What is Covec?

Covec™ SR4 and SR6 is developed by a UK company and offers certain advantages over more traditional materials like Aramids (Kevlar) and UHMWPE’s and a lot of advantages over Polyamide yarns (like Nylon) and Polyesters yarns. In a nutshell:

  1. High abrasion resistance - tests show a single layer of leather tested to CE Level 1 passes at 4.74 seconds compared to 5.21 seconds (SR4) and 6.26 seconds (SR6). These are valuable seconds you’ll need if you take a tumble.
  2. High cut resistance ( 3 x that of Aramids such as Kevlar)
  3. Low thermal conductivity - won’t burn you like Polyethylene’s like Dyneema may.
  4. Does not degrade with washing and wearing as with most Aramids
  5. High burst strength with triple stitching tested to 955 kPa.
  6. Micro Climate Inside - keeping your body at a controlled temperature
  7. Breathable - the knitted structure allows for good air circulation
  8. Lightweight - 5 x stronger than steel for the same weight!

Love, love, love this jacket!

Customer service was as excellent as other reviews suggest - the jacket needed a repair and my size couldn't be exchanged and so LadyBiker paid for the repair as I did not want to let the jacket go!

Extremely comfy, looks great - casual look.

Great jacket - the armour is too bulky though...

Im usually a 12/ 14 on the top as I have big old broad shoulders, so I got a size 16. The jacket they actually sent me was the slightly newer version of this one as they didn't have my size in this one. But i preferred it as the hood is black instead of grey.

I did find that with the shoulder and elbow armour in, the arms are super tight and constrictive, despite being a 16 (so 4* for the armour being too bulky and the cut of the arms too narrow to accommodate it), but with these removed it fits wonderfully. It doesn't come with a back protector, but I have bought one that fits this jacket and my summer mesh jacket, and I have decided to get the RevIt SeeSmart armour for the elbows as this looks much more flexible and thinner, whilst offering protection (hopefully it fits alright!). I use this as a casual around town jacket for shorter rides anyway, but it looks cool AF, especially with my kevlar leggings. Love it!

Gorgeous soft jacket

This jacket is lovley. Soft and a perfect fit. I’m a 10 and it’s a true fit in size. Amazing quality. Feels comfortable And looks amazing on. really looks like a ladies jacket. And
Love the hood.

Gorgeous soft jacket

This jacket is gorgeous, soft and warm and flexible - everything that normal bike gear isn’t. It looks like casual wear (admittedly with serious shoulder pads but looks cool!!). Feels very sturdy and I have no concerns about safety. Sizing is true, something severely lacking in the women’s bike gear arena.

Daisy was extremely helpful in checking the sizes. Communication was top class and extremely quick.

Ladybiker is a real diamond in the rough when it comes to the world of bike kit for women, and I will honestly never order anywhere else for my kit from now on. The customer service and quality are superb, and I’m actually excited to bike to work tomorrow!!

Fantastic fantastic fantastic!!
