Field tested in the backcountry of British Columbia, the Expedition Motorcycle Jacket is designed for long-haul touring.
Made from a 3-layer Japanese field nylon, this heavy-duty fabric is abrasion-resistant, waterproof, and surprisingly breathable. This fabric has been double-layered in critical impact areas along the shoulders, sleeves, and back for additional protection. Unlike the detachable waterproof liners commonly used in motorcycle apparel, the Expedition jacket is fully seam sealed, making the entire garment waterproof on its own.
For protective padding, we partnered with D3O®, an industry leader in shock-absorbing body armor. D3O® pads are malleable when handled at slow speeds, but tighten upon high impact to absorb energy. The Expedition jacket features the standard shoulder, elbow, and back pads, as well as two fully-integrated front chest pads that don’t get in the way of the front zipper.
