One of the most indestructible leathers and was used for pilot jackets like the A2 in WWII and the G1 during the Korean war.
It has excellent abrasion and tear resistance.
Perfect for an all weather motorcycle jacket.
It has the pleasant characteristic smell of natural resins and oils used during the tanning process.
It is buttery soft from the start requiring no break in.
It has a supple and slightly waxy hand. The thickness is 1.2mm, which translates to 3 ounces in weight.
The chestnut brown goatskin has rich and elegant color of chestnuts.The supple hand and characteristic small pebble like grain of the super premium goatskin molds to your body and develops a glowing patina with age. The amazing grain is natural and not printed or corrected in any way whatsoever. This characteristic grain gives goatskin a rugged look that is unmistakable and sets it apart from all other leathers.
On a new jacket, the leather tends to be a bit stiff and the jacket will feel tight at first but will soften with use and mold to the wearer's body becoming more comfortable.
Please wear the jacket gently at first and avoid going through the full range of movements immediately (stretching arms out, etc.).
This will avoid damaging the seams and will ultimately make your jacket last longer. The reason is that the leather fibers need to stretch and break in a bit to flex and give correctly at the stress points.
No leather care products are necessary for our jackets. The leather is very robust and will last a lifetime.
By following these simple guidelines the legendary qualities of this leather will show through with time.
