Merlin Christmas Gift Guide
The festive season is upon us and time is beginning to run short. Don’t worry if you haven’t even begun thinking about doing your Christmas shopping yet (believe me, I haven’t either), we’ve got your back.
We’ve pulled together some must-have Merlin items that every biker in your life needs, catering for every budget. Tap on each product to learn more.
A little can mean an awful lot. Check out our range of smaller items perfect for stuffing a stocking with.
Hartgate Neck Tube
An absolute essential in every biker’s wardrobe. Made from 100% polyester, our Hartgate neck tube is soft to the touch and, most importantly, easy to wrap.
Take the edge off the winter chill or just disguise helmet hair – our 100% merino wool Moseley beanie adds subtle Merlin branding to two comfy winter colours – grey or burnt orange.
Wax Cotton Tin
If your biker already has a waxed cotton jacket, then it’s important they take care of it to keep it looking and performing at its best. Our wax cotton tin in 200ml allows complete reproofing of a wax jacket in six easy steps. Also available in 50ml for rewaxing smaller areas.
Small but mighty…
Just because these items are small in size, it doesn’t mean they don’t come from the heart.
Radford Core Tee
Every biker loves a bike-related tee and this one hits the mark. Available in white or black with subtle Merlin branding to the chest and hem, the Radford tee is not only good for your look, it’s great for the environment too as it’s made from 100% organic cotton.
Kingsley Long Sleeve Waffle Knit
When the temperature drops, your biker mate will be glad you bought them this. The Kingsley long sleeve is made from 100% organic cotton in a waffle knit construction, adding a twist to a regular long sleeve. Available in black or white.
Sycamore Pull Over Hoody
Say it loud and say it proud. With the large-print Merlin logo on the front, the Sycamore hoody shouts about our brand, without being too over-the-top. What’s more, the 100% organic cotton fleece construction makes it super comfy. Available in black or khaki.
Ranger D3O Waterproof Glove
Opt for a glove with a difference. The unique Halley Stevensons® wax and cowhide leather combined construction really makes the Ranger gloves stand out. They have D3O® knuckle protection and are waterproof and thermal, so can be worn in cooler climates. Available in black or olive.
Atacama Base Layers
All-new for 2022, the Atacama base layer top and trousers are made from a Merino Wool/Polyester blend for top levels of moisture wicking, breathability and durability. The top and trousers are bought separately, but if you’re feeling generous you could always opt for both. It is the season of goodwill, after all…
Platinum Laminate Over Jacket
Sick of hearing your biker bud complain about getting soaked all the time? Here’s your answer. The Platinum over jacket uses laminated waterproofing for guaranteed protection from the elements, and reflective panels help improve visibility. There’s also a matching trouser if you’re feeling particularly kind…
Go big or go home!
If you’re really feeling flush this festive season, take a look at these picks…
Sherbrook D3O Single Layer Riding Shirt
Lumberjack, but make it motorcycle. An incredibly popular style in the Merlin collection, Sherbrook’s single layer construction and D3O® Ghost armour makes it super comfy to wear both on and off the bike. Available in three colours; grey, red or green.
Edale Cotec Jacket
Know a biker who takes on the vintage style but needs thoroughly modern biking protection? Made from technical Cotec wax, using space-age NASA technology in the Outlast® thermal lining and pre-fitted with D3O® armour, Edale is bang up-to-date. Available in black or olive.
Mahala D3O Explorer Jacket
The new staple in every adventure biker’s wardrobe. At least it should be. Cordura® outer? Check. Reissa® waterproofing? Yep. 125g thermal liner? You bet. Seven-piece D3O® armour to include chest? Absolutely! Available in black/olive or black/sand.
Longdon Heated Gloves
Give the gift of toasty digits this Christmas. The Longdon heated gloves have three heat levels for the perfect level of toastiness, and the two rechargeable 2200mah batteries last up to four hours with mid-level usage.
Alexander D3O Single Layer Riding Jeans
For on and off bike styling, look no further. The single-layer construction of the Alexander jeans rids you of the adult nappy feeling, while the flexible D3O® Ghost and overall CE Level ‘AA’ rating will leave you riding in confidence.
Zoey D3O Single Layer Riding Jeans
No shrinking and pinking to see here, folks. The Zoey jeans carry all the same great features of the mens Alexander jeans, but in a flattering female-specific cut. Currently only available in black.
