The stylish and casual Drifter Explorer jacket from Merlin aims to help push the motorcycle industry forward to a greener future. Crafted with the eco-conscious adventurer in mind, Merlin uses 100% organic ripstop cotton from Halley Stevensons® that’s soft-tumbled for a vintage look and feel. The water-repellent finish is entirely fluorocarbon-free, and the Drifter is produced using 45% less CO2e and 50% less water, resulting in a sustainable, future-proof riding jacket.
The abrasion-resistant outer is backed by a high spec Texland Humax® waterproof and breathable membrane, designed to combat the worst conditions mother nature can throw at you, keeping you safe and dry when you need it most. Pre-fitted in the jacket are the barely-noticeable D3O® Level 1 elbow, shoulder, and back armour inserts, with pockets for chest armour if you’re looking for an upgrade.
The Drifter is equipped with plenty of storage options for your essentials, with high-quality YKK zippers throughout, and magnetic side-entry pockets. There are plenty of adjustment tabs on the arms and hem so you can customise your fit, and a connecting strap and zipper help the Drifter stay in place. The tank guard on the central zipper is a more than handy feature, stopping you from damaging your pride and joy while you ride, and the double fold-back collar is ideal for summer riding .
Merlin does classic-styled adventure gear to perfection. The Drifter is no exception, and we love seeing this more sustainable approach to manufacturing in the motorcycle world. A more than accomplished explorer style that will take you from city-street downpours, to harsh, back-country expeditions.
