One thing you’ll never want to do while riding a motorcycle is go unprotected – even in the hotter months. It’s just not worth losing your skin or worse. But heavy armored jackets can be extremely uncomfortable when the mercury starts rising. Which is why the folks at Crave offer a lightweight alternative shirt/jacket hybrid called the Montana.
With the exterior made from 100% wool, the handsome handmade Montana shacket is far more comfortable in warm weather than any leather or high-tech armored motorcycle jackets. But it also has a little trick up its sleeve: it’s lined with Kevlar to still keep you extra protected. And if you’re worried that it isn’t going to be safe enough in a bad spill, it also has pockets on the back, elbows, and shoulders to insert protection pads. As if that wasn’t enough, it also has a full complement of pockets, including a phone/wallet pocket on the sleeve, a zippered wrist pocket for passes or identification, and a hideaway internal zippered pocket. Get your hands on this warm-weather motorcycle shacket for $279.
