With its Italian-inspired neo-retro styling cues, premium full grain 1.3-1.4mm thick AAA cowhide leather, removable armour and lining and quality YKK zippers, the Merlin Holden will be a jacket owners will appreciate for decades.
The CE-approved shoulder, elbow and back protectors are all removeable, as is the 100g thermal gilet liner.
Merlin finishes its products of beautifully too, with Black Marlin branded press studs, a subtle dark blue contrast on the chest block leather finishes and stripes. There’s also a short zip to connect to pants.
