The new Robinson Motorcycle Jacket by Union Garage NYC is a fully-armoured waxed cotton jacket designed to evoke the spirit of the gear worn by motorcyclists during the formative years of two-wheeled transportation.
The jacket has a full range of CE-certified D3O elbow, shoulder and back armour couple to a durable 10.10 ounce Martexin waxed canvas shell providing excellent breathability as well as waterproofing for those times when you find yourself caught out, the interior lining is red plaid and a close look at the Robinson gives a clear indication that it’s been built very, very well.
The Robinson is the result of a collaboration between Union Garage NYC and Vanson Leathers, each jacket is made by hand in the US by the American workers at Vanson – easily some of the finest motorcycle jacket manufacturers in the world.
