The Merlin Wax Jacket is a classic style, waxed jacket for motorcyclists. Created in collaboration with the highly regarded Halley Stevensons of Scotland in 8oz of their specialist wax cotton making this a strong, durable jacket.
Hidden inside the jacket is a waterproof, breathable Reissa membrane which ensures no water seeps through in wet weather whilst allowing moisture to dissipate as you become warm. This is complemented by a 125 gram thermal quilted liner which you have the option of unzipping from the jacket and removing if the temperature rises.
Further hidden protection - not against weather but in the event of an accident - are the CE approved pieces of shoulder and elbow armour. These sit in special pockets - secure with velcro strips - so you can remove them if you need to clean the jacket, or they need replacing. If you connect the jacket to any Merlin trousers, using the YKK connecting zip, you will have lower back coverage to keep the jacket from riding up and exposing your skin in an accident. There's also drawstrings inside the jacket which you can pull to tighten the jacket in a comfortable position.
Moving outside of the jacket there are four pockets - secured with flap over material then press studs - to keep your belongings secure on the go. If you tuck your hands inside the vertical entrance of the bottom two, nelson style, pockets you can keep them warm off the bike.
The final details of the jacket are the smart press studs used throughout, along with the classic criss-cross overlay that's draped over either shoulder. At either sleeve there are long zips for room to slide your gloves on and off, then you can secure the cuff closed using one of the two press studs which let you choose how snug the cuffs sit. The Merlin embroidered branding is subtle and lies at the bottom of the front flap over, along with a small badge that's stitched onto the left shoulder.
