We Indians are always looking for getting more bang for the buck in everything. This is why Maruti-Suzuki’s “Kitna Deti Hai” ad campaign resonated so well with public. And seeking value for money products in riding gear isn’t a new trend.

However, earlier we used to get sub-standard / knock-offs at lower prices and riding jackets used to start from Rs.5-6000/-. This put them out of reach of many riders who wanted to purchase riding jacket for the first time (mental barrier to spend so much money for JUST a jacket) or for riders who wanted something simple (that still offered good protection) for daily commute.

In most of the cases, companies decided (correctly in our opinion) to not offer the removable thermal and rain liners. This enables them to offer cheap riding jackets that has decently good level of protection at quite low prices. So we decided to identify cheap riding jackets that offer good level of protection and still won’t cost you a bomb.
