The Nomad jacket is part of the Merlin Explorer collection and brings a refreshing heritage approach to the adventure/touring market. Merlin creates some of the best retro-inspired riding gear out there with no compromise on quality, so it’s only right that this character is present on the Nomad jacket. A true classic aesthetic in the form of a shorter cut waxed cotton blouson, the Nomad is adventure-ready thanks to a bumper-pack of features.

Crafted from a lighter-weight 8oz Cotec tech wax outer (an exclusive Halley Stevensons® and Merlin collaboration), the jacket features a removable 125g thermal liner with an attached Reissa®Active waterproof membrane, ensuring you stay both warm and dry on whatever trails you find yourself on. The Nomad offers unrivalled levels of protection in the way of a pre-fitted 7-piece set of D3O L1 armour, featuring inserts at the elbows, shoulders, back, and chest. This means it's primed for the high levels of protection that a lengthy adventure or tour requires.

With plenty of adjustability for that perfect fit you need for all-ride comfort, and storage pockets for your riding essentials, the Nomad jacket is incredibly versatile, just as at home on the city streets as facing the rigours of a wild adventure. A jacket-to-jean connecting zipper is compatible with Merlin gear, but a euro hoop connector strap is also present so you can universally attach the jacket to your trousers, and prevent it from riding up.

Rugged and ready, oozing with class and heritage, and equipped with everything you need for the open road, the Nomad Explorer Jacket is there for your next adventure.
