The Malle London Expedition Jacket has been in continuous development for over 2 years now, including a 10,000 mile attrition test riding across the USA using early prototypes of the jacket.
The team at Malle London wanted to develop a new jacket that had all thew classic looks of a British waxed cotton design, with modern safety engineered into it from step one, rather than just added on as an afterthought.
Each Expedition Jacket has a 100% waterproof, integrated abrasion resistant Kevlar lining, removable CE approved Knox armor, waterproof triple stitched seams, and an outer shell made of extra strong British oiled cotton from the oldest waxed cotton mill in Scotland (circa 1887).
