This jacket has much more going on with it than good looks. The lightweight textile jacket is constructed using a mix of Kevlar and Cordura fabrics for some super abrasion protection. Inside the jacket’s satin lining are CE-approved level 1 elbows and shoulder armor and a back-protector pocket.
We found the Trent jacket to be much more versatile than it looks. If riding in cold or wet weather, the Trent has a water-resistant “aqua guard” zipper by YKK as well as a removable heavy-duty fleece hood. If riding in the heat, the Trent jacket also has a large back vent and a pair of shoulder intake vents to keep you cool. The construction and fit of this jacket are very nice, and it doesn’t have a bunch of un-needed features and shiny crap hanging off of it like so many other current offerings in the motorcycle marketplace.
