There’s not a lot of branding on this garment, but there are a number of small details that show how much thought went into making the Ludlow functional. The hood, for one, which is undeniably a styling choice, is held in place against the back of the jacket by an integrated magnet so that it doesn’t flap about on the freeway. If you want to remove the hood, it zips right off, and there’s a flap on the leather-topped collar that covers the half zip and gives the jacket a finished look. Nicely done, Reax. Then there are the front pockets, where you’ll find a tethered key clasp plus zippers that are oriented so that they close down. Why doesn’t everyone do it this way?! It’s so much easier to pull a zipper down while you’re on the bike, and as a guy who tends to leave my pockets open (usually with my house keys and garage-door opener in stow) I really appreciate this simple yet helpful detail.
