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 Perton Cotec Jacket
Part of the Merlin Tech Wax Heritage line-up, Perton offers an alternative to riders who want the wax cotton look without the waxy feel. It’s constructed from Cotec, which is a Merlin-exclusive fabric developed in collaboration with Halley Stevensons. It provides the look and protection of wax cotton minus the waxy handle, but is also lighter and more breathable for better performance in warmer climates. Perton also features a Reissa waterproof membrane and a thermal lining with Outlast temperature-regulating technology. D3O® tri-vented armour sits at the shoulders and elbows, and there’s a pocket for an optional D3O® Viper back protector if required.
Caring for your Perton Cotec 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.
