Bering Balistik CE Waterproof Mens Jacket
The Bering Balistik is a premium touring jacket with a laminate waterproof membrane, a removable thermal lining, CE level 1 elbow and shoulder protection.
Laminated waterproofing is the highest level of waterproofing available for motorcycle clothing on the market right now, for any motorcyclist who rides regularly in the UK with the fear of sudden rain inevitable Laminated Waterproofing is the feature that will be the most desirable in any piece of motorcycle clothing. The Balistik jacket and trousers are Bering’s newest product and feature their own style high performing laminate waterproofing. Laminate works differently from the standard waterproof drop-down liner, the top layer of the jacket and trousers are treated to act as a barrier and repel the water, not allowing it to soak into the clothing.
The Bering Balistik jacket also comes with CE Approved elbow and shoulder protectors, and if you want even more protection there is a pocket designed to fit the Bering Back Protector. For greater cold weather protection for winter riding, the Balistik jacket has a 120g Micro-fleece liner that is fully removable, meaning you can adapt to the situation and conditions at hand. Reflective material on the jacket is there to help keep you visible in poor vision conditions if you’re riding at night or if the sun is not shining any more.
The Bering Balistik is a fantastic high-performing jacket and trousers and gives you super weather protection thanks to its laminate waterproofing for a fraction of the usual cost. And get the matching Bering Balistik Laminated Waterproof trousers.

Bering is a French brand of motorcycle clothing. They have been making motorcycle clothing for many years, and they pride themselves on providing bikers of all levels with the optimum degree of safety as well as style and comfort.
Bering motorcycle clothing is an offshoot of a company that specialised in making clothing for sailors and fishermen - the polar bear logo is a reference to the Newfoundland fishermen's reference to the "admirable equipment" that polar bears had to protect themselves against the weather conditions.
The name is a reference to the Bering Strait, the point where Alaska and Siberia meet, which is impassable much of the time due to ice.
Having built a reputation for making highly waterproof and durable clothing, Bering has made advances in protection and the Bering motorcycle clothing range expanded into leathers. Bering quotes their values as Safety: Imagining, making and marketing the best product solutions for passive safety for bike riders.
Reliability: Ensuring a degree of manufacturing quality that meets the most demanding official standards.
Innovation: Anticipating and developing tomorrow's product solutions.
Comfort: Rider comfort is a factor that cannot be separated from safety and is always a part of it.
Responsibility: Participating in an eco-responsible attitude by designing products using processes that respect the environment.
Created in 1951 by a company called Plastex, Bering specialises in protective clothing and was once dedicated to making clothes for ocean sailors. Made for people in need of efficient, manoeuvrable but also breathable clothing, Bering became well known for their gear and they are now one of the market leaders. Additionally, they spend a fair amount of money on research and development and take the responsibility of safety very seriously.
If your Bering clothing has had a lot of use, the Dynamic Waterproof Coating on the outside of the jacket may need refreshing, we recommend Storm Wash In Waterproofer, available in all our stores.

What is the Technology Behind Bering?
Bering is famous for using original and innovative technology in their advanced motorcycle clothing. Some of these technologies include:
Adjusting Dynamic Technology
Adjusting dynamic technology is one of Bering's main selling points. Adjusting Dynamic Technology (ADT) is essentially an adaptive clothing tightening system. What this means is that your jacket can tighten around your chest and biceps for a better fit – which is great for a number of reasons. This means that your jacket can fit you better on the motorbike, guaranteeing that you always get the snugger "motorcycle jacket" fit, no matter what.
Air Dynamic System
The Air Dynamic System is a sophisticated system designed to allow users to adjust air flow within Bering clothing. You can adjust for maximum airflow in warmer weather and minimal airflow during the colder winter months.
BW2 Tech is the technology behind Bering's waterproof inserts. The technology included within a system of cloth inserts with microscopic pores (similar in principle to Gore-Tex's ePTFE fabric), allowing for breathability and waterproofing. BW2 Tech cloth varies based on the number of pores, allowing more breathability in different products depending on your needs.
BW2 Tech 100 allows for moderate breathability and excellent waterproofing qualities. It is suitable for riding in winter in cold or temperate countries.
BW2 Tech 500 allows for good breathability, with the same excellent waterproofing qualities as BW2 Tech 100. It is suitable for riding in winter or summer in cold or temperate countries, or for riding in winter in warmer countries.
BW2 Tech 1000 allows for excellent breathability, with excellent waterproofing qualities. It is suitable for riding in all seasons, in almost all countries.
Looks And Style
Bering are well known for their looks and style – they're one of the very few brands that can reasonably claim to have successfully balanced style and substance.
Their sense of style is subtle, taking the existing look of top-end motorcycle clothing and tweaking it, often slightly exaggerating features such as overstretching or leather padding for an understated, authentic, but striking look.
Good value even when I purchased at full price.
Great all around jacket. Purchased from Infinity at full price with matching trousers. Used in all weathers. No water ingress in the wet. A little warm in hot continental summers, but perfect for mixed British climate. The collar short and tight to button up but okay once the layering around the neck is reduced. The zip-up cuffs are close fitting and favour short gloves for summer or longer gloves over the cuff for the winter. The long zip on the forearm can be unzipped from the top for ventilation too. There are zipped vents front & back. I usually forget to zip or unzip as the weather changes but that doesn’t seem to affect the waterproofing. The build quality is excellent with laid-back style and hits the sweet spot on price. Keeping it clean is a doddle. I’ve not needed to wash either the jacket or the trousers, mud wipes off very easily with a wet e-cloth. No wear issues at all after two years. Unlike me not to complain, but very recommendable jacket and the trousers too.
