The Merlin Hamlin looks like a normal hoody that's great for everyday wear and never goes out of style. There is, however, a lot going on under the hood of this inconspicuous garment! The Hamlin is fully lined with a genuine Dupont Kevlar® abrasion resistant layer, as opposed to many other hoodies of this kind that only have patches of anti-abrasion material in critical areas. It comes equipped with CE Level 1 armour in the shoulders and elbows, with a pocket for an optional back protector. And it doesn't stop there: the Hamlin has a zip and belt loop to connect it to your trousers to avoid it riding up when you're hunched over on the bike. The soft yet heavy duty cotton outer layer is treated with a Huntsman water repellent coating. It won't keep you dry in an outright downpour, but you'll be happy it's there when it starts drizzling. All in all Merlin continues its winning streak with this armoured hoody, perfect for riding around town and not looking out of place after you park the bike.
