Make sure your winter riding is warm and comfortable. To make it so, Held is offering the best winter riding-gear package you’ll ever find, and all for under $1900. You can’t get more warmth for a better price.
And the gear is engineered to be entirely adaptable. So it’s warm in winter and cool in summer – except the gloves. They are always warm.
Held Carese II Touring Jacket – Article 640
The outer is 500D DuPont Cordura. It is lined with 3D mesh panels and a Coolmesh liner to promote air circulation. The membrane is removable Gore-Tex three-layer technology. It can be worn inside or over the jacket.
The external magnetic closure pockets are waterproof, as are the three internal pockets (and Smartphone pocket and map/document pocket). The collar is soft, and a full-length back protector is easily integrated into the lining. There is dual-adjustment on the arms, a waist belt, and zippered air-vents on the arms, chest and back. And there is a connecting zip for pants.
It is armoured with Held’s exclusive EN 1621-1 CE-approved cloverleaf SAS-TEC shoulder and elbow protectors, and comes in a range of colours. It is available in sizes from Small through to 5XL, as well as exclusive women’s sizing (from DXS to D4XL), with an RRP of $950.

The pants feature a Pittards leather anti-slip patch on the seat, zippers and Velcro-sealing at the ankles, stretch panels at the knees, four magnetic-closure external pockets which double as air-vents, double leg-adjustment, a high waist with adjustable Velcro flaps and button fixtures for optional braces.
They zip perfectly to the Carese II jacket and come with Held’s famous EN 1621-1 CE-approved height-adjustable SAS-TEC 3D knee protectors. There are also pockets for the optional coccyx protector and hip protectors.
You can have them in short-leg or long-leg styles and for men the size range goes from Small to 5XL. For ladies, it runs from DXS to D4XL, and they come in black, grey-black and grey-red for an RRP of $650.
Held makes the finest gloves in the world. It stands to reason its winter gloves will be the best you’ll ever have for staying warm without the bulk.
The outer shell is Taslan with a leather-detailed back and the palm is goatskin. The lining is supremely warm 3M Thinsulate, with Thermoplush Fleece on the back of the hand. The membrane is polyurethane-coated Gore-Tex for maximum warmth.
The gloves come with a tunnel-strap, Velcro adjustment at the wrist and cuffs, a visor wipe, and stretch-fabric panels on the back for an excellent fit. The hard-plastic knuckle protectors are leather-covered and the reinforced edge of the hand utilises Superfabric for superior protection. The Held Cold Champ Winter glove is available for an RRP of $290.
