The Wax Rider Canvas Coat is inspired by my grandfather and early Harley Davidson® motorcycle club jackets. The rider coat pays homage him, who commuted weekly from the Mohican Indian Reservation to weld for Harley Davidson® during the 1950's and 1960's. When you wear it, you are wearing a coat built to honor grandfather and his life. We built the coat with his characteristics and values. Resilience. Bravery. Honesty. Dedication. Strength. Durability. Toughness.
The coat is made of 10.10 oz. Army Duck wax canvas, Rancho Arroyo blanket fabric by Pendelton®, custom quilted satin sleeve lining, custom Ginew® hardware, and features a modern fit. It features two front side pockets, two front chest pockets, and a banded collar. Each coat is sourced and constructed in the USA. Also available in Navy and Charcoal Grey.
Modifications from numerous Wisconsin moto-club jackets of the era have been incorporated into one coat. We applied a banded collar, slimmed the sides, lengthened the back, and extended the arms. The wax canvas material has been made for the US military by the same family for seven generations. Go ahead - try to wear it out.
