Men’s 1909 Distressed Leather Jacket | 743-926

743-926_AThe 1909 Leather Jacket is a vintage style premium leather jacket complete with a name that pays homage to the year 1909 when Indianapolis Motor Speedway first opened.  Constructed from top grain leather the jacket’s distressed leather body only carries subtle accents on the chest, arms, and quilted shoulders. The simple design mimics an early bomber style motorcycle jacket sported by motorcyclists during the early 1900’s. The antique brass YKK zippers used on all four external pockets complete the vintage look, overall the 1909 checks all the boxes for a stylish classic leather jacket but it also has performance features found in today’s top motorcycle jackets. The collar features a two snap enclosure and additionally is padded for comfort allowing full range of motion without irritation. The jacket fits snug without sacrificing movement with stretch panels arranged at the ribs. The shoulders and elbows are protected with Sas-Tec CE-approved armor secured snugly in the pockets so the pads stay right where you need them. The shoulder and elbow pads are intended to protect the rider from impact but also to provide comfort made from a dense visco-elastic foam that is both light weight and comfortable. For extra protection the 1909 has a pocket for the Sas-Tech CE back protector which the rider can purchase separately. Perforated panels run on the underside of each arm starting just below the armpit. The front pocket is mesh lined and when opened also acts as an intake vent promoting generous airflow through the two rear exhaust vents. The interior liner is a vest style removable EverHeat jacket liner with Kwikwick panels designed to fend off the winter chills.  Overall the 1909 is a top quality leather jacket well worth the investment and like anything worth while it only gets better with age.

Women’s Catalina Leather Jacket | 743-929

743-929_AThe Catalina Leather Jacket is a vintage styled jacket cut specifically to trace a woman’s natural frame and offers uncompromised protection. The jacket’s body is compromised of a thick 1.1-1.2 mm distressed top grain leather styled to sport a vintage look complete with antique brass YKK zippers throughout. The Catalina maintains a sophisticated appearance on the outside with faint accents on the right arm and shoulders. Underneath the sophisticated front the Catalina is equipped with feather light visco-elastic Sas-Tec armor in both the shoulders and elbows to offer unmatched protection. The pockets the elbow and shoulder pads rest in fit perfectly tucked up against the body keeping them right where they need to be for impact protection. The jacket fits perfectly snug with hip adjustments and  utilizes a leather rib stretch gathering for movement. Shoulder intake vents and rear exhaust vents lie inconspicuously between the leather overlay and the jacket body allowing an ample amount of air flow. The jacket’s quilted EverHeat interior liner with KwickWich technology helps the rider stay comfortable throughout the seasons. Reflective material on both the arms and shoulders are obscure during the daylight but apparent at night for added visibility. The collar is padded for comfort allowing a full range of motion without irritation. Overall the Catalina is a top notch vintage style leather jacket perfectly complimentary with any style helmet and boots.
