Mahala Pro 3-in-1 D3O® Explorer Jacket



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 Mahala Pro 3-in-1 Jacket

Providing ultimate levels of versatility, the Mahala Pro offers a 3-in-1 layering system to cope with all weather conditions. The multi-layer system can be removed or re-attached as needed, and for a true summer jacket all liners can be stripped out and the large chest vents pinned back for cool airflow when it’s needed most. Constructed from a Merlin-exclusive Cordura® cotton with a water repellent finish, Mahala Pro is backed by D3O® shoulder, elbow, back and chest protectors.

Caring for your Mahala Pro 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.
