Everything you need to know about textile jackets under £200
Written by Bryn

At the same time, the textile jacket market is extremely saturated with such a wide range of price points making it hard to actually judge what you do and don't need.

To help you out we spoke to Martin Brown, director at motorcycle clothing and accessories store, Bike Stop, to find out everything you need to know about textile jackets under a very respectable price point of £200.
