Five years ago, I have bought myself first pair of motorcycle jeans. They are Trilobite jeans - (link is here) and I still have them. I still ride with them, even they do have definitely more than 40.000km on roads with me.
Last year Trilobite - (link to official page here) came to me, and ask me if I would be willing to do a review for them about Trilobite 761 Illenius - professional motorbike, urban style hoodie. I said why not. I love hoodies, so it was actually a no brainer. But it needs to be a honest review, and It will take some time, I said. I need to understand the apparel better, find its pros and cons. Here I am, five months of using, later. And I am bringing you this honest review.
A high performance protective hoodie from Trilobite® will give a rider perfect protection. Looking like a hoodie, Illenius is fully lined with original DuPont™ Kevlar® aramid fibres to serve maximum abrasion resistance. At elbows, shoulders and back there are CE Level 2 protectors. You can install the back protector in two ways. Either you can partially show it or you can completely hide it. Comfort zones under arms, elbows, and shoulders are made with elastic material and ribbing to ensure ease of motion. You can easily grab the handle bars while nothing pulls you back. To fix the position of sleeves, these hoodies have a thumb sleeve fixture. To fit the hoodie firmly to your body you will use a flex Velcro strap in the waist zone inside the hoodie. 3M Scotchlite reflective panels all over the hoodie does not disturb the design and increase visibility on road when it gets dark.

Outer shell lining: Full aramid fibres lining made with Kevlar® by progressive DuPont™ technology
