When Is A Motorcycle Jacket Not A Motorcycle Jacket But...A Motorcycle Jacket?

When Is A Motorcycle Jacket Not A Motorcycle Jacket But...A Motorcycle Jacket?

When It's an Ashley Watson Eversholt Jacket! 

 

14/07/2017

Last Night we were at The Bike Shed in London for the Official Launch of Ashley Watson's Eversholt Jacket and we weren't let down.

One of our members had already seen one of the earlier prototypes and stated that they would have bought it there and then. But for Ashley it wasn't enough. His Eversholt Jacket would only be launched once it had reached his high standard of perfection.

 When you first see the Eversholt it's evident that this isn't a jacket that's just been designed in some sterile studio and then sent off to a far flung manufacturer. Every detail in this jacket has been meticulously conceived, designed, produced and tested by Ashley himself.

From his Biography

"Two winters, ten prototypes, five thousand miles. Sharp winds, driving rain. Mountains, deserts & the places in between. When Ashley put pen to paper and sketched a motorcycle jacket that he’d searched for but couldn’t find, he had no idea of the journey it would take him on.

The result of this process is the Eversholt Jacket. The first & only motorcycle jacket in the world that's made in England and combines a full Dyneema high abrasion resistant lining, removable D30 armour and a fully waterproof seam sealed membrane. Form & function in equal measures. Motorcycle clothing, the way it should be."

Features

This Jacket has more features than a Triumph Explorer XCA! 

The First thing that strikes you is the styling, this doesn't look like your everyday jacket and yet thats exactly what this is! In fact it's more of an everyday jacket then any other motorcycle jacket we've seen. There's no garish branding, the jacket is branding enough. This jacket is just as suited for when you're off the bike as it is on. And yet when you straddle your bike you're reassured by the facts you have an 8oz Cotton, abrasion resistant Dyneema lined jacket with our favourite removable D3o Armour in the Shoulders and Elbows.

But the attention to detail is the clincher for us here at The Royals. The large Billow Pockets have poppers at the bottom so there's room for them to expand if they're full or the bottom will just snap down to keep them streamlined and not flap about if they're emptier.

The Horn buttons, each with the Ashley Watson name delicately inscribed along the edge that are nice and large so they can be managed with gloves on.

The Brushed Wool Collar, Internal Sleeve and Neck Storm baffles to keep the elements where they're supposed to be.

The Cut of the jacket is the perfect length too, not too short that it shows off your Mariana Trench and not too long that it acts as a Bear Grylls style rain catching reservoir. 

I even reached into one of the vast Billow Pockets and pulled out a small tin branded with Ashley Watson's logo which contained a pair of ear plugs. Every detail of a riders comfort has been explored and looked after.

I think you've probably gathered by now that we're huge fans of the Jacket here at The Royals. This Jacket makes us feel like we've gone into a tailors and asked for a bespoke motorcycle Jacket but without the bespoke price tag!

 Ashley Watson's website states that "We believe this is a new direction for motorcycle clothing", We're very inclined to agree!
