If you’re so anxious to hop on your moto that you simply don’t have time to button up Freenote‘s Rider Jacket, you’re in luck. The SoCal-based brand has just introduced a zippered version, the RJ2, in black Martexin waxed canvas (and a burgundy waxed one is forthcoming, so mark your calendars for February 1st). The RJ2 has a more subdued aesthetic than the Rider, channeling an old mechanic jacket moreso than a Type II.
The patina-ready, weather-resistant waxed canvas exterior will keep out the chills and drizzle, and it’ll age nicely while doing its duty. Japanese-sourced southwestern print lining adds some extra warmth and pizzazz on the inside, while cotton/satin lined sleeves ensure you don’t end up with scrunchies for shirtsleeves. And thoughtful, functional details like an interior pocket and elastic bands at the arm gussets make life in the RJ2 that much easier.
Feeling zippy? Pick up an RJ2 from Lone Flag for $400.
