The Wild & Free Motorcycle Jacket by Black Arrow is a recent release in the rapidly expanding demographic of women’s moto-wear, possibly the most underserved segment in the hotly contested global market for motorcycle gear.
Black Arrow is the first company that I’m aware of that specialises in only producing gear for women – allowing them to focus 100% of their attention on getting their products to not only look and fit right, but to offer the same level of impact and abrasion protection you’d expect from any serious gear manufacturer.
The Wild & Free Motorcycle Jacket is offered in either black or tan cowhide leather with a 0.9mm to 1.0mm thickness, it has a cotton and mesh lining, Dupont Kevlar® in the sleeves and shoulders, CE-Level 1 approved protectors in the back, elbows and shoulders, YKK zippers, side buckle straps for adjustment, three zippered front pockets, an inside pouch pocket, and perforated leather panels for year-round wearability.
