The classic motorcycle jacket has always been a perfect silhouette, but if we could request one major upgrade, it would be that the jacket get a through and comprehensive protection to create a beautiful riding jacket with that vintage look we love, but can also protect you from harm's way.
Thesis hopes to do this with their Armored Kangaroo Rider's Jacket and as you can see it definitely nails it in the style department, but also meets all the protective criteria you want in a motorcycle jacket.
The jacket uses lightweight kangaroo leather and they aim to exceed safety standards with the highest levels of abrasion resistance, cut resistance, and a design that can even be upgraded with future add-ons and upgrades for even more functionality and protection. You'll also find protective shoulder and elbow inserts, venting for airflow, Schoeller lining, and a protective Vectran layer, a material that you'll find in current NASA spacesuits.
