Vietnam; an amazing, exotic country; where the temperature can drop to freezing in the northern mountains and well over 40C in the south. The weather is constantly challenging: 100% humidity, tropical storms, floods and typhoons. There are great, empty, sweeping country roads, chaotic city traffic and slippery jungle trails. To say nothing of close encounters with water buffalo, monkeys, dangerous snakes and other wild animals. In other words, it’s a biker’s paradise. But only if you’re wearing the right gear, which is why Hawk, Senior Tour Leader at Hoi An Motorcycle Adventures, wears a Wiese Airspin jacket in black & neon. For someone who rides everyday it’s perfect. It has loads of mesh panels to cope with the heat, but it’s also got a warm, removable, thermal liner for winter and it’s waterproof too. It’s also got armour that feels thinner, lighter and stronger than in most jackets, which is very useful, because riding in those conditions, even the most experienced riders can have an off. And one final thing, it looks so damn cool, even the water buffalo are impressed.
