When you put on the RIDER JACKET, you are wearing a jacket built to honor grandfather and his life. We built the jacket with his characteristics and values. Resilience. Bravery. Honesty. Dedication. Strength. Durability. Toughness. We incorporated modifications from numerous Wisconsin moto-club jackets of the era into one jacket. We applied a banded collar, slimmed the sides, lengthened the back, and extended the arms...then we made it from wax canvas made by the same family for the US military for seven generations. Go ahead - try to wear it out.
