Product Description

It is thanks to the Hixons’ leather finish, texture and appearance that it became one of Merlin’s most successful garments. Along with a great fit the Hixon became the ‘go to’ option for spring summer riding.

Alton has been introduced to sit alongside the Hixon, with the exact same leather finish, available in black and brown also but with a less café racer style. With removal of the off white racing panels and addition of filled horizontal sections with zip guard strap the Alton has a different feel all together. Inside you will also find a complimentary horizontal stitch gilet thermal lining, again different to Hixon with its classic diamond stitch liner.

The CE shoulder and elbow armour comes as standard again and a foam back pad in a rear pocket, ready for the rider to upgrade to CE should it be desired. High quality YKK zips are used throughout and there is also a short connecting zip to match this jacket up in the same with our Route One denim jeans.

With an aniline (naked) leather there is no requirement to use a specialist after care leather treatment.

    I have purchased a few leather jackets in my time and found them heavy and stiff. This jacket from new fits me perfectly everywhere and gives great movement and no stiffness so it’s really comfortable. It keeps the wind out and although the inner liner comes out and seems a bit thin it actually works really well when it’s a bit nippy out there. Zips and fasteners are good quality and the pockets are all in the right places. It looks really classy on especially with blue bike jeans. There is a nice vented pocket to let the air in too.
    A great spring / summer/ autumn jacket I highly recommend it and lots of sizes available which is a real plus!
