    Just a comment to give you the heads up on another jacket to add to the mix. I have been wearing a Richa Bonneville for the last year. I bought it as it was a Ride magazine best buy. Very similar style to the others here but as well as a waxed (British Millerain cotton) outer it also has waterproof membrane in the jacket. So even if your waxing has worn off it still is 100% waterproof. CE certified protectors at the elbows, shoulder and back and a quilted removable lining.

    Been wearing mine everyday for over a year (and riding most days to commute) and its been great, only niggle is Ive lost a popper off the front, Richa supply you with a spare one but Ive yet to find someone to fit it.

    Well worth a look if you’re in the market for a retro styled waxed jacket.

      Thanks Geof, I did review here the Richa Scrambler jacket from the range which is very similar, but a shorter jacket.

    I’d agree with Geofpanic – I’ve got a Richa Bonneville & it’s by far the most waterproof jacket I’ve ever had.
    Coming back from Euro Lambretta last year I got caught in a prolonged storm with a massive downpour of heavy rain & it didn’t leak at all.
    The inner lining, which is warm enough for winter riding without additional layers, can be taken out for hotter days.
    The only negative is the belt which is cheap & useless to be honest, but it’s not needed really.
