The Aether x Spidi Eclipse Motorcycle Jacket is the result of a collaboration between two of the more interesting gear manufacturers in the motorcycle arena. Designed by Aether then handmade by the talented artisans at Spidi, the all-leather jacket has a box-quilted upper, a yarn-dyed cotton lining and a full range of elbow, shoulder and back armour.
The lining and armour all all removable, meaning the jacket can be worn either sociably or in the saddle and the arms are pre-curved to ensure that there aren’t any pinch-points when hunkered down behind the dials.
