The Expedition jacket is ready for just that—a motorcycle trip to whatever far flung corner you feel like going. Built from the same uber-fabric as our perennial favorite Skyline Jacket—but just more layers of it—this jacket is highly abrasion resistant, and comes with more armor than any other product we sell. In addition to shoulder, elbow and back protectors, it also gets two smart chest panels—all of which are removable.
It’s also waterproof, and refreshingly it doesn’t rely on an internal membrane that sacrifices a soggy and heavy outer shell. This sucker is seam-sealed up the wazoo. And when all its various vents are zipped close, it’s as warm as you make it with supporting under-layers.
Open it up, though, and this jacket vents like no other—two half-body chest vents run from the shoulders to waist; pit-zip vents run from elbow to waist; two half-body back vents; and forearm pockets with mesh liners allow for ample airflow throughout the jacket.
Designed with the ergonomics of long distance touring in mind, the Expedition is constructed with articulated elbows and shoulders for ease of movement. Two-way zipper and interior bottom hem cord allows you to adjust how the jacket sits while in the seated position. Adjustable velcro straps at the waist, bicep, and forearm allow the jacket to be cinched down or loosened for layering underneath, while velcro cuffs can be adjusted to accommodate gauntlet or short gloves.
It also features a lot of storage options, including: a zippered right chest pocket, zippered arm pocket, front drop pocket, zippered front pocket, and two zippered hand pockets—plus a large lower back pocket. A hidden interior pocket also gives you a place to store critical valuables, like a passport and pertinent travel documents.
For riding at night, a reflective strip and piping have been incorporated into the back of the collar and along the shoulder seam. This innovative material reflects bright white when lit by a pair of headlights, but remains matte black under normal lighting conditions.
Designed in tandem with the Expedition Motorcycle Pants, a zipper attachment allows the two pieces to be worn together as a full body suit.
