Merlin Heritage Collection
The Merlin Heritage Collection seamlessly blends classic styling with modern protection to create a versatile selection of motorcycle clothing. We use a range of different market-leading materials, including Halley Stevensons® Waxed Cotton, D3O® armour and Reissa® waterproofing to ensure the highest quality. Our heritage collection also expands into leather garments for retro riders who want the old-school looks minus the signature feel of waxed cotton. Combining the best of British-made motorcycle clothing, our Heritage line offers a wide variety for both men and women.
Merlin Bristol Ladies Leather Jacket
With a front asymmetrical zip, this is a British motorcycle classic cut to a flattering women’s silhouette. Using a premium cowhide and D3O® four-piece impact protectors, the Bristol jacket has been brought bang up to date. There are three colour options, black, distressed brown and a distressed green, and each colour comes with antique brass hardware in the Merlin branded snaps, YKK® zippers and metal buckle adjustments. Bristol has a supple and luxurious feel, enhanced by the diamond stitched quilt overlays to the shoulders and back.
Caring for your Bristol leather jacket
It’s important not to let dirt build up on your leather jacket, and any dirt can be removed using a sponge or a lint-free cloth, cold water and a small amount of neutral soap. You can also use a specialist pH neutral leather cleaner, though we would recommend testing this on an inconspicuous area of the jacket first. Once wiped down, leave the jacket to dry in a well-ventilated area, away from a direct heat source. Full care information can be found in our dedicated care guide: Merlin Wash & Care.
