Riding Gear – Jane Motorcycles Driggs Jacket
“Our lives involve riding motorcycles every day and we needed a jacket that we could wear on and off the bike.”
From New York’s Jane Motorcycles comes the Driggs jacket a new everyday riding jacket that seamlessly blends streetwear styling with functional motorcycle apparel.
Designed and manufactured in Brooklyn, the home of Jane motorcycles, the Driggs motorcycle jacket is available in 3 colour-ways of black, tan and green camo. Unlike other jackets that target specific riders, the Driggs embodies timeless styling with a simple, classic cut suited to just about any style of motorcycle.
The jackets outer shell is constructed from sturdy, semi-waterproof 8.5 oz canvas with a comfort-focused inner lining of navy blue satin. The Driggs lightweight construction makes it cool enough for summer riding while a wax coating will keep the interior dry in light rain.
Lambskin details on the Driggs collar and pockets add sturdiness and additional styling details. Gussets in the back of the jacket allow 180-degree movement and 4 exterior pockets and 1 interior provide plenty of storage space. An adjustable waist strap allows for additional comfort adjustment.
Any jacket aimed at motorcyclists should incorporate safety into its design and the Driggs is no exception. Reinforced, double stitched seams help prevent bursts while the 8.5 oz canvas provides essential abrasion resistance. Most notably the Driggs has been designed to accomodate a full set of D30 armor (sold separately) that can be easily removed or installed.
