The crew at Tobacco Motorwear have been producing riding gear since 2014. Their jeans feature a great balance of style and protection and they’ve applied that same methodology to their latest product, the McCoy motorcycle jacket. Inspired by the look of WW2 military field-style jackets Tobacco have created a highly functional, feature-packed jacket which they are currently launching via a new Kickstarter campaign.
Tobacco has constructed the McCoy from hard-wearing 17oz, water-resistant waxed canvas. Similar to denim the canvas wears with age to accentuate to the jackets vintage look over time. 8 pockets, 4 external and 2 internal, provide plenty of storage space. Adjustment straps tailor the fit and female riders are catered for with a ladies version that’s cut to suit the female form. On the inside, the jacket is lined with soft flannel for comfort while double-stitched seams provide superior strength. Above all else, Tobacco has strived to create an ‘everyday wear’ jacket that you’ll be reaching for everytime you jump on your bike.
“THIS JACKET IS THE REAL DEAL”
– Tobacco Motorwear
As with any item of riding gear, function is just as important as form. With the McCoy, Tobacco has paid close attention to how the jacket performs on the bike. Gusseted shoulders, zip closed side vents, expanding sleeve openings and a magnetic collar stay provide adjustability for all weather riding conditions. Anti-scratch coated closures protect your pride and joy from scratches and sturdy YKK zippers guarantee a long lifespan. As for safety, the McCoy features 5 internally accessible pockets for installing removable D30 armour.
The McCoy is available in both men and women’s styles. Buyers can also choose from a variety of different colourways and the jackets are designed and constructed in the USA.
By pledging to the McCoy Kickstarter campaign now you can save a huge $300 USD off the proposed retail price. Pre-ordering also means your McCoy motorcycle jacket will come with D30 armour included. Tobacco is aiming to have the new jackets shipped out to pledgers by November 2018.
