Draggin Jeans HYDRO – casual motorcycle wear just got uber practical…
Renowned motorcycle apparel manufacturer, Draggin Jeans, have taken their most popular jean/jacket combo and taken it up to the next level by making it totally waterproof.
The jacket is based on the Classic Rider with modifications such as waterproof zip enclosures for the two hand and two front pockets. In anticipation of struggling to get a grip on the main zip, Draggin has added a large toggle to help when wearing gloves.
The cuffs are velcroed and under that is a thumbhole cuff so the glove can sit over the arm lining yet under the external cuff – warm and waterproof! It also retains the Classic Riders’ internal pocket.
With a cooling and breathable mesh lining the addition of CE armour on the shoulders, elbow and back nicely round off a well thought out and practical motorcycle jacket.
The Hydro trouser can be secured to the jacket via the inbuilt zipper and with no visible seams (like Draggin’s Next Gen) the four waterproof zipped pockets give a good amount of storage for all the bits and bobs that I certainly carry around.
In the execution of a great idea, there’s a waterproof leg cuff around the ankles to stop any osmosis of water.
CE armour for the hips and knees are included.
The HYDRO jacket and trouser combo now mean that you don’t have to carry the ‘just-in-case’ waterproof stash jacket; with Draggin’s very own ROOMOTO Kevlar weave stitched securely all around the main abrasion points to augment the armour will give anyone that comfort factor.
Add in Draggin’s excellent styling and manufacture and you have yourself a 3-season outfit.
Both items are machine washable 🙂
