Hooded motorcycle jackets are a point of contention for some riders. Due to their design, they can generate a substantial amount of drag. In some instances, this results in discomfort. In a bid to create the ultimate something for everyone jacket, Italian riding gear expert Spidi has released the new H2Out Armoured Hoodie.
The Spidi H2Out Hoodie is the company’s ultimate any day, any weather, any occasion jacket.
Boasting CE prEN 17092-4:2017 Class A safety certification the H2Out hoodie comes complete with CE Level 1 Warrior Lite shoulder and elbow armour. For those who want to step things up a notch, you also have the option of adding a matching back protector. This is Spidi’s preferred low-profile armour in their urban riding gear range as it doesn’t detract from the silhouette of their jackets.
To help avoid the need for armour in the first place, Spidi has also added 3M Scotchlite reflective details for improved nighttime visibility. On the off chance, you do go down, the H2Out Hoodie also utilises an abrasion-resistant 3-layer fabric outer shell to keep your skin safe.
The Spidi H2Out Hoodie also excels at protecting you from the elements.
The jacket’s internal microfibre lining has been laminated using their specially designed Windout membrane keeping the wind and rain at bay. In addition, there’s a Polarfleece liner that will keep you warm without the burden of added weight or bulk. Knitted cuffs prevent the breeze from entering the sleeves and the 2 zippered waterproof outer pockets offer a space to stash your valuables.
If you find riding with the hoodie, not to your liking, Spidi has designed theirs to be removable. That way you can stash it under your seat until it’s required.
