Garage NEW GEAR

Dickies Can­vas Jacket £149.99 Work-style gear packs proper rid­ing pro­tec­tion for retro fans

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Work­wear com­pany Dickies are branch­ing out into full-scale mo­tor­cy­cle cloth­ing with a range that takes inspiration from the café racer scene.

This jacket is de­signed, like most of the range, to look like or­di­nary work gear but to per­form like full-on rid­ing kit.

The Can­vas jacket is equipped with a breath­able wa­ter­proof mem­brane and there are pock­ets for shoul­der, el­bow and back ar­mour. The pock­ets are welded to keep out wa­ter and there’s an in­ner wind cuff be­hind the main zip to block drafts.

It’s made from 100% cot­ton yarndyed can­vas with re­in­force­ments at the sleeves and shoul­ders and has a cross­pat­tern in­ter­nal lin­ing and a se­ries of in­ter­nal pock­ets to carry essen­tials.

The Can­vas, which is also avail­able in a sleeve­less form, is one of three jack­ets from Dickies, be­ing joined by a fuller-length wa­ter­proof and breath­able jacket called the Wax, which is belted at the waist with a high col­lar and will be avail­able for £219.99.

The third jacket is a bomber-style num­ber that’s fully lined with Kevlar to pro­vide abra­sion re­sis­tance and pock­ets to ac­cept Force­field Ce-ap­proved body ar­mour. The price on the bomber jacket is to be con­firmed.

Ar­mour is an op­tional ex­tra in all three jack­ets, with the Force­field kits cov­er­ing back, el­bow and shoul­der cost­ing £69.99.

The jack­ets will be joined by a se­ries of lined denim jeans and ar­moured shirts, which are pop­u­lar with ur­ban rid­ers and café racer own­ers.

The Dickies Mo­tor­cy­cle Out­fit­ters range will be avail­able, along with a col­lec­tion of ca­sual cloth­ing, by the end of the sum­mer.
