Bull-it Jeans has made a name for itself, producing quality denim motorcycle jeans – and now, it’s branching out to jackets. I’ve been wearing its new Tracker jacket, which was first introduced to the range in 2017.
Basically, it’s a traditional style denim jacket, that wouldn’t look out of place in your local on a Friday night – but it also comes equipped with an abrasion resistant Covec SR6 liner (which covers 60% of the jacket) and some well-placed armour at the shoulders and elbows to help protect you should the worst happen and you take a tumble. There’s also a pocket to fit an optional back-protector.
More specifically, the jacket uses a denim and twill external layer, combined with a special non-melting Covec textile abrasion-resistant liner which is tested and certified to deliver an impact abrasion resistant time of 6.26 seconds – and it meets incoming PPE regulations for motorcycle clothing, with an AAA rating for its abrasion resistance.
It also comes with a wick-away mesh-liner, which works with the Covec SR6 liner to help keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There’s air vents on the front and rear, internal belt loops, to allow you to connect the jacket to a pair of trousers – and, the denim is also finished with a water-repellent membrane, so it’s capable of taking a light soaking in its stride too.
