    Default BikingBrotherHood Riding Jakcet - Xplorer

    I was in search of a good budget riding jacket just before my Mumbai-Bangalore-Mumbai ride and had researched on many of the jackets available. Once i came across the Xplorer from BikingBrotherHood, I decided to buy it after a good research about it. I emailed to BikingBrotherHood to get a personal review on this jacket and they did not fail to deliver on my expectations in their response. I ordered for my size in Red and the jacket was available 3 days prior to my ride. It costed me 5999 Rs at the Andheri Dealer “Helmet Store”

    Has been over 4000 kms I am using this jacket, and it is one of the best of the lot. The quality is superb for a budget jacket. It comes with CE rated armors at the elbows, shoulder and the Back. The quality of the armors is good and they fit perfectly in their places.

    The build quality is great with a combination of 600D Cordura and Mesh. I felt that the jacket comprises of Cordura the most, unlike few others I tried on before getting this, but the mesh is very well in place for optimum air flow. I initially thought that it might get hot due to less mesh as compared to others, but surprisingly the air flow is best and keeps the body ventilated without the thermal liner.

    The jacket has a detachable thermal liner which serves well against the 4 am cold. On my Bangalore ride, the jacket kept me warm and protected from the December morning cold. It has a reflective piping at the back ,front and the sides which is good in the dark

    The new versions of this jacket(which I have) do not have a rain liner inside the jacket but an external rain jacket is given to wear it on the jacket, which I feel is the best as the jacket does not get wet which is not the case when the rain liner is inside the jacket.

    The jacket has a zip pocket at the back below the back armor to keep the rain liner and is very convenient. I haven't tested it in rains, but the build quality is assuring.

    The jacket has adjustable straps on the arms and elbows and the waist. It has zippers near the wrist for adjustments and straps to get snug fit. It has pockets to fit in the Chest armor too, which is excellent. Although it has to be bought separately, at this price budget , a provision to do so is quite convenient. I am yet to order the chest armors so have no idea about the quality, but as listed on their website, the armors are in compliance with pre-Standard Pr-EN 1621.3 level 1. It has a zip to be attached with Riding pants.

    It has 4 pockets, two on the outside on either sides and two on the thermal liner. One pocket on the thermal liner is a big one and can hold wallets and some other stuff. Whereas the other one is a slim one to store headphones, watch, etc.

    I recently washed the jacket and it’s very easy to remove the armors and stuff.

    I tested this jacket on my Bangalore, Goa, Nashik and other small rides and my personal view on this Product from BikinBrotherhood is awesome.

    Do PM me if you need to know anything else about this Jacket. Also I bought the full gauntlet gloves from BikingBrotherHood for which ill post a review too.
