Merlin Explorer Collection
The Merlin Explorer Collection has been designed to complement the rise in accessible, do-it-all motorcycles, along with the increased desire to get out and travel thanks to nearly 18 months of COVID-19 lockdowns. Also behind the design – the rise of younger motorcyclists, with Instagram’s heritage scene rapidly growing and the build-up of motorcycling in popular culture encouraging more young people to get their licences. Explorer offers rugged styling, durability and protection while incorporating the signature Merlin styling using only the best materials and components, such as Halley Stevensons® waxed cotton, D3O® armour and Cordura®.
Merlin Exile D3O® Explorer Jacket
The Exile jacket uses Halley Stevensons® 100% organic ripstop cotton in its construction, making for a futureproof, durable garment that will last well into the riding seasons. Using 45% less CO2e and 50% less water during production, Exile is sustainable without compromising safety. A suite of D3O® armour is pre-fitted to the shoulders, elbows and back, while a jacket-to-jean connection zipper allows easy attachment of Merlin jeans.
Caring for your Exile jacket
To care for your jacket, remove all armour from the shoulders, elbows and back and also any removable inner liners. Use a lint-free brush or cloth to really get into any especially dirty areas, then hand-wash the jacket with a mild or diluted detergent in lukewarm water. Full care information can be found in the dedicated care guide here: Merlin Wash & Care.
