May 24 2004. Belstaff's new range of protective clothing, cut and designed specifically for women, is proving a major success with this growing sector and a key design element that's found favour with female bikers is the ability for a motorcycle jacket to work both on and off the bike.

The Vogue and Seeker Jackets, manufactured in heavy-duty 600-denier Polyester are practical - with body armour and a waterproof, breathable lining - yet are designed to flatter the female form. The £99.99 Vogue Jacket is available in Silver/Black/White and Black/Gunmetal sizes 10-20, while the £129.99 Seeker Jacket comes in Duck Egg/Gunmetal sizes 10-18.

Similarly the armoured Lynx and Pantha Jackets, made from full-grain cowhide are designed to function effectively while riding but also look and feel the biz when off the bike. The £169.99 Lynx Jacket comes in three distinct colour schemes; Black/Red, Black/Gunmetal and Black/Blue in sizes 10-20. The £159.99 all-black Pantha Jacket has a detachable inner liner and is available in sizes 10-20. To compliment these two jackets Belstaff has developed the sracing style Cougar glove which comes in Red, Blue or Gun sizes small through to large priced at £39.99.
