Teknic Diamond Armored Jacket forIn some people's eyes, the problem with armored motorcycles jackets is… well, they look like armored motorcycle jackets. The Teknic Women's Diamond Jacket offers a good measure of protection while still looking good off the bike.

Let's start, as we should, with protection. The Teknic Diamond features Knox Lite CE-certified armor. I am a fan of Knox armor, as I have had it in several personal jackets. The Knox armor is fitted in pockets in the shoulder and forearm areas. In the back, there is what Teknic calls an Armorshield pad. I am not as familiar with this armor. It looks more substantial that the typical foam back insert, but it still comes up short of CE armor. The jacket's shell is a solid 600D Cordura.

Now I am no fashion god (as my wife will attest), but I like the way this jacket looks. It has a good feminine cut and an artistic logo on the left chest and right upper arm areas. It also has some pretty cool antique gold buckle adjusters at the waist. The jacket includes a waterproof, breathable liner system and a quilted taffeta full-sleeve removable liner.

I think venting would be my only question on this jacket. It has two underarm vents and a rear exhaust vent. I think the lack of intake venting, combined with the predominant black color, would make this jacket a bit steamy in extreme heat or humidity.
