We took two must-have pieces for the winter season—the leather moto jacket and the down vest—and morphed them into a single garment. As a bonus, we then combined two different fillings for one solidly warm result. The body is constructed from a high-density nylon and filled with premium 90/10 goose down for warmth at your core where you need it most. The sleeves are crafted from Italian calfskin and insulated with 60 grams of Primaloft Gold. The end product combines tough biker looks with the insulating softness of down. This is one jacket winter won’t want to mess with.
About Goose Down
Ounce for ounce, goose down is the finest known lightweight insulator, natural or synthetic. Its unique three-dimensional structure creates thousands of tiny air pockets, which, when trapped by the down fibers, provide the superior insulating ability that it is known for. Quality goose down is also extremely resilient, with the ability to be compressed and then spring back to its original shape. Goose down is highly breathable compared to other materials. It allows water vapor to pass through, wicking it away through the filaments while retaining the warmth in the air pockets. We use a premium 90/10 blend of goose down for our jackets. The higher down-to-feather ratio provides greater insulating properties and lighter weight.
Primaloft is a patented synthetic microfiber insulation, originally developed for the US army as a water-resistant alternative to goose down. The ultra-fine fibers of Primaloft form air pockets that trap heat from your body, keep the cold air out, and provide an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. If insulation gets wet it loses these air pockets and so the ability to insulate, but the Primaloft fibers undergo a waterproof treatment so they retain their insulating properties even when wet. We use Primaloft Gold in our garments, the highest standard of all synthetic insulations.
