Motorcycling is changing, riders are searching for an authentic experience, with style and beauty becoming more important than BHP and tiring discussions about getting your knee down. As a result, custom bikes and cafe racers have become hugely popular, especially in the UK. With this movement, motorcycle clothing manufacturers are producing complementary jackets which deliver both style and safety. We're thrilled that there's a British company who are making some of the most iconic classic motorcycle clothing in the sector. Enter Merlin Bike Gear, who now offer a thorough range of beautiful, high quality motorcycle jackets. The Merlin Heritage Collection is specifically tailored to the classic, cafe racer and naked bike market. This includes beautifully made, stylish leather and waxed cotton jackets.
Belstaff and Barbour are probably the most recognised brands in this motorcycle sector, both make excellent gear, but they do come at a price. The encouraging thing about Merlin is that they make very high quality jackets, using top quality materials and workmanship, but at more realistic prices. Their wax cotton jackets, for example, use the very same waxed cotton from Halley Stevensons of Scotland as do Belstaff and Barbour. The Merlin jacket range, including models such as the Sandon jacket, includes all of the practical features you need from a motorcycle jacket. Waterproof, CE approved armour, removable thermal lining, lots of adjustment all at a cracking price. Make sure you refer to our sizing charts, on the product pages, since Merlin jackets fit a little on the large size. Stick to the sizing chart and you won't have a problem. If you do happen to choose the wrong size, no problem, we can exchange it for you.
