Merlin Torsten/Isla

The Isla and Torsten are, respectively, Ladies’ and men’s versions of a modern take on the traditional leather motorcycle jacket. Made from 1.1mm and 1.2mm cowhide leather, the jackets have a TFL coating which reflects UV radiation from sunlight, resulting in an up-to-25oC temperature reduction for the wearer in hot weather. To further aid hot-weather comfort there is a fixed mesh lining plus mesh inserts for the zipped vents front and rear, and perforations in the leather of the inner arms. Cooler temperatures can also be tamed thanks to the provision of a removable diamond-stitched 125g gilet thermal liner.

The Isla and Torsten come fitted with D3O armour fitted at the shoulders and elbows, and there is a pocket to take an optional D3O Viper Stealth back protector. Overall, the jackets get a AAA CE rating.

Both jackets come in a choice of brown or black at £349.99 SRP for the Isla, or £379.99 SRP for the Torsten.
