pass through my mind I am glad I did.

good buy, and goast bikes have great customer service. hot from me

Leathers are no better/worse than good textile protective gear..

Take it on face value chaps, some people cant afford expensive gear and id sooner see someone in this than t shirt and trainers seen on some sports bikes...better than nothing and I appreciate someone else finding something and being bothered to post it for others benefits...happy happy sunny bike days are inbound !!!!

You're making a big deal out of nothing, I said that this jacket is probably aimed at scooter riders, as in marketed towards them.
The rest of the stuff has come from what you've said, I have nothing against any rider, when I see lots of moped riders around my area, with no protection, dodging in and out of traffic with not even a shoulder check it gives off a bad vibe.

It's a very good point, and yeah really looking forward to it after an ok winter on the bike.
Personally I can't afford most the expensive gear, so I pick it all up dirt cheap from ebay

Not making a big deal over anything, just don't want anyone new into a thread firstly getting the wrong stereotype of textile jackets, and secondly getting the wrong stereotype over what scooter riders wear or should be wearing.

And once again, moped riders? In this day and age and this country? Do you live in India?

So if this jacket is "marketed" for scooter riders, and you need better protection (in your opinion leather) and textile jackets do not offer decent protection in your opinion then answer this....

Just wtf should scooter riders be wearing??!?!

Again, you're misquoting me.
Go back and read what I actually said before trying to get a response.

Show me where I said that "textile jackets do not offer decent protection" I mentioned only this product.

Also, please look at the definition of moped.

You said you assume this is more marketed towards scooter riders and want something that offers better protection (leathers)

Then you said this jacket is "probably" aimed towards scooter riders.

It's not, its a generic looking textile jacket, not a scooter specific jacket. How do you know its lack of quality?

The definition of moped is exactly the terms motorcycle - pedal, a small displacement bike with pedals.

You then go on to stereotype scooterists lacking protection, which then leads back to square one, the point I initially made of which others who DID get exactly what I was referring to (no misquotes here) liked.

And then the argument goes full circle, it does not matter whether you are a scooterist or a motorcyclist, hitting the tarmac at 60mph+ you should be considering the same level of protection.

"Reading into" what you are saying and making assumptions then as you deem this jacket to offer less protection it would be better suited to scooterists, why? Styling? In your assumption because scooterists do not need as much protection? Also why is it poor quality? Do you know its denier?
