The new Buffalo Atom textile motorcycle jacket aims to be durable and long-lasting. And at a relatively low price. To do that, Buffalo have combined 600 denier Ripstop Nylon with full-grain leather panels. So it should be pretty hard to split the Atom in normal riding conditions.
Along with the nylon and leather outer is a waterproof, windproof and breathable drop lining. And you get a removable 120-gram thermal quilted lining for when things get cold. For warmer weather, there is ventilation at the shoulders, upper arms and the rear of the Buffalo Atom.
The new Buffalo Atom textile motorcycle jacket comes equipped with CE-approved shoulder and elbow protection. And there’s space to add an optional back protector. Along with inner cup reinforcement on the shoulders, you also get some external sliders.
What else is there to note about the new Buffalo Atom textile motorcycle jacket? Well, there’s an adjustable twin belt system to sort out the fit around your waist. And Velcro adjusters at the collars and cuffs. You also get further adjustment on the arms to prevent air going up your sleeves. Plus, there’s an 8-inch connecting zip for matching trousers to keep your lower back covered.
When it comes to storage, there are two external hand-warmer pockets. And three internal pockets for all your treasured valuables.
The new Buffalo Atom textile motorcycle jacket is available in sizes S-3XL in Black, and costs £139.99. The optional CE-approved back protector is an extra £14.99, and matching Buffalo Endurance trousers are £99.99.

The new Weise Stuttgart textile motorcycle jacket is new for 2018. And it aims to combine value for money with versatile performance. The German city of the same name isn’t just the base for the likes of Porsche and Mercedes-Benz. It’s also a similar climate to the UK, although with more extremes of hot and cold weather. So that’s handy to know.
Back to the jacket itself, and the design looks alright. The outer has a waterproof, windproof and breathable liner. And inside is a removable 120-gram thermam quilted lining. The Weise Stuttgart textile jacket has adjustment at the waist, upper and lower arms, and cuffs, to enable you to get comfortable and avoid the jacekt flapping around or letting cold weather in. And there’s a Neoprene trimmed collar at the top, plus an 8-inch connection zip for Weise riding trousers at the bottom to enclose you as much as possible.
The Weise Stuttgart textile motorcycle jacket also has zipped vents at the chest, back and lower arms to keep you chilled when the temperature rises. And there’s CE-approved armour at the shoulders, elbows and in the back if you’re unfortunate enough to need it.
Other details include the reflective details to help you be seen in low light. And there are waterproof external pockets, a large rear map pocket and two hand-warmer pockets for storage. So you should have plenty of space for your wallet, phone and keys.
Another practical feature is that the Weise Stuttgart textile motorcycle jacket comes with a two-year warranty. It’s available in sizes S-5XL in either Stone/Gun or Stone/Neon colours, and in M-3XL in Stone/Blue. And it will cost you £179.99.
