The Spidi Metropole is a new motorcycle jacket from the Italian company designed specifically for winter and cool weather riding. It has both Thermore® EVOdown insulation to keep you warm, and an H2Out membrane to keep you dry.
For safety, the outer shell is made from a high tenacity polyamide tenax fabric for abrasion resistance, and it has Warrior Protectors (certified EN 1621-1 Level 1) in the shoulders and elbows. There is also a pocket for a back protector (up to CE Level 2 Z147).
For inclement weather, the jacket has a waterproof external pocket, a waterproof internal pocket, an additional pocket for delicate items like phones or glasses, and a detachable hood.
There’s a sleeve pocket on the left side to hold cash or cards (or other items you want to keep handy), and four large front pockets for maps and supplies.
Spidi offer the Metropole in two colors – army green or black, and in sizes ranging from M through XXXL.
