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 Ranger Waterproof Gloves
The perfect accompaniment for any explorer, the Ranger D3O® gloves carry all the features required for short and long haul trips. The Halley Stevensons® 12oz waxed cotton upper meets a cowhide leather palm for enhanced abrasion-resistance, which is further increased by reinforcements to key impact areas such as the scaphoid. A Sympatex® waterproof and breathable membrane teams with thermal insulation to keep hands warm and dry, while D3O®’s flexible knuckle protection features to add protection. Available in two colours to match with the Explorer jackets – black or olive in sizes S-3XL.
Caring for your Ranger gloves
To maintain your leather gloves, you can use a neutral soap and sponge or a lint-free cloth to wipe over the surface. Please do not leave them to soak in a bucket, as you would if you were cleaning a textile motorcycle glove. You can read full care advice on the dedicated guide on our website: Merlin Wash & Care.
