Take the rich heritage of a world renowned leather jacket and race suit maker and cross it with the youthful ingenuity of a dialed-in Brooklyn moto-shop and something good is sure to come out. The proof is clear with the 'Robinson Jacket', a collaboration between Vanson Leathers and Union Garage NYC. The American made jacket, produced in Fall River, Massachusetts, is a waxed cotton motorcycle jacket built with everyday use in mind. The Robinson is made with a rugged 10.10 oz Martexin water-resistant waxed cotton shell making this an heirloom quality jacket that your kids will fight for.
Aside from style, the jacket is loaded with technical features, each one with the comfort and safety of the rider in mind. While the addition of hidden leather panels in the jackets' elbows and shoulders offer extra abrasion resistance, added protection is provided by removable CE-certified D3O armor for the shoulders, elbows and back making this a jacket that classically blends timeless style with modern day safety. The Robinson is only available from Union Garage NYC.
