Customized yak leather rider's jacket designed and made by Nine Lives in Japan.
With better tensile strength than cowhide, this 1.2mm yak hide is exceptionally robust and resistant to abrasion due to its compactly woven collagen fibre and closed grain. Yak is also highly breathable as well as being buttery soft.
The elastic-banded bi-swing back pleated shoulders and two-way zipper provide optimum maneuverability.
An internal "sunglass pocket" has been positioned to sit below the ribcage for comfort, and has been designed to assist the reaching hand while preventing the frames from wedging horizontally.
Finished with combination leather oil, zipped cuffs, coffin back yoke, leather trim, and microsuede lining. This jacket is a beautiful example of form and function.
