Crafted with technical fabrics chosen for their abrasion, cut, and tear resistance, the Urbane Pro Utility Mk3 is designed to work seamlessly with all styles in the Knox Seasonless Collection.  In changing weather conditions, riders can add warm or waterproof layers, with the Urbane Pro Utility Mk3 serving as the core abrasion and armour layer beneath.

    I have just returned from a very hot TT 2023. I am able to take numerous jackets etc.. with me in the van including air bag systems. This Knox jacket was 100% my go to choice during the TT as it worked fantastically in the conditions with a feeling of security and comfort. 40 years of evolution and what a great Knox jacket.

    So far I’ve only covered about 400 miles of mostly back road riding and some truly hideous stretches in a couple of cities during the 20-30C heat wave that arrived in the UK at the start of Sept 23. This shirt/jacket has been a revelation. Over the years I have owned perforated leather jackets and textile jackets with zipped in mesh panels, none of them were as cool as I’d hoped for. There have been times earlier this year where I’ve dreaded having to put on my motorcycle gear as it has been so hot and humid, but all that has changed now.

    On my trail bike behind a small screen there is enough airflow through the shirt to keep me comfortable, even on those hideous rides on city streets approaching 30C. Out in the country the airflow is lovely and reminds me of riding in my youth in just jeans and a t-shirt. With a cotton t-shirt underneath my back was getting a bit sweaty where the protector sits, but changing to a man-made wicking MTB t-shirt with better air-flow solved that problem completely.

    An unexpected benefit was less helmet buffeting. I had noticed before that certain jackets seem to amplify the buffeting behind the screen around my helmet. I’d put this down to a screen issue, but the Knox shirt has virtually eliminated the buffering and the helmet noise and dropped considerably as a result.

    I’m about a 41” chest and the large size fits me well. If I have any complaints it is a common one, the phone pocket is too small and it would be nice to have zips rather than velco closings on the side pockets, but that is nit picking. I’ve not had to wear another layer on top yet, but I plan to do what I used to do with my perforated leather jacket and put on a lightweight windproof jacket when the temperatures drop later in the day.

    At the same time I bought the Action Pro Unisex Trousers in the hope that I could cool my legs along with my torso. I was concerned that a double layer, Knox trousers with a pair of cheapo jeans over the top might prove as hot as my textile ones (even with liner removed and vents open). Thankfully my fears were unfounded and the combo worked great banishing sweaty leg syndrome completely.

    My overriding feeling about the shirt and trousers is I wished I’d bought something akin years ago. Top mark Knox.

    Not worn in anger yet, but I must admit first impressions are good. A more substantial jacket than expected which I’m happy with. I fell between sizes so went up one and I’m glad I did. I look forward to summer rides in this jacket and colder ones with layers on top.

    I have a goretex Triumph Malvern jacket I normally live in over winter, but was disappointed this had only level 1 D30 pads & catagory A abrasion resistance. So I removed all the armour pads and use this underneath instead & bingo level 2 & catagory AA. A lot cheaper than buying a new goretex pro outer shell, although I may go the Klim route to AAA, when I can afford it. I also intend to remove the back protector & run an airbag gillet (In&Motion), when I have lost enough weight for it to fit under the jacket (& over the urban). All in all a good product, especially when in the sale.

Core Knox pieces, used for every ride and every season. Start with core protection and add layers to adapt and overcome all conditions, from unbearable heat through to driving rain.


Knox armoured shirts are at the heart of Knox protective apparel. They were first invented by the brand in the 1990’s. They’ve been a signature style ever since.
