Dressing for a road trip rides a fine line of protection and style. For many, wearing the Harley-Davidson brand brings an air of biker-attitude while others swear by the quality of apparel from the famous motorcycle manufacturer.
Regardless, many motorcycle safety advocates recommend buying apparel made for riding. Harley-Davidson obviously feels you can have safety and style in the same piece of apparel with their latest offerings for both men and women riders.
Men's Ridgeway Waterproof Riding Jacket
Waterproof, lightweight and boldly styled, the new Men's Ridgeway Waterproof Riding Jacket from the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes Collection has riders covered on and off the bike.
Priced at $185, and available in S to 5XL and Tall, sizes this polyester bonded twill and fleece soft-shell jacket is rugged and warm, with Carbolex shoulder and elbow patches at high-impact areas backed by body armor pockets. The needed body armor to fill these pockets are sold separately.
It appears a lot of thought has gone into this motorcycle apparel. A zip-off hood with bungee cord and toggle surrounds the mock neck collar to battle drafts. Extended inner cuffs have thumbholes. The action back and slightly pre-curved sleeves help this jacket fit well while riding.
Other features include a bungee cord and toggle hem to block up-drafts, one chest pocket and two hand-warmer pockets, one horizontal interior pocket and one zipper vertical interior pocket with a media port.
Finally, 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material stripes on the sleeves and in embroidered appliqué graphics enhance visibility in low-light situations.
