The WAX CANVAS RIDER JACKET is inspired by my grandfather and early Harley Davidson® motorcycle club jackets. The rider jacket pays homage to my grandfather who commuted weekly from the Mohican Indian Reservation to weld for Harley Davidson® during the 1950's and 1960's.
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.
The WAX CANVAS RIDER JACKET is made of 10.10 oz. Army Duck wax canvas, custom Ginew® hardware, and features a modern fit with added length for riding comfort. The jacket has two front side pockets, two internal pouch pockets, two front chest pockets, and a banded collar. Each jacket is sourced and constructed in the USA.
