Gear Grind: Segura’s Sierra Textile Jacket Goes ‘Caj for the Holidays
A Lumberjack for the Lanes
Amidst the plethora of motorcycle gear brands that aim for the average daily rider comes a new addition to the segment from the French district – and being Canadian and born into a plaid loincloth, you’ll forgive the enthusiasm of this particular gear drop.
Meet Segura’s newest jacket on the rack – a textile number with a faded, plaid red and blue finish.
She’s plaid, she’s rad, and she’s ready to meet your machine of choice.
We love the homage to ‘caj, but we’re not so starstruck that we won’t also take a peek at the protection – and with the brand’s company name translating to “safe” in Spanish, we’re expecting top-notch to be the standard.
According to RideApart, Segura’s Sierra Textile Jacket is constructed of a “Dupont Kevlar polycotton tartan weave ensuring excellent abrasion resistance in the event of a slide.”
Thanks to its waterproof membrane, the jacket is also considered both wind and rain-proof – and with CE-certified protectors on the elbows and shoulders (and the back compatible with up to Level 2 armour) rendering a complete Class A PPE certification in accordance to EN 1621-1: 2013 and EN 17092 standards, we’ll swap out your flimsy plaid baby-blanket number for this one, hands down.
“For added convenience, the Sierra features a total of four pockets—two on the outside, and two on the inside. It’s available in sizes ranging from S to 4XL, and retails for 239.99 Euros, translating to around $272 USD.”
“It’s available online through Segura’s various distributors across the globe.”
