A classic Riding Jacket - Merlin have done well with their latest version of the classic waxed rider jacket, The Kurkbury. The Kurkbury, is a belted, three quarter length jacket, vintage in style design, which harks back to the good old days. however, are a bit less nostalgic in nature and cater to the needs of the modern motorcyclist. A removable Outlast thermal lining will keep you warm in winter and can be removed on warmer days. A Reissa Active waterproof and breathable membrane sits just underneath the Cotec outer layer and assures you stay dry in a downpour.
Made from Halley Stevensons 8oz otec fabric, this jacket retains all the looks of a waxed jacket, without extra oiliness, which, in the past, made it's way on to your bike and sometimes visor. In addition to this upgrade of fabric, add the updated armour too and you have one of the lightest Jackets of its kind on the market. Equipped with D3O's LP1 armour, which is even more flexible than the original, and a whole lot more breathable thanks to its ventilated geometry, it not only makes the jacket a lot lighter, but it achieves a CE level rating AA.
The four flap pocket design is functional and timeless. We're particularly fond of the large pocket on the lower back of the jacket, an excellent place to stash your gloves when getting off the bike. The Kurkbury has so much storage space it greatly reduces the need to take a backpack with you! The fit is spot on for anyone looking for a vintage looking jacket with modern protective features.
