Italian firm Tucano Urbano release an all-weather jacket, the Gulliver.
Tucano Urbano has been designing and making high quality clothing for 16 years and have been on the wish-list of many a style conscious scooterist ever since. Now the company is releasing a jacket aimed at riders who take on more than just the urban jungle on their daily commute.
The Gulliver is a full-length textile jacket that features a thick inner liner which is designed to keep you warm through the coldest of winter rides. The jacket is completely waterproof thanks to the Hidroscud® technology which the makers declare prevents any leaks without compromising on breathability. The outer shell is completely waterproof and tear-proof Oxford Polyamide fabric.
The makers have also ensured that those of us who ride in the more favourable weather do not overheat by including chest and side vents in the design. Alongside this the jacket’s inner liner can be removed completely and worn as a separate garment if you wish, meaning you now have a light summer jacket with all the protection and waterproof properties of a full winter touring coat.
Tucano Urbano have cleverly included covert reflective sections in the coat which can be folded out at night or at the rider’s discretion, clearly aware of the need for extra visibility at night without compromising the overall look of the item. The jacket features full CE approved elbow and shoulder armour with the ability to add in a back protector. The Gulliver has four large external pockets with smaller internal pockets also.
Bikesocial will be giving the Gulliver a real-world test soon so stay tuned.
The Tucano Urbano Gulliver is available in sizes S to 3XL and retails at £199.99 including VAT.
