The Barbour International Short Motorcycle Jacket is the new, lengthily named daily-wear jacket from the storied British gear manufacturer.
Each one is made from waterproof 8oz waxed cotton and has a removable quilted gilet, quilted elbow patches, and very importantly – CE-certified D30 elbow, shoulder and back armour. The jacket can be worn with or without the armour fitted, allowing it to be either fashionable evening wear or motorcycle safety equipment.
