Mahala Raid D3O® Explorer Jacket

SKU: MWP165 Categories: ,


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 Raid D3O® Explorer Jacket

Completing the Mahala line-up, the Merlin Mahala Raid jacket provides stacks of cool airflow for riders looking to explore hotter climates. The large mesh panels drag in cool air to keep it circulating around the body, while the abrasion-resistant Cordura® water-repellent outer combined with five-piece D3O® armour offers confidence in protection. Inside, a fixed mesh lining helps to wick away moisture leaving the rider cool, dry and comfortable, and multiple adjustment points allow a personalised fit for the rider. Pair with the matching Mahala Raid trousers and Mahala Raid gloves for the ultimate warm weather riding set.

Caring for your Mahala Raid 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.
