Chester D3O® Leather Jacket



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 Chester Leather Jacket

With an asymmetrical front zipper, Chester is a British motorcycle classic. Using a premium cowhide and D3O® four-piece impact protectors, the Chester jacket has thoroughly modern protection in a vintage package. There are three colour options, black, distressed brown and a distressed green for a true signature statement. Each colour comes with antique brass hardware in the Merlin branded snaps, YKK® zippers and metal buckle adjustments. Chester has a supple and luxurious feel, enhanced by the diamond stitched quilt overlays.

Caring for your Chester 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.
