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 Outlaw D3O® Explorer Smock
Sustainable and stylish, the Merlin Outlaw D3O® Smock is a different take on the traditional motorcycle jacket. Making a move towards using more sustainable materials in garment construction, Outlaw is made from 100% organic Halley Stevensons® ripstop cotton with a fluorocarbon-free water-repellent finish. Backed by a highly waterproof and breathable Humax waterproof membrane, five-piece D3O® armour to the shoulders, elbows and back and a detachable draw-cord hood, Outlaw looks just as at home on the trail as it does in the city.
Caring for your Outlaw 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.
