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 Chigwell Lite Waxed Cotton Jacket
Designed for riding in even the hottest of weather, Chigwell Lite features mesh panels to the front and rear for optimised airflow. Constructed from Merlin-exclusive Cotec, which is produced by Halley Stevensons, Chigwell Lite is lightweight, at only 8oz opposed to the 12oz of a traditional wax cotton. The jacket is finished off with a five-piece D3O armour set (shoulders, elbows and back), double-A CE approval and a short YKK jacket-to-trouser connection zip. Available in sizes S-4XL.
Caring for your Chigwell Lite jacket
To care for your jacket, begin by lightly brushing off any dirt or soil, and use a cold damp cloth if necessary to wipe down the jacket. Clean it in this way regularly to maintain its appearance, but don’t be too harsh as the wax will be removed. You can re-wax the jacket with our Merlin Wax Cotton Tin when it loses its waxed finish and water begins to soak into the cotton rather than bead off. Please do not machine wash, tumble dry or use hot water on your jacket. Full care information can be found in our dedicated care guide: Merlin Wash & Care.
