Merlin never reduced the range or specification for female riders, as proven in the highly successful Brocton jacket. The Hadley is the latest addition to the ladies Merlin range and is a fashion focussed piece of kit for spring or summer riding. As such the fit comes in tailored which as with all leather will stretch and soften during its use moulding to the body shape. Despite it’s very European fashion style, leather finish and cut Merlin has not cut back on the specification.
Riders will find cross stitch detailing panels on both shoulder and elbow panels, black metal YKK zips, adjustment to the collar, hem and cuff plus a removable diamond stitch thermal gilet liner, finished with Marton Mills Scottish tartan panels. Armour includes Italian soft mould, flexible, comfortable Safetech CE Level 1 armour to shoulders and elbows, with a foam filler insert to the back pocket which allows riders to upgrade to CE back insert protection.
