Andromeda is a new motorcycle-specific parka jacket from Italian brand Hevik. Aimed at the urban all-weather commuter, the Andromeda features a removable hood for off-bike use and is made of laminated waterproof fabric (rated to 5000mm static pressure) with a 100g removable thermal liner. To make the Andromeda a bit more than a depths-of-winter overcoat, Hevik has installed an air recirculation ventilation system – the storm flap on the front of the jacket can be unzipped and folded over to reveal a mesh-covered opening allowing air into the jacket. More practicality is added by the three internal and five external pockets, including a document pocket on the arm and two pockets with magnetic flaps for added security. CE level 1 armour is fitted at the shoulders and elbows and there is a back pocket for an optional HFB level 2 protector. It comes only in black, in sizes S to 4 XL at an SRP to be confirmed at the EICMA show.
