Most clothing brands will often turn to exotic or romantic-sounding locations when looking for inspiration for naming their latest clothing ranges, but LS2 has trodden a different path when labelling its new Bolton jacket and Douglas trousers. Given the reputations of Greater Manchester and the Isle of Man for somewhat inclement weather, it is no surprise that the three layer softshell fabric used for both garments is highly wind- and waterproof, and that there is also a thermal quilted liner to take care of the Northern chills. Easyflex shoulder and elbow protectors are fitted into the Bolton with a pocket for an optional back protector, while the Douglas has the same spec armour at the knees and, optionally, the hips. Both come in men’s sizes S-5XL, and both retail for £129.99.
